Interesting article in Business Computing World resonated with our views on the threat landscape of today and why a real-time File Integrity Monitoring approach is increasingly being seen as an essential security best practice – link below.

They say "Designed for another time, most first-generation network security devices can't keep pace with challenges"

And it's true. Traditional security methods are no longer adequate in today's changing threat landscape....

As suggested traditional security methods are no longer adequate in today's changing threat landscape. Whether due to complacency or naivety, the vast majority of organizations have failed to adapt security processes and procedures to reflect the changing landscape. Anti-Virus (AV) software, along with its Firewall side-kick, has been the standard weapon against Internet-borne threats for the past two decades. But in a changing threat landscape, AV is fast beginning to look past its sell-by date.

Organizations need to address this complacency and start implementing security best practices in terms of both processes and procedures that are key to defending the infrastructure and reducing the risk of compromise. They also need some contingency: a completely infallible way of detecting the presence of malware if and when it does manage to bypass security defenses.

With constantly evolving threats companies have no choice but to install additional security layers such as real-time file integrity monitoring (FIM) for malware detection, providing immediate intelligence about a breach while enabling false positives, such as genuinely intended system changes, to be reconciled with planned changes.

The simple fact is that the more traditional IT security measures, including penetration testing, firewalls, and anti-virus, are really only part of a far more in-depth and holistic approach to IT security. The risks have changed. Organizations in all sectors must be armed with the right defenses to ensure that security is part of everyday business operations.
