Intrusion Detection is the act of detecting actions that attempt to compromise the confidentiality, integrity or availability of a resource. Intrusion Detection can be performed manually or automatically. Manual intrusion detection might take place by examining log files or other evidence for signs of intrusions, including network traffic. A system that performs automated intrusion detection is called an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). An IDS can be either host-based, if it monitors system calls or logs, or network-based if it monitors the flow of network packets.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.
Financial institutions need to consider a broad array of key business case components, beyond fraud loss reduction and fraud-management operating costs, when examining the business ramifications of various fraud-prevention technology approaches.
Fireblade has developed an innovative behavioral approach to website security. It inspects users’ behavior and interactions with and relays the aggregated information to a central cloud, where a continual, real-time risk assessment process uses big data to discern legitimate users from attackers and abusers. Download this whitepaper to learn about this new approach.
Security concerns are still causing delays in the introduction of advanced mobile banking capabilities. But getting mobility back on track can be easy once the path becomes clear. One effective way to detect current and future fraud is through an integrated, adaptable mobile risk engine.
The holistic, integrated fraud-prevention platform from Trusteer, an IBM company, effectively protects financial institutions against the full range of attack vectors responsible for the majority of online and cross-channel fraud, including account takeover.
Cybercrime prevention needs to reach beyond fraud prevention. Organizations also need to consider deployment costs, management complexity, impact to customers and regulatory compliance. This document examines seven best practices for achieving effective, sustainable cybercrime prevention.
Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk. This guide will show you how.
This white paper underscores why it’s critical for SMEs to protect all endpoints – not just mobile devices – in the operating environment. It also explains the challenges of applying stringent security across all endpoints and balancing that with convenience and ease-of-use for employees.
