The State of Real-Time Threat Detection


When attacks on hardware erode the trust we in the software world place on it, new challenges arise that can’t be solved simply by using signature-based detection.

In his latest blog post, Senior R&D Engineer Kyle Lady discusses some of the talks related to threat detection he saw at Black Hat, DEF CON, and USENIX this year. Topics include:

  • Tracking ransomware payments
  • Real-time detection and intelligence feeds
  • An anti-ransomware tool is called ShieldFS, which applies machine learning to operating-system-level file access patterns
  • 3D-printing security concerns
