Strategy: How to Detect Zero-Day Malware And Limit Its Impact

Malware is becoming harder to detect using traditional security tools. Malware ­developers are increasingly using techniques such as polymorphism to make ­variants different enough from each other that they foil antivirus systems. Zero-day malware, by definition, is malware that isn’t recognized as a “known bad,” which puts IT administrators at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to fighting it.

Security experts recommend several techniques for battling zero-day malware, including behavioral analysis, network monitoring, situational awareness and even hardware-based security. In this report, Dark Reading looks at several categories of products that have emerged to address the zero-day malware problem, as well
as how these products and processes can complement existing antivirus deployments. We examine how zero-day malware has proliferated and how IT administrators can defend their networks from malware they’ve never seen before. (S6081112)
