Anti-virus software is another one of the tools for cyber security that many computer users are likely to be familiar with. It’s generally recommended that everyone install some sort of anti-virus software on their devices to keep dangerous software from infecting it.
Currently, the most powerful anti-virus software is called “next-gen software.” It has been in use since 2014 and is known by a shift toward signature-less detection. This type of anti-virus software may implement machine learning such as artificial intelligence, behavioral detection and cloud-based file detonation into its programming.
Cyber security professionals need to keep up to date on the latest developments in anti-virus software to protect the companies they work for. Because viruses are constantly evolving, it’s essential that companies are aware of the most effective, cutting-edge anti-virus technology and make upgrades to existing software when it becomes available.
