While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

DDDoS attacks are bigger, smarter and more dangerous than ever. Incapsula's research shows that almost 33% of Network (Layer 3&4) DDoS attacks exceeded 20 Gbps. At the same time, DDoS botnets used to wage Application (Layer 7) attacks are up by 240% compared to 2013. This report details our findings and insights into the latest DDoS attack trends.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding in a dramatic way, bringing to question the issue of availability versus security, as security measures are having a difficult time keeping pace with the development of IoT devices. The introduction of more efficient semiconductors, coupled with revolutionary technology that allows semiconductors to store as well as process complex instructions, means that the IoT may be a more attractive target for hackers. IoT devices from healthcare and industrial systems (i.e., SCADA) could be the most at risk for significant service interruptions and may have secondary and/or tertiary effects on other industries.

Given the evolving way Web and Cloud applications are used—and the constantly shifting threat landscape organizations must confront—proxy architecture is more important than ever in terms of securing Internet access. It’s imperative to have effective compliance and company policy enforcement, and the use of a secure web gateway with advanced functionality is a key piece of an enterprise’s security architecture.

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot. Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.

A number of network security technologies have arisen that claim to be the "next generation" of network defense - but what does this concept actually mean? How is the threat landscape changing the way we think about and deploy network security solutions? Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research provides insight into what we can expect in the area of network security and how to leverage new technologies to meet today's security challenges in light of other considerations such as overall complexity and performance.

The primary approaches used to fight advanced threats over the past several years simply aren’t effective. Traditional methods such as user education, vulnerability patching, and malware detection have failed to protect enterprises against the current threat landscape. Attackers continuously develop sophisticated tactics and evasion techniques to bypass the latest protection methods, requiring the security industry to find a different approach to malware protection. Trusteer has pioneered a new cybercrime prevention approach that provides unparalleled protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, information-stealing malware.
