Considerations for a security concept with servers as endpoints to protect users

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have a question regarding a coherent security concept with ESET products.
We use ESET Endpoint Protect and Server Security.
It is clear to me which product exists for which purpose. Unfortunately, however, the roles of the systems are not always entirely clear. Especially in the security context, an endpoint is a computer system that is used by an end user and therefore all measures defined according to the security concept must be guaranteed.
According to this definition, such an endpoint can also be a Windows server, for example. Maybe because it's easier in virtual environments like ESX or because it's e.g. is a virtual terminal server. The reasons are varied.
I hope it comes across correctly from my side that a client role does not automatically have to be a client operating system.
As mentioned again and again in this forum, there was always the answer that server security is the right solution, which I would like to question as the status quo.
The goal of a security product (regardless of its product name) must be, in addition to protection against malware, to protect the user. Not only in Germany, for example, underage trainees and interns have to be protected from external content. I would also like to configure everything via a security product if possible.
Unfortunately, the server security, the web control, firewall and e.g. the protected browser.
All topics that I now either deal with via the infrastructure security solution or I take the unsupported route of installing ESET Endpoint Security on this handful of servers.
Since I really like the ESET products, it is very unusual that there is an apparent gap in the concept.
You might at least consider removing the installation lock from Endpoint Security at the customer's own risk. As is well known, the operating systems are not that different.

Thank you for some structural considerations!

Stay safe!

I fully support this, it would be nice to have web control and firewall included in server security as well
