Signature-based antivirus products have long been the mainstay of endpoint security. Although new forms of malware require behavior-based protection for effective day-zero protection, antivirus continues to be a valuable component of endpoint protection strategies. The primary value of signature-based antivirus is providing confidence that malware can be removed from the endpoint, since the malware was identified by name. Although behavior-based controls are the primary means of stopping malware attacks on endpoints, signature-based antivirus plays an important role in identifying the malware, allowing a high level of confidence in malware removal.
