Web and mobile applications are now top attack vectors for cyber attackers, accounting for more than a third of data breaches. As a result, securing the application layer has now become a high priority for enterprises. Enterprise application security testing solutions for Web, native, cloud and mobile applications are key to this strategy.
In the latest Gartner 2015 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing, Veracode has been positioned as a Leader for the third year in a row based on our completeness of vision and ability to execute in the AST market.

A large and growing number of security solutions are being touted as the ""next generation"" in cyber defense, and endpoint protection products are no exception. This has led to widespread confusion about which solutions have truly incorporated next-generation technologies and approaches, and which ones are making empty claims or half-hearted attempts.
CrowdStrike developed this white paper to help you sift through the hype and uncover the critical elements that a true next-generation endpoint security solution must include.

? An explanation of the essential elements of Next-Generation Endpoint Protection
? An evaluation matrix for comparing the potential impact of different solutions
? A list of the top questions to ask potential vendors
? Tools to help you measure and compare different solutions
This year’s Cyber Intrusion Services Casebook focuses on in-depth digital forensics, incident response (IR) and remediation services performed on behalf of actual CrowdStrike clients. Real-life examples drawn from notable CrowdStrike Services IR engagements in 2016 — including the now-infamous hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) —are covered with an emphasis on best practices organizations can follow to identify and eject attackers before a devastating breach occurs.

• How CrowdStrike’s Falcon OverWatch and professional services teams discovered and attributed the DNC intrusion to nation-state threat actors FANCY BEAR and COZY BEAR
• The gaps in security processes and planning that your organization can address now to stop the next breach
• The specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) a range of nation-state and eCrime adversaries used to penetrate their victims’ defenses, and how they attempted to cover their tracks
All ML technology isn’t created equal. Learn how the CrowdStrike® ML-based Engine Defends Against Unknown Malware. While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterday’s signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, today’s unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. What’s the answer?
A new white paper, “The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” explains machine learning (ML) technology — what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. You’ll also learn about CrowdStrike’s exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platform’s next-gen AV solution, it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.
As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa
The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing.
Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial
results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving
Cybercrime has rapidly evolved, and not for the better. What began in the 1990s as innocent pranks designed to uncover holes in Windows servers and other platforms soon led to hacker Kevin Mitnick causing millions of dollars in malicious damages, landing him in prison for half a decade and raising the awareness of cybersecurity enough to jump-start a multimillion-dollar antivirus industry. Then came the script kiddies, unskilled hackers who used malicious code written by others to wreak havoc, often just for bragging rights. If only that were still the case.
Credential stuffing is on the rise. Bots are getting smarter and malicious actors are getting more confident. Unfortunately, these advanced cyberattacks are also becoming more difficult to detect with standard security controls.
Learn more about credential stuffing and how you can protect your business, your brand, and your customers from bots that commit fraudulent activity.
Since the sepia-toned days of the early 19th century, industry has sought effective ways to control manufacturing and production processes. New technology has greatly influenced factories and plants, resulting in new operational approaches to maximize benefits and achieve 100% ROI in a very short time.
Power industries - including Nuclear, Fossil, Hydro, Wind and Geothermal - are susceptible to a variety of cyber threats which can wreak havoc on control systems. Management, engineering and IT must commit to a comprehensive approach that encompasses threat prevention, detection and elimination.
Cybersecurity threats are an unfortunate reality for industry everywhere. How do you protect your business while still embracing new technologies that enable you to grow and deliver the best possible results? Robust cybersecurity protection is a must, as well as rigorous mindset, policies, and methodologies. Download the whitepaper to learn more.

Companies are facing massive cyber security challenges – many of which are rooted in the endpoint. In fact, according to IDC, 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. If you are a Kaspersky Lab customer, and still have breaches in your endpoint security, then something isn’t working. Perhaps you’re struggling to prevent advanced attacks, or your security team may be burdened by maintaining overly complex policies. You and your end users may even be facing performance issues.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, then your endpoint security products may actually be creating more problems than they solve. Ask these questions and find out for yourself.

Due to recent cyberattacks, security operations centers (SOCs) have had to focus on a holistic and cohesive security strategy by consolidating the right people, processes and technology to mitigate and remediate attacks.
This white paper, “The Five Essential Capabilities of an Analytics-Driven SOC”, dives into the necessity of SOCs to be analytics driven and how it helps IT and business leaders assess their own risk levels.
