How to protect against mobile malware. Mobility is transforming enterprises at an unprecedented rate with the continued proliferation of smart devices, explosive development of mobile apps and increased access to work files. Employees are empowered by their organizations to be more productive at virtually any time and from anywhere, adopting policies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and even allowing the use of personal apps for work-related activities. However, organizations have not kept pace with this mobility explosion by deploying the enterprise-grade security needed to protect their sensitive information. Hackers and thieves are seizing on this opportunity to penetrate networks and acquire sensitive work data from mobile endpoints. IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate these mobile threats.

These days, fraudsters have it easier than ever. The volume of devices commonly in use and the numbers of applications and websites accessed daily have grown so large so fast that organizations can be overwhelmed in trying to protect their resources and their users. The result? Innocent—but sometimes devastating—errors. An organization may deploy only partial measures to protect against threats. And users may actively work around protection to avoid cumbersome security procedures.

In today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world more than a few IT managers have lost sleep over the thought of an employee device, loaded with sensitive company data, falling into the wrong hands. Lookout commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a national survey of IT managers in the Fall of 2013 that uncovered substantial security concerns related to mobile devices, especially around malware and data loss. Ultimately, the survey revealed that IT managers do not believe existing security solutions can adequately address the mobile security challenges faced by businesses today.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years. As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

The Adwind Remote Administration Tool is a backdoor Trojan written in Java language that targets various platforms that support Java files. Adwind does not exploit any vulnerabilities. In most cases, for an infection to succeed, the user must run the malware by double-clicking the .jar file that is usually distributed as an attachment, or opening an infected Microsoft Word document. The infection spreads if the Java Runtime Environment is installed on the user's computer. After the malicious .jar file is executed on the target system, the malware installs silently and connects to a remote server via a preconfigured port to receive commands from a remote attacker and perform other illegal operations.

SE Labs tested CylancePROTECT® in an offline environment against major threats that subsequently appeared in the wild. The test explores the product’s ability to prevent new threats from attacking endpoint systems successfully. CylancePROTECT contains technology designed to identify and block malware using what it claims to be an “artificial intelligence” (AI) model. This model can be updated over time. However, in this test we used the model created in May 2015 and did not permit further updates so that the software was unable to receive new models or edit the existing one. The test exposed systems protected by this older version of CylancePROTECT to very impactful threats discovered and reported widely after May 2015. In this way, the test shows to what extent the product was able to predict how future threats would appear. This “Predictive Advantage” (PA), the advantage that users of the product have against future adversaries, is presented in this report.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

A dversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t

Every 14 seconds. That’s how often analysts predict ransomware will attack a business this year.1 Despite the best efforts to thwart ransomware attacks, cyber criminals are innovative, and they continue to create new malware. This means more sophisticated and targeted ransomware attacks are coming—all with the same goal: Disrupt business operations in the hopes victims will pay to restore order. No industry is immune. And because enterprises are now even more attractive targets than consumers,2 your organization must proactively prepare for when, not if, cyber criminals come for your data.

Code signing is at a crossroads. In many enterprises, the traditional approach remains standard procedure: you purchase a code-signing certificate, download it, and deploy it locally for all your code-signing needs. When carefully managed, this approach can still be very effective in guarding against malware. But recent events have shown that many companies are finding it a challenge to manage their code signing certificate deployments—and failures in certificate management can have serious consequences. To discover how our Secure App Service solution can help you manage your codesigning efforts and provide enterprise-level support, all at a predictable cost, download this whitepaper today and find out more.

A new report from Gigamon ATR helps security practitioners understand how Emotet, LokiBot and TrickBot traversed enterprise networks without detection in 2018. It particularly focuses on the malwares’ command and control (C2) and lateral movement, as these behaviors expose opportunities to observe network traffic, discover these threats and reduce risk. The goal: shorter mean time to detection and response, a more mature security program and a balanced approach to mitigating risk.
