Less Than Half Of Cyberattacks Detected By Anti-Virus

According to a recent SANS report, less than half of cyberattacks were detected via anti-virus. Commenting on the report, Andy Norton, director of threat intelligence for Lastline, said:

Andy Norton, Director of Threat Intelligence at Lastline:

“Endpoint security and anti-virus solutions, are like gun laws, they should change, but they won’t. There are simply too many conflicts of interest on a production system, there will always be a trade off between productivity and security at the endpoint.

“To diligently counter intrusions, organisations need to embrace adversary resistant AI analytics, to automate prevention and response countermeasures based on a coalesced array of signature, behavioural and anomaly detection technologies.”
