An Intrusion Prevention System is any device which exercises access control to protect computers from exploitation. "Intrusion prevention" technology is considered by some to be an extension of intrusion detection (IDS) technology, but it is actually another form of access control, like an application layer firewall. The latest Next Generation Firewalls leverage their existing deep packet inspection engine by sharing this functionality with an Intrusion-prevention system.
Has managing your clients become cumbersome and time consuming? Heavy bandwidth and distributed workstations got you down? Maybe it's time to switch to the next generation of antivirus with Panda's Security as a Service (SaaS).
In this fraud alert paper, we’ll highlight the current trends in today’s phishing schemes, with a particular focus on the latest threats emerging from China. Then we’ll offer some ideas and best practices for applying technology to protect both yourself and your customers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Join us on June 25th at 2PM BST to find out how to detect sophisticated cyber attacks using network logging technologies and learn how you can use these technologies to create an audit trail of network activity.
In this installment of a series of white papers about the true cost of DDoS attacks, StamSOC (Staminus Security Operation Center) will discuss the history of the attacks, the wide reaching impacts, and the true costs associated with DDoS attacks.
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.
