NAC is a multifaceted framework to thoroughly control who and what gets access to network resources, and help keep malware from entering the enterprise. Today, there are huge challenges to implementing as-yet immature NAC solutions on an enterprise-wide basis, including convoluted integration requirements, inadequate inspection capabilities, and weak policy management.
This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and even routers doing deep packet inspection. In this book you’ll find out all about AETs, and get useful pointers and advice to help you secure your organization. If you’re working in government, the military, banking, industry, e-commerce or with other critical infrastructures, read this book to find out what you’re up against and how to better protect against advanced evasions.

The financial services industry deals with a commodity that is primarily electronic — money. Consequently it spends more per employee on IT than any other industry. Despite this, there is a worrying tendency for information that should be confidential to end up in the public domain. Why is this and what can be done?
Making corporate data accessible through Wi-Fi networks means intruders and other unwanted visitors can easily access such networks if proper precautions and tools aren't used to protect them. This paper will discuss best practices in all five areas to secure the enterprise network, whether wired or wireless.

This paper is a synopsis of the presentations given at the Preventsys "CISO Breakfast Series," a succession of seminars given across North America in January and February 2005. The speakers for each breakfast consisted of security professionals and executives who provided their views on how to more effectively align information security with business initiatives.
For the first time in several years, there has been a sharp increase in denial of service (DOS) attacks. In the past, these attacks have been directed at the networks of large companies. Now we are seeing the emergence of attacks targeting smaller companies and higher layers in the computing stack. Intruders are using low-bandwidth attacks disguised as legitimate transactions to bypass firewalls and basic intrusion prevention measures. Organizations need a better way to combat and prevent these attacks, and the right ADC can provide the solution. Learn how Citrix NetScaler can help protect against DOS attacks in the report, Citrix NetScaler: A Powerful Defense Against DOS Attacks (link).

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.
Businesses today are under intense pressure to open up their networks, comply with increasingly rigorous regulatory requirements, AND ensure their IT assets are protected from attacks. This white paper explores these security challenges and explains how host-based Intrusion Prevention Systems play a critical role in an organization's overall security strategy.
Intrusion Detection Systems have ceased to live up to their name and have lost their ability to spot today’s sophisticated intrusions.
Consequently, cyber attackers are taking advantage of it by launching more evasive and strategic threats that spread rapidly within networks. And security teams are left without the proper tools or insight to identify intrusions that pose the biggest risk.
Managing network vulnerabilities will be the biggest challenge for C-Level executives in the coming years. Intrusions are more frequent and more malicious, so the security of corporate networks, and therefore the security of the entire corporation are dependent on the ability to quickly identify, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities in the network.
