Businesses have been trusting security vendors to protect their endpoints for years, but those vendors can’t keep up with the speed of the evolving threat landscape. They are failing in their promise to protect their customers, and these failures have opened the door for Next-Generation Anti-Virus solutions. Desperate for relief, businesses are adding, or even replacing, their traditional AV with these NGAV solutions. And while the NGAV vendors have promised unbelievable levels of effectiveness, endpoints continue to get infected.
Given today’s threat landscape, combined with so many security options available today, it can be daunting when selecting new or alternative technologies to protect your business. Your security team has unique challenges; therefore, you should be asking your next security vendor how they will meet your requirements—both for today, and the future.
