The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.

With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.

The malware industry supplies all the components cybercriminals need to easily perpetrate malware-driven financial fraud and data theft. In today’s virtual world, the scope of organizations vulnerable to malware-driven cybercrime is quite broad. In addition to banks and credit unions that are subject to online banking fraud, financial fraud can be perpetrated on insurance companies, payment services, large e-commerce companies, airlines and many others.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

How did you choose your anti-malware solution? Did you put it through the same rigorous process as your other security solutions? Or, did you simply renew your current product licensing? Perhaps you went with something you had used at a previous job. Maybe you even went so far as to read a few product reviews and third-party test results or evaluations. But, did you test the anti-malware solution yourself? In this book, we explain how artificial intelligence (AI) can help your enterprise combat malware threats in a more preventative, proactive, and radically better way than legacy anti-malware products. We explain why you shouldn't just believe a vendor's marketing. Instead, you should test different solutions for yourself, just as you would with any other major security investment.

Matthew Coy, Safelite’s Vice President of Information Technology, is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s IT infrastructure, including selecting, administering, and supporting technology products. The company handles personally identifiable information, including credit card information and insurance data collected from several sources, and must comply with insurance industry regulations and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Safelite is the target of constant external attacks. The organization experienced ongoing security issues stemming from infected software, drivebys and other malicious downloads. According to Matthew, “A lot of malware and email viruses were making it through the environment, all bypassing our email security and AV.” Not only were the security controls ineffective, the previous AV platform required nearly 150 hours per week to manage. Matthew knew Safelite needed to make a change, and fast. Having worked with Cylance® at two previous companies, he was confident CylancePROTECT® could significantly improve Safelite’s endpoint security. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

Medium organizations around the globe are increasingly concerned about cyberthreats, and the rising number of incidents shared publicly certainly justifies their worries. In the first half of 2009, for example, McAfee Labs saw almost as much new malware as it did in all of 2008. At the same time, most organizations have frozen or cut their IT security budgets. Threats up, budgets down. This is what we call the "security paradox."
