Endpoint security is a safety method that is applied through locking down of endpoints such as PCs, tablets, and phones among other network-enabled devices, to safeguard networks. What separates endpoint security from the simple PC protection is that the security features on the endpoints are managed essentially by corporate IT. These security measures are run in two layers:
- There are software agents who work in the background on the endpoints.
- A centralized endpoint security system which observes and manages the agents.
