Protect your customers’ endpoints and networks from threats like malware

Opportunistic hackers love to attack endpoints because laptops, tablets, and smartphones tend to offer easy access to core systems. To make matters worse, the number of endpoints businesses must account for is multiplying. Cyber threats can be incredibly costly, and MSPs need the right endpoint security tools to combat them on behalf of their customers.

N-able N-central® is an efficient, powerful, and scalable remote monitoring and management solution that provides everything you need to provide high-quality support to your customers. The integrated Security Manager feature is specially designed to help keep your customers’ endpoints safe.

Signature-based scans use the most up-to-date virus definitions to defend against existing malware, while rule-based and behavioral scans uncover emerging and undiscovered malware. Proactive notifications and in-depth reports on all your endpoints help you react quickly and isolate the threat if malware is detected.

Deploy antivirus to endpoints for customers across multiple sites with ease

In complex networks with numerous endpoints, it can be challenging to ensure all devices, workstations, and servers receive antivirus protection. For MSPs with multiple customers and sites to monitor, there have never been more endpoints to track. Even when successful, antivirus installations and updates can be time-consuming and repetitive.

The security manager feature in N-able N-central makes deployment and configuration of antivirus across thousands of endpoints easy. You can create custom profiles for endpoints and servers that contain standard actions like scan schedules, antivirus updates, virus definition downloads, and more. When it’s time to deploy, you can do so automatically by bulk installing antivirus on endpoints across multiple sites. N-central offers default deployment rules to make the process even smoother, or you can create your own rules based on specific customer needs.

If you’ve tried other endpoint security software before and still have remnants of it on your system, N-central can also automatically uninstall competitive solutions and prevent any installation conflicts. This saves time and helps ensure a headache-free transition to a more comprehensive EDR solution.

Prevent cyberattacks with policy-based endpoint protection and autonomous action

Today’s cyber threat landscape is vast, complex, and constantly evolving. As soon as a new threat is mitigated, cybercriminals are already well on their way to finding a new vulnerability to exploit. MSPs must stay up to date on the latest threats to keep their customers safe—but that can be hard to do with a busy client roster. The N-able N-central integrated endpoint detection and response feature helps you stay on top of new threats without adding more to your plate.

This EDR solution uses policy-based endpoint protection to automatically neutralize threats at the endpoint and help prevent them from compromising core systems. N-central also gets better at preventing threats as time goes on. Advanced machine learning determines the best way to respond to a threat and adjusts those responses over time based on your customers’ evolving needs.

Finally, the artificial intelligence data with N-central is stored with the endpoint so you can access it offline—no more worrying about connectivity issues during an update.

Detect evolving threats to customer endpoints with powerful insights and alerts

N-able EDR, powered by SentinelOne, is an integrated feature of N-central that helps MSPs prevent, detect, and respond to evolving threats to customer endpoints.

Threat information is available at a glance so you can execute key remediation actions as quickly as possible. Real-time alerts point you to the relevant areas of your customers’ system whenever a threat is detected or neutralized for faster troubleshooting and greater transparency. AI engines analyze multiple data points to identify threats and determine if a response is required.

For future analysis and troubleshooting, N-central displays aggregated threat data, such as the current number of active threats or the number of threats found during a certain period of time. This helps you make data-driven decisions that will continue to enhance your customers’ cybersecurity over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is endpoint security?

What is endpoint security?

Endpoint security refers to the practice of securing the entry points of end-user devices or “endpoints.” Many cybersecurity experts consider endpoint security to be a company’s first line of defense against a breach because without it, hackers can use endpoints to gain access to critical core systems.

In the past, endpoint security best practices were typically limited to traditional antivirus software. Today, they have evolved to include protection from malware, emerging cyber threats, and much more.

Common endpoint security software features include:

  • Machine learning and behavioral learning
  • Embedded firewall management software
  • Data backup and data loss prevention
  • Email protection
  • Web security
  • Disk encryption
  • Reporting capabilities

What can be considered an endpoint?

What can be considered an endpoint?

Any device that is connected to a network can be considered an endpoint. Thanks to the growing popularity of the BYOD movement, the number of devices that connect to a company’s network can quickly reach the hundreds of thousands. Common endpoint examples include laptops, mobile phones, printers, and servers.

The recent IoT trend has also redefined what can be classified as an endpoint. Smart watches, voice-enabled digital assistants, and even some cars can now be connected to the company network and come into contact with sensitive information. With all these possible entry points for hackers, MSPs have more endpoints than ever to manage and secure.

Why is endpoint security important?

Why is endpoint security important?

Endpoint security is important because endpoints are often exploitable by hackers. Devices like smartphones and personal laptops are secured and managed by the user, and these users often don’t have the same cybersecurity concerns as the company at large. Vulnerabilities go unpatched, weak passwords go unchanged, and hackers have plenty of opportunities to gain access to thousands of poorly managed endpoints.

Endpoint security helps MSPs better protect their customers from malware, viruses, and other emerging threats with constant monitoring. With endpoint security software, it becomes much easier for MSPs to adhere to endpoint security best practices by automating actions and harnessing the power of artificial intelligence.

How does endpoint protection work?

How does endpoint protection work?

Endpoint security software works by making it possible for MSPs and system administrators to control security for all of a company’s endpoints. MSPs can use endpoint security software to manage policy settings, deploy antivirus and malware protections, patch vulnerabilities, and more.

The specifics of each EDR solution will vary, but many of the best endpoint security software options are cloud-based and feature advanced machine learning or behavioral artificial intelligence capabilities that continuously monitor your customers’ networks to catch emerging threats. MSPs should look for endpoint security software that comes equipped with a wide variety of automated actions in order to make the most of their time and effort.

What is the difference between EDR and managed antivirus?

What is the difference between EDR and managed antivirus?

EDR solutions are tools designed to help you protect your customers’ endpoints from a wide variety of cyberattacks by making it easier to identify suspicious behavior. Essential features include machine learning, disk encryption, email protection, password management, and more.

Managed antivirus (MAV), on the other hand, is software that is only designed to protect a system from viruses. Managed antivirus uses threat signatures and scans to constantly monitor the health of your managed network, making it an excellent choice for staying up-to-date on the latest viruses.

However, EDR solutions are more effective at combating today’s highly sophisticated cyber threats than MAV, and they generally offer more comprehensive features.
