Best Practices for Special-Purpose System Security
Endpoints play a critical role in connecting people to applications, data, networks and other people. Some endpoints, known as special-purpose systems, are programmed to perform a specific function (ATMs, airport kiosks, ticket vending machines, etc.)
Although functional and convenient, these special-purpose systems present significant security challenges due to 3 common vulnerability areas:
- Weak security
- Legacy software
Read this article to learn more about the security challenges of these special-purpose systems and discover how to protect these vulnerable endpoints.
