Australians lost a combined sum of $176.1 million to all types of scams in 2020, up 23.1% from the $142.9 million reported in 2019[1]. Phishing in 2020 was once again the most reported type of scam, but with much larger numbers than in 2019.

An endpoint security strategy is essential because every remote endpoint can be the entry point for an attack.

According to Deloitte, 91% of hacking attacks begin with email.

With the pandemic driving more employees to work remotely, many organisations have shifted to laptops and bring your own device (BYOD) instead of desktop devices.

Businesses struggle to protect their systems without interfering with the legitimate activities of their employees. While technological solutions can be highly effective, scammers are continuously refining their attacks and users are likely to fall victim at some point.

What is Endpoint Security?

Endpoint security, or endpoint protection, is the cybersecurity approach to defending endpoints – such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices – from malicious activity.

According to Gartner, an endpoint protection platform (EPP) is a solution used to “prevent file-based malware attacks, detect malicious activity, and provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to respond to dynamic security incidents and alerts.”

What’s considered an endpoint?

An endpoint is any device that connects to the corporate network from outside its firewall. Examples of endpoint devices include:

  • Laptops
  • Tablets
  • mobile devices
  • Internet of things (IoT) devices
  • Point-of-sale (POS) systems
  • Switches
  • Digital printers
  • Other devices that communicate with the central network
