Traditional antivirus (AV) is not the solution to preventing security breaches on the endpoint – it is the problem. AV is no longer effective at stopping today’s cyberthreats. Although AV satisfies many regulatory, governance and compliance requirements, it saddles organizations with hidden costs while providing little to no real security value. Case in point, despite the fact that traditional AV solutions “protect” nearly every endpoint and server in the world, security breaches are still on the rise. Organizations that choose to replace their traditional antivirus with more advanced technologies should select a security product that provides superior security value, not just in terms of monetary costs, but also in terms of its security effectiveness.
