The truth is that they can get a lot worse – and no one is immune. Your company’s data has never been at greater risk. There is no doubt that 2014 was a dire year for many organizations, as they failed to properly protect their computer systems and the data held upon them. As if it wasn’t bad enough keeping on top of new zero-day vulnerabilities, targeted attacks, and revelations of state-sponsored espionage, users are potentially exposing companies’ most important data by not following best practices and using consumer-grade cloud services that aren’t built with enterprise needs in mind. An ever more mobile workforce wants to work on their files remotely but may be taking dangerous risks with sensitive corporate data at the same time. In this white paper, we detail some of the biggest computer security threats of the last year and offer some predictions on what we can expect to see in 2015.

Recent research from Kaspersky has revealed a massive criminal campaign that was able to infiltrate more than 100 different banks and steal upwards of $1 billion from the affected institutions. Kaspersky dubbed this operation the Carbanak APT due to a connection between the malware used in the attacks and the now infamous Carberp banking botnet. You may recall the headlines in 2013 that revealed the Carberp source code had been leaked into the wild, making it accessible to virtually any would-be criminal group that may want it. The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.

Mobility is exploding. Workers and businesses fully expect to work anywhere, any time, from any device. Riding right alongside this growth is the amount of data created and consumed on mobile devices. While this presents organizations with an attractive means of empowering flexibility and productivity, the security risks are real and daunting. Unfortunately, while enterprise mobility management tools can provide valuable administrative capabilities and protect the organization from phone loss, accidental data loss or weak passwords, they lack the necessary visibility into today’s modern security risks, including malware and other device-centric attacks

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs. At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing, code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a smartphone or tablet.

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS and Android. While Android has higher consumer market share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise, accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1 2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1 . The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely from security trends observed in the consumer space. Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81% global market share2 , predictably invites more broad-based attacks than iOS. When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise, however, both need threat protection because at a fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and they face the risk that attackers will cont

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands. No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

With breaches today often going undetected for months or years, many organizations must now accept the very real possibility that intruders have already compromised their systems, regardless of the organization’s security posture. Today, compromises are measured in minutes and the speed of response is measured in days. Enterprises the world over are realizing that to close the gap, they need to evolve their security operations from being a largely reactive unit (waiting for alerts that indicate a threat) to being proactively on the hunt for new attacks that have evaded detection. When an incident does occur, the speed of your response will dictate the extent to which you can minimize the impact. In the case of a malicious attack, it takes on average over 7 months to identify a breach, and nearly two and a half additional months to contain the incident. Every second counts, and while the clock is ticking, the cost of the breach is rapidly increasing as well. Breaches that take over 3

Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t

Companies are facing massive cyber security challenges – many of which are rooted in the endpoint. In fact, according to IDC, 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. If you are a McAfee customer, and still have breaches in your endpoint security, then something isn’t working. Perhaps you’re struggling to prevent advanced attacks, or your security team may be burdened by maintaining overly complex policies. You and your end users may even be facing performance issues. If you are experiencing any of these challenges, then your endpoint security products may actually be creating more problems than they solve. Ask yourself these questions for a cybersecurity reality check.

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
