The Fitsec Advanced Persistent Threat feed is a collection of data used to identify malware fingerprints and attacks targeted towards an organization. It is designed to be easily integrated into your existing systems and to improve your malware detection capabilities. With our APT-feed, your organization is equipped to possibly stop an advanced attack altogether, or at least minimize the damages to your operation.
Targeted attacks are often referred to as APTs (Advanced Persistent Threat). The target is usually carefully selected and specific, and it can be a company or an individual office. By using multiple phases to break into a network and limiting the target range, targeted attacks become increasingly difficult to detect.
The attackers usually hold key information about the target organization, which they use to gain access into the network by using multiple different technical and social methods. APTs are commonly long lasting and invisible to the target organization itself. Usually the main goal of an APT is to capture critical information and/or obstruct the operations of an organization by attacking their infrastructure.
"The Fitsec APT-feed has a broad array of high quality technical IoC's that allow us to integrate it to the whole cyber kill chain. From network devices to workstations and servers, we are able to protect our primary assets on several different levels."
Completely protecting against APTs is not possible, however with quick detection and response times you can minimize the damage done to your organization.
To aid quick detection and response times, it is a good idea to educate your staff and raise awareness on how to detect APTs and how to act in the event of an attack.
Other best practices for protection include keeping software up to date, installing antivirus and anti-malware products on all systems, monitoring your networks and utilizing threat intelligence feeds to detect malicious activity in your networks.
It is also best to avoid opening unknown links to websites and to avoid connecting unknown USB-storage devices to your systems, as these can make you vulnerable to attacks.
Suspicious activity includes logins to new or unusual systems or logins during unusual times. Increased network activity during or outside office hours can also be an indicator of a breach. Other indicators of a breach can include systems slowing down, unusual software updates or connection problems.
Also, indicators of an ongoing attack or upcoming breach to gain sensitive information can include unusual calls or emails to your staff.
If you have any reason to believe your network has been attacked or breached, it is best to consult a professional as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
Our service differs from similar solutions because we manually segment and filter the data from the reports and scanners. We also emphasize the contents of our feeds based on the individual customer and their threat landscape. In the case of targeted attacks, we focus our malware analysis on APT-actors that have previously targeted the industry segments of our customers.
Any organization monitoring the information security status of their networks will benefit from the intelligence gathered by our APT-feed. Also, all organizations that handle sensitive data should be actively looking for ways to mitigate the damages caused by targeted attacks. Our APT-feed can be a crucial tool for organizations in these segments: Governmental institutions, critical infrastructure, network operators etc.
All our feeds have a 1-month trial period that allows you to assess whether the intelligence is beneficial to your organization.
The Fitsec DDOS feed offers intelligence on the latest DDOS threats and it reports on threats that are targeted against an organizations network infrastructure. The data provided by the DDOS feed includes malicious C2 (command and control) commands issued and the origin of the attack in real time.
The DDOS feed is especially beneficial to operators or other organizations that have critical online services and want to monitor the information security status of their networks.
The Fitsec SandboxIOC feed contains network IOC data that gives detailed insight into malware C2 (Command and Control) servers, enabling your security team to do prioritized response against internal malware infections to prevent further damages from occurring.
The SandboxIOC feed is crucial to network operators, governmental institutions and other organizations who need to detect malicious behavior in the network perimeter before malicious activies damage their business.
The Fitsec SinkholeIOC feed listens to the traffic and detects the stolen data. As a client you will get BOT data such as infected IP addresses and information of the malware which has been detected. The Sinkhole feed provides actionable intelligence on
hundreds of thousands of infected, malicious systems globally.
The SinkholeIOC feed is especially beneficial to operators and Governmental Institutions, and for anyone else who has the need to locate malicious systems.
