Advanced Persistent Threats

Some organizations may be subjected to targeted attacks that are more purposeful, resourceful and sophisticated. Across the industry, these types of attacks are referred to as "Advanced Persistent Threats" or "APT." Though the incidence of these types of attacks is small when compared to automated or commoditized threats that are broad in their targeting, Advanced Persistent Threats and the actors behind them can pose a much more serious threat.

To deal effectively with this problem, enterprises will need to respond to this "persistent" threat with a persistent, active and layered defense model that spans the entire attack surface of their organization. Know your attack surface, know your assets, and insure your layered defenses are appropriately designed and up-to-date to best detect, resist and respond to Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
