This Is the Endpoint – Ping Podcast Episode 12

Episode 12: This Is the Endpoint

While we’ve spoken of the firewall as the cornerstone of a secure network setup, it’s not meant to work alone. Every device (or endpoint) added to your network brings new potential for vulnerability, and some endpoints, like mobile devices, are often not sitting behind your firewall anyway. That’s why having top notch endpoint protection is vital. On this episode of Ping: A Podcast, Andrew and Kevin welcome Mike Weaver with Sophos, to talk about the endpoint security landscape and provide a closer look at some key features of a top-notch endpoint protection offering from Sophos, Intercept X.

Learn more about Intercept X and see an example of a Threat Case in action.

Our Network Engineer Nick Petriko offers a tip to make setting up Intercept X on your network a breeze. See all of the expert security services our certified engineers offer.

In our Headlines, we talk about a widespread NFL Twitter hack, how online attackers are taking advantage of the coronavirus outbreak – and popular music – to spread malware, and why the U.S. government is grounding drones left and right.
