Network anomaly detection: The essential antimalware tool
Traditional perimeter defenses are no longer enough; network anomaly detection tools are now essential in the battle against advanced malware. Read Now
As if the emergence of Stuxnet, Flame and Duqu weren't enough, the recent discovery of Regin makes it clear that advanced attacks -- specifically, those launched by nation-states -- are using malware that goes undetected inside a network for months, or sometimes years. The problem is only getting worse, and our government isn't coming to the rescue.
In this Security School, Peter Sullivan explores why enterprises are failing to detect Regin-style advanced threats, and discusses how to realign people, processes and technology to reduce the risk by giving enterprises a fighting chance. The key, he says, is network anomaly detection.

1New malware threats need advanced defenses
In this presentation Peter Sullivan explains how detecting advanced malware is critical to maintaining enterprise network security.
2Advanced malware defenses require a new focus
Advanced malware demands a focus now on the network interior, not just the perimeter. Here's why.
