Is the reactiveness of your security system enough?
Christopher L., a software developer since 1997 who always strives to provide advice where possible, regularly publishes security content that solidifies knowledge and provides a coherent future reference point on security. His ability to explain complex elements in simple words makes his posts reach an important number of people everyday.
In one of his posts, Christopher L. argues that anti-virus/malware do not detect intrusions. In fact, relying on an anti-virus only is not going to let you know when a virus is entering your system. It is not meant to prevent attacks, it is only meant to investigate incidents after they have occurred. Let’s not forget that an anti-virus program is only a piece of software that inspects malicious files on a host device. Buying a security agent doesn’t protect you, as you do NOT get alerted when it matters. You must be armed with a network perimeter protection and not only endpoint or host protection.
Computer intruders typically use automated computer programs when they try to compromise a computer’s security. Attackers tend to spend significant time playing with your systems and information without you even realizing it. The very last attack of this process is the malware, and it is “usually not the intruder who breached you, but the malware is the buyer of your access information from the original intruder”, as explained by Christopher L. here.
Why not prevent instead of detect?
Predicting attacks before they occur is the first step to prevention, not necessarily of the attack itself, but of the damage the attack could wreak. If you know what is coming, you can put up defenses to either block the attack or to dissuade the adversary from carrying out the attack in the first place.
Bfore.Ai provides AI-predicted malicious domain lists before they become active – helping prevent future attacks before they even get acted. Our PreCrime™ technology guarantees blocking only truly malign vectors without limiting your infrastructure capabilities.
It is far more efficient to do that than to pick up the pieces after one has occurred. As Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
