File Integrity Monitoring: A Critical Piece in the Security Puzzle
With Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), a new class of attacker is emerging as organized groups of criminal operators that systematically and methodically gain access to systems and remain undetected over a prolonged duration. As a result, unsuspected intrusions leverage trust relationships such as legitimate accounts to access and compromise targeted systems.
And the threat to sensitive corporate data is evolving daily, and big data breaches continue to dominate the headlines. The numbers are huge: 100s of millions of records compromised right under the noses of information security teams, with breeches undetected for more than a year.
While the use of custom malware in attacks has remained stable, the malware itself has become increasingly difficult to detect, enabling it to successfully bypass standard anti-malware controls.
In this white paper, "Reduce Your Breach Risk: File Integrity Monitoring for PCI DSS Compliance and Data Security" you will learn how additional layers of protection, including file integrity monitoring (FIM), are needed to protect sensitive corporate data against these types of threats.
Because of its ability to rapidly detect unauthorized access to critical systems, FIM is fundamental in the prevention of data breaches that occur due to custom malware attacks and malicious (or non-malicious) insider activities.
