Security Analytics: A Required Escalation In Cyber Defense

Security Analytics is one of the two fastest growing product categories in security. Unlike sand boxing for advanced malware detection it provides a comprehensive view into all network traffic,not just payloads. Every organization will have to deploy some sort of security analytics.

The largest IT departments in highly targeted environments, like banks and defense contractors, are already doing some sort of security analytics. The enterprise is hiring the talent now to be able to deploy and use security analytics. Smaller organizations will have to use managed service providers because they lack the staff. There will be stand alone tools, cloud tools and capabilities built into network security platforms. Scale, speed and ability to apply security intelligence will be the determining factor in the success of these tools. Security analytics is an emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors.

Assuring Application Security: Deploying Code that Keeps Data Safe

“There’s an app for that” has become the mantra of users, developers, and IT alike. The explosion of applications – whether homegrown, developed with outside teams, commercial off-the-shelf, or open source – is clear. But all that code can bring new risks. Unprotected web applications can lead to data leakage, compromised systems, and full-blown breaches. As such, developers, DevOps, and IT must ensure that the applications they create and run do not put the enterprise at risk. Download this Slashguide to learn the value of better testing & security of new apps during deployment & beyond.

Security considerations when undergoing a network refresh

Corporate networks are under a constant state of siege - not just from threats but from the pressure of supporting the ever-growing number of clients, devices and platforms that have resulted from the BYOD phenomena. Network demands will only increase as we move to the "internet of things" adding sensors and instrumentation of all types to the list of security burdens. As a result, many organizations are planning network refreshes to ensure bandwidth for current and future needs will be available. But new networking protocols and hardware can bring new attack surfaces for both internal and external threats, and organizations must consider new security measures, from intrusion prevention systems to next-generation firewalls to ensure network upgrades don't leave them at higher risk.

This SlashGuide looks at the most important factors IT should keep top of mind as they plan their move to 802.11ac, higher bandwidth wired infrastructure or upgrading to switches and routers with enhanced capabilities.
