When you’re presented with IT security metrics, your question is: What does this mean for my business? And ultimately, what data should I be most concerned with? The point is, not all data deserves equal protection. A more effective approach is to understand: • Which data is most critical (also known as “crown jewels”)? • Where does that data reside? • How is it exposed to security risks? • What potential impact would a security breach to this data have on your organization? • What are the appropriate steps to take based on the data’s criticality?

As more employees desire to use their personal smartphones for work, IT managers must leverage the opportunity, or risk their organizations missing out on an emerging business trend. It's no longer feasible for an IT department, regardless of company size, to ignore the smartphone push from the majority of the employee population. IT management must attempt to channel the chaos and determine ways to embrace the personal mobility wave while maintaining effective security and management measures, especially in relation to the corporate network. This free whitepaper discusses innovative mobile strategies, new policies, and a fresh approach to allowing smartphones access to corporate resources.

Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

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.

Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success. This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit. Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment. This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.

Small server rooms and branch offices are typically unorganized, unsecure, hot, unmonitored, and space constrained. These conditions can lead to system downtime or, at the very least, lead to “close calls” that get management’s attention. Practical experience with these problems reveals a short list of effective methods to improve the availability of IT operations within small server rooms and branch offices. This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.

An effective storage management solution must consider the role of SAN security in ensuring network and data integrity. When Direct Attached Storage (DAS) was the majority of storage, security was not an issue. By preventing access to the server you could stop access to the server-owned storage resources of disk and tape. Holes in SAN security practices can threaten data integrity and system availability.

Security professionals are constantly being asked to justify every security project. Security risks can often be difficult to measure and even more difficult to understand by people outside the department. The key to demonstrating improvement is to translate security information into business terms.
