While threat prevention continues to improve with the use of advanced techniques, adversaries are outpacing these advances requiring security teams to implement threat detection and response programs. Security teams are often addressing the process haphazardly, using disconnected point tools and manual processes that consume too many analysts and result in slow mean-time to detection and response. While EDR has enabled security teams to take important steps forward for detection and response, ultimately it can only look at the endpoints which limits the scope of threats that can be detected and if something is detected, limits the view of who and what is affected and thus, how best to respond. ESG therefore recommends looking beyond the endpoint and utilizing natively integrated security solutions across more than just one vector to improve detection and response times. The more data you can knit together, the more effective you can be to uncover the security incidents most dangerous to your organization.
Watch this webinar to learn about the value of XDR: connecting detection and response across multiple security layers. Dave Gruber, senior analyst at ESG, shares recent research and his views on the evolution of threat detection and response; making the case for expanding the capabilities and expectations of detection and response solutions. Wendy Moore, VP of Product Marketing, discusses Trend Micro’s own XDR strategy and the unique value that Trend Micro can bring to detection, investigation and response.

Trends such as mobility, Web 2.0, and consumerization are shattering traditional notions of IT control. As a result, IT security organizations are struggling to defend against a more formidable hacker adversary at a time when they have less visibility and control over their IT environment. As part of our Cybersecurity Masters webinar series, ESET would like to invite you to attend these expert presentations by Forrester and ESET.

The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up.
Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.
The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection.
Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organization’s network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and
land with the victim’s infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victim’s business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the

Security spending is expected to reach $120 billion by 2021, yet the amount of data loss events seems to be increasing. Legacy DLP solutions, which rely on traditional threat blocking policies, have been unable to evolve to address these threats. Organizations need to fundamentally rethink how they address cybersecurity for today’s modern threats. Watch this webcast to understand how taking a Risk-Adaptive approach enables security to fluctuate based on the threat environment. See how Dynamic Data Protection, an industry-first solution, uses human-centric behavior analytics to continuously determine the risk cyber identities pose, based on their actions.

Hybrid cloud security is a hot topic, especially with the massive growth of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure™ and Google Cloud. With the emergence of the hybrid cloud, where workloads are deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud, security professionals are constantly being challenged to evolve their security practices to adapt to this new architecture.
Trend Micro Hybrid Cloud Security, powered by XGen™, takes a blended approach. It combines multiple cross-generational threat defense techniques for protecting hybrid environments. When one technique isn’t effective against a given threat, another will step in to eliminate the threat.
Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.
Web-based systems are essential tools for running business processes and delivering services to customers. However, phishing and online fraud undermine customer confidence.

Two of the oldest and most common attacks used against web applications, SQL injection attacks and cross-site scripting attacks (XSS), continue to impact thousands of websites and millions of users each year. Finding these exposures quickly is essential in order to prevent system compromise and avoid information leakage. SIEM solutions can be invaluable in this effort by collecting and correlating the data you need to identify patterns that signal an attack.

The current era in cyber security is characterized by three fundamental challenges: the complexity of the enterprise network and connected infrastructure, the speed of newage attacks, and the strain of overwhelmed incident responders.
In many ways, the expansion of networks and continual adoption of new technologies - from cloud services to the Internet of Things - has expanded the attack surface and introduced new entry-points through which attackers can gain a foothold. This, combined with the ready availability of exploit kits on the Dark Web, has led to the ‘vicious circle of the SOC’, where incident responders are so busy fire-fighting that they rarely have time to implement the critical patches that would prevent the problem at source.
As security teams struggle to keep up with the rising volume of routine attacks, a new generation of cyberthreat has also emerged, characterized in large part by fast-moving threats that make an impact well before humans have time to respond. Thes
