Modern endpoint protection - Why antivirus just won’t cut it these days
04 January 2017
According to SentinelOne, leading endpoint protection vendor, in 2015 Enterprises collectively faced over 3 billion cyber attacks. If this volume alone isn’t enough to make you question how secure your endpoint protection infrastructure is, then perhaps the 317 million newly discovered variants of malware will?
Such variants of malware are not only growing in size but more alarmingly in sophistication. When you consider the sheer level of diversity and complexity in today’s cyber attacks, it’s no wonder it’s increasingly difficult to detect them all - no matter how responsive your business may be.
In order to conquer today's sophisticated cyber attacks, businesses need to take a fundamentally different approach; anti-virus just won’t cut it anymore. This is because advanced malware is now capable of by-passing AV-based protection almost as quickly as it takes to update the latest threats detected. In addition, there is an extremely high level of vulnerability in the gap between detection and response. So, even if an attack is successfully identified, a lack of integrated response tools will force manual attempts to neutralise it. In the meantime, that attack can very quickly multiply to other areas of your infrastructure. Are you really willing to take this risk?
At Prodec Networks we understand how challenging it can be for businesses to find better ways to strengthen its endpoint protection infrastructure. So, in an effort to help businesses tackle this common challenge head on, our experts at Prodec Networks have identified that the key to effective endpoint protection resides in the ability to dynamically analyse and predict any threat’s behaviour - and respond intelligently at machine speed.
