Cybercriminals have been upping their game this year; the use of file-less attacks with macros and PowerShell scripts to evade preventive defenses and sandboxes mean that they are getting better than ever at using phishing, social engineering and drive-by techniques to gain initial footholds in private domains – and once they arrive, they are often avoiding detection for extended periods of time. Between April and July 2018, Fidelis interviewed over 580 security professionals from around the globe to understand how they are shifting their detection strategies and how confident organizations are in their ability to not only prevent targeted attacks – but root out threats that have by-passed traditional preventive defenses.

This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and even routers doing deep packet inspection. In this book you’ll find out all about AETs, and get useful pointers and advice to help you secure your organization. If you’re working in government, the military, banking, industry, e-commerce or with other critical infrastructures, read this book to find out what you’re up against and how to better protect against advanced evasions.

"Multi-stage attacks are an increasingly popular approach used by cybercriminals. By sending a malicious attachment in a phishing email that contains an embedded URL, with no malevolent code, attackers can evade existing security solutions, like sandboxes and AV. How do you prevent these attacks before they happen? Download this white paper to find out: *How Menlo Security Labs recently isolated a multi-stage document attack *What tools, techniques and procedures ( TTPs ) are attackers using to infect victims’ devices *How Isolation can foil the attack before it can even start "

Security is everyone’s job today, from consumers, to system administrators, to executives. If you are doing business, you need to elevate the priority of security across your organization and data center. Over the years, cybercriminals have gotten more advanced and better funded. They are entire teams of highly trained hackers, and they have built it into a very profitable business. Cybercrime is big business. In many cases, states have built their own cyberattack teams. These teams are no less important to their state strategies than their army or navy. And just like these cyber-attack teams are prepared to attack anyone, you too must be prepared to defend against anyone. Whether you know it or not, you are in a cyber war. You need to be prepared.

Yes, your company is a ripe target for fraud - but it doesn't have to be. Cybercriminals love small to medium businesses, since they have more money in their bank accounts than individuals, but often lack the sophisticated technology and vigilant processes of larger organizations. Gartner estimates that more than 10 percent of small businesses have had funds stolen from their bank accounts.

Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands. No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer. The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.
