Is Antivirus Enough?

Managed Endpoint

Detection and Response

The best way to manage today’s security threats

Security used to be so simple. You installed anti-virus (AV) solutions, trained employees not to click on unknown links, and kept software and websites up to date.

AV solutions have done a great job of keeping small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) safe for many years. However, the threat patterns are changing, and SMBs need a different type of protection to combat these increasingly sophisticated, severe attacks.

Here’s why: AV solutions rely on signatures to detect threats, but the latest threats don’t use signatures and can slip through and enter your company’s networks undetected.

Here are a few examples of some of the risks we’re
seeing in the marketplace now:

  • Weaponized documents that may seem like harmless PDF attachments in your emails but execute attacks once they enter your network.
  • Fileless threats that don’t require downloads, but execute from memory, making them difficult to identify.
  • Zero-day threats that find an unknown computer vulnerability and exploit it before software or hardware providers can issue updates.
  • And of course, continued ransomware attacks, which can disable IT networks as cyber-attackers demand huge ransoms to restore data and services.

82% of SMBs say they have experienced a cyber-attack that their AV systems didn’t catch.

“The ransomware attack was the last straw. It took days to restore our systems. We’ve upgraded our security system with Managed Endpoint Detection and Response to keep our business safe from these types of threats moving forward.”

Keep Your Business Safe from the Latest Threats

You want to keep your business, employees, and all your devices safe from cyberattacks. And we all know that mobile devices are often the weakest link of IT security, as workers use less caution on-the-go than they do in the office. Here’s why Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is the best choice now for your IT security and business continuity.
