Endpoint protection safeguards your devices, whether malware is maliciously installed by hackers or unintentionally by unsuspecting users. The process of an endpoint protection solution starts by identifying potential risks on endpoints, continuously monitoring them, and evaluating the extent of the threat. When a threat is detected, the system can autonomously isolate and eradicate it, employing automated procedures tailored to your business's system. Additionally, endpoint protection may include measures to minimize your network's vulnerability by mitigating or bypassing endpoints that heighten the overall risk level.

Endpoint encryption employs encryption algorithms to safeguard files stored on an endpoint device. This integral component of an endpoint security strategy serves as a protective barrier for sensitive data, shielding it from physical threats.
One prevalent method is full-disk encryption, which encompasses the encryption of an entire disk or device, whether it's the hard drive within a Windows or Mac laptop, a mobile device, or a portable USB drive. In all these scenarios, the entirety of the drive's contents is encrypted, ensuring data security at rest.
Endpoint security disk encryption profiles streamline the management of settings relevant to a device's built-in encryption method, such as FileVault or BitLocker. This targeted approach simplifies the task for security administrators, as it eliminates the need to navigate through unrelated settings. While it's possible to configure the same device settings via Endpoint Protection profiles for device configuration, these profiles include extraneous categories of settings unrelated to disk encryption, potentially complicating the configuration process.
To access endpoint security policies for disk encryption, navigate to the "Manage" section within the Endpoint Security node of the Microsoft Intune admin center.
Notable endpoint encryption options include:
