Plan of action?
With the various increases in polymorphism and other malware trends, Lonas believes it is more apparent than ever that organisations need to bolster their security posture with next-generation endpoint protection and real-time, highly accurate threat intelligence to protect themselves, their users, and their customers from cybercriminal activity.
“Dynamic intelligence enables them to set proactive policies to automatically protect networks, endpoints, and users as part of a defence-in-depth strategy,” Lonas adds.
For Lonas, this is especially necessary when security teams consider the threat landscape as a whole, in addition to conducting in-depth analysis on the threats targeting them.
“Furthermore, individuals need to be more vigilant than ever about the websites they visit, the URLs they follow, and the applications they download and use,” Lonas adds.
