What is a Zero Day Threat?
Zero Day threats are vulnerabilities that developers, vendors and end-users aren’t aware of until they’ve been publicly exposed. They are hidden vulnerabilities in your operating systems, applications or network infrastructure. They are called Zero Day Threats because from the moment they become public, until a new patch is released and implemented, your organization is vulnerable.
Once a Zero Day Threat is exposed, it can be exploited by attackers before you have a chance to implement a patch or configure your security tools to detect it. But even before it’s publicly known, the vulnerability may be part of an attacker’s arsenal – as the Shadow Brokers’ exposure of the NSA’s repository of exploits demonstrated.
When Zero Day vulnerabilities are uncovered, vendors scramble to release security patches. But they’re not always fast enough to stop attacks. Even when patches are released, they are often not applied until days or weeks later. Often, if a Zero Day Threat isn’t a considered critical enough, administrators even hold off patching until the next scheduled software release, which can leave organizations exposed for extended periods.
Searching for Evidence of Zero Day Attacks
By definition, it is difficult to protect against Zero Day Attacks. The only way to determine for sure is to go back in time and analyze the related network activity. Otherwise, although you might get lucky and spot indicators of a breach, you won’t know, definitively, how they got in.
Using Network History and Playback™ gives you the ability to go back in time and scan for attacks that might have happened before a patch was implemented or detection rules were deployed. You can rewind to the day in question, drill down to the specifics and then scan for, and identify, the vulnerability. If you find you were breached as a result of a Zero Day Threat, recorded Network History lets you hone in on that breach to see exactly how they got in and what’s been compromised.
Now you can use the security tools you use every day to go back-in-time to look for historical breaches. And should you find a breach has occurred, you can deploy multiple security tools - open-source, custom or commercial applications from our Fusion Partners - onto the EndaceProbe Analytics Platform to look at the event from multiple viewpoints.
Evidence Integrated Into Your Tools
Endace's Fusion Partner Program brings together solutions from leading security and performance analytics vendors which leverage the EndaceProbe's Application Dock hosting, and workflow APIs, to integrate Network History into their applications.
With accurate Network History integrated into their security monitoring tools, SecOps teams have concrete evidence at their fingertips. This accelerates the investigation and resolution of security threats and allows teams to proactively hunt for threats
