Packet-Based Security Forensics A Next-Generation Approach To Attack Remediation

Published By: Viavi Solutions     Published Date: Apr 14, 2017
Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success. This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.

A Proven Security Intelligence Model for Combating Cyber Threats: A Reference Model for IT Security

Published By: LogRhythm     Published Date: Aug 08, 2016
IT environments have become much more vulnerable as enterprise mobility, cloud services and “bring-your-own-everything” have broken down the defensible perimeter and added layers of complexity to securing the enterprise. At the same time, the nature of cyber threats has changed dramatically. Threat actors are well organized and well funded, and many of them are known to be supported by nation states. They have sophisticated technical skills which allow these actors to create custom malware for very specific targets, and they are relentless in pursuit of their objectives. Moreover, almost anyone with a malicious intent can purchase malware and rent botnets on the Dark Web, lowering the bar for criminal entities, nation states, and terrorists to use cyber as a weapon of choice towards their intended purpose.

The Spam-ish Inquisition: Saving Time and Energy on Junk Mail

Published By: ESET     Published Date: Jan 30, 2008
Spam looks like a simple enough issue until you have to try to define it: after all, we all think we know it when we see it. Most people have a working definition along the lines of “email I don’t want.” While that’s perfectly understandable, it is difficult to implement technical solutions based on such a subjective definition. Read this paper to learn why SPAM is more than just unwanted email.

Heuristics Analysis: Detecting Unknown Viruses

Published By: ESET     Published Date: Jan 30, 2008
Anti-virus does much more than reactively detect known viruses; it proactively scans for unknown ones too. So, how do scanners really work? The aim of this paper is to reduce some of the confusion around the workings of AV technology, and to clarify what is realistic to expect from AV protection, particularly heuristic analysis.

Surviving a Software Audit: A How To Guide

Published By: CDW     Published Date: Feb 24, 2015
Software piracy, whether accidental or malicious, is a problem for software vendors as these activities can directly affect the bottom line. Organizations that use software are affected as well. Along with rising software prices, they can face stiff fines and other costs for noncompliance with software licenses. This can come as a result of an audit that software vendors are more inclined to initiate in a lackluster economy. This white paper will discuss actions to take before, during and after an audit. As well as outline the best ways for the enterprise to remain compliant with software licenses.

Seven Key Features to Help You Stop Advanced Evasion Techniques at the Firewall

Published By: Intel Security     Published Date: Jan 20, 2015
Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.

Securing Endpoints Against The Next Generation of Attacks

Published By: CDW-Trend Micro     Published Date: Mar 26, 2015
In today’s ‘always on, always connected’ world where sensitive data is almost certain to be stored electronically, organizations can no longer afford to operate without some form of Endpoint Protection. The costs related to network downtime or stolen data resulting from malicious attacks significantly outweighs that of maintaining an up to date solution. Although the unified nature of Endpoint Protection has made extensive security functionality easier to manage, selecting the right products can be a difficult task. This whitepaper aims to explain how the core functionality of Enterprise Protection suites have developed, what to look for in a solution, and which technologies will need to be considered in the future. In today’s business environment, it is no longer a question of whether to invest in Endpoint Protection, but a question of which solution is right for your organization.

Implementing an effective disaster recovery strategy for your data

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Oct 12, 2018
Safeguarding your data is more important than ever. In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability. With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to

Benefits of Machine Learning

Published By: Cyphort     Published Date: Jun 28, 2016
Computer viruses have plagued personal computers since the original Brain virus began infecting boot sectors in 1986. Originally, these early viruses were annoying, but fundamentally benign in nature. However, once the initial concept of malicious propagating code became established, the actors creating viruses became more sophisticated in their approach. Ultimately, the results of a successful infection were more significant and the impact on an enterprise more severe.
