The nature, intensity, and frequency of cyber threats have multiplied. Legacy anti-virus solutions suffer from lack of visibility into critical control points forcing manual searches through large and disparate data sources lacking context and correlation. This builds alert fatigue from poor signal to noise ratio and creates immense difficulty in containing the attack quickly before it disrupts business-critical processes. Moreover, legacy antivirus solutions adversely impact productivity and increase operating costs. Cybersecurity point tools don’t connect the dots across the entire technology stack.
CMS IT Services, one of India’s leading CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) and cybersecurity consulting and solution firms, discusses why enterprises should switch to Advanced Next-generation Endpoint Security as a Service. This solution unifies and extends detection and response capability across multiple security layers, providing security teams with centralized end-to-end enterprise visibility, powerful analytics, automated response across the complete technology stack.
Bundled with integration and operations, it integrates advanced endpoint protection, Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and threat hunting solution that delivers real-time visibility with contextualized, correlated insights accelerating triaging and root cause analysis. The solution enables proactive hunting capabilities to uncover stealthy, sophisticated threats lurking in the environment and lightens the SOC burden with automated threat resolution, dramatically reducing the mean time to remediate (MTTR) the incident.
3 Reasons to Replace Your Legacy AV
Migrate to a comprehensive endpoint security solution backed by our world-class customer service to deal with the evolving cyber threats. These three primary reasons make it more evident that companies should upgrade to current cyber and data security solutions on a war-footing basis.
- Prepare for Tomorrow’s Endpoint Security Demands
Today’s endpoint security need is to go beyond outdated technology that relies heavily on DAT file signatures and cloud lookups, relieve the organization of heavy agent footprints that drain endpoint performance and makes them crawl, gain better detection and correlation when attacks take place and move past limited, reimaging-based remediation and rollback. . A next-gen antivirus system thus proves an exigent need.
- Quicker Threat Detection & Lightning-Fast Responses
Legacy AVs aren’t suitable for evolving threats like fileless and polymorphic malware. Attackers have become smarter and stealthier than ever. Traditional Endpoint security solutions cannot detect them until they make a move and when they first enter the system disguised as benign files. But modern endpoint solutions blend techniques that constantly monitor the activity. They are much quicker and more accurate at threat detection, as they can detect malicious activities and limit them in their tracks. Once entered, an attack can proliferate like fire across the system. In situations like these, while containing and remediating an attack, every second counts. While investing in incident scoping, one of the most common challenges incident responders face is the ability to gather data. Conventional AVs offer limited visibility into file trajectories. But their modern counterparts provide a granular view of every threat activity.
Quicker responses mitigate risk and the potential of data exposure, thus helping companies save millions! It is possible with legacy systems.
- Lift the Burden of Maintenance & Management
Don’t waste time configuring legacy security solution’s various components to get started. Eliminate tedious error-prone operations of SQL servers & DXL brokers for “management”. Forget the hassle of extension installation and version alignment requirements for the latest capabilities. Stop putting your disaster recovery plans to the test in anticipation of agent upgrades and connectors. Stop being forced to manually manage and investigate threats to your security estate. Leave performance pains behind.
Modern endpoint security solutions achieve greater visibility of dynamic attack surfaces, including endpoints, cloud workloads, containers, identity, and mobile & network-connected devices, enrich investigations with cross-platform correlation and context and deploy immediate, automated responses to known and unknown threats. No wonder, they are an integral part of our managed security services.
