This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.

Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.

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.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Advanced evasion techniques, or AETs, are delivery mechanisms used to disguise advanced persistent threats (APTs) and permit them to slip through network security undetected. AETs work by splitting up malicious payloads into smaller pieces, disguising them, and delivering them simultaneously across multiple and rarely used protocols. Once inside, AETs reassemble to unleash malware and continue an APT attack.

Many papers on the topic of advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with ominous references to the changing threat landscape and stories of how highly sophisticated cyber attacks are becoming more prevalent. That can be misleading. The majority of attacks today still use many techniques that have been around for years—social engineering, phishing emails, backdoor exploits and drive-by downloads, to name the biggest ones. Such attacks are neither advanced nor particularly sophisticated when broken down into their individual components and often rely on the weakest link in any organization—the user. However, the way in which hackers use combinations of techniques and the persistent behavior of the attackers is something that does set APTs apart from other attempts to compromise security. This paper is designed to give you an overview of the common characteristics of APTs, how they typically work, and what kind of protection is available to help reduce the risk of an attack.

Enterprise’s are increasingly under threat from sophisticated attacks. In fact, research has found that threats dwell in a customer’s environment an average of 190 days1. These Advanced Persistent Threats use stealthy techniques to evade detection and bypass traditional security defenses. Once an advanced attack gains access to a customer environment the attacker has many tools to evade detection and begin to exploit valuable resources and data. Security teams face multiple challenges when attempting to detect and fully expose the extent of an advanced attack including manual searches through large and disparate data sources, lack of visibility into critical control points, alert fatigue from false positives, and difficulty identifying and fixing impacted endpoints.

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done. This paper outlines: The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks; What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats; A reimagined approach to IT security.

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone. These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates. This white paper highlights: Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks; Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors; How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust. This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including: Value of your data; Low risk and high returns for criminals; Why SMBs are easier targets.

Whether they work for an up-and-coming startup or an industry giant, security response teams are under siege as never before. Today's cyber attacks are sophisticated, relentless, and devastating, costing U.S. businesses $8.9 million a year each on average. Attacking in multiple stages across multiple vectors, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated attacks easily evade signature-based detection and other traditional defenses. Thiswhite paper describes: The 10 most common mistakes, strategic and technical, that incident response teams make; The effect of these mistakes and how to avoid them with a well-defined incident response plan.

If information is the lifeblood of today's digital economy, data centers are the heart. These mini-metropolises of silicon, metal, and cable are as essential to modern business as steel, motors, and coal were to the last great industrial revolution. In addition to their vital role in most business processes, data centers are the building blocks of emerging trends such as Big Data, global collaboration, and even bring-your-own-device (BYOD). The white paper describes: The widening gap between the offensive capabilities of today's cyber attackers and the weak traditional defenses deployed in most data centers; How organizations can better protect data centers.
