While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Security breaches are all over the news, many of them a result of either insider threats or advanced persistent threats. Companies and government agencies are looking for solutions to mitigate the risks these threats present. This white paper details three common Windows Server threat scenarios and explains the way that they can be neutralized. By following the guidelines in this white paper, organizations can guard against inside and outside threats, protect their Windows Server infrastructure and sensitive data, and meet relevant regulatory requirements. Centrify Server Suite provides organizations with the control they need to thwart these threats. It protects their Windows Server environments by: • Granting users just enough privilege to accomplish their business objectives, enabling secure management of Windows services. • Making shared accounts in Active Directory accountable by associating the use of a shared account with the actual user. • Protecting PCI data from domain admin

Malware has changed considerably since the early PC viruses appeared more than 25 years ago. Today, it evolves so quickly that many customers find staying ahead of the latest threat nearly impossible. If the explosion in malware variants weren’t enough, sophisticated client-side attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs) target victims in ways that evade traditional security measures. The question isn’t whether your network will be attacked with advanced malware. The question is when it will happen and how you will respond. Advanced malware is changing the way security is managed.

Zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats have outstripped the capabilities of traditional security methods that rely exclusively on detection and blocking. At the same time, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is accelerating. Opportunities are opening up for businesses and attackers alike as more things come online, along with the people, processes, and data that interact with them.

Zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats have outstripped the capabilities of traditional security methods that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection. In fact, 100 percent of companies surveyed by Cisco, as part of our Annual Security Report, have connections to domains that are known to host malicious files or services. At the same time, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is accelerating, creating significant opportunities for businesses and attackers alike as more things come online - along with the people, processes, and data that interact with them.

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.

The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.

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.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) have been central to network security discussions in the past few years, with many organizations implementing new solutions to protect themselves from this determined type of malware. Yet, cybercriminals continue to be effective in penetrating the network defenses of even the strongest security systems, including some very high-profile enterprises. One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs). While AETs are not a secret among the hacking community—where they are well known and have been in widespread use for several years—there are misunderstandings, misinterpretation, and ineffective safeguards in use by the security experts charged with blocking AETs.

Security threats continue to be more sophisticated and advanced with each day, with the majority often going completely undetected. • Organizations are usually scrambling to keep up and implement new security controls to protect themselves, which adds a new layer of complexity. • With the rise of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and insider attacks, it becomes extremely difficult for security staff to detect all the risks. • Many IT and IT Security staff are already stretched thin by keeping track of many different security technologies that already exist.
