What is Endpoint Security Solutions?
Endpoints refer to any hardware devices that have the ability of data storage and / or data processing. Common endpoints include desktop PCs, laptops, USB storage devices, tablets and mobile phones. Many Endpoint Security Solutions provide different functions to protect devices against data leakage, data loss and other threats. Examples are Antivirus and Data Encryption.
Universities are particularly vulnerable to information security incidents because of their openness in information access policies and richness in information assets. Carrying and working with unencrypted sensitive data on our portable devices sometimes are inevitable. Universities therefore must employ right tools and strategies to ensure their data only accessible by authorized staff members. Various Endpoint Security Solutions are now available to our staff and you can opt in these solutions to meet your work needs.
