Downtime Is Not an Option: High Availability Next Generation Firewall
Access to applications, data, and resources on the Internet is mission-critical for every organization. Downtime is unacceptable. Security for that network must also be highly available and not cause performance degradation of the network.
The increased workload of security devices as they analyze traffic and defend users from malicious attacks strains computing resources. The next generation of security solutions must build in high availability that can scale as the business changes. Download this whitepaper to find out how high availability is at the core of the Forcepoint NGFW (Next Generation Firewall).

How Security Solutions Enable Cloud Success Cloud applications have transformed how organizations conduct business, increasing productivity and reducing costs. However, moving to the cloud means critical data now flows outside the organization’s traditional security boundaries. Unsurprisingly, security concerns still rank as the number one reason for not using cloud services. Read the eBook to find out the five information security lessons learned from transitioning to the cloud.

Transforming Cloud Connectivity & Security in Distributed Networks
Today’s digital transformation initiatives frequently begin with moving applications and data to the cloud. But traditional networking and security infrastructure, such as backhauling data from remote locations to central offices over MPLS lines, can’t keep up.
Fortunately, new approaches that also move connectivity and security to the cloud are rapidly overcoming these hurdles. Technologies such as direct-to-cloud SD-WAN and site-to-site VPNs dramatically cut the cost of connectivity. However, they put pressure on other parts of the organization to adopt new ways of defending each site against internet intruders, protecting the use of web content, and securing data stored in cloud apps.
In this webcast, we’ll discuss a new, integrated approach to connectivity and security. View the webinar today!

When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects:
• Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences
To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic
Technology has drastically transformed the banking industry and the way in which consumers transact. Mobile banking is now the new normal. Many consumers, especially millennials prefer to do most if not all of their financial transactions via smartphone due to the convenience in which it offers. Even so, the popularity of mobile banking does not imply that the end of retail banking is near as research has shown that consumers still prefer retail banking for complex services such as loan applications, new account openings and advisory services.

Since the early days of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for this category, there have been successive waves of innovation. Back in 2002, integrated firewalls captured the market’s (and Gartner’s) attention. Over the years, we’ve seen technologies, such as full disk encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), behavioral detection, application control, and more recently, machine learning, as effective new ways to protect endpoints, detect threats and give security teams peace of mind. Trend Micro has consistently been part of these innovation waves.
It’s clear that the market is excited about Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR). There are two drivers for this, and we are committed to delivering effective solutions in both areas.
In today's cloud-based, mobile IT world, the need for security is rapidly growing. As enterprises continue to depend on the cloud for delivery of applications and more workers are using multiple types of devices to access those applications, the need to control who has access to what is also growing. This Technology Spotlight discusses the challenges of cloud identity access management and provides guidance on which IAM architectural solutions would benefit your business.
Organizations in every industry rely on applications to drive customer engagement, employee productivity and revenue. Deployed between users and the applications are a wide variety of “application services” designed to enhance security, improve performance and ensure reliability. F5 set out to evaluate the state of these services by asking IT professionals about their current and planned use of application services. Read the report to learn which strategic initiatives are driving application deployments including the most important trend for the next 2-5 years.
Organizations considering moving enterprise applications to the public cloud should ensure that they also move the application delivery services their applications rely on in the data center. In addition, cloud migration presents an opportunity to organize and rationalize security and access, gain visibility into cloud-based application traffic, and architect a strong disaster recovery plan. Download to read the 5 rules to follow when lifting and shifting apps to the the cloud.
Application delivery services are critical for successful applications. Whether such services add scalability, reliability, or security, most applications rely on one or more. Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), therefore, occupy a critical place in most application, cloud, and data center designs.
But what does "performance" actually mean? In general, ADC vendors publish four main types of metrics to demonstrate performance:
Requests per second (RPS) Connections per second (CPS) Transactions per second (TPS) Throughput (often measured in gigabits per second, Gbps)

Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and effciency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational ef?ciency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.
As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services for layers 4 through 7 are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational ef?ciency.
Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.
