The complexity of cybersecurity threats is continually increasing beyond the capabilities of what antivirus solutions can detect. For instance, a user might visit a website and end up downloading malicious software. Antivirus software isn’t sophisticated enough to intervene in this situation before damage is done. It’s also not going to detect social engineering efforts, like phishing schemes.
The biggest problem is that antivirus software cannot detect anomalies on your company network that are often the first signs of a threat, like users logging in from a new IP or device or a device accessing an area of the network outside of the associated user’s boundary. Addressing these types of threats requires more than just installing software on employee devices. This is exactly why you need a managed service provider (MSP).
