CyberAttacks 4

Many cyber-criminals succeed by continually reinventing new malware and sharing it with their counterparts around the globe. This means that new threats are popping up every hour on all continents.

Many cybercriminals use a “smash and grab” approach to attacks: get in, take what they can, and get out before anyone can raise the alarm. Then they repeat the attack elsewhere.

Others go low and slow in an attempt to gain access to more data over a longer period of time. Some attacks come through the web while others through email or into the network on infected devices that were previously roaming outside the network security perimeter.

Counter-attack #4 Choose a firewall that protects against global threats

Reacting quickly to threats is critical for maximizing protection. In order to rapidly deploy countermeasures against emerging threats onto your firewall, look for a security solutions provider that has its own rapidresponse, in-house team of countermeasure experts. In addition, that team should extend its reach by collaborating with the broader security community.

A broad-spectrum solution utilizes a globally comprehensive cloud-based malware catalogue to augment local firewall analysis.

Finally, while a simple firewall can identify and block by geography, a sophisticated firewall will add botnet filtering capabilities to reduce exposure to known global threats by blocking traffic from dangerous domains or blocking connections to and from a particular location.
