Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.

In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions
of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by
the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform
tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media
analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance
required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of
business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data. The task of
managing sensitive information while capturing, analyzing, and acting upon massive volumes of data
every hour of every day has become critical.
These challenges have dramatically changed the way that IT systems are architected, provisioned,
and run compared to the past few decades. Most companies
This paper reveals how not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
Increasingly complex networks, require more than a one-size-fitsall
approach to ensuring adequate performance and data integrity.
In addition to the garden-variety performance issues such as slow
applications, increased bandwidth requirements, and lack of visibility
into cloud resources, there is also the strong likelihood of a malicious
While many security solutions like firewalls and intrusion detection
systems (IDS) work to prevent security incidents, none are 100 percent
effective. However, there are proactive measures that any IT team can
implement now that can help ensure that a successful breach is found
quickly, effectively remediated, and that evidential data is available in
the event of civil and/or criminal proceedings.
Intrusion Detection Systems have ceased to live up to their name and have lost their ability to spot today’s sophisticated intrusions.
Consequently, cyber attackers are taking advantage of it by launching more evasive and strategic threats that spread rapidly within networks. And security teams are left without the proper tools or insight to identify intrusions that pose the biggest risk.
Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable.
Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.
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.
APTs can be particularly harmful to financial service organizations, raising the need for early detection of malicious intruders. This white paper describes three use cases that illustrate how Illusive’s technology provides a nimble, easy-to-manage solution that guards the integrity of SWIFT services, defends legacy, custom, or “untouchable” applications and systems, and helps manage cyber risk during periods of disruptive business change.
The combination of legislation, market dynamics, and increasingly sophisticated risk management strategies requires you to be proactive in detecting risks like fraud quicker and more effectively.
Dynamic detection systems need to adapt to evolving compliance regulations, scale to deal with growing transaction volumes, detect sophisticated risk specific patterns, and reduce false-positives. TIBCO's Risk Management Accelerator uses a combination of predictive analytics, streaming analytics, and business process management to deliver a powerful and cost-effective system for detecting anomalies.

The biggest headache for most payment operations teams is cost control — and a large part of it comes from fraud management:
Investigation teams waste large amounts of time just assembling the data needed to make decisions.
Detection engines are always playing catchup with the latest fraud patterns.
Ever changing regulations increase the time and cost required to reach compliance and meet audit standards.
Given their scope and impact, replacing core fraud systems is not an option for most firms. But instead of replacing them, you can improve the investigative process with augmented investigation, and improve the detection process by enhancing current systems.
This whitepaper describes three ways financial services firms can use TIBCO solutions to lower the cost of investigations through faster results, reduce fraud losses through better detection, and simplify audit and regulatory compliance through centralized access to information.

Cyberwar fundamentally changes how government must handle security. Firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other security devices can stop the average hacker, but new threats use stealth techniques that these defenses cannot detect on their own.

How do we get more visibility into attacks across our environments, improve our response, and reduce response time? SANS Analyst, James Tarala, provides insight on the solution by automating functions that should be automated and connecting the dots between detection systems and response. Connecting these dots and applying intelligence provides responders rich context into the observed behaviors for taking action. Integrating these processes improves accuracy, while reducing time, manpower, and costs involved in detecting and managing events. This white paper explores how to achieve this.
Security and risk management leaders should know that while IDPSs are being absorbed by firewall placements at the perimeter, they give the best protection. They're also responding to pressure from uptake of other threat defense solutions, and providing credible internal and cloud placement options.

Traditional procurement fraud detection methods – manual searches; spreadsheets; and simple slice, dice, filtering and reporting from silo systems – are not keeping pace. Whatever tools and processes are in place now, there’s always the opportunity to evolve to a higher level for more accurate detection – more high-value alerts and fewer
The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
