"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
security, compliance, and management of day-to-day end-user environments

Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well.
S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each.
In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.
Guido Jouret makes the case for surveillance that is no longer about a defensive security posture, but an offensive business imperative. Customers want to analyze the data they're collecting from these IP-enabled systems, from heat maps to the tracking of their customers to tighter integration between physical security infrastructure and other data center applications. The time has never been better.

It’s possible to lead the world in an industry—medicine in this case—and to simultaneously lag behind when it comes to network security. One large national hospital system faced serious IT challenges. Network investment had been put off to the point of opening critical security vulnerabilities. A massive attack surface and limited visibility meant a threat could penetrate the network and remain hidden for months. It put critical systems, employees, patients, and the hospital’s reputation at risk.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit.
Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment.
This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.

The rising intensity and sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks has created a precarious environment for businesses charged with protecting their customers’ personal data. In 2012, credit card and debit card fraud resulted in losses amounting to $11.27 billion. In January 2014 alone, a single cyber-attack exposed more than 105 million identities. To steal this data, one option is to target the point at which a retailer first acquires that card data – the Point-of-Sale (PoS) system. PoS systems are increasingly being targeted by these attackers, which is why it's more important than ever to protect these devices and the systems they are connected to. Read more into the research on these attacks in this Symantec Security Response special report.
Exposing data or suffering downtime not only creates risks to patient safety, supports identity theft and damages the hospital's reputation, but can also result in signi?cant HIPAA penalties. The costs include the time your staff spends responding to the attack and lost productivity when systems are unavailable or work needs to be redone. Investing in computer and network security is a smart ?nancial decision for hospitals.
