Real-world examples of advanced, targets cyber attacks, how they successfully evade legacy IDS and perimeter solutions, and how you can catch them

The numbers are in. 80% of alerts generated by signature- and policy-based security solutions are unreliable and take resources away from the most critical alerts. Dwell time in 2019 exceeded 190 days. And, more than 80% of malware signature strands are used only once by an attacker.

When it comes to advanced persistent threats, it is time to arm ourselves with a new solution.

In this webinar, we will show you how the key analytics capabilities of a next-gen, behavior-based IDS allow you to detect advanced, targeted cyber attacks and other evasive attacks that are notably more difficult to find and prevent. These key analytics capabilities include:

  • - Use of statistical, signature and anomaly detections
  • - Detection, investigation, hunting, and alert management
  • - Early cyber kill chain warning signals for threats, Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), attacks, and more
  • - High fidelity forensic source data

We will also discuss and demonstrate tactics used by today's cyber attackers, and insider threats, to slip past legacy IDS solutions unnoticed. Some of the detections discussed will be data exfiltration, detection of DNS tunnels, and DB attacks, such as SQL injections, etc.

Join us to learn more about behavior-based IDS and see why these solutions, like our Accedian Skylight next-gen IDS, are ideal for today's expansive virtual and perimeter-less attack surfaces. You need the power to see into the darkest reaches of your network with an agile, easy-to-deploy and cost-effective cyber security visibility solution.
