Endpoint security refers to the set of measures and practices used to protect devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets, from cyber attacks and data breaches.
Endpoint security in the context of IoT refers to the set of measures and practices used to protect IoT devices from cyber attacks and data breaches. As IoT devices are often resource-constrained and have limited processing power and memory, endpoint security for IoT requires specialized security controls and technologies that can operate in these environments.Endpoint security for IoT devices involves a range of security controls, such as access controls, encryption, and secure boot, as well as policies and procedures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. These security controls are designed to prevent unauthorized access to the device, protect against malware and other cyber threats, and ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data.Examples of IoT devices that require endpoint security include smart home devices, wearables, and industrial control systems. These devices often collect sensitive information and require robust security measures to protect against cyber attacks and other security threats.
