We are often asked this leading question: “which endpoint security solution will offer 100% prevention and protection from malware?” The simple answer is none. Even the best endpoint security (which we pride ourselves on innovating and striving towards) will only be 100% effective most of the time.
For instance, real-time anti-phishing to stop email links to phishing sites, web browser protection to stop browser threats, and web reputation to block risky sites that might only occasionally be unsafe. Other changes can be made to the computer and environment to secure things further.
Cybercriminals are in the business of finding ways around endpoint security protection and their methods of attack will evolve in order to succeed. Each day, different malware campaigns create new variants of an infection. It is then repackaged or delivered in a way to remain undetectable by antivirus.
