Seculert Javelin is the first inside-out attack simulation and remediation service that allows you to determine how well your secure web gateways (SWG), next-generation firewalls (NGFW), or proxy would do at preventing the latest, real world, malicious malware attacks from succeeding in communicating with their perpetrator’s command and control servers.
Javelin replicates the destination-based communication used by latest, real-world [active-trending] attacks to exfiltrate data. The test takes less than 2 minutes to complete and uses no actual malware.
Javelin also provides a Daily Fix to fill the gaps in gateway performance identified by the attack simulation.

Your web gateway, NGFW, or proxy is designed to protect you from the effects of malware attacks that penetrate your network. But is it? Seculert Labs research consistently reveals that, as a category, gateway solutions miss 40% of malicious outbound communications and allow active attacks to communicate with their perpetrators.
Seculert Labs also found that when a gateway fails to block attack communication it permits a lot of data to escape the network. The average number of successful outbound communications per incident (or infected device) is more than 100.
Measured over time, nearly all of the gateways observed exhibited uneven performance. While most performed well for weeks or months, eventually all showed evidence of being “defeated” by the adversary.To learn how to use the Javelin’s Daily Fix to update your gateway and avoid falling victim to current real world attacks, click here.
In a perfect world it would be possible to identify new attacks in real time before they infect any devices on a large network. In the real world, however, attacks are stealthy and designed to defeat even the most the modern prevention solutions. The attackers have also adopted “low and slow” propagation strategies to make their attacks even harder to detect. The challenge this creates for security teams is how to best complement their prevention strategies with effective containment.
Designers of evasive techniques are intimately familiar with the capabilities (and weaknesses) of current prevention and containment solutions and are using this knowledge to develop a whole new generation of evasive techniques.These types of attacks can only be identified with sophisticated behavioral detection technologies based on superior anti-malware science and machine learning. Seculert Shield is designed to perform exactly this job and provide SOC teams with unique visibility into these techniques and provide the containment tools to stop them.
Santa Clara, Calif. – April 27, 2016 – Seculert, the leader in attack detection and analytics, today announced new findings that 80 percent of secure web gateways installed by Fortune 1000 companies miss 80 percent of malicious outbound..
A best practice for IT security has long been to deploy some form of gateway security, be it a firewall or an intrusion prevention system that is able to block potentially malicious traffic coming into or coming out of a network. But how does an organization know for sure if its security gateway is, in fact, stopping all the bad traffic?view more
