What Is Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)?

An Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) is a suite of protection programs that detect and remove threats at the network's endpoint (smartphones, printers, tablets, laptops, etc.). EPP runs on endpoint devices and relies on various techs to keep operations safe, such as antivirus programs, data encryption, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and behavioral analysis. Most top-tier EPPs are cloud-managed and rely on cloud data for advanced monitoring and remote remediation.
