Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere. Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.

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.

Enterprise’s are increasingly under threat from sophisticated attacks. In fact, research has found that threats dwell in a customer’s environment an average of 190 days1. These Advanced Persistent Threats use stealthy techniques to evade detection and bypass traditional security defenses. Once an advanced attack gains access to a customer environment the attacker has many tools to evade detection and begin to exploit valuable resources and data. Security teams face multiple challenges when attempting to detect and fully expose the extent of an advanced attack including manual searches through large and disparate data sources, lack of visibility into critical control points, alert fatigue from false positives, and difficulty identifying and fixing impacted endpoints.

"To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches. Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed. This white paper discusses how: - CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review - IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them - Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email - Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees.

The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defenses with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.

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.

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s
