Given the rising popularity of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and wireless devices in industry-leading businesses these days, it’s important to make sure that your employees aren’t presenting easy entry points for cybercriminals into your business via their smartphones, tablets or laptops.
Do You Have Endpoint Protection?
For as much as IT allows your business to do, it can also present a number of threats to your business if it isn’t properly protected. Your business’ laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other wireless devices present opportunities for cybercriminals, or misinformed employees to put you at risk.
The best way to start strengthening your cyber defenses is with a comprehensive and reliable Endpoint Protection solution. This cybersecurity solution detects and eliminates threats as they happen. This is especially important if you currently rely on a free or basic antivirus solution, which can be easily circumvented.
Whether it’s malware, a virus, or another threat, the right Endpoint Protection solution will spot threats as they happen, and keep them from causing damage.

Optimizing your cybersecurity doesn’t happen by accident. It requires time, expertise, structure and a proven strategy tailored to your needs, to create a truly secure technology environment. That’s exactly what LaScala IT’s range of cybersecurity solutions, including Endpoint Protection, offer your company.
How Can Endpoint Protection Limit Risk?
It’s important to distinguish things such as antivirus software from endpoint security. While antivirus programs are tried-and-true defenses, endpoint security takes into consideration remote and localized access to the system. Having malware or ransomware protection in a phone will do little to deter a hacker who has the device in hand.
Endpoint security takes critical next steps that include intrusion detection, response protocols, and secures network access controls that are generally beyond antivirus capabilities. Endpoint protections are also customized to secure unique systems and device access in a way that the broader network is engaged and secured. These are ways endpoint protection improves cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity measures such as antivirus software, firewalls, and security protocols focus on specific portions of a company’s overall systems. A professionally implemented endpoint plan takes into account all the moving parts and places them under one secure umbrella. As a company expands and has an increased number of endpoint devices connecting with core systems, risks also uptick.
