The cyber threat landscape is evolving by the second. And according to Symantec's Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) 2013, a variety of trends are underscoring the importance of having a layered approach to security.

For most, this begins and ends with the installation of a basic antivirus protection program. However, this approach is no longer effective as cyber criminals are shifting gears from single, high-profile attacks to finely-targeted assaults using little-known malware mutations. A lone antivirus protection program is simply obsolete with the immense complexities of the modern-day threat landscape. The only way to successfully thwart these viral security breaches is with a layered approach to security—one that only Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 can offer. Symantec’s multi-layered approach is a mix of intelligence-based technologies that scour files, the Web, and your network to ensure that malicious malware hasn’t intruded. With five layers of protection that cover everything from Network-based protection to Reputation-based protection, it’s simply the only way to safeguard your organization’s precious data.

Having only a basic AV with other layers disabled is as good as not having an AV at all.
