Uncover the riskiest 1% of threats you’ve been missing. In hours. Not days or months. Nearly all endpoint security solutions claim to block 99% of malware. But what about the 1% of threats they miss? The most dangerous 1% of threats will wreak havoc on your network. If you rely solely on traditional point-in-time technologies, such as antivirus, those threats can go undetected for 200 days on average. For months on end, they can be creeping in and moving laterally across your network causing damage through stealthy malware campaigns without you even knowing it—until it’s too late.

Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.

Mimecast has detected and blocked a dangerous new campaign that uses social engineering and advanced sandbox evasion techniques to deliver stealthy malware.
This Email Security Advisory from Mimecast offers:

Today’s anti-malware solutions running as applications above the operating system are no match for the stealth techniques used by today’s malware developers. Hardware-assisted security products take advantage of a “deeper” security footprint.
Traditional antivirus or intrusion prevention systems are no match for the new breed of attacks; enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.
Take the stealth, creativity and patience of Stuxnet, the commercialism, wide
distribution and easy-to-use toolkits of Zeus, and you understand the potency of today’s malware. Start planning now to protect your intellectual property and other assets.
The most menacing type of cyberattack is invisible. The risk to enterprises is real as evidenced by recent high-profile attacks. Organizations need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.
Smart and malicious advanced malware is targeted stealthy, evasive, and adaptive. Sandboxing and other stand-alone products can't do the job on their own. This editorial brief explains why you need an arsenal of layered, integrated defenses to protect against these sophisticated threats.
