BIOS Security – The Next Frontier for Endpoint Protection
This resource is published by Dell Technologies UK
Everyone is familiar with the process of booting up a computer. Many of us do this every day — pressing the power button, hearing the startup sound, and seeing the home screen appear. But even some tech professionals may not be aware of what’s happening under the surface of their computers. The BIOS is considered one of the most valuable parts of a computing system because of its crucial role to the overall operating system. Without the BIOS firmware chip, your computer wouldn’t even be able to load its home screen.
As security technologies become more sophisticated, cyber criminals find themselves with fewer places to hide and fewer methods to breach computer systems. As a result, attackers are hunting for new infiltration methods. As malicious invaders develop new ways to bypass security systems, organisations must adapt their security strategies to avoid vulnerabilities to hardware-level security breaches.
