January 2015- Ten years ago security breaches were mostly widespread nuisances perpetrated by young script kiddies out for notoriety. Today, they are targeted, sophisticated, and highly damaging. Most are perpetrated by well-funded elements of organized crime, foreign governments, and terrorist groups out for money and a competitive edge. Newer advanced persistent threats (APT's) can penetrate a single victim's network and secretly remain there for months or years, stealing large volumes of valuable proprietary or private customer information.
November 2014- Enterprise security organizations face a daily onslaught of external attacks. According to a recent survey by IBM X-Force and Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Report, 92% of attacks being perpetrated are by outsiders. Because of this, organizations have to focus on how these attacks successfully penetrate their network perimeter security defenses. Many organizations have invested in next generation firewalls (NGFWs) to protect them from network-based attacks.
October 2014- Malicious IPs are a new and growing problem for enterprises. To effectively defend against these malicious IPs, enterprises need to augment their SIEM solutions with real-time predictive threat Intelligence so they can detect attacks from unknown IPs as early as possible and respond to them before they lead to more severe incidents and costly breaches.
November 2014- Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today's threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It's time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, ...

This white paper discusses the malware threat, the potential impact on your business, and ...
December 2014- Protecting data in motion has become a high priority for a growing number of companies. As more companies face the real and growing threat of data theft, along with increased regulatory pressure to protect their data, encryption of data in motion has gone from a "nice to have" technology to a critical budgeted project. However, companies that have deployed IPsec VPNs across their network have discovered that while encryption is a great mode of data ...
Poor network security and inadequate trafﬁc segmentation were chief causes of data breaches in 2013 and 2014, compromising billions of data records costing corporate hacking victims, banks, retailers and credit card issuers billions of dollars to clean up.
In November 2014, Certes Networks worked with Spiceworks and its community of more than 6 million IT professionals to discover how companies across the globe handle data in motion and other IT security issues. The results made one ...

They bypassed firewalls. They hopped network segmentation controls. They implanted malware that sent data to unauthorized locations. They exploited ...
December 2014- You need to understand the enemy before you can defeat them. As the number and severity of cyber-crimes continues to grow, it's important to understand the steps cyber-criminals take to attack your network, the types of malware they use, and the tools you need to stop them. The basic steps of a cyber attack include reconnaissance (finding vulnerabilities); intrusion (actual penetration of the network); malware insertion (secretly leaving code behind); and cleanup (covering tracks). Malware ...
December 2014- This ebook details the strategies and tools that cybercriminals use to infiltrate your network and how you can stop them. Today's cybercriminals employ several complex techniques to avoid detection as they sneak quietly into corporate networks to steal intellectual property. Their threats are often encoded using multifarious complicated algorithms to evade detection by intrusion prevention systems. Once they have exploited a target, attackers will attempt to download and install malware onto the compromised system. In ...

September 2014- Many organizations implement identity and access governance (IAG) as a quick-fix to appease auditors and avoid fines. Such an ad-hoc approach can lead to poorly managed access, which in turn can create big security issues. Instead, a proactive IAG program that answers the question: "Who has access to what, and is it appropriate?" not only appeases auditors, it pleases the CIO by helping to prevent risk from insider attacks. Read this white paper to learn ...
Users seem determined to embrace BYOD even if the IT department doesn't. Yet IT admins know that with mobile devices comes a host of security complications. Some of the most common solutions are very unpopular with users, who aren't willing to give IT control of their personal devices.
It doesn't have to be this way. There are solutions that will let IT have more of the security you need while giving ...
