Get the Most Out of Your Antivirus Replacement Solution

While antivirus is a necessity in cyber protection, many experts acknowledge that it’s far from the only method to protect yourself from hacking and other cyber threats. To get the most out of your cybersecurity system you should consider including an endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution that works in conjunction with your antivirus to create a layered security plan.

EDR solutions such as Cortex XDR or CrowdStrike help organizations to create a seamless digital perimeter defense that is centralized in visibility. They can also react quickly to malware attacks and other security threats. As opposed to EPP, which focuses on preventing security breaches, EDR provides greater visibility into all activity on your network.

EDR solutions utilize advanced detection methods such as machine learning and behavioral analysis. This differs from antivirus programs that rely on signatures or other factors to detect viruses. This helps them better be aware of what malware is doing and how it can affect your business operations. They’re also able recognize new forms of malware that traditional antivirus programs might miss.

Josh Brunty spent more than 10 years working in cybersecurity, first as a digital-forensics analyst with the West Virginia State Police and then as a computer security instructor at Marshall University. He was still not able to grasp the message that’s become evident to many working in the field: It’s no longer necessary for computers to pay for antivirus security.
