From sophisticated new forms of malware to nation-state sponsored attacks and the advanced persistent threat, cybersecurity incidents have evolved at a rapid pace and are taking down entire networks, successfully stealing sensitive data and costing organizations millions to remediate.
In this white paper this report, you'll receive a comprehensive overview of survey results and expert analysis on:
The top security threats for global organizations in 2013;
The largest gaps in organization's detection and response to threats;
How these gaps will be filled in the coming year - new staff, tools or services;
What organizations must do to stay ahead of these advanced threats.

Over the past three years, ransomware has jumped into the spotlight of the cyber threat landscape. Kaspersky Lab reports that in 2015, its solutions detected ransomware on more than 50,000 computers in corporate networks—double the figure for 2014. Even at this rate of detection, Kaspersky admits that the real number of incidents is several times higher than what has been detected and reported.1 In just the first quarter of 2016, $209 million was paid out to cyber criminals using ransomware. The FBI estimates that losses to be incurred in 2016 due to ransomware will top $1 billion.2 Once again, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
SIEM (security information and event management) software offers a lot of promise, but legacy SIEMs simply can't keep up with the rate and sophistication of today's cyberattacks. Organizations today require access to analytics-driven SIEMs that combine a big data platform that is optimized for machine data with advanced analytics, threat detection, monitoring tools, incident response tools and multiple forms of threat intelligence.

We are pleased to present the findings of The State of Malware Detection & Prevention sponsored by Cyphort. The study reveals the difficulty in preventing and detecting malware and advanced threats. The IT function also seems to lack the information and intelligence necessary to update senior executives on cybersecurity risks. We surveyed 597 IT and IT security practitioners in the U.S. who have responsibility for directing cybersecurity activities and/or investments within their organization. All respondents have a network-based malware detection tool or are familiar with this type of tool.

Whether they work for an up-and-coming startup or an industry giant, security response teams are under siege as never before. Today's cyber attacks are sophisticated, relentless, and devastating, costing U.S. businesses $8.9 million a year each on average. Attacking in multiple stages across multiple vectors, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated attacks easily evade signature-based detection and other traditional defenses.
Thiswhite paper describes:
The 10 most common mistakes, strategic and technical, that incident response teams make;
The effect of these mistakes and how to avoid them with a well-defined incident response plan.
Analysis of ESET's ThreatSense.Net®, a sophisticated malware reporting and tracking system, shows that the highest number of detections this month, with almost 9.90%, was the Win32/Conficker class of threat.
Organizations looking for more intelligence and automation within their security defenses should include endpoint detection and response solutions to thwart new threats and protect endpoint-accessible assets.

In the fast moving web environment, where hackers frequently
change their tactics, a defense-in-depth strategy of deploying the
ProxySG in conjunction with an NGFW is essential for providing
optimal protection. The ProxySG is engineered to withstand
evasion techniques, making it a perfect complement to your NGFW. Its leading web-proxy technology identifies and blocks malicious web content, and its open architecture allows integration with best-of-breed products for an enhanced security posture.
These top 10 advantages represent just a few of the reasons why
SWG and NGFW technologies are complementary in nature and
why enterprises should implement them together for a layered
defense against advanced attacks and targeted threats.
In today’s threat landscape, attackers use a wide range of sophisticated methods to infiltrate vulnerable systems. The key to minimizing the impact of an attack is to detect threats early, effectively and over a long period of time. In any threat detection effort, organizations must focus on visibility, assessment of risk, and potential impact to the business.

To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics.
As the threat landscape evolves, organizations have accepted the fact that they have to take a more proactive detection approach to advanced threats rather than relying on traditional defenses. As a result, customers have turned to detection and response tools that allow for proactive “hunting” for Indicators of Attack (IoA) and reactive “sweeping” for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Once found, those tools are required to automatically respond to attacks or to at least provide for an action from the Incident Response (IR) staff. Unfortunately, due to the number and complexity of both these attacks and the detection/response tools, organizations struggle to hire enough qualified staff and stay on top of the discovered threats. This is compounded by a worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage. Managed detection and response (XDR) provides advanced threat hunting, detection, and response as a service to organizations that seek assistance for their own IR staff, or for those who wish to o
In today’s dynamic network environment, point-in-time solutions lack the visibility and control you need to implement an effective security policy that will accelerate threat detection and response. And disparate solutions only add to capital and operating costs and administrative complexity.
Modern malware now masks itself to evade detection. It hides by piggybacking or misusing legitimate applications. With state-of-the-art threat detection and containment tools from Intel Security, organizations can unmask the most sophisticated hidden threats.
The 2016 ACFE Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse analyzed 2,410 occupational fraud cases that caused a total loss of more than $6.3 billion.8 Victim organizations that lacked anti-fraud controls suffered double the amount of median losses.
SAS’ unique, hybrid approach to insider threat deterrence – which combines traditional detection methods and investigative methodologies with behavioral analysis – enables complete, continuous monitoring. As a result, government agencies and companies can take pre-emptive action before damaging incidents occur. Equally important, SAS solutions are powerful yet simple to use, reducing the need to hire a cadre of high-end data modelers and analytics specialists. Automation of data integration and analytics processing makes it easy to deploy into daily operations.

A leading retailer with stores worldwide was seeking a more innovative tool to protect customer privacy and intellectual property. PCI compliance mandated log collection, but a vast number of different tools generated an overwhelming amount of log data, making it difficult for the small security team to review it effectively. The solution the company chose had to fit into a diverse network, provide intelligent reporting and offer a centralized management console.
