Complete enterprise security requires coordination. Firms must integrate the technologies and data that come from the endpoint and network layers to make accurate decisions that ensure optimal threat detection, containment, and remediation. Unfortunately, too many firms rely on a huge variety of solutions that require manual integration and correlation, leading to wasted time and poor threat detection. Security leaders must automate these processes to eliminate detection lag and improve prevention efforts.

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.

Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well. Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre

"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 Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

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.

No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google. Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them. Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device on the internal network.

The threat landscape has evolved and the traditional approach to endpoint security cannot keep up. Detection/response is not an acceptable approach. There are a number of approaches to prevent threats on the endpoint and their ability to prevent unknown and zero-day threats varies widely. Join this webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester where we will discuss the findings from a recent commissioned survey they conducted that evaluates these approaches and illustrates that exploit prevention and integration with a network security platform are must-have capabilities. Forrester will also summarize their recommendations for prevention of advanced threats on the endpoint.

An interactive white paper describing how to get smart about insider threat prevention - including how to guard against privileged user breaches, stop data breaches before they take hold, and take advantage of global threat intelligence and third-party collaboration. Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.

Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones. Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security. This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.
