Traditional anti-virus software is no longer a comprehensive solution for businesses. Malware now outpaces many anti-virus programs. The Dark Web and malicious actors can now spin up and sell complex attack kits, making them exceedingly common yet hard to catalog. Leading firms now recognize Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) platforms as a key component of their security operations. They offer greater protection and can act against malicious activity in real-time.
Advanced EDR Protections ActiveEDR feature can track and contextualize all activity on a device. Most importantly, it reduces dwell time, the delay between infection and detection. ActiveEDR does not rely on cloud connectivity like other more traditional antivirus programs to make a detection. The Advanced EDR agent uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to decide and draws on stories of what is happening on the endpoint. When it detects malicious activity, the platform can take direct action in real-time.
If an employee opens a tab and downloads a malicious file that could delete local backups and encrypt data on their disk (such as ransomware), ActiveEDR has detected the full “storyline”. Our Advanced EDR Protection will then mitigate all steps of this infection by detecting the download at run time, before encryption begins. It will then mitigate the rest of the damage all the way to the open tab in the browser. This works by giving each element of the “story” the same TrueContextID. Advanced EDR Protection provides rich contextualization to malicious activity, aiding in the investigative work for analysts and reducing alert fatigue.
Advanced EDR Protection defends against fileless malware, a growing concern for businesses. Fileless malware is a specific type of malware that utilizes legitimate programs to infect an endpoint. IT does not require files and leaves little footprint, making it particularly challenging to detect and remove. Traditional antivirus programs utilize virus definitions and are unable to detect these newer damaging threats.
Advanced EDR Protection delivers autonomous endpoint protection through a single agent that successfully prevents, detects and responds to attacks across all major vectors. Designed for extreme ease of use, the S1 platform saves customers time by applying AI to automatically eliminate threats in real time for both on premise and cloud environments and is the only solution to provide full visibility across networks directly from the endpoint.
When ransomware strikes our Advanced EDR Protection can roll back infected devices to their pre-infected state typically in minutes—not hours (Windows OS only). Let Maine PC Solutions help you avoid costly outages, data loss, and ransoms giving you peace of mind knowing that you can run your business—while facing down any threat.
