Threats to web application are becoming increasing complex - from malware and advanced persistent threats to data leaks. This guide is made to address your needs and provides a step by step to assess your security needs.
Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
Spam looks like a simple enough issue until you have to try to define it: after all, we all think we know it when we see it. Most people have a working definition along the lines of “email I don’t want.” While that’s perfectly understandable, it is difficult to implement technical solutions based on such a subjective definition. Read this paper to learn why SPAM is more than just unwanted email.
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.
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.
From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.

In the fast moving web environment, where hackers frequently
change their tactics, a defense-in-depth strategy of deploying the
ProxySG in conjunction with an NGFW is essential for providing
optimal protection. The ProxySG is engineered to withstand
evasion techniques, making it a perfect complement to your NGFW. Its leading web-proxy technology identifies and blocks malicious web content, and its open architecture allows integration with best-of-breed products for an enhanced security posture.
These top 10 advantages represent just a few of the reasons why
SWG and NGFW technologies are complementary in nature and
why enterprises should implement them together for a layered
defense against advanced attacks and targeted threats.
