endpoint device

An endpoint device is an Internet-capable computer hardware device on a TCP/IP network. The term can refer to desktop computers, laptops, smart phones, tablets, thin clients, printers or other specialized hardware such POS terminals and smart meters.

Most experts recommend a policy-based approach to network security that requires endpoint devices to comply with specific criteria before they are granted access to network resources.

Does the end point term refers to devices only? Can we call any cloud service or API also an end point?
