Detecting Fileless Web Threats Just Got Easier
Lastline’s unique architecture protects organizations from advanced fileless malware.
Last week at the RSA security conference, Christopher Kruegel, Lastline co-founder and CEO, gave a remarkable presentation about detecting fileless web threats—a new capability present in the spring 2017 release of Lastline Enterprise.
During his presentation, Kruegel explained how this new feature enables rapid detection of browser-based exploits—even when there are no files to analyze.
We are all familiar with the basic process of detecting malicious threats by analyzing the files that harbor those threats. Malware detection tools inspect suspect files for known malware signatures, abnormalities in structure or content, and malicious behavior when opened or executed.
ArsTechnica, security editor Dan Godin says “fileless malware is going mainstream.”
