Attack Surface Manager (ASM) gives security teams unprecedented power to easily implement a cyber hygiene program to harden their networks against malicious lateral movement of cyberattackers. This paper provides an overview of common ways that Illusive's customers are using Attack Surface Manager, including fortifying PAM/PIM solutions, detecting insider threats and malicious insider activity, and providing powerful, automated Red Team functions.
Do you know how attackers can move once they’re inside your network? The access footprint changes constantly as users log on and off, restart systems, change roles, and access resources. Until now, these conditions have only been visible when skilled analysts inspect individual systems. Attack Surface Manager reveals hidden credentials and paths to critical systems so you can continuously impede attacker movement—without impeding the business.

Helping agencies prepare and respond to this threat is a key reason
GSA and DHS developed the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation
(CDM) program in 2013. The program was designed to provide
agencies with quick access to automated network monitoring
and risk-assessment tools that are able to quickly prioritize and
remediate security vulnerabilities. DHS is authorized to pay for the
first two years of the program as an incentive for implementing
CDM. Agencies are making progress, but as Kent’s statement
suggests, there is still work to do.
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

Threats to the security of your network will never completely go away, but the ability to prepare for, recognize and quickly remediate these threats should be a part of day-to-day company operations. This white paper gives you eight essentials for managing vulnerabilities in a network including internal and external assessments, how frequently you should run scans for threats and the importance of broadening testing beyond basic network services and operating systems.
McAfee Labs foresees an increase in threats related to social networking sites, banking security, and botnets, as well as attacks targeting users, businesses, and applications. However, in 2010 McAfee also expects to see an increase in the effectiveness of law enforcement to fight back against cybercrime is also anticipated. Read this report to learn more about what to expect in 2010.
Medium organizations around the globe are increasingly concerned about cyberthreats, and the rising number of incidents shared publicly certainly justifies their worries. In the first half of 2009, for example, McAfee Labs saw almost as much new malware as it did in all of 2008. At the same time, most organizations have frozen or cut their IT security budgets. Threats up, budgets down. This is what we call the "security paradox."

While vulnerability assessments are essential, considering vulnerability data in a vacuum greatly limits your ability to prioritize your action plan in an effective way. Without the context of which vulnerabilities are the most severe, which are actively being targeted, which are on critical assets, etc, you may waste time checking things off the list without actually improving security. Join us for this session to learn how to integrate threat intelligence into your vulnerability management strategy.
The Application Usage And Threat Report provides an analysis of applications and their link to cyber threats within the enterprise. The report summarizes network traffic assessments performed worldwide in more than 5,500 organizations where 2,100 applications, 16,000 unique threats and billions of threat logs were observed.
Looking at IT security history, the bad guys were always far more sophisticated than the people who tried to stop them. Even if companies or the government could conceive of IT security it was almost impossible to achieve it because of the lack of knowledgeable security professionals out there and the lack of security protection tools in the marketplace.
