Gartner Research: Use SIEM for Targeted Attack Detection

Closing the gap for the potential of a targeted attack and becoming a breach statistic is an ongoing challenge for organizations of all types and sizes. The adoption of continuous security information and event monitoring (SIEM) offers organizations a more holistic, intelligent and comprehensive approach to reduce the window of discovery.

Gartner’s paper­ - Use SIEM for Targeted Attack Detection ­ - details research on how IT security leaders can improve targeted attack detection capabilities using SIEM tools and appropriate investments in expertise, processes and complementary technologies.

A New Class of Firewall: Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW)

The latest advanced threats take advantage of the flat and open internal network. Once they get past traditional firewall defenses at the perimeter, it’s very easy for them to spread and extract valuable trade secrets and sensitive data.

Download the “Protecting Your Network from the Inside Out” white paper, which details the emergence of a new class of firewall that helps address this critical security gap—the Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW). Deployed at key strategic points in the network, it identifies and contains threats before they spread.

ISFWs can be deployed rapidly with minimum disruption while keeping up with the multi­-gigabit speeds of internal networks. They offer instant visibility and critical protection that can protect internal data/assets if a threat gets past the perimeter.

One Brand of Firewall is a Best Practice for Most Enterprises

The combination of cloud technologies and ever-­increasing worker mobility have required firewalls to expand their reach from securing applications and network traffic to address the entire broad and complex threat surface.

Gartner’s paper­ One Brand of Firewall is a Best Practice for Most Enterprises­ details research that enables you to learn more about the importance of a unified security posture:

  • Reducing complexity through consolidated management
  • Increasing security effectiveness with deeper levels of inspection
  • Automating threat remediation and accelerating response times

    Il framework Fortinet per la protezione da minacce avanzate (“Advanced Threat Protection”, ATP)

    Nel 2013 e nel 2014 sono stati molti i marchi e le imprese di fama mondiale a far notizia, e non per la ripresa economica post-recessione, né per la realizzazione di prodotti innovativi, bensì per le gravissime violazioni dei dati subite. Una sola di queste audaci e capillari imprese criminose è riuscita a derubare più di 100 milioni di clienti di informazioni personali e/o dati delle carte di credito.

    ¿Por qué necesita la tecnología de SandBoxing para su protección?

    Las organizaciones en las que las amenazas persistentes avanzadas (APT) irrumpen son noticia continuamente y la tecnología de SandBoxing es de lo que más se habla para protegerle de las APT. ¿Por qué? ¿Por qué la tecnología de SandBoxing? ¿Qué le ofrece una solución de SandBoxing que no obtiene aún de sus capas existentes de seguridad?

    Apostando por la tecnología de SandBoxing

    En los equipos, el término «SandBoxing» se ha utilizado desde hace mucho tiempo para representar un entorno aislado y seguro en el que ejecutar código malintencionado de forma que los investigadores lo puedan analizar. Los appliances de seguridad de red aplican actualmente el mismo concepto para ejecutar e inspeccionar el tráfico de red, descubriendo el código malintencionado que anteriormente escapaba a las medidas de seguridad tradicionales.

    El marco de protección avanzada contra amenazas de Fortinet

    Durante los años 2013 y 2014 se escribieron muchos titulares sobre grandes compañías y marcas principales, pero no por su asombrosa recuperación económica tras la recesión o por sus productos innovadores, sino por las fugas masivas de sus datos. A más de 100 millones de clientes les han robado información personal y/o de su tarjeta de crédito mediante uno de estos ataques extensos y audaces.

    Mantenimiento de la continuidad del negocio mediante la lucha contra los ataques avanzados actuales

    El concepto de ataques avanzados de hoy en día, también conocidos como amenazas persistentes avanzadas (APT), se ha integrado en el vocabulario cotidiano de la comunidad de TI y forma parte de su mentalidad. Debido a los numerosos casos de fugas de datos, el concepto de APT ha adquirido un cierto sentido mítico; no obstante, es un término que suele malinterpretarse. Sin embargo, lo más importante es que se suele creer que todas las fugas de datos se deben a APT, incluso cuando los servicios de análisis forenses posteriores a los eventos han demostrado que la filtración de red inicial se debía a un error humano o a un defecto en el diseño de la red.

    Perché utilizzare sandbox per la protezione

    I media sono pieni di notizie di organizzazioni violate con minacce avanzate persistenti (APT) e le sandbox vengono pubblicizzate come gli strumenti più hot del momento in fatto di protezione dalle APT. Perché? Perché è utile il sandboxing? Cosa ti offre una soluzione sandbox che non puoi avere dai livelli di sicurezza esistenti?

    Un tuffo nella sandbox

    In informatica, il termine sandbox è stato a lungo utilizzato per indicare un ambiente isolato sicuro in cui eseguire codice dannoso a scopo di analisi. Lo stesso concetto si applica ora alle appliance di sicurezza di rete, per eseguire ed esaminare il traffico di rete identificando codice dannoso che sarebbe prima sfuggito alle tradizionali misure di sicurezza.

    Mantenere la Business Continuity contrastando gli attuali attacchi avanzati

    Il concetto degli odierni attacchi avanzati, noti anche come minacce persistenti avanzate (Advanced Persistent Threats, APT), è entrato a far parte del vocabolario e della mentalità della comunità IT. Sull'onda del susseguirsi di notizie su violazioni di dati, le APT hanno acquisito un significato “leggendario”, ma sono largamente fraintese. Soprattutto è passata l'idea che ogni violazione dei dati fosse un'APT, anche nei casi in cui le indagini a posteriori hanno dimostrato che l'infiltrazione iniziale della rete era stata causata da un errore umano o da difetti di progettazione.
