Hi,

Sorry if this has already been discussed. I saw some somewhat similar threads, but not quite what I'm after. I am looking for an AV solution that I can use for my family that has remote management. I really like Cylance Smart AV, but of course it only detects on file execution. Are there any lightweight network/web-based security products that I could pair with Cylance to cover this gap? That is, to detect on things like known bad domains, identify phishing pages, malicious scripts on websites; things like that. That would be, I think, some combination of static (known bad infrastructure) and behavioral-based (detecting credential harvesting pages or pages with malicious scripts), I think?

A traditional AV solution does both protection against malicious binaries plus the rest, of course. But I like Cylance's lightweight nature, plus its supposed "next gen" capability and remote management features (I particularly like how it gives you the file hash for detected files, allowing me to Google in order to do some basic triage). So I'm wondering if there's a lightweight product that would pair nicely with it.

If you are ready to spend money then I'd recommend GlassWire Firewall + Netcraft. Additional web protection isn't needed imo, as most browsers have a quite decent protection built in. Netcraft however is a good browser extension to block phishing pages if you want that. :)

I am willing to spend money, though this is for home devices, so not too much. Thanks for the recommendation, I will check out GlassWire and Netcraft.
