AppGuard is the essential cyber stack layer that blocks malware missed or detected too late by AV, EDR, XDR, and other layers


You see daily reports in trade publications of malware attacks.

Of course, you would not see these headlines if most AV, EDR, or XDR tools defending enterprises were detecting malware before harm occurs.

This has forced enterprises to keep adding ever more cyber tools, more personnel. The outcome has been more wasted resources, more chaos, more cost.

Adding AppGuard Helps

Adding AppGuard can block what other defenses miss because its approach is entirely different. AppGuard stops attacks by blocking the actions malware must do to succeed, instead of trying to recognize the malware itself.

AppGuard is the essential layer in any security-conscious company’s defenses; it is not necessarily a replacement for AV, EDR, or XDR, in fact AppGuard makes them (and other cyber stack layers) even better. If you need to reduce your malware risks and cyber chaos, then learn more about how AppGuard can help.

How adding AppGuard improves enterprise cyber defenses


Fewer malware incidents

Not none, but MANY fewer, and more than enough to matter. Adding an ‘unlike’ risk mitigator like AppGuard is a paradigm shift in your defenses.


Less Cyber Noise & Chaos

Fewer malware incidents means fewer alerts, fewer false positives, fewer investigations, less detection tuning, and less telemetry to analyze.


Lighter Cyber Operations

Less cyber noise, fewer incident responses and remediations, shrinks workloads and allows greater focus.

"The number of alerts we receive from our detection tools that we previously needed to investigate has dramatically reduced, saving important IT management time."

How AppGuard Differs from other Endpoint Protection


Stops without Detecting

Prevents attacks by stopping malware doing what it wants to, as opposed to AV, EDR, and XDR trying to tell bad from good among nearly infinite malware patterns.


Successful War Record

No protection tools are 100%. Yet, AppGuard successfully defeated most major headlined malware since 2020. Imagine the peace of mind and cost saving potential if it had been in your cyber stack since then.


Containment and Isolation

Suppresses, contains, and isolates different actions at different parts of hosts to block malware techniques, yet allows legitimate work to continue.

Ways that AppGuard Protection Reduces Cyber Chaos


Reduced Alerts Fatigue

Stops attacks before other tools trigger detection alerts that need to be investigated, and before malware must be cleaned up, freeing scarce resources.


No Dependency on Patches

Missing patches or zero-day exploits hijack YOUR applications to do YOU harm, but AppGuard’s kernel-level containment does not let them. You can then avoid “crisis mode” when such events occur.


Keeps Servers Running

Instead of quarantining or terminating servers, isolation does not allow unauthorized processes to touch critical folders/objects.


No Performance Impact

One fifth the footprint of Defender and no statistical guesses of bad vs good to constantly investigate. AppGuard protects while allowing "Business as Usual".


Some Up-front Tuning

Default policies can disrupt workflows. Very little tuning eliminates them for good, and blocks even more TTPs.


Enhances Cyber Stack

Coexists with all. Stopping ‘undetected’ attacks at endpoints alleviates other layers, allows them to better focus, lowers their costs.

Using an expert MSSP enables your cyber program to get more done with the staff you have

You can choose to deploy AppGuard using your own MSSP or alternatively you can use one of our expert-trained and accredited MSSPs. If you’d like to run AppGuard in-house, speak to your reseller about our training programs.

How AppGuard Defeats Malware Without “Detecting” it

Most tools intending to stop malware attacks can only do so if and when the malware is recognized. AppGuard defeats malware by instead blocking those actions malware must do to achieve its goals. This is accomplished by combining three kernel-level enforced controls: launch, containment, and isolation. More can be read about this lightweight, easy to operate approach here.
