Has it ever bothered you that an outsider can quickly access your company’s valuable information and digital assets with a simple click? And that dismissing such possibility can take everything you and your employees worked so hard to achieve can be taken away in a flash?
Although hackers continuously improve their ways, companies can use strong defenses to prevent being easy targets to these cybercriminals.
The evolution of the digital age has opened up a wide array of equipment and technology that can specifically cater to your organization’s safety needs. Antivirus, Firewalls, and solutions like Sangfor’s Cyber Command products are some of the best ways to protect your network. The tricky part is in knowing which of these options is the most suited for your group.
Antivirus and Net Detection Response are cyber tools that your company can significantly benefit from. The two are just a few of the many choices you can choose from to protect your business’s network. While they both aim to defend your systems and devices from threat, they vary significantly in certain aspects. To understand the two instruments in-depth, it is best to define their functions and differ clearly.
Let’s start with antivirus software. It is a set of specifically created programs to protect individual computers, devices, and networks. It does this by detecting and removing viruses found in the system and preventing any potential future entry.
Here are some of the threats antivirus software can detect and remove:
- Trojan horses
- Other hacking tactics
So how does antivirus software work to accomplish a device’s protection?
It begins by conducting regular ongoing scans of the computer in the background to detect any threat immediately. Though the scanning is an automatic process, the software also allows the user to perform manual scans of specific folders and locations of a network. These processes can be done at any time.
In detecting a virus, the program then goes to work to safely and successfully remove the threat. Its features include defense intelligence and an updated database of viruses and malware to keep up with the growing cybercrime technology to handle any danger it will encounter effectively.
Another viable option for cybersecurity on a much broader scale is Network Detection Response. Perfect for protecting the online information of large companies and organizations, NDR covers a whole system of networks and devices and protects them from potential threats.
For example, suppose you’re in a business that relies heavily on the internet and high-tech operations with a lot of valuable information on hand. In that case, you will need a security response that will give you full coverage and visibility of your cyber environment’s behavior and activity. Again, choosing NDR might be the best choice for you.
What are the responsibilities of Network Detection and Response?
Observation and Diagnosis
NDR acts as a monitoring system for your network and is constantly looking for threats and cyberattacks. It uses machine analytics to thoroughly analyze computers and their environment and detect hackers and malware. It utilizes highly advanced models, techniques, and procedures to find high-level threats.
Real-time analytics and data are provided to you and your team with NDR technology. It strives to provide relevant information that will aid the detection of threats, making the threat hunting process much easier for security teams. In addition, the analysis aspect of the program enhances the identification of malware and suspicious activity.
Finally, NDR is tasked to provide solutions for you and your teams’ security needs. This can be executed by inputting the automated threat response into your network to deal with the threat upon discovery to save time in your operations.
The highly advanced capabilities of the NDR system make it qualified to handle certain dangers without any human supervision or intervention, allowing for an efficient run at work.
