Improving network security by ‘deflecting’ cybercriminals

Keeping corporate IT networks secure from external attack is a constant task for security teams. However, spotting threats that have already breached defences can be an even bigger challenge.

Sophisticated phishing attacks can trick users into downloading infected files or visiting compromised web pages. A simple mistake can mean that, even with the best perimeter defences in place, malicious actors can still gain access to a network and resources connected to it.

Once inside a network, cybercriminals can lurk for long periods, quietly moving around and assessing what data is available and what it might be worth. This activity can often continue without triggering alarms or providing warnings to the security team.

Overcoming this situation means using a new technique that makes it significantly easier to spot cybercriminals who have successfully entered a network. It allows security teams to identify the threat and then take steps to remove it and minimise any damage or loss.
