Mostly high-ranking employees are targeted by individual attacks like spearphishing, whaling or CEO fraud. Unfortunately, those kind of attacks are almost invisible for regular filtering systems. Hornetsecurity ATP is using a whole range of detection mechanisms to prevent those types of attacks.
Ransomware are polymorphous viruses like Locky, Tesla or Petya that paralyse a computer or a whole network by encrypting the locally stored files. Hornetsecurity ATP exposes these hard-to-find viruses using a sandbox engine and the freezing technology, where suspicious emails are withheld for a specific period of time, until they are analyzed again with updated signatures.
Blended attacks combine several attacking routes. An email for example can contain a file attachment which can carry the link to a download page with malware. Hornetsecurity ATP fights these kind of attacks by using URL scanning and URL rewriting. Additionally, sandboxing and freezing is used, too.
According to Germany’s digital association Bitkom, more than half of all German companies have already been affected by data theft, sabotage or espionage. The Hornetsecurity spy-out forensic system detects not only familiar but also completely new malware that try to collect information. The system reacts in real-time and immediately alerts the IT security teams before sensitive data can leave the company.
The Hornetsecurity real time alerts provide notifications of acute attacks on companies and allow a quick initiation of additional internal measurements and juridical proceedings. Additionally, employees can be sensitized in order to detect further attacking routes, e.g. via telephone. In case an already delivered email is detected as potentially dangerous, the ex-post alarm can initiate an analysis of the contaminated accounts or systems.
