Hackers are creating advanced malware that can evade even the best prevention tools, like antivirus and intrusion prevention systems. These tools will never be 100 percent effective at preventing all threats. Furthermore, they provide no visibility into threats that evade initial detection. This leaves IT security teams blind to the scope of a potential compromise and unable to quickly detect and remediate malware before it causes damage.
