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.

The realities of security and compliance have changed considerably since patch management faced its first big paradigm shift some years ago. At that time many organizations wrestled with the transition from manual patching and remediation to an automated process. Of course, nothing in security is ever static, so it is no surprise that patch management has continued to evolve since then. Though still automated, today’s best patch management tools and techniques are significantly different from their predecessors. In this whitepaper, Lumension Security’s Matt Mosher, Senior Vice President of the Americas, gives an historical perspective on how this evolution unfolded and why it is important for organizations to evolve their patch management technology in order to remain on top of increasing security attacks.
This white paper identifies what is required for a comprehensive and integrated security management solution and examines the difference between SEM, SIM and SIEM and the challenges of enterprise level security monitoring.

The data security challenges for financial services providers—from the solo accounting professional to the midsize accounting firm to world’s largest corporation, from CPAs to CFPs to credit counselors—have never been as challenging as they are in today’s turbulent times. And although the large data breaches at the most recognizable companies receive the most publicity, small companies and solo offices can also be victims, according to the Better Business Bureau.
The data security challenges for financial enterprises have never been as challenging as they are in today's turbulent times. Not only must financial enterprises comply with regulations such as SOX, GBLA and PCI along with a multitude of state regulations concerning customer privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against the staggering costs—both tangible and intangible—that a security breach can incur.
The data security challenges in the healthcare industry have never been as challenging as they are today. Not only must healthcare providers comply with HIPAA regulations concerning patient privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against identity theft as well more complex scenarios of insurance data theft, medical identity theft and the adulteration of health records.
