AppSense, a self-proclaimed “leader in endpoint security solutions for the enterprise,” has sponsored a new white paper authored by Kevin Mitnick.

The paper is intended “to help corporate customers minimize the risks associated with sophisticated computer security threats.”

The CEO of AppSense commented on the white paper in a press release. “Most companies do not realize how vulnerable they are to malware attacks, and what they can do to stop them from happening,” Charles Sharland said.

“Based on his first-hand experiences, Kevin Mitnick’s white paper provides great insights into how hackers operate and how organizations can leverage advanced technology to stay a step ahead of hackers and proactively protect their businesses.”

The paper, titled “Mitigating Malware in Userland,” “illustrates detailed insights into a typical computer hacker’s mindset and provides real-life examples of IT security breaches at various corporations.” It also “includes a thorough analysis of various protection technologies and concludes with a Best Practices’ recommendation on how to secure an enterprise from today’s elaborate attackers.”

Mitnick’s opinions were also expressed in the press release. “Today’s hackers are incredibly savvy in their methods, exploiting IT systems to steal sensitive information for financial gain,” Mitnick said.

“These malicious hackers utilize everything from Rootkits, Trojans and Backdoors to infiltrate the corporate network and obtain highly sensitive intelligence. This white paper evaluates technologies such as trusted ownership, white/black lists and digital signatures, and details what IT administrators should do to control user behavior, eliminate hacker attacks and protect systems and vital information.”

The white paper can be accessed for free here.
