Will Fileless Malware Push the Antivirus Industry into Oblivion? (HelpNetSecurity)

[svg-table-content]

The death of antivirus has been prophesied for years now, but the AV industry is still alive and kicking. SentinelOne, though, believes that in-memory resident attacks, i.e. fileless malware, just might be the thing that pushes it into oblivion.

They base their conjecture on the results of the attack detections made through over a million of SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform agents, deployed in enterprise environments across the world. These detections are made at the endpoint, i.e. they only include the attacks that were not mitigated by other security technologies before reaching the endpoint.
