Practical Tips to Find and Fix Common App Performance Problems

Performance issues today are compounded by increasingly complex infrastructures that IT teams must contend with when delivering applications. As a result detecting and fixing performance problems is hard. Sluggish end-user transactions may present themselves as being slow due to the code. However, that slowness is often not the root cause, but rather a symptom of an underlying infrastructural issue hidden from view.

Examine common, yet elusive application performance problems that reveal themselves only when you look at them from the right vantage point.

2016 Cyber Intrusion Casebook5) CrowdStrike Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook 2016

This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs.

Download this report to learn:

  • How CrowdStrike’s Falcon OverWatch and professional services teams discovered and attributed the DNC intrusion to nation-state threat actors FANCY BEAR and COZY BEAR
  • The gaps in security processes and planning that your organization can address now to stop the next breach
  • The specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) a range of nation-state and eCrime adversaries used to penetrate their victims’ defenses, and how they attempted to cover their tracks.

CrowdStrike Threat Graph™: Stopping Breaches with Graph Data Models and Analytics

One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.

Download the white paper to learn:

  • How to detect known and unknown threats by applying high-volume graph-based technology, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google
  • How CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own proprietary graph data model
  • How CrowdStrike Threat Graph™ collects and analyzes massive volumes of security-related data to stop breaches

A Deep Dive into Ransomware’s Evolution

Once a “consumer-only” problem, Ransomware now has an established business case for profitability, and that’s driving criminals to expand their operations and hunt for more lucrative prey. As a result, commercial enterprises and other large organizations are increasingly in the cross-hairs.

Consider these facts:

  • Ransomware attacks doubled in 2015
  • The number of new ransomware variants increased 17% in Q1 2016
  • The FBI estimates that ransomware will net criminals $1 billion in 2016

This white paper dives into the inner workings of ransomware, its perpetrators and how they are evolving to maximize profits. You’ll also learn how companies are fighting back, and review best practices for protecting your organization from becoming another victim of electronic extortion.

Scaling Data Science for the Industrial Internet – Advanced Analytics in Real Time

One estimate holds that, by 2020, businesses involved with the Internet of Things will spend roughly 26% of their entire IoT cost on technologies and services that store, integrate, visualize, and analyze data from various IoT devices—or nearly twice what IoT companies spend today. Conventional techniques for extracting and evaluating IoT data need to get a lot smarter if companies are to keep pace with the phenomena they’re tracking. In this ebook, author Andy Oram discusses the state of IoT analytics by examining ThingWorx and its partners Glassbeam and National Instruments—companies that provide development tools and capabilities for building and running IoT applications. By learning how to use modern techniques to automate and speed up analytics on IoT projects, you can gain an edge in security, customer satisfaction, and operational efficiencies.

  • Understand the demands of IoT analytics by exploring examples of farm, factory, vehicle maintenance, and healthcare automation
  • Explore the characteristics of predictive analytics, a realm where you don’t know in advance which factors are relevant
  • Examine the tools for IoT analytics used by companies at various levels of data analytics
  • Get revealing case studies of IoT analytics from ThingWorx, Glassbeam, and National Instruments

Protecting Smart Devices and Applications Throughout the IoT Ecosystem

IoT security presents unique challenges to every party involved in the process – from device manufacturers and product development managers to application developers and end users. The top challenges to effective IoT security are directly related to the benefits of the IoT itself: the lack of human intervention needed for thousands of smart, connected devices to operate and the variety of devices that can be connected. This new whitepaper by Rob Black, CISSP, Senior Director of Product Management at PTC, addresses IoT security best practices at the device and application level, such as:

  • Data and network traffic encryption
  • Audit trails
  • Granular permissions and visibility
  • Secure software development life cycle (SDLC)
