Is open source secure? How much business risk is introduced with it? Fortify surveyed the open source community for an answer and revealed that open source projects lack the three essential elements of security: people, process and technology. Read this research to discover what actions can reduce these risks within your organization.
The hacking community has shifted its effort toward a new frontier: the application layer. How are companies responding? Business Software Assurance – the capability to address the problem of application risk within an enterprise. This whitepaper provides an overview of the severity of the problem along with everything needed to develop Business Software Assurance in your organization.
For a CISO, open source introduces a new source of risk and unique security challenge: how do you influence developers over whom you have no direct management control? Jennifer Bayuk, former CISO of Bear Stearns, provides insight on best practices for evaluating, deploying and managing open source code.
While investments to secure the enterprise continue to rise, breaches into company systems and data are skyrocketing. These cyber crimes are consistently debilitating organizations operations, reputations and ultimately, viability. Today’s CEOs are demanding aggressive strategies to protect their business. CIOs and CSOs are working together to employ proven Business Software Assurance approaches across the enterprise to stay ahead of constant threats.
This agenda of this research paper is:
How is the Digital Revolution impacting business today?
What are the threats and opportunities around IoT, and what are their implications to monetization?
What are the future directions of Agile Billing?
Monetization - necessary evil or critical enabler?
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”

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

This IDC Executive Brief document analyzes the evolving threat landscape and how the use of security intelligence services can help organizations to defend against advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks. Challenges of current security approaches and benefits of security intelligence services will be discussed.
This white paper examines the looming threat horizon that is forcing companies to reexamine their endpoint security functions and discusses ESET's solution for integrated security management that is built around its advanced heuristic technology. The threat landscape facing businesses has evolved significantly, and corporations are looking for security products that can protect against known threats and prepare for future attackers in a simple-to-use architecture.
Worried about cybercriminals taking down your business? Outsmart them with Windows 10.
The threat landscape has evolved dramatically in recent years. It seems every day we hear another headline about an organization getting breached. We've responded by changing the architecture of Windows 10 so that we’re not just building bigger walls against these attacks; we’re locking the criminals out. Windows 10 provides a comprehensive set of protections against modern security threats.

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.
Certain types of diseases seem to only occur within certain national boundaries. Malware is not one of them. A formidable threat to enterprise security since the 1980s, cybercrime is a truly global phenomenon, and no business is safe from its reach.
A brief look at the history of malware attacks reveals a degree of variance within the virtual threat landscape that makes pinpointing and stopping such attacks extremely difficult.
As the historic virus examples illustrate, the malware problem has been and will continue to be a constant threat. Since an offensive line against cybercrime is not possible, enterprises need to prepare the best defense they can.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

This white paper reviews the challenges with endpoint security in virtualized environments - including the inherent risks of dynamic virtual machines and the resource impact of security software such as virus-scanners in multiple guest virtual machines, on a single physical host.
This white paper describes the evolution of these changes as enterprises adopt virtualization and then cloud computing. It then describes Trend Micro's vision for the evolution of security as a facilitator of mobility, virtualization, and cloud computing.

Business wants more fluid access to data while IT organizations must maintain security. As the variety of access and multitude of threats to network resources and sensitive information have grown, so has the need for more flexible and automated ways to effectuate security policies, controls and enforcement. Rarely is this need more keenly felt than at the network endpoint, where people, technology, information assets and requirements for security and compliance meet most directly.
