As cyberattacks and fraud continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, organizations are placing a greater emphasis on cyberthreat intelligence as a way to protect against compromise, data breach, and losses from online fraud. Measuring the true value of threat intelligence has been difficult however.
For the first time the Ponemon Institute has conducted a study that reveals the facts behind the impact that weak threat intelligence is having on organizations.
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.
Faced with trends like cloud and the rapid rise of mobile devices, IT needs a new, simpler model of building networks to support and optimize applications. In this Lippis Report, learn how the Cisco ISR Application Experience Router helps you improve application speed, security, and control.
Learn how our top-rated vulnerability assessment solution, Nexpose, and our new endpoint controls monitoring solution, ControlsInsight, help you accurately assess your defenses, make informed decisions, create credible action plans, and monitor ongoing progress.
It’s no longer sufficient talk about the importance of mobility for IT-enabled operations. Instead, think about the concept of pervasive mobility, where the current generation of traditional devices like notebooks are augmented, and perhaps eventually replaced, by a new armada of consumer-class devices at the edge of the network. In fact, the bulk of information now being created and stored on corporate networks comes from notebooks, tablets and smartphones.
While mobile threats are still largely mischiefware and have not yet broken the device’s security model but instead more focused on for-pay texting scams or stealing personal information, the dangers are still rife. This white paper from BlueCoat examines the mobile threat landscape and the behavioral patterns of mobile users that make them most vulnerable to data loss, malicious applications, fraud and other mobile threats.
For decades, fear has dominated the discussion of cyber security. Every magazine article, presentation or blog about the topic seems to start the same way: trying to scare the living daylights out of you with horror stories, alarming statistics, and doomsday scenarios. The result is that most IT shops and security vendors think security is only about what you prevent. They think it’s about blocking, prohibiting, controlling, constraining, excluding, outlawing, and forbidding. Hence IT’s reputation as the “Department of No.”
Given the new threats inherent in an increasingly mobile workforce and the blurring of lines between business and personal use of devices, it is clear that conventional methods of securing the perimeter in this new environment are not up to the task. This white paper from BlueCoat explains how organizations can most effectively maximize their security efforts by incorporating a cloud-based solution as part of a unified approach.
CISOs recognize the risk threats such as phishing, fake antivirus (AV), and search engine poisoning bring, and are anxious to invest in web security technology to safeguard users. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy. Many security executives are struggling to answer questions about the most effective approach. This ESG white paper from BlueCoat explains why some CIOs are struggling to manage security in an increasingly complex and mobile landscape, and offers advice for what they should be looking for in web security.
Data breaches have become a fact of life for organizations of all sizes, in every industry and in many parts of the globe. While many organizations anticipate that at some point a non-malicious or malicious data breach will occur, the focus of this study is to understand the steps organizations are taking—or not taking--to deal with the aftermath of a breach or what we call the Post Breach Boom.
Sponsored by Solera Networks, The Post Breach Boom study was conducted by Ponemon Institute to understand the differences between non-malicious and malicious data breaches and what lessons are to be learned from the investigation and forensic activities organizations conduct following the loss or theft of sensitive and confidential information. The majority of respondents in this study believe it is critical that a thorough post-breach analysis and forensic investigation be conducted following either a non-malicious or malicious security breach.
