A malware attack can be devastating to your company. The internet is full of horror stories about promising businesses getting forced to pay a small fortune following a ransomware attack.
Modern malware programs are exceptionally sophisticated. Your SOC team mostly ends up playing cat-and-mouse with the malware, which ends up becoming a losing battle.
The elusive malware
Some malware can remain undetected for ages, stealing your data, and damaging your systems. It can communicate with its Command & Control center (C&C) to conduct new attacks after seeping into your organizational ecosystem. Malware programs can hit you in the blind spot when you least expect it. By communicating with its C&C, it can turn on and off and camouflage its presence when needed.
Anti-Malware programs aren't enough
There is no denying the effectiveness of some anti-malware programs. But studies show they struggle to cope with constant evolution.
And once the coast is clear, an attacker can signal a malware program to:
- Drop a potent payload into your system
- Copy itself into the other assets and slowly take over your entire network
Periodic and system-intensive scans are passe. Having an always-on system detecting potential malware traffic is exponentially more effective. This is where Netenrich comes in.
The Netenrich Solution
Netenrich receives preliminary data from the different network devices and data points within your ecosystem. When we detect a malicious program in your incoming traffic, we pull in data from our threat intelligence to learn about potential malware and its potency.
The moment we detect something critical, our analysts enrich data with critical context. We then provide steps for remediation that correspond to the extent of potential damage to your system.
For example, malware may have just downloaded files from your organization without depositing a payload. The platform will provide you with context and remediation recommendations to secure your system.
