After years of transferring many business activities online to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet, companies have now spent billions of dollars on antivirus software and other security measures. High-profile outbreaks and breaches reported in the international media have helped drive them to implement security measures that protect their customers and their brands while still growing their businesses...Download this paper to read more.
By now the fundamentals of computer and network security are familiar to almost everyone who interacts with a PC on a regular basis: install antivirus software, choose good passwords and protect them and download and install software updates. Despite these measures, businesses of all sizes continue to suffer security breaches.
Lock and key is the most traditional access control measure, but it’s not without its security gaps. There are other access control measures that can help you streamline your business in ways you may never have considered.
In an environment where business and government databases store ever-increasing amounts of sensitive and confidential data; and where a growing number of employees need to access that data remotely, password security alone is insufficient to ensure user authentication. Two-factor authentication requires two measures for users to verify their identities and access data.
Data integrity and ultra-high performance dictate the success and growth of many companies.
One of these companies is BridgePay Network Solutions, a recently launched and rapidly growing financial services organization that allows merchants around the world to process millions of daily credit card transactions. Due to the nature of their business, their IT team needed to strike the perfect balance between meeting regulatory-mandated data security measures with the lowest possible levels of latency and response times.
As their growth accelerated, BridgePay realized the need to immediately address infrastructure shortcomings and prepare for their future growth.
Download the case study now and see how BridgePay built a competitive advantage and scaled transactions by 500% in the same storage footprint using some of the most advanced and differentiated technology available today.
In today's economy, companies are trying to assess if they can afford to become PCI compliant. What many of those same companies forget to consider whether they can afford not to be compliant. Since 2007, merchants who were found to be non-compliant with PCI DSS faced fines of $5,000 to $25,000 per month from Visa. It may seem expensive for merchants to install and maintain new security measures to become PCI compliant and validated, but these costs are only a fraction of what it would cost a company to be found in non-compliance or suffer a data breach. Learn more about PCI DSS compliance and how NeoSpire Managed Hosting can help.

These days, business productivity depends largely on the ability to securely access and interact with a wide range of information over mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones. From sales executives to field technicians, the demand for accessing corporate content securely on mobile devices is growing exponentially.
In the past, implementing security measures to protect corporate content has involved VPNs, intranets, firewalls and passwords. However the increasing uptake of mobile devices in corporate settings means security measures must be implemented over a plethora of networks and devices.
bigtincan has created a powerful solution with BigTinCan hub. An application for mobile devices, it allows for the distribution, management and governance of a range of content, including documents and rich media content, with enterprise-grade security.
Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.

For security analysts, a flow of security alerts is an inevitable consequence of the digital age. Moreover, as alerts can signal business-impacting incidents, the enterprise’s security staff cannot be complacent. Staff must be relentless in gathering logs, setting alert parameters, assessing alert severity, and then prudently responding to incidents with countermeasures.

The third-annual Cyberthreat Defense Report pursues this same objective: to inform the IT security community not so much about what the bad guys are up to, but rather about how their peers globally are currently defending against threats and the changes they expect to make going forward. Based on a rigorous survey of IT security decision makers and practitioners – across not only North America and Europe, but for the first time, in Asia Pacific and Latin America as well – the Cyberthreat Defense Report examines the current and planned deployment of countermeasures against the backdrop of numerous perceptions.
While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterday’s signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, today’s unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. What’s the answer?
This white paper, “The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” explains machine learning (ML) technology — what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. You’ll also learn about CrowdStrike’s exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platform’s next-gen AV solution, it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.

The goal of a security program is to choose and implement cost effective countermeasures that mitigate the vulnerabilities that will most likely lead to loss.
This paper discusses the management of Risk and how Vulnerability Management is one of the few counter-measures easily justified by its ability to optimize risk.
Information technology (IT) security is indispensable to an organization's ability to conduct business and achieve its objectives. Security requirements affect almost every business process and system, and successful security measures help protect a business’ brand value, stakeholder confidence, risk management strategies, and compliance status. Requirements vary among industries, geographies, and regions, but the need to protect privacy, retain important data, and facilitate e-discovery are common to all. This paper provides an overview of the regulatory landscape and identifies steps to take for defining a flexible compliance strategy.
"The Shortcut Guide to Business Security Measures Using SSL" examines current information security threats to business and describes techniques for developing a security management strategy that leverages established best practices.
Ninety percent of business executives believe the Internet of Things (IoT) is important to the future of their organization. And, as IoT is expected to generate a whopping 21% increase in corporate profits by 2022, it’s clear there’s value in adoption. However, there are still plenty of risks that require mitigation through careful planning, cross-functional teamwork and mature security measures.
This white paper explores the business benefits and the security complexities IoT introduces for business organizations, and provides key considerations and recommendations for securing IoT deployments.

Security practitioners and threat actors are constantly developing new techniques to gain advantages over the other. In recent years, security teams have stepped up their approaches to protecting their infrastructure by fortifying their network perimeter defenses, building up protections against advanced malware, upgrading vulnerable operating systems, automating the delivery of patches to stop exploits, and developing counter-measures to spot intruders. The threat actors looking to circumvent these measures are shifting their attention toward the next weakest link in the security chain – the user.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still don’t understand the basics of this im
