Desk Top Antivirus will no longer protect you

Your Desk Top Antivirus will no longer protect you in today's environment

Your business needs a platform that delivers the defenses you need to prevent, detect, and undo—known and unknown—threats.

Traditional antivirus technology uses a long-embattled signature-based approach, which has failed to match
the pace of emerging malware and evasion techniques. Those demand a different approach to client protection.
Furthermore, with the proliferation of telecommuting, mobility and BYOD, there is a dire need to deliver consistent
protection for endpoints anywhere. Autonomous endpoint protection saves you time by using multiple AI engines, providing complete visibility into all activity, and even rolling back threats with a single agent. Its time to make a change. Put a Spider into your network and call Spider Networks today

Hackers have become smarter and try to evade static signature detection techniques by coding the virus in such a way so that it can change it's signature. Threat protection experts are now starting to use 'heuristic' techniques to identify viruses. For e.g. Imagine you are a burglar and are planning to break into a house. You try to gain as much information as much as possible about the house and its residents by using surveillance. Then you go shopping to pick up a tool that can be used to gain access to the house.  You reach the store and there is a surveillance officer on site looking for people who are purchasing those tools. The 'behavior' based antivirus works in the same way. It tries to identify the 'behavior' of a file. E.g. an mp3 file trying to modify a system file or something like that which is unacceptable under normal circumstances. This is now treated as 'dangerous behavior' and the antivirus classifies it under 'threat' category.

Antivirus normally just looks at signatures of known viruses that have already attacked systems and uses that to protect you system. Signatures can take 30 or more days to update so you are always behind the curve.

Today's choice should be continuous behavioral monitoring of the client that helps create a complete profile of file activity, application and process activity, and network activity.

This allows for protection against both file-based and fileless malware and delivers a 360-degree attack view with actionable intelligence relevant for investigations.
