What we need to understand is that no single tool or policy can adequately defend against every type of malware threat.  A variety of tools and approaches is essential to protect an organization.   Since there are so many tools out there, it’s easy to buy one that isn’t needed or underutilize the tools you do have.

Knowing the function and role of each potential tool is essential for a cost-effective and comprehensive cybersecurity strategy for addressing malware threats.
