Criminal groups behind today's cyberattacks have become better organized, introducing reconnaissance activity, custom malware, evasion techniques, and other sophisticated tactics that place a burden on traditional security defenses. The litany of high-profile data breaches is impacting every industry and prompting organizations of all sizes to respond by modernizing their IT security infrastructure. The battlefield continues to be at the endpoint, where attackers typically strike to gain initial access to the corporate network. Most organizations have been waging this battle using traditional antivirus at the endpoint, a solution that has received a lot of improvements over its more than 25 years of existence but clearly isn't keeping up with attacker sophistication. Emerging endpoint specialized threat analysis and protection (STAP) products can either replace or complement antivirus by adding behavioral analysis and continuous system and user activity monitoring to identify new and s

Read SC Magazine’s original research article Double Vision to learn how visibility deep into network activity and analysis of network traffic can show breaches before serious damage is done. While monitoring network traffic is hardly a new or unique technology, it is an excellent example of how visibility works. Constant vigilance of network activity is simply the best way to determine if any semblance of an attack still resides on your network. Download now!
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
Get a clear understanding of the ways DAM technology is being consolidated and integrated enabling security professionals and database managers to make strategic and tactical deployment decisions more effectively.
This solution brief outlines how security operations must evolve to a continuous operation focused on assessing readiness, acquiring and integrating threat intelligence, and increasing the speed of threat response capability
Databases are the primary target of cyber criminals and disgruntled insiders. Traditional perimeter, network security, and built-in database security measures, offer limited protection when it comes to securing the organization’s most sensitive data.
HIPAA and HITECH require individually identifiable protected health information (PHI) be secured. The unfortunate reality for IT professionals is that these acts of Congress aren't prescriptive regarding what needs to be done about computer systems.
Recent surveys of IT managers revealed two commonly held beliefs: database regulations are the most challenging to comply with, and of all regulatory standards, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) the toughest.
Databases store companies’ most valuable information assets, but in most cases they’re poorly protected. It’s important to secure databases as well as or better than other systems in the enterprise. But it’s not that simple.
McAfee® Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors.
Compliance does not automatically equate to security. A company may be compliant with a host of regulatory requirements, while its databases remain exposed and vulnerable. Learn how McAfee Database Security can help prevent such vulnerabilities.
McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Database delivers all the capabilities needed to secure your databases for reliable SOX compliance, with minimal impact on system performance or the productivity of your IT organization.
