Hacker in a security context refers to a type of computer hacker who is involved in computer security/insecurity and is able to exploit systems or gain unauthorized access through skills, tactics and detailed knowledge.
To win the ongoing war against hackers and cyber criminals, IT professionals must do two things: Deploy and maintain endpoint security tools with the latest updates, and ensure the software applications running in their networks have the latest available patches.
Attackers are becoming increasingly skilled at planting malicious code on websites frequented by their desired targets, commonly called "watering hole" attacks. Join us for a live demo showing an example of such an attack, and how to detect it immediately using AlienVault USM.
With increasingly creative exploits, it is important to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to data protection. Performance monitoring tools that do not keep pace can leave your information vulnerable.
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.
Download this white paper to learn how continuous asset discovery gives risk and security management insight into their network so they can direct security and operations staff to take the corrective action needed to reduce risk to meet the expectations of executive management.
This whitepaper talks about how to view up-to-the-minute endpoint intelligence within the context of other vulnerability data, prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation and quickly take corrective action to help minimize risks.
