Web Security

What Attacks Are You Not Seeing?

Why Web Security?

With traditional security, intelligence is derived from static reputation scores issued after threats have been detected.  Relying solely on hardware or appliance processing power limits what you can accomplish, and if you’re using a number of different security products from multiple vendors, you’re left to reconcile, synthesize, and prioritize alerts from what are likely siloed systems.

Attacks are becoming more sophisticated and Fortune 50 enterprises and small businesses are turning to cloud-delivered security services to shore up those defenses to get in front of attacks.

Monitoring DNS requests can be an easy way to reduce blind spots and provide better accuracy and detection of compromised systems, improving network protection.

The Challenge

Cybersecurity teams and tools are falling behind

As the network changes, so does attack methodology. The speed and adaptability with which attackers spin up attack infrastructure creates new challenges for identifying and blocking malicious traffic for all businesses across all industries, including:

  • Deceptive email spear-phishing techniques that enable attackers to bypass conventional defenses and install ransomware and malicious code.
  • One-off malware packages that can’t be readily detected using signature-based solutions – regardless of how quickly those signature and profiles are updated.
  • Low and slow attacks that evade network-based defenses and allow attackers to infiltrate infrastructure and take data undetected over extended periods of time.
  • Malware kits and malware-as-a-service resources that increase threat volume by empowering bad actors and criminal organizations to engage in cyberattacks like malicious crypto mining, despite their lack of technical skills.

The Solution

New defenses for new threats

Cybercriminals know that businesses are working overtime to secure endpoints and end users against threats, and they’re working just as hard to find new gaps to exploit.

Relying on legacy defenses that focus on signature-based threats is no longer enough.   Attacks are becoming more sophisticated and Fortune 50 enterprises and small business are turning to cloud-delivered security services to shore up those defenses to get in front of attacks.
