Endpoint Security

What is endpoint security?

Endpoint security is a monitored antivirus product with a centralised control system tailored to each business.

Endpoint security can be thought of as a suite of security software which includes antivirus that is controlled centrally by IT Administrators. It will prevent, detect, and remove malware (malicious software) from a computer (endpoint) or network but also has more advanced features that a non-business user probably wouldn’t require.

These include features such as centralised management, fast deployment to multiple devices, and the ability to protect servers, desktops, laptops, physical and virtual machines.

These advanced security features are a must-have in a business environment due to being a more lucrative target for data and financial gain.

It is important to regularly update security software to ensure that it can effectively protect against new and emerging threats. New threats emerge constantly and security software needs to be updated to recognise these new threats.

Endpoint security allows us to manage, update and deploy security for you remotely.

Malware Examples


Ransomware is a type of malicious encryption software which essentially holds your data hostage until you pay the attackers monetary demands. The attacker will generally state that if you pay their demands, they will decrypt your data but this is not always the case.

The attacker will usually request payment via cryptocurrency (most likely Bitcoin) but even if the ransom is paid there is no guarantee the attacker will honour their guarantee of your data being decrypted.

You may have heard about the WannaCry randomware which brought the NHS to a standstill back in 2017.

There is also the fact that if you do pay you will be funding criminal organisations, your computer systems will still be infected and you’re more likely to be a target in the future.

The best way to prevent ransomware is to have your systems up-to-date, an antivirus solution in place and most importantly, having secure backups of your data.

A computer virus is a type of malicious software that is designed to infect and spread to other computers, typically through the Internet or other computer networks. Once a virus infects a computer, it can cause a wide range of damage, such as corrupting files, deleting data, stealing data or slowing down the computer’s performance.

Computer viruses are typically spread through infected files or software programs, and they can be disguised as legitimate files or programs. It is very common to have viruses spread through email via attachments.

Once a virus has infected a computer, it can be difficult to remove without specialised software tools such as antivirus.


Cryptojacking is malicious software that hides on a device to use the that devices computing power to mine cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies are a form of decentralised digital currency, examples include Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Monero.

Crypto mining, or cryptocurrency mining, is the process of verifying transactions on a blockchain network and adding them to the public ledger, also known as the blockchain, in exchange for a reward in the form of cryptocurrency.

Crypto mining nowadays requires a significant amount of computing power hence the reason why cryptojacking is utilised.

The best way to protect your computer system/s from cryptojacking is to implement a robust, tried-and-tested security solution.
