Is Shepherd an antivirus?

No, Shepherd is an elaborate endpoint security platform capable of detecting and responding to threats that an antivirus can easily miss.

  • Antiviruses focus on the application layer, while Shepherd works very close to the OS kernel for all endpoint devices like laptops, phones, and tablets.
  • Unlike antivirus, Shepherd detects a malicious chain of events and works backward to figure out which application or device started the activity. Upon finding the rogue process or device, it can generate cause-attached alerts and isolate/terminate the process.
  • Shepherd can partner with the existing antivirus solution on an endpoint to improve its alerts and confidence.

What is considered an endpoint in endpoint security?

  • Examples of endpoint devices include:
    • Desktops
    • Laptops
    • Mobile devices
    • Tablets
    • Smartwatches
    • Internet of Things (IoT) devices
    • Point-of-Sale (POS) systems
    • Medical devices
    • Servers

Why do I need Shepherd?

Shepherd is an extensive endpoint security platform that protects you against many threats, including but not limited to malware, ransomware, zero-day, outdated patches, device loss, Ddos, etc.

Can I turn off Shepherd?

Yes. Right-Click on the Shepherd Logo on the system tray to see the exit option. However, we highly recommend keeping Shepherd running around the clock. It cannot protect your device and data when it is turned off. Also, your admin might receive a notification when Shepherd shuts down.
