Protect your employees and enterprise from harmful malware and cyberattacks with Cisco® Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints.
Did you know that your organization is under constant threat from an invisible menace? This menace is called malware. Malware can steal sensitive data, disrupt core computing functions, spy on computer activity, and engage in many more malicious activities that harm your company’s data and IT infrastructure.
Like most organizations, you probably have some defenses in place for such cyberattacks. But if your workforce has recently transitioned to working remotely due to the COVID-19 crisis, you may have some new vulnerabilities that have not been addressed. Endpoints like unsecured home computers and phones are common gateways for malware for instance. When employees unwittingly click on a fake link or download an application meant to transmit a virus, their device becomes infected. Then when they use that same device to access your network, the virus spreads.
If you’re looking for an easy solution to secure new endpoints before they compromise your organization’s cybersecurity, consider Cisco ® Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints. This cloud-managed security solution offers a comprehensive approach to detecting and stopping malware in its tracks.
What Is Cisco AMP for Endpoints?
Cisco AMP for Endpoints prevents cyberattacks against your enterprise by detecting, containing, and blocking viruses that try to enter your systems or network through endpoint devices. It includes cloud-delivered, cutting-edge antivirus software, an endpoint protection platform (EPP), and an endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution.
Because it is so multifaceted, Cisco AMP for Endpoints offers several benefits that make it ideal for protecting your enterprise from cyberattacks.
Proactive Malware Detection
They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The best way to prevent malware is to detect it at the first sign of trouble.
Cisco AMP for Endpoints doesn’t just sit and wait for a security breach. It uses machine learning to actively look for possible signs of a malware attack and then initiates security investigations based on behavioral indications of compromise (loCs). This allows it to head off cyberattacks at the outset.
Protection for Every Device and Network
Home computers and other devices are notorious for having outdated and insufficient malware protection. If that’s what your employees are using as they work from home, your endpoint security is only as strong as whatever antivirus your employees downloaded last year.
Cisco AMP for Endpoints offers complete protection for the devices your employees are using at home these days. The solution is compatible with all endpoints, such as:
- Mobile devices
There’s a reason terms like “virus” and “infected” are used when discussing cyberthreats. Malware is designed to spread. The only way to stop the infection is to contain it first before deleting it.
With a security platform such as Cisco AMP for Endpoints, you can see the chain of events and context of a malware attack, as well as understand its trajectory. Combined with the ability of AMP to target specific root causes, this allows you to contain the malware infection easily. It also allows you to break its chain of attack before it wreaks further havoc.
Analytics and Retrospective Security
Cisco AMP for Endpoints not only prevents malware attacks. It also provides constant monitoring of files and traffic for retrospective security and threat intelligence. Through advanced click isolation and behavioral detection, Cisco AMP for Endpoints prioritizes and collates your highest areas of compromise and risk.
By linking various forms of retrospection, Cisco AMP for Endpoints creates a threat grid and look for patterns of malicious behavior and identifies problematic endpoints or endpoint environments. With these tracking capabilities, you can view a history of processes, communications, and file activities to analyze past infections and look for future preventative measures.
Endpoints aren’t your only target for malware. While Cisco AMP for Endpoints offers a comprehensive security solution for employee devices, you still want deeper security checkpoints and protections for your network and systems as a whole.
For a seamless, big-picture security infrastructure, pair Cisco AMP for Endpoints with other security solutions like the Cisco AMP for Networks to further expand control over your organization’s cybersecurity. This ensures all your bases are covered, providing an unmatched level of protection.
If Cisco AMP for Endpoints sounds like the elements you’re missing in your organizations or current security measures, the easiest way to get them set up is through an MSP that partners with Cisco. An experienced MSP can help you choose the right security solutions for your unique needs and implement them quickly before your enterprise falls victim to harmful malware.
