Well-funded hackers with sophisticated tools made headlines and worried organizational leadership throughout 2014 yet the primary reason endpoint security risk has become more difficult in the past 24 months is due to negligent or careless employees who do not follow security policies says IT in the 2015 State of the Endpoint study by Ponemon Institute and commissioned by Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security. Learn more about the risks.

The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

Microsoft withdraws support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. Here’s how you need to respond to protect your organization’s information assets. Just after enterprises have finished migrating their desktops from Microsoft Windows XP, they now have to turn around and move away from Windows Server 2003. The venerable (and now vulnerable) operating system reaches end of support on July 14, 2015. But many companies will continue to use the software after that deadline, and that has serious security implications.

"Just over a decade ago, the outcry over Microsoft’s security problems reached such a deafening level that it finally got the attention of Bill Gates, who wrote the famous Trustworthy Computing memo. Today, many would say that Microsoft leads the industry in security and vulnerability handling. Now, it’s Java that’s causing the uproar. But has Oracle learned anything from Microsoft in handling these seemingly ceaseless problems? In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith from Ultimate Windows Security will start by reviewing the wide-ranging Java security changes Oracle is promising to make. They sound so much like the improvements Microsoft made back with Trustworthy Computing that I’m amazed it hasn’t been done before! We’ll move on to discuss what you can do now to address Java security in your environment. One of the banes of security with Java is the presence of multiple versions of Java, often on the same computer. Sometimes you really need multiple versions of Java to support appli

"Watch this on-demand webcast, as security expert Randy Franklin Smith from Ultimate Windows Security, shows you a technical and pragmatic approach to mobile security for iOS and Android. For instance, for iOS-based devices, he talks about: System security Encryption and data protection App Security Device controls Randy also discusses Android-based devices. While Android gets its kernel from Linux, it builds on Linux security in a very specialized way to isolate applications from each other. And learn about iOS and Android mobile device management needs: Password and remote wipe capabilities are obvious but there’s much more to the story. And you’ll hear Randy's list of top-10 things you need to secure and manage on mobile devices in order to protect access to your organization’s network and information. "

Server systems are, by definition, more important than individual endpoints. They must provide services to hundred, or even thousands, of endpoints and, naturally, must be secure. Traditional anti-virus (AV) solutions can provide protection for servers. However, constantly running AV processes, along with potentially frequent signature updates, can consume resources that could otherwise be used to provide application services to users. Read this evaluation by Tolly, commissioned by Lumension, as the dive into the impact on server resources of the alternative application control solution compared with traditional AV solutions from Microsoft Corp, Symantec Corp, and Trend Micro, Inc.

A recent QuinStreet web seminar, sponsored by Lumension, discussed APT attacks and tactics for preventing them. This paper summarizes the talks given during that web seminar.
