FireEye,  Inc.  Analyst  Notes

On March 19, 2014, FireEye, Inc. (FireEye) released a report that addresses the approaches businesses need to take in the event of a security breach. According to the Company, the report will serve as a guide for security practitioners to prepare for breaches caused by morphing, dynamic, and zero-day threats and is a collaboration by advanced threat experts from leading security companies. "In today's society, it is imperative for organisations to protect themselves from advanced persistent threats - a task for which legacy products and practices such as anti-virus and IT-only training are not able to fulfill," said Jason Steer, Director of Technology Strategy, FireEye. "The current trend we are seeing is the uniqueness of each attack, with the likes of 67 percent of malware only being used once and at the rate of nearly 1.5 per second on average. For all of us, it is now about identifying if an attacker has access to your systems and eliminating the time those attackers evade detection."

We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
