Andy Norton, Director of Threat Intelligence at Lastline:
“Endpoint security and anti-virus solutions, are like gun laws, they should change, but they won’t. There are simply too many conflicts of interest on a production system, there will always be a trade off between productivity and security at the endpoint.
“To diligently counter intrusions, organisations need to embrace adversary resistant AI analytics, to automate prevention and response countermeasures based on a coalesced array of signature, behavioural and anomaly detection technologies.”
