Security & Risk professionals recognize the value and benefits of implementing an employee-monitoring program. Privacy advocates and Legal and Human Resources professionals see potentially unwarranted invasion of employee privacy as reasons not to monitor, or at least to restrict monitoring to instances where enough "probable cause" exists to warrant tilting the balance between the privacy of an employee and the interests of the company.
In this whitepaper you will learn how to assist company ...
Unified threat management (UTM) systems are among the most widely used tools in the information security arsenal. The concept of unified threat management is very appealing: multiple critical security technologies, integrated on a single platform, provided by a single vendor. But the process of evaluating UTM options is not simple.
This guide covers the key factors you should consider when evaluating UTM and Next Gen Firewall solutions.
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.
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 ...
In almost every year since 2000, the Internet Crime Complaint Center has reported an increase in cybersecurity crime reports by individuals and organizations. Over the last dozen years, the number of attacks reported in the United States seems to grow consistently over time. After examining this trend, the question arises: Is there anything an organization can do to stop these attacks from occurring and protect their critical information systems from intruders?
Business leaders need ...

March 2014- Last year we offered our thoughts on buying Endpoint Security Management offerings - including patching, configuration, device control, and file integrity monitoring - which are increasingly bundled in suites to simplify management. In this updated and revised 2014 Endpoint Security Buyer's Guide we update our research on the management functions described last year and add coverage of antimalware, mobility, and BYOD. All very timely and relevant topics. The goal of this guide remains to provide clear ...
March 2014- Memory injections are on the rise. And traditional endpoint security tools can do little to stop them. Here's what you need to know about memory-based attacks-and how to effectively protect against them.
March 2014- Corporate economic concerns have put increased pressure on already limited IT resources in recent years as the onslaught of malware and sophistication of cyber attacks continues to grow at exponential rates. As a result, 50% of endpoint operating costs are directly attributable to malware, yet corporate IT budgets are still focused on maintaining stand alone antivirus as the keystone in endpoint security. In this paper, we will benchmark the effectiveness of standalone AV and O/S ...
