Traditional anti-virus (AV) scans files against a list of known signatures for viruses, trojans, worms and more, that are together termed malware. Anti-virus programs might also offer real-time scanning of your operating system. However, they don’t offer advanced security features needed by businesses. That’s where endpoint protection comes in.
Modern endpoint protection solutions combine traditional anti-virus capabilities with advanced security features that also protect against network-based attacks, data theft, phishing (and more), whilst also playing an integral role in SIEM and MDR services.
