The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was first introduced in 2004 to increase controls over credit card holder data and to reduce the chances of credit card fraud. Validation is required annually and over the years, it has evolved with new revisions periodically. The latest one, version 3.2 came into force in April 2016. Until the end of January 2018, PCI DSS and Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS) are considered best practice to implement, and starting February 1, 2018, are considered a requirement.
OAuth is an emerging Web standard for authorizing limited access to applications and data. It is designed so that users can grant restricted access to resources they ownsuch as pictures residing on a site like Flickr or SmugMugto a third-party client like a photo printing site. In the past, it was common to ask the user to share their username and password with the client, a deceptively simple request masking unacceptable security risk. In contrast to this, OAuth promotes a least privilege model, allowing a user to grant limited access to their applications and data by issuing a token with limited capability.
Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the companys
most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers,
partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions
between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a
high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks,
preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved.
A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a
rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all
business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that
could help improve the situation. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the
leading PIM solution
APIs represent a great opportunity for the enterprise to integrate applications quickly and easily. But APIs can be a double-edged sword: promising agility, while at the same time increasing risk. But if an organization can address API security as an architectural challenge long before any development takes place, it can reap the rewards of this technological breakthrough safely and securely.
CA Live API Creator creates application back-ends exposing enterprise-class REST/JSON APIs, including access to existing
data and applications. It enables developers to create new REST endpoints that join data across diverse data sources using
role-based security and interactive testing.
The CA Live API Creator Reactive Logic model yields systems that are highly scalable and reliable. Its optimized services
run more efficiently and with less fragility than services manually coded by skilled developers and architects.
Increasingly, enterprises are opening their data and applications to partners, developers, mobile apps and cloud
services. APIs provide a standardized way to open up information assets across the web, mobile devices, serviceoriented
architecture (SOA) and the cloud. However, to make API information sharing safe, reliable and cost-effective,
enterprises must deal with critical security, performance management and data adaptation challenges.
CA API Management combines advanced functionality for back-end integration, mobile optimization, cloud
orchestration and developer management. It is unique in its ability to address the full breadth of enterprise
API management challenges.
Data security risk caused by third parties is a pervasive problem.
Yet, many organizations granting remote privileged access to third-party users leave gaps that represent significant security risks.
If youre like most organizations today, you frequently grant vendors, contractors and other non-staff members access to internal networks and systems. These privileged users remotely administer your operating systems, databases or applications using their own endpoint devices.
Download the eBook to learn the five best practices to control security risk brought on by third parties.
It is now widely recognized that antivirus software is insufficient to protect organizations, large or small, from advanced threats and targeted attacks. In response, organizations are increasingly looking to adopt proactive approaches to security, such as application control, to ensure the fidelity and security of intellectual property.

Increasing staff productivity while lowering costs tied to this growing enterprise resource. A productive mobile program starts with holistic research and planning. Approaching mobility from a lifecycle standpoint will help an organization focus on optimizing each stage of the process. Having some guidance on what to expect at the different points of the mobility lifecycle is valuable for planning purposes.
A team approach and careful consideration of operational and security issues will pave the way for effective guidance. The drivers are many, but big draws include the potential for greater productivity giving people anywhere, anytime access to information via devices theyre comfortable with.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivityto name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
Its official BYOD is here, and theres no turning back. Mobile Device Management (MDM) gives employees the freedom to connect whenever, wherever for increased productivity and a better work-life balance. But every smartphone, tablet and notebook is a potential gateway for unauthorized applications, malware and other security threats.
Even with the latest devices, your mobile workforce may not have
what they need to get the job done. Without a strategy to provide them with data and applications, theyre forced to work without them or find workarounds that can compromise security.
Todays workers are constantly on the move, and IT departments are scrambling to keep up. Access to email is not enough. You must address the legacy applications that your employees cant easily access from their mobile devices, knowing that app development can be cost prohibitive and complex. And you have to have a strategy in place to secure and manage every application in use.
A growing number of organizations are realizing the benefits of mobile devices, including increased productivity, enhanced efficiency and speedier response times. Yet while the use of mobile devices typically leads to lower costs and additional revenue opportunities, it also brings challenges associated with device and application procurement, data connections, service costs, content management and most important security.
We get the issues - as mobility is taking productivity to new places, complexity is taking IT departments for a ride. Read this white paper to learn how CDW can help deliver the solutions to meet your mobile application management needs.
Smartphone, tablet computer and ultrabook purchases number in the hundreds of millions per year. This onslaught of devices underscores the move to mobility in many organizations. Read on to learn how CDW helps in building end to end mobile strategy.
Endpoint security is at a critical juncture. Increasingly, employees
at organizations of all sizes are using a wider variety than ever of
desktop and mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and
laptops, as they work from broadly dispersed locations, including
home offices. Often, organizations are permitting and even
encouraging employees to use their own devices under BYOD
(bring your own device) policies. With these devices, employees
are accessing not only corporate data and applications, but also
social media, banking and shopping sites. Download this white paper to learn more about endpoint security.
As you take advantage of the operational and economic benefits of virtualization and the cloud, its critical to secure your virtualized data centers, cloud deployments, and hybrid environments effectively. Because if you neglect any aspect of security, you leave gaps that open the door to web threats and serious data breaches. And, to meet data privacy and compliance regulations, you will need to demonstrate that you have the appropriate security, regardless of your computing environment.

Organizations around the world are embracing the economic and operational benefits of cloud computing. Whether organizations are extending internal resources or fully deploying on Microsoft Azure, the ability to take advantage of the business benefits of cloud require that organizations continue to meet key security requirements. Azure delivers a trusted cloud infrastructure on which customers can design, build and manage their own cloud applications and infrastructure. While Azure provides security controls for the infrastructure and change to virtualization layers, deploying organizations are responsible for deploying and maintaining security for the guest operating systems, applications, and data in order to protect against malware attacks, zero-day vulnerabilities and data breaches. Read this white paper to lean more about Trend Micro Instant-On Cloud Security for Microsoft Azure.
Security in the cloud is a shared responsibility. That means customers and cloud service providers must work together to protect applications and data, meet compliance regulations, and ensure business continuity. Watch this video to learn more about cloud security through Trend Micro Deep Security.
