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.
You’re aware of the threats of malware to your business but what about the ever-changing ground rules? Cybercriminals today are launching attacks against businesses by copying sophisticated malware and techniques used to target governments and high-profile organizations.
Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs, making it an important element in your IT department’s efforts to do more with less. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk.

In today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world more than a few IT
managers have lost sleep over the thought of an employee device, loaded
with sensitive company data, falling into the wrong hands. Lookout
commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a national survey of IT
managers in the Fall of 2013 that uncovered substantial security concerns
related to mobile devices, especially around malware and data loss.
Ultimately, the survey revealed that IT managers do not believe existing
security solutions can adequately address the mobile security challenges
faced by businesses today.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads.
Read this paper to learn more about exploits and how to stop them. We’ll explore how exploits work, the exploit industry overall, what makes a good exploit in the eyes of the cybercriminals, and also how anti-exploit technology is a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organization against advanced and unknown threats.

Security has always been a fast-paced field, but lately the pace has been accelerating. Malware is rapidly evolving. The ways payloads are being delivered and deployed are changing, too. New attack tools and exploit techniques are appearing more regularly. It’s taking less time for them to gain widespread adoption. For all of those reasons, we thought it would be valuable to share additional insight into the threatscape we shared in the 2018 Critical Watch Report.
