Targeted threats are increasing at an alarming rate. Malicious actors are evolving their methodologies and are increasingly exploiting the domain name system (DNS) to launch cyberattacks. Learn more about how to proactively protect your company with an additional layer of cloud-based security.
It’s likely not a matter of if, but when your company will fall prey to targeted attack involving malware, ransomware, data exfiltration, or phishing. In fact, 70% of organizations reported a security incident that negatively impacted their business in the past year. Learn more about the realities of cybercrime in today’s hyperconnected world.
Cybercriminals are evolving. Increasingly, they are capitalizing on the open and unprotected nature of the Domain Name System (DNS) to launch damaging phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. How are you proactively protecting your network and users from these targeted threats? Here are five things to ask yourself as you consider a DNS security solution for your company.
With the constant drumbeat of news reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of the Domain Name System (DNS), and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number.
DNS is a well-worn data exfiltration and communication vector. Explore why targeted threats continue to use the DNS protocol to exfiltrate sensitive information, how it’s done, and what might be next in the evolution of this attack vector.
Examine the business impact of malware, ransomware, and phishing, as well as the cost of the average data breach. Given the significant economic impact of these threats, understanding your financial exposure and employing a layered defense simply makes sense.
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

Ask any cybersecurity professional and she’ll tell you that her job is getting increasingly difficult. Why? Most will point to a combination of the dangerous threat landscape, IT complexity, and their overwhelming workload. These issues are driving a major transition in enterprise security. Large organizations must move beyond a threat prevention mentality to
become proactive cyber-¬-attack “hunters” that constantly monitor their networks for signs of trouble. This shift to proactive hunting will require new technologies that collect, process, and analyze massive amounts of security data, offer intelligent security analytics for real-¬-time incident detection, integrate threat intelligence to align suspicious internal activities with
external threats, and provide analysts with the right data analytics features to query and manipulate data for historical investigations.
Streamline your endpoint security stack and your team's workload with predictive, AI based, pre-execution malware protection plus prevention based EDR. CylancePROTECT combined with CylanceOPTICS = real-time, predictive threat prevention.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches provide radically new and improved endpoint protection. But not all companies' claims of using machine learning add up to a threat prevention strategy. Know the difference."
Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was jointly developed to provide additive testing to the commodity antivirus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST. CylancePROTECT® was tested against five competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro. The tests were performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. Read more in the AV-TEST report.
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.

While mobile threats are still largely mischiefware and have not yet broken the device’s security model but instead more focused on for-pay texting scams or stealing personal information, the dangers are still rife. This white paper from BlueCoat examines the mobile threat landscape and the behavioral patterns of mobile users that make them most vulnerable to data loss, malicious applications, fraud and other mobile threats.
All indicators are up when it comes to mobility: More devices, more users, more budget, and more applications. Business technology leaders must begin planning now for a security paradigm shift, one that will pull together disparate security policies into a single, user-centric, universal policy that can apply to whatever devices and apps employees use. This white paper from BlueCoat explores the new security challenges mobility trends are creating, and how security must change to meet them.
Reports of cyberattacks now dominate the headlines. And while most high-profile attacks—including the major breaches at JP Morgan, Anthem and Slack—originated outside of the victimized organizations, theft and misuse of data by privileged users is on the rise.
In fact, 69% of enterprise security professionals said they have experienced the theft or corruption of company information at the hands of trusted insiders. There are also cases where a company’s third-party contractors, vendors or partners have been responsible for network breaches, either through malicious or inadvertent behavior.
Protecting privileged access and preventing breaches remains an urgent concern for companies of all sizes. Attackers are using a wider range of more sophisticated methods to infiltrate vulnerable systems. And although news of external breaches often dominates headlines, organizations must also be able to defend against insider threats.
