Malware protection – reduction of the contact surface

Detect, control and prevent malicious software with advanced IT security solutions

Due to the enormous variety of malicious programs and the constant and rapid development of new threats – so-called unique samples – companies and organizations face challenges that should not be underestimated. You can only overcome these challenges with a great deal of work and time and with the help of innovative malware protection. The central goal is to develop and implement a holistic and customized IT security concept that protects systems and content from any kind of malware.

Cyber attacks by malware are becoming increasingly better camouflaged and are today more treacherous than ever. These are computer programs that aim to perform malicious functions that are undesirable for the user. Malware uses sophisticated methods and tricks of all kinds to attack organizations. They install specially tailored, sophisticated malware that can go undetected for a long time. Reason enough to come up with a holistic malware protection strategy.

Such malware attacks are undertaken by cyber criminals who attack the cybersecurity of individual users with highly invasive tools. Malware is used in a wide variety of forms for this purpose: viruses, worms, ransomware, Trojans, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) or Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are just some of them. Effective malware protection is therefore a must.

How does a malware attack work?

Cybercriminals use malicious software and programs that are installed on a third-party's device without their knowledge in order to gain access to sensitive information and data or to damage the end device – usually with the aim to extort money. The various types of malware include viruses, spyware, ransomware and Trojans.

What damage can malware cause?

For example, malware can cause a rather insignificant increase in outbound traffic (when a computer is infected by a Trojan that sends spam). Malware can also cause more serious damage, such as a complete network breakdown or loss of highly sensitive data.

How can you protect yourself from malware?

Cyber security solutions and vigilant employees provide the best protection against malware. It is often distributed by email, which has a similar effect to notifications from known companies and senders. However, vigilance against this type of phishing alone is not enough to protect against malware; organizations need additional cyber security measures such as a dedicated security browser and a web application firewall.
