As more employees desire to use their personal smartphones for work, IT managers must leverage the opportunity, or risk their organizations missing out on an emerging business trend. It's no longer feasible for an IT department, regardless of company size, to ignore the smartphone push from the majority of the employee population. IT management must attempt to channel the chaos and determine ways to embrace the personal mobility wave while maintaining effective security and management measures, especially in relation to the corporate network. This free whitepaper discusses innovative mobile strategies, new policies, and a fresh approach to allowing smartphones access to corporate resources.
VolitionRx Limited is a multi-national company which develops new ways to detect cancer. Their ideal product needed to be reliable, efficient, and easily manageable for their modestly-sized IT department. Additionally, the solution had to be readily deployable to their operations in four separate countries. According to Daniel Halter, Group IT Manager at Volition, traditional antivirus vendors were “offering the same old solution only slightly jazzier. The model they were offering, although new, was and is the same thing that has been around for a while.” Daniel also stated that Volition had little time to determine which vendors are “selling the truth and which ones are selling the dreams.” Seeking an ideal match, Daniel reached out to Khipu Networks for their security recommendation. Khipu Networks suggested CylancePROTECT®, Cylance’s artificial intelligence endpoint security product. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.
The concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has been with us since the term was coined for the Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence in 1956. Today, while general AI strives for full cognitive abilities, there is a narrower scope—this better-defined AI is the domain of machine learning (ML) and other algorithm-driven solutions where cybersecurity has embraced AI. SANS recently conducted a survey of professionals working or active in cybersecurity, and involved with or interested in the use of AI for improving the security posture of their organization. Read their report to learn their survey findings, conclusions, and recommended considerations.

Many senior finance executives want their department to play a more strategic role in the management and operations of their company.

Continuous accounting can serve as the foundation for transforming the role of the department.
For decades, fear has dominated the discussion of cyber security. Every magazine article, presentation or blog about the topic seems to start the same way: trying to scare the living daylights out of you with horror stories, alarming statistics, and doomsday scenarios. The result is that most IT shops and security vendors think security is only about what you prevent. They think it’s about blocking, prohibiting, controlling, constraining, excluding, outlawing, and forbidding. Hence IT’s reputation as the “Department of No.”

Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.

Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
