Can your organization afford to wait until after an attack happens to protect your users and your data?
Perimeter security provides visibility and control for employee activity only when employees remain on a corporate network. What about roaming users who bypass the VPN? Or employees working in cloud applications?
Web gateways only protect employees from threats over web ports 80 and 443. Today’s security must provide comprehensive protection across all ports and protocols to fill the gaps in the security stack.
Hear from Eric Ahlm, Research Director at Gartner and Meg Diaz, Head of Product Marketing for Cisco Umbrella. Eric and Meg will address the challenges companies face as they compare modern convenience with the known risks of relinquishing visibility and control, especially as more sensitive data moves to the cloud.
Join us for the guidance you need to stay ahead of the curve in 2018. We’ll discuss the right answer for protecting data in the digital age.
Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.
Unlike appliances, our cloud security platform protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protection extends to every device connected to the network — even IoT. Umbrella truly is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection.
Plus, many organizations are now using direct internet connections at branch offices, which means employees and guest users don’t get the protection of your traditional security stack. Not only are more offices connecting directly to the internet — it’s estimated that 70% of branch offices already have some direct internet access — but attackers recognize these weak points in their targets and have started exploiting them more.
To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet.
In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.
Securing your infrastructure, your customer interactions and protecting
your data are critical to preserving your reputation and your bottom
line. Many cyber attacks remain undetected for up to eight months1
and can cost an organization an average of 11 million USD.2
Today’s cyber actors are becoming more sophisticated, agile and capable
of getting past any network security. Organizations must evolve, replacing
traditional defensive security strategies with a proactive, intelligence-driven
offense to prevent and disrupt these threats.
IBM® i2® Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence
solution that enables organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting
into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive
offense.It helps organizations uncover critical insights about their
threats and threat actors so they can mitigate and counter more threats
with a combination of multi-dimensional visualte analysis capabilities
Cybercriminals are creating and deploying new threats every day that are more destructive than ever before. While you may have more people devoted to IT security, established businesses like yours are vulnerable to a wider array of attacks. To keep your organization safe, it's imperative to stay at least a few steps ahead of the bad guys. Do you know where the threats are coming from?
Unlike Wi-Fi access, 3G mobile broadband is available anywhere users have a mobile phone signal-from. From taxis, to trains, to remote stretches of road - your workforce will have access to critical data. If your company is even considering about deploying mobile broadband to its workforce, read this guide now!

"Storage system architectures are moving away from monolithic scale-up approaches and adopting scale-out storage – providing a powerful and flexible way to respond to the inevitable data growth and data management challenges in today’s environments. With extensive data growth demands, there needs to be an increase in the levels of storage and application availability, performance, and scalability.
Access this technical report that provides an overview of NetApp clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 and shows how it incorporates industry-leading unified architecture, non-disruptive operations, proven storage efficiency, and seamless scalability."
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
The exact number of AETs is unknown, but there may be hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall. Get this free report today.

They say content is king. But if your content isn’t protected, it’s a king with no clothes.
The proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace, and the availability of cloud services designed for consumers, can lead to improper sharing of corporate data. Information that leaves your firewalls can live forever, and without adequate protection, can end up in the wrong hands.
This report by Ovum takes a look at the challenges of information security and explores how a new generation of Information Rights Management (IRM) technology directly addresses the most critical concerns.
Key topics include:
• The threat posed by Dropbox and other consumer-grade FSS providers
• The need for lifetime control of information and content
• The ability to perform audits, and locate files, anywhere, and who accessed them
• How next-generation IRM technology is available to add a new layer of security to every file

The truth is that they can get a lot worse – and no one is immune. Your company’s data has never been at greater risk.
There is no doubt that 2014 was a dire year for many organizations, as they failed to properly protect their computer systems and the data held upon them.
As if it wasn’t bad enough keeping on top of new zero-day vulnerabilities, targeted attacks, and revelations of state-sponsored espionage, users are potentially exposing companies’ most important data by not following best practices and using consumer-grade cloud services that aren’t built with enterprise needs in mind.
An ever more mobile workforce wants to work on their files remotely but may be taking dangerous risks with sensitive corporate data at the same time.
In this white paper, we detail some of the biggest computer security threats of the last year and offer some predictions on what we can expect to see in 2015.
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.
