Traditional antivirus or intrusion prevention systems are no match for the new breed of attacks; enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.
Databases store companies’ most valuable information assets, but in most cases they’re poorly protected. It’s important to secure databases as well as or better than other systems in the enterprise. But it’s not that simple.
McAfee® Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time without requiring database downtime or application testing.
Compliance does not automatically equate to security. A company may be compliant with a host of regulatory requirements, while its databases remain exposed and vulnerable. Learn how McAfee Database Security can help prevent such vulnerabilities.
The most menacing type of cyberattack is invisible. The risk to enterprises is real as evidenced by recent high-profile attacks. Organizations need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.

One of IT’s biggest balancing acts is to make data transactions easily available to authorized users while preventing all others from accessing its data assets. With high-profile data security breaches splashed across headlines nearly every day, CIOs are understandably worried about protecting their data. And for IT leaders who are considering moving their business to the cloud it is critical to ensure the provider they select has undertaken full and robust measures for physical and logical security.
Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs):
• Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers
• Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections
• Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections
• One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated
with intravascular air embolism
• Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure.

Two of the oldest and most common attacks used against web applications, SQL injection attacks and cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), continue to impact thousands of websites and millions of users each year. Finding these exposures quickly is essential in order to prevent system compromise and avoid information leakage. SIEM solutions can be invaluable in this effort by collecting and correlating the data you need to identify patterns that signal an attack.

The financial and legal ramifications of the high-profile cyber-incidents that happened in the past year send an unmistakable message: data theft is too important for a board of directors not to be involved. The “Cybersecurity and Data Theft Prevention” report provides a non-technical overview every board of directors can use to assess their organization’s security posture
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
Chronic disease is a major expense for America’s healthcare system. According to the Centers for
Disease Control, 90 percent of the $3.3 trillion in U.S. healthcare spend is for chronic diseases.
If appropriate steps aren’t taken to improve both prevention and treatment of such diseases,
the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease predicts that the projected total cost of chronic disease in
America could tip the scales at $42 trillion by 2030. The most expensive conditions in terms of direct
healthcare costs are diabetes, Alzheimer’s and osteoarthritis, and the three most common chronic
conditions are hypertension, dyslipidemia and osteoarthritis.
Infant mix-ups in hospitals are an issue that occur at a surprisingly high rate,
but are preventable. With Zebra Technologies, hospitals now have the ability to seamlessly match mother / baby identification. Zebra has developed a series of mother/infant/birthing partner wristbands with matching security code features. These wristbands can be produced from identification coming from leading HCIS platforms. Other leading major HCIS vendors are actively incorporating this technology into their offerings.
Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
