Cybersecurity Tip #29: Implement Endpoint Protection

#CybersecurityTip: Protecting your clients’ endpoints is essential in today’s IT landscape, where threat actors are increasingly targeting MSPs to exfiltrate their network. During such attacks, hackers use endpoints (workstations, computers, smartphones, laptops, printers, etc.) to deploy malware. Social engineering attacks are designed to infect a workstation, for example, in order to spread the infected files into the entire MSP network. Protecting clients' endpoints from malicious activity is highly recommended for all MSPs. In addition to implementing a privileged access management tool to your security stack, learn how endpoint protection (endpoint security) can add extra benefits.


Conduct an endpoint assessment:

  1. Identify all endpoints & known vulnerabilities
  2. Identify where sensitive data is stored

Adopt a multi-layered security solution:

Today, a multi-layered security solution is an important aim for all MSPs; endpoint protection can be a part of that service offering. Endpoint protection typically includes:

  • Antivirus/Anti-Malware,
  • Firewall
  • Encryption
  • Update & Patch Management
