Security professionals now face much more sophisticated adversaries and tactics. This new class of attackers is no longer interested in quick smash and grab operations, rather they prefer taking a slow and methodical approach to penetrate devices within an organisation’s network. Once on the inside, the attackers focus on maintaining a persistent foothold and exfiltrating critical customer data and intellectual property. Read more about the today’s security reality.
Today’s sophisticated and targeted malware attacks can take any organization by surprise. Even the best laid incident response plans tend to be based on an outdated picture of the threat landscape and singularly focused defenses. Read this brief and learn four keys to enhance your advanced malware defense and response.
Enterprise Stragety Group brief on Advanced Malware Protection Must Extend to Incident Detection and Response
This white paper describes the five key benefits of application control and how to acheive them.
Research report with Securosis to understand the processes and costs of dealing with advanced malware.
This Sourcefire FireSIGHT White Paper discusses why Context-Aware and Adaptive Security is the key to effective protection today.
Malware creates backdoors into an organization’s networks, and as the challenges to fighting malware continue to grow, those with deep knowledge of the industry understand that malware defense is clearly a “big data” problem.
ESG Brief, January 2012, by Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst. Enterprise Strategy Group research indicates that many enterprise organizations have been targeted by and are vulnerable to Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). Learn of ESG's research findings, the anatomy of an APT, key capabilities of advanced malware protection systems, and how Sourcefire's FireAMP product delivers the full solution.
Current research suggests as much as 75% of new viruses are seen on a single endpoint and only about 40% of new Malware even gets detected. It’s not a question of 'if' your network will be attacked with advanced malware, it’s a question of 'when' it will happen and how you will respond. Learn of the five new laws of anti-malware and you can protect your networks form the newly-evolving threat landscape.
Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) offers a logical and essential progression of capabilities needed to protect networks from emerging threats. Pioneered by Sourcefire, and now endorsed by Gartner, the NGIPS builds on typical IPS solutions by providing contextual awareness—about network activity, systems and applications, people, and more—to promptly assess threats, ensure a consistent and appropriate response, and reduce an organization’s security expenditures.
By incorporating real-time network and user intelligence, an IPS can adapt to dynamically changing networks and threats. This helps to automate many of the cumbersome tasks that consume human effort, including IPS tuning, impact assessment and remediation helping to improve security, reduce risk, and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Read how to derive more value from an IPS using measurements developed by the SANS Analysts team.
Many network security vendors boast about their response times to the release of vulnerabilities—for instance, the monthly “Microsoft Tuesday”—when Microsoft announces many vulnerabilities and releases patches to end users. The Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team™ (VRT) is the only network security research group that provides protection that verifiably defends against all possible attacks, before particular methods of attack are known, and without creating false positives or false negatives. The white paper details how Snort’s open rules give customers advantages they cannot get from other network security products.
Residing at the core of the threat prevention capabilities of Sourcefire Intrusion Sensors, Snort® threat detection and prevention components work together to reassemble traffic, prevent evasions, detect threats, and output information about the threats without creating false positives or missing legitimate threats.
