Bret Lopeman, senior security engineer at Ada County discusses how his organization has adopted a prevention-oriented approach to network security with Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, including Traps.
Palo Alto Networks Traps replaces traditional antivirus with a multi-method prevention approach that secures endpoints against known and unknown malware and exploits before they can compromise a system. Traps prevents security breaches and successful ransomware attacks, in contrast to detection and response after critical assets have been compromised.
Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection:
• Prevents cyberbreaches and successful ransomware attacks by preemptively blocking known and unknown malware, exploits and zero-day threats.
• Protects and enables users to conduct their daily activities and use web-based technologies without concerns for known or unknown cyberthreats.
• Automates prevention by autonomously reprogramming itself using threat intelligence gained from WildFire.
Most organizations deploy a number of security products to protect their endpoints, including one or more traditional antivirus solutions. Nevertheless, cyber breaches continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication. Faced with the rapidly changing threat landscape, current endpoint security solutions and antivirus can no longer prevent security breaches on the endpoint. Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection replaces traditional antivirus with a unique combination of the most effective, purpose-built, malware and exploit prevention methods that pre-emptively block known and unknown threats from compromising a system.
