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.
When done right, a next generation firewall with plug-and-play capabilities can typically be up and running within a few minutes. Find out how you can quickly deploy hundreds of firewalls remotely with the latest NGFW.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) have been central to network security discussions in the past few years, with many organizations implementing new solutions to protect themselves from this determined type of malware. Yet, cybercriminals continue to be effective in penetrating the network defenses of even the strongest security systems, including some very high-profile enterprises. One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs). While AETs are not a secret among the hacking community—where they are well known and have been in widespread use for several years—there are misunderstandings, misinterpretation, and ineffective safeguards in use by the security experts charged with blocking AETs.
This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and even routers doing deep packet inspection. In this book you’ll find out all about AETs, and get useful pointers and advice to help you secure your organization. If you’re working in government, the military, banking, industry, e-commerce or with other critical infrastructures, read this book to find out what you’re up against and how to better protect against advanced evasions.
Companies of all sizes with multiple remote locations can benefit from plug-and-play next-generation firewalls. Traditional methods can take a long time to implement and can prove expensive. With plug-and-play deployments, on the other hand, you save money, conserve resources, reduce the likelihood of errors, and get single-pane-of-glass centralized management.
It's important to identify the right features for your enterprise when evaluating next generation firewalls. Key points include ease of use, centralized management, integrated VPN, high availability, and the ability to stop advanced, sophisticated attacks. Read this latest SANS report as they look in depth at the McAfee Next Generation Firewall as see how it stacks up against demanding enterprise requirements.
Today’s adversaries continue to increase their capabilities faster than the defenses deployed to stop them. Whether they are obfuscating their attacks or hiding malicious code within webpages and other files, they are making it more and more difficult to profile and identify legitimate network traffic. This is especially true in firstgeneration network security devices that restrict protection and policies to ports and protocols.
Empirical data from our individual Product Analysis Reports (PARs) and Comparative Analysis Reports (CARs) is used to create the unique Security Value MapTM (SVM).
The SVM provides a quick, clear overview of the relative value of security investment options by mapping security effectiveness and value (TCO per protected Mbps) of tested product configurations.
Traditional endpoint security has failed to keep up with today’s threats and is exposing organizations to unacceptable levels of risk. It’s time for smarter, next-generation malware prevention to replace or supplement traditional defenses. New approaches to malware can wrest back control and give security administrators greater visibility and control over their endpoints at a lower cost than traditional solutions.
This paper looks at the endpoint threats organizations are facing, the means to combat those threats, and why next-generation, cloud-driven protection offers the smartest way to prevent endpoint malware infections.
This Executive Summary of the Next Generation Data Center white paper highlights IBM’s vision for the next-generation data center, its potential to be truly revolutionary and the prescribed pathway for getting there.
This white paper takes a close look at the importance of moving to an agile, high-performance, next-generation data center network with three key areas that need to be addressed in order to do so: The Data Center Interconnect, Cloud Connectivity, and Building Cloud-Aware Networks.
The number of identities that an organization must control and secure is exploding as companies support the evolution of business. Traditional users, customers and partners, outsourced or offshore IT, support and development teams, and new users from mergers and acquisitions are working from increasingly distributed locations and devices and to be efficient they need the right set of privileges across a diverse set of servers and applications.
So, how can an organization successfully control privilege for all of these identities to mitigate identity-related risk without slowing down the business?
From this webinar you will learn:
• Forrester’s predictions for next generation privileged identity management.
• How best-in-class organizations are successfully controlling privilege and mitigating risks
A revolution is taking place, and it’s happening in every corporate office across the globe. Mobile devices have completely transformed the way we work, and with the increasing capabilities of the next generation of devices, the need to incorporate mobility into your strategic planning is only going to increase.
Millennials have changed the way we communicate and as they move into the workforce, they expect the flexibility to be as productive, collaborative and connected in the workplace as they are in their personal lives. By 2015, millennials will make up the majority of the workforce, requiring companies to change the way they do business to accommodate these new workstyles. This shift starts with technology, but in the end is about creating a more collective and connected way to work for everyone.
With the introduction of sophisticated threats such as advanced phishing and malware, authentication can become less effective. Authentication methods can be bypassed by fraudsters and traditional risk-based authentication solutions can cause many users to be unnecessarily challenged and disrupted, yet do not manage to reduce fraud. As fraud rises, there is a strong need for fraud tools that can detect account takeover and fraudulent transactions. IBM® Security Trusteer™ Pinpoint Criminal Detection software offers a next generation approach that helps address the challenges of traditional risk engines.
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

The proliferation of file sync and share (FSS) products and other cloud services designed for consumers, along with mobile devices, leads to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands.
So what’s the solution? Protect your information with next-generation information rights management (IRM) technology. You can email, copy, upload or share any IRM-secured document — and the protection travels with it.
Key topics include:
The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers
The need for lifetime control of information and content
The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them
How next generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file
Information technology professionals interested in using IRM for secure collaboration don’t want to miss this important report.

Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees as well as customers, partners, and devices, regardless of location. ForgeRock embraces this shift from internal, on-premises IAM to Identity Relationship Management (IRM): public-facing, secure, and accessible identity as business enabler. ForgeRock’s next-generation IRM platform is designed to empower CEOs and enterprises to engage with consumers via new revenue-generating services, while continuing to maintain our proven traditional IAM capabilities.
In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.
