Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.
When your Internet-facing network comes under DDoS attack, does your entire organization panic – or does everyone know exactly what to do? Read this whitepaper to learn how to protect network assets, websites, and web applications against DDoS attacks and best practices for adding DDoS mitigation to a corporate incident response plan.
The web application firewall (WAF) is among the most complex security technologies on the market today. The complexity of managing a WAF includes a pre-defined list of rules to identify thousands of potential exploits, intelligence about new attack vectors, and identifying malicious HTTP requests from legitimate HTTP traffic. Read this white paper to learn how to combine attack detection with threat intelligence using our cloud platform and managed security services to better protect your web applications.
Cybercriminals continue to evolve their tactics with ever-growing cyberattack sizes and new attack methods, which has spiked a demand for DDoS mitigation services. However, it is often difficult for companies to assess, evaluate, and differentiate DDoS mitigation service providers from one another. Read the four critical criteria you should use to evaluate providers before selecting one.
HIMSS Analytics, in partnership with Akamai, recently conducted a survey of U.S. hospitals to understand the current state of web security in healthcare as well as what plans are in place to improve preparedness. The results raise some concerns that despite greater consciousness of the increased risk to healthcare data security, many hospitals are still vulnerable to a wide range of cyberattacks. Read this survey to learn about critical weaknesses in hospital web security.
The growing need for cyber insurance is undeniable, yet the landscape is currently operating without standards, mostly due to the high number of unknowns regarding cyber risks. As a result, understanding how cyber insurance can help mitigate the costs for your company, if a cyber attack occurs, is quickly emerging as a best practice. Download this whitepaper and learn about what to consider when purchasing a cyber insurance plan, cyber Insurance Coverage: What Is (and Isn't) Covered, How Much Will the Coverage You Need Cost?, and how to step up cyber security efforts.
Today's cyber attackers are more specialized, targeted and innovative when it comes to seeking new attack vectors and circumventing perimeter defenses and old-school honeypot traps. Download this whitepaper and learn why Honeypots fail in comparison to Deceptions Everywhere™ Technology, how to mimic real-world scenarios to catch cyber attackers, and leveraging deception technology to combat modern APTs.
The only way to stop cyber attackers in their tracks is to learn to think like an attacker. To give you better insight into what tools attackers are using, we've compiled a list of 15 "must-have" tools for aspiring attackers. Download this guide and learn about Open source tool cyber attackers use, such as Kali Linux and Wireshark, Password cracking tools that automatically test all possible combinations , and Tools such as Nmap, which lets users "map" a target network and its ports.
This case study serves as a summary of illusive networks’ Red Team exercise with a global tech leader.
The fact that a system employing illusive networks' Deceptions Everywhere® technology can stand up to a highly-trained Red Team, with the odds stacked against it, demonstrates how you can protect your systems against sophisticated attackers.
Learn why a threat deception approach to cybersecurity, focused on the humans behind the attacks, is the most effective way to combat modern cyber threats.
Businesses today must reduce the risk of security breaches to protect the valuable data within their
organizations. At the same time, IT auditors are increasingly enforcing ever more stringent requirements
on the business. The bottom line is that privileged accounts and privileged access are being targeted by
hackers as a new attack surface and focused on by auditors who are insisting on greater controls around
The right privileged access management solution provides comprehensive protection for your missioncritical
servers with powerful, fine-grained controls over operating system-level access and privileged
user actions. Capable of enforcing access controls on powerful native Superuser accounts—like the
UNIX® and Linux® root and Microsoft® Windows® administrator—this system-level, host-based privileged
access management solution controls, monitors and audits privileged user activity, improving security and
simplifying audit and compliance.
Privileged credentials have served as a major attack
vector in the successful execution of many breaches.
Protecting privileged access is an imperative to
successfully defend an organization from a breach and
is a core requirement of multiple compliance regimes.
CA Privileged Access Management helps drive IT
security and compliance risk reduction and improves
operational efficiency by enabling privileged access
defense in depth—providing broad and consistent
protection of sensitive administrative credentials,
management of privileged identity access and control
of administrator activity.
Today’s most damaging security threats
are not originating from malicious
outsiders or malware but from trusted
insiders - both malicious insiders
and negligent insiders. This survey is
designed to uncover the latest trends
and challenges regarding insider threats
as well as solutions to prevent or
mitigate insider attacks.

Web application attacks are the most frequent pattern in confirmed breaches. But many security budgets don’t line up with this risk. Getting the budget for AppSec won’t be easy, but now is the time to make the case. Download this e-book to find out the reasons why AppSec is the most productive security spend.
The days are long gone when lone hackers working in bedrooms and garages wrote viruses and broke into computers just for the fun of it. Organized crime syndicates are now monetizing attacks, breaches,
and even the tools that hackers need to commit their break-ins.
Once a “consumer-only” problem, Ransomware now has an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprises and other large organizations are increasingly in the crosshairs.
Consider these facts:
? Ransomware attacks doubled in 2015
? The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
? The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016
This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware, its perpetrators and how they are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.
The frequency of “mega breaches” continues to rise at an alarming rate. In fact, crippling incidents involving tens of millions of customer records, theft of highly valuable intellectual property, and related criminal activity have become commonplace.
This report asserts that many such breaches could be prevented by deploying next-generation endpoint protection technology in concert with an aggressive proactive hunting strategy. This potent combination provides the most effective means to reduce attack surfaces and defend against advanced adversaries.
This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs.
