August 2013- Cloud adoption is an evolutionary process that has been leading to hybrid clouds-specifically, open hybrid clouds that provide for portability of applications and data. This new model means avoiding new points of proprietary lock-in and new silos, and breaking from proprietary software and hardware. It demands that organizations make a smooth transition from one model to another, while valuing both types of workloads equally.
Today's anti-malware solutions running as applications above the operating system are no match for the stealth techniques used by today's malware developers. Hardware-assisted security products like McAfee Deep Defender take advantage of a "deeper" security footprint.
Researchers discover an average of 2,000 rootkits each day, according to McAfee® Labs™. Rootkits are an increasingly common form of malware built explicitly to hide malicious code. Once installed, a rootkit conceals itself and looks innocent ...
April 2013- Our inability to share information about how we are being attacked, and who is launching those attacks, leaves us at a disadvantage. Sharing threat intelligence is the first step to changing the dynamics of this situation.
April 2013- This guide is intended to provide a technical audience the core information necessary to evaluate the security controls essential to establishing a Security Operation Center (SOC).
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 ...
Organizations struggle to realize benefits of next-generation firewalls
Learn what IT professionals had to say about adopting and migrating to next-generation firewalls at their organizations, including adoption drivers, priorities, and the challenges they encounter.
The Skybox Security Next-Generation Firewall Survey 2012, conducted in conjunction with Osterman Research, polled more than 200 respondents worldwide in varying information security and C-level roles involved in the IT decision making process.
Among the findings:
Vulnerability scanning, or the process of identifying a list of known security gaps in the network environment, is the focal point for most enterprise vulnerability management programs. Before any action can be taken to assess risks or prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation – you have to know the extent of your vulnerability challenge.
The use of vulnerability scanners as security assessment tools is nearly ubiquitous in large organizations. Regular network scans are recommended by security ...
Survey reveals pitfalls of traditional vulnerability scanners
Learn what IT professionals had to say about vulnerability management programs at their organizations, including how often and what zones they scan, and the challenges they encounter.

Among the findings:
To stay productive, mobile workers want access to the same data they have in the office-including data stored in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems such as Microsoft® SharePoint.
When users discover that SharePoint data can't be accessed easily on tablets and smartphones, they often work around corporate IT departments (and corporate IT security policies), and post files to a variety of cloud file sharing services. But these file-sharing services represent a significant security ...
The tremendous scalability, flexibility, and speed of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) make it one of the fastest-growing sectors of the cloud computing markets. IaaS providers combine virtualization technologies with massive infrastructure to deliver bandwidth, storage, and CPU power on-demand and with granular control over scale and costs. The potential benefits of hosting applications and workloads on cloud servers are enormous, making cloud servers the de facto norm for a rapidly growing set of use cases.
Cloud computing has sparked a huge trend in rapid-fire application development and dynamic, elastic application hosting. Desires for cloud-based delivery and the emergence of software-defined infrastructure have caused developers, technology operations and security functions to converge
These cross-functional cloud teams are responsible for securing the servers and applications under their care. PCI compliance is a very common demand, one that presents special challenges in the cloud.
This white paper provides cloud ...
