Palo Alto Networks Advanced Endpoint Protection represents a complete paradigm shift from identification to pure prevention. Providing comprehensive exploit and malware prevention that is not designed to identify; instead, it prevents an attack before the malware can be successful.
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.
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.
Palo Alto Networks advanced endpoint protect Traps achieved the rating of “Recommend” in the 2018 NSS Labs Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test. This test aims to determine how effectively the AEP product can protect against a threat, regardless of the infection vector or method of obfuscation. The AEP test evaluated several vendors ability to detect, prevent, continuously monitor and take action against malware, exploits, evasions and blended threats.
