While cloud applications, remote working and bring your own device (BYOD) give organisations flexibility and efficiency, they can also serve as proliferation points for malware when they are not properly secured. This is why threat protection is more important than ever.
Personal devices lacking adequate endpoint protection may upload infected files to corporate SaaS applications, which then spread malware to other devices and connected applications. Unfortunately, thousands of new strands of zero-day malware are created every day. Traditional signature-based protection that relies upon reactive catalogues of threats cannot keep pace. Likewise, sandboxing files to diagnose them takes time and can fail to identify sophisticated malware that knows when it is being evaluated.
Organisations need advanced threat protection (ATP) that can identify any threat and meet a variety of use cases in our cloud-first, BYOD world.
As enterprises increase their dependency on cloud and remote working increases it seems perfectly logical that threat and risk will increase. Advanced threat protection (ATP) combines the best of traditional signature-based malware scanning with new ATP features to thwart known and unknown zero day attacks.
