Endpoint security enforces the use of the FortiClient End Point Security (FortiClient and FortiClient Lite) application on your network. It can also allow or deny endpoints access to the network based on the application installed on them.
Securing your endpoints is challenging. Malware-as-a-service (MaaS) models now not only help automate attacks but also analyze which security products detect which malware. This, coupled with the growth of ransomware by 35 times, as well as increased exploits, and lack of shared intelligence between disparate security products, results in slow threat response. And, lack of IT expertise and resources to effectively administer endpoint security and timely application patches can let threats into your network.
Compounding the problem, the number of IoT devices deployed across the enterprise network is proliferating rapidly. Most IoT devices were not designed with security in mind and have further expanded the attack surface.
