Endpoints in K-12 schools and districts are not only central to learning and day-to-day operations, they are a path to sensitive data. Endpoint security is critical component of cybersecurity, since most cyberattacks start with compromising a single computer. Traditional antivirus solutions are invasive, cannot combat quickly changing threats, and don't communicate with other network elements to get the newest attack information. Palo Alto Networks advanced endpoint protection leverages machine learning and automation to improve efficiency and speed of cybersecurity while improving end user experiences for staff or students. Advanced endpoint protection works collaboratively with network sensors, leveraging the latest threat intelligence to block malware, exploits and malicious URLs seen in other parts of their network as well as by other Palo Networks customers. Since our advanced endpoint protection is a component of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, you can manage all your device, network, SaaS, cloud and web security from the same pane of glass, simplifying security operations.

Read this use case that includes a description of how a K-12 school district uses advanced endpoint protection on Windows® and Mac® workstations and Windows servers and:

  • Exceeds regulatory requirements for keeping students and their data safe
  • Automatically prevents successful exploits and cyberattacks, including ransomware, from impacting endpoints
  • Eliminates the need for a managed security services provider to manage multiple vendor interfaces for endpoints and network perimeter

Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection Technology Overview

Most organizations deploy a number of security products to protect their endpoints, including one or more traditional antivirus solutions. Nevertheless, cyber breaches continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication. Faced with the rapidly changing threat landscape, current endpoint security solutions and antivirus can no longer prevent security breaches on the endpoint. Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection replaces traditional antivirus with a unique combination of the most effective, purpose-built, malware and exploit prevention methods that pre-emptively block known and unknown threats from compromising a system.
