After an organization been hacked, reducing the amount of time an APT lives within the environment is paramount.
To get the job done organizations must deploy a methodical approach that includes steps to detect/identify, contain - or perhaps not, and remove/recover from the attack as quickly as possible. But the process can't stop there. Attackers are increasingly creative in their methods of attack. To truly gain an advantage against attackers, security ...
Learn why anti-evasion is a critical component for your intrusion prevention system. Sophisticated exploits that utilize advanced evasion techniques are all too common.
Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are designed to prevent known attack traffic patterns from penetrating systems on the network. But thereΒs an inherent problem with the technology, since it can block only the attacks it sees and is already familiar with. If malicious code is cleverly disguised, it can slip ...

February 2014- Since last fall, several waves of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have targeted major players in the U.S. banking industry. JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and PNC were among the first to sustain intermittent damage. Eventually, the top 50 institutions found themselves in the crosshairs. Websites crashed, customers couldn't connect to make transactions and banks scrambled to get back online- and stay there as long as they could. In the months to come, security experts ...
February 2014- There are over 7,000 DDoS attacks every single day and they can happen to anyone, at any time. In this case study, learn how a business with 95% of revenues generated online was hit by DDoS attacks over a 6-month period, resulting in lost sales and damage to its brand. However, by assessing the threat and using Neustar SiteProtect and UltraDNS solutions, they were able to mitigate and protect their Website from future attacks. Read this case ...
August 2013- The sheer volume of data, the speed at which it is growing and the increasing variety of types of data have given rise to the term big data - data sets whose size or type is beyond the ability of traditional relational databases to capture, manage and process the data quickly and efficiently. Yet it's precisely this type of data that is so important to government today. Big data, mined and analyzed effectively, offers government ...
