Sophos reveals why cybercriminals are caught on servers and networks, but detecting their time and point of entry remains a mystery, according to global survey findings

SAN FRANCISCO, RSA Conference 2019 — Marzo 5, 2018 —

Sophos (LSE: SOPH), a global leader in network and endpoint security, today announced Sophos@SPIN, a two-day event featuring keynote presentations, breakout sessions and after party during RSA Conference 2019 on Tuesday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 6. During the Sophos@SPIN event, Sophos security experts and top executives are discussing the evolving threat landscape and how to protect against persistent, advanced attacks. Sophos is demonstrating the latest version of Synchronized Security with its next-generation Intercept X with EDR and XG Firewall endpoint and network solutions.

Sophos@SPIN is showcasing:

  • Key findings from Sophos’ global survey, 7 Uncomfortable Truths of Endpoint Security, which reveals why cybercriminals are most likely to be caught on servers and networks, but detecting their time and point of entry remains a mystery. Twenty percent of IT managers who were victim to one or more cyberattacks last year can’t pinpoint how the attackers gained entry, and 17 percent don’t know how long the threat was in the environment before it was detected. More survey highlights and commentary are available on Sophos’ Press Page and Sophos News 
     
  • The latest techniques used in today’s threat landscape, including findings from the detailed SophosLabs Uncut report, “Gandcrab: Ransomware Deconstructed,” which explains inner workings of this widely distributed ransomware kit and why it is so popular among cybercriminals. Gandcrab is easily accessible on the surface web, but sold from a tiered licensing and commission model on the dark web. For additional information, go to SophosLabs Uncut on Sophos News 
     
  • The SophosLabs Uncut five-part series, “Emotet 101: From Simple Spam Lure to Complex and Destructive Payloads,” which explains the how this multi-faceted malware has become more prevalent and dangerous over time. For additional information, go to SophosLabs Uncut on Sophos News 
     
  • Two days of back-to-back presentations, including:
    • Threat Landscape Trends by Chester Wisniewski, principal research scientist, Sophos
    • In the IT Trenches: Real Stories From the Front Lines of Cyberattacks by Dan Schiappa, chief products officer, Sophos
