Security Layer 8
COMBATS: NEW OR 'NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN' THREATS
The use of cloud or network sandboxing services complements the power
of your firewall. This technology delivers real-time inspection of suspicious
files that firewalls don’t have a known signature to check against.
Security Layer 8
Security Layer 7
COMBATS: ENCRYPTED MALWARE
What better way to launch a successful attack than to hide it from
discovery? Smart cyber criminals mask their attacks inside traffic
encrypted by SSL/TLS standards. This helps them sneak malware by a single-layer network defense.
Security Layer 6
COMBATS : DEVICE COMPROMISE | MALWARE | UNKNOWN USB DRIVES
End-users’ curiosity is a risk factor in itself. Forever seeking connectivity,
users will often connect to any available network without considering
Security Layer 5
COMBATS: DEVICE COMPROMISE
Just because employees or users are within the perimeter of your
network, doesn’t mean any and all threats have been mitigated.
In the modern work environment, users are connected
through the wireless network via Wi-Fi access points.
Security Layer 4
COMBATS: DEVICE COMPROMISE | MALWARE
Security would be much easier if organizations only had to maintain
oversite of a controlled, defined environment. However users and devices
move in and out of networks — and it is the organization’s responsibility
to ensure mobile workers have secure access when they leave the
Security Layer 3
COMBATS: PHISHING | BUSINESS EMAIL COMPROMISE (BEC) | ACCOUNT TAKEOVER (ATO)
The use of email — particularly in business settings — is unavoidable.
Because of this commonality, it remains one of the top attack vectors
for cyber-criminals, which leverage a salvo of phishing attacks and
business email compromise (BEC) campaigns.
Security Layer 2
COMBATS: UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS
You have your front door (or wall in this case) in place, but you still
need to look through the peep hole to see who you can let in. It’s
a labored metaphor, but the premise has been around as long as
mankind has been building walls, doors and moats.
