ENDPOINT ANTIVIRUS

What To Look For In A Quality Antivirus Solution

Flexible Cloud-Based Managed

This means no on-premise hardware or software is needed and the console is always up to date. Up to 100,000 endpoints can be managed and through its hierarchical management architecture, you can easily control multiple sites and locations. Furthermore, local site administration access rights and permissions that are easily managed alongside central administration of all sites.

 

Visible Efficacy

Our malware prevention technology reports on its own efficacy at detecting infections and stopping malware. Dwell time reporting gives you visibility into any infection on any endpoint within your network, showing you when the infection began and how long it has taken out solution to stop that threat. Another factor contributing to the efficacy of an antivirus solution is its continuous infection monitoring, journaling and auto-remediation. If it cannot immediately categorize new or changed files and processes as ‘known’ good or ‘known’ bad, then the agent begins monitoring and journaling all events. If an observed process is categorized as malicious, then any system changes are reversed and the endpoint is auto-remediated to its last “known good” state. This extra layer ensures minimal false positives. If administrators wish to reclassify an application, they can easily do so via the cloud-based console.

 

Predictability

Leveraging big data analytics and threat intelligence from our users and technology partners worldwide, our solution identifies threats as they occur. The threat database’s big data architecture continuously processes, analyzes, correlates and contextualizes vast amounts of disparate information while also applying a patented, fourth-generation machine learning and malicious code identification system to create predictive behavioral determinations on malware instantly – with incredibly high accuracy. Big data processing allows the endpoint software to uncover malware as it attempts to infect an individual user’s endpoint, while simultaneously protecting all other endpoints against the same attacks. This collective approach to threat intelligence creates a massive real-time malware detection net that has intimate knowledge of more than 300 million executables, including their runtime behavioral characteristics and interactions. This, coupled with another 200+ terabytes of threat data, ensures that our customers are always protected from both existing and new threats.
