FREMONT, CA: Like the traditional systems, cloud-based endpoint security software protects the endpoint devices and provides network security. The tools include desktops, laptops, servers, mobile devices, and any technology that connects to the internet. The cloud-based solutions are hosted by the vendor having businesses and accessing it via the internet and not form their in-house servers. This method brings along a vast array of benefits, which can prove to be beneficiary for small and medium sized businesses.
The following lists the benefits of cloud-based endpoint security software:
Lesser Number of In-House Resources Required
Unlike typical on-premise solutions where the company is entirely responsible for hosting and maintaining the software, the cloud-based solutions host on the vendor’s servers. He also excludes the need to hire extra human resources, to procure space, and to pay a higher electricity bill.
A vendor can monitor the customers’ networks and also analyze the cyber threat data by leveraging a cloud endpoint security system. With the extracted information, the vendor has a better understanding of the threat targeting multiple networks. This data can be used to build the database and enhance detection, which helps in catching zero-day threats.
Traditional solutions can keep audits of users and devices that have accessed privilege levels of data. Still, in the conventional systems, the safety of these records is determined by the frequency of the data backup. The Cloud endpoint security software stores the logs in the server, to ensure data safety even if the hardware malfunctions.
The selection process of any software can be a difficult task, but if careful and thorough research is done, the possibility of successful implementation is high.
