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

Integrated on-premises solutions offer tight control and flexibility, but can be quickly overwhelmed by a large volumetric attack. Managed cloudbased services deliver protection from those largeattacks, but can be expensive if used for all traffic, all the time. By using a combination of on-premises security devices and a cloud-based scrubbing service to handle volumetric attacks, organizations maintain control, while spinning up cloud-protection services as needed to handle the largest volumetric floods.

Any digital device or application can be a vector for a cyberattack, but email is an especially acute problem for many organizations. As individuals or members of organizations, most people rely on email to communicate with colleagues, whether in the next cubicle or across the globe. For many in the business world, 24/7 access to email is routine, and often required. Instant, ubiquitous and inexpensive communication gives us quick access to others in our business and personal lives, but gives criminals easy and direct access to us as well.

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.

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.

DDoS attackers launch hundreds of DDoS attacks every day. When a DDoS attack strikes an organization, panic is common. No one knows why systems and applications are failing, who to call, or what questions to ask. Meanwhile, senior leaders want answers. Planning ahead and being prepared is your best defense against DDoS attacks. This white paper explores best practices for building and maintaining a DDoS protection plan. You’ll learn what to expect from a DDoS attack, how to prepare, what to put in a DDoS runbook, and how to test your plan.

"Nothing kills attacks earlier than DNS-layer security. Protection both before and during the attack Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

"Whaling attacks have risen in recent months and these emails are more difficult to detect because they don’t contain a malicious hyperlink or attachment, and rely solely on social-engineering to trick their targets. In order to combat these attacks, organizations must be aware of the dangers presented by whaling, or CEO fraud, and put the right safeguards in place. Mimecast conducted a whaling attack survey with 500 organizations around the globe and the results were alarming.

You’ve probably heard about distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, or maybe you’ve even been hit by one. If you’re like most organizations, you’ve already been DDoSed. Perhaps the attack was minor, a wakeup call, but then the attack subsided without causing damage and you just left DDoS protection on your “to-do list.” If you don’t have a DDoS attack plan, it’s probably time to bump it up to the top of your list. That’s because DDoS attacks are getting bigger, persistent, and more harmful. They inflict serious cost in terms of lost revenue, damaged systems and lost consumer trust. DDoS is no longer just a web server problem; infrastructure is now a target. The attacker’s ambition is clear: Take down your online existence and harm your organization.
