BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Barkly, the company advancing endpoint security by combining the strongest, smartest protection with the simplest management, announced a steep increase in companies selecting Barkly for antivirus replacement. Companies have become increasingly aware of the dramatic security gap left by antivirus’ inability to protect against modern day attacks. Barkly’s ability to close this gap while simultaneously delivering a superior management experience has given organizations the confidence to replace their legacy antivirus.
“With endless attacks and evolving innovation by cyber criminals, we needed a solution that lets me sleep at night. Barkly gives me this piece of mind protecting my endpoints where traditional antivirus fails. Barkly closes our protection gap through a unique 3-level architecture that has visibility into all levels of the system to block attacks. This powerful protection on top of a simple management experience gives me the extra edge needed to avoid potential attacks such as ransomware and other malicious actors,” said Phil Maio, CISO Avidia Bank.
Barkly customer Eric Owen of BÜCHI Corporation echoed Maio when he said, “We needed to replace our antivirus with a solution that could stop all of today’s threats. Barkly protects our endpoints against the evolving threat landscape, enables us to remotely take action, and provides real-time alerts. Thanks to Barkly’s strong protection, we were able to replace our legacy antivirus with confidence.”
Antivirus’ inability to defend against modern attacks is leaving businesses vulnerable and last year over 50% of businesses with antivirus were compromised. These attacks costs on average $301 per employee. “It is too expensive to rely on a product that is unable to defend against all attack types. Barkly’s ability to stop even the most advanced threats all while delivering a platform that is so simple to manage, it can be managed remotely from a smartphone, makes Barkly a clear choice for antivirus replacement,” said Mike Duffy, CEO of Barkly.
“Barkly's different layers of protection with the agent, combined with the simplicity of managing the overall deployment, make a compelling case for organizations looking for an approach to endpoint security with low operational impact,” said Fernando Montenegro, Senior Analyst at 451 Research.
Barkly is independently certified for antivirus replacement by AV-TEST and Coalfire. The comprehensive testing, completed by AV-TEST in November of 2017, proved Barkly’s antivirus replacement efficacy with zero impact to performance.
