The New Threat Intelligence | How Automated Static Analysis Finds the Destructive Objects Existing Solutions Miss
Malware continues to increase in sophistication and routinely evades organizations' cyber defenses. It lurks inside networks, often for months, executing or waiting to execute attacks that can cause significant damage. Even though the industry has developed various technologies to bolster detection and response, the situation persists. The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Report results show that the discovery of successful attacks is still measured in months and containment in weeks, meaning average dwell time from compromise to containment remains intolerably high. Organizations must develop new strategies for combatting malware that evades their defenses.
New strategies for combatting advanced malware must move beyond existing detection approaches and focus on filling the defensive gaps that allow zero-day, polymorphic, and evasive malware attacks to succeed regularly. These gaps occur because existing malware analysis tools (anti-virus, EDR/EPP, email security, and dynamic analysis or 'sandboxes') are all either too narrow in focus, too slow, too reactive, too easily defeated, or they suffer.
