Uncover the riskiest 1% of threats you’ve been missing. In hours. Not days or months. Nearly all endpoint security solutions claim to block 99% of malware. But what about the 1% of threats they miss? The most dangerous 1% of threats will wreak havoc on your network. If you rely solely on traditional point-in-time technologies, such as antivirus, those threats can go undetected for 200 days on average. For months on end, they can be creeping in and moving laterally across your network causing damage through stealthy malware campaigns without you even knowing it—until it’s too late.

In today’s healthcare environments, new cyber vulnerabilities and risks open as fast as older ones get remedied. This white paper describes three use cases that illustrate how Illusive’s technology provides a nimble, easy-to-manage solution for stopping attackers that succeed in bypassing security controls.
Though insider threats are not new, the challenge to get ahead of them has not lessened over the past decade. In this paper you’ll find insights on why detecting and deterring malicious lateral movement is an essential part of an insider threat program, how you can monitor for unauthorized access without eroding employee trust, and how you can expedite the investigation of potential malicious insider activity.
During periods of rapid growth, your business is especially vulnerable to cyberattacks from both malicious insiders, and external threat actors. Extended periods of IT change and consolidation can open seemingly minor security gaps that can quickly become gaping holes attackers will exploit. This quick read will enrich your internal dialog about how to prepare for elevated risk of high-impact cyberattacks.
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists

ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
IT security used to be about keeping intruders out and selectively letting in friendly visitors, which was best accomplished with a range of perimeter security and end-point solutions. Download this asset to learn more how the landscape has fundamentally shifted since, with much of this shift accelerating in the last 2-3 years.

When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities.
The NGFW should:
1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection
2. Provide complete and unified management
3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints
4. Offer comprehensive network visibility
5. Help reduce complexity and costs
6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions
7. Provide investment protection

The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.

"When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.”
The promise of unified communications (UC) is that it is supposed to increase efficiencies and make internal operations more seamless. But that only happens when it’s working properly.
According to Robin Gareiss, president and founder of Nemertes Research, “Companies devote 33% more IT staff to managing IP telephony and 31% more to UC when they don’t use monitoring tools. The tools are instrumental to identifying, isolating, and resolving performance issues—and preventing them from happening again. When apps run efficiently, employees are more likely to use them.” That’s one reason 36% more people actually use UC in large companies that use monitoring tools.
Join Robin Gareiss, president and founder, Nemertes Research and David Roberts, director of product management, Riverbed, as they explore the different approaches to monitoring UC—network probes vs endpoint telemetry—and why taking a combined approach helps you
