Endpoint Security

endpoint-securityNetworks require a controlled framework methodology when remote computers such as laptops or wireless enabled devices connect to them. This is the purpose for Endpoint Security (EPS).

EPS helps provide your administrative teams more control when it comes to managing the security for these devices connecting to your network. Securing possible infection routes for a viruses or malwareattack to take advantageof.

Cybercriminals penetrating your network would have limited access points to break into, thanks to EPS planning risk management. Employee authorization required in using role-based permission settings, will also benefit from this.

CyberSec delivers the technology and process expertise needed to help your administration teams limit and cap potential back-doors and port weaknesses that good practice methodologies such as Endpoint Security help to provide.

Standard Prerequisites – Control

EPS requires equipment or software specific standards before allowing someone toconnect toyour corporate environment. An example of this could be using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution that requires your home PC logging into your company, to have the latest in anti-virus protection.

It can also stop you over VPN if you are trying to log in with a Linux PC versus a Microsoft PC, depending on your company’s operating system support requirements.

These prerequisite policy settings, like VPN OS or anti-virus software, enhances your threat prevention from foreign, unsupported cybercriminals or devices trying to access your systems.

Endpoint security challenges include:

  • Implementing a non-choking standards setting for your users without impacting their remote access needs
  • Developing Intrusion and Prevention Detection solution and support strategy
  • Establishing defense-in-depth layered strategies working with established access standards put into place
  • Establish gateway points for all routers, switches and server systems on the topology
  • VLAN Quarantine planning to isolate potentially dangerous devices through regulated permissions
  • Create on-going policies and procedures along with IT Security Controls to help manage the lifecycle of the Endpoint Security Framework

SaaS Cloud Topology

Software-as-a-Service Cloud (SaaS) security best practices are becoming more important as businesses seek to leverage the benefits from Cloud technologies. SaaS falls into the framework for Endpoint Security with the host and client model structured more as your data center being the “client” and the SaaS provider being the “host” with the same EPS attention to company requirements.

Our assessment professionals with years of Cloud-interfacing experience will provide a reliable plan ensuring your secure channel-of-communication to the vendor.

Leveraging Virtual Desktop Technologies for EPS

Virtual emulation products such as VMWare ™ can help provide an easier way to implement remote EPS enforcement standards.

By using Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) technology, essentially your application “screen-scrapes” to a remote workstation thatis housed on a Host Server in your data center. This fixed approach encapsulates all your support needs.

What’s great about this, is that your administrative teams manage the entire workstation environment for OS type, versions, anti-virus software, etc. The user doesn’thave to install anything except for the small client program that allows them to emulate over the connectionjust like a mainframe terminal, into the EPS managed environment.

CyberSec has the architecture experience to recommend the best EPS-strategy possible, which can best fit your company’s Security needs.

Why hire an Endpoint Security Expert?

There are many Endpoint Security solutions available on the market today including special areas focusing on the growing market for Mobile Endpoint Security. Vendors will only go so far with helping you implement these platforms, effectively, to interface with your other systems.

CyberSec helps fill these gaps and gives a complete, end-to-end assessment and implementation plan so all of your organization’s EPS defense-in-depth layers have full product lifecycle roadmaps.
