Cisco: Replace your AV with Next Generation Endpoint Security
If you’ve been to a security conference in the last year you’ve probably seen more than 20 different vendors all talking about endpoint security. Some might be talking about next generation anti-virus, endpoint detection and response, and even the much lauded machine learning. How do you cut through the clutter and noise to find what you are looking for?
Next generation endpoint security (NGES) is the convergence of multiple technologies. When I talk to customers about what’s missing in their AV, they say it doesn’t do a good job of showing anything after the fact, so they picked up an endpoint detection and response (EDR) tool. Now they have the insight they need, but have an additional technology they need to learn to use, another console to use that doesn’t tie in with their existing infrastructure, and another vendor to manage. NGES is designed to provide protection, detection, and response capabilities in an integrated solution. We leverage the cloud to perform all the heavy analytics so it doesn’t affect system performance.
Can we agree on why anti-virus is no longer effective?
