Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads. Read this paper to learn more about exploits and how to stop them. We’ll explore how exploits work, the exploit industry overall, what makes a good exploit in the eyes of the cybercriminals, and also how anti-exploit technology is a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organization against advanced and unknown threats.

Every 14 seconds. That’s how often analysts predict ransomware will attack a business this year. Despite the best efforts to thwart ransomware attacks, cyber criminals are innovative, and they continue to create new malware. This means more sophisticated and targeted ransomware attacks are coming—all with the same goal: Disrupt business operations in the hopes victims will pay to restore order. No industry is immune. And because enterprises are now even more attractive targets than consumers, your organization must proactively prepare for when, not if, cyber criminals come for your data.

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with: • 100% protection against known viruses • Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database • Extended protection for smartphones and tablets • Simplified web-based management

The primary approaches used to fight advanced threats over the past several years simply aren’t effective. Traditional methods such as user education, vulnerability patching, and malware detection have failed to protect enterprises against the current threat landscape. Attackers continuously develop sophisticated tactics and evasion techniques to bypass the latest protection methods, requiring the security industry to find a different approach to malware protection. Trusteer has pioneered a new cybercrime prevention approach that provides unparalleled protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, information-stealing malware.

Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s
