Exploits are commonly used in cyber attacks: upwards of 90% of reported data breaches involve an exploit at one or more points in the attack chain. Including exploit prevention as part of a comprehensive lineup of security defenses is clearly valuable.

Almost every major security vendor can claim some level of exploit prevention. However, the breadth and depth of that protection varies significantly between vendors. For some, it’s a box to tick; for others, it’s a major focal point.

Read this paper to learn about 23 exploit techniques that are used by cybercriminals and nation-states, and compare how the mitigations for these techniques vary by vendor.
