Endpoint Security: Computers & Mobile Devices
Defining an Endpoint:
An "endpoint device" is an Internet-capable computer hardware device connected to a network: it's the end of the line for a network connection, a device that a user can interact with directly. The term can refer to desktop or laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, printers, and other specialized hardware such as internet-capable medical or scientific equipment and other devices.
