As the internet spreads its bounds to all the areas of life, both complexity and number of cyber-attacks are continuously increasing. It is quite evident also that our security structures have only a limited success in deterring these threats. Now it is possible to strengthen your defense mechanism and a few specialized companies are offering services pertaining to this.

There are specialized professionals and companies to help you deter advanced persistent threats and dig out better into the breach machines. Here is how an Advanced Persistent Threat Detection works:-

Early-Stage Advanced Persistence Threat Detection:

APTs are very difficult to detect, but it is vital to detect them early to safeguard your intelligent properties from the hackers.

· Essentially the most suspected warning signals can be the suspicious emails, therefore monitoring email activities and suspicious mails and downloads can help detect APTs.

· An abnormal network behavior based on protocols usage, applications, traffic volume and user behavior also helps identify a possible attack.

· Malware destructions can be identified in common file formats like pdf, html, gif etc. Being able to detect malware shellcode in these malicious files effectively helps finding out APTs.

· The IP addresses, websites, files, and email servers that have a history of malicious activity are often subject to such attacks in future also. So scrutinizing the connection’s reputation or an unreliable source can provide ample informations for Advanced Persistence Threat Detection.

Late-Stage Advanced Persistence Threat Detection:

It is a very important fact that most APTs are found out only once the security is compromised. Once the application changes inside the network, hackers can directly make changes to the key applications. Hence, at a later stage application whitelisting techniques are used to detect the unauthorized changes and attempts.

There may be signs of access to critical database structures indicating that your network needs more APT security. A real-time monitoring however helps to detect and quarantine malicious users on the network.

An unusual quantities of data movement, file transfers and encrypted traffic if are being moved within or outside the network, this may be signaling a possible attack.

Prevention

With the incidence responses that can stand the latest threats, the APT and control methods investigates these breaches and seeks to kill this chain from the breached machines and networks. Fast analysis and remediation is provided such tools that detects the breach in real-time. A comprehensive action for the remedy is instantly designed.
