The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done. Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks. Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.

What is ransomware? Ransomware is a malicious software designed to hold a user’s files (such as healthcare records, financial contracts, manufacturing blueprints, software code, and other documents) for ransom by encrypting them and demanding the user pay a fee (often in Bitcoin) to decrypt them. How ransomware works Attackers initiate attacks using an array of tactics. Ransomware infections often first begin with an exploit kit — which are software kits designed to identify software vulnerabilities on endpoints and then upload and execute malicious code on the endpoint. Although variants of ransomware behave differently — there are many ways that Cisco can help. Download this whitepaper today to find out more.

“Does Cisco Umbrella block ransomware?” This is one of the most common questions that we hear from customers. In reality, the answer for any security provider — including Cisco — is seldom an absolute “yes” or “no.” It really depends on how each variant arrives onto your systems, as well as its order of operations for encrypting data for ransom. However, with Cisco you can significantly reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization.

Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection. Plus, many organizations are now using direct internet connections at branch offices, which means employees and guest users don’t get the protection of your traditional security stack. Not only are more offices connecting directly to the internet — it’s estimated that 70% of branch offices already have some direct internet access — but attackers recognize these weak points in their targets and have started exploiting them more. To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet.

Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone. A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.

Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

"Nothing kills attacks earlier than DNS-layer security. Protection both before and during the attack Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.

"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network. In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat. "

"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too. Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics. Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too). "

Today’s enterprises face new requirements for their datacenter and cloud architectures, from keeping pace cost-effectively with fast-growing traffic to ensuring optimal application performance no matter how quickly business needs or the enterprise environment evolve. At the same time, IT must reduce costs and datacenter sprawl, ensure security and uptime, and prepare for a new generation of cloud computing initiatives. While many Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions promise to meet demanding customer needs, the reality often falls short. Taking a closer look at the available options and how they measure up against the criteria that matter most, it becomes clear that NetScaler beats the competition—providing better performance and scalability than F5 Networks, Inc.

For the first time in several years, there has been a sharp increase in denial of service (DOS) attacks. In the past, these attacks have been directed at the networks of large companies. Now we are seeing the emergence of attacks targeting smaller companies and higher layers in the computing stack. Intruders are using low-bandwidth attacks disguised as legitimate transactions to bypass firewalls and basic intrusion prevention measures. Organizations need a better way to combat and prevent these attacks, and the right ADC can provide the solution. Learn how Citrix NetScaler can help protect against DOS attacks in the report, Citrix NetScaler: A Powerful Defense Against DOS Attacks (link).
