Securing networks against sophisticated attacks is a continuous cat-and-mouse game where the only rule is that there are no rules! Yet many of the solutions to securing networks today are created around assumptions on how attacks are structured in strictly-defined, deterministic approaches. We rely on firewall port-based analysis, anti-virus, malware detection and IDS/IPS pattern-based analysis to protect against attacks, but these approaches can only prevent known threats.
The ever ingenious hacker is constantly looking for new ways to circumvent these static defenses with Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), insider threats and multi-faceted attacks that use a combination of DDoS, malware and zero-day attacks to breach defenses. How can these threats be detected and prevented in real-time?
