For nearly a decade, Cisco has published comprehensive cybersecurity reports that are designed to keep security teams and the businesses they support apprised of cyber threats and vulnerabilities—and informed about steps they can take to improve security and cyber-resiliency.
In these reports, we strive to alert defenders to the increasing sophistication of threats and the techniques that adversaries use to compromise users, steal information, and create disruption.

The experts agree that AV software is a must-have for business PC users, but it is necessary to take great care in choosing one. In this brief, you'll find that user experiences with AV solutions can vary widely.
There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people?
The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.
This technical case study addressing key and certificate security issues is designed for security conscious enterprises to understand real-life attack scenarios that threaten their businesses in today’s world. This white paper demonstrates a recent attack that used cryptographic keys and digital certificates as well as guidance on how to protect certificates and keys and quickly discover and remediate breaches. This paper should be read by more technical IT security sta? who are interested in detailed attack methods and remediation tactics. The executive summary is intended for IT Security leaders (CISOs and their direct reports) and addresses the proof-of-concept attack impacts on the business.
Gartner expects that by 2017, more than 50% of network attacks will use SSL/TLS. Yet most organizations lack the ability to decrypt and inspect SSL communications to detect threats. The ability to quickly decrypt and inspect SSL traffic in real time to detect threats is imperative. Download this Solution Brief: Eliminate Blind Spots in SSL Encrypted Traffic to learn how.
The rampant rise in cyberattacks and the growing concerns and regulations over data privacy are compelling the increased use of SSL/TLS. But managing even more SSL/TLS to protect data is challenging. See how you can safely expand and rely on SSL/TLS to achieve your data security and privacy goals.
The SANS 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense offers a blueprint of prioritized guidance to reduce risk. New updates to the SANS 20 signify the growing need to secure digital certificates and cryptographic keys to preserve trusted communications for all of your critical systems and your organization’s interactions with customers and partners.
Too often cyberattacks on keys and certificates are successful because basic security controls are not present or not properly configured. Download the Solution Brief to learn how you can effectively build scalable controls and reduce risk:
• Manage the rapid growth in certificates
• Gain visibility into where keys and certificates are located
• Secure your certificates against cyberattacks
• Enforce automation of certificate issuance and renewal
Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.

Why the cloud is critical for web security
How real-world DDoS attacks are testing the limits of on-site solutions
Discover the questions some vendors don’t want you to ask
DDoS attackers launch hundreds of DDoS attacks every day. When a DDoS attack strikes an organization, panic is common. No one knows why systems and applications are failing, who to call, or what questions to ask. Meanwhile, senior leaders want answers.
Planning ahead and being prepared is your best defense against DDoS attacks.
This white paper explores best practices for building and maintaining a DDoS protection plan. You’ll learn what to expect from a DDoS attack, how to prepare, what to put in a DDoS runbook, and how to test your plan.
Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems.
This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.
To ensure that “quasi-insiders” or third parties do not contribute to your enterprise’s attack vector, it’s imperative to develop a third-party governance process to mitigate risk. Read on to find out how.
When your solution needs deep packet inspection (DPI) application awareness as a key enabling feature, highly reliable and accurate identification of network traffic and applications - in real time - is an expected requirement. Whether it’s for software defined networks to enable policy control and critical traffic steering or to protect corporate networks, IoT devices, and cloud platforms from malicious attacks, it’s crucial to choose the right DPI solution.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
Reports of cyberattacks now dominate the headlines. And while most high-profile attacks—including the major breaches at JP Morgan, Anthem and Slack—originated outside of the victimized organizations, theft and misuse of data by privileged users is on the rise.
In fact, 69% of enterprise security professionals said they have experienced the theft or corruption of company information at the hands of trusted insiders.1 There are also cases where a company’s third-party contractors, vendors or partners have been responsible for network breaches, either through malicious or inadvertent behavior.
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) creates software that fuels transformation for companies and enables them to seize the opportunities of the application economy.

Available as a rack-mounted, hardened hardware appliance, an
Open Virtualization Format (OVF) Virtual Appliance or an Amazon
Machine Instance (AMI), CA Privileged Access Manager enhances
security by protecting sensitive administrative credentials, such as
root and administrator passwords, controlling privileged user access
and proactively enforcing policies and monitoring and recording
privileged user activity across all IT resources.
Privileged identity, accounts and credentials are core, critical assets for enterprises that must be highly protected through a combination of technology and processes which are enabled by privileged access management.
Delivering that protection is instrumental in breaking the data breach kill chain, helping to prevent attacks and mitigating the impact of those that do occur.
