October 2014- When cybercrime happens, it is imperative to discover as much as possible about the scope of activity and the entity behind the crime. The right set of data and tools can help unmask hostname and IP address ownership, can highlight connections between nefarious online resources and accelerate your investigation into malicious activity and criminal attribution. Read our Cybercrime Investigation Guide to learn how DNS Intel can help you in developing a suspect profile, mapping associated ...
April 2015- Despite the billions of dollars spent each year on anti-phishing, anti-malware, antianti- spam and other security solutions, threats still find their way into most organizations despite the best efforts of security teams to stop them. In fact, for many organizations the problem is actually getting worse over time. The consequences of these incursions can be severe, and in some extreme cases cause a business to go bankrupt.
April 2015- Breaches at large enterprises grab headlines, but cybercriminals are developing a taste for smaller businesses. The mid-market (companies with 500 to 2,500 employees) is becoming fertile ground for cybercriminals looking to exploit unsuspecting organizations with valuable data to steal and much more to lose.
Recent high-profile data breaches in financial services, retail, healthcare, and other major industries underscore two things for today's organizations: determined cybercriminals are adept at finding and fully exploiting even the smallest security gap, and detection of their activity often comes much too late - and at great cost for the business.
But with almost no purpose-built tools to help analyze security incidents, detect root causes, and unearth larger attacks before adversaries succeed at ...

April 2015- As business becomes more connected and as data moves further outside the organizational walls, the supply chain has become a critical chink in the security armor. This paper examines the insecurity of the small businesses in the supply chain and offers tips to close those backdoors into the enterprise.
April 2015- Did you know that most companies usually find out about the security breach around 200 days after the occurrence (www.securityweek.com)? By that time, their confidential information is all over the web and it takes time and money to bring everything back to normal and regain your customers trust. Read our whitepaper to see why your business needs multiple layers of protection to stay secure.
Vulnerability risk management is a foundational practice in most information security programs today. In fact, nearly half of organizations agree that it is the most accepted method for deterring cybercrime.
Despite its importance, traditional vulnerability risk management programs are failing. The labor-intensive manual task lists, mountains of static scan data, expanding attack surface brought on by new technologies such as mobile, and other inherent challenges are crippling organizations in making the move from ...
In 2014, there were 7,945 security vulnerabilities identified. That is 22 new vulnerabilities a day. Nearly one an hour. While the number does not appear alarming at face value, when you multiply that by the servers, applications and endpoints across the IT environment, the number is staggering.
Making sense out of mountains of threat data is just one of the many challenges organizations face as part of their vulnerability risk management program. So how can organizations ...

These activities are becoming more prevalent, and as a result, the reporting of these activities is also on the rise. Bit9 + Carbon Black reached out to a series of experts to collect their thoughts and advice on dealing with data security incidents or breaches, which included:
- What solutions ...
Businesses need to view security as a process and leverage solutions that can proactively collect data, apply aggregated threat intelligence, reduce the cost and complexity of incident response and evolve, adapt and learn from your investigation.
This eGuide will cover how a continuous approach to response can resolve these challenges and put your organization in a better security posture by proactively preparing for a breach.
January 2015- IT departments were battered by a cyber security perfect storm in 2014. While the security community was still rolling in the wake of the Target breach in late 2013, the continuing parade of breaches in 2014 cast a harsh light on inadequate security architectures and poorly implemented security practices.
The entire security industry has focused in on the newest buzzwords: Threat Intelligence. The term is so broadly used the definition of "intelligence" is sometimes lost. Some services are simply offering access to minimally analyzed (or even raw) data. Learn how to tell what "intelligence" really means and how to differentiate the offerings in this Solutionary white paper.
- Get a clear definition of what intelligence is and the ...
Security is a necessary component in the corporate digital infrastructure. Unfortunately, rallying support behind security initiatives is often easier said than done. By improving mutual understanding of management and analyst perspectives, IT security professionals and non-technical managers can define a smoother process to develop and improve the organization's security infrastructure.
- Understanding internal communication is key to defining a security infrastructure.
- Explore possible thought ...
When IT professionals think about information security, they often think about network intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion protection systems (IPS) early in the process. Network IDS/IPS has long been a mainstay for detecting malicious activity and continues to be a very important piece of the security puzzle. Unfortunately for security professionals, that puzzle continues to evolve and becomes increasingly large and complex.
- Review why advanced detection ...
November 2014- Enterprise security organizations face a daily onslaught of external attacks. According to a recent survey by IBM X-Force and Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Report, 92% of attacks being perpetrated are by outsiders. Because of this, organizations have to focus on how these attacks successfully penetrate their network perimeter security defenses. Many organizations have invested in next generation firewalls (NGFWs) to protect them from network-based attacks.
October 2014- Malicious IPs are a new and growing problem for enterprises. To effectively defend against these malicious IPs, enterprises need to augment their SIEM solutions with real-time predictive threat Intelligence so they can detect attacks from unknown IPs as early as possible and respond to them before they lead to more severe incidents and costly breaches.
November 2014- Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today's threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It's time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions. This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, ...
December 2014- You need to understand the enemy before you can defeat them. As the number and severity of cyber-crimes continues to grow, it's important to understand the steps cyber-criminals take to attack your network, the types of malware they use, and the tools you need to stop them. The basic steps of a cyber attack include reconnaissance (finding vulnerabilities); intrusion (actual penetration of the network); malware insertion (secretly leaving code behind); and cleanup (covering tracks). Malware ...
December 2014- This ebook details the strategies and tools that cybercriminals use to infiltrate your network and how you can stop them. Today's cybercriminals employ several complex techniques to avoid detection as they sneak quietly into corporate networks to steal intellectual property. Their threats are often encoded using multifarious complicated algorithms to evade detection by intrusion prevention systems. Once they have exploited a target, attackers will attempt to download and install malware onto the compromised system. In ...
