Files from the web are network assassins. Here are no-excuse defenses.
As of 2018, supply chain attacks have increased 78%. By infiltrating a supply chain network, attackers can spread malware throughout connected networks and devices.
Governments worldwide have been affected by supply chain attacks facilitated through the spread of an evasive and malicious software update file. In a recent attack, bad actors successfully programmed trojanized update files with a dormancy period of up to 2 weeks and temporary file replacement techniques in order to evade detection.
Almost all successful attacks use malware hidden in a file or attachment at some point in their attack strategy. If you wait for detect and response actions, you are probably a statistic. Put technology to work to ensure files are safe to enter. Don’t be the weak link in anyone’s supply chain or, worse yet, your own weak link.
Join Votiro’s Director of Engineering, Richard Hosgood, and Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies’ CTO, Brent Hansen, to learn:
- How file attestation can be used to verify file integrity before downloading files to the network.
- How web isolation prevents compromised browsers from downloading malicious code.
- How Positive Selection technology proactively removes malicious code—including zero-days—from any files without removing active content or compromising user experience.
