Know Your Security Model: Traditional vs. Contextual Protection
In technology, buzzwords come and go, but one of the more common terms in security these days is “next-generation (or next-gen) endpoint protection.” But what does that really mean?
Solutions from all origins are now deemed “next-gen” with seemingly little basis for comparison. Is it nothing more than spin, or is there something fundamentally different about these solutions that separate them from the pack?
In this case, where there’s smoke, there is fire as well. Next-generation endpoint protection represents a fundamental shift in the underlying protection model that the solution relies upon.
It’s more technically advanced, more adaptive and more capable of detecting threats, no matter the shape they take. It’s not only capable of stopping known threats, but also new attacks that have never been seen before.
