Whitepaper: Three Steps to Securing Enterprise Data on Cloud Platforms

by ReliaQuestDec 13, 2019

Cloud Platforms like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform have introduced a new level of flexibility and scalability, but they have also introduced new challenges when it comes to threat monitoring which can leave enterprises vulnerable to attack.

The secret to success starts with understanding the common platform risks inherent in cloud technologies. From threat protection to GDPR compliance, security teams have a lot to consider when configuring their environment for a cloud platform.

Read this whitepaper to learn:

• How to configure your security environment for cloud platform architecture
• How to monitor the cloud through SIEM integration
• How to expand security through Cloud Application Security Brokers (CASBs)

Whitepaper: Top 5 Log Sources You Should Be Ingesting but Probably Aren’t

by ReliaQuestDec 13, 2019

The key to minimizing security threats and maximizing business insights is logging and monitoring all relevant events from across an enterprise IT environment-but some data sources present unique logging challenges, often leaving them unmonitored and vulnerable to attack.

Top 5 Logging Sources You Should Be Ingesting but Probably Aren't offers advice for assessing and improving current logging activities, plus tips for logging of commonly overlooked sources, such as:

• Cloud Platforms
• Databases
• Domain Name Systems (DNS)
• Physical security sources
• Web servers

Whitepaper: Rethinking Security Automation: Six Best Practices to Improve Visibility and Accelerate Response

by ReliaQuestDec 13, 2019

The problem today is that there are too many tools, too little integration among them, and more noise than a team can analyze and understand -- all of which add up to less visibility into threats and less efficient security teams. Automation is supposed to solve the "tool fatigue" problem, surfacing the most critical issues by running playbooks against common threats and freeing up valuable resources for other tasks. However, expectations for automation have outpaced it's capabilities to drastically reduce human intervention in security monitoring.

Download this whitepaper to discover:

• Why organizations have high expectations for automation -- and why they need to revise these expectations
• How the problems of "too many tools" and "too much data" negatively impact data visibility
• How automation, when applied correctly, simplifies security and adds context to threats and workflows

Research Report: 415 Research: Tackling the Visibility Gap

by ReliaQuestDec 13, 2019

Is your security team blind to the activities in more than half of its IT assets?

That was just one of the findings in a new report from 451 Research, based on in-depth interviews with security leaders across 150 large enterprises and focused on the challenges facing their teams. On average, the report found SIEMs were only ingesting logs from 45% of log-producing systems.

This report uncovers the most tangible pain points in security operations -- from managed service providers to alert fatigue -- and the emerging mandate required from people, processes and technology to optimally protect the business from threats.

• Explore the latest data about the challenges inherent in managing security models
• Examine the tools and processes currently used by large enterprise security teams to maintain visibility and improve their IT environment's security posture
• Understand the impact that visibility (or a lack thereof) can have on both security and business operations

Research Report: 2019 ReliaQuest Security Technology Sprawl Report

by ReliaQuestDec 13, 2019

ReliaQuest, a leader in enterprise security, today released the findings of the 2019 ReliaQuest Security Technology Sprawl Report, which reveals how a rapid increase in the number of security tools used by large companies is limiting their return on investment while increasing the risk of cyber threats. The survey of 400 security decision makers at companies with more than 1,000 employees found there is a "security tool tipping point" where the number of cybersecurity solutions becomes overwhelming and increases organizational risk levels. The result is underutilized technology, ineffective use of valuable security resources and overwhelmed and inefficient teams that spend more time trying to manage their wide range of tools that proactively defending against threats.

Key findings include:

• Security teams are deploying more tools than ever
• Teams are struggling to implement the tools
• The burden of tools maintenance compromises threat response
• A majority of enterprises are less secure today as a result of tool sprawl
