Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere.
Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.
As damaging breaches continue to occur, more organizations are considering endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions to address the incidents that aren't being handled adequately by their existing defenses. However, EDR solutions come in a wide variety of implementations and can vary significantly in scope and efficacy — choosing the best solution can be challenging.
This white paper, “Endpoint Detection and Response: Automatic Protection Against Advanced Threats,” explains the importance of EDR, and describes how various approaches to EDR differ, providing guidance that can help you choose the product that's right for your organization.

What makes EDR such a valuable addition to an organization's security arsenal and why finding the right approach is critical

Finding out your organization has been breached can be devastating news — knowing how to deal with an intruder that’s broken through your cyber defenses can be even more challenging.
This white paper, “You’ve Been Breached — Now What? How to Respond to a Worst-Case Scenario,” offers practical steps IT and security professionals should take after a cyberattack occurs. You’ll receive guidance for both short-term and long-term strategies to help minimize damage, protect sensitive assets and preserve forensic evidence that can help during the investigation and remediation process. This paper also includes recommendations for strengthening your organization’s defenses against a future breach. They are based on decades of experience from CrowdStrike® incident responders who work on the front lines fighting cyberthreat actors every day.

Where to invest next: Identifying the people, processes and technology you need for an effective cybersecurity strategy
Building your organization’s cybersecurity maturity doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and thought to adequately assess all the factors that go into creating and implementing an effective security strategy, particularly what steps to take after you’ve made an initial investment in security.
This white paper, “Where to Invest Next: Guidance for Maturing Your Cyber Defenses,” offers practical advice on achieving the level of cyber defense maturity that’s right for your organization. Learn why developing a security program that takes into account your risk level and the current state of your security posture is critical. You’ll also see why ensuring that everyone in the organization, from the leadership to the rank-and-file, is working toward the goal of cyber maturity is crucial to your success.

This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs.

• How CrowdStrike’s Falcon OverWatch and professional services teams discovered and attributed the DNC intrusion to nation-state threat actors FANCY BEAR and COZY BEAR
• The gaps in security processes and planning that your organization can address now to stop the next breach
• The specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) a range of nation-state and eCrime adversaries used to penetrate their victims’ defenses, and how they attempted to cover their tracks
In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.
The headlines are ablaze with the latest stories of cyberattacks and data breaches. New malware and viruses are revealed nearly every day. The modern cyberthreat evolves on a daily basis, always seeming to stay one step ahead of our most capable defenses. Every time there is a cyberattack, government agencies gather massive amounts of data. To keep pace with the continuously evolving landscape of cyberthreats, agencies are increasingly turning toward applying advanced data analytics to look at attack data and try to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of the attacks. Applying modern data analytics can help derive some defensive value from the data gathered in the aftermath of an attack, and ideally avert or mitigate the damage from any future attacks.

The ever-changing environment has offered fraudsters some tactical advantages to probe for holes in the defenses of financial services companies. Conventional approaches to fraud detection and remediation remain effective to a point, but conventional tools cannot effectively and economically process what is known as big data.
In this brief, we’ll take a look at common use cases that show how integration between McAfee Advanced Threat Defense and other security controls from McAfee, a part of Intel Security, create a multipronged strategy designed to make enterprise defenses both more effective in detecting previously unknown malware and globally responsive when a new attack occurs.
Defensive weak spots are just waiting to be found and exploited by persistent cyber attackers. But with cyber threat analysis, you quickly identify, disrupt and mitigate breaches by uncovering critical insights unseen by traditional defenses.
Learn how cyber threat intelligence (CTI) helps you bolster defenses, hunt down adversaries,investigate incidents and make better security decisions.
While once considered a “nice to have”, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now widely considered an essential weapon against breaches. A recent study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 72 percent of organizations plan to increase CTI spending — further validation of its important role in your security strategy. Yet, because threat intelligence comes in many shapes and forms, it is often misunderstood.
This white paper, “Threat Intelligence, Cybersecurity’s Best Kept Secret,” offers in-depth coverage of CTI, including the different categories of threat intelligence and use cases that demonstrate CTI’s effectiveness in thwarting today’s most dangerous and sophisticated attackers. You’ll also learn how the right CTI can empower better security and executive decisions, while dramatically improving your organization's security pos
