What is the NSI approach to detecting Spyware and Malware?
Threats are becoming more prevalent and continue to increase drastically. Our NSI innovations team continues to advance our digital forensic capabilities. Our expert digital forensic specialists can not only detect an attacker that is using spyware or malware but can also conduct a cellular interception analysis and investigation. Where others fall short in only checking for spyware, our team goes above and beyond and ensures all forms of communications into and out of a device is checked thoroughly.
Can Spyware or Malware be detected with anti-virus software?
Anti-virus and anti-malware software and apps can only identify known threats that have already been analysed. These are done by the virus signature being uploaded to their system. What happens when the threat is not known? These are called zero-day attacks. Attackers use this method as an exploit until such time the software and app manufacturer’s end up creating a way to detect them. Spyware or malware can ultimately infect your internal network in a corporate environment.
You must always ensure you have sufficient systems with multiple redundancies in place in case of a system being infected. NSI can assist with designing a cyber and information security architecture to ensure minimal damage is done in the event of an attack.
