How Proactive Defense works: watch the webinar recording to learn why it is so effective in stopping malware

layers
Firewalls and malware scanners focus on protecting against known attacks, but how do you protect against new security threats? With Proactive Defense in Imunify360 . It proactively stops malware from attacking your websites and servers. It intercepts all activity in real time, analyzes the behavior of PHP scripts, and then stops any known or unknown malicious codes from being executed. Proactive Defense is very effective because it analyzes what PHP scripts do rather than what is actually in the code or file.  Here you will learn how Proactive Defense works and how it stops even the malware that scanners are unable to detect.  View the recorded webinar here.
