How is enterprise security like a commercial airliner? Preventative maintenance and regular, in-depth inspections keep jumbo jets operating safely, and the same approach will protect your enterprise security, too.
When you consider the widespread security vulnerabilities, the massively intertwined application dependencies, the diversity of deployment environments, and the potential device takeover of mobile apps, keeping your applications safe is a mind-boggling job. Traditional manual approaches are no longer practical.
Our exclusive white paper, “Keeping Your Application Fleet Flying Risk Free,” will help you establish the preflight checks and regular inspections that keep the applications in your portfolio running reliably and securely. Download it today.
Financial institutions need to consider a broad array of key business case components, beyond fraud loss reduction and fraud-management operating costs, when examining the business ramifications of various fraud-prevention technology approaches.
Trying to keep up with the growing number of instances and containers, Informatica would spin up new security policies with shared key access. This led to a sprawling, complex network of multiple security interfaces that were difficult to manage.
Informatica began working with Aporeto to track, block, and audit users through their environment, and eventually implemented keyless SSH access to their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances.
Read our case study to learn how Aporeto saved Informatica hundreds of development hours with automated authentication and authorization policies across their environment.

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

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.

Your organization’s websites are some of its most valuable assets. But they are vulnerable to security issues and criminal attacks. Fortunately, many of these problems are preventable with effective, integrated website security management.
For ecommerce sites, you can calculate the cost of downtime in terms of lost revenue. You can add to this the considerable cost of remediation, and beyond this, the damage to customer confidence and trust that may be intangible but will be significant. Even when there are no security issues, inefficient processes result in deployment of additional resource that drives up cost.
This article explains why in comparison to the above costs, investing in security management, particularly across SSL/TLS Certificate management, can be a highly efficient and cost effective measure to take.

Cyber security is today an unavoidable concern for law firms and the legal sector at large, which oversees disproportionately large volumes of sensitive data and which is therefore an attractive target for sophisticated threat actors. From confidential information about mergers and acquisitions to disclosures made under attorney-client privilege, today’s law firms are inundated with data that would be disastrous if leaked, both for the results of individual cases and for these firm’s long-term reputations.
Indeed, this reputational damage diminishes the very trust upon which the legal profession is predicated, jeopardizing client relationships and hindering customer acquisition. Legal organizations lose 5% of their clients following a data breach, while significant or high-profile breaches can even prompt a firm’s eventual collapse, as was the case for Mossack Fonseca in the infamous Panama Papers breach.
In today’s increasingly digital business world, even the most private legal docum
