Whitepaper: Preparing an Endpoint Security Strategy to Address Ransomware

by FortinetJul 26, 2021

The threat landscape continues to evolve with evermore sophisticated attacks and evasive techniques. Ransomware is one of the most chilling forms of cyber crime that organizations face today, and it's not going away. FortiGuard Labs reports that there was a sevenfold increase in ransomware activity in December compared to July 2020.

Ransomware can gain access to a system in a number of ways, often with a simple click or even no click at all. And because ransomware is so prevalent, organizations need to be prepared. They need to have strategies in place so they are prepared before, during, and after a ransomware attack. Many mature enterprises already have incident response plans, which should be used. But to reduce the risk and scope of potential incidents, many things also should be done in advance so they understand what to do when in the midst of an attack.

Whitepaper: Take Control of Security Operations with Consolidation and XDR

by FortinetMar 16, 2021

Security teams have many management portals to inspect, and they must manually connect the data from each of them. As a result, teams:

• Respond to alerts slowly
• Have time for fewer investigations
• Risk missing an attack in progress

Effective XDR solutions collect, normalize, and correlate data across security controls, covering multiple attack layers. Improved operational efficiency enables faster threat response.

Research Report: The Promise of XDR for Effective Threat Detection and Response

by FortinetMar 16, 2021

Enterprise Strategy Group surveyed cybersecurity professionals and found threat detection and response efforts are:

• Impeded by manual processes
• Filled with noise and false positives
• Plagued by inefficiency because of multiple point tools

XDR simplifies visualizations of complex attacks, unifying control points, security telemetry, analytics, and operations into one enterprise system.
