Every day thousands of endpoints are compromised by cybercriminals, whether they are beginners or professionals. These cybercriminals use techniques to bypass antivirus software that historically only compared the signing of files to a database of known malicious files. This also means that any new strain of virus will strike hard before it is recognized, analyzed and then passed on to all antivirus vendors for blocking.
This is not the only weakness of these antiviruses; indeed to be able to compare the signature, a file must be deposited. However, many techniques exist to overcome this obstacle and perform malicious actions directly in memory, we speak here of "fileless" attacks, because they do not drop files, but execute code directly in memory.
Regardless of these advanced threats, antiviruses miss a crucial point in today's security environment - that of correlation. We study and analyze the attacks endpoint by endpoint without a global visibility. It is complex and time consuming to find the original path of infection.
Nevertheless, antiviruses, and in particular the "next gen" which do more than just compare files, still make it possible to block a large amount of malware. But this is no longer enough to be well protected.
Faced with ever-growing cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats, it becomes imperative to take the means to protect yourself and thus enhance your security posture.
As we are increasingly in a decentralized world, with remote work and cloud services, the network protection approach is still relevant, but remains very incomplete. Only endpoint-focused protection can adequately protect you.
