In reality, pretty much no malware is completely unique, it’s just its appearance that makes it seem new.

The software is only as good as its database of signatures to feed the scanning engine.

Simply double-click the downloaded file to install it.

Update Star Free and Update Star Premium come with the same installer.

Unfortunately a small number of endpoints had a dat file that was over a week old and hadn’t picked up the signature database version that would have blocked the malware.

As a result, the data residing on a number of endpoint machines and connected network drives was all encrypted and held to ransom by the attackers.

Cylance Protect is a Next-Generation Antivirus product that doesn’t use signatures or heuristics or isolation or sandboxes.

Cylance uses a mathematical engine that resides on the endpoint that detects malware based on years of machine learning.

Your learning process allows you to accurately detect something.

And Cylance’s years of machine learning have allowed them to launch a truly unique product that doesn’t suffer from the shortcomings of signature based AV products.

The result is that however good your signatures are, and however fast your vendor has created them and got them to your endpoints, there will still be machines vulnerable to newer pieces of malware.

By way of a real example, an organisation I know fell victim to the Locky virus last week despite their up-to-date Mc Afee Antivirus products detecting and blocking it.

Antivirus is the last line of defence against malware and yet most organisations still rely on a defunct technology for their protection – signatures.
