Why Outsmart Cyber Attackers When You Can Remove Them Entirely?

Posted by Kowsik Guruswamy on Dec 5, 2019

Cyber threat actors have gotten smarter--or lazier--depending on your perspective. It used to be fairly
common for attackers to spend days or even weeks probing targeted networks for vulnerabilities to
exploit. Once identified, they would break down traditional cybersecurity defenses around the network

hole was patched and they were shut out.

Today, threat actors are much more subtle. Instead of trying to break down the castle walls, they simply
steal the keys and stroll through the front door. By tricking users into willfully giving up their credentials
through spear phishing, threat actors can simply remain undetected for days, weeks or even months until
the time is right to execute their mission-- to extricate data, hold systems hostage, spy on users or all of
