FAQ: Can SandBlast Mobile detect lateral movement?

Discussion created by Daniel Dor Employee on May 14, 2017

Network Lateral Movement, or what is more commonly referred to simply as, "Lateral Movement", refers to the techniques cyber attackers, or "threat actors", use to progressively move through a network as they search for the key data and assets that are ultimately the target of their attack campaigns (Network Lateral Movement - Wikipedia)


During static code analysis SandBlast Mobile can identify such a behavior of malware that is trying to replicate itself to other devices and infect them too. Moreover, once unknown (zero-day) malware was identified, it will download the signature to the rest of the devices that run SandBlast Mobile in your organization, so even if the malware is capable of lateral movement and initiating such action all other devices will be protected.
