Previously, the network at the City of Lake Wales didn't possess any firewalls, intrusion protection or web filtering solutions. As a result the network, which is spread out to multiple locations (including law enforcement), was left wide open to security breaches and caused system performance problems as users unwittingly picked up spyware and malware.
This white paper examines why IPS devices and firewalls fail to stop DDoS threats. It also describes how an intelligent DDoS mitigation system (IDMS) offers an ideal solution by enabling a layered defense strategy to combat DDoS attacks.

How to create a solid ABM strategy to meet your goals
With the expanding sophistication of large-scale breaches, the question isn’t whether most organizations will be hacked – it’s when. The APM for Security Forensics white paper shows you how performance monitoring tools can act as a network security camera. It also includes a case study of how one network team used a performance monitoring solution to identify the surprising source of an attack.
The right Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) solution can help IT operations deliver superior performance for users. When incorporated into your IT security initiatives, deep packet inspection can strengthen your existing antivirus software, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) defenses.

An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is an essential tool in every security practitioner’s arsenal. Intrusion Detection Systems are designed to gather and analyze information from networks and hosts to detect malicious activity both before and after a security breach.
In this guide, you will learn about the critical components of host and network IDS, requirements to evaluate IDS solutions, as well as how AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) meets those requirements.
Topics covered to help you evaluate IDS solutions include:
• An overview of network and host-based IDS
• Signature-based vs. anomaly-based systems
• Throughput of IDS solutions
• Protocol analysis
• Aggregation capabilities
• Integration capabilities
• Contextual enhancement

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.

This document outlines how hackers are exploiting vulnerabilities in 802.11 wireless LANs and describes the widely available hacking tools. As a collection of already published risks to wireless LANs, this white paper is written to inform IT security managers of what they are up against.
Making corporate data accessible through Wi-Fi networks means intruders and other unwanted visitors can easily access such networks if proper precautions and tools aren't used to protect them. This paper will discuss best practices in all five areas to secure the enterprise network, whether wired or wireless.
More and more companies are realizing that their corporate air waves are an asset that requires protection. Strong security policies have been created for wired networks. The same is now needed for the corporate air waves. This paper will discuss the compelling business reasons why an investment in wireless intrusion prevention should be made.

NAC is a multifaceted framework to thoroughly control who and what gets access to network resources, and help keep malware from entering the enterprise. Today, there are huge challenges to implementing as-yet immature NAC solutions on an enterprise-wide basis, including convoluted integration requirements, inadequate inspection capabilities, and weak policy management.
Protecting desktop and server, or host systems has rapidly become a high priority for organizations that want to ensure uptime and the availability of day-to-day business applications. Today's hybrid threats are growing faster, more complex and more destructive.
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are rapidly becoming an integral part of an effective network defense solution. Unfortunately, finding the truth in today's often overhyped market of network-based IPS offerings is no easy task.
Managing network vulnerabilities will be the biggest challenge for C-Level executives in the coming years. Intrusions are more frequent and more malicious, so the security of corporate networks, and therefore the security of the entire corporation are dependent on the ability to quickly identify, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities in the network.
NitroSecurity's Security Event Aggregation and Correlation Engine (N-SEAC) is a patented, key differentiator of the NitroSecurity IPS solution. It allows enterprise customers the ability to collect and analyze threat information more efficiently and in an accurate and timely manner.
NitroSecurity's Active Network Response is a new security model that delivers network protection closer to the users at the network edge - stopping attacks before they can propagate throughout the network.
Looking at IT security history, the bad guys were always far more sophisticated than the people who tried to stop them. Even if companies or the government could conceive of IT security it was almost impossible to achieve it because of the lack of knowledgeable security professionals out there and the lack of security protection tools in the marketplace.
