& N-day Attacks
Both Zero-day attacks and N-day attacks are highly dangerous advanced persistent threats (APTs). Extremely hard to detect, and even harder to prevent, Zero-day attacks can lie waiting to strike for months before ever being discovered, if they are discovered at all.
However, all it takes is for the Zero-day to have one vulnerability that can be exploited. Learn how Perception Point turns the table.
The Zero-day Attack Challenge
Zero-day attacks leverage a software vulnerability (aka bug) that is either unknown or unaddressed by the vendor. The problem is that common APT modules (sandboxes and CDRs) rely on known data or behaviors. Thus, when you combine an unknown bug with evasion techniques, advanced attackers can easily circumvent the detection methods of these solutions.
The Zero-Day Attack Kill Chain
Intruder selects target, researches it for an extensive period of time, and attempts to identify vulnerabilities.
Intruder finds unknown vulnerabilities and creates remote access malware weapon.
Intruder transmits weapon to target (e.g. via e-mail attachments, websites or USB drives).
Malware weapon’s program code triggers, which takes action on target network to exploit vulnerability.
C&C and Actions
Intruder takes action to achieve their goals, such as data exfiltration, data destruction, or encryption for ransom.
Day Attack Technology
Perception Point has revolutionized the way Zero-day attacks and N-days are prevented. Our proprietary HAP (hardware-assisted platform) is a next-gen dynamic engine that combines CPU-level data with innovative software algorithms to neutralize unknown threats.
The Shift: Rather than detecting malware, the HAP works at the exploit stage. If a vulnerability is unknown, it simply doesn’t matter – exploitation is a deterministic act; if there is an exploit there is an attack. By targeting attacks at this stage, the HAP cannot be bypassed by zero‑days and performs its magic in seconds not minutes.
Our Zero-Day Attack Advantages
Next-gen Dynamic Scan
In independent trials, Perception Point ranked #1 in both detection and false positive rate, outperforming any other dynamic (and static) engines offered today.
Zero False Positives
Deterministic method means we provide a clear, single verdict, allowing your SOC team to focus on the incidents that really matter.
Light Speed Prevention
Ultra-fast scanning delivers a verdict within 3 seconds on average. This speed means Perception Point can be deployed before the end-user, ensuring the content is delivered only after it is marked as clean.
We scan 100% of traffic, no shortcuts, no statistics, no guessing.
Holistic coverage (across channels)
The HAP technology can be deployed across all channels, providing equal protection against Zero-day & N-day attacks.
All our solutions are deployed in a few clicks, creating zero fuss to you and your IT team.
