IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
In this digital world, fast and reliable movement of digital
data, including massive sizes over global distances, is
becoming vital to business success across virtually every
industry. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that has
traditionally been the engine of this data movement, however, has
inherent bottlenecks in performance (Figure 1), especially for
networks with high, round-trip time (RTT) and packet loss, and most
pronounced on high-bandwidth networks. It is well understood that
these inherent “soft” bottlenecks arcaused by TCP’s AdditiveIncrease-Multiplicative-Decrease (AIMD) congestion avoidance
algorithm, which slowly probes the available bandwidth of the
network, increasing the transmission rate until packet loss is detected
and then exponentially reducing the transmission rate. However, it is
less understood that other sources of packet loss, such as losses due
to the physical network media, not associated with network
congestion equally reduce the transmission rate.
A few short years after 3G service brought us anytime, anywhere broadband-and before Apple rolled out its 3G iPhone-4G networks began raising the bar in select markets. This latest evolution in wireless networking offers faster wireless data transmission speeds, vastly superior coverage and support for a new generation of mobile applications and services.
Do you know how your company is measuring up against the competition? It's imperative to uncover every distinction that sets your company apart. Your people, or talent, is a valuable asset you can use to impact success.

URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.
The attacks continue. The breaches occur. Penalties are assessed. While most universities manage to keep pace with the latest digital trends, they have been far less timely when it comes defending their networks and sensitive data against the latest targeted attacks and threats. This lack of protection is evident as recent headlines expose costly data breaches of student records and research, state and federal compliance violations, and a raft of other privacy and security issues that put students, alumni, staff, and the institutions themselves at considerable risk.
To win the ongoing war against hackers and cyber criminals, IT professionals must do two things: Deploy and maintain endpoint security tools with the latest updates, and ensure the software applications running in their networks have the latest available patches.
Just after the turn of the decade researchers are predicting there will be somewhere north of 24 million subscriptions to next generation 5G networking services. Today most of those services are little more than pilot projects. But thanks to emerging network function virtualization (NFV) software running on Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) platforms enabled by Intel most of those 5G services should be in production before the end of the decade.
Come learn how MEC platforms are about to transform every corner of the networking world to not only drive the creation of a vast array of new IT services, but also make networks more agile and responsive than anyone ever thought possible.

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those
running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows
Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile
devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs.
At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an
interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a
keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps
that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing,
code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In
certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running
Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a
smartphone or tablet.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.
APTs can be particularly harmful to financial service organizations, raising the need for early detection of malicious intruders. This white paper describes three use cases that illustrate how Illusive’s technology provides a nimble, easy-to-manage solution that guards the integrity of SWIFT services, defends legacy, custom, or “untouchable” applications and systems, and helps manage cyber risk during periods of disruptive business change.
In today’s healthcare environments, new cyber vulnerabilities and risks open as fast as older ones get remedied. This white paper describes three use cases that illustrate how Illusive’s technology provides a nimble, easy-to-manage solution for stopping attackers that succeed in bypassing security controls.
Though insider threats are not new, the challenge to get ahead of them has not lessened over the past decade. In this paper you’ll find insights on why detecting and deterring malicious lateral movement is an essential part of an insider threat program, how you can monitor for unauthorized access without eroding employee trust, and how you can expedite the investigation of potential malicious insider activity.
During periods of rapid growth, your business is especially vulnerable to cyberattacks from both malicious insiders, and external threat actors. Extended periods of IT change and consolidation can open seemingly minor security gaps that can quickly become gaping holes attackers will exploit. This quick read will enrich your internal dialog about how to prepare for elevated risk of high-impact cyberattacks.
