Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone. A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.

While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.

Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.

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

Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular, are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to “go on the hunt.” Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t

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.

Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology yet major breaches and compromises are more prevalent than ever. The concept of “layered security” in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers doesn’t seem to be working. It’s time to rethink IT security not just the technology, but the way it’s approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.

Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.

Learn how cyber threat intelligence (CTI) helps you bolster defenses, hunt down adversaries,investigate incidents and make better security decisions. While once considered a “nice to have”, Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) is now widely considered an essential weapon against breaches. A recent study by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 72 percent of organizations plan to increase CTI spending — further validation of its important role in your security strategy. Yet, because threat intelligence comes in many shapes and forms, it is often misunderstood. This white paper, “Threat Intelligence, Cybersecurity’s Best Kept Secret,” offers in-depth coverage of CTI, including the different categories of threat intelligence and use cases that demonstrate CTI’s effectiveness in thwarting today’s most dangerous and sophisticated attackers. You’ll also learn how the right CTI can empower better security and executive decisions, while dramatically improving your organization's security pos

By 2021, cyber attacks are expected to cause $6 trillion in damages worldwide. To combat, spending is predicted to hit $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. Attackers benefit from an infinite amount of time and tactics at their disposal, as they work to get around the typical static network and endpoint defenses organizations put in place. Deception can complement endpoint and network defenses, adding dynamic security mechanisms that can be customized for every environment to take the attacker’s advantage away. While endpoint and network security protects you from being compromised, deception mitigates the effects of a compromise by detecting it early and identifying the attacker intent which helps coordinate a faster and better response. Read this white paper to find out more.
