Comprehensive Advanced Threat Defense

The hot topic in the information security industry these days is "Advanced Threat Defense" (ATD). There are many definitions, and plenty of marketing hype and spin on the topic, but it's the science - and the art - of defending yourself against sophisticated, persistent adversaries who can get past (or have already gotten past) your security defenses.
We like to define advanced threat defense in terms of the adversary rather than the attack technique used to remind ourselves that what we are really up against is a person or, more likely, a group of people who are specifically targeting your organization, and will use whatever attack vectors and techniques necessary to achieve their objectives.
This paper describes a comprehensive, network-­based approach to Advanced Threat Defense.

Cybersecurity for Dummies eBook

APTs (advanced persistent threats) have changed the world of enterprise security and how networks and organizations are attacked. These threats, and the cyber-criminals behind them, are experts at remaining hidden from traditional security while exhibiting an intelligence, resiliency, and patience that has never been seen before.

Controlling these threats requires multiple security disciplines working together in context. While no single solution will solve the problem of advanced threats on its own, next-generation security provides the unique visibility and control of, and the true integration of, threat-prevention disciplines needed to find and stop these threats - both known and unknown.
