- End-user education
Why Cybersecurity Is Required?
Basically, the role of cybersecurity is to ensure the protection of information and systems from major cyber threats!
Types of Cybersecurity Threats
It is a challenging task for IT personnel to keep up the pace with evolving / new technologies, threat intelligence, and security trends.

Cybersecurity: Protecting All the Endpoints
Endpoint security and Endpoint protection are the latest buzz-words for businesses across the globe and even for households as they shift to more workflow processes. Besides that, today a lot of things are stored in the cloud and the applications are also functioning cloud-based. Thereby securing an entire network can be really challenging as they strive to protect every digital device communicating with the network. Cybersecurity aids in preventing data breaches, cyber attacks, and identity theft. Lets see more on Endpoint security…
What is Endpoint Security of Endpoint Protection?
Èndpoint security or Endpoint protection prevents the potential entry point for those threats. The devices that are controlled and maintained in the security process include smartphones, laptops, tablets. Online criminals make use of these devices to attack an organization’s network with malicious software which could help them steal data from the network systems.
In the present time, the threat is even greater as organizations all over the world are switching over to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). As a matter of fact, it is noticed that mobile-based threats are increasing in recent times.
