Reviewing your hosts and servers is essential to ensure everything is up-to-date. Inspect your hosts to guarantee they have the latest policy and virus definitions for both the hosts and server. Examine the infrastructure for disconnected hosts, as they can pose another point of vulnerability. Regularly monitoring scanning reports, alerts and infection reports is a must to assist with system protection. If a network attack is discovered, monitoring that attack by viewing the Internet shield status of the network is important.

One of the most worrisome and potentially crippling threats to next-generation infrastructures is Advanced Evasion Techniques (AETs), which are being used more and more by cyber criminals because AETs leave no trace to current management and monitoring systems, logs or reports – leaving the devices blind and creating an illusion of continued security. Since their discovery, many companies have not taken the proper security measures to effectively thwart AETs. Still, the threat posed by AETs is real and there are steps that must be taken to protect your environment. This slideshow features nine tips, provided by Stonesoft, to help you secure against AETs.
