The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

Code signing is at a crossroads. In many enterprises, the traditional approach remains standard procedure: you purchase a code-signing certificate, download it, and deploy it locally for all your code-signing needs. When carefully managed, this approach can still be very effective in guarding against malware. But recent events have shown that many companies are finding it a challenge to manage their code signing certificate deployments—and failures in certificate management can have serious consequences.
To discover how our Secure App Service solution can help you manage your codesigning efforts and provide enterprise-level support, all at a predictable cost, download this whitepaper today and find out more.
SecureWorks provides an early warning system for evolving cyber threats, enabling organisations to prevent, detect, rapidly respond to and predict cyber attacks.

Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Integrated Threat Management For Dummies, IBM Security Limited Edition, lays the foundation for effective tools and techniques that work together to help counter today’s advanced threats. Regardless of your role in the IT security organization, threat management tools and techniques will influence your job. Your role determines the part you play to effectively manage threats, including those targeting the cloud and your company’s data.
If you are a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or security manager, this book explains in detail the types of tools you need to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to security incidents. If you’re in general business management, you’ll better understand the risks associated with enterprise computing and the reasons why a comprehensive portfolio of security tools that work well together is so important.
Cyberbreaches aren’t just in the news—they are the news. Yet headlines rarely mention the No. 1 source of those breaches: weak or stolen passwords. Whether they involve malware, hacking, phishing, or social engineering, the vast majority of breaches begin with account compromise and credential theft, followed by dormant lateral network movement and data exfiltration. In fact, weak or stolen passwords account for a staggering 81% of breaches, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report.
Not surprisingly, a new Okta-sponsored IDG survey finds that identity access management (IAM) is a top priority for nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT and security leaders. Yet the same survey uncovers widespread concern that their current IAM implementations are falling short. Just one worrisome example: Fewer than one-third (30%) of respondents report a good or better ability to detect a compromise of credentials.
The following report explores the gap between respondents’ aspiratio

Cloud datacenter security is becoming imperative in the new age of malware attacks. To stay competitive and secure, organizations are turning to smart networking in an effort to close the datacenter security gap. The combination of VMware NSX, AirWatch Tunnel and Horizon View helps close this gap and simplifies security management for IT professionals. With the upcoming prevalence of authentication and identity management in an organization’s infrastructure, the need to delegate and define network access continues to highlight the important role of hybrid cloud security that addresses all end-user devices.
When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities.
The NGFW should:
1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection
2. Provide complete and unified management
3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints
4. Offer comprehensive network visibility
5. Help reduce complexity and costs
6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions
7. Provide investment protection
This white paper explains this checklist in depth and provides examples of the benefits a truly effective NGFW solution can deliver.
This solution brief outlines how security operations must evolve to a continuous operation focused on assessing readiness, acquiring and integrating threat intelligence, and increasing the speed of threat response capability
