We all know how dynamic the cyber security landscape is. Attackers keep inventing new cyber threats to cut through cyber security. And on the other hand, cyber security experts innovate proactive and reactive ways to stay a point ahead of the points table.
Nevertheless, if cyber threats keep evolving, so should your measures to keep your IT environment safe. Using a conventional antivirus might not prove as helpful anymore, especially considering the level to which threats have reached. In situations like these, moving to AI/ML-driven cloud-based antivirus and EDR can help. CMS IT Services, one of the leading firms for cyber security consulting in Bangalore explores how.
What is an AI-ML-Powered Cloud-Based Antivirus?
Cyber threats aren’t what they used to be a decade ago. They’ve evolved a lot and have become much more sophisticated. Often, you don’t even recognize a particular instance is a cyberattack until it is too close or penetrates significantly deep into your system.
It isn’t that traditional antiviruses haven’t evolved over the years. But they potentially fall short of protecting the system from newly emerged cyber threats. It is because they respond only to known and historical threats. In addition, geographical factors are making it even more difficult for companies to track attackers.
Adopting and migrating to AI-ML-driven antivirus can help. These antiviruses can manage massive datasets, create threat models, and project potential attacks. Additionally, with their AI-ML prowess and capabilities, these antiviruses can detect a threat before it hits the ground. AI also proves useful in combating phishing emails and scams, which have been on a continual rise ever since they first surfaced.
Now, along with AI-ML, why should you have a cloud-based antivirus? Cloud-based antiviruses have unique benefits that encourage companies to migrate to them. Some of the most significant ones include the following.
- Tackling various online threats with minimal to no impact on the system
- Providing proactive functioning, eliminating latency between the time a particular security breach is discovered and when the system avails the protection
- Central management of resources
- Connecting each instance of antivirus to the central server in the cloud
- Real-time and automatic scanning and virus signature updates
- Remote and internet-enabled access to antivirus software
What is Endpoint Detection and Response?
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is an endpoint security solution that constantly monitors end-user devices to identify and respond to threats like malware and ransomware. EDR records activities and events taking place on all endpoints. It provides security teams with the visibility to discover otherwise invisible incidents. Additionally, EDR offers advanced threat detection, threat hunting, investigation alert triage, suspicious activity validation, malicious activity detection, containment, etc.
Some key EDR functions (which you may also call benefits) and which we, as experts in cyber security consulting in Bangalore, consider important in making the decision to migrate to EDR.
- Seamless integration with threat intelligence
- Auto-discovering stealthy attackers
- Get real-time and historical visibility
- Managed threat hunting to enable proactive defense
- Quick and decisive remediation
- Accelerated investigations
