Advanced Attacks Require Federal Agencies to Reimangine IT Security

FireEye

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.

This paper outlines:

The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.
