Once a technical rarity, malware threats have become commonplace for many companies. Multiple groups — from state-sponsored actors to cybercriminals to hacktivists — are now using malicious code to infect devices, steal information and lock down files. These “endpoint attacks” take advantage of existing vulnerabilities, undocumented bugs and brute force to accomplish their aim, making them a constant worry for InfoSec teams. Many malicious programs are specifically designed to go undetected as they work to gain control over your computer resources, spread from system to system, and report their activities to a command and control (CNC) server. Add the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and you’re also dealing with the challenge of widespread, high-traffic DDoS attacks, which can cripple web services in minutes. More bad news? Today’s firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and antivirus solutions aren’t up to the challenge of containing or eliminating these threats.
To combat emerging security risks, IT must adapt — this means embracing the reality that device infections are common and there is no single solution to protect assets or stop this threat at the gate. To address endpoint attacks, organizations need a new set of strategies:
At Halock Security Labs, it’s our mandate to both understand the challenges presented by evolving attack vectors and help you adjust to these new threats.
Malware is evolving. Fight back with advanced endpoint detection and response from Halock Security Labs.
Today’s coordinated threats often enter the network as Web traffic and then hijack resources, perform recon, morph, and establish long-term control over endpoints without even being detected.
