Sophisticated advanced targeted malware requires a sophisticated approach. This solution brief explains how to defend your organization with a comprehensive, layered approach that identifies, contains, and remediates these insidious threats.
This paper describes five business analytics styles used today and the building blocks required in implementing these styles. It is important to consider which of these styles is valid for your organization now and into the future.
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
Steve Moyle, CTO of Oracle Database Firewall, explains the best practices for efficient database activity monitoring, alerting and blocking that can help prevent SQL injection attacks and other threats from reaching your enterprise databases.
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
An organization that excels at automating, standardizing and monitoring its systems and access controls can comply not only with PCI DSS, but with many other state and federal regulations that have similar mandates. Download this paper to learn more.
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.
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.

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.
This white paper describes how to close this "compliance gap," emphasizing the complementary relationship between SIEM and database activity monitoring technologies, which, taken together, provide a comprehensive view for organizations and auditors to keep data more secure while continuing to address compliance requirements.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.
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.
