Attackers must complete a certain sequence of events to successfully accomplish their objectives, whether stealing information or running ransomware. Nearly every attack relies on compromising an endpoint, and although most organizations have deployed endpoint protection, infections are still common. By combining multiple methods of prevention, Traps stands apart in its ability to protect endpoints. Traps blocks security breaches and successful ransomware attacks that leverage malware and exploits, known or unknown, before they can compromise Windows®, macOS® or Linux endpoints, such as laptops, desktops, servers, virtual machines or cloud workloads.

Traps is unique in the breadth and depth of its protections capabilities. Which include:

  • Blocking malware, exploits, and ransomware before they can compromise endpoints
  • Providing protection while endpoints are online and offline, on network and off
  • Coordinating enforcement with network and cloud security to prevent successful attacks

Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection Technology Overview

Most organizations deploy a number of security products to protect their endpoints, including one or more traditional antivirus solutions. Nevertheless, cyber breaches continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication. Faced with the rapidly changing threat landscape, current endpoint security solutions and antivirus can no longer prevent security breaches on the endpoint. Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection replaces traditional antivirus with a unique combination of the most effective, purpose-built, malware and exploit prevention methods that pre-emptively block known and unknown threats from compromising a system.

SilverTerrier: The Rise of Nigerian Business Email Compromise

Through our analysis, it remains clear that Nigerian cyber actors will continue to expand their attacks in terms of size, scope and capabilities. According to law enforcement organizations, the exposed losses to businesses worldwide from these threat actors are now estimated to be more than US$3 billion. Given the substantial risk these actors pose, we present techniques to enable large-scale attribution efforts to combat this threat. In doing so, we demonstrate a repeatable and sustainable process to identify SilverTerrier infrastructure and put preventive measures in place prior to the first samples of malware reaching our security products.
