Top 10 Advantages of a Proxy Deployment in Conjunction with a Next-Generation Firewall

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Jul 11, 2017
In the fast moving web environment, where hackers frequently change their tactics, a defense-in-depth strategy of deploying the ProxySG in conjunction with an NGFW is essential for providing optimal protection. The ProxySG is engineered to withstand evasion techniques, making it a perfect complement to your NGFW. Its leading web-proxy technology identifies and blocks malicious web content, and its open architecture allows integration with best-of-breed products for an enhanced security posture. These top 10 advantages represent just a few of the reasons why SWG and NGFW technologies are complementary in nature and why enterprises should implement them together for a layered defense against advanced attacks and targeted threats.

Stop Rowing Alone: Integrated Cybersecurity Ecosystems Will Get You Further

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jun 06, 2018
System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

Reduce The Risk Of Insider-Related Data Loss With Intelligent, Integrated Security From IBM

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
An interactive white paper describing how to get smart about insider threat prevention - including how to guard against privileged user breaches, stop data breaches before they take hold, and take advantage of global threat intelligence and third-party collaboration. Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.

No More Chewy Centers: The Zero Trust Model Of Information Security

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption. This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

Threat Hunting for Dummies

Published By: IBM     Published Date: May 04, 2018
A dversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t

Next Generation Security Buyer’s Guide

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Nov 17, 2014
Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile

BDA White Paper - for social

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Apr 08, 2015
Zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats have outstripped the capabilities of traditional security methods that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection. In fact, 100 percent of companies surveyed by Cisco, as part of our Annual Security Report, have connections to domains that are known to host malicious files or services. At the same time, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is accelerating, creating significant opportunities for businesses and attackers alike as more things come online - along with the people, processes, and data that interact with them.

NGFW Requirements for SMBs and Distributed Enterprises

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Feb 16, 2016
The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.

Next-Generation Network Security: A Buyers’ Guide

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jan 15, 2015
Today’s adversaries continue to increase their capabilities faster than the defenses deployed to stop them. Whether they are obfuscating their attacks or hiding malicious code within webpages and other files, they are making it more and more difficult to profile and identify legitimate network traffic. This is especially true in firstgeneration network security devices that restrict protection and policies to ports and protocols.

Protecting Your Website with Always on SSL

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Apr 02, 2015
Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions. But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website. This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On S
