Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)

An endpoint protection platform (EPP) is a security platform that’s implemented on remote devices to prevent cyber-attacks and security breaches. An EPP uses cloud-managed data to protect endpoint (remote) devices such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets, and desktops from malware attacks, malicious activity, and other types of security threats.

For small and large businesses, employee-owned remote devices such as mobile phones and laptops are especially vulnerable to threats. Because it’s a cloud-based platform, an EPP is particularly effective because it can identify and resolve threats and attacks from anywhere in the world, across a variety of applications. Plus, its cloud-based platform enables it to deliver solutions more quickly, using up-to-the-minute, real-time data and security updates. EPP software typically provides a variety of security solutions, including anti-spyware, antivirus tools, and personal firewalls. In addition, an advanced EPP also uses stream processing, a highly sophisticated system used in identity fraud detection.
