Protection from APT attacks and zero-day malware

Protection from APT attacks and zero-day malware

IT business is a dynamic and fast-growing industry entailing a similarly fast-growing various new threats and malware jeopardizing its security. Nowadays, the nature of such threats is such they are highly sophisticated, targeted more to individuals and less to masses, multi-vector and multi-phase and hidden. The word here is about zero-day and ATP attacks. Traditional solutions such as firewall, IPS and desktop antivirus solutions cannot longer respond to the need for fast and timely disclosure of such threats as their security mechanism is signature-based. In other words such solutions compare potentially compromising contents with a base of known threats and thus they are unable to recognize a newly created threat as they still do not possess its signature. In this way, threats pass unnoticed into the network, infect the clients’ computers and/or servers and start their adverse activities. Months may pass until their presence is discovered, which may cause irreparable damages to an enterprise.

CS Computer Systems recognized the need for solutions which would be able to respond to such issues. These are technologies not dependent on signatures but instead based on static decomposition of the traffic contents and dynamic sandboxing analysis of its behavior. In this way, it is possible to timely recognize and stop a threat for the security of network and computers and protect the operations from any losses arising from there.
