It helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. I have seen several instances where, when I surf the web, Deep Instinct prevents it and quarantines it for me. The other solution that I am using doesn't pick it up. Deep Instinct prevented me from clicking on it. Otherwise, I would have been infected.
The malware classification is very good because it tells me, "This is most likely ransomware or a worm." In other solutions, they usually just have a flat statement saying it's a worm or just that it's a virus. That leaves it open-ended and you have to do your own investigation, put it into a sandbox and really explore it before you actually know what it is. A lot of technical or even expert knowledge is required before you can analyze it. Here, you can do it without an expert opinion. It's better laid out in the static form. It even tells you the process chain, where you know what executes and then what happens to it. If it's running something that it shouldn't, then that's potentially something bad.

I also tested the Symantec, which spent two days searching the server for one agent and one server, which is troubling. On the other hand, Deep Instinct takes me five seconds to install.
We use this solution for classification of unknown malware without human involvement.
I collect malware from the internet. I put it into the testing environment of Deep Instinct, and it can always be detected.

It helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware, easily. For example, when a file attached to an email is opened, Deep Instinct prevents any malware immediately, compared to other similar solutions.
Malware classification information is displayed automatically, within the event.

It also helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. I was trying to take a backup of one of my mobile phones on my laptop, and some script would have ended up being uploaded into my machine. Because the agent was live, the moment it detected something it just blocked it. It just picks up things straight away.
It classifies unknown malware as well. I've got various classifications already: Either a backdoor entry or 100 percent virus or malware or a scripting shell. Scripting shell has been detected quite a lot. Viruses have been detected. Two backdoor entries have been trying to get on. I've got a number of different types of attacks that have been happening.

It absolutely, 100 percent helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. That's the strength of the product. We've got over 20,000 endpoints under our purview. We had an event this past summer where there were some environments that hadn't fully migrated over to this solution. One of the users had an issue. Within those environments, the machines that were defended by Deep Instinct continued without issue, whereas user machines that were not defended by Deep Instinct had substantial issues that were not resolved until we actually were able to get Deep Instinct on them.
Deep Instinct provides classification of unknown malware without human involvement. Our analysts and engineers use that data as part of the remediation process. The feature is tremendously insightful and tremendously helpful. As an operator, anything that shortens the path to clarity is a value.
