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.

    Smarter Cybersecurity Solutions

    Perhaps more than any other type of software solution a reseller can offer to its customers, endpoint security products are characterized by a huge gap between their minimal purchase prices and the enormous costs they can entail for clients if they fail to work properly. The financial benefits of retailing antivirus solutions are modest (typical street prices are $24/year per seat, with VAR cost roughly $12), while the potential losses suffered by a VAR’s customer due to virus or malware infections can be devastating.

    Such costs can range from system downtime and diminished productivity to lost sales revenues and even potential legal liability for claims relating to any private information that may have been compromised. Combating the alarming volume, velocity and variance of today’s security threats has become significantly more challenging as cybercriminals employ an extensive range of sophisticated new techniques (polymorphism, spear phishing, etc).

    Yet, despite this rapidly-evolving threat landscape—and the substantial financial hardships it can impose on resellers’ customers—many VARs still underestimate the importance of offering the optimum antivirus solution. By focusing on the modest acquisition expenses of antivirus products, VARs may tend to overlook the significant business consequences and huge costs for its customers that choosing the wrong endpoint security solution can entail.
