Whitepaper: Adaptive Behavior-Based Malware Protection

by Symantec/VeriSignOct 29, 2012

A new generation of customized, tightly targeted, and byte-level obfuscated malicious code (malware) disguises its appearance to evade reactive security measures of all kinds, specifically signature-based antivirus solutions. But while each new instance in a malware "family" may appear different, its behavior can't be disguised.

This paper covers the benefits of Symantec SONAR technology and how it takes advantage of this weakness to create a new, final line of defense against even sophisticated, highly obfuscated malware.

Learn why IT organizations should carefully consider upgrading their IT security solutions to include SONAR protection.

Whitepaper: Choosing a Cloud Hosting Provider with Confidence

by Symantec/VeriSignJan 10, 2012

Symantec SSL Certificates Provide a Secure Bridge to Trusted Cloud Hosting Providers

Cloud computing is rapidly transforming the IT landscape, and the conversation around adopting cloud technology has progressed from "if" to "when." Enterprises are showing strong interest in outsourced ("public") cloud offerings that can help them reduce costs and increase business agility. These cloud services offer enormous economic benefits but they also pose significant potential risks for enterprises that must safeguard corporate information assets while complying with a myriad of industry and government regulations.

Many cloud service providers can deliver the security that enterprises need and SSL (secure sockets layer) certificates are part of the solution. More specifically, SSL is the solution for securing data when it is in motion. The goal of this white paper is to help enterprises make pragmatic decisions about where and when to use cloud solutions by outlining specific issues that enterprises should raise with hosting providers before selecting a vendor, and by highlighting the ways in which SSL from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) can help enterprises conduct business in the cloud with confidence.

Whitepaper: Getting Ahead of the Compliance Curve

by Symantec/VeriSignMay 07, 2012

Compliance is a fast-moving target, and it's getting harder to keep up. In a survey by IT Policy Compliance Group, a consortium dedicated to helping IT security professionals meet policy and compliance goals, 70 percent of all respondents reported being subject to multiple regulatory compliance mandates, as well as contractual obligations and industry standards.

Meanwhile, IT budgets are getting leaner as organizations strive to increase cost efficiency in tough economic times, and the emergence of cloud-based services has increased the complexity of compliance management. Given these challenges and tight deadlines, many organizations are addressing compliance requirements in silos using a "checklist" approach.

Unfortunately, this tactical, reactive approach can lead to higher compliance costs, more audit deficiencies, greater business downtime, and increased risk of data loss. To avoid this trap and get ahead of the compliance curve, organizations need solutions that can help them take a more proactive approach and plan for - instead of reacting to - the rapidly changing compliance environment.
