Download, “Case Study: LivePerson” to gain a ...
April 2013- New vulnerabilities are discovered at a rapid rate, so in order to discover and defend against them, companies conduct vulnerability scanning. However, the frequency and coverage of scans provide increasing challenges for some organizations. Active scanning can be disruptive if conducted excessively, and there are some parts of the network that companies don't feel comfortable scanning at all. In order to address this problem, Skybox Security has introduced what it refers to as its next-generation ...
April 2013- DDoS attacks have become highly organized and more complex, which makes them harder and more dangerous to fight than ever. Unfortunately, according to recent UBM Tech research, many companies remain at risk because they rely on inadequate defenses.
April 2013- There are now millions of malware variations to defend against and hundreds of perpetrators of DDoS attacks. Given the complex nature of today's threats, enterprises can achieve a strategic advantage by employing a new layer of security that is services based. Cloud-based services are an important aspect of this approach to security and provide always-on monitoring without the added expense of buying and maintaining on-premise equipment. Early detection can help manage breach notification and remediation ...
In the wake of the numerous server data breaches reported this year, it is clear that traditional signature-based blacklisting security strategies are inadequate in addressing today's sophisticated cyber threats. Advanced threats are targeting servers to steal valuable corporate intellectual property. These attacks happen fast - in less than 15-20 minutes - and are bypassing traditional security tools.
In this whitepaper, Industry Analyst Frost and Sullivan examines today's advanced threat landscape and recommends that ...
Historically, IT defense has focused largely on the threat. So-called "blacklist" technologies maintain an inventory of specific attack types, and provide defense against each. Today, the volume, variety and sophistication of attacks highlights the limitations of such approaches, as signature databases approach their upper limits and leave exploitable gaps in defense.
These changes in the threat landscape have led many organizations to consider the alternative to a blacklist approach. In contrast to blacklisting ...

Recognizing security defects early in the development cycle have traditionally posed real challenges for developers as current static analysis tools often generate significant false positive results and other major issues. Next generation tools address these issues by integrating static analysis as part of development teams’ normal ‘design, code, test and analysis’ processes. Download, “A Successful SAST Tool Implementation” to learn how these tools can:
Integrate with normal software engineering workflows
Accurately report ...
April 2013- Software security is a top priority for many organizations with many considering how they should integrate security earlier on in the software development lifecycle. A process change like this would benefit organizations in the form of reduction in costs and increased productivity as a result of minimizing flaws and removing defects via software patches. Download, “Enterprise Application Security: Source vs. Binary Code Analysis” to learn about the benefits of Source Code Analysis (SCA) and how ...
If your enterprise uses System z already, it's a safe bet that you're already aware of its legendary security. Being the only commercially available server with an EAL 5 rating is just one reason why so many of the world's top banks, retailers and other businesses that conduct high volumes of critical business transactions use System z.
With features such as cryptographic co-processors and integrated Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) support, System z has arguably ...
March 2013- Many organizations have found themselves drawn to virtualization and cloud computing architectures for the many benefits, only to find that the complexity of ensuring adequate data security was simply too great an obstacle. But the adoption of these technologies is inevitable. By deploying memory-based solutions for distributed database monitoring, enterprises will find that it is not only possible to protect sensitive information in these emerging computing models, but that the same architecture also provides both ...
March 2013- Organizations store their most valuable and sensitive data in their enterprise database, yet a large number of organizations do not engage in the timely installation of vendor patches after those patches have been released by database management system (DBMS) providers, placing that sensitive data at risk. In fact, a 2010 survey by the Independent Oracle Users Group revealed that of the 430 database administrators, consultants, and developers who were surveyed, only 37 percent installed Oracle Critical Patch Updates ...
March 2013- A serious data breach brings monetary damage in its many forms: business disruption, bad publicity, stiff ones for noncompliance, and undermined customer confidence. But most damaging of all is the trouble that it creates when it comes to signing up new customers. A tarnished reputation is a big objection for sales and business development to overcome. That's why data security in general and database security in particular are a crucial part of any company's overall ...
March 2013- Many IT security professionals recognize that advanced persistent threats (APTs) pose a growing risk to their organizations. However, recent UBM Tech research discovered that only a few are taking the necessary steps to combat APTs and protect their organizations. In fact, many appear to have a misplaced sense of confidence in their ability to detect these attacks, even though few have developed strategies for dealing with them. This gap is particularly troubling since security experts ...
Big Data repositories enable enterprises to use large volumes of varied data to make more rapid decisions, but repositories frequently include sensitive data that must be secured. Most Hadoop and NoSQL environments that manipulate Big Data have little to no integrated security.
This technical paper provides an overview of NoSQL Big Data security issues and includes security recommendations that enterprises should consider when securing Big Data environments.

The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the use of email as a vehicle for cyberattacks on organizations and large corporations.
Such attacks have evolved from the simple inclusion of malware as a non-disguised executable file, to more socially engineered "phishing"style attacks, which attempt to persuade the recipient voluntarily provide valid security credentials-often simply by clicking a link that leads to a malicious or fraudulent website. But how can ...
February 2013- Current market solutions are built to protect the enterprise and are too resource intensive for most organizations to manage. Learn about five key components that any risk-based information security solution must include to cost effectively and efficiently protect information and meet regulatory requirements - regardless of industry, organization size or security skill set.

We've all seen the reports about what goes wrong when proper controls are not implemented while storing and transferring data. Large enterprises face messy notifications, customer dissatisfaction and, in many cases large fines. In fact, a data breach in the U.S. comes with an average price tag of $5.5 million, according to a 2011 Ponemon Institute study.
This paper from Imation Mobile Security explains when compliance alone may not offer the protection enterprises need ...
