Also called endpoint protection in the world of network security, endpoint security describes the practices and methodologies adopted for the safeguarding of corporate computer systems and networks that can be remotely accessed via wireless gadgets (called client devices), such as laptops, mobiles, desktops, tablets, notebooks and the like.

General components of an endpoint security system include client software and security software. The former is installed separately on every wireless device that is employed to access the corporate network from a remote location. Security software, on the other hand, is a part of the security system that is positioned on a gateway or server and which can be accessed and managed centrally.
