If you use the signature-based antivirus programs for malware detection, this implies that you are choosing to stay a step behind the attacker, and for the users who don’t use deep protection approaches, being relying on the endpoint protection can lead to the wrong way of detection.
This reaction against the conventional ways has resulted in different companies, both customers and business owners, to move towards the signature-less malware detection programs.
One of the most important things while looking at the implication of technology of the antivirus program is the architectural structure of the program. Knowing that how this technology serves the certain environment of your system and under which particular conditions it works, is quite necessary.
Most of the present malware detection programs are fixed to the cloud to restrict the management footmark in the bounds of business. This shows that all the back-end programming has been done in a cloud which doesn’t rely on the premises. Depending on the amount of risk you can endure personally, this may become a problem for you, or it may create an opportunity for increasing the handling of endpoints throughout the system.
It also shows that, regardless of what your endpoint is – maybe a coffee shop system, an enterprise network, or a home network – as long as it owns a smooth internet connection, it is under management – all in the absence of the enterprise holding anything in the DMZ to proxy back to the internet managing. It is important to mention that as most of the upcoming malware detection software use this kind of architectural plan.
It is quite amazing that a lot of vendors add the feature to make their product cloud-based completely, however it is not the only reason that these vendors are taken into consideration. It is due to the signature-less malware detection technique. While reviewing the vendors, it is highly important to find out how they are taking care of the defense.
As these products make their way to the market, many vendors said that they used signature fewer programs, but after going in depth of these products, you can find that they don’t offer an efficient endpoint detection or EDR responses, and don’t stop the attacks effectively. EDR works fine, but when you look at the endpoint detection program, they lack the ability to warn users and avoid attacks is a deal breaker.
