A new generation of customized, tightly targeted, and byte-level obfuscated malicious code (malware) disguises its appearance to evade reactive security measures of all kinds, specifically signature-based antivirus solutions. But while each new instance in a malware "family" may appear different, its behavior can't be disguised. This paper covers the benefits of Symantec SONAR technology and how it takes advantage of this weakness to create a new, final line of defense against even sophisticated, highly obfuscated malware. Learn why IT organizations should carefully consider upgrading their IT security solutions to include SONAR protection.
