"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too.
Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics.
Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too).
Users are working off-hours, off-network, and off-VPN. Are you up on all the ways DNS can be used to secure them? If not, maybe it’s time to brush up. More than 91% of malware uses DNS to gain command and control, exfiltrate data, or redirect web traffic. Because DNS is a protocol used by all devices that connect to the internet, security at the DNS layer is critical for achieving the visibility and protection you need for any users accessing the internet. Learn how DNS-layer security can help you block threats before they reach your network or endpoints.
The ‘80s Called… … And they don’t want their enterprise Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) tools back.
If your Project Management Office (PMO) is still relying on the same or similar processes and systems used when neon and mullets were trending, it will never keep pace with today’s market demands or shifts in technology. Six-month deployment schedules and command and control models of yesteryear are actively being replaced with continuous delivery methods and practices like agile and lean—all in the interest of driving greater customer engagement.
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
For organizations with additional security requirements for high value servers hosting business-critical assets, CA Privileged Access Manager Server Control provides localized, fine-grained access control and protection over operating system-level access and application-level access. Agent-based, kernel-level protection is available for individual files, folders and specific commands based on policy and/or finedgrained controls on specific hosts.
Be guided on what the best practices are, offering strategies, actionable tactics, and examples of enterprises on the cutting edge so your organization won't have an overabundance of options when working with partners and customers.

You can’t impose controls on something you don’t own. And in today’s cloud- and mobile-oriented enterprise, no one truly owns the network. The Internet has become the one network that every corporate worker uses and that no corporate IT can control. The emergence of cloud, ubiquitous networks, smartphones and smart (or dumb) networked devices are wreaking havoc over the traditional command-and-control IT mode of operation. This shift is different from anything we’ve experienced before, because nobody owns the network.
Learn how fileless techniques work and why they present such a complex challenge.
The arms race between cybersecurity vendors and determined adversaries has never been more heated. As soon as a new security tool is released, threat actors strive to develop a way around it. One advanced threat technique that is experiencing success is the use of fileless attacks, where no executable file is written to disk.
The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 51 percent of cyberattacks are malware-free, so there’s no indication that these attacks will be subsiding anytime soon. Read this white paper to get the important information you need to successfully defend your company against stealthy fileless attacks.

Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile

When dealing with ransomware threats like CryptoWall, which encrypt your data and demand payment to unlock it, spotting infections quickly is critical in order to limit the damage. AlienVault USM uses several built-in security controls working in unison to detect ransomware like CryptoWall, usually as soon as it attempts to connect to the command and control server. Watch this demo on-demand to see how AlienVault USM detects these threats quickly, saving you valuable clean-up time and limiting the damage from the attack.
This brief examines how application virtualization can compress the development and test cycle, accelerating time-to-market, while reducing risk and complexity. This brief highlights the impact of centralized command and control of application deployment and execution.
This technical white paper reviews the principal tenets of application virtualization; freeing application configurations from OS and infrastructure; gaining centralized command and control over system resources; and dynamically allocating resources to applications based on demand.

A new report from Gigamon ATR helps security practitioners understand how Emotet, LokiBot and TrickBot traversed enterprise networks without detection in 2018. It particularly focuses on the malwares’ command and control (C2) and lateral movement, as these behaviors expose opportunities to observe network traffic, discover these threats and reduce risk. The goal: shorter mean time to detection and response, a more mature security program and a balanced approach to mitigating risk.
