This solution brief outlines how security operations must evolve to a continuous operation focused on assessing readiness, acquiring and integrating threat intelligence, and increasing the speed of threat response capability
Threat intellegence can even up the battle between attackers and defenders. This 31 page report from Securosis defines Threat Intellegence and discusses how you can leverage threat intelligence to shorten the window between compromise and detection.
The primary approaches used to fight advanced threats over the past several years simply aren’t effective. Traditional methods such as user education, vulnerability patching, and malware detection have failed to protect enterprises against the current threat landscape. Attackers continuously develop sophisticated tactics and evasion techniques to bypass the latest protection methods, requiring the security industry to find a different approach to malware protection.
Trusteer has pioneered a new cybercrime prevention approach that provides unparalleled protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, information-stealing malware.
Trusteer Apex delivers a new approach to advanced malware protection - Stateful Application Control. By understanding what applications are doing and why, the software can help protect against the latest advanced malware attacks without increasing IT overhead or disrupting end users.

How Snapper Further Protects Data in Amazon S3 Using CWP for Storage
Abstract: Snapper, a New Zealand-based company that develops custom account-based solutions, was creating an online concessions payment program for local students and needed a way to enhance the security of their personal information on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The solution had to further protect online student profiles and associated payment details stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) against malware and threats. Snapper chose Symantec Cloud Workload Protection for Storage (CWP for Storage) for its advanced malware protection, elastic scalability, and simple deployment requiring only a few hours.
Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.
