Traditional cybersecurity approaches suffer from two glaring weaknesses. First, they rely on the digital signatures of known malware in order to identify threats. This approach leaves systems vulnerable to new and non-catalogued malware. Second, they are reactive in nature, ascribing to the “it’s not a matter of if, but when” mentality and often responding to the damage caused by zero-day threats only after they execute. Guarding against known threats is important but in the modern threat, landscape organizations must also address the over 350,000 new variants of malware created every day.
Many cybersecurity companies attempt to stop evolving threats by building new layers of security on top of existing solutions. This approach often creates additional noise within the security stack, making it harder for analysts to quickly identify and respond to threats. The benefits of new security layers are quickly offset by their demand for more system resources and alert fatigue.View whitepaper
The news headlines are replete with stories of devastating data breaches,
compromising the personal and professional data of millions. Cyber attackers
spare no industry, infiltrating the assets of even the most sophisticated
technology adopters, in turn impacting their executives, employees, and
perhaps worst of all — customers and users.
The answer lies not in changing the motives of bad actors, but rather,
in the advanced techniques that help them evade traditional methods
of system protection. Traditional AV solutions, which adopt a ...
The Cylance 2017 Threat Report offers valuable analysis on the current state of cybersecurity. The information provided in the report is unavailable anywhere else. This Cylance® study includes research and information drawn from internal data and feedback provided by Cylance customers. The report offers considerable insights into recent threat trends and related security issues.
Some key findings of this report merit further discussion. These conversations represent an opportunity to dig deeper into the implications of current security stra ...
By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping
the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any
time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall
software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment
and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version
is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis. ...
Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was developed jointly to provide additive testing to the commodity Anti-Virus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST.
CylancePROTECT® was tested against 5 competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec and Trend Micro. The test was performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection ...
