Are you weary from fighting malware, ransomware, and other threats that your ineffective and tired antivirus software can’t stop?
If so, join us for our webinar, “Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore” to hear why it’s time to rise up and overthrow traditional, reactive antivirus solutions in favor of proactive endpoint protection powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
During this webinar, you will see a live demo of AI in action with CylancePROTECT®, and cover the key reasons why your current antivirus solution probably isn’t working anymore:
- It’s Reactive: Legacy, signature-based antivirus products cannot prevent malware from executing. Cylance AI technology protects before the machine is infected.
- It’s Ineffective: Legacy security tools perform at a 70 – 90% success rate. Cylance routinely performs with near perfect efficacy, at 99%+.
- It’s Burdensome: On average, traditional endpoint security products use 50% to over 70% of CPU cycles during intensive scans. CylancePROTECT is outstandingly lightweight at just 1% – 3% CPU utilization.
- It’s Costly: Signature-based antivirus solutions impact the bottom line with more layers of unproductive technology. Cylance protects with a single agent and a single cloud-based management tool, and that translates into big cost savings.
If your organization is embarking on a refresh of your primary storage system this year, this is the one webinar that you will want to attend. IT evaluators that haven't looked at storage in a few years, will be impressed the use of flash to improve performance, while many claim to integrate file (NFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI, Fibre) protocols. These features though are now table stakes for the modern storage solution.
While all of these features are important (and not created equal), IT professionals should demand capabilities that solve today's organizational challenges like eliminating shadow IT, improving multi-site productivity and long term data retention as well as meeting increasingly strict compliance standards. IT professionals should look for not only high performance and universal protocol support but also enterprise file sync and share, inter-data center sync and secure archive with compliance.
For most enterprises, optimizing your Windows fileserver means buying a new, bigger server with more capacity and better network connections. Or it means buying a dedicated Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Then they feel they need to add new ransomware and data protection software. All of these "solutions" are expensive, involve a costly data migration and don't really increase IT efficiency. In this webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and Caringo will teach you how data management can eliminate the need for additional Windows file servers, capacity and protection.
