An endpoint protection platform (EPP) is an endpoint security solution deployed to endpoint devices (PCs, laptops and mobile devices) to detect malicious activity, prevent malware attacks and respond to cyberattacks and alerts. Ideally, an enterprise’s unified endpoint security framework includes an EPP with an endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution working together to protect against cyberthreats effectively.
Endpoint Protection Platform Features
EPPs should have features such as:
- Sideloaded application detection to ensure apps loaded onto mobile devices are scanned and malware prohibited from running.
- Phishing and malicious URL detection to prohibit users from accessing dangerous websites or sites with embedded phishing elements.
- Dashboard reporting, allowing for end-user monitoring and real-time alerting through a centralized console for quick remediation. Cloud-enabled EPPs enable security teams to monitor and manage endpoint security from anywhere.
- Integration with other endpoint security and enterprise network tools, including EDR, extended detection and response (XDR) and mobile device management (MDM) solutions.
- Offline protection, warding off malware even when devices aren’t connected to the internet. Though EPPs should be cloud-based, malware prevention technology should be localized at the endpoints to prevent cyberattacks when devices are offline.
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning to prevent new and evolving cyberthreats based on file behavior and patterns.
