From servers to laptops and smartphones, endpoints are an important part of your network. Deploying proper endpoint security is essential to execute an effective incident detection and response as well as vulnerability monitoring.

Organizations install endpoint agents to provide the necessary visibility into every device that connects to your network. Each endpoint agent collects vital intelligence about the device on which it is installed before transmitting it back to the threat detection platform.

With this, security teams are able to monitor, detect, and resolve threats and vulnerabilities across your network, no matter where they come from.


You can deploy endpoint agents to monitor the level of risk across remote devices. These devices might not be present in the office, but they still pose a threat because they connect to your network.

An endpoint agent can monitor all your assets and employees in real-time. It can help you keep up with the intensive cybersecurity demand of your global organization.

Endpoint agents monitor every mouse movement and keystroke, location data, network context, and other background identity signals. These data then get processed continuously to confirm the user’s identity. If the endpoint agents detect something suspicious, they will automatically act on the threat and alert the security team.

Cloud and Virtual IT Infrastructure Monitoring

Assets come and go, making it harder to monitor them and find the source of some cyberattacks. However, endpoint agents can keep tabs on new devices as they get introduced to your system. It makes risk assessment easier, even on temporary assets.

Assessing Risk Without Credential Scanning

The best endpoint agent can perform vulnerability assessment without asking for credentials. It overcomes the employees’ often reluctant response to provide administrator access to the IT team. Instead of failing to conduct a risk assessment because of lacking credentials, endpoint agents help

Assessments may also run more smoothly if conducted using an endpoint because it does not have the characteristic of the usual vulnerability assessment scanner. It behaves like any other program in the device, allowing you to monitor the endpoint without disrupting its behavior.

Acting on a Threat

Real-time monitoring alerts you of any suspicious activity or potential threat so you can act on it. The endpoint agent can contain it by stopping the process and isolating it from the rest of the network. You can program the agent to provide these automatic responses in case of threat detection.

Other Benefits of an Endpoint Agent

An endpoint agent is a lightweight background app installed on a device’s operating system to constantly assess it for vulnerabilities. It has a small footprint so the agent does not disrupt and burden the corporate endpoint.

Deployment is easy because you can streamline it across all other endpoint agents. It would be almost impossible and resource-consuming to deploy agents one by one. Imagine how you’ll do it if you have thousands to millions of assets worldwide.

The best thing to do is to patch it. But first, standardize the deployment process to one endpoint agent. Then, you can replicate the process and deploy the rest of the agents. It will cut down weeks or months from your deployment process.

Efficient deployment is possible if you find an endpoint agent that works well with your current deployment processes. At least you will not need to scramble for another deployment solution.

Using an endpoint agent allows you to obtain reports that you could have gotten from physically observing a device. You can check its software, hardware, and registry configurations or modifications.

If you use unified endpoint agents, you can maximize your deployment efforts because they can perform more than one function. They can gather more data out of a device, thanks to their interoperability feature.
