In spite of the billions of dollars invested in security, web-borne threats are still on the rise. Enterprises need a security system that can enforce granular web access policies on all devices used to access the web from inside and outside the network perimeter.
Today’s threats to endpoints and data are more complex, more numerous, more varied —and changing every second. McAfee understands next-generation security in the context of your devices, additional protection technologies, and central management.
There is no single anti-malware product that can block all malware infiltration and subsequent activity. The only way to combat the malware threats is through an end-to-end, integrated, real-time, context-aware, holistically-managed system.
This white paper examines five steps to better security that today's retail businesses can't afford to ignore on their networks - from application control to data loss prevention - to ensure business continuity and PCI DSS compliance.
The emergence of covert information theft as a key tactic of malware propagators. Most importantly, the paper highlights the crucial danger points for any business that doesn't defend itself against viruses which operate in the background.

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
• Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
• More comprehensive signature and URL database
• Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location

This whitepaper deals with the rise of mobility, BYOD and social networking, and how these trends have led cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in browsers and mobile apps. For example, more than 30,000 mostly legitimate websites become infected with malware every day. From drive-by downloads to spearfishing to XML injection, web-borne threats represent a significant new risk for businesses. The report describes how to stay on top of this changing threat landscape and prevent damaging attacks with:
• 100% protection against known viruses
• Industry-leading URL filtering and IP protection via the world’s largest threat database
• Extended protection for smartphones and tablets
• Simplified web-based management
Previously, the network at the City of Lake Wales didn't possess any firewalls, intrusion protection or web filtering solutions. As a result the network, which is spread out to multiple locations (including law enforcement), was left wide open to security breaches and caused system performance problems as users unwittingly picked up spyware and malware.
This paper outlines the types of threats that leverage the Internet as a means of delivery and the risks that they pose to your organization. Learn the key drivers of a corporate security policy and how you can protect against HTTP-based threats using Web filtering as part of a multi-layered content security strategy.
