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
It’s become increasingly clear that traditional antivirus is no longer sufficient in stopping advanced threats such as ransomware. Companies need a next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solution to successfully stop modern attacks.
Hear what Trevor Albrecht from DraftKings has to say about his experience replacing AV with NGAV.
A SANS Guide to Evaluating Next-Generation Antivirus
Rather than dying, antivirus is actually growing up. Today, organizations look to spend their antivirus budget on replacing current solutions with next-generation antivirus (NGAV) platforms that can stop modern attacks, not just known malware.
This Magic Quadrant assesses the APM market. First, we will define the market and explain why it's important to treat the five functional dimensions that together constitute its technology foundation in an integrated manner and to distinguish the APM market from others that are closely related to it.

Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.
NSS research indicates that NGFW devices are typically deployed to protect users rather than data center assets, and that the majority of enterprises will not tune the IPS module separately within their NGFW. Therefore, NSS evaluation of NGFW products is configured with the vendor pre-defined or recommended,“out-of-the-box” settings, in order to provide readers with relevant security effectiveness and performance dimensions based upon their expected usage.

An NGFW must be able to:
• Integrate security functions tightly to provide highly effective threat and advanced malware protection
• Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malware activity
• Offer comprehensive network visibility
• Help reduce complexity and costs
• Integrate and interface smoothly and transparently with third-party security solutions
• Provide investment protection
The checklist provided in this document details six must-have capabilities to look for when evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can provide comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise.
CureSeq’s mission is to “revolutionize next-generation sequencing in the oncology space.” To accomplish this, the company must reach as many researchers and clinical oncologists as possible to help them identify and treat cancer. CureSeq, whose work has been published in scientific journals, needed a reliable online meeting solution to communicate effectively with critical stakeholders around the world. After struggling with several other solutions, the company selected Cisco WebEx to take advantage of the platform’s presentation and document-sharing capabilities and audio quality.
This document discusses the hardware architecture of the new switch platforms in the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches product family: in particular, the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform switches. The Cisco Nexus 9200 platform is a new extension of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series. The platform uses a compact fixed-switch form factor and operates in the NX-OS mode, based on Cisco NX-OS Software. Built with next-generation Cisco application-specific circuits (ASICs), the Cisco Nexus 9200 platform brings high-performance and high-density 25, 50, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to data center networks, providing industry-leading performance, power efficiency, and capabilities in compact fixed-form-factor switches.
Beyond the basics in a next generation firewall, to protect your investment you should demand other valuable features: intrusion prevention, contextual rules, advanced evasion analytics, secured access control, and high availability.
Advanced evasions will break the security protection model that most organizations are using today. Given this changing threat landscape we need to rethink traditional security models. Here’s advice on how to evade AETs.
HP helped plan and deliver secure, next generation infrastructures for Kraft Foods Inc.’s launch as two independent public companies. Read how this fast-paced drive toward business agility through client virtualization and a versatile cloud architecture lowered operational costs, increased efficiencies, and improved resource control; giving the two giant “start-ups” the ability to be immediately productive.

In this age of Big Data, enterprises are creating and acquiring more data than ever before. To handle the volume, variety, and velocity requirements associated with Big Data, Apache Hadoop and its thriving ecosystem of engines and tools have created a platform for the next generation of data management, operating at a scale that traditional data warehouses cannot match.
This buyer’s guide provides an in-depth explanation of the factors that impel organizations to look at next-generation security solutions. It also offers:
-An analysis of the capabilities you should look for (and demand) in your network security solutions
-Arms you with the information you need to be an educated buyer
-Helps you get what you need, and not a set of future capabilities packaged in a “marketecture” that you can’t deploy
The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.
Prevention is your first line of defense. Make sure your Next-Gen Endpoint Security includes:
Global Threat Intelligence – a team of threat hunters detecting the newest threats and uncovering zero-days to keep you protected 24/7
Signature-based AV Detection – let your Next-Gen Endpoint Security solution do all the AV heavy lifting and consolidate protection onto one agent
Built-in Sandboxing – get static and dynamic analysis of suspicious threats, without having to deploy a third-party sandbox
Proactive Protection – identify and patch vulnerabilities, and analyze and stop suspicious low-prevalence executables before they become real problems
Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.
Cisco AMP for Endpoints is a cloud-managed endpoint security solution that provides the visibility, context and control to not only prevent cyberattacks, but also rapidly detect, contain, and remediate advanced threats if they evade front-line defenses and get inside—all cost-effectively, without affecting operational efficiency, and before damage can be done.
