Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.

For many in the business world, 24/7 access to email is routine, and often required. Instant, ubiquitous and inexpensive communication gives us quick access to others in our business and personal lives, but gives criminals easy and direct access to us as well.

"To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches. Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed. This white paper discusses how: - CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review - IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them - Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email - Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees.

Cybercriminals are stepping up their attacks on financial institutions by gaining control of customer devices with highly advanced man-in-the-browser (MitB) malware and spear phishing attacks. They then conduct real-time credential theft and take over accounts.

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.
