First off, can anyone tell me what an "endpoint" is, and how it differs from a desktop/laptop. And how does a "workstation" differ from a desktop/laptop.

Secondly, what should.could be included in a workstation/endpoint "IT Audit", what key issues need to be reviewed at desktop/workstation/endpoint level, i.e key risks, management issues, operation issues etc. Corporately we have over 5000 "desktops" all currently XP latest SP, and several hundred "laptops" (again XP). Security is one issue we want to address but there must be many others.
