The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well. S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each. In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.

It is generally accepted that a hybrid approach to IT operations gives enterprises both financial and operational flexibility— allowing them to apply new technologies with little or no capital investment and tap expertise without hiring new personnel. But it is still an imperfect solution, and with sophisticated new attacks propagating at an accelerated rate, security has become a top concern. This is evidenced by the growing number of C-level security executives and by the intensive efforts of IT organizations to identify and address the gaps in their enterprise defenses and improve their ability to respond to those attacks. It is clear that security for hybrid IT environments is due for an advanced upgrade.

Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.

There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people? The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.

This report examines enterprise security threats for iOS and Android. While Android has higher consumer market share, iOS commands more market share in the enterprise, accounting for 72% of enterprise mobile activations in Q1 2015 compared to Android’s 26% activation share1 . The perception that iOS is more secure has helped drive its enterprise adoption, but this perception comes largely from security trends observed in the consumer space. Android, with a more open mobile platform and 81% global market share2 , predictably invites more broad-based attacks than iOS. When it comes to iOS and Android in the enterprise, however, both need threat protection because at a fundamental level both platforms are subject to similar vulnerabilities and attack methods. iOS attacks may be relatively uncommon today, but they have happened and can occur. Moreover, enterprises increasingly rely on iOS app-distribution methods that forgo Apple’s app-review and they face the risk that attackers will cont

Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.

Whether you were at the forefront of the mobility era or are just now catching up—or, most likely, somewhere in between—you’ve already experienced first-hand the business impact of ubiquitous smartphones and tablets. From employees to customers, mobile devices spawned an explosion in new applications, data, support needs, security concerns, and other issues. They’ve reset expectations for organizational speed and flexibility. They’ve dramatically increased the surface area for potential security attacks. All this, and the mobile era is still just in its infancy.

Whether you're focused on public-facing websites or your company's assets and users, as someone who cares about digital security, your life is dominated by these trends that characterize the state of all things security in 2019: Attacks are growing, evolving, and becoming more sophisticated. And the types of attacks we see are proliferating. How do you protect your crown jewels when the castle has no walls? The answer is at the edge. When you deploy security at the edge, you are protecting your changing assets closer to the attack itself and moving digital experiences closer to users. In essence, you're deploying a single pane of glass, an extension of your infrastructure, that sits between you - your users, your digital experiences - and the always-changing nature of today's digital environment.

The realities of security and compliance have changed considerably since patch management faced its first big paradigm shift some years ago. At that time many organizations wrestled with the transition from manual patching and remediation to an automated process. Of course, nothing in security is ever static, so it is no surprise that patch management has continued to evolve since then. Though still automated, today’s best patch management tools and techniques are significantly different from their predecessors. In this whitepaper, Lumension Security’s Matt Mosher, Senior Vice President of the Americas, gives an historical perspective on how this evolution unfolded and why it is important for organizations to evolve their patch management technology in order to remain on top of increasing security attacks.

Identity and access management exists for one critical reason—security. Organizations need to make certain the right people have access to the right resources to do their jobs—and that people without proper authorization can’t get in. In an era the IBM X-Force security team recently described as experiencing “an ever-upward trend of more attacks, more leaked records and more varied threats,” security is a critical function for business as well as IT.

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.

This whitepaper examines the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) movement, from carrying around a floppy disk to today's "cloud" services. This paper explains that employees may not be aware that their file transfer methods can cause a risk to security. Ways to ensure that employees can securely send files without risking corporate data security and what that dangers are with BYOD transfers are also discussed. Recent security breaches are referenced in the paper, and why such attacks are expected to continue into the future. The paper concludes with a description of how companies can ensure data security and how Globalscape's secure file transfer products meet and exceed that need.

The financial services industry is one of the largest and most sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are quite often the key focal point for criminals. Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people, processes, applications, or systems. Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe. Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial services organizations the edge they need.
