In the age of information, staying on top of emerging threats requires IT teams to leverage existing tools in innovative ways, such as applying deep packet inspection and analysis from performance monitoring solutions for advanced security forensics. Based on recent insight gathered from 322 network engineers, IT directors and CIOs around the world, 85 percent of enterprise network teams are now involved with security investigations, indicating a major shift in the role of those teams within enterprises. Large-scale and high-profile security breaches have become more common as company data establishes itself as a valuable commodity on the black market. As such, enterprises are now dedicating more IT resources than ever before to protect data integrity.

Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk. This guide will show you how.
Viruses have been on the attack for more than 20 years, and the cost of dealing with them is escalating. Too many malcode (malicious code) attacks by viruses, worms, Trojans and the like are breaking through today's most prevalent system defenses: Antivirus (AV) programs. This whitepaper will discuss the full impact of virus disasters and what historically has been done to combat the problem.
In most cases, your physical data center will not disappear as these growth trends play out. Instead, it will evolve into a hybrid environment, incorporating a mixture of physical and virtual computing technologies—including both public and private clouds. You’ll face even more challenging security risks within these hybrid environments than you have protecting your physical data center today. And you won’t be alone with these challenges when making the shift to a hybrid data center architecture.

Applications become vulnerable to an encapsulation attack when they fail to differentiate data or functionality within components. Without clearly defined boundaries between control spheres, bad code can creep across components and attackers can gain unauthorized access to data and functions.

"The latest report from Tenable Research analyzes vulnerability prevalence in the wild, highlighting the cyber threats that security practitioners are dealing with in practice – not just in theory. Our research shows that enterprises must triage more than 100 critical vulnerabilities a day. To better understand where to focus remediation efforts, you need to find out how cyber defenders are actually acting.
Download the report now to:
-See why CVSS is an inadequate prioritization metric – and why you must prioritize vulnerabilities based on actual risk
-Discover vulnerability trends in the ever-expanding attack surface
-Learn whether your organization has one of the most common vulnerabilities (some are more than a decade old!)"

While vulnerability assessments are an essential part of understanding your risk profile, it's simply not realistic to expect to eliminate all vulnerabilities from your environment. So, when your scan produces a long list of vulnerabilities, how do you prioritize which ones to remediate first? By data criticality? CVSS score? Asset value? Patch availability? Without understanding the context of the vulnerable systems on your network, you may waste time checking things off the list without really improving security.
Join AlienVault for this session to learn:
• The pros & cons of different types of vulnerability scans - passive, active, authenticated, unauthenticated
• Vulnerability scores and how to interpret them
• Best practices for prioritizing vulnerability remediation
• How threat intelligence can help you pinpoint the vulnerabilities that matter most
“Does Cisco Umbrella block ransomware?”
This is one of the most common questions that we hear from customers. In reality, the answer for any security provider — including Cisco — is seldom an absolute “yes” or “no.” It really depends on how each variant arrives onto your systems, as well as its order of operations for encrypting data for ransom.
However, with Cisco you can significantly reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization.

Attackers are becoming increasingly skilled at planting malicious code on websites frequented by their desired targets, commonly called "watering hole" attacks. These can be very difficult to detect since they happen as users are going about their normal business. Join us for a live demo showing an example of such an attack, and how to detect it immediately using AlienVault USM.
• Common browser vulnerabilities used to execute these attacks
• What attackers do next to take control of the system
• How to catch it before the attacker moves further into your network

Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.
"Hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of multiple endpoints to deliver applications, sites and services, requiring a performance management strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively.
This educational webinar will cover the importance of:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, with clear real-time data
• Understanding the importance of load balancing and active failover
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.
