The state of threat intelligence in the information security community is still very immature. Many organizations are still combating threats in a reactive manner, only learning what they're dealing with, well...when they're dealing with it. There is a wealth of information in the community, and many organizations have been gathering data about attackers and trends for years. How can we share that information, and what kinds of intelligence are most valuable? In this presentation, we'll start with a brief overview of AlienVault's Open Threat Exchange™ (OTX), and then we'll discuss attack trends and techniques seen in enterprise networks today, with supporting data from AlienVault OTX. We'll also take a look at some new models for collaboration and improving the state of threat intelligence going forward.

"Just over a decade ago, the outcry over Microsoft’s security problems reached such a deafening level that it finally got the attention of Bill Gates, who wrote the famous Trustworthy Computing memo. Today, many would say that Microsoft leads the industry in security and vulnerability handling.
Now, it’s Java that’s causing the uproar. But has Oracle learned anything from Microsoft in handling these seemingly ceaseless problems? In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith from Ultimate Windows Security will start by reviewing the wide-ranging Java security changes Oracle is promising to make. They sound so much like the improvements Microsoft made back with Trustworthy Computing that I’m amazed it hasn’t been done before! We’ll move on to discuss what you can do now to address Java security in your environment.
One of the banes of security with Java is the presence of multiple versions of Java, often on the same computer. Sometimes you really need multiple versions of Java to support appli

In this whitepaper you will read about how to maximize uptime, reduce management costs, and quickly respond to business demands.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) holds the promise not only of consolidating desktop computing into the data center for improved manageability, efficiency, and security, but also for supporting new services such as bring-your-own device and desktop mobility.
To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates.
EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication.
Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.”
For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.

This executive brief provides results of a CIO Magazine Quick Pulse poll sponsored by Red Hat which highlights the industry move to private cloud technology and hybrid cloud environments through dual-source virtualization wherein companies value security, performance and support in a quest to build the new IT paradigm.
Organizations worldwide are using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to run virtual desktops in the
datacenter and deliver these to employees as a managed service. End users gain a familiar, personalized
environment they can access anywhere from any device, while administrators gain control and security. With
VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), IT professionals can implement a VDI infrastructure to help
drive down operational costs, enhance security, and support a mobile workforce.
The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.
