“Antivirus is dead!” - we’ve heard talks like this for years. Some experts would point out that traditional signature-based products cannot detect zero-day attacks or sophisticated advanced threats. Others would even recommend getting rid of any 3rd party antimalware products because the one built into Windows is good enough. But can we really take these claims at face value? If the last few years have taught us anything, it would be that the cyberthreat landscape is constantly evolving, changing quickly and unpredictably. Even the largest companies that have invested heavily in various security tools were completely unprepared for the ransomware outbreak last year. Cryptojacking, CEO fraud, fileless malware – cybercriminals never cease to “innovate”…

It seems therefore that for most companies the focus has already shifted from preventing a malware attack towards detecting malicious activities and trying to contain them as quickly as possible – after the introduction of GDPR and similar compliance regulations, an undetected breach can not just hinder your operations but ruin your business financially. But does it mean that you need to augment your existing antivirus with a brand new EDR solution? And how do you plan to keep up with the latest cyberthreat developments if not with a threat intelligence solution? Finally, who’s going to operate all these tools and how much do they expect to be paid?
