We’ve arrived at the second anniversary of the Equifax breach and we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. New information came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach. For example, did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realize what happened.
On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever today; Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilize encryption.
During this webinar, we’ll talk about:
-How TLS/SSL encryption has become a threat vector
-Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively pe

Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud
technologies to boost productivity, cost savings
and market reach.
With the added complexity of distributed
network architectures, full visibility is necessary
to ensure continued high performance and
security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.

Users are working off-hours, off-network, and off-VPN. Are you up on all the ways DNS can be used to secure them? If not, maybe it’s time to brush up. More than 91% of malware uses DNS to gain command and control, exfiltrate data, or redirect web traffic. Because DNS is a protocol used by all devices that connect to the internet, security at the DNS layer is critical for achieving the visibility and protection you need for any users accessing the internet. Learn how DNS-layer security can help you block threats before they reach your network or endpoints.

There’s a reason why web application firewalls have been getting so much attention lately. It’s the same reason we keep hearing about major security and data breaches left, right, and center. Web application security is difficult—very difficult.
The most successful businesses are greater than the sum of their parts. When individuals work together well, they fill in each other's blind spots and build on each other's great ideas. These conversations ultimately help teams be more productive, reduce time-to-market and come up with more innovative ideas. But if your teams are spread across different offices, or working from home, can you create the same collaborative magic?
Web-based collaboration tools claim to break down the collaboration barriers that distance can build. Everyone agrees they can reduce the time and cost of travel. And yes, these tools can stream your colleagues' voices, facial expressions, and slide decks into your meeting room, so you can get a clearer picture of verbal and behavioral signals.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
Today, digital security is top-of-mind. From the boardroom to the backroom, everyone is asking the same questions, “How do we protect our digital experiences? How do we ensure our website is safe for our visitors? How do we make sure that no one can steal our content?” But safeguarding a digital experience isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It often involves multiple techniques and layers of security.
From verifying your identity (with HTTPS) to encrypting sensitive data to restricting access and protecting multimedia content, you must approach security in a layered manner, employing multiple means and techniques to protect the digital content through which your audience interacts.
This paper explores ten different methods and technologies that an organization can employ to protect its content. This multi-layered approach can effectively protect your digital content, ensure high availability, and maintain superior quality of experience for every digital visitor.
Your online audience expects fast, flawless, secure experiences on any device in any location, every time. But whether you are delivering videos, your website, music, software or games, ensuring engaging online experiences from an increasing variety of devices around the world is a huge challenge.
Content delivery networks (CDNs) can significantly improve the user experience of your online audiences. But not all CDNs deliver the same level of service. Dos and Don’ts of Evaluating and Deploying a CDN provides tips on how to determine what is most important to your organization and how to choose a CDN that meets your needs.

Cyber-criminals are increasingly sophisticated and targeted in their attacks. If you are in charge of ensuring the security of your company’s website, it has not been easy going as these notable security incidents reveal:
• Sabre Systems—The reservation software company had data from Hard Rock Hotels, Google, Loews, and others, stolen as a result of the breach1.
• CIA—WikiLeaks obtained and published documents detailing the intelligence agency’s hacking efforts1.
• Virgin America—Thousands of employees and contractors had their login information compromised1.
• Equifax—The credit rating agency had a breach into highly sensitive personal information of 143 million U.S. consumers1.
• Universities and Federal Agencies—More than 60 universities and US federal organizations were compromised with SQL injections1.
There are numerous lessons to be learned from these breaches. Despite the growing stream of news stories about highly damaging attacks that compromise customer info
Employees, devices, and applications are no longer locked away inside the corporate perimeter. They’re on the web and on the go. Providing security for a new breed of anytime, anywhere workers and cloud-based applications requires a novel approach: a zero trust security model.
Assuming that every user, request, and server is untrusted until proven otherwise, a zero trust solution dynamically and continually assesses trust every time a user or device requests access to a resource. But zero trust offers more than a line of defense.
The model’s security benefits deliver considerable business value, too. Read this white paper to learn more about:
-Protecting your customers’ data
-Decreasing the time to breach detection
-Gaining visibility into your enterprise traffic
-Reducing the complexity of your security stack
-Solving the security skills shortage
