Advanced Endpoint Protection: Real Zero-day Prevention
As the frequency of APT incidents increases, security threats created by vulnerabilities to the endpoints are becoming an all-too-familiar scenario. Current day solutions are unable to provide the desired level of protection, focusing their efforts on detection and remediation, instead of prevention.
The challenge enterprises face today is how to prevent Zero-Day attacks exploiting software vulnerabilities. For the known attacks, hackers take the time to learn and reverse engineer the system. As for the unknown, you can’t identify something you don’t know about.
Attacks based on new exploits or mutations of known exploits with unknown behaviors, continue to cause billions of dollars in damages to thousands of organizations with unpatched computers each year.
Changing the game
Palo Alto Networks Advanced Endpoint Protection is a complete paradigm shift from identification to pure prevention. Our solution requires no definitions updates, protects unpatched systems, requires no hardware, is compatible with all physical or virtual Windows platforms including terminals, VDI, VMs and embedded systems, protects all processes including 3rd party, and most importantly, it doesn’t need prior knowledge of an attack in order to prevent it.
Sounds too good to be true, but it is.
Despite numerous enemies and endless vectors of attack, they all share one thing in common – They MUST use the same techniques to execute their attack. By focusing our solution on these techniques and building traps to mitigate them, the attacker’s path for exploitation becomes known, even when the attack isn’t, allowing us to prevent the attack before any malicious activity is ever executed.
