Check Point: 'Unknown malware' hits enterprise nets 53 times a day

Ellen Messmer | May 9, 2014
Check Point's annual security report says attackers are automating 'unknown malware' generation.

The rise of unknown malware means alternatives to traditional anti-virus protection have to be considered, such as automated malware sandboxing for threat emulation that can check for unknown malware by exploding attachments to discover evidence of malicious code, Check Point notes.

That trend, too, is growing among vendors. Symantec this week launched a security initiative called "Advanced Threat Prevention" in which it says it's partnering with Check Point, in addition to Cisco and Palo Alto Networks, to receive updates around unknown and zero-day malware in order to provide additional defense to its endpoint security products.
