Who Needs Malware? How Adversaries Use Fileless Attacks To Evade Your Security

Learn how fileless techniques work and why they present such a complex challenge.

Adversaries are increasingly using fileless attacks that leverage trusted systems and processes to bypass standard security. The arms race between cybersecurity vendors and determined adversaries has never been more heated. As soon as a new security tool is released, threat actors strive to develop a way around it. One advanced threat technique that is experiencing success is the use of fileless attacks, where no executable file is written to disk.

The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 51 percent of cyberattacks are malware-free, so there’s no indication that these attacks will be subsiding anytime soon. Read this white paper to get the important information you need to successfully defend your company against stealthy fileless attacks.

Download this white paper to learn:

  • The detailed anatomy of a fileless intrusion, including the initial compromise, gaining command and control, escalating privileges and establishing persistence
  • How fileless attacks exploit trusted systems — the types of processes compromised, the specific exploit tactics used to gain a foothold, and more
  • Why traditional technologies fail to protect against fileless attacks and what you can do to better defend your organization against them
