Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
Lax SSH security and management can lead to significant gaps in security controls. Cybercriminals target these gaps to gain full access to sensitive, regulated, and valuable systems and data.

For many organizations, managing network vulnerabilities and risks is a lesson in frustration. Vulnerability scans are typically conducted in response to compliance mandates, and they can reveal up to tens of thousands of exposures—depending upon network size. Scan results are often a complex puzzle of misconfigured devices, unpatched software, and outdated or obsolete systems. And security administrators must struggle to quickly identify and remediate or mitigate the exposures that pose the greatest risk.

The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.
The digital, connected world is fundamentally changing the dynamics of the financial services industry. Consumers expect anytime and anywhere access with a customer experience commensurate with the Internet world, while fintech start-ups disrupt established value chains, driving a need to deliver faster innovation. This is creating tremendous pressure on the network, with escalating demands for performance and agility, while cost control and compliance imperatives remain as dominant as ever. This paper looks at optimal strategies for CIOs and CTOs, exploring how the future network needs to evolve to both drive operational effectiveness and enable business change, while assessing key investment and strategic considerations for equipping the network for the digital financial institution.
Mobile is the new normal for users to connect and consume content, you need to consider apps, mobile integration,security, analytics, development tools, life-cycle management, various mobile stakeholders, and the overall enterprise mobile ecosystem.
Part of a strong foundation for cloud-first, mobile-first IT includes supporting BYOD. BYOD can improve end user satisfaction and enable employees to work anywhere from any device. To really get these benefits though, the end-user experience must provide seamless access to the applications end-users want and need. Accomplishing this starts with extending app provisioning to mobile devices, and automatically deprovisioning mobile access as part of the identity lifecycle. For the best user experience, you’ll want automatic configuration of native mobile applications with mobile SSO, security settings and app settings like usernames, URLs and tenant IDs.
Provisioning devices to users should be simply an extension of the foundational identity lifecycle management system. And, mobility management should enable IT teams to implement simple policies to enable and secure access from mobile.
This eGuide provides an overview of how Okta can power BYOD programs with integrated identity and mobili

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a significant step change for data protection across EU member states. The EU GDPR also brings with it serious implications for organisations who suffer a breach. People will always make mistakes – and in busy and stressful workplaces such as banks and insurance firms the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help avoid mistakes, sensitive client information remains at risk. This white paper provides financial services organisations with a four-step process to ensure compliance.
Patients trust healthcare organisations with vast amounts of their sensitive data – not just details on their medical and social wellbeing, but also personally identifiable information such as dates of birth and residential addresses.
People will always make mistakes – and, unfortunately, in busy and stressful workplaces, such as hospitals and medical clinics, the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help overcome this to avoid mistakes, sensitive patient information remains at risk.
To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics.

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.
