Advanced Malware Protection
Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) is essential to protecting your organization in order to prevent the most advanced types of malware that have the capabilities to avoid existing security controls. Cyber criminals have now figured out that by using fileless malware current security tools can be circumvented, and networks can still be infected even with these tools in place.
Advanced Malware Protection is absolutely necessary in order to prevent ransomware attacks and other types of trojans that can steal information and exfiltrate data. Malware can sit in the environment for months going unnoticed even with Anti-Virus and IDS/IPS control systems. Advanced Malware Protection has the capability to actively prevent memory injections and stop ransomware encryption processes, which normal security tools cannot do. In order to verify that your environment is 100% secure, an AMP tool must be put into place, as this is the future of security tools.
What is Advanced Malware?
Advanced malware has the ability to circumvent normal security tools such as Anti-Virus, Intrusion Detection Systems and Intrusion Prevention Systems. It does this by utilizing methods that these security tools cannot detect, such as malicious macro-enabled Word documents and other types of fileless malware.
Anti-Virus and the security tools above use file scanning, heuristic and hash-based detection methods in order to prevent malware from executing. Advanced malware doesn’t come in via file downloads. Advanced malware injects into memory in order to obfuscate itself throughout the system and maintain persistence. Advanced malware utilizes methods that are deemed normal activity that would be performed by users on a regular basis.
