Top 10 Security Myths Debunked

Published By: VMware     Published Date: Sep 12, 2019
You’ve heard the stories: a large Internet company exposing all three billion of its customer accounts; a major hotel chain compromising five hundred million customer records; and one of the big-three credit reporting agencies exposing more than 143 million records, leading to a 25 percent loss in value and a $439 million hit. At the time, all of these companies had security mechanisms in place. They had trained professionals on the job. They had invested heavily in protection. But the reality is that no amount of investment in preventative technologies can fully eliminate the threat of savvy attackers, malicious insiders, or inadvertent victims of phishing. Breaches are rising, and so are their cost. In 2018, the average cost of a data breach rose 6.4 percent to $3.86 million, and the cost of a “mega breach,” those defined as losing 1 million to 50 million records, carried especially punishing price tags between $40 million and $350 million.2 Despite increasing investment in security

How Malware and Bots Steal Your Data

Published By: F5 Networks Singapore Pte Ltd     Published Date: Sep 09, 2019
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates. They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹ While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.

Automation's Rising Tide: How to Manage Bots in Today's World

Published By: F5 Networks Singapore Pte Ltd     Published Date: Sep 09, 2019
Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work. Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹ As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

The Next Wave of the Bot-Driven Brute Force Attack

Published By: F5 Networks Singapore Pte Ltd     Published Date: Sep 19, 2019
"Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed- breach world. Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access. These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ

30 minutes to a more secure enterprise

Published By: Cisco Umbrella EMEA     Published Date: Aug 08, 2019
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

Anticipating the Unknowns: Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Benchmark Study

Published By: Cisco EMEA     Published Date: Mar 08, 2019
And then imagine processing power strong enough to make sense of all this data in every language and in every dimension. Unless you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going to have some unknowns in your world. In the world of security, unknown threats exist outside the enterprise in the form of malicious actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware that moves fast and destroys everything it touches. The unknown exists inside the enterprise in the form of insider threat from rogue employees or careless contractors – which was deemed by 24% of our survey respondents to pose the most serious risk to their organizations. The unknown exists in the form of new devices, new cloud applications, and new data. The unknown is what keeps CISOs, what keeps you, up at night – and we know because we asked you.

Cisco Umbrella + Cloudlock

Published By: Cisco EMEA     Published Date: Nov 13, 2017
In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
