Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) continue to evade organizations’ standard defenses, as recently witnessed with attacks on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and US Federal Reserve. But, the real question is, why are they so hard to detect? The short answer – because they are carefully customized to your organization with:

  • In-depth knowledge of your employees
  • Malware engineered and tested to evade your standard security defenses
  • Methods crafted to take advantage of your apps and environment
  • Human interaction that guides the attack as it moves within your network
  • A target specifically aimed at your data and intellectual property
