Glass Class – How to Detect Malware
Hi, welcome to Glass Class. Today, we're going to be talking about where to detect malware. There are two types of malware, known and unknown. You can protect from both of these threats using a behavioral approach, but how do you detect them? There are three different use cases: on upload, on download, and at rest. When a user tries to upload data from an infected endpoint, such as an unmanaged personal device, you want to be able to stop this threat before it can affect any of your cloud apps. You also want to do this agentlessly, like with Bitglass' reverse proxy, because sometimes you can't install agents onto users' personal devices.You also want to be able to stop the download of any infected files coming from the cloud, such as from your Office 365 app. And third, is malware at rest, that's already in your cloud applications. You want to be able to stop the spread of any malware into any other cloud apps that could be pulling data. So those are the three use cases that you want to protect from. When a user tries to upload data from an infected endpoint, when a user tries to download an already infected file, or when malware at rest is already in your cloud application. Thank you for watching Glass Class.
