Attackers are constantly reusing, modifying or creating entirely new malware, resulting in large volumes of malware targeting organizations. This also enables attackers to focus on the development of more highly evasive threats, built to detect malware analysis environments and halt malicious activity until they are no longer under analysis. 

In the meantime, organizations struggle both to keep up with the large volume of malware and to identify and prevent sophisticated attacks.

It is essential to rethink the tactics used to detect this modern type of malware. This paper outlines three key things security tools must do to aid in identifying and preventing evasive threats and modern malware.
