NGAV (Next-Gen Antivirus)

Next-generation antivirus (NGAV) software helps companies detect, respond to and prevent all kinds of cyberattack tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs). While there is no one set definition for NGAV, it is generally accepted that NGAV technologies supplement traditional antivirus software – which relies on signature files or definition-based threats to identify attacks – with at least one “advanced feature,” such as artificial intelligence, allowing for more advanced threat prevention.
