Microsoft provides a broad range of security protection and detection capabilities that protect endpoints from a wide spectrum of threats. The company’s anti-virus, Microsoft Defender, included free in every version of Windows, and Microsoft Defender for Endpoints, a full-blown Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), are widely deployed. But, even the best threat identification technologies (e.g. NGAV and EDR) cannot find and stop fast-striking, well obfuscated, or new malware, leaving a dangerous time gap.

AppGuard empowers MSSPs to provide better protection for customers with less effort and less stress. Using a ‘prevention without detection’ approach, AppGuard protects organizations from cyberattacks by disrupting malware activity from causing harm, without needing to identify malware. Instead, it protects against malware’s intended effects, regardless of the form malware takes, even as it evolves. With AppGuard in your arsenal, customers can do what they need to do, and malware will be prevented from doing what it wants to do.

Consumers and small businesses are targeted by attackers more than ever. Hackers are opportunistic. They realize small businesses and consumers often lack the tools and techniques to protect against harm, providing easy routes to bank accounts, customer data, patents, confidential health information, and more. Hackers easily bypass traditional antivirus solutions and realize small businesses cannot support complicated and expensive tools, and are likely to cave to hacker threats, particularly ransomware, since not paying ransom means shutting down the business.

While most cybersecurity weaknesses involve technology, cybersecurity is ultimately a people problem. The human element exposes an enterprise to risks, undermines the effectiveness of technology, yet it can also mitigate what technology cannot. Some cyber problems are best dealt with human solutions or at least consideration for the human condition.

We are providing ten pro tips for mitigating security gaps. This will help alleviate workloads and pressure from many layers of your cyber program.
