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
