Security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). But this Internet protocol doesn’t have to be a vulnerability.
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

Traditional antivirus (AV) is not the solution to preventing security breaches on the endpoint – it is the problem. AV is no longer
effective at stopping today’s cyberthreats. Although AV satisfies many regulatory, governance and compliance requirements, it saddles organizations with hidden costs while providing little to no real security value.
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said
that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to
first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are
so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the
field can argue against them.
Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.
Data breaches are on the rise. The number of breach notifcations issued by the New York State Attorney General’s ofce, for example, has risen 40% during 2016 compared with the same period a year earlier.
Traditional antivirus or intrusion prevention systems are no match for the new breed of attacks; enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.

Many small and medium-sized businesses do not have adequate network security. Here's how to make sure you do. Now more than ever, you depend on your network for your most important business operations, such as communication, inventory, billing, sales, and trading with partners. Yet up to now, you might have held off on protecting your network, for several reasons.
Spyware is on the rise and has been the cause of many data breaches. Stopping it needs to be a strategic part of an organization's overall security plan. Reactive signature-based anti-virus and firewall technology is not a complete solution to prevention. Read this white paper to learn the top five behaviors associated with data theft and how advanced behavioral detection solutions is an effective technology for stopping spyware and can identify and prevent legitimate applications from being misused.
Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was jointly developed to provide additive testing to the commodity antivirus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST. CylancePROTECT® was tested against five competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro. The tests were performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. Read more in the AV-TEST report.

The right Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) solution can help IT operations deliver superior performance for users. When incorporated into your IT security initiatives, deep packet inspection can strengthen your existing antivirus software, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) defenses.
Viruses have been on the attack for more than 20 years, and the cost of dealing with them is escalating. Too many malcode (malicious code) attacks by viruses, worms, Trojans and the like are breaking through today's most prevalent system defenses: Antivirus (AV) programs. This whitepaper will discuss the full impact of virus disasters and what historically has been done to combat the problem.

The IT threat landscape has changed from individual hackers disrupting network operations to organized crime stealing confidential information. Antivirus technology must be joined by a coordinated, multilayered defense that includes proactive vulnerability-based intrusion prevention, file-based intrusion prevention, and inbound and outbound traffic control.
