Threat automation and as-a-service offerings are elevating attacks of all skill levels, helping even inexperienced threat actors bypass network security defenses. The latest trends of widely available, highly evasive techniques, sophisticated red team tools – such as Cobalt Strike – and hack kits have improved the speed and success rate of covert and long-term attacks.
And it doesn’t stop there. Successful phishing attacks have increased as evasive techniques and service offerings become more widely available, taking advantage of hybrid work becoming the norm. In fact, 90% of reported security incidents today involve phishing. DNS-based attacks are also growing at an alarming rate, with 85% of modern malware using DNS for malicious activity.
As threats continue to evolve, your security should too. Read more in our latest Unit 42 Network Threat Trends Research Report.
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, securing the web gateway requires greater protection from more sophisticated, automated and highly evasive attacks. Many of these use multiple vectors at different stages, for example, phishing URLs for initial access, SaaS applications for account takeover, and later DNS for command and control or data exfiltration. And we continue to see these tactics in headline attacks such as Log4j, Colonial Pipeline and Solar Storm.
Organizations wanting to modernize their internet security need a solution that protects all traffic, not just web traffic, with complete, best-in-class security while ensuring an exceptional user experience. And we deliver.
Many attackers today capitalize on weak implementations of Zero Trust and least-privilege concepts. 70% of attacks rely on lateral movement to achieve their objectives. Without secure network segmentation that incorporates prevention, security teams are reliant on detecting an ongoing attack further down the chain, which is costly, time-consuming and risky.
Now more than ever, it's critical to deploy the right segmentation technology that can bring extensive context around users, devices, applications, machines and dynamic workloads, while implementing policies of least-privilege to control risk and prevent threats specific to the needs of that network location.
