Having the right cybersecurity technology is just a part of doing business in today’s world. Security solutions like antivirus software accounted for $23 billion in annual revenue last year – it’s likely that you contributed to that in some small way.
But are you sure antivirus software is enough to keep your organization secure? Or do modern threats require more advanced protection?
Check out our latest Coffee Break With Fuelled Video to find out:
Antivirus software is used in conjunction with other security technology to provide defense against malware, adware, and spyware. Each of these cybercriminal tactics has the potential to do immense damage to internal processes and a company’s reputation. The job of antivirus software is to spot, block, and isolate intrusive, malicious applications so they can’t do damage to your data and legitimate software.
Antivirus is installed to protect at the user level, known as endpoint protection. It is designed to detect and block a virus or malware from taking root on a user’s computer, or worse, accessing a network to which the user is connected.
On the other hand, Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is a cyber technology that continually monitors and responds to mitigate cyber threats.
Standard, free trial, consumer-grade cybersecurity solutions won’t cut it anymore. Not when it comes up against the types of malware that cybercriminals are using today.
If you want to stay safe, you need to invest in something more advanced. If you’re unsure of where to begin with EDR, don’t worry, you don’t have to handle it alone.
Fuelled Networks will help you assess your security needs, consider your IT budget, and develop a robust cybersecurity defense including EDR.
