When it comes to securing all the parts of a modern distributed network, endpoints remain
the most vulnerable outlier. Mobility has brought a flood of different devices that cross in and
out of enterprise networks on a daily basis. This public exposure, combined with inadequate
traditional endpoint security and a high degree of user autonomy, makes these devices
prime targets for malware infections and other forms of sophisticated attack that seek to
exploit the broader organization. And threat actors are finding enormous success along
To stay competitive, most organizations are currently embracing digital transformation
(DX)—including cloud services, smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and greater mobility.
These adaptations provide organizations with faster and more seamless access to critical

Software plays a central role in business processes and in our daily lives, and companies of all sizes and industries are building, buying and downloading more applications than ever before. However, this increased dependence on software makes the applications powering our world a prime target for cybercriminals. Applications are the No. 1 attack vector for cybercriminals and the main source of breaches.
In addition, the way software is developed is changing. Contemporary application development methodologies like DevOps are increasing the speed and precision with which software is produced and deployed. The increased speed and precision have created a modern software factory akin to the manufacturing factories of past industrial revolutions.

Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust.
This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including:
Value of your data;
Low risk and high returns for criminals;
Why SMBs are easier targets.

News headlines have been inundated with stories of massive personal and credit card data breaches. The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber attacks has created a hostile and precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. The lucrative business of selling credit card data on the black market has made point-of-sale (PoS) devices, PoS environments, and web kiosks a prime target for cybercriminals. Read this solution brief to learn how to protect your network and PoS terminal and web kiosk endpoints from costly multi-stage cyber attacks.
