Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.

Modern day industrial operations often span complex IT (information technology) and OT
(operational technology) infrastructures. In a very standard environment, thousands of devices
exist and are increasingly being connected via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This creates
new challenges in securing industrial environments specifically by making cyber- security threats
even more difficult to detect, investigate and remediate.

In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) represents the third wave of Internet usage after SMTP (email) and HTTP (Web). Download this free guide now and learn why all firewalls will need to be SIP capable in order to support the wide-scale deployment of enterprise person-to-person communications.
Technology has drastically transformed the banking industry and the way in which consumers transact. Mobile banking is now the new normal. Many consumers, especially millennials prefer to do most if not all of their financial transactions via smartphone due to the convenience in which it offers. Even so, the popularity of mobile banking does not imply that the end of retail banking is near as research has shown that consumers still prefer retail banking for complex services such as loan applications, new account openings and advisory services.

Retailers, along with many other vertical industries, seek to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve customer experience management. However, quickly analyzing relevant data to inform decision-making and respond e?ectively to rapidly changing customer behaviors is challenging. The CEMOSoft* platform is designed to create opportunities, while addressing shifting demographics and an evolving IoT landscape. It o?ers a mobile customer engagement experience that can be dynamically modified on the ?y, along with the increased security and intelligence of an Intel® architecture based IoT gateway and Windows® 10 IoT Core. The result is an a?ordable, ?exible, scalable platform that brings ongoing customer insight to many aspects of daily operations
The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1
Intel® technology-based gateways and Asavie, a provider of next-gen enterprise mobility management and IoT connectivity solutions, offer a security connectivity solution that minimizes the effort and cost to businesses to ensure safety from cybersecurity attacks. In addition, the Intel/Asavie IoT solution provides retailers with a solid basis to build their smart, connected projects:
Protecting desktop and server, or host systems has rapidly become a high priority for organizations that want to ensure uptime and the availability of day-to-day business applications. Today's hybrid threats are growing faster, more complex and more destructive.
Spyware is but the latest in a long list of Internet threats facing individuals and organizations alike. While it may sound relatively innocuous, spyware is the culmination of years of hacking development by cyber criminals. Spyware does more than just spy; it records and reports back specific information about the computer it infects.
Voice over Internet Protocol (Voice over IP or VoIP) allows users to make phone calls over the Internet, or any other IP network, using the packet switched network as a transmission medium rather than the traditional circuit transmissions of the PSTN. As the technology has become more reliable in recent years, companies have been moving to VoIP for a number of reasons.
Viruses have been on the attack for more than 20 years, and the cost of dealing with them is escalating. Too many malcode (malicious code) attacks by viruses, worms, Trojans and the like are breaking through today's most prevalent system defenses: Antivirus (AV) programs. This whitepaper will discuss the full impact of virus disasters and what historically has been done to combat the problem.
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are rapidly becoming an integral part of an effective network defense solution. Unfortunately, finding the truth in today's often overhyped market of network-based IPS offerings is no easy task.
Mobile and remote workers of all types need high-quality connections to the Internet and to their corporate networks. They need connections from branch offices, homes, airports, hotels and other locations around the world. This truly becomes a security challenge as network managers scramble to meet these needs.
The Internet and email have stimulated huge productivity gains for employees. Workers quickly and easily access volumes of research on the Web and correspond with a mouse click. Unfortunately, businesses taking advantage of these tools are increasingly faced with daily onslaughts of spam and unwanted Web traffic.
Use of instant messaging applications-like AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN Messenger and ICQ-and peer-to-peer applications has grown significantly. Although the benefits of real-time communication offer a productivity benefit to corporate environments, instant messaging and peer-to-peer applications add significant vulnerabilities and risks to an enterprise's security posture.

Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.
