Advanced malware targeting employee endpoints is a major threat to corporate intellectual property, regulated data and financial assets. Perimeter and traditional endpoint defenses are struggling to meet this emerging threat in the face of a changing IT landscape: desktop virtualization, remote access, BYOD and Cloud migration.
This whitepaper explains how advanced malware challenges traditional defenses to take advantage of the increased exposure of employee endpoints. It reviews the evolution of advanced targeted attacks, the various approaches used to address them and how organizations should think about their current and future malware defense strategy. The paper also details how advanced malware is challenging traditional defenses, what methods and approaches are emerging to meet this new threat and how organizations should extend their defenses to address workforce mobility, desktop virtualization and Cloud access.
