Security professionals are living in a time of rapid and fundamental change. Computing and delivery models, user platforms and devices, and security threats have changed radically in recent years. However, in many ways, the security technologies and approaches employed by many organizations have remained relatively static, sometimes leading to disastrous results. To gain a picture of how organizations are contending with the changing technology and security landscape, SafeNet undertook an extensive survey.
Third-party applications, including open source software (OSS), make up an increasing proportion
of enterprise applications. By some estimates, up to 80 percent of the source code in many new
commercial applications is open source. It is easy to understand why. OSS allows developers to
build applications faster, adding functionality without writing source code from scratch. Open source
communities provide new features, shortening time to market and helping organizations gain
Open source can ...
We'll explore some of the most common security vulnerabilities currently plaguing the software development industry, and present different ways in which Static Code Analysis, or SCA, can detect them.
In this paper, we'll:
• Provide a detailed description of the weakness
• Show how it presents itself to the end user and the developer
• Explain mitigation strategies to help resolve each issue.

With all the excitement surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT), there is the potential for a gold rush
mentality to bring products based on embedded software to market.
Unfortunately, security may suffer. This paper will discuss the top security issues in software development for embedded devices.
For years, developers have known that one of the best ways to reassure users is by signing code using a digital signature accessed via a private key issued by a respected certificate authority. But signed code is not invulnerable. Due to lax key security and vetting processes, malware has managed to infiltrate applications with signed code.
Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates help to halt malware infiltration by requiring a rigorous vetting process ...
January 2015- The explosive growth of the mobile apps market presents a tremendous opportunity for software developers and cybercriminals alike. Infected apps are not only a threat to mobile device users, but also to network and platform providers, device manufacturers, and the reputation of the industry as a whole. Fortunately, developers can protect their code - and their customers - with a straightforward and easy-to-manage technology: code signing certificates. This white paper details the rise of mobile ...
January 2015- The malware threat and resulting lack of confidence on the part of online users puts software developers and other companies that rely on software downloads at risk. Code signing is an industry-recommended and widely-used defense against tampering, corruption, or malware infection in software code, armed with a powerful method to both identify code and assure the identity of the code signer. This white paper discusses the malware threat, the potential impact on your business, and ...
January 2015- Download Protecting Android Applications with Secure Code Signing Certificates and learn the value of secure code signing practices for building more secure Android apps as well as how these certificates play a key role in helping developers enhance the safety of their applications, their users, and their reputations.
December 2014- This new IDG survey reveals optimism about the ability of next-generation firewalls to help IT balance productivity and security. With two issues becoming increasingly crucial, IT faces conflicting mandates from the business. On one hand, employees demand access from devices beyond the firewall-smartphones, tablets, home PCs and laptops. On the other hand, risk management dictates corporate data must remain protected. The overarching challenge: balance productivity and security. Within that mandate, however, lie several other challenges, ...
December 2014- Promise Healthcare needed to improve security and achieve HIPAA compliance. They were in need of a solution that would deliver a deeper level of network protection and security services without compromising network performance.

The new firewalls provide robust security services that protect its patients, doctors, nurses and staff and comply with all HIPAA regulations. In addition, the implementation of Dell SonicWALL GMS has allowed ...
November 2014- Learn the four key areas that organizations should focus on to achieve intelligence-driven threat detection and response.
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 ...
November 2014- Admins must achieve and prove IT compliance and security, support Active Directory (AD) migrations, and report on the configuration of AD, Windows file servers and SQL servers across their enterprise. Using a manual approach to tackle these challenges introduces the risk of security breaches and compliance failures. Discover how admins can easily identify and report on who has access to what files, folders and shares - and on what servers. Plus, learn about a scalable, ...
November 2014- The ubiquity of Active Directory (AD), the rapid adoption of virtualization and the tight integration between these technologies has given rise to today's modern AD virtualized infrastructure. Read this helpful report to explore the interdependent and combined security issues between AD and virtualization. Plus, learn how to identify and manage these risks.
November 2014- Learn why a Dell SonicWALL next-gen firewall earned the "Recommended" rating from NSS Labs for the third consecutive year in one of the industry's most comprehensive, real-world tests of firewalls, and how it earned a top score for security effectiveness.
How do you control access to your company's most sensitive data? Do your privileged users have unchecked accessibility?
Every week brings new stories of companies damaged by the breach of sensitive information, a problem that can be prevented by identity-centric best practices.
