Anti-virus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), dialers, fraud tools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity theft (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), botnets and DDoS attacks.

Has anyone implemented Malwarebytes Business EndPoint product as their primary tool for protection?   Or are you adding this onto your existing antivirus solution?   Installed on servers or just workstations?   Looking for a little feedback.   I'm currently testing Avast Business Security app.....   Small business, small budget.

Currently our Proofpoint can take from a few minutes to 3 hours before it detects new
emails containing certain attachments & links (ie new threats) are 'malicious' or spam.
To claw back malicious emails 2-3 hours later is rather late. Wud rather have late delivery.

Our Bluecoat MAA that protects against malicious downloading (or malicious sites) can
take up to several minute : just encountered one case yesterday where malicious .eot
files were downloaded by several users before it blocked users from downloading.
This Bluecoat MAA is supposed to protect against 0-day and unknown threats as well
but we have got quite a few infections/downloads in the past: possibly its 'sandboxing'
is not real-time / fast enough.

I'm hesistant to deploy endpoint IPS (HIPS) on workstations at this moment so skip
this for the time being as HIPS can impact legit services/apps if not tested thoroughly
while network based tools like MAA (& Trendmicro Discovery) are less disruptive.

Besides educating users (which we have done quite a lot), I'm looking for sandboxing
products that could perform much faster : I read one academic article that products
that implement 'prefetching' using multi layer of caches are much faster.  If they use
SSD, wud it be faster?

In particular against ransomware as one highly successful one as extracted below:

Sky News Technology Correspondent Tom Cheshire described the attack as "unprecedented". The ransomware appears to use NSA 0-day …

Trying to install McAfee ePO, and it has been one headache after another.

Environment is a Domain Controller running Server 2008R2 (yes, I know everywhere it says do not run on a DC, however we don't really have another option). SQL Server 2012. Tried both ePO 4.5.0 and 4.6.6.

I've been logging what I've been doing to try to create a continutity book, so these are the steps I have followed:

1.      On the target server, open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2.      If it does not already exist, create a new OU called “Managed Service Accounts”.
3.      In the Managed Service Accounts OU, create a new user named “XXXXX”, giving it a STRONG password.
4.      Ensure the “password never expires” box is checked, and that the user is added to the domain administrators group.
5.      Copy the folder “SQL 2008” to the desktop, and run “SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe” from within it.
6.      Select “New installation or add features to an existing installation”.
7.      Ensure the checkbox next to “I accept the license terms” is the ONLY box that is checked. Click Next.
8.      Click “Select All”. Leave the default directories. Click Next.
9.      Type “XXXXX” as the named instance. Click Next.
10.      Enter “DOMAIN\XXXXX” as the account name, enter the password next to “SQL Server Database Engine”. Click Next.
11.      Click “Add”, type in “Domain Admins”, click Ok. Click Next.
12.      Click Next.
13.      Review the installation complete page, click Close. Close the SQL 2008 installation window.
14.      …

Hi All,

We are using Sophos EndPoint antivirus, but now we have decided to change the product means we have started to evaluate different Antivirus products, reason we are changing Sophos because we got hit by Miner C virus few times, and Sophos EndPoint or there support was not able to resolve it
.
Anyways we are going to meet a tech and see live demonstration of Kaspersky, is that a good product? what others should we try? What questions should we ask them?

Our main need for Antivirus product is to provide secure environment to staff, generate reports, lock USB drives and also manage company mobile phones (Wipe/Lock if device gets lost), and exclude or include whitelisting's for applications, anything else we should look or explore in antivirus products?

thanks.

I have a number of customers on Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud who receive Email advising to renew their subscription as early as 3 months before their existing subscription expires.  The emails are from Symantec.

A number have asked me to purchase renewals for them and load these into the portal.

The renewal licenses are being consumed before the existing ones have expired - something that hasn't happened in the past.  A support request to Symantec has had the response can't fix get a refund, and renew again closer to the expiry date.

Has anyone else on SYM EP Cloud found this and have you resolved it.

You’ve already invested in ITSM tools, chat applications, automation utilities, and more. Fortify these solutions with intelligent communications so you can drive business processes forward.

With xMatters, you'll never miss a beat.

So, just set up a new McAfee environment from scratch.  ePO 5.3.1, Agent 5.0.4, and Move 4.5.0 using the Multiplatform Client.  I've got an SVM Manager pointing towards a single SVM at present.

I put the MPC on a stand-by server, configured the policies, and successfully pointed the MPC to the SVM Manager which in turn pointed it to our SVM.  Great!  I downloaded a test malware file from GRC and unzipped it.  The infected EXE disappeared before it could be unzipped.  Awesome!

BUT - I didn't get a pop-up notification, which I really want.  Also, nothing appears in the 'C:\Quarantine' folder.  I've checked and double checked that:

1. The Move OAS policy is set to 'Notify users when a threat is detected on a on-access scan   (Multi-Platform only)'
2. This setting populated to the client, which reports EventSink 14 in the MVADM config.
3. The McTray icon is set to show in the Agent policies

And I've tried this in console and RDP sessions.  Nothing shows in the mvadm log.  Nothing is logged to the ePO threat detections tab for the server.  What's the deal?

Thanks!

So I have a newer Dell Optiplex 9020 that in Windows, I was getting an error AVG Antivirus 2016 from the system tray that "avgui.exe unable to locate component" - So i tried a repair of AVG, it failed, so I decided to uninstall/reinstall. This worked, but as soon as I rebooted it came up with the error message "Please press ctrl+alt+del to restart your computer" - nothing before it (like "failed hard drive" or anything) and nothing after it. This is all it does. I went into the BIOS and checked the hard drive etc and everything appears to be functioning, I have a feeling that the operating system was affected by the problem with AVG. Any ideas on how to restore without having to wipe out OS and reload?

I get error 577 when trying to start the Windows defender services. This is 'Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.' it goes on for a bit.
I am using windows 10 latest updates.

I have no other anti-virus installed. I had Superantispyware installed but removed it trying to solve this problem. Windows firewall is active.
