What Is Advanced Malware Protection (AMP)?
Advanced malware protection software is designed to prevent, detect, and help remove threats in an efficient manner from computer systems. Threats can take the form of software viruses and other malware such as ransomware, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, and fileless malware.
// What is advanced malware?
Advanced malware's goal, in general, is to penetrate a system and avoid detection. It usually has a specific target—most often an organization or enterprise—with the objective of financial gain. It might also target similar organizations within the same industry, such as several companies in field of insurance or finance. Advanced malware can take the form of common malware that has been modified to increase its capability to infect.
// How does advanced malware work?
Once loaded onto a computer system, advanced malware can self-replicate and insert itself into other programs or files, infecting them in the process. It can even lay dormant for a time. Advanced malware can also test for conditions of a sandbox meant to block malicious files and attempt to fool security software into signaling that it is not malware.
// Why is advanced malware protection important?
Advanced malware protection is primarily designed to help organizations prevent breaches caused by advanced malware. The damage from such breaches can range from losing a single endpoint to incapacitating an entire IT infrastructure, causing loss of productivity to employees and potentially interrupting customer services and product sales and support.
