Advanced Persistent Threats: Detection, Protection and Prevention

Advanced Persistent Threats: Detection, Protection and Prevention

Cover

The threat landscape is changing, or is it?

Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber-attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones.

Download this paper to get an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and how Sophos complete security solution can protect your network, servers and end user clients.
