Put Fileless Attacks on Notice with Falcon’s Advanced Memory Scanning


Fileless attacks like ransomware, APTs, and dual-use tooling are on the rise and especially difficult to combat since many use legitimate, built-in OS tooling. In 2021, 62% of all attacks were malware-free. Because these malware-free or fileless attacks can be carried out entirely in memory, detection can be challenging. But with detection capabilities like advanced memory scanning, fileless attacks can be identified and stopped.

Join CrowdStrike experts Jenny Mankin, Principal Engineer and Alex Smith, Product Manager in this CrowdCast to learn more about:

  • The threat landscape specific to fileless attacks and their trends
  • Techniques on how to detect fileless attacks
  • The important role of Advanced Memory Scanning

A demo showing CrowdStrike Advanced Memory Scanning detections will also be included, you don’t want to miss this!
