Human expertise filling endpoint security holes that defunct antivirus tools no longer can

Endpoint traffic has to be under control to sustain the security defense mechanism in today’s digital world. Though there are a wide range of security tools available, human intervention is mandatory to fix the security flaws of any outdated conventional antivirus software and to know how to protect the endpoints from Malicious attacks.

All of us totally rely on the use of laptops, tablets and mobiles almost for all our day to day needs. Its presence everywhere entails the demand for a higher fold of security that overshoots the traditional security perimeter as the conventional methods do not provide an effective protective mechanism.

Earlier days, these conventional antivirus software were a good source of protective system strong enough to defend any malware attacks. Current malware attacks / vulnerability are intelligent enough to get into the system through phishing mails. They are developed in such a way that when the target victim opens an email attachment or simply click on any of the links that the user finds it in the mail, then he/she will be highly be prone to infection.

The security attacks have possibly been increasing due to the users’ wrong practice of dealing with security issues. Most of the users have an outdated security software that makes the endpoints vulnerable to malware infections. Installing a security software is not just enough to protect the endpoint devices it is also important for the users to keep a check on the updates of the software for any latest security patches. A recent study on human behavior confirms that most of the humans are prone to the phishing emails that they get convinced and click on the attachments and the links and hence get infected. If you are looking at Protecting your Endpoints it is not about relying on the security software completely it is also important to use a proper sense of intelligence.
