Businesses require better protection against malware and
DNS-based exfiltration. To identify the most significant
challenges to achieving a more secure enterprise, Ponemon
Institute - a renowned research center committed to privacy, data
protection, and information security policy - surveyed 604 IT and
Many companies that have adopted a layered security strategy
still fail to protect their Domain Name System (DNS)
infrastructure, a critical Internet protocol that was never
designed with security in mind.
Read this white paper to learn why integrating a DNS-based
solution with layered enterprise...
Assuming that every user, request, and server is untrusted until
proven otherwise, a zero trust solution dynamically and
continually assesses trust every time a user or device requests
access to a resource. But zero trust offers more than a line of
The model's security benefits deliver...
Hackers stole at least $920,000 from Russia's PIR Bank after they successfully compromised an outdated, unsupported Cisco router at a bank branch office and used it to tunnel into the bank's local network, reports incident response firm Group-IB.
Application Security is much different than other security domains, so applying the standard methods does not necessarily address the unique challenges that AppSec can bring.
Network security is everywhere so naturally, we understand the need for securing the perimeter. However, application vulnerabilities, which...
The explosion in the growth and diversity of devices linked to networks as a result of the internet of things and BYOD makes it more challenging to manage network security, says Wallace Sann of ForeScout.
A recent analyst report stated 80% of respondents confirmed the use of Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) to protect public-facing websites and applications, but most have remained frustrated, disappointed, and concerned that their WAFs may not be covering all of their security requirements. Your basic and/or outdated...
At least 500,000 routers, mostly located in Ukraine, have been infected with "VPN Filter" malware that experts believe is a prelude to a massive cyberattack. But the FBI has sinkholed the control domain for the router botnet, which should help contain the potential damage.
Legacy, perimeter-centric models of information security are of no use in today's digital businesses, according to a Forrester report sponsored by Akamai, as they are no longer bounded by the four walls of their corporation. Instead, CIOs must move toward a Zero Trust approach to security that is data- and...
If operational technology systems need to get connected to IT systems, it's essential to have tight controls on the network, says Lam Kwok Yan, professor of computer science and engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
Businesses across the UK and Europe spend billions each year on identity and access management, but almost all of this money is spent on protecting the digital identities of humans - usernames and passwords.
On the other hand, businesses spend almost nothing on protecting machine identities, even though our entire...
In today's extended enterprise, with organizations leveraging supply chains and the cloud, microsegmentation has become a hot network security technology. Tom Patterson of Unisys discusses the trend, as well as behavioral biometrics.
Cybersecurity pros need to apply the Darwinian approach of "survival of the fittest" to cybersecurity to navigate the risk landscape and raise the industry baseline for security, says Dan Schiappa of Sophos.
