Many experts are of the opinion that antivirus isn’t the only method to safeguard against cyber-attacks and hacking. You should consider adding an endpoint detection response (EDR) which integrates with your antivirus, to provide a layer of protection to cybersecurity.
EDR solutions such as Cortex XDR or CrowdStrike help organizations create a unified digital perimeter defense, with centralized visibility. They also provide quick response to malware attacks and other threats. EDR rather than EPP which is focused on preventing attacks offers greater visibility of all activity on your networks.
EDR solutions use advanced detection methods like behavioral analysis and machine learning. This differs from antivirus programs that rely on signatures or other elements to detect viruses. This allows them to better recognize the malware and how it could impact your business. They can also detect new kinds of malware that other antivirus programs might not detect.

However, he wasn’t yet aware of the message that has become evident to many who work in the industry: It’s no longer necessary for computers to pay for antivirus protection.
