What's The Difference Between Antivirus And Endpoint Security?

Nowadays, you need to protect all of your data along with any sensitive data you collect from your clients or customers. As technology advances, so does the software designed to protect your data from threats or attacks. Antivirus protection has been around for a long time, and now there's also Endpoint security. What are these two, and are there any differences between them? 

What Is Antivirus Software? 

Antivirus software, also known as anti-malware, is a computer program that prevents, detects, and removes malware. Originally, antivirus software was developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. 

What Is Endpoint Security?

"Endpoint Security" or "endpoint protection" is an approach to protecting computer networks that have been connected remotely to the client devices. Incorporated endpoint devices, such as laptops, tablets, mobile phones, loT devices, and other wireless devices, create attack paths for security threats. Endpoint security attempts to ensure that such devices follow a definite level of compliance with industry standards. 

Which One Is Best For You? 

Ultimately, it is best to have both readily and easily accessible. Both security protocols will protect your networks and devices from the inside out, ensuring that no data is breached in the event of a cyber attack. If you need to pick one from the two, we recommend going with Endpoint security as that will save you more time and money in the long run, along with keeping your data private.
