Knock advanced malware out cold with network anomaly detection

The ability to detect network anomalies is now essential in the battle against advanced malware. In this Security School, expert Peter Sullivan explains why, and how to go about employing anomaly-detecting tools.


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.
