Introduction 

Why you need continuous threat detection


350,000 new malware strains everyday
  • Your existing security controls can only block 99.5% of them.
  • That means 1750 new malware attacks every day can bypass your security devices

New malware and virus variants are produced every day. According to AV-TEST Institute, there are over 350,000 new malware samples registered every day. So, you can imagine that if your existing security controls can block 99.5% of the new malware every day, there are still more than 1,750 malware threats that can bypass your security controls and get into your network. Even worse, studies show most threat detection services organizations' have in place are unable to prevent 50% of the new malwares. This is an alarming figure and should serve as a wake-up call for companies to take appropriate action when it comes to advanced threat detection, implementing network traffic analysis tools, and getting the latest and best threat hunting and detection software available.


Given the significant threat malware poses and the number of companies in need of threat detection software and services, many advanced threat detection programs exist today. With so many different programs that claim to combat malware and provide continuous threat detection, it can be overwhelming when deciding which one is the ideal solution for you. Sangfor Continuous Threat Detection is a leading threat detection software with a proven track record in keeping your security devices and network fully protected against all different types of malwares. 

AI Weaponization increases Sophistication

  • AI-Powered Concealment
  • DGA Botnets
  • AI Triggers

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral technology to hackers, especially considering that it can be used to make cyber-attacks much quicker and efficient. In fact, AI is already being utilized to crack passwords a lot quicker. Hackers have figured out how to weaponize AI, making malware more sophisticated. AI-powered concealment allows malware to conceal their malicious payload and bypass security detection. Domain Generation Algorithm (DGA) botnets can dynamically generate new and one-time domain names to connect to Command & Control servers. And AI triggers can now use verification techniques such as facial recognition to identify and attack targets. 

Sandbox Evasion Techniques

Hackers have developed mature technologies to bypass threat hunting and threat detection by anti-virus and anti-malware sandboxes. These sandbox evasion technologies such as delaying execution, hardware detection, CPU detection, user detection, and environment detection are all too common techniques being employed by hackers today. Any of these methods can easily make malicious payloads invisible, fooling the sandbox, and evading detection. Of course, more than one technique is usually built into malware, making it tough to conduct advanced threat detection. 

Security Teams Need to Shift Mindset

Prevention alone cannot stop attacks. Security teams must recognize that new threats require new paradigms and threat detection services to defend against them. Changing their mindset from keeping all attackers out of their network to assuming the hackers are already in their network will help develop more robust strategies to identify and stop attacks before they cause damage.


Understanding mean-time-to-identify (MTTI) and mean-time-to-Response (MTTR) is important. Security events can become breaches if they have months to spread throughout a network.  Security teams need to find and fix any security gaps through threat hunting and detection to reduce MTTI and MTTR; the faster they can find and respond, the less damage a breach will incur.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I detect malware?

With so many different malware programs out there, finding the right one can be tricky. With threat detection services and software still being in high demand, Sangfor Continuous Threat Detection is one of the leading solutions when it comes to threat hunting, threat detection, and network traffic analysis.


How does malware evade detection?

Malware has evolved significantly lately to evade all the threat detection software out there. Some of the ways it does this includes stalling delays, intelligent suspension, and fragmentation. With many more ways to avoid detection, the need for threat detection services and network traffic analysis tools has never been higher.


Why is AI being weaponized?

AI weaponization has become a serious concern when it comes to cyber security and threat detection as it enables hackers to commit a greater number of attacks at a quicker rate. Having the right threat detection software and services is crucial to combating this growing issue. However, many companies must implement the necessary changes for advanced threat detection to be protected from an increasing number of sophisticated cyber-attacks.
