Even though organizations have deployed antivirus (AV) or next-generation antivirus (NGAV), they’re still being infected, suffering from breaches, getting ransomware and having unwanted downtime. While these solutions play a critical role in endpoint protection, it’s clear that businesses shouldn’t rely on them as their sole line of defense.
Why Do You Need Nyotron’s PARANOID?
In 2017, 118 million new malware samples were submitted according to AV-Test.org. Even at a 99.9% detection rate, this would leave 118,000 undetected threats, and this is just for known file-based malware. Multiple layers of protection, ideally including both negative and positive security approaches, are required to prevent breaches.
A RAND Corporation study finds that zero-day exploits and their underlying vulnerabilities have an average life expectancy of 6.9 years. This means that adversaries may be able to get into even the most secure organizations that keep their system patches up-to-date.
AV and NGAV attempt to hunt down “what is bad” (which is practically infinite) and allow everything else. To better protect your assets you need a complementary solution that focuses on a finite set of good behavior to proactively keep up with the ever-increasing volume of new, never-seen-before and fileless malware threats.
PARANOID Provides the Last Line of Defense
Nyotron’s PARANOID is the industry’s first OS-Centric Positive Security solution to strengthen your AV or NGAV protection. By mapping legitimate operating system behavior, PARANOID understands all the normative ways that may lead to damage and is completely agnostic to threats and attack vectors. When an attack attempts to delete, exfiltrate or encrypt files (among other things), PARANOID blocks them in real-time.
Defense in Depth
Rather than going through a painful rip and replace exercise, why not make what you already have work even better? PARANOID works seamlessly with AV and NGAV solutions so that they can both play a key role in your defense-in-depth strategy to achieve better threat detection and enhanced protection.
PARANOID AND ANTIVIRUS: BETTER TOGETHER
LOWER TCO, NO RIP & REPLACE
MORE ROBUST FEATURE SET
Here’s how PARANOID combined with AV or NGAV offers stronger protection to keep your laptops, desktops and servers safe from modern state-level attacks:
