ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Damballa, the experts in advanced threat protection, today announced that company CTO Brian Foster will present, “Shortfalls of Security Sandboxing to Detect Advanced Threats,” a live webinar to be held on Tuesday, August 27 at 8 am PDT / 11 am EDT.
“Shortfalls of Security Sandboxing to Detect Advanced Threats”
As prevention suites are becoming increasingly ineffective, information security professionals are turning to alternative approaches to detect the presence of advanced malware. One popular tool is malware sandboxing, which analyzes inbound suspicious files in the network by allowing them to run in a virtual machine environment with the hopes of finding malware and extracting forensics data to create signatures to block future infections.
While the approach of "detonating" malware to capture communication traits and endpoint forensics seems logical, it has significant shortcomings. Enterprises that solely rely on sandboxing as the only solution for advanced threat detection are leaving sizeable gaps in their security posture.
In this webcast Foster will provide attendees with valuable insights on the following:
- Understanding the Cyber Kill Chain
- Seeing How Malware Can Evade Virtual Machine Sandboxing
- Discovering How to Use Network Intelligence and Monitoring to Uncover Threats
