As mobility and multi-device use become key components of the modern workplace, organisations need to be implementing strategies that protect endpoints from all angles.

According to a recent survey, 88% of IT managers believe endpoint security should be a top priority for organisations[1]. Without effective measures in place, businesses face the unwanted prospect of data loss and downtime across their infrastructure.

At SXiQ, we’ve compiled 3 ways you can combat cyber threats and secure your endpoints, so your business-critical hardware is kept secure.

 

Application Protection

Your organisation relies on applications for collaboration and business-led initiatives. Bugs or security flaws can infect these platforms and put your company’s data at risk. Ensuring your infrastructure is secure can help combat these threats before they occur.

HP’s Elite Dragonfly x360 touch laptop with an Intel® Core™ i7 vPro® processor has an integrated suite of security programs your business can leverage. With HP Sure Run and self-healing software, you can keep critical applications running even if malware tries to shut them down.

 

Mobile Security

It’s now common practice for employees to work from more than one device, with most using both a laptop and mobile and/or tablet. Understanding end-user activity is crucial to protecting your network from potential cyber threats and solidifying your security posture.

Deploying applications that can monitor device activity is a way your organisation can stay ahead. With fully managed, controlled infrastructure, your organisation can leverage greater visibility across a device fleet and track real-time threats.

 

Cyber Security Awareness

Teaching your employees about cybersecurity is a great way to protect your endpoints. As the most vulnerable source of an attack, equipping your staff with knowledge on how to spot a potential phishing scam or cyber threat can better secure your device fleet.

Leading an awareness day that highlights acceptable use of the company’s network and enforcing policies around cybersecurity are other key initiatives you can take to protect your business’s infrastructure.

At SXiQ, we’re proud to partner with HP to bring clients tailored security solutions. We believe the right mix of devices and software can strengthen your organisation’s security posture and help combat cyber threats across your IT landscape.
