Advanced Attacks Require Federal Agencies to Reimagine IT Security
The threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies than it is today. Governments face a torrent of cyber-attacks that is growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
- The malware "kill-chain" model used in today's advanced attacks;
- What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
- A reimagined approach to IT security.
