Intelligent Whitelisting: An Introduction to More Effective and Efficient Endpoint Security

Published By: Lumension     Published Date: Jun 05, 2015
The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

Beyond Passwords & Outdated Physical Access Systems

Published By: Entrust Datacard     Published Date: Jan 16, 2015
If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features. This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.

The Final Buying Decision: Integrated Vs. Compatible

Published By: CopiaTECH     Published Date: Mar 18, 2008
Words like “integrated” and “centralized” have been used to describe application software solutions for some years now, often because of marketing messaging that implies more interoperability than the given technology can actually provide to the business customer. The terms are broad enough to be almost meaningless in some instances. In the field of IT security, the sheer range of tools and techniques in the hacker or virus writer’s armory that one must guard against has driven up the number of solutions required to prevent attacks.
