Endpoint Security


Shrink Your Attack Surface by Hardening Your Endpoints

What Is Endpoint Security?

PCs, tablets, mobile phones, IoT devices – they’re all endpoints, and their numbers are growing. 

Some of the endpoints on your enterprise network are corporate, but roughly two-thirds of employees use personal devices at work. Not only is every endpoint a target for hackers, each one is also susceptible to unintentional information sharing and user error.


That’s where Optiv can help. Our experts leverage their decades of experience to find the optimal blend of services and technology to harden your endpoints.

Types of Endpoint Security


  • Antivirus (AV)
    • Antivirus software is the most basic form of endpoint security. It is designed to seek, detect, prevent and/or remove software viruses and various types of malware.

  • Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) / Managed Detection and Response (MDR)
    • EDR solutions supplement traditional endpoint security technology by enabling security analysts to record key activity on endpoints, improving their ability to investigate threats both reactively and proactively. MDR is essentially EDR delivered as a managed service and allows organizations of all security maturity levels to reap the benefits of EDR, even if they don’t have in-house expertise.

  • Extended Detection and Response (XDR) / Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR)
    • XDR tools are relatively new on the security scene. These solutions are designed to expand visibility beyond what EDR can provide by aggregating data from endpoint, network, email, cloud, SIEM/SOAR and other solutions then leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to correlate activity and identify true threats. MXDR allows organizations to outsource all or part of the management of an XDR tool to a third party.
