The Security Industry's Dirty Little Secret

One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs).

Understanding advanced persistent threats (APTs) and the difference between APTs and AETs will help mitigate the risk to the network and the company.
