As the threat landscape evolves, organizations have accepted the fact that they have to take a more proactive detection approach to advanced threats rather than relying on traditional defenses. As a result, customers have turned to detection and response tools that allow for proactive “hunting” for Indicators of Attack (IoA) and reactive “sweeping” for indicators of compromise (IoCs). Once found, those tools are required to automatically respond to attacks or to at least provide for an action from the Incident Response (IR) staff. Unfortunately, due to the number and complexity of both these attacks and the detection/response tools, organizations struggle to hire enough qualified staff and stay on top of the discovered threats. This is compounded by a worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage. Managed detection and response (XDR) provides advanced threat hunting, detection, and response as a service to organizations that seek assistance for their own IR staff, or for those who wish to o

If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling with cloud security. And if your organization is one of the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) clouds, you have additional issues to consider. Compared to the days when organizations managed everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat containment and accountability more difficult. Further, pressure on security teams to protect everything in the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and expensive threat management. If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider a holistic security approach that reclaims control from dispa

Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy. One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware.

While working to maintain tactical control of the mobile environment, IT managers often find themselves drowning in minutiae. Overwhelmed by the number of moving parts, they’re unable to stay abreast of the latest threats, let alone extract meaning from or make decisions based on the mountains of data now being collected. With limited IT resources dedicated to mobile technology tools that facilitate reactive rather than proactive management—and limited visibility into mobile intelligence across the organization—many managers have had to choose between security and productivity as the focus of their efforts.

It’s time to think differently about your network security. Forget the fragmented and reactive approach you’ve used in the past with patchwork point solutions under separate IT silos. According to Frost & Sullivan’s report, you need a holistic approach to network security.

The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up. Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.

When one of our client's most strategic web applications was hacked, it was something of a wake-up call. Application security is surprisingly often an afterthought, and serious investment is only sometimes made when security breaches are discovered. Effectively, companies try to close the stable door after the horse has bolted. However, preventive security maintenance of apps is far more cost-effective and less damaging than reactive security. Our client therefore asked us to put in place an app security testing program early in the development life cycle to reduce the chances of similar breaches in the future.

According to Gartner, E-discovery readiness is an initiative that spans legal, IT and business stakeholder concerns and can also unify and align with archiving and data management strategies. To reduce risk and exposure, an E-discovery plan should be proactive and holistic instead of reactive and time pressured. This newsletter, “Strengthen E-Discovery Readiness to Reduce Cost and Risk” features Gartner research and offers guidance on the considerations for and E-discovery action plan, such as retention schedules, access rights, privacy concerns and security controls.
