The core of the Internet is getting weaker as we connect ever more of our lives – phones, tablets, cars, refrigerators – to it. Meanwhile, the attacks are getting stronger. Cybercrime is a global pandemic. Cybersecurity is mainstream today because we’ve seen the repercussions personally, professionally and financially from not keeping our corporate and customer […]
Convergence of multiple technologies from the industrial and information technology worlds has resulted in what is commonly known as the Internet of Things or IoT. IoT combines concepts from embedded systems, networking, sensors, control systems, data analytics and artificial intelligence. IoT technology is being used not only in industrial applications but also in everyday consumer/household […]
Organizations in every industry are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives to remain competitive and relevant. But while they’re expanding their capabilities, increasingly complex IT infrastructures can open new doors for DDoS attacks to get past traditional protection. That’s why it’s time to rethink DDoS protection. Responsible for managing trillions in assets worldwide, a major Wall […]
DDoS attacks have been growing in size over the last few years. Do you know just how large the biggesever recorded were? We’ve created an infographic that showcases the Top 10 DDoS attacks in history, and illustrates just why it might be time for a new approach to DDoS mitigation. DDoS attacks are becoming much […]
In the world of cybersecurity, every day presents a unique set of challenges as threat actors are continuously evolving their tradecraft. For those that have chosen cybersecurity as a profession, the endless game of cat-and-mouse is just the type of challenge they hoped it would be. But for most small and midsize businesses (SMBs), cybersecurity […]
Every business relies on IT networks to function – which makes every business a target for today’s advanced DDoS attacks. It’s now incredibly easy for anyone – from criminal organizations to bored teenagers – to acquire advanced DDoS packages and launch powerful attacks that disrupt business operations and compromise sensitive data. Sophisticated, powerful, and easy […]
Just as SSL encryption protects certain details of a transaction, it can also conceal and protect malicious cyberthreats. This article describes the current state of SSL traffic inspection and how organizations can gain full visibility into what is happening in their networks and mission-critical applications.
SSL technology significantly impacts the way IT departments now monitor their networks. Data that could once be captured and sent to security and monitoring tools for analysis is now completely unreadable by those same tools. Learn how a NPB that has integrated SSL decryption capabilities can be used to overcome this issue.
Encryption is one of the basic enabling technologies of the Internet. We rely on it to do business with partners, shop online, send email, and access applications while maintaining our privacy, identities, and security. Learn more about getting efficient security through complete network visibility by reading this solution brief.
Enabling maximum efficiency and adequate security, with minimal lag time to your network, is the goal for any organisation looking to build a strong foundation. Read on this article, Deploying an Inline Security Architecture: Key Considerations, for tips on how to deploy an inline security architecture that: Maintains network availability Improves monitoring of network traffic […]
For most organizations’ backup, the process of regularly and consistently protecting production data is fundamentally broken. As a result, these organizations have very little confidence in IT’s ability to recover data at all, let alone promptly. To try to fix broken backups, IT has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at the problem, only to […]
Cyberattacks are still happening. In light of headline-grabbing attacks, businesses are looking to engage with trusted advisors who can help them identify the best cybersecurity solutions to protect their assets without skyrocketing their costs. This gives managed service providers (MSPs) an excellent opportunity to build their cybersecurity practice by implementing a layered, or “multi-vector,” security […]
Threats to network security are on the rise. Ixia just released its third annual security study the Ixia 2019 Security Report, combines lessons learned in 2018 with impactful predictions for 2019. Both the data and the predictions are based upon research conducted by Ixia’s Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) Research Center. Ixia’s third annual Security […]
While compliance is assessed and declared on an annual basis, there are daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly acts, such as patching systems and implementation of compensating controls, that must also be carried out by governance and security experts in order to simply maintain compliance. With these recurring tasks come common pitfalls that can impact an […]
Organizations of all sizes find themselves under siege. More challenging still, the attack surface that needs to be defended keeps expanding. MSPs are expected to be able to provide firewalls, spam and content filtering, intrusion detection, and antivirus services. While demand for those services is high, competition is increasing. The security and compliance opportunity for […]
