What is endpoint security and why is it important?
Endpoint security is the practice of guarding the endpoints in your organization against attacks or vulnerabilities. Corporate endpoints can include servers, workstations, mobile devices, laptops, and desktops, and attackers commonly view these as their entry points into the network. Even a poorly guarded end-user workstation can become a weapon, as threat users claim illicit access to resources and infiltrate the network with malware. This is why it is important to strengthen your organization's endpoint security and the best way is with an endpoint security tool. Deploying an efficient endpoint security solution barricades prevalent cyberattacks aimed at endpoints and simplifies security management for your organization.

Endpoint MFA Add-on in action
Here's how user-based Windows logon MFA works
- Users logging in to Windows machines first prove their identities using their AD domain credentials.
- Next, they authenticate themselves using a time-sensitive authentication code sent via SMS or email, biometrics, or through a third-party authentication provider.
- Depending on the administrator's configurations, they may need to authenticate themselves through one or more methods.
- Finally, users log in to their Windows machines once they have successfully authenticated themselves.
