The security landscape changed dramatically with the maturation of crypto-ransomware in 2014. Not only did this new type of malware bring about a more lucrative business model for attackers, it also spurred the adoption of many so-called 'next-gen' endpoint security techniques.
While these techniques bring impressive new capabilities to the fight against malware, there is still no one 'silver bullet' that can stop every threat; a blend of advanced techniques is required to achieve maximum protection. This technical whitepaper takes a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of many of today's threat-protection techniques and outlines why organizations should employ a multi-layered, defense-in-depth approach to security.
Download this technical whitepaper which explores:
- The many shades of gray in the changing threat landscape and how to make sense of the evasion and detection arms race;
- Peeling back the layers of defense-in-depth, including signature-based and non-signature-based detection;
- Bringing a new level of intelligence to security with machine learning, including using malware DNA to stop zero-day attacks.
