We live in a time when technology is undeniably synonymous with rapid change. Unfortunately, threats are evolving just as quickly! Legacy anti-virus, which many people still use today, simply isn’t up to the task of protecting against today’s threats. Even as this article is being written, we can guarantee someone is working on the next threat. It has become commonplace for hackers and cyber-criminals to test every new threat they create on legacy anti-virus to make certain their next heinous creation will slide in right around them.
In comes Next Generation Anti-Virus (NextGen AV) with Extended Detection and Response (XDR). While it may be called anti-virus, it is far more than that. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), when a threat occurs, it predicts what the threat or attacker will do next and then safeguards you from it. Layered on top of the AI is a group of real people constantly monitoring your endpoints 24/7. This is referred to as a Security Operation Center (SOC). Next-Gen AV has literally stormed onto the scene knocking off legacy AV at unprecedented speed. It has become the go-to for cybersecurity, so much so that almost every cyber insurance carrier will ask if you have it in place. The question is, do you?
You may be thinking “I have anti-virus, I’m good.” Honestly, who wants to think about security? It’s much easier to “believe” we are secure and move on with our day. The truth of the matter is when a breach occurs that feeling changes completely and we start to ask why, or what we could have done. The answer to that is NEXT GEN AV. People used to be fine with just deadbolts on their doors, which evolved into security systems, then cameras, and so on. The exact same thing is happening with technology!
Business owners are not fans of lawyers or insurance, but most have both. Cybersecurity is no longer optional, it’s a must, and the game is changing. At Fuse, we want to make certain you are advised on the newest security technology to protect your enterprise or small business. Next-Gen AV is just one of our many Fuse Security Plus offerings.
