Organizations around the world are witnessing a rapid evolution in attack techniques, seeing advanced polymorphic malware and non-malware attacks taking center stage.
In fact, according to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Report, 53% of breaches today use no malware at all. Traditional antivirus solutions cannot detect or prevent these non-malware attacks.
Carbon Black’s end-of-year threat report dove into the security events of more than 1,000 customers supporting more than 2.5 million endpoints, and found the prevalence and likelihood of a non-malware attack to be overwhelming. We discovered that virtually every organization in the study was targeted by a non-malware attack in 2016. About one-third of those organizations found themselves likely to encounter at least one severe non-malware attack in the next 90 days.
This method of attack (also known as fileless, memory-based, or “living-off-the-land”) is especially effective given the current approaches to endpoint security seen in legacy AV and machine-learning AV. Modern attackers can easily get their hands on open-source penetration tools to breach systems without touching the file system of the target. This allows attackers to reliably bypass legacy endpoint protection solutions. Unfortunately, many emerging “next-gen” platforms are using approaches that fall victim to the same fundamental flaw – using point-in-time prevention techniques tuned to stop malware.
This realization has driven us to pioneer a new approach to AV; one that is prepared to tackle the new, emerging and yet-to-be-seen attacks head on.
Come join us at one of our upcoming Beyond-AV Tour Events to see how you can:
Stop The Most Attacks. Cb Defense’s breakthrough technology, “Streaming Prevention,” doesn’t just stop malware – it stops dangerous non-malware attacks too.
Take Back Control. Simple, visual dashboards help you hunt down attackers, understand their objectives and close security gaps quickly.
Each event culminates in a live-attack simulation where you get to don your own “black hat” and build a real-world attack that puts Carbon Black and other leading AV vendors to the test.
