Endpoint Security

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

1. What is Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV)?

Next-generation antivirus (NGAV) is an advanced solution created to bridge the gap left by traditional antivirus. It’s a sophisticated level of endpoint security that goes beyond using just signatures and heuristics to deploy machine learning and big data to make calculations on the capabilities of a potentially malicious object.

2. What is the difference between EDR and traditional antivirus?

EDR solutions are specifically built to handle the high-volume, high-sophistication contemporary enterprise threat environment. This means being tailored for deployment in today’s SOC or enterprise in a way that gives security teams visibility of complex malware threats across all devices, allowing them remote zero-day detection and remediation capabilities

3. How does NGAV compare to the traditional antivirus?

Next-generation antivirus goes beyond signature-based detection and incorporates advanced endpoint protection technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics.

4. What makes an effective next-generation antivirus tool?

  • It should go beyond the use of signatures, heuristics and metadata like IP addresses and URLs
  • It should proactively and automatically block threats on the endpoint before they can install
  • Effective NGAV evolves with threats and attacks as they do
  • It provides protection even on offline devices
  •  NGAV solutions should be easily integrated into your existing infrastructure and should be easy to manage

5. How long does it take to be certified to ISO 27001?

This depends on a number of variables. It can be anywhere between 6 – 8 months for small organisations and between 12 – 18 months for larger enterprises.
