Today’s modern networks have a huge range of ‘endpoint devices’ connected to them, from laptops and desktops to phones and tablets, and they ALL need protection. Through Lumina Technologies’ Endpoint Security solutions, we will keep them safe from cyber threats.
Endpoint security refers to securing endpoints or end-user devices such as desktops, laptops and mobile devices. Endpoints serve as points of access to a network and create points of entry that can be exploited by cyber criminals.
Endpoint security protects all points of entry from risks or malicious attacks. Businesses can ensure endpoint compliance with data security standards and can maintain better control over the growing number and type of access points to the network.
With the potential cost implications of cyber security failures so huge – for example, the cost of reallocating resources from business goals to addressing threats, the reputational cost of a large-scale breach, and the actual financial cost of a cyber threat – endpoint protection platforms have become regarded as must-haves in terms of securing businesses.
Why is endpoint security important?
Increasingly, businesses and their users are incorporating practices to make access to data more fluid, and flexible working is now a key consideration for any organisation. This has resulted in an increase in BYOD (bring your own device) and the need for policies around this. In addition, threats targeting mobile device access and networks create multiple endpoint vulnerabilities. Employees working from home or connecting to corporate networks to work on the go means that the enterprise network security perimeter is more vulnerable than ever before.
The threat landscape is also becoming much more complicated. Cyber criminals are always coming up with new ways to gain access, steal data and information, or manipulate users into giving out sensitive information.
In the past, most security breaches came in through the network. Today, however, threats are increasingly coming in through endpoints, which means just having network protection is not enough. Your organisation’s security must maintain greater control over access points to prevent the vulnerabilities that can arise through the increased use of remote devices.
What is an endpoint?
If a device is connected to a network, it is considered an endpoint.
An Endpoint Security solution should not work in isolation – it should be part of your IT Managed Services solution with centralised configuration, reporting and update distribution.
At Lumina Technologies, we use industry-leading antivirus/anti-malware software for each of your business’s endpoint devices. We also manage and maintain the appropriate software across all devices, and any software updates are distributed as soon as they are released.
As part of our service, we provide the management server to ensure we do not impact the performance of your own servers.
We will also provide comprehensive monitoring to ensure all your devices are up to date and any issues detected are investigated and corrected.
Our endpoint software is provided as standard, with our software lifecycle management service relieving you of any licensing and renewal headaches.
Endpoint security and management go hand in hand. Lack of visibility, unpatched IT systems and apps, and misconfigured operating systems can make your environment much more vulnerable, less secure and less productive. Lumina provides real-time and continuous management of all your business’s endpoints inside and outside the perimeter, plus extensive deployment, asset management and patch management.

Richard and his team are a real inspiration to anyone who meets them and I have watched Lumina’s growth over the last few years with interest and admiration. Richard has been an amazing supporter of the Hospice of St Francis, being a Gold member of the Corporate Partner Network for almost two years. He takes an active interest in the community and is passionate about his company and his town: nothing is too much trouble, he is always willing to help, to give up his time and to provide business advice when asked. Lumina is an inspiration to any company wanting to set up business in Hertfordshire.

We worked with Lumina on a GDPR Audit. Richard was knowledgeable and professional throughout, and did the best he could to bring a dry topic to life through lots of real life examples and analogies. We were so impressed with the service Lumina provided and the value we got from partnering with them on this project – we couldn’t recommend them enough.
