The endpoint security market continues to expand with vendors old and new marketing their solutions as “next generation” game-changers. However, closer inspection reveals that many new solutions have been built on old platforms, many of which still rely heavily on signature-based detection and obsolete architecture. Navigating this crowded vendor landscape can be challenging — how does the buyer find the true next-generation protection today’s targeted, advanced threats demand?
A new white paper, “The Five Essential Elements of Next -Generation Endpoint Protection,” offers guidance on how to see through the hype and understand the critical must-have elements that meet true next-generation criteria and set a new standard in EPP.

As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security

Research in the SSL/TLS security market points to a growing need for securing web applications with high assurance certificates issued by a reputable Certification Authority (CA). The integrity of the CA and the extended services offered through a certificate management platform (CtaaS) can produce a truly secure IT environment for website transactions according to industry analysts, Frost & Sullivan, in their in-depth analysis, SSL/TLS Certificates Market, Finding the Business Model in an All Encrypt World. Organizations want to avoid the negative publicity associated with security breaches and customers want to be assured of data protection when making online transactions. In this condensed report, catch the highlights of current industry trends and the ever important need to secure your server with a reputable CA.
Consistency and customer experience are key to quality and profitability in retail. Manual reporting processes can be unwieldy and time-consuming, but bringing together all compliance procedures under one digital platform means fast, consistent and easy-to-access performance data.
Using real-time insights into best practice improves the reporting of quality control, stock loss prevention, inspection processes, logistics and more – saving time, increasing efficiency and boosting customer satisfaction. Benefits include better branding through monitoring rollouts with uploaded photos and videos, protection against shrinkage through improved inspection processes and audits, and clearer visibility of issues which means a speedier response.
Gain a bird's-eye view of how online fraud affects the airline industry
Fraud continues to be a major source of revenue loss for the global airline industry. With airlines pushing for more direct bookings and the accelerating use of mobile as a booking platform, incidence of fraud is rising, albeit only slightly. Despite these factors, many airlines are not devoting the necessary resources and tracking the required metrics to measure and control fraud.
CyberSource partnered with Phocuswright to benchmark global metrics and trends in fraud management and protection among airlines. The study also explores airline awareness of various fraud-related issues and examines their approaches to and implementation of fraud management tools and services.

Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.
Unlike appliances, our cloud security platform protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protection extends to every device connected to the network — even IoT. Umbrella truly is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
