Attacks from malicious malware are on the rise and they’re becoming sophisticated each new day. One estimate found 1 million new malware threats appearing every day and the numbers are accelerating at an unprecedented speed.
Ransomware is, particularly, on the rise. It is a type of malware that hijacks the control of critical systems and then the hackers ask for ransom to put you back in control of your systems. No organization is immune from malware. A targeted system attack can happen anytime, and if your systems are unprotected, they can be easily breached. And when it happens, the repercussions can be huge and costly.
Luckily, there are reliable ways to prevent malware attacks. The best way to keep your organization safe from malware is by using the best remediation and protection practices in a single, advanced, and powerful solution. The solution providers must have the expertise to detect and block malicious websites, provide you defense against ransomware, and protect your systems from unauthorized access and exploitations.
Here’s what a reliable anti-malware solution will do for you:
- Block zero-hour malware and ransomware by preventing access to malicious IP addresses
- Decrease the risk of system data loss that the outdated services often miss
- Detect and remove all traces of malware from every system
- Provide you a user-friendly management console feature that you can easily configure and implement policies on the basis of user groups
- Provide you a scalable malware protection solution that can grow along with your organization
- Clean malware and adware from Mac endpoints and Mac OS
- Provide you reliable Mac system security management solutions
For a system security solution to be called “dependable,” it must have a host intrusion prevention system (HIPS). The host intrusion prevention uses third-party software to detect and prevent suspicious activities on endpoint devices and systems.
When an abnormal activity or event is detected, the HIPS will send an alarm to your cybersecurity personnel, log the suspicious activity, reset the connection, drop the malicious packet, and stop more traffic from the malicious IP address. Furthermore, the system will automatically send the logs of suspicious events and portions of the malicious code to your cybersecurity experts for investigation and action.
Most organizations use HIPS that rely only on identified attack patterns to detect suspicious activities. While it is effective, it cannot protect your systems and devices against zero-day attacks or unknown attack patterns. This is where a robust system service makes a difference. A trusted and modern HIPS continuously monitors your systems for abnormalities, such as aberrations and changes in ports, bandwidths, and protocols.
For example, if a certain activity goes out of the red line – like a distant application repeatedly trying to access a closed port – the HIPS will come into action because there has been an indication of malicious activity.
You should get an additional layer of protection by using stateful inspection to analyze the protocols in packets moving on your network. With this solution, your HIPS will detect deviances from the standard courses of protocol content. It can flag a likely attempt at system breach when it sees a surprising change.
