Network Security consists of the provisions made in an underlying computer network infrastructure, policies adopted by the network administrator to protect the network and the network-accessible resources from unauthorized access and the effectiveness (or lack) of these measures combined together.
This paper outlines the essential requirements for file sharing across a wide-area network (WAN), and briefly discusses the limitations of appliance-based WAN optimization when applied specifically to document collaboration. The paper uses a solution analysis to compare common business needs to required features, and explains how appliance-based optimization falls short of these needs. The paper then describes how Globalscape's software-only solution. (WAFS) provides file replication and collaboration across globally dispersed networks, securely and reliably, with the performance of local file sharing.
Cybercriminals today are launching attacks against businesses by copying sophisticated malware and techniques used to target governments and high-profile organizations. Don’t get caught in the crossfire. Read our special report "Who's spying on you?"
Kaspersky Lab experts are releasing new research designed to assist you in your cyber security business decisions. “IT Security. Fighting the Silent Threat” is a global report into business attitudes and opinions on IT security. Download the report now to get quantifiable statistics about perceived versus real cyberattacks.
Are you guarding the cyber security gaps with patch management? Download Kaspersky Lab’s latest whitepaper, Your Data under Siege: Guard the Gaps with Patch Management, to learn about: how cybercriminals are utilizing weaknesses in trusted applications to distribute malware.
While the business benefits of virtualization are clear—increased performance and stability and decreased hardware costs, floor space, and management oversight—the virtualized world makes your organization vulnerable to a wide array of new cyber security threats. Are you willing to bet your organization’s IT infrastructure on your ability to combat these hazards?
Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.
This white paper examines the DDoS threat spectrum including conventional network attacks, HTTP and SSL floods, and an emerging wave of low-bandwidth threats, plus the new threat vectors likely to target emerging service platforms.
This whitepaper utilizes end-user interviews to better understand their DDoS defense plans, where they discovered a clear knowledge gap around the Denial of Service attacks in use and the defenses needed to maintain availability. The paper provides detail on the attacks in use, suggests realistic defensive architectures and tactics and explains the basic process required to have a chance of defending against a DDoS attack.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn't provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
This paper discusses reasons why visibility is so essential, and outlines how you can use visibility beyond and within the firewall to develop policies and processes that protect what you can’t control.
In this guide, penetration testers will learn how to evade anti-virus detection on target machines for your Metasploit pen tests. This guide will be most useful to readers who already have some penetration testing experience and are familiar with Metasploit Pro.
With cloud computing’s paradigm of shared infrastructure, DDoS attacks on a specific target can quickly affect many or all tenants. In this Arbor Insight, we explain why availability should be the top priority for cloud operators, and outlines best current practices for preventing and mitigating attacks.
Download the latest DDoS Threat Advisory from Black Lotus to learn about the latest threats facing your company. As a provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation services, Black Lotus is in a unique position to observe and collect real time data on the threats facing service providers, enterprises, and government agencies.
Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.
