What Is Next-Generation Antivirus?

The Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) is a type of antivirus software whose functionalities improve upon traditional antivirus threat prevention and detection techniques. NGAVs usually feature machine learning algorithms, user behavior analytics, and artificial intelligence to develop better threat detection solutions (e.g., identifying new zero-day exploits). Since NGAVs are cloud-based, they are simple and quick to deploy, which makes them a practical enterprise solution.
