As organizations increasingly rely on cloud services and SaaS applications to streamline business practices, the familiar paradigm of the network perimeter has dissolved, leaving a porous and ever-changing digital estate in its wake. While the benefits of cloud computing will ensure that migrations continue apace, the unique security challenges presented by the cloud will not only require a more agile mindset, but also self-learning technologies that can move at the speed of cloud deployments and spot subtle deviations indicative of a threat, while providing complete, real-time visibility across the digital business. Darktrace’s world leadership in the field of artificial intelligence for cyber security makes it the most effective and proven solution to detect unprecedented threats and anomalous cyber-incidents in the cloud. Whether faced with an insider threat, an attacker targeting sensitive data in test containers, or a significant misconfiguration that could be exploited in the fut

Competitive pressures from peers are forcing CSPs to evolve beyond connectivity and offer incremental valueadded services to sustain revenue growth. Security services are an obvious candidate for consideration since awareness of the need for security protections is extremely high due to regular media coverage highlighting Internet exploits. Threat trends and strong alignment with large customer segments are creating opportunity for CSPs to offer a foundational layer of web protection for every Internet access connection. They can provide a previously unavailable level of web security that reduces the risk their customers face, without imposing a configuration or management burden.

NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco AMP for Endpoints v6.0.5. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test Methodology v2.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s inclusion. This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative information is available at www.nsslabs.com. As part of the initial AEP test setup, products were configured in a deployment mode typical to enterprises. As such, products were configured to mimic an enterprise environment by applying typical applications such as exclusion policies and tuning requirements. All product-based configurations are reviewed, validated, and approved by NSS prior to the test. Every effort is made to ensure optimal security effectiveness, as would be the aim of a typi

A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies. This eBook provides a simple guide to explain both penetration testing's purpose and a basic guide to getting you there. Download now and start testing your network today.

This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.

The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity. That means enabling users to get to work quickly and easily in any scenario without having to deal with different ways of accessing each app. Traditional VPNs and point solutions add complexity for both users and IT, increase costs and fail to enable a holistic approach to business mobility. Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a
