Common signature-based malware detection methods employed by anti-virus and intrusion detection systems rely on pre-knowledge of malware used in a cyber attack. To avoid detection, advanced threat actors create custom malware that evades existing signatures. Attackers then use spear phishing email and malicious web content to deploy their custom malware tradecraft and establish an initial presence in the target environment.
Dell SecureWorks' Managed Advanced Malware Protection (MAMP) helps organizations detect and prevent the deployment of custom and targeted malware used by sophisticated threat actors such as APT. Unlike traditional signature-based detection methods designed to block known threats, the MAMP Service provides signature-less detection and prevention of new and unknown malware.
MAMP combines market-leading Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) web and email security appliances with Dell SecureWorks' award-winning Managed Security Services and elite cyber intelligence from the Counter Threat Unit research team. As a key component of effective Advanced Threat Management, MAMP provides enhanced defense against advanced targeted threats. Organizations may also opt for a premium service level that includes deep dive analysis of the malware threat and provides insight into the threat context.
