Iconic IT’s Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) Leverages AI Antivirus Technology for Complete Cybersecurity Services
There are many AI antivirus platforms available, and each promises to tighten up your cybersecurity solutions with cutting-edge technology. And the truth is, many of them can do just that. So why is Iconic IT’s Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) so different, and why is it such an important part of our cybersecurity services?
Traditional Antivirus vs AI Antivirus
Iconic IT’s EDR uses an AI-based antivirus as part of its cybersecurity services, but why is that better than traditional antivirus?
Behavior-Based AI Antivirus Beats Traditional Antivirus
Antivirus software has come a long way from when it looked for virus signatures, a string of code that was found in most malware families. These signatures are as unique as a fingerprint, and antivirus software would scan for those individual characteristics. Security patches would give the software updated information on new or evolving virus signatures.
Of course, the bad actors would find ways around this software and hide their malware in what appeared to be good files or applications. This means the outdated ways of detecting malware simply aren’t effective any longer.
Unfortunately, many MSPs still rely on traditional antivirus for their clients’ cybersecurity solutions.

AI Antivirus Emerges Victorious
You now have a choice in antivirus platforms; traditional software or its much more effective counterpart, AI-based antivirus.
Iconic IT’s EDR uses machine learning with advanced algorithms to detect more than just virus signatures. It identifies two behaviors:
Potential malware behavior: AI antivirus solutions look for ways malware behaves, such as applications that are acting suspiciously, programs that launch within programs to hide, and other “odd” behaviors.
User behavior: AI antivirus also looks at the users’ behaviors. Who do they talk to, what types of files do they open, what are the predictable patterns of behavior? If a “user” is acting suspiciously, AI antivirus will be looking for answers.
Unlike boxed solutions or other traditional antivirus platforms that check for virus signatures, AI antivirus also learns not only your behaviors but malware behaviors, too.

Iconic IT’s EDR Uses Cutting Edge AI-Based Antivirus
Iconic IT is always looking for better solutions for clients, and that journey led us to create our unique EDR, a blend of the best AI antivirus and a 24/7 Security Operations Center. This allows Iconic IT to respond and remediate threats faster than ever.
Always Available Next-Generation Threat Coverage
Our EDR is more than traditional antivirus. It detects threats, both known and unknown, with behavior-identifying tech. It doesn’t matter where your employees are working, our EDR will have all your endpoints covered. It’s as effective with a remote workforce as it is in-office.
Our EDR uses patented AI technology that works on any server or desktop, including Mac, Windows, and virtual servers.
Our EDR will immediately restore files to a previous version if it detects any malware activity. This eliminates much of the unexpected and unwelcome downtime following a cybersecurity incident.
Our EDR detects the cause and origination of threats and reverses them far more rapidly than many other antivirus solutions can.
Iconic IT’s EDR Blends AI Antivirus with a Security Operations Center for Complete Cybersecurity Services
Our EDR takes the best anti-virus software available and combines it with a human touch. Iconic IT has a 24/7 Security Operations Center that ensures your antivirus is working efficiently, stopping bad applications, and letting your good applications run.
Not Everything That Looks Suspicious is Bad
Some of your trusted applications can look suspicious to some AI-based antivirus platforms. That’s because some of these applications have improper coding that can lead to false positives and flag the antivirus to start remediation…even if it doesn’t need to.
Why an AI Antivirus on Its Own Could Cause Harm
An AI antivirus will scan your network looking for suspicious files, and it may block safe applications and programs because it perceives them as malicious. If an AI antivirus runs without human intervention, it can slow your network, destroy applications, and remove good programming.
To run efficiently, AI antivirus needs a little human interaction.
That’s why our EDR blends the best AI antivirus with a manned Security Operations Center as part of our complete cybersecurity services.
What is a SOC?
A SOC, or security operations center, is the necessary human element that provides oversight for an AI-based antivirus. A manned SOC will respond to alerts and flags in the antivirus in real-time and make the final decision regarding a program. Is it safe? The program will be allowed to continue. Is it a threat? The program or files will be shut down and a remediation process started if necessary.
