Endpoint Protection

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. Moreover, endpoint protection may include measures to minimise your network's vulnerability by mitigating or bypassing endpoints that heighten the overall risk level.

Endpoint encryption utilises encryption algorithms to protect files stored on endpoint devices. This crucial element of an endpoint security strategy acts as a barrier to safeguard sensitive data from physical threats. 

A widely used method is full-disk encryption, which involves encrypting an entire disk or device, whether it's the hard drive in a Windows or Mac laptop, a mobile device, or a portable USB drive. In all these cases, the contents of the drive are fully encrypted, ensuring data security while 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, eliminating 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 centre. 

Notable endpoint encryption options include:

  • FileVault: This provides built-in Full Disk Encryption for macOS devices.
  • BitLocker: BitLocker Drive Encryption integrates with the operating system, addressing data theft or exposure threats from lost, stolen, or decommissioned computers.
  • Bitdefender GravityZone: Bitdefender GravityZone consolidates various security services into a single platform, reducing the cost of establishing a secure endpoint environment.
  • Symantec Encryption: Organisations often turn to encryption technologies due to regulatory compliance requirements, data privacy concerns, and the need to protect sensitive information and maintain their brand reputation. Symantec Encryption helps address these challenges.
