Cybercriminals plan their attacks to take advantage of standard antivirus software’s predictable behavior. Modern, high-quality malware is challenging to resist from day one. By continuously monitoring all system files, processes, applications, interfaces, and network activities, NGAV gets around this issue. To establish a baseline of expected behavior and identify malicious activity, it leverages analytics powered by AI and machine learning. NNGAV-protected systems naturally get more secure over time as the AI and machine learning algorithms learn more about user and system behavior, in contrast to traditional antivirus technologies that tend to become more vulnerable as attackers learn to circumvent them.

Ponemon Institute estimates that a single endpoint breach currently results in an average economic loss of $8.94 million. More than five out of ten enterprises claim that their endpoint security solutions are unable to identify sophisticated assaults; respondents believe that the average attack is missed by legacy AV products by 60 percent. The huge number of false positives and management complexity of traditional antivirus is also contribute to respondents’ growing dissatisfaction with it, in addition to what it doesn’t detect.

In order to predict and promptly stop known and undiscovered attacks, Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) combines artificial intelligence, behavioral detection, machine learning algorithms, and exploit mitigation. Because NGAV is cloud-based, the hassle of maintaining software, managing infrastructure, and updating signature databases is removed, and it can be deployed in hours as opposed to months.
