In the PC era, employees operated from within a well defined enterprise IT perimeter and passwords were sufficient to establish user trust. However, in today’s mobile-cloud environment, the enterprise perimeter has dissolved and business information is available to users on a variety of endpoints, apps, services, networks, locations. In this dynamic access environment, organizations need a different approach to security that is able to: • Establish user trust using multiple factor authentication • Correlate user trust with other factors such as endpoint, app, network, and more • Apply adaptive, risk-based policies that match the user’s environment

The DevOps model drives digital transformation and the rapid delivery of new software products and services. However, this process largely takes place outside the purview of information security (InfoSec), often without their involvement. As a result, security teams struggle to keep pace. This whitepaper explores the intersection of DevOps and InfoSec, offering three reasons why security organizations will benefit by combining these two practices.

The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

Matthew Coy, Safelite’s Vice President of Information Technology, is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s IT infrastructure, including selecting, administering, and supporting technology products. The company handles personally identifiable information, including credit card information and insurance data collected from several sources, and must comply with insurance industry regulations and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Safelite is the target of constant external attacks. The organization experienced ongoing security issues stemming from infected software, drivebys and other malicious downloads. According to Matthew, “A lot of malware and email viruses were making it through the environment, all bypassing our email security and AV.” Not only were the security controls ineffective, the previous AV platform required nearly 150 hours per week to manage. Matthew knew Safelite needed to make a change, and fast. Having worked with Cylance® at two previous companies, he was confident CylancePROTECT® could significantly improve Safelite’s endpoint security.

Phoenix Children’s CISO, Daniel Shuler, and its IT security team are responsible for protecting 5,000 endpoints in the hospital and across more than 20 clinics in the region. Endpoints include physician and staff laptops and desktops, nursing stations, servers, Windows-based clinical devices, credit card payment processors, and point-of-sale terminals. These endpoints are used to store and/or process personal health information (PHI), and payment and credit card information. They must comply with HIPAA for PHI and voluntarily comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for credit card data. The IT security team’s existing industry-leading AV solution claimed to provide visibility into malicious activity aimed at the endpoints. It continuously reported all endpoints were safe, sound, and secure. This caused Daniel to be suspicious. He knew from experience that such low levels of endpoint malicious activity was highly unlikely. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still don’t understand the basics of this im

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud. This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.

Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well. Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre
