But digital acceleration doesn’t come without a cost. A scattered workforce brings an expanded attack surface, and hackers have taken full advantage of the opportunity to strike.
Since the pandemic began, cyberattacks have increased by 400%, and many home Wi-Fi networks are unable to withstand the assault. In fact, over 80% of home-office routers were found to be vulnerable to potential cyberattacks.
When it comes to these cyberattacks, malware remains a major concern. With one click, an infection can wreak havoc on your network, allow hackers to steal critical information, delete files and destroy your devices.
Advanced security is vital when protecting your business and employees. And, while traditional antivirus software is important, it relies on recognizing known malware or suspicious activity.
Today, cybercriminals are more sophisticated, determined and organized than ever before, and cyberthreats are largely undetectable. Traditional software may not be enough to thwart modern hackers.
Luckily, there’s a better way to protect your endpoints: micro-virtual machines (micro-VMs).
HP Sure Click Enterprise stops endpoint attacks by creating micro-VMs that secure every end-user task — from surfing the web to opening emails to downloading attachments.
But first: What is a micro-VM?
A micro-VM is a form of application isolation. Think of it as a virtual container that automatically traps any malicious activity. Rather than trying to recognize malware after an application is running — like traditional antivirus software — HP Sure Click opens untrusted websites and files in their own isolated virtual containers. The malware is then tricked into believe that it’s actually running in your PC.
If there’s malicious code present, it’s trapped within the micro-VM, unable to affect your PC, access your files or get into other browser tabs.
When the browser tab or file is closed, the entire micro-VM is automatically discarded, and the malware trapped inside it is deleted. No special training or additional steps are needed; just close the browser, and the malware is gone without any breach.
Ironclad malware protection
Sure Click uses rich threat forensics from advanced behavioral analysis techniques to identify malicious activity. Once detected, the software deploys hardware-enforced isolation to separate incoming files and web content from the host PC and internal network.
Advanced threat intelligence
The isolated malware generates threat alerts for Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts and sends threat feeds to third-party systems. This constant reporting helps harden your defensive infrastructure.
Instant protection for key attack vectors
With Sure Click, you’ll have out-of-the-box protection for key attack vectors — such as email attachments, phishing links and file downloads — without wading through complex configuration settings.
Threat triage with contextual intelligence
Sure Click’s workflow-based threat triage features augmented threat intelligence, speed analyst identification of true positives for resolutions, and proactive remediation across Sure Click-protected and non-Sure Click systems.
Actionable dashboards and reports
You can easily see and share the value of Sure Click with executive summary reports for your CISO and CIO, an operational dashboard for your desktop team and a threat dashboard for your security team.
The Sure Click approach dramatically decreases your attack surface without any change to the way end users access their email, browsers or data. With this leading software, you can secure and defend your most vulnerable endpoints.
