"Every kind of online interaction—website visits, API calls to mobile apps, and others—is being attacked by bots. Whether it's fraud, scraping, spam, DDoS, espionage, shilling, or simply altering your SEO ranking, bots are wreaking havoc on websites as well as mobile and business applications. But that’s not all: they’re also messing with your business intelligence (BI). They can skew audience metrics, customer journeys and even ad buys, making business decisions questionable and costly. According to Forrester, ad fraud alone was set to exceed $3.3 billion in 2018. Not all bots are bad. In fact, your business depends on them. Search engine bots, for example, give your web presence visibility and authority online. Other good bots help you deliver better customer experiences—perhaps a chatbot provides instant customer assistance on your site. What’s important is enabling the good bots and blocking the bad ones."

"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams. As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats. The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."

Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere. Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.

Cart abandonment, digital advertising (especially when faced with ad-blocking software), and discrete digital stores are relics of the past when it comes to e-commerce. Consider this: How much revenue do you think $1 spent on digital advertising will generate in commerce sales? The answer: A bit more than twice the investment—an abysmally unprofitable equation for any company carrying physical inventory.

For decades, fear has dominated the discussion of cyber security. Every magazine article, presentation or blog about the topic seems to start the same way: trying to scare the living daylights out of you with horror stories, alarming statistics, and doomsday scenarios. The result is that most IT shops and security vendors think security is only about what you prevent. They think it’s about blocking, prohibiting, controlling, constraining, excluding, outlawing, and forbidding. Hence IT’s reputation as the “Department of No.”

There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people? The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.

The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defences with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.

Are automakers re-inventing the wheel with every new navigation program without creating user value? Users movement towards free mobile apps that mirror to in-dash screens may be the symptom of a negative cost-benefit perception. But the automotive industry has an opportunity to change these market dynamics. By delivering compelling experiences that leverage their core advantages, OEMs can create touchpoints for recurring revenue streams from the IVI. This white paper from ABI Research discusses the state of the connected navigation market, the challenges OEMs face, the industry paradigms blocking OEMs from creating customer value, and the advantages OEMs could leverage.

Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security. You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More effective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, firewalls, and sandboxing alone. Umbrella is a proven service provider whose security services are completely nondisruptive. Download this whitepaper to find out more.

URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.

Fifty-two percent of security leaders rate their organizations at above average or superior when it comes to detecting or blocking ransomware before it locks or encrypts data in their systems. Yet, 36 percent also say their organizations were victims of ransomware in the past year. And 57 percent say they are more likely to be a ransomware target in 2017.

2018 NSS Labs SD-WAN Group Test In this report, NSS Labs simulated an enterprise network that has branches connected to a data center through two links: an MPLS line and a commercial broadband connection. They reviewed a select number of vendors, testing their throughput performance, video quality and VoIP quality as well as security effectiveness. NSS Labs verified that Forcepoint NGFW handled all of their use cases and offers all the operational capabilities that they recommend as necessary for SD-WAN as well as scoring 100% across all security tests, blocking all evasion techniques. “Forcepoint is one of the few vendors to support all of the use cases and capabilities we tested as well as strong security in their SD-WAN solution. They should be on the short list for any organization that’s looking to connect and protect their distributed enterprise.” - Vikram Phatak, CEO, NSS Labs Read the report and learn how Forcepoint delivers SD-WAN with enterprise scale and security to ma

Security spending is expected to reach $120 billion by 2021, yet the amount of data loss events seems to be increasing. Legacy DLP solutions, which rely on traditional threat blocking policies, have been unable to evolve to address these threats. Organizations need to fundamentally rethink how they address cybersecurity for today’s modern threats. Watch this webcast to understand how taking a Risk-Adaptive approach enables security to fluctuate based on the threat environment. See how Dynamic Data Protection, an industry-first solution, uses human-centric behavior analytics to continuously determine the risk cyber identities pose, based on their actions.
