"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses. But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio Read 5 Reasons Enterprises Need a New Access Model to learn about the fundamental changes enterprises need to make when providing access to their private applications.

Email. You use it constantly. And it’s the number-one application to keep your organization functioning, lines of communication flowing, and productivity seamless. Organizations need email to stay up-and running all the time. After all, it’s supposed to just work, right? This is where trouble often sets in. Cybercriminals use email constantly, too. It’s the number-one vector used to initiate attacks like malware delivery (think ransomware), impersonations and phishing attacks. In fact, almost 90% of organizations* have seen the volume of phishing attacks either rise or stay the same over the past 12 months. Internal threats have also been on the rise: Most organizations have encountered internal threats driven by careless employees (88%), compromised accounts (80%) or malicious insiders (70%) over the last year.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years. As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

As the threat landscape evolves, so must our security controls and countermeasures. Recent research from F5 Labs revealed that applications are the initial targets in the majority of breaches, suggesting that any app can be an attack vector. Cybercriminals are moving their tactics further up the stack using sophisticated application-layer exploits, as well as an emerging wave of automated, bot, and IoTbased threats that are quite capable of evading simple signature or reputation-based detection. Yet, the majority of WAFs on the market today have remained largely unchanged, leaving the applayer exposed, unable to proactively monitor and protect against evolving attack vectors.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was jointly developed to provide additive testing to the commodity antivirus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST. CylancePROTECT® was tested against five competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro. The tests were performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. Read more in the AV-TEST report.

With cybercriminals threatening nations globally, cybersecurity is taking a front seat in many regions. Most notably, the European Union (EU) has adopted regulations to combat the threats. Against the backdrop of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, the EU has set forth rules and procedures for enhanced cybersecurity, along with penalties for noncompliance, in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new body of mandated policies and procedures aims to protect EU member personal information collected and/or stored by organizations. Read more in the GDPR business brief.

The 21st century marks the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities for mass consumption. A staggering surge of machine learning has been applied for myriad of uses — from self-driving cars to curing cancer. AI and machine learning have only recently entered the world of cybersecurity, but it’s occurring just in time. According to Gartner Research, the total market for all security will surpass $100B in 2019. Companies are looking to spend on innovation to secure against cyberthreats. As a result, more tech startups today tout AI to secure funding; and more established vendors now claim to embed machine learning in their products. Yet, the hype around AI and machine learning — what they are and how they work — has created confusion in the marketplace. How do you make sense of the claims? Can you test for yourself to know the truth? Cylance leads the cybersecurity world of AI. The company spearheaded an innovation revolution by replacing legacy antivirus software with predictive, preventative solutions and services that protect the endpoint — and the organization. Cylance stops zero-day threats and the most sophisticated known and unknown attacks. Read more in this analytical white paper.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats. Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe. The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences. The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher. The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources. Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.

The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
