A Firewall is a piece of hardware and/or software which functions in a networked environment to prevent some communications forbidden by the security policy, analogous to the function of firewalls in building construction. A firewall is also called a Border Protection Device (BPD), or packet filter in BSD contexts. A firewall has the basic task of controlling traffic between different zones of trust.
It was recently found that most Global 2000 organisations have failed to completely remediate Heartbleed. This leaves these organisations vulnerable to cyberattacks, future brand damage, and intellectual property loss.
See how APT 18 conducted its proof-of-concept attack, learn how attackers bypassed critical security controls and find out how you can eliminate blind spots, reduce risk, and respond and remediate faster.
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?"
Recently, Kasperky Labs disclosed that it was the victim of a sophisticated cyber attack, which they have named Duqu 2.0. The team at Kaspersky Labs has published a detailed analysis of Duqu 2.0 and it’s definitely worth a read.
Today’s multivector and persistent threats, fluid IT environments, and increasing user mobility are prompting more organizations to seek NGFW capability that provides affordable and effective layered threat protection.
The security threat landscape is rapidly evolving: from risks with the proliferation of mobile devices to the increased sophistication of organized cyber criminals and geopolitical threats. Healthcare has a significant burden with the dubious distinction of having the highest per record data breach cost among all regulated industries.
Integrated security intelligence solutions help organizations use labor-saving automation to proactively identify security weaknesses, prioritize remediation tasks and take quick corrective action to minimize potential risks across a dynamic infrastructure.
Hybrid cloud infrastructures and mobility are changing the rules of the game for IT security professionals. Read this paper to understand the requirements to adopting a new monitoring strategy to quickly detect attacks across the infrastructure you control in your data center, as well as what you don't control in the dynamic cloud.
Optimize the process of investigating and gathering evidence on attacks and data breaches with Network Forensics software. Learn how using full network packet capture data can deliver insight and analysis that cannot be achieved using only log source events and network flow details.
