Whitepaper: When to Partner with a Managed Security Services Provider

by Dell SecureWorksAug 24, 2015

The information technology landscape is ever changing, which makes securing and monitoring IT networks more challenging. Today's threat actors are more organized and extremely well-funded. They have the time and the resources to study their targets and plan their attacks. It's no longer a matter of "if" but "when" an attack will occur.

From a security perspective, most large and small organizations struggle to fully understand their cyber vulnerability footprint in relation to their network infrastructure, and many lack the ability to find, train, and maintain a staff with the expertise to rapidly detect an intrusion or thwart a sophisticated cyber-attack. Decision makers have reached a crossroads: should they follow the conventional wisdom that certain security information management (SIM) functions should continue to be managed internally, or entrust an experienced third-party vendor to focus on protecting their networks and data assets 24/7/365?

Whitepaper: Eliminating the Blind Spot-Rapidly detect and respond to the advanced and evasive threat

by Dell SecureWorksJun 01, 2015

Recent survey results tell us that 60% of security personnel believe the severity and 49% believe the prevalence of advanced and evasive threats is on the rise, leaving most enterprises with one or more operational blind spots that lead to longer threat actor "dwell times." With 65% of respondents saying attacks have evaded preventative security controls, the techniques used by threat actors to penetrate traditional cybersecurity defenses continues to get more sophisticated. In this paper we will explore how to eliminate blind spots by combining advanced network and endpoint detection technology with the right people, process and intelligence for greater organizational visibility to detect, investigate and eradicate the advanced and evasive threat.

The study surveyed 1,825 IT management and security practitioners in North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA), Asia, Pacific, Japan (APJ) and Latin America (LATAM) in a total of 42 countries. All respondents were involved to some degree in securing or overseeing the security of their organizations' information systems or IT infrastructure. The full report reveals challenges with today's approach to security spending and investments and highlights key findings in overall expenditures, the budgeting process, where spending takes place and the misalignment between budgets and areas of greatest risk.

Whitepaper: Outmaneuvering Advanced and Evasive Malware Threats

by Dell SecureWorksJun 01, 2015

Highly targeted attacks that use specially modified malware are challenging businesses of all sizes. Wielded by threat actors intent on stealing trade secrets, intellectual property and other high-value data, these attacks evade detection by traditional security controls and even some sandboxing technologies built to dynamically analyze malware. Combatting these attacks consumes significant amounts of remediation time and security budgets. Security teams need to rethink their people-process-technology mixes and strengthen them to defeat these new threats, which are on the upswing. A new approach - an innovative combination of threat intelligence and next-generation sandboxing - can help businesses enhance their security postures to outsmart and outmaneuver attackers.
