As malware increases in sophistication and the number of new variants rises, antivirus (AV) technologies have steadily become less effective at stopping advanced threats to employee endpoints and servers, and security and risk (S&R) professionals have begun to realize this, as evidenced by survey results showing decreased adoption and interest in AV among small and medium-size businesses and enterprises alike.
A growing number of S&R pros are considering replacing their third-party ...
Cloud computing is demonstrating its potential to transform the way IT-based services are delivered to organizations, the journey to cloud is no longer question of "if" but rather "when", and a large number of enterprises have already travelled some way down this path.

May 2014- It's only a matter of time before more organizations experience similar attacks. Why? Because hackers only need to exploit one vulnerability and defenders need to cover all of them. It typically just takes a single user unknowingly clicking on a link and the hacker is in. In addition, hackers spend 100 percent of their time focused on accomplishing the mission while most IT and security teams are tasked with multiple competing priorities, not only defending the ...
May 2014- Microsoft Active Directory (AD) is great for managing Microsoft tools. But in the age of virtualization, cloud, and mobility, you need best-in-class DNS and DHCP management utilities for core network services. That's why 1000's of network teams have added Infoblox DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (DDI) to their Microsoft environment. By doing so, they enhance the availability, manageability, security, and efficiency of their networks. Read this white paper to learn how adding Infoblox DDI ...
May 2014- Despite increased awareness and focus on defending against targeted attacks from both business and security leaders, organizations continue to be breached and suffer the consequences. Many of today's security investments are simply not aligned to defend against these targeted threat vectors. Advanced threat detection and response should not be a point solution but rather a combination of technologies and core competencies. Detecting and responding to advanced threats should involve tight integration of multiple security technologies, ...

March 2014- The primary approaches used to fight cybercrime over the past several years simply aren't effective. Despite losing some of these battles, we can still win the war. However, a new approach is needed. Trusteer, an IBM company, has pioneered a new cybercrime prevention approach that provides unparalleled protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, information-stealing malware, which enable targeted attacks, with no management load for IT staff or disruption to end users.
February 2014- Organizations must take an active role in protecting systems and applications as part of the AQS shared security model. This paper discusses what part of the shared responsibility equation customers are responsible for and recommended practices that help create a security cloud-computing environment.
October 2013- Cybercriminals are leveraging vulnerabilities of the Internet, browsers, operating systems, and applications to secretly and proficiently gain access to corporate information assets. Compromising employee endpoints with malware has become the preferred method; a far simpler path into the corporate network than a direct network attack. Our latest white paper discusses the cybercriminal motives and methods, and presents the need for Enterprises to recognize this growing danger and implement technologies that effectively prevent malware, the root ...
WhiteHat Security's Website Security Statistics Report provides a one-of-a-kind perspective on the state of website security and the issues that organizations must address in order to conduct business online safely.
Website security is an ever-moving target. New website launches are common, new code is released constantly, new Web technologies are created and adopted every day; as a result, new attack techniques are frequently disclosed that can put every online business at risk. In ...
August 2013- Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs and policies empower people to choose the best device to get their work done, including personally-owned consumer smartphones, tablets and laptops. BYOD enables people become more mobile and productive while IT adapts to consumerization in a simple, secure and controlled manner. This white paper provides guidance for selecting technologies and developing policies to introduce a BYOD initiative. Download the white paper
August 2013- IT organizations today face an urgent need to get control over file sync and sharing in the enterprise. To achieve productivity gains people have been adopting ways to easily share files, access them from anywhere and sync them across devices-often exposing the organization to serious security and compliance risks. To address the data access, sync and sharing challenge effectively, this paper presents the top 5 requirements that IT should look for in an enterprise data sync ...
Switching to a new Certificate Authority for your SSL Certificates is not a simple process, but it is not nearly as complicated as your incumbent CA may suggest. The key to success is setting expectations and preparing yourself and others for what's involved, in terms of resources and costs.
This white paper aims to help organisations make an educated choice about their enterprise SSL needs by outlining the key aspects to take into ...

Conventional information security measures, including anti-virus and next-generation firewalls, aren't enough to protect your organization from today's deluge of sophisticated web threats.
That's just one of the key findings in the "Websense® 2013 Threat Report." Based on data collected by the Websense ThreatSeeker® Network, the world's largest and longest-standing security intelligence network, the Report details how advanced threats are specifically targeting mobile devices and social media, and rendering traditional security solutions ineffective.
Today's anti-malware solutions running as applications above the operating system are no match for the stealth techniques used by today's malware developers. Hardware-assisted security products like McAfee Deep Defender take advantage of a "deeper" security footprint.
Researchers discover an average of 2,000 rootkits each day, according to McAfee® Labs™. Rootkits are an increasingly common form of malware built explicitly to hide malicious code. Once installed, a rootkit conceals itself and looks innocent ...
April 2013- Organizations are discovering that effective Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) protection is a critical priority. Without APT protection, organizations are vulnerable to potentially devastating malware attacks that could last for months or years before they're identified.
Recognizing security defects early in the development cycle have traditionally posed real challenges for developers as current static analysis tools often generate significant false positive results and other major issues. Next generation tools address these issues by integrating static analysis as part of development teams’ normal ‘design, code, test and analysis’ processes. Download, “A Successful SAST Tool Implementation” to learn how these tools can:
Integrate with normal software engineering workflows
Accurately report ...
April 2013- Software security is a top priority for many organizations with many considering how they should integrate security earlier on in the software development lifecycle.
