Know About Endpoint And Endpoint Protection Software

Hey there, I guess there is a little misconception about them, although both kinds of software, are used to ensure security. An antivirus software is basically a set of programs along with proper documentation (software is a program plus documentation) which scans your device against ant malicious threat, virus, malware, etc. and prevents them.

An endpoint protection software is another class performing similar functions at endpoints of any connection. For example, if you are connected remotely to any of the networks, then your device and the network it is connected to, both become an endpoint. These critical points may serve as an entry point to the potential threats, and therefore, there is a class of software in to protect and monitor these endpoints.

A few examples of such software are ‘Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection,’ ‘Panda Security Endpoint Protection,’ ‘AVG Cloudware,’ ‘Bitdefender GravityZone Business Security’ and many others. Hope it helps!
