As many companies have already discovered, virus and malware infections are becoming more prevalent than ever regardless of the AV solutions in place. Malware continues to grow as the greatest threat to intellectual property or network assets. Most companies remain unaware of how widespread the problem is or even how much malware has propagated the network.
Most anti-virus solutions work to remove infections based on signatures that get written by anti-virus companies when malware is detected in an environment. While this technology is effective in removing threats the anti-virus solution already knows about, advanced malware has a way of morphing the instruction set once it has starting infecting the network. These advanced infections can bypass most AV solutions because quite often your malware that is affecting your network has adapted itself to your environment. This leads to quite dangerous and challenging scenarios where a clean AV scan can lead to a false sense of security. There can be numerous infected machines calling out to command and control points all over the world and establish communication that stealthily fly under the radar and may be disseminating information about your network, business processes, or valuable client information.
