30-Minute Security How-To: Detect Web Shells

On-Demand Webinar

Web shells are a common tactic to obtain persistence during network intrusions. On average, Microsoft detects 140,000 web shells per month — that’s double last year’s average of 77,000. 

Web shells often fly under the radar for extended periods of time before the attack executes. In the infamous Equifax breach, for example, web shells popped onto a server and retained access for two months.

Fortunately, you don’t need a large IT or security team to make some quick wins when it comes to web shell detection. Join Brian Laskowski, Incident Detection Engineer, and Erica Mixon, Content Marketing Manager, as they discuss low-cost methods to detect web shells before they impact your environment. 

In this webinar, they’ll cover:

  • Low-cost tools you’ll need in your arsenal for effective web shell detection
  • How to detect web shell activity at each stage: creation, usage, and interaction
  • Investigation techniques to uncover vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in your environment 

This interactive, conversational-style session encourages questions and engagement with viewers – so sign up today for access to our security experts.
