Enterprises face an uphill battle when it comes to protecting their endpoints and defending against the myriad of aggressive, targeted and sophisticated cyberattacks they face on a daily basis. Environments are diverse, dynamic and increasingly remote. With thousands and thousands of endpoints comprised of varying operating systems and purpose, and often handling sensitive company information completely off the corporate network, globally-defined solutions like legacy antivirus (AV) are more cumbersome than their worth.
In order to stop attacks in progress, shutting them down before they carry out their malicious ends, enterprises need to invest in emerging endpoint security platforms like next-generation antivirus (NGAV) that incorporate endpoint detection and response (EDR). However, they must ensure the platform is enterprise-ready, able to withstand the scalability demands and administrative requirements inherent to large organizations.
This whitepaper is intended to help enterprises assess their current capabilities and guide their upcoming discussions about NGAV + EDR solutions.
