Protect customer threats

Address critical security issues

To provide comprehensive protection against malware, you need a range of top-tier security tools that offer key capabilities including managed antivirus, content filtering, endpoint protection, email security, and a lot more. N-able offers multiple options to address security issues, so you can help your clients avoid downtime and data loss while maintaining productivity.

Get access to security tools from an all-in-one solution

With N-able N-central®, you don’t have to switch between many security solutions. This tool brings the best network protection features together into a single solution that allows you to:

  • Detect threats before they are able to infect your clients’ devices
  • Run signature-based scans to compare any viruses found in your system to the most up-to-date virus definitions
  • Critically examine a file to determine if it is or isn’t a threat
  • Scan network traffic to identify threats early
  • Control access to network resources to shrink your attack surface

Restrict access and block problematic software

N-central employs multiple measures to address malware, including specific tools for restricting access to suspicious sites and blocking problematic software. You can prevent confidential work data from leaving the local network, as well as set rules that prevent sensitive information from being entered into email messages or HTTP sites.

In addition, N-central lets you restrict access to various network resources or services, and control how specific applications access the internet—you can give legitimate applications automated access to necessary resources. This feature can also protect against port scans and alert on newly added Wi-Fi devices.

Increase security with EDR software

Endpoint protection must be robust enough to detect new and emerging threat patterns. N-able Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) uses artificial intelligence to help your customers stay ahead of the next malware attack. The tool’s AI and machine learning provide static and behavioral analysis about new threats at each endpoint so you can respond quickly and decisively.

Use the Threat Center visualization feature to show your clients how you’re protecting their devices to help demonstrate the value they’re getting. If a threat is detected, EDR can roll back the infected devices to their pre-infected states in a matter of minutes.

N-able Integrations - man at computer

Use integrations for additional flexibility

N-able remote monitoring solutions integrate with many other products to ensure an even higher level of protection against malware.

  • ESET: This well-known solution for malware protection combined with N-able products allows you to unlock more automation options and advanced endpoint security.
  • Kaspersky Endpoint Security: Use this integration to deploy and manage Kaspersky’s products to increase security across all endpoints managed by N-able RMM and N-central.
  • ThreatLocker: This integration makes it possible for ThreatLocker agents to be deployed seamlessly from inside your remote monitoring platform (N-able RMM or N-central).
Mail Assure email metrics and bandwidth

Filter emails to keep customers safe

A solid strategy for improving cybersecurity must include business email. N-able Mail Assure provides powerful, cloud-based email threat protection. Using an Intelligent Protection & Filtering Engine, Mail Assure employs collective threat intelligence—powered by more than 23 million mailboxes—to quickly identify both known and emerging threats.

Mail Assure email overview and dashboard

Proactively recognize email threats

Leveraging a variety of technologies, Mail Assure pairs threat intelligence with SSL/TLS traffic encryption to keep email transmissions safe from outside influences and free from malware or suspicious links. Mail Assure is designed as a flexible solution that puts control and configurations in your customers’ hands—all the way down to the individual email user.

In addition to compromised email checks, Mail Assure also collects filtering statistics that can be reviewed to determine strengths and weaknesses, historical patterns in behavior, and unusual activity.

What is the difference between static and dynamic malware analysis?

What is the difference between static and dynamic malware analysis?

Static malware analysis is a relatively safe process of examining a file without running the malicious program. By looking at the metadata—file name, file type, size, etc.—you can learn about the threats without executing code that could infect your system.

Dynamic analysis, in contrast, runs the infected file to analyze its behavior. Since it’s risky, you must perform dynamic analysis in a “sandbox” environment that is safely partitioned away from other systems. The software used for this monitors the sandbox to see what kind of effect the virus has and to reveal suspicious behavior—such as communicating with a hacker’s external server.

What are some patch management best practices?

What are some patch management best practices?

One of the best ways to keep customers safe from malware is by applying rigorous patch management rules to ensure all software is promptly updated to include the latest security measures.

To shrink a customer’s attack surface and better protect their assets, follow these patch management best practices:

  1. Keep an up-to-date systems inventory: Regularly scan your system’s inventory so you’ll always know how many applications and devices must be patched.
  2. Divide your assets into categories: Group assets from most to least likely to be attacked to prioritize patch deployment.
  3. Streamline software whenever possible: The more versions of software you have, the harder it becomes to patch. Try to stick to the essentials.
  4. Keep up with vendor patch announcements: Third-party products often release their own patches, so keep an eye on your emails or communication channels.
  5. Test before you deploy any patch: Test patches in a sandbox environment to ensure they won’t cause issues or crash assets.

Be sure to read this guide on the best practices for patch management.

What is the difference between reactive and proactive cybersecurity?

What is the difference between reactive and proactive cybersecurity?

It all boils down to how your team responds to a security incident. If your cybersecurity strategy is reactive, you respond to an event only after it has occurred, prioritizing clean-up and damage mitigation. This approach leaves you vulnerable to security breaches and hinders your ability to respond to threats quickly enough to keep damage to a minimum. If your cybersecurity strategy is proactive, you anticipate the possibility of attacks and take measures to prevent them before they occur. This approach might seem unnecessary when there are no threats on the horizon, but your team will be better prepared when a threat emerges.
