Fileless attacks have won the arms race against traditional AV solutions. By hijacking legitimate resources to compromise systems, fileless attacks evade blacklists, disk scans, and signature-based security. Companies may be tempted to address fileless threats by adding more layers of security to their legacy solution, but unfortunately, this is a losing strategy.
Fighting a war of attrition where temporary success is achieved at the cost of system performance is a path that leads to defeat.
Cylance® protects environments against fileless attacks without sacrificing system performance. This white paper explains how fileless malware can be successfully defeated by examining:
- The definition and scope of fileless attacks
- The vital role of exploit kits
- Kovter, the malware that adopted a fileless approach
- The Cylance approach to combating fileless attacks using CylancePROTECT® Memory Exploitation Detection and Prevention, and Script Management, as well as CylanceOPTICS™
