Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)
What is an Endpoint Protection Platform?
Also known as EPPs, an Endpoint Protection Platform is a set of software tools that combine endpoint device security functionality into one software product.
EPP core functionality includes protecting the endpoint device from viruses, spyware, phishing, and unauthorized access, but may also include a personal firewall, data protection features—such as disk and file encryption—data loss prevention, and device control. Advanced EPP solutions can integrate with vulnerability, patch, and configuration management capabilities. An EPP is primarily designed for protecting endpoint devices in an enterprise IT environment.
