Security was once largely limited to the confines of an on-premises world, but now it must extend to the cloud, as well as a myriad of mobile devices.
Employees and companies now expect increasingly complex interactions with devices, apps, data, and even other users. As many companies struggle to keep up with traditional single-point solutions, and limited budgets, this pressure is creating security blind spots for IT.
In a world of evolving threats, it is becoming increasingly impossible to address all of these issues with an on-premises solution.
What is needed is a holistic approach to identity-driven security—one that leverages a cloud-scale intelligent security graph to help you protect your business.
In this vision whitepaper, we look into some of the challenges facing IT in the modern world and examine the possible solutions.

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.i 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.

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.
i 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.
The malware threat is growing larger and becoming more challenging to respond to every year. It seems like every
month there are more major breaches. Target, Neiman Marcus, and UPS have all been victims of costly breaches in
the past couple years, with each event showing signs that the breaches could have
been prevented. Phishing-based malware was the starting point 95 percent of the time
in state-sponsored attacks, and 67
Regardless of whether your data resides on-premises, in the cloud, or a
combination of both, you are vulnerable to security threats, data breaches,
data loss, and more. Security is often cited as a concern for organizations
who are migrating to the public cloud, but the belief that the public cloud
is not secure is a myth. In fact, the leading public cloud service providers
have built rigorous security capabilities to ensure that your applications,
assets, and services are protected. Security in the public cloud is now
becoming a driver for many organizations, but in a rapidly evolving
multicloud environment, you must keep up with changes that might
impact your security posture.

In today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world more than a few IT
managers have lost sleep over the thought of an employee device, loaded
with sensitive company data, falling into the wrong hands. Lookout
commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a national survey of IT
managers in the Fall of 2013 that uncovered substantial security concerns
related to mobile devices, especially around malware and data loss.
Ultimately, the survey revealed that IT managers do not believe existing
security solutions can adequately address the mobile security challenges
faced by businesses today.
Predictive analytics provide the foresight to understand cybersecurity risk exposure.
Cybersecurity strategies often consist of “whack-a-mole” exercises focused on the perpetual detection and mitigation of vulnerabilities. As a result, organizations must re-think the ever-escalating costs associated with vulnerability management. After all, the daily flow of cybersecurity incidents and publicized data breaches, across all industries, calls into question the feasibility of achieving and maintaining a fully effective defense. The time is right to review the risk management and risk quantifcation methods applied in other disciplines to determine their applicability to cybersecurity.
Security scoring is a hot topic, and rightfully so. When evaluating ways to integrate these scores into your cybersecurity strategy, be sure to look for an empirical approach to model development. The FICO Enterprise Security Score is the most accurate, predictive security score on the market.

"Digital transformation is putting tremendous pressure on IT security. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, understanding and reducing cyber risk across your entire attack surface is tough. Get the CISO POV in this on-demand webcast and learn how to:
• Minimize the attack surface
• Expand visibility of assets beyond the perimeter
• Enhance security practices to accommodate more dynamic IT environments"
In an era of "lean IT," the centralized management capabilities of cloud-managed Wi-Fi make it an attractive option to manage and maintain wireless LANs (WLANs) across multiple locations.
The decision to move WLAN management to the cloud requires one key assurance: end-to-end security from user devices to the cloud. This means that user data must be protected over the WAN and in the data center. These security measures should not require on-staff WLAN security expertise to manage. And security measures should be largely transparent to users.
This paper provides an overview of the security architecture of Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, as well as best practices for specific security scenarios.
The average company uses more than 50 security vendors.
Firewalls, Web proxies, SIEM, Appliances & Third-party intelligence.
The list goes on — and sometimes you still find your stack coming up short when it comes to securing users anywhere they access the internet. Strengthening your security stack doesn’t mean a massive overhaul or a loss of customization and control. Check out these 6 ways to amplify and extend your stack with cloud security from Cisco Umbrella.
Transportation risk comes in many forms and can be very hard, if not impossible, to predict. These include extreme weather, theft, hijacked trailers, global crises, cargo lost at sea, catastrophic truck or rail accidents, truck fires and a whole lot more.
In 2014, the University of Tennessee Global Supply Chain Institute published a white paper titled Managing Risk in the Global Supply Chain. The most surprising finding in the research was that even
though 100% of supply chain executives acknowledged insurance as a highly effective risk mitigation tool, it was simply not on their radar screen, nor in their purview.
Yet, the National Cargo Security Council estimates that there is an annual global financial impact from

The WannaCry ransomware attack in May
2017 crippled the UK’s National Health Service
(NHS) and disrupted a range of organizations
across 150 countries. Despite being a relatively
unsophisticated attack, WannaCry was
able to make such a global impact due to
preventable vulnerabilities that had largely gone
unaddressed. There were many more attacks in
2017, including high-profile breaches at Uber
and Equifax, where heeding cyber-security
recommendations may have reduced the impact
The scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is
not slowing down – ranging from phishing scams
to cryptocurrency-based cyber-attacks, to statesponsored
attacks on industrial control systems.
These attacks present an ever growing challenge
and serve as a reminder that organizations
cannot afford to be complacent in the face of
cyber threats. We’re living in a time when cyberattacks
are a matter of when, not if, and security
professionals must focus on mitigating their
extent and damage.
