This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the
NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.
In recent years, threat actors have become increasingly focused on targeting corporations to obtain sensitive information for financial profit or economic espionage. Regardless of the adversaries’ motives, corporations understand the need to implement defensive measures to secure their infrastructure and sensitive data while mitigating the risk of future attacks.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
Large organizations can no longer rely on preventive security systems, point security tools, manual processes, and hardened configurations to protect them from targeted attacks and advanced malware.
Henceforth, security management must be based upon continuous monitoring and data analysis for up-to-the-minute situational awareness and rapid data-driven security decisions. This means that large organizations have entered the era of data security analytics.

Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental.
Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we:
• Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach
• Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is
• Describe how to communicate its value to the business and
• Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security
It is now widely recognized that antivirus software is insufficient to protect organizations, large or small, from advanced threats and targeted attacks. In response, organizations are increasingly looking to adopt proactive approaches to security, such as application control, to ensure the fidelity and security of intellectual property.
The latest Gartner Magic Quadrant Reports are available, covering Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Secure Email Gateway vendors. Published in May and July 2013, you’ll get insights on the current state of security threats and solutions.
