Is your endpoint protection causing server freezes?

Ever-increasing security incidents like bot infection, ransomware and APT attacks have proven to organizations the importance of network security protection. As endpoints are the last line of security, organizations understandably have increasingly strong demands for endpoint security.

However, the deployment of endpoint detection and response (EDR) software, as well as next generation enhanced detection & response (XDR) products presents great challenges in operations and maintenance (O&M).  System freezes, blue screens, and business interruption due to application incompatibility & false-positive misidentification make asset chaos unavoidable and security O&M complex. Balancing user experiences and security has become a major issue for deploying endpoint protection in today’s COVID-19, work-from-home world.

Next generation anti-virus (NGAV), EDR, and XDR software can overload production servers. In addition to virus detection and removal, these products also gather software statistics, performs real-time computer diagnosis, security log analysis, and many other functions within agent resulting in high resource utilization and server freezes, greatly impacting business operations. At the same time, poorly tuned AI, impromptu heavy scanning, and inadequate software compatibility mean more computer crashes and blue screens.

Sangfor Endpoint Secure “slims down” endpoint security.

Sangfor Endpoint Secure Protect agents only run virus scanning and removal with the fully loaded security analysis controlled by the management platform. Official performance testing conducted by AV-TEST, the world’s authority on anti-virus software testing, determined that Sangfor Endpoint Secure obtained a full Performance Impact score of 6, using only 7.83% of system resources, much less than most other endpoint protection products and achieving “zero interference” during normal business hours.

Sangfor Endpoint Secure supports more than 75 endpoint operating systems including Windows XP SP3, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 SP2, and Windows Server 2008. Endpoint Secure has achieved Microsoft WHQL certification, and has become the recommended anti-virus software for Microsoft’s official Windows 8/8.1, effectively ensuring business stability and avoiding blue screens.

Endpoint Secure is a key component of Sangfor’s XDDR (eXtended, Detection, Defense & Response) security framework, directly integrating with Sangfor products like the NGAF firewall/WAF and Sketchup 2016 Download Grátis Cyber Command threat analysis and hunting platform. Innovative features include the world’s first and most reliable endpoint ransomware honeypot to identify and kill ransomware encryption in real-time and “One-Click Kill” to eradicate found ransomware and other APTs network wide with a single mouse press.

As the future of endpoint security, Sangfor Endpoint Secure is committed to providing enterprise-level users with endpoint security protection that is lightweight and easy to use, provides real-time protection against AI based APTs, and makes east-west traffic visible and controllable.  Sangfor Endpoint Secure is widely used in many industries including government, finance, education, healthcare, and other enterprises. With the deployment of more than 4 million endpoints to date, Sangfor Endpoint Secure is the trusted endpoint protection for governments, enterprises, and public institutions.
