This white paper examines five steps to better security that today's retail businesses can't afford to ignore on their networks - from application control to data loss prevention - to ensure business continuity and PCI DSS compliance.
In an era of "lean IT," the centralized management capabilities of cloud-managed Wi-Fi make it an attractive option to manage and maintain wireless LANs (WLANs) across multiple locations.
The decision to move WLAN management to the cloud requires one key assurance: end-to-end security from user devices to the cloud. This means that user data must be protected over the WAN and in the data center. These security measures should not require on-staff WLAN security expertise to manage. And security measures should be largely transparent to users.
This paper provides an overview of the security architecture of Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, as well as best practices for specific security scenarios.
McAfee® Vulnerability Manager for Databases automatically discovers networked databases; determines if the latest patches have been applied; and tests for common weaknesses, making it easier to demonstrate compliance and better protect critical data.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.
Private cloud is one of the critical deployment architectures IT teams are adopting as they transition to a service-centric delivery model. More than 75% of organizations? already use private clouds to lower costs, increase agility and exert greater control over security, data protection and compliance.
The transition to private cloud represents a paradigm shift in how IT is provisioned and data centers are deployed. Virtualization is expanding beyond servers into storage and networking, while software-defined models allow new levels of agility through advanced automation and orchestration.
OAuth is an emerging Web standard for authorizing limited access to applications and data. It is designed so that users can grant restricted access to resources they own—such as pictures residing on a site like Flickr or SmugMug—to a third-party client like a photo printing site. In the past, it was common to ask the user to share their username and password with the client, a deceptively simple request masking unacceptable security risk. In contrast to this, OAuth promotes a least privilege model, allowing a user to grant limited access to their applications and data by issuing a token with limited capability.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
Spyware is but the latest in a long list of Internet threats facing individuals and organizations alike. While it may sound relatively innocuous, spyware is the culmination of years of hacking development by cyber criminals. Spyware does more than just spy; it records and reports back specific information about the computer it infects.

At last, your business users can get close enough to the data to manipulate it and draw their own reliable, fact-based conclusions. And they can do it in seconds or minutes, not hours or days.
Equally important, IT remains in control of data access and security by providing trusted data sets and defined processes that promote the valuable, user-generated content for reuse and consistency. But, they are no longer forced
Cyberbreaches aren’t just in the news—they are the news. Yet headlines rarely mention the No. 1 source of those breaches: weak or stolen passwords. Whether they involve malware, hacking, phishing, or social engineering, the vast majority of breaches begin with account compromise and credential theft, followed by dormant lateral network movement and data exfiltration. In fact, weak or stolen passwords account for a staggering 81% of breaches, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report.
Not surprisingly, a new Okta-sponsored IDG survey finds that identity access management (IAM) is a top priority for nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT and security leaders. Yet the same survey uncovers widespread concern that their current IAM implementations are falling short. Just one worrisome example: Fewer than one-third (30%) of respondents report a good or better ability to detect a compromise of credentials.
The following report explores the gap between respondents’ aspiratio

Organizations face a new breed of cyber attacks that easily thwart traditional defenses. These advanced attacks are targeted. They are persistent. And they are devastatingly effective at breaching your systems and stealing your sensitive data.
This paper examines:
The limitations of existing security solutions;
Several security architectures, including sandbox-based products;
An architecture built from the ground up to truly protect against today's advanced attacks.
The financial collapse of 2008 had the greatest impact on the financial services industry since World War II, resulting in consolidation and extensive regulation. The crisis coincided with increased competition from emerging economic powers, nonbanks and fintech organizations. Consumer behavior, from the adoption of mobile banking to P2P payments, forced banks to retool and respond with innovative products and investments in new delivery channels. Technology changed rapidly as well. In the capital markets, trading became fully automated, with pricing, risk decisions and settlement across exchanges made in milliseconds
