In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.
This white paper examines why IPS devices and firewalls fail to stop DDoS threats. It also describes how an intelligent DDoS mitigation system (IDMS) offers an ideal solution by enabling a layered defense strategy to combat DDoS attacks.
The Cisco® ASA 5500 Series Business Edition is an enterprise-strength comprehensive security solution that combines market-leading firewall, VPN, and optional content security capabilities, so you can feel confident your business is protected. This easy-to-use solution lets you control access to network resources to protect business data and maximize network uptime.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco ASA 5525---X v5.3.1. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) methodology v5.4 available on www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s participation. For additional information on NGFW technology, refer to the NSS Analysis Brief entitled “What Do CIOs Need to Know About Next Generation Firewalls?”
Prevent breaches, get deep visibility to detect and stop threats fast, and automate your network and security operations to save time and work smart. Here are 5 tips to keep in mind when choosing a Next Generation Firewall for your business.
Creating Your Needs Analysis First. When buying networking equipment: routers, switches, firewalls, and network management solutions for your company or organization, it's essential to create a needs analysis first, so that you make the right decisions from multiple standpoints
If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.
As businesses grow increasingly dependent upon Web applications, these complex entities are becoming more difficult to secure. Most companies equip their Web sites with firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and network and host security, but the majority of attacks are on applications themselves.
Integrated Threat Management For Dummies, IBM Security Limited Edition, lays the foundation for effective tools and techniques that work together to help counter today’s advanced threats. Regardless of your role in the IT security organization, threat management tools and techniques will influence your job. Your role determines the part you play to effectively manage threats, including those targeting the cloud and your company’s data.
If you are a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or security manager, this book explains in detail the types of tools you need to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to security incidents. If you’re in general business management, you’ll better understand the risks associated with enterprise computing and the reasons why a comprehensive portfolio of security tools that work well together is so important.
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) represents the third wave of Internet usage after SMTP (email) and HTTP (Web). Download this free guide now and learn why all firewalls will need to be SIP capable in order to support the wide-scale deployment of enterprise person-to-person communications.
Companies of all sizes with multiple remote locations can benefit from plug-and-play next-generation firewalls. Traditional methods can take a long time to implement and can prove expensive. With plug-and-play deployments, on the other hand, you save money, conserve resources, reduce the likelihood of errors, and get single-pane-of-glass centralized management.
Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.
Unlike Wi-Fi access, 3G mobile broadband is available anywhere users have a mobile phone signal-from. From taxis, to trains, to remote stretches of road - your workforce will have access to critical data. If your company is even considering about deploying mobile broadband to its workforce, read this guide now!
The SRX Series features a carrier-grade next-generation firewall with layered security services such as application security, unified threat management (UTM), integrated IPS, and advanced integrated threat intelligence to guard against cyber threats and malware.
As with sports cars, performance is a top buying criteria for firewalls. Because if you can’t keep up with the traffic—real traffic, not traffic in the labs—your apps will be unhappy, and your users even more so.
How did firewalls develop to provide the strong, deep security and sophisticated capabilities that they offer us today? It’s a long story that took place over a relatively short period of time, and most likely you were part of it.
