The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up. Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.

The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection. Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the

Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.
