During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.
Phoenix Children’s CISO, Daniel Shuler, and its IT security team are responsible for protecting 5,000 endpoints in the hospital and across more than 20 clinics in the region. Endpoints include physician and staff laptops and desktops, nursing stations, servers, Windows-based clinical devices, credit card payment processors, and point-of-sale terminals. These endpoints are used to store and/or process personal health information (PHI), and payment and credit card information. They must comply with HIPAA for PHI and voluntarily comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for credit card data. The IT security team’s existing industry-leading AV solution claimed to provide visibility into malicious activity aimed at the endpoints. It continuously reported all endpoints were safe, sound, and secure. This caused Daniel to be suspicious. He knew from experience that such low levels of endpoint malicious activity was highly unlikely. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.
Enhance cybersecurity by
reducing your attack surface
CISOs understand that the smaller a company’s attack surface, the fewer areas need to be protected.
Keeping a low profile lets you make better use of your resources. Esther Shein reports.
The concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has been with us since the term was coined for the Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence in 1956. Today, while general AI strives for full cognitive abilities, there is a narrower scope—this better-defined AI is the domain of machine learning (ML) and other algorithm-driven solutions where cybersecurity has embraced AI. SANS recently conducted a survey of professionals working or active in cybersecurity, and involved with or interested in the use of AI for improving the security posture of their organization. Read their report to learn their survey findings, conclusions, and recommended considerations.

The goal of ESG Lab reports is to educate IT professionals about emerging technologies and products in the storage, data management and information security industries. ESG Lab reports are not meant to replace the evaluation process that should be conducted before making purchasing decisions, but rather to provide insight into these emerging technologies. Our objective is to go over some of the more valuable feature/functions of products, show how they can be used to solve real customer problems and identify any areas needing improvement. ESG Lab's expert third-party perspective is based on our own hands-on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production environments. This ESG Lab report was sponsored by NEC Corporation of America.

The cloud is here to stay, and Microsoft SharePoint users are finally making the move. Since 2013, the number of SharePoint users with intentions of moving their SharePoint sites to the cloud has doubled, according to a 2015 AIIM survey.1 Many users are making the change to reduce IT costs, improve access for external partners and increase mobility.
Casey, IT manager at a mid-size healthcare organization, is one of those users planning to move his organization to a cloud-based SharePoint infrastructure. But because Casey works in healthcare, he’s especially concerned about the security of the cloud. And he’s not alone with that concern — AIIM reports that 62 percent of SharePoint users cite security as their biggest concern when considering a cloud or hybrid solution for SharePoint.
More specifically, many SharePoint users are concerned about the following three areas of security in the cloud:
• Identity and access
• Data protection and privacy
• Compliance and governance
