Uncover SSL-Encrypted Attacks in Government Networks

A comprehensive security strategy for federal and other government agencies requires in-depth analysis of encrypted traffic to detect and prevent hidden attacks and data leakage. As more Internet traffic is encrypted, increasing numbers of attackers, including state-sponsored actors, are using this technology to hide malware, and botnet-based command and control traffic to exfiltrate data and escalate the likelihood of successful attacks. Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provides a combination of advanced capabilities to prevent undesired applications and malicious content, including the decryption and scrutinization of encrypted communications, along with Hardware Security Module (HSM) support for enhanced performance and security of certificate and key management.

Endpoint Security Takes Center Stage

Forrester conducted a survey of 125 organizations to determine the current challenges and trends in endpoint security. The survey determined that organizations have a need for zero-day exploit and unknown malware prevention, and a desire for endpoint solutions that integrate with network and cloud components. Furthermore, organizations use products that provide varying prevention capabilities on the endpoint. This paper compares and contrasts these approaches to endpoint protection.

The Advanced Attack Challenge: Creating a Government Private Threat Intelligence Cloud

One of the most prominent and advanced threats to government networks is advanced delivery and execution of zero-day malware. The adversary effectively utilizes technology and has enhanced their ability to create and deliver highly effective unknown or zero-day malware through advanced persistent threats (APTs). To improve defense and resilience, governments are creating their own private threat intelligence clouds based on Palo Alto Networks WildFire™. This architecture enables immediate analysis of the unknown threats and swiftly pushes prevention to all of the physical and virtual Palo Alto Networks platforms from data center to endpoint within the network. By employing Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ Advanced Endpoint Protection as a compensating control, businesses can keep Windows Server 2003 systems compliant and secure, even after EOS.

Top 10 Zero-day Exploits of 2015: How to Prevent Security Breaches That Leverage Unknown Exploits

Threat actors who pursue the most effective means to circumvent existing endpoint security measures rely on exploits, especially those that leverage unknown software vulnerabilities (commonly referred to as “zero-day exploits”). Embedded in specially crafted data files and content, such as Adobe® PDF and Microsoft® Word documents, zero-day exploits subvert legitimate applications to carry out nefarious activities. Their ability to evade traditional antivirus solutions, and a lack of vendor security patches, often leave organizations with little in terms of preventive measures against zero-day exploits, which generally serve as the initial stage of a targeted attack. This paper provides a list of the Top 10 Zero-Day Exploits of 2015, offers several possible conclusions based on the types of exploits and their associated cybercrime campaigns, and discusses three particularly effective zero-day exploits in brief case studies. The paper then introduces the reader to a technical solution that prevents security breaches which leverage zero-day exploits, including the Top 10 Zero-Day Exploits of 2015 that are listed in this document, without prior knowledge of the application vulnerabilities which they exploit. The solution safely enables organizations to continue the use of their applications regardless of the existence of zero-day exploits, the discovery of application vulnerabilities, or the deployment of security patches.
