Traditional antivirus (AV) is no longer up to the challenge posed by modern attackers. Signature and heuristic-based antivirus is ineffective against the types of attacks that organizations experience today, which increasingly rely on malware-less techniques that are invisible to AV.
“The problem is so bad that almost half of organizations have been affected by ransomware in the past 12 months.”
Modern attackers generate malware faster than traditional AV stops it. Furthermore, they are mastering techniques that don’t even require malware. Your endpoint security solution should protect against all attacks, not just malware-based threats.
To protect your organization against today’s threats, you need an endpoint-security solution that goes beyond malware, incorporating next-generation features that target the tools, techniques, tactics, and procedures used every day by both mass scale opportunistic attackers and targeted advanced threats.
The checklist given will help you assess the capabilities of your current antivirus solution and will provide the requirements needed to shift to a next-generation antivirus (NGAV) approach.
This Whitepaper will help you to understand the requirement needed to shift to a next-generation antivirus (NGAV) approach and why it matters?
