Employees feel more empowered than ever to use any application they believe will help them do their job. And attackers are taking advantage of the sheer volume of applications, the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend, social media and other opportunities to glean information and penetrate networks.
How do you encourage productivity and minimize risks?
Application control is key.

July 2012- The risks of malware analysis are easily surmountable through the use of an automated dynamic malware analysis platform such as Norman's Malware Analyzer G2 (MAG2). MAG2 provides additional benefits to analysts in their fight against a constantly growing and maturing malware threat landscape. To learn more about Norman?s Malware Analyzer G2 defense-in-depth strategy see the Norman Automated Malware Analysis Whitepaper.
Today's targeted threats are often multi-vectored and exploit unknown vulnerabilities - their sophistication defying typical signature-only based inspection. Whether APTs or client-side threats, they use evasive techniques to penetrate our organizations, often purporting to be or riding on applications and exploiting trust relationships with which we've grown all too comfortable with.
To make matters worse, attackers have realized the inadequacies of traditional signature-based approaches and have accelerated the pace of change and obfuscated ...
A Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) offers a logical and essential progression of capabilities needed to protect networks from emerging threats. Pioneered by Sourcefire®, and now endorsed by Gartner, the NGIPS builds on typical IPS solutions by providing contextual awareness - about network activity, systems and applications, people, and more - to promptly assess threats, ensure a consistent and appropriate response, and reduce an organization?s security expenditures.

January 2012- The cloud computing model is being adopted by many organizations because of it's efficiency, performance and cost benefits. But some organizations may be shying away from cloud because of security concerns. Read this data sheet from IBM to learn about services from IBM that can help you secure your cloud computing solutions. Discover how IBM experts can guide you through the security and privacy concerns, help identify and prioritize security requirements, and develop a high-level ...
Every security professional knows that syslog is the main protocol for security. And most Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems frame this as the singular way of collecting log data. For today?s security professional, syslog protocol dominates, and is almost always synonymous with logging.
However, SIEM is really more about security information of all types. It is also about event detection and management from multiple data sources, not just syslog fi ...
October 2011- Today, collecting email data is a necessity for compliance standards, forensic analysis and managing end-user performance and availability. But making sense of the data is a challenge within itself. Collecting the data is only part of the equation and research and many shops are turning towards correlation which helps bring meaning to the massive amount of data collected. This white paper explains how to establish a systematic approach to identifying relationships (correlating!) between log data ...
October 2011- This white paper provides a detailed discussion of objectives and methodologies for integrating CorreLog software with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software. This document also describes the features and capabilities of the implementation, intended as a top-level description of how to add CorreLog's Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) functions with the ePO software system, to create a single unified system.
August 2011- NETGEAR delivers simple solutions that help IT organizations create elegant, full-featured data protection without breaking IT budgets.
August 2011- SMBs can achieve the same virtualization results as big companies on a more appropriate scale, using products and services that are available in the right size and price point. While larger firms have traditionally created lower-end products for smaller businesses, there is an inherent conflict of interest that may doom the products to weakness or premature irrelevance.
Back up and store data for less (and in minutes, not hours!)

• Make ReadyNAS and Acronis Backup & Recovery work together
• Validate backup and recovery vaults
Inappropriate usage, including questionable or risky behavior, can be attributed to the nonchalant attitude many employees have toward their employers' equipment. Many employees proceed throughout the Internet with the belief that since it is not their computer they are using, security is not important.
Similarly, many users in small to midsize organizations assume that security is the responsibility of IT, so risky behavior will not have any direct negative impact. Discover how to ...
August 2011- Putting premium malware protection at the network gateway and on every endpoint of your network enables the IT infrastructure to be able to detect when malware is being delivered, and block and neutralize that malware before it can perform malicious activities.
Discover the secrets over-priced security consultants don't want you to know. Network security is not just about preventing a breach, it's about making every working day as productive as possible by preventing external threats.
Where should you start? Download this security brief and NETGEAR will show you the 8 things to do to improve your security posture right now.
As the size, frequency and complexity of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks increase, data center security and availability are quickly becoming top business concerns. Yet, traditional security products such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are inadequate when it comes to stopping today's complex, multi-faceted DDoS attacks.
Arbor Networks, a leading network security company, recently introduced the Pravail - Availability Protection System (APS) - focused specifically on securing enterprises and the ...
As the size, frequency and complexity of DDoS attacks increase, security and availability are quickly becoming top business concerns. Yet, traditional security products such as firewalls or intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are inadequate when it comes to stopping today's volumetric and application-layer DDoS attacks. The solution? A layered Intelligent DDoS Mitigation System (IDMS).
This paper examines some of the latest DDoS attack trends and provides service providers with best practices for delivering layered ...
Organizations must confront the reality that insider attacks are a significant threat and increasing in complexity. Given that so much of an organization's assets and information are online and accessible, organizations must take a proactive approach to defending against the insider attack.
This proactive attack should involve a range of solutions that address identity and access management and information protection. Nothing can completely prevent all insider attacks, but those who adopt an aggressive ...

January 2011- Today’s CISOs face more challenges than ever, including increased and more sophisticated threats, complex IT environments, decreased budgets, and greater compliance pressures. But these challenges present opportunity. Learn how CISOs can play these challenges to their advantage to meet both data protection and compliance demands.
Many organizations today are so compliance-focused that they take a bare minimum security approach to securing the organization's sensitive data. They simply purchase an SIEM and/or log management solution and view that as sufficient. What they're really doing is making sure they can check a compliance checkbox for regulations and standards like PCI, ISO 27001, NERC, and others that have log management or SIEM-related requirements. In reality, they're neither truly compliant nor secure.
January 2011- Gaining a basic understanding of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a critical first step for PCI compliance efforts.
