When Good Applications Go Bad: Adding Application Control to your Toolbox
For years, attackers have targeted weak links in enterprise security -- exploiting vulnerabilities, misconfigured servers, or simply getting unsophisticated end users to click on malicious links. But in network security today there is an increasing amount of application-borne threats that easily evade traditional security countermeasures by being embedded into legitimate application content.
Stand-alone technologies and point-product deployments can leave an enterprise more vulnerable than a consolidated, integrated security strategy. To reduce the risk of application-borne threats requires overlapping complementary layers of protection, for both the network and systems.
