Safeguard endpoints with next-gen antivirus

To stay ahead of fast-moving threats, you need AI-powered endpoint security that's continuously learning

Legacy antivirus burdens local systems and simply can’t outpace advanced threats. Relying on signatures to identify attacks, outdated antivirus isn’t equipped to block sophisticated new adversaries.

No longer relying solely on malware, adversary strategies have evolved to include a broad set of automated, targeted and sophisticated attacks that can bypass traditional endpoint protection.

WastedLocker, Samsa and other ransomware use targeted attack techniques to rapidly infect hosts. To stop ransomware, you need to block every step of an attack, including hard-to-detect lateral movement, and quickly restore compromised hosts if needed.
