Uncover the riskiest 1% of threats you’ve been missing. In hours. Not days or months. Nearly all endpoint security solutions claim to block 99% of malware. But what about the 1% of threats they miss? The most dangerous 1% of threats will wreak havoc on your network. If you rely solely on traditional point-in-time technologies, such as antivirus, those threats can go undetected for 200 days on average. For months on end, they can be creeping in and moving laterally across your network causing damage through stealthy malware campaigns without you even knowing it—until it’s too late.

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.

Traditional antivirus (AV) is not the solution to preventing security breaches on the endpoint – it is the problem. AV is no longer effective at stopping today’s cyberthreats. Although AV satisfies many regulatory, governance and compliance requirements, it saddles organizations with hidden costs while providing little to no real security value.

A new white paper from Panda Security discusses the new breed of silent online threats that can bypass traditional antivirus programs and penetrate even the most highly 'protected' networks.  Additionally, the sheer volume of malware has overwhelmed the antivirus industry as a whole. Collective Intelligence is a new global security model specifically designed to combat the next evolution of malicious code.

Today’s targeted malware attacks are infecting unsuspecting businesses at astonishing rates, rendering traditional antivirus solutions ineffective. Reported and known viruses are becoming less important compared to the increase in unknown threats and attacks.

Anti-virus does much more than reactively detect known viruses; it proactively scans for unknown ones too. So, how do scanners really work? The aim of this paper is to reduce some of the confusion around the workings of AV technology, and to clarify what is realistic to expect from AV protection, particularly heuristic analysis.

This whitepaper discusses a major new threat vector — “phishing 2.0.” While many IT professionals have become less concerned with phishing as it seems these attacks only fool naive consumers, a new generation of sophisticated phishing attacks now target businesses. These phish evade traditional antivirus and antiphishing products. Using targeted information — often gathered from social media sites — they fool even security-savvy employees into divulging sensitive information or visiting websites that infect machines with dangerous malware. Learn more about: • Uncovering phishing emails and phishing websites in real time • Limiting the amount of personal information employees expose on social media sites • Leveraging the world’s largest cloud-based threat network

This white paper describes how new threats have stretched the capabilities of “fat client” security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses. It discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and large signature downloads with: • Cloud/client architecture • Journaling and rollback • Behavioral recognition of malware These improve performance and effectively address the new threat environment, which includes protecting against zero day threats.

This document outlines three core reasons why traditional AV no longer offers organizations any meaningful security value. Looking beyond the tangible staffing, operational, and licensing and support costs, the document highlights some of the hidden costs associated with operating an antivirus system that may be intangible, difficult to quantify, or unquestioned due to precedence.

VolitionRx Limited is a multi-national company which develops new ways to detect cancer. Their ideal product needed to be reliable, efficient, and easily manageable for their modestly-sized IT department. Additionally, the solution had to be readily deployable to their operations in four separate countries. According to Daniel Halter, Group IT Manager at Volition, traditional antivirus vendors were “offering the same old solution only slightly jazzier. The model they were offering, although new, was and is the same thing that has been around for a while.” Daniel also stated that Volition had little time to determine which vendors are “selling the truth and which ones are selling the dreams.” Seeking an ideal match, Daniel reached out to Khipu Networks for their security recommendation. Khipu Networks suggested CylancePROTECT®, Cylance’s artificial intelligence endpoint security product. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

Traditional antivirus (AV) just doesn’t cut it anymore. From ransomware that holds intellectual property hostage to sophisticated malware-less attacks that exploit PowerShell, scripting, and memory, endpoints are facing more security risk than ever before. As a result, companies have set their sights on the next generation of lightweight AV solutions.

Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s
