Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
The Cisco® Incident Response team is led by elite security specialists who can uncover the source of threats by analyzing and synthesizing intelligence from multiple sources. These sought-after specialists consistently deliver resolution in a shorter timeframe, returning businesses like yours to normal. Fast.

Mobile security is making the role of today’s CISO more complicated than ever. Watch the webinar for a discussion of current threats, a review of mobile security solutions, and best practices for adoption and implementation.
With the rate of cloud spending predicted to outpace overall IT spending six to one over the next few years, organizations are rightly concerned about ensuring that applications in the cloud enjoy the same level of security as apps deployed in data centers. Using the public cloud does alter your attack surface area—and leveraging multiple public and private clouds (aka multi-cloud) does so even more. Some threats get bigger, some get smaller. Some even go away, or at least drift out of your control, while new threats should move front and center in your security thinking.
A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network.
Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
"CyberEdge Group’s fifth-annual Cyberthreat Defense Report is a comprehensive review of the perceptions of 1,200 IT security professionals representing 17 countries and 19 industries.
The new 2018 report provides the most geographically comprehensive view of IT security perceptions in our industry. With a 360-degree view of organizations’ security threats, security professionals can identify issues facing the market and know how their peers are reacting. Key insights from this year’s report include:
• ‘Lack of skilled personnel’ is the greatest inhibitor to IT security’s success
• 77% of networks were breached last year – the first decline in five years!
• 12% of a typical enterprise IT budget is spent on security
• 55% of organizations were compromised by ransomware last year

It’s important to provide effective inbound and outbound network
traffic control to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate
requests. Effectively managing, monitoring, controlling, and
filtering network traffic are key actions that can help do so and
further enable a robust cloud security infrastructure.
Filtering Cloud Network Traffic and Preventing Threats
This white paper published by Frost & Sullivan and Cisco examines the role, capabilities, and advantages of service providers in the DDoS mitigation process, as well as how this role might develop in the future.

To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
Security is a looming issue for organizations. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new organization opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Organizations need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
Mobility, social media, analytics and the cloud are revolutionizing how data is accessed, used, and secured for small to midsize businesses. With data security threats are on the rise, keep your business running with Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

The endpoint security market continues to expand with vendors old and new marketing their solutions as “next generation” game-changers. However, closer inspection reveals that many new solutions have been built on old platforms, many of which still rely heavily on signature-based detection and obsolete architecture. Navigating this crowded vendor landscape can be challenging — how does the buyer find the true next-generation protection today’s targeted, advanced threats demand?
A new white paper, “The Five Essential Elements of Next -Generation Endpoint Protection,” offers guidance on how to see through the hype and understand the critical must-have elements that meet true next-generation criteria and set a new standard in EPP.

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.

High-profile data breaches continue to make headlines as organizations struggle to manage information security in the face of rapidly changing applications, data centers, and the cloud. Against this backdrop, data masking has emerged as one of the most effective ways to protect sensitive test data from insider and outsider threats alike.
While masking is now the de facto standard for protecting non-production data, implementing it alongside virtual data technologies has elevated its effectiveness even further.
PCs have been the core productivity tool for organizations for years, but the workforce and technology trends are changing dramatically. With Windows 10, hypermobile employees, and increasing security threats, it’s more critical than ever for IT to understand how the latest PCs have evolved to tackle these challenges.
