Endpoint security with Traps

By now it is apparent that antivirus is reactive and the damage has already been done by the time anti-virus responds. Time to think about endpoint security instead of antivirus: prevention instead of responding!

Traditional Antivirus is falling short

Malware and ransomware such as WannCry and Petya are commonplace threats. And by now it is apparent that traditional anti-virus programs fall short in defending against these attacks.

Anti-virus only responds to the result of the malware and reacts when in reality the damage has already been done: in many cases business continuity has been threatened. Preventive endpoint protection is the answer to the current threats.

Prevention instead of detection

By shifting the focus from consequence to cause, endpoint security has taken a completely different – and safer – turn. The advanced endpoint protection solution from Palo Alto Networks called Traps stops the core techniques that a hacker uses for an infection and also stops unknown malware and malicious activities. This makes Traps successful where anti-virus fails.

Next-Generation Security Platform

Traps is part of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform. Traps integrates with WildFire, the threat intelligence cloud from Palo Alto Networks. And that ensures that also zero-day threats are identified. Something that traditional antivirus suppliers have a lot of difficulty doing.

Antivirus discovers only 37.5% of the unknown malware that it offered to WildFire. As a customer, you don’t necessarily need to have a Palo Alto Networks firewall in order to use Traps.

As an integral part of the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform, Traps always benefits from the platform and its capabilities.

What customers are saying about Traps

It is precisely in the field of healthcare that it is important to be able to protect legacy control systems and applications. Because of the monopoly position that many suppliers have, systems often cannot have the most recent software and operating systems.

Traps mitigates this frequently seen security risk so that offering optimal ICT in the healthcare sector is better secured.

After multiple infections from a zero-day CryptoLocker, the signature-based antivirus / anti-malware proved to be no longer sufficient. An advanced solution was needed for more than 300,000 new pieces of malware per day worldwide.

The implementation of Traps really helped us here. And it also gives us a good insight into the software used and newly launched executables in the workplace environment.
