With current increase in Malware & Phishing attacks, traditional security controls including Anti-Virus and Sandbox solutions have failed to detect and prevent such attacks. A multi-pronged approach is required to detect and stop such attacks. Use of traditional monitoring approaches will continue but with increase in its detection and prevention techniques.
The ability of a traditional A/V engine to detect Malware is dependent on its static signature database which is limited and varies from vendor to vendor. Consequently, having a platform that integrates and supports several A/V engines all working together gives tremendous ability in better malware detection rates.
Combining this with an ability to include dynamic detection engine using 3rd generation stealth sandboxing technology will help in detecting zero day attacks and AI based Malware which are now beginning to appear.
This combination of technology components can be further enhanced by wrapping a user entity behavior engine that monitors the end point, user activities including privilege access and network for any back end C2 communications. Any unauthorized communications internal to network segments can also be monitored and alerted by observing the normal and abnormal behavior of the users and the data traversing on the enterprise network.
FORCESPOT has put together a portfolio of complementary vendor technologies that tightly integrate with each other and offer the customers a compelling proposition to address and alleviate persistent threats that emanate all the time.
