As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

Spyware is on the rise and has been the cause of many data breaches. Stopping it needs to be a strategic part of an organization's overall security plan. Reactive signature-based anti-virus and firewall technology is not a complete solution to prevention. Read this white paper to learn the top five behaviors associated with data theft and how advanced behavioral detection solutions is an effective technology for stopping spyware and can identify and prevent legitimate applications from being misused.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with: • 100% protection against known viruses • Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database • Extended protection for smartphones and tablets • Simplified web-based management

This white paper describes how new threats have stretched the capabilities of “fat client” security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses. It discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and large signature downloads with: • Cloud/client architecture • Journaling and rollback • Behavioral recognition of malware These improve performance and effectively address the new threat environment, which includes protecting against zero day threats.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

How did you choose your anti-malware solution? Did you put it through the same rigorous process as your other security solutions? Or, did you simply renew your current product licensing? Perhaps you went with something you had used at a previous job. Maybe you even went so far as to read a few product reviews and third-party test results or evaluations. But, did you test the anti-malware solution yourself? In this book, we explain how artificial intelligence (AI) can help your enterprise combat malware threats in a more preventative, proactive, and radically better way than legacy anti-malware products. We explain why you shouldn't just believe a vendor's marketing. Instead, you should test different solutions for yourself, just as you would with any other major security investment.

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.

Medium organizations around the globe are increasingly concerned about cyberthreats, and the rising number of incidents shared publicly certainly justifies their worries. In the first half of 2009, for example, McAfee Labs saw almost as much new malware as it did in all of 2008. At the same time, most organizations have frozen or cut their IT security budgets. Threats up, budgets down. This is what we call the "security paradox."

Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.

System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

Security threats are very real, and the stakes are higher than ever. Each day, tens of thousands of malware variants are created, with new classes of threats continually added and improved upon. Savvy attackers use polymorphic programs to alter malware into new form factors after each delivery. And all of this is exacerbated by the proliferation of mobile devices, cloud computing and social media—in fact, the intersection of these technologies provides fertile new ground for threats and malware. Today’s attacks are often not random, but targeted for maximum financial gain and impact. Rogue individuals and groups are constantly innovating new ways to attack organizations’ most valuable assets. As a result, traditional methods of dealing with threats are no longer enough. Organizations need more threat intelligence than ever before in order to effectively protect themselves.
