The result has been a drastic shift in the way we work. Unfortunately for security teams, bad actors are adapting as quickly as organizations.
The shift in how we work has sent investments in cloud infrastructure and Software as a Service (SaaS) apps soaring — these changes combined with the growth in the hybrid, browser-based workforce has multiplied the amount of data that needs protecting. Ransomware gangs have caught on and are taking advantage of expanded attack surfaces, leveraging a new class of threats called Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) that target web browsers as the initial attack vector and easily evade legacy security systems.
This ebook by Expert Focus, an SC Media publication, explores how the growth in the hybrid workforce is fueling ransomware gangs, how these threat actors are using HEAT evasive techniques to infiltrate web browsers, and what organizations can do to prevent these attacks.
