The security landscape changed dramatically with the maturation of crypto-ransomware in 2014. Not only did this new type of malware bring about a more lucrative business model for attackers, it also spurred the adoption of many so-called ‘next-gen’ endpoint security techniques. While these techniques bring impressive new capabilities to the fight against malware, there is still no one ‘silver bullet’ that can stop every threat — meaning a blend of advanced techniques is required to achieve maximum protection.
This white paper takes a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of many of today’s threat-protection techniques, and outlines why organizations should employ a multi-layered, defense-in-depth approach to security. That approach is embodied in Trend Micro™ XGen™ endpoint security, which combines cross-generational threat protection with global threat intelligence to defend against and adapt to the latest threats.
