What are Advanced Malware Threats?

Malware (short for malicious software) refers to any type of software designed to cause harm to a device. From phishing to ransomware, email spoofing and BEC attacks, advanced malware threats continue to affect organizations worldwide. Cybercriminals are clever and continuously devising ways to circumvent your defenses. To protect your users, your data and your business, you need advanced malware protection that combats threats as they emerge as well as continually blocking known threats.

In parallel with our increased reliance on email, the threat landscape continues to evolve. Only advanced malware protection allows you protect against damaging disruptions and breaches. Advanced malware are malware strains engineered with advanced infection capabilities. It usually has a specific target and is most likely carried out against an organization or enterprise. Advanced malware can even target specific people in an organization.

Choosing an Advanced Malware Protection Provider

Protect against dangerous malware and advanced threats by finding an advanced malware protection solution that offers a powerful layer of defence against emerging threats. TitanHQ solutions are constantly updated, ensuring continued protection from existing and new attack vectors. A multi-layered protection is also recommended for protecting all fronts and preventing users from accessing malicious domains that could deliver malware.

Layered security stops a successful breach from a vulnerability in one defense and offers an onion design approach where each layer compounds with another to form a fully functioning, complete sphere of security. It protects the internal network and its data by surrounding it with several layers that an attacker must defeat, making security much more complex for a successful breach. 

Although our malware protection security solutions work independently, they work collaboratively to protect enterprise devices.  In the process of implementing these tools into a comprehensive strategy, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  Because vulnerabilities are constantly being exposed and new malware compositions being created, enterprises must incorporate multiple defense strategies. TitanHQ can help by providing advanced malware protection to block these attacks.

What Is a Zero-Day Threat?

A zero-day threat is an advanced malware that exploits previously unknown vulnerabilities within an organizations network.  Zero-day malware, refers to the fact the threat occurs before the vulnerability has been discovered. Hackers target zero-day vulnerabilities by writing malicious code to create zero-day exploits in order to carry out attacks. Examples of zero-day exploits include: seizing unauthorized control of a device, stealing data, corrupting files or espionage.  Essentially, a zero-day attack is a threat for which there is no defense in place. 

Zero-day attacks have become so prevalent that according to a report by the cybersecurity company, Cynet, half of the malware detected in 2019 was classified as zero-day threats. For hackers that don’t have the coding skills to take advantage of these vulnerabilities, zero-day exploits can readily be purchased on the open internet market.  Prices can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars. 

Once a vendor officially recognizes a zero-day vulnerability, it loses its zero-day status.  At that point, it is up to IT departments to download and install the newly released patches in order to secure and eliminate the vulnerability.
