APT: The Best Defense Is a Full Spectrum Offense

APT: The Best Defense Is a Full Spectrum Offense

APT attacks have led to highly visible security breaches at Target and other well-known organizations. This whitepaper explores three approaches for combating the critical APT lifecycle stages - protect, detect and remediate. The whitepaper also highlights how multi-tenant cloud solutions are better equipped than appliances in providing protection against APT attacks.

The multi-phase approach to APT defense focuses on:

  • Protection - Stopping the attack before it can even infect the initial target is the most critical phase of APT defense;
  • Detection - Even with robust protection, detection abilities play a critical role and early detection will help contain the scope and impact of the attack;
  • Remediate - The typical phases of the remediation phase are contain, isolate (until remediation can occur) and fix.
