Protect vital business information with SEACOM's endpoint protection services

SEACOM offers enterprises a range of information technology (IT) security solutions, including endpoint protection. We have partnered with leading security providers to ensure that our enterprise customers get world-class end-to-end protection for their internet, networking and computer systems.

Our endpoint protection is a cloud-based solution that delivers advanced anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware and firewall protection for your company’s computers and servers. SEACOM offers this service with pre-configured best practice policies that saves time during set-up and cuts the overall expense.

There are two major benefits of our endpoint protection services; the effective protection against viruses and web-based attacks, as well as the automatic blacklisting or whitelisting of applications used by employees. However, this solution can also be used to prevent targeted attacks and other threats; securing sensitive business information and your customer data.

What is endpoint protection, exactly?

Endpoints are the devices (laptops, tablets, computers and smartphones) that employees use to conduct business. Endpoint protection is a multi-layered approach that blocks threats and secures the entire network to which all of these devices are connected. Our cloud-based protection solutions allow employees to install the security programmes on each of their devices, giving them access to a secure firewall and other security applications.

These applications will include anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, email gateways and automatic detection and response to various cyber attacks. Our endpoint protection solutions also offer end-to-end encryption for added security. This is essential for data protection - if any emails are intercepted, the encryption will render the information unusable.

A cloud-based protection system is a cost-effective and agile option that can be set-up relatively easily. Hosting these security applications on a cloud-based server offers rapid response and remote access. It also allows a company to automatically back-up data and install updates with ease.

Why endpoint protection is necessary

According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), 70% of successful cyber attacks originate from the endpoint, or the computers used by employees. This statistic is likely to increase as modern businesses move to remote working and expand their number of endpoint devices. A multi-layered approach is now vital for organisations that are more exposed to cyber threats.

These threats and attacks often target business information, passwords and vulnerable data. The endpoint devices are usually the easiest targets for hackers and malware bots. Often, these attacks are difficult to detect and trace, so prevention by advanced security systems is the best solution. This is especially important when employees work from home and need to access secure business networks.

Effective endpoint protection is absolutely vital for large enterprises and businesses that operate from multiple locations. Protecting important information and data must be a priority for companies; any data leaks or attacks can cripple a business, especially if customers feel that their private information is at risk.

The cost of not protecting your network far outweighs the cost of world-class endpoint protection. Our endpoint protection solutions are guaranteed to improve your business security, especially if you have offices in other countries.
