More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to National Cyber Security Alliance estimates. Thats not surprising when you consider how many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) still rely on legacy AV tools despite their repeated failures to stop modern malware, ransomware, and zero-day attacks. Legacy AV is a lose-lose-lose proposition for SMBs. Attacks get through and cause damage. IT staff struggle to keep up with endless signature file updates from their AV vendors. End-users complain about sluggish system performance during scans and signature file updates. Fortunately, next-generation solutions are now available that protect endpoints with artificial intelligence (AI) rather than signatures. Ready to learn more?

All ML technology isnt created equal. Learn how the CrowdStrike ML-based Engine Defends Against Unknown Malware. While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterdays signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, todays unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. Whats the answer? A new white paper, The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity, explains machine learning (ML) technology what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. Youll also learn about CrowdStrikes exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platforms next-gen AV solution, it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.

Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as threat intelligence isnt. Its data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (IOCs), none of these things are intelligence. Theyre data. In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.

This FAQ tells you how to move beyond the old trade-off between anti-malware effectiveness and speed. It answers questions such as what is wrong with conventional approaches, which includes the inability of clients to perform signature matching operations on todays more than 70 million malware variants. It also discusses how the cloud and behavioral detection overcome the limitations of signature-based approaches. Finally, it answers questions about how cloud solutions can offer specific benefits such as: Improving speed by offloading pattern matching from endpoints Eliminating large signature downloads Stopping zero day attacks

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.
