As today’s cyber attacks continue to increase in frequency and complexity, organizations must respond with new tactics to protect against these attacks. All techniques are not created equal, however, and today's cyber security expert has to understand what tools can and can't help in their cyber security efforts.

This paper explains how sandboxing works, the failings of most sandbox-based approaches, and what organizations should look for in VM-based analysis of cyber threats to improvet heir security approach.

In this paper:

  • Learn about the techniques cyber criminals use to outwit traditional security tools
  • Discover why most sandbox tools fall short and leave organizations vulnerable
  • Find out why purpose-built, dynamic analysis tools coupled with real-time threat intelligence are your best defense against today's cyber attacks.
