How Securing Recursive DNS Proactively Protects Your Network

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 2018
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

Protecting Your Network from Malware

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 2018
"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy. One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "

Cylance® vs. Traditional Security Approaches

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Mar 12, 2019
Today’s advanced cyber threats target every computer and mobile device, including enterprise endpoints, especially those that make up critical infrastructure like industrial control systems and embedded devices that control much of our physical world. The modern computing landscape consists of a complex array of physical, mobile, cloud, and virtual computing, creating a vast attack surface. Meanwhile, the cybersecurity industry is prolific with defense-in-depth security technologies, despite a threat landscape that remains highly dynamic, sophisticated, and automated. Cylance, however, takes a unique and innovative approach of using real-time, mathematical, and machine learning threat analysis to solve this problem at the endpoint for organizations, governments, and end-users worldwide.

Threat Intelligence: Cybersecurity’s Best Kept Secret

Published By: CrowdStrike     Published Date: Feb 05, 2018
Learn how cyber threat intelligence (CTI) helps you bolster defenses, hunt down adversaries,investigate incidents and make better security decisions. While once considered a “nice to have”, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now widely considered an essential weapon against breaches. A recent study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 72 percent of organizations plan to increase CTI spending — further validation of its important role in your security strategy. Yet, because threat intelligence comes in many shapes and forms, it is often misunderstood.

DDoS Is the New Spam: 3 Strategies To Turn Catastrophe Into Annoyance

Published By: F5 Networks Inc     Published Date: Aug 16, 2018
As signaling and scrubbing technology evolve (and as your solutions become more and more adaptable), DDoS attacks will become less effective and less attractive to would-be adversaries. The time will soon come when a 1 Tb attack from an IoT botnet will seem like a mere annoyance, rather than a catastrophic event—if you even notice it at all. So how do you get there faster? Plan ahead by designing a defense in-depth DDoS strategy and partner with a trusted security provider to handle the large attacks. Upfront preparation will pay off when the threat of DDoS attacks no longer keeps you up at night.

Game Changing Cyber Defense Strategies

Published By: Fidelis Cybersecurity     Published Date: May 15, 2019
Its the start of a new year and amidst the countless predictions flooding the internet, one things for certain 2019 is shaping up to be the year of cloud adoption. Analysts are expecting that enterprise adoption of cloud will ramp up significantly, but with this migration and the continued adoption of mobile and IoT technologies, the attack surface is changing dramatically and this has major implications for security. Fundamentally, security boundaries extend from on premises infrastructure to cloud service provider environments where perimeters no longer exist. Organizations cannot defend themselves with the same strategies and tactics that applied when it did. In this brave new world of cloud, IoT and mobile technology, organizations must be agile and shift, extend, and evolve their perimeter-based defense practices to those that are more robust. Further, a comprehensive defense in depth approach enables defense of high value assets amidst a more unpredictable cyber security landsca

SANS Institute Research: Cloud Security Defense in Detail if Not in Depth.

Published By: McAfee EMEA     Published Date: Mar 14, 2018
Use of cloud computing services continues to grow rapidly as organizations migrate business applications and data to cloud-based software, platform and infrastructure services. Gartner estimates 2017 will see growth of 18% in spending on public cloud services and that cloud adoption will infuence more than 50% of IT spending through 2020. Deloitte Global predicts that by the end of 2022 more than half of all IT spending will go to IT-as-a-service providers. In the 2016 edition of this survey, 56% of the security professionals responding said limitations on access to collect incident response data and evidence for forensic analysis was a key challenge to securing the cloud. Sixty-two percent said they were concerned about unauthorized access by outsiders, and 59% said they worried about access by other cloud tenants. Of the 10% who reported being breached, half blamed stolen credentials or compromised accounts.

Email Security in a Zero Trust World

Published By: Mimecast     Published Date: Apr 18, 2017
"To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches. Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed. This white paper discusses how: - CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review - IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them - Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email - Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees.
