Defeating Advanced Persistent Threat Malware

Mar 18, 2013

Malware is everywhere. Is your organization protected? There are a number of known ways to neutralize viruses, worms, and Trojan horse viruses—anti-virus software, web filters, etc. However, existing approaches are not effective against sophisticated Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Malware that exploits DNS for stealthy communications and data transfer. APT Malware is probably the most dangerous class of malware because it enables hackers to steal customer and / or sensitive corporate information over extended periods of time.

A DNS Firewall Solution can help protect against threats by:

  • Preventing end users’ devices from being infected EVEN IF the end user clicks on a link to a malicious website
  • Disrupting malware communications from infected devices on your network to the malware master controller, thereby stopping transmission of stolen data
  • Pinpointing infected clients by IP and MAC addresses so that they can be scheduled for cleanup
  • Reporting and analyzing top threats to YOUR organization by malware site and location
