Glass Class – How to Detect Malware
Hi, welcome to Glass Class. Today we're going to take a look at malware and the different ways to defend against it. So, two different types of malware. There is known malware, which has been seen before, so it is understood, and then we have zero-day threats, also referred to as unknown malware. Unknown malware is dangerous because it is new and so you won't know how it's going to behave. There are two different ways to detect malware. There's signature-based detection, which accesses an extensive catalog of previously-detected malware. And we have behavior-based detection, which can stop malware in its tracks regardless if it is a zero-day threat or previously-cataloged malware. Malware solutions that utilize only signature-based detection are reactive, and so they're not capable of stopping zero-day threats. The good news is that leading CASBs like Bitglass are capable of using both signature and behavior-based detection to stop malware in its tracks in real time, without the use of agents. So come check us out. Thank you for watching Glass Class.
