Attackers and malware are increasingly relying on a common set of tools to compromise identities and spread within a network. Tools like Mimikatz accompanied with common administrator tools like PsExec and WMI have become a standard part of an attacker’s arsenal to turn a single machine compromise into a full network breach. In this webinar we will take a look at why some of these tools are traditionally difficult to control, and introduce new countermeasures that let you fight back. In this webinar we will cover: - An analysis of recent malware and attacks and the tools they used to spread through the network. - A closer look at the underlying protocols supporting these tools, and the traditional challenges to controlling them. - Introduce new controls that allow organizations to control NTLM in real-time, block pass-the-hash techniques, and adaptively control the use of NTLM in the network. - How to gain visibility into PsExec, WMI, and RPC in general and how to create controls t

There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people? The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.

This paper describes how malware is evolving, how it functions, and how it can be identified, neutralized, and blocked by what we refer to as cloud generation malware analysis, which is available as a robust enterprise cloud service. Let’s start with how the blizzard of advanced malware alarms is affecting IT security teams.

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

The Modern Malware Review presents an analysis of 3 months of malware data derived from more than 1,000 live customer networks using WildFire™ (Palo Alto Networks™ feature for detecting and blocking new and unknown malware). The review focuses on malware samples that were initially undetected by industry-leading antivirus products.

Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.

This whitepaper explains that USB drives have been used to transport viruses and malware, both on purpose and accidentally. The paper explains that no manually handling of files, such as with USB drives, is unnecessary when you set up a secure network architecture using five zones of protection. You can transfer files to and from your network around the globe, and know the data and the network are secure, automatically scanning files to block dangerous data while allowing "clean" data into the network. The paper notes several reasons why it matters that data is secure while remaining accessible.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) have been central to network security discussions in the past few years, with many organizations implementing new solutions to protect themselves from this determined type of malware. Yet, cybercriminals continue to be effective in penetrating the network defenses of even the strongest security systems, including some very high-profile enterprises. One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs). While AETs are not a secret among the hacking community—where they are well known and have been in widespread use for several years—there are misunderstandings, misinterpretation, and ineffective safeguards in use by the security experts charged with blocking AETs.
