What Makes Next-Gen Endpoint Protection Unique?

As the world of fraud, phishing, and ransomware takes over the headlines, it’s no wonder organizations are looking for new ways to combat these threats. Ransomware attacks in particular have become the new advanced persistent threat, having risen to the top of the list of concerns for organizations both large and small.

It’s also no secret that traditional endpoint protection technologies have not kept up with the challenges presented by these advanced threats; these legacy technologies are simply not able to handle attacks that find their way onto corporate endpoints and then work their way into and around the network.

This Dark Reading slide show provides a view into some of the critical attributes to look for in these new methods. While each method may be viewed and handled differently across the highlighted vendors, it’s important to recognize that the methods, in some form or another, are necessary if organizations are to have a fighting chance at combatting the targeted attacks their endpoints try to deal with on a daily basis.
