THE ATTACKS YOU CAN’T SEE COMING
Cybercriminals are constantly getting craftier and finding new ways to infiltrate your networks. Today’s hackers are financially motivated, and they view small, medium and large businesses as easy targets. And once a bad actor has slipped past your perimeter defenses, their next goal is to establish persistence on your device.
WHAT IS PERSISTENCE?
Persistence is a tactic that allows attackers to quietly maintain access to a system over time. This “idle time” is often used to conduct additional research, explore the victim’s environment and determine what the best and most profitable next step should be. The longer an attacker persists on a device, the more intel they’re able to gather, the more damage they can ultimately do when deploying ransomware, stealing passwords or executing other malicious activity.
THE LIMITATIONS OF PREVENTIVE SECURITY
While systems designed to prevent cyberattacks are important, on their own they aren’t enough to defend against today’s hackers. Cybercriminals have become better at bypassing these technologies. Without an ability to detect when an attacker finds their way in and attempts to establish persistence, you’re left none the wiser and they’re left with free reign of your system and data. That’s why we highly suggest a security tool we use for ourselves. This tool is built to stop hackers when they least expect it.
HOW TO ELIMINATE PERSISTENT THREATS
Persistent threats are purpose-built to fly under the radar. To find them your business needs a balance of technology backed by trained experts who understand how attackers operate well enough to see through the techniques they use to sneak their way in.
HACKERS HIDE USING PERSISTENCE. WE CAN SEEK THEM OUT FOR YOU
To protect our clients from persistent threats, we offer a managed detection and response (MDR) solution with a team of threat hunters as part of our security service. This added layer of protection is designed specifically to seek out the hidden threats that other tools miss.
