In this three part discussion we break down the latest buzz phrase "Advanced Persistent Threat(APT)".

What is APT and what is the most effective way to combat it. There may be no single answer but following the old adage of defense in depth and the barrier reef concept we take a look at a multifaceted approach to dealing with the problem.

Leveraging the 'Known Bad' with integration to open source intelligence, 'Knowing the Unknown' utilizing new technologies for virtual sandboxing and on the fly reverse engineering, and moving away from pattern based detection towards heuristic and behavioral based analyses we can provide a holistic view into the ever evolving ecosystem of your IT network.
