Detecting the Advanced Persistent Threat

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), an extremely sophisticated class of targeted attacks, are complex, custom exploits designed to infiltrate a targeted network without detection and remain undetected for extended periods. These attacks are normally the work of a highly skilled, well funded and extremely motivated attacker. APTs may employ several attack phases - collectively called a kill chain - to complete their objective, leveraging stealth and persistence to clandestinely execute each phase. While objectives vary, APTs often focus on the theft of sensitive data or intellectual property, or in the case of Stuxnet, industrial espionage.

Triumfant's unique ability to identify malicious attacks by detecting and analyzing change provides organizations the Rapid Detection and Response capability to answer the Advanced Persistent Threat. Triumfant detects the malicious attacks that evade organizational defenses in real-time. Within minutes, Triumfant provides detailed forensic analysis and builds a remediation to stop the attack. Early detection allows the organization to interrupt the kill chain and disable the attack before the objective is reached.

Won’t My Existing Tools Detect APT?

The answer is: not likely. Traditional defenses were designed to defend against broad opportunistic attacks that leverage known vulnerabilities or weaknesses, and are heavily dependent on prior knowledge for detection. They are also designed to detect attacks inbound to the network or host machine, and not designed to detect attacks once they actually infect a machine. Even more advanced tools will miss attacks delivered by means other than the network, such as the delivery of Stuxnet via USB storage devices.

"...the definition of successful defense has to change from “keeping attackers out” to “sometimes attackers are going to get in; detect them as early as possible and minimize the damage.” Assume that your organization might already be compromised and go from there."
