Why Antivirus Software Is DeadAntivirus can never be safer than virus free.
Antivirus can never be safer than virus free.
If you had to defuse a bomb would you rather wear the highest rated bomb suit or us a bomb disposal robot? The same logic applies when opening a link in an email. Relying on antivirus software to open a link will never be safer than using a link opening robot, or better known as a remote browser.
The top cyber security firm said “anti virus software only catches 45% of malware attacks”. According to Bitdefender, one in six spam email messages comes bundled with some form of ransomware. 1 in every 4 emails that bypass Office 365 is a phishing email. Clicking on a simple link in an email is shutting major cities down.
Antivirus companies are not immune from being hacked either. In May, McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro were all hacked.
Still feel safe using your antivirus software now?
Unless you have a bunch of Bitcoins burning a hole in your pocket and like having your data shared on the Dark Web, don’t rely on your antivirus program, instead start using a remote browser to open EVERY link. TraceFree assumes that every link is dangerous and opens it safely in the cloud away from your device.
Department of Defense and major financial institutions are already adopting the cloud browser to protect their network.
Antivirus software is dead, browsing isolation technology killed it.
You can’t stop phishing emails, or your employees from clicking on the links in them, but you can stop the link from doing damage to your network. Open any link safely with TraceFree the virus free browser.
