All malware is bad but some malware is worse than others.

Unless you prevent it, password-stealing malware can harvest login credentials, escalate privileges, and steal your data.

Challenge

Malware is increasingly sophisticated and dangerous.

RISKS

Administrative privileges give malware superpowers.

Solution

Prevent and contain malware before infection spreads.

Hackers use malware as their eyes and ears inside your organization.

Social engineering works. People open 70% of spear-phishing emails. Half of those who open click on links within the email, according to FireEye. The malicious payload drops and hackers get inside.

Viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and spyware exploit holes in your attack surface, such as missing or easily cracked passwords. On a single computer, malware can slow down processing, install ads, suck memory or worse. Ransomware, malware that holds you hostage until you pay up, can be costly and embarrassing. If malware gains administrative credentials, it can log into systems and wreak havoc without you even knowing.

Evolve your malware defenses to keep pace with hackers.

The best way to prevent malware or ransomware from harming your company is to prevent it from entering in the first place. Threat intelligence uses blacklists to block known malicious applications from installing or running harmful processes. With automated application control, people can continue to use safe, whitelisted applications they need to do their job.

If malware slips by your blacklist, you must be able to stop it. Removing administrative privileges from everyday users ensures malware can’t hijack credentials and cause more extensive damage. If malware has entered your network, a defense-in-depth cyber solution alerts you to immediately change passwords so that malware cannot progress.
