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.
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.
This whitepaper explains the connection between risk management and cyber risk. By reading it, you will gain greater insight into the challenges posed by security blind spots, as well as the ways continuous network monitoring identifies hidden assets to reduce cyber risk.
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.
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?"
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.
Organizations invest heavily to block advanced attacks, on both endpoints and networks. Despite all this investment, devices continue to be compromised in increasing numbers and high-profile breaches continue unabated. Something doesn’t add up. It comes down to psychology: security practitioners want to believe the latest shiny widget for preventing compromise will finally work and stop the pain.
This paper examines enterprise-class snapshot technologies, discussing use cases for snapshots as well as classic challenges associated with using snapshot technologies in pure hard disk drive (HDD)–based arrays.
