Crowdstrike Endpoint Security & Protection
What is Endpoint Security?
Endpoint security, or endpoint protection, is the cybersecurity approach to defending endpoints – such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices – from malicious activity.
According to Gartner, an endpoint protection platform (EPP) is a solution used to “prevent file-based malware attacks, detect malicious activity, and provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to respond to dynamic security incidents and alerts.”
WHY CHOOSE FALCON TO PROTECT GCP WORKLOADS
