Every year, organizations spend millions of frustrating hours and countless sums of money trying to reverse the damage done by malware attacks. The harm caused by malware can be astronomical, going well beyond intellectual property loss and huge fines levied for non-compliance. In 2014, the cost of malware attacks and resulting breaches was estimated at $491 billion.i And these costs include more than just the money spent trying to directly respond to security breaches. Productivity, long-term profitability, and brand reputation are often severely impacted as well.

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.

This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.
