This is the age of sophisticated cyberattacks, which involves using unknown malware to evade the traditional endpoint and gateway protection procedures. Known as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), these use targeted, custom-developed attacks that can gain access to a network and remain undetected for long period of time. Their success involves using evasive coding techniques to slip past conventional security barriers, stay under the radar for as long as possible, and then steal sensitive information. Since many antivirus and other solutions are able to detect and block only the known, signature-based malware, the ones without signatures can escape unnoticed and exploit the system’s susceptibilities. This will ultimately lead to undetected and undiscovered Zero Day attacks.
