Most service providers’ Virtual Private Network (VPN) security delivers little more than a promise to keep each customer’s data separated across a shared infrastructure. What are the risks of this virtual security model and how can it go wrong? This technical paper is prepared from an interview with Senetas CTO Julian Fay, in which these topics are discussed and practical considerations given for using encryption on VPNs to enhance organizations’ data security.

Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.

Whether it’s worrying about a possible break-in or an employee theft, protecting your business is always a concern. For busy warehouses and manufacturing companies, the worry is even greater, as time lost to responding to a crime means revenue loss. With expensive inventory, an active production site, and workers entering and leaving around the clock, reliable security is a must.
Since 1874, Tyco Integrated Security has consistently provided quality products and services to our customers. From loss prevention to operational and risk management, our ultimate goal is to help you better protect your business and meet your security needs.
Centralized and accurate network security management is more than a trend—it is quickly establishing itself as the only means of network survival. Old-school point solutions, where each solution served a single purpose at a particular point in the network, are quickly becoming unwieldy, if not impossible, to manage. Larger enterprises may have hundreds of point products throughout their network, and managing them effectively, efficiently, and securely can only be done through a centralized network security management solution. Look for eight key features in your network security management solution to ensure that your network not only survives but thrives.

Flexera’s Software Vulnerability Research allows effective reduction of the attack surface for cybercriminals, providing access to verified vulnerability intelligence from Secunia Research covering all applications and systems across all platforms. It drives a prioritized remediation process by handling vulnerability workflows, tickets and alerts, and describes the steps to mitigate the risk of costly breaches.
You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
It’s hard for enterprise security analysts to get reliable and trusted information about software vulnerabilities and then identify and filter that data for just the products that matter to their organization. Those challenges lead to wasted time and effort.
As cybercriminals look for new ways to break through defenses, it’s vital that organizations have access to real-time operational intelligence across their applications, services, and security infrastructure. As Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) migrated applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needed to expand security capacity for edge protection of its AWS VPCs. REI chose Splunk for security monitoring, historical analysis, and data visualization in real time, to help it investigate events and mitigate operational risks.

Every year, organizations spend millions of frustrating hours and countless sums of money trying to reverse the damage done by malware attacks. The harm caused by malware can be astronomical, going well beyond intellectual property loss and huge fines levied for non-compliance. In 2014, the cost of malware attacks and resulting breaches was estimated at $491 billion. And these costs include more than just the money spent trying to directly respond to security breaches. Productivity, long-term profitability, and brand reputation are often severely impacted as well.
One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the proverbial “needle in the haystack” – the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.
In this context, detecting attacks is often difficult, and sometimes impossible. This white paper describes how CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own graph data model – the CrowdStrike Threat Graph? – to collect and analyze extremely large volumes of security-related data, and ultimately, to stop breaches. This revolutionary approach applies massive graph-based technologies, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google, to detect k
How adopting a framework can optimize cybersecurity
Today’s threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Organizations with small IT teams are overwhelmed, often lacking the time or resources to investigate every alert. Failing to do so means a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. This can result in a devastating breach, damaging an organization's finances and reputation.
This white paper discusses how CrowdStrike is solving these challenges, by implementing the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and product features to help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. This provides many benefits, including time savings; adding advanced context to security alerts and information; and enabling a common, shared language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially concerning cybersecurity.

Thanks to the emergence of cloud computing, it’s no longer possible for IT departments to be just a builder and manager of technology; you must also now be a broker of IT services across the enterprise. Consequently, you need to design an IT environment that offers the flexibility, efficiency, and security to meet these expectations and aligns services with business needs.
This is a task that’s best achieved by striking a balance among IT domains, spanning traditional internal IT, private, and public cloud environments. But how do you achieve the right IT balance for delivering cloud services? Read this white paper to find out.

What if your employees were more informed about security threats, more skeptical about what they receive in email, and less likely to click on malicious links in email without first verifying them?
There are some impactful, quick wins that you and your organization can realize by implementing security awareness training. This recent in-depth survey of security professionals by Osterman Research shows that the leading security concerns across organizations are all areas in which security awareness training can yield significant benefits.
Here are some suggestions on processes and practices to consider when developing a security awareness training program that will actually change behavior and make the organization less likely to fall prey to a cyberattack.
New network vulnerabilities appear constantly and the ability for IT security professionals to handle new flaws, fix misconfigurations and protect against threats requires constant attention. However, with shrinking budgets and growing responsibilities, time and resources are at constrained. Therefore, sifting through pages of raw vulnerability information yields few results and makes it impossible to accurately measure your security posture.
Few would argue with the statement that security is a top priority for IT departments at companies large and small today. Data is the currency of the digital age and the lifeblood of organizations, so strategies to protect corporate data are growing in importance and are now a topic of C-suite consideration. So with high-profile data breaches continuing to occur across industries, security leaders are revamping their strategies to keep pace.
