Stepping up the battle against advanced threat

Length:  10 pages

The primary approaches used to fight cybercrime over the past several years simply are not effective. Despite losing some of these battles, we can still win the war. However, a new approach is needed. IBM® Security Trusteer Apex Advanced Malware Protection introduces a new preemptive solution for cybercrime prevention, helping to provide exceptional protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, informationstealing malware, which helps to enable targeted attacks. Trusteer Apex helps to protect user endpoints without disrupting the end users. Easy deployment and minimal management overhead reduces the workload for IT Security staff.

In this paper we will examine the different ways cybercriminals target end users, and the main reasons why enterprises have failed to protect against advanced threats and prevent endpoint compromise. We will introduce a new preemptive approach that redefines endpoint protection with multi-layered security controls that are integrated into a single software agent. The integrated security layers are designed to break the threat lifecycle in multiple phases – from the exploitation of a vulnerability, to the malware download and data exfiltration, and prevent cybercriminals from gaining a foothold in the enterprise network.
