Antivirus Isn’t Enough- Hunt for Vulnerabilities Instead


The world has changed dramatically over the last 10 years, and technology is at the forefront of that evolution. In the recent past, businesses were concerned primarily with their physical security: locking their doors, setting the alarm, making sure they have video surveillance, etc. But now, companies are just as, or more, concerned with their digital security. Every day businesses of all sizes are experiencing hacks, data breaches, and Ransomware attacks. The cyberworld isn’t safe anymore. Hackers are finding any way possible to get into your network. That’s why it’s important that you have defenses in place to protect your computers and the confidential data they contain.

To fully protect your business, you need to take a “stacked” approach to cybersecurity. What we mean here is that you need several types of security solutions. To start, your business must have a business-grade antivirus software, an enterprise firewall, anti-spyware, and so on. These tools can help you find and remove viruses and infections from your computers. Unfortunately, that’s still not enough. Even top of the line antivirus and antispyware programs don’t have the breadth to prevent or identify all cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Many of these tools are very good at finding and removing a virus, or malware infection, but they aren’t robust enough to identify the root cause of the vulnerability.

The sad truth is that most of the time you aren’t aware of a gap in your security until it’s too late. To find the root of a vulnerability, you need an Advanced threat detection tool like Huntress. Huntress scans your computer and network for “footholds” that hackers use to gain access. It inspects shady email attachments, unpatched vulnerabilities, malicious website content, corrupted USB drives, and a whole lot more.

By having a stacked approach to your cybersecurity, you can stay ahead of the hackers. If you’re concerned about your security protections, join our webinar on Wednesday, February 26th, 2020.
