Aware that their backward-facing defenses fall short, several IT security vendors are touting their sandbox products. But rather than adopting a truly fresh approach, most are merely grafting a sandbox onto their legacy strategies, which routinely fail to catch these attacks. While sandboxing advances the signature-based approach of the past, these new attempts fail due to the same old flaws. Simply put, the underlying architecture does not lend itself to catching the zero-day, stealthy, and persistent malware.
Competitive sandbox solutions fall short on various fronts for today's new generation of cyber attacks.
Guarding against these advanced threats demands a fundamentally different approach. Organizations need a defense that does not rely on mere malware signatures.
