Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
Data security risk caused by third parties is a pervasive problem.
Yet, many organizations granting remote privileged access to third-party users leave gaps that represent significant security risks.
If you’re like most organizations today, you frequently grant vendors, contractors and other non-staff members access to internal networks and systems. These privileged users remotely administer your operating systems, databases or applications using their own endpoint devices.

The network has never been as critical to the healthcare sector as it is today. Electronic health records, Wi-Fi-connected medical devices, and clinician smart phones are among a plethora of healthcare technologies that depend on a stable network.
The consistent development of this infrastructure is key for the healthcare sector to continue its successes in creating new possibilities for management, patient and family experience, and patient outcomes.
Extreme Networks posed key questions to Nolan Greene, a senior research analyst with IDC’s Network Infrastructure group, who highlights the critical issues healthcare IT professionals must consider when building a network that maintains industry needs.

Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.
Protect the network, use the network to protect students
Your schools use a growing amount of networked information and devices as an essential part of teaching and administration. Research on the Internet, laptops in class, distance learning, and online homework are some of the official technologies that your students use.
Unofficially, this list extends to mobile phones (with cameras), digital music and video players, blogs, instant messaging, social networking sites, and networked or online gaming. Behind the scenes are databases with student information, class schedules, attendance records, copies of exams and answers, financial transactions, and even video surveillance. All of these rely on a robust and secure network infrastructure.

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.
Learn what Forrester has uncovered in their latest report on Enteprise Mobility trends.
During the past two years, Forrester has seen the number of enterprise mobility inquiries increase nearly 55%, jumping to 550-plus inquiries in 2008. In the past year, we have seen a spike in the number of inquiries focused on mobile network architecture, new types of mobile devices, and deploying vertically focused mobile applications that address the needs of workers in certain industries (e.g., retail, transportation, and healthcare).
Organizations invest heavily to block advanced attacks, on both endpoints and networks. Despite all this investment, devices continue to be compromised in increasing numbers and high-profile breaches continue unabated. Something doesn’t add up. It comes down to psychology: security practitioners want to believe the latest shiny widget for preventing compromise will finally work and stop the pain.

With more and more employees spread around the globe, IT teams face a
conundrum: how to secure an increasing amount of data traveling outside
the network while preserving workforce productivity in an increasingly
interconnected and global market. It’s up to IT decision-makers to protect
and secure company data in a way that promotes user access without imposing
overly restrictive or cumbersome device policies. When it comes to protecting
data on laptops and mobile devices, several key factors are essential for today’s
"A number of obstacles stand between you and a safe network. Your security solution shouldn't be one of them.
Check out our infographic to see six common security pitfalls that put your users, their devices, and your data at risk. By avoiding these common security mistakes, you’ll be protecting your network against today’s threats and beyond.
"The average company uses more than 50 security vendors: firewalls, web proxies, SIEM, appliances, intelligence - and the list goes on. Do you have more security tools than you can handle? There’s an easier way to make the most of your existing investments.
We'll share ways you can reduce security alerts and extend your security off network, anywhere users go, with Cisco Umbrella. Built with a bidirectional API, Cisco Umbrella easily integrates with the other systems in your stack, so you can extend protection from on-premises security appliances to devices and sites beyond your perimeter — and amplify investments you’ve already made.

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.
Users are working off-hours, off-network, and off-VPN. Are you up on all the ways DNS can be used to secure them? If not, maybe it’s time to brush up. More than 91% of malware uses DNS to gain command and control, exfiltrate data, or redirect web traffic. Because DNS is a protocol used by all devices that connect to the internet, security at the DNS layer is critical for achieving the visibility and protection you need for any users accessing the internet. Learn how DNS-layer security can help you block threats before they reach your network or endpoints.
As customers demand and expect more of a digitized experience, the scale and volume of secure data that’s being transmitted across the network is increasing exponentially. At the same time, across the APAC region high digital connectivity, contrasted with low cybersecurity awareness, growing cross-border data transfers and weak regulations have made this data a global target.
The growth in the “as-a-service” nature of the cybercrime marketplace is also fueling an increase in the number of traditional crime groups and individuals drawn into cyber offending. New sources of vulnerability from mobile, BYOD, CYOD, web-services and IoT devices are further broadening the cyber threat landscape with ever-more sophisticated forms of malware and DDoS attacks.

With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets.
This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.
