Gone are the days when corporate network security could rely on a WAN gateway firewall and control of physical access. The increasing use of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) means threats can enter via your employees' personal devices.
A 2013 Ovum employee study shows that over sixty percent of employees bring their own devices to work and access corporate resources with them. Whilst BYOD brings numerous advantages, the Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report calculates the average cost of ...

April 2014- Learn the four key reasons why traditional manual and fragmented malware analysis processes are actually increasing overall business risk today, and why previous malware analysis options are inadequate given the realities of today's advanced threat landscape.
April 2014- Malware authors are clever and persistent. More than 200,000 new malware samples are uncovered every day.1 And new malware attacks are often successful: 90% of companies reported a security breach in the last 24 months, according to the 2013 Ponemon Report. Layered defenses can block the "known bad," but malware continues to slip through. Today, you must also analyze and defend against "unknown" files and URLs with dynamic sandboxing. It's the only way to methodically unmask zero-day exploits, advanced ...
April 2014- Mobile security is more than protecting the device. It is protecting applications on the device and preventing data leakage in the enterprise. IBM Security AppScan helps determine vulnerabilities early in the application development cycle to eliminate vulnerabilities malware can exploit.

March 2014- Comparing next-generation firewalls can be a daunting task. Although next-generation firewalls (NGFW) are a hot topic, many vendors vary in their description of exactly what constitutes an NGFW. Essentially it's about moving beyond basic ports and protocols to inspecting data at a deeper level to control users and applications. So how do you compare next-gen firewall and UTM solution providers like Sophos, WatchGuard, SonicWALL, Fortinet and Check Point? Download this buyers guide and find out!<...
Remote and roaming workers are constantly checking email, downloading data, and staying productive. Results are their top priority-security is not. IT organizations need to keep up with these high-performers to update their security software and scan their systems for viruses without reducing their productivity.
So how can you empower remote and roaming employees with the tools they need, while still protecting your computing resources and proprietary data-without busting the budget or hiring an ...
Full-disk encryption is rapidly becoming a standard security solution, like antivirus or spam filters-a trend further accelerated by widespread use of Microsoft BitLocker. However, to support the flexibility of your workers today, full-disk encryption is not enough to prevent data loss. Your users are no longer confined to the office by their technology and their PCs, and work has become a thing people do rather than a place they go to.

The threat landscape is changing, or is it?
Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years-social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones.
Virtualization promises to reduce operational costs, simplify management and increase availability of servers and virtual desktops. But how do you protect virtual machines from malware without compromising the performance and convenience that you expect from your investment in virtualization?

When an organization has been compromised, some of the first questions to ask are critical:
•Which systems can I trust?
•What was done to compromise my systems or data?
•How quickly can I figure out where I stand?
Tripwire is often called in after the fact to help answer these questions, even if the breached organization was not monitoring their systems with Tripwire technology. The following ...
May 2012- Organizations have traditionally viewed vulnerability scanners as a tactical product, largely commoditized, and only providing value around audit time. How useful is a 100-page vulnerability report to an operations person trying to figure out what to fix next? But the tide is definitely turning?there is now a clear shift from a largely compliance-driven orientation to a more security-centric view. It?s widely acknowledged that compliance provides a low bar for security, and it just ...
