Technology & Product Review for Endpoint Protection Solutions



Case Scenario: I am submitting this assignment on TurnItin. Please Don`t just copy it from somewhere.

Red Clay Renovations (the “client”) has requested that your company research and recommend an Endpoint Protection Platform which will provide host-based protection for the laptop PC’s used by its construction managers and architects. These employees design and manage construction projects using a Web-based project management system. The laptops are also used to access web-based corporate email servers and additional web-based applications used for internal business operations. Their laptops are running the Windows 8/8.1 operating system and cannot be upgraded to Windows 10 due to compatibility problems in a business-critical, proprietary software package. The Windows 8/8.1 laptops currently use Microsoft Windows Defender and Microsoft Windows Firewall to provide host-based protection against malware, spyware, and intrusions.

The client’s IT manager wants an Endpoint Protection product that is easy to use, is deployable on individual laptops as host-based protection, and automatically updates itself (patches and virus definition files). The “automatic” updates could be a problem since the laptops are rarely connected to the company’s networks. Instead, the employees use an intermittent cellular connection to access the Internet while visiting customers and construction sites.
