Continuous monitoring (CM) begets a process of continuous improvement that works to reduce attack surface and improve security posture, according to the 2016 SANS survey on CM conducted during the months of July to September. In it, 63% of respondents said CM was improving their security posture.
Imagine putting first responders on your operational team instantly on alert about new network vulnerabilities – and how to fix them? This capability is called “continuous monitoring” (CM) and a new guide from Qualys shows you how it can dramatically boost security of your network.
Learn how CM provides you with an always-on view of potential security holes. The guide explains how using CM is a vital step toward achieving continuous security of your network – the Holy Grail for every network security manager!
In the guide, you will learn how to automatically leverage vulnerability scans with CM for stronger security. Continuous Monitoring: A New Approach to Proactively Protecting Your Global Perimeter offers an easy blueprint for using automation to achieve continuous security and compliance.

This white paper explores the challenges associated with protecting data in today’s enterprise and starts to detail how a modern data loss prevention (DLP) solution, delivered as part of a cloud-based web security gateway, can provide continuous monitoring and protection of sensitive data on mobile devices, on-premises and in the cloud.
IBM Security offerings can help federal organizations employ a continuous diagnostics and mitigation approach to enhance and automate continuous network monitoring capabilities; correlate and analyze critical data; and increase risk-based decision-making at the federal enterprise level.
Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

In this study, IANS interviewed two Q1 Labs customers using QRadar to assess their Return On Security (ROS). The two customers were providers of service to the U.S. Government and had highly secure environments dealing with extremely sensitive data. The data yielded from the interviews showed substantial benefit to the organizations for the cost, both in money and staff time.
This paper begins by exploring why SOX compliance continues to be so difficult when it is treated as an annual project rather than a continuous process. Then the paper discusses how Likewise Enterprise can help your company make the shift to continuous compliance for identity and access management in a mixed network. Likewise joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X computers to Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, and monitoring. Likewise also includes group policies for non-Windows computers so that you can centrally manage their security settings in the same way as Windows computers.
