In years past, device functionality was enough to sell most embedded products without much concern for cybersecurity. Of course there were exceptions, such as in critical infrastructure, aviation, and military, for which security was always of importance. But todays environment has evolved on several fronts. First, organizations across nearly all markets are demanding Internet connectivity to monitor and control devices as well as to aggregate and analyze data. Second, the magnitude of security threats has exploded, driven by highly sophisticated hackers including organized criminal gangs seeking financial returns, creating a constantly evolving threat landscape. Third, the increasingly complex nature of connected systems makes them ever more challenging to protect. The more complex a system, the more potential vulnerabilities it may contain. And fourth, the data generated by connected devices represent an asset that is becoming increasingly valuable for organizations to derive insigh

"Multi-stage attacks are an increasingly popular approach used by cybercriminals. By sending a malicious attachment in a phishing email that contains an embedded URL, with no malevolent code, attackers can evade existing security solutions, like sandboxes and AV.
How do you prevent these attacks before they happen?

*How Menlo Security Labs recently isolated a multi-stage document attack
*What tools, techniques and procedures ( TTPs ) are attackers using to infect victims devices
*How Isolation can foil the attack before it can even start

The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as things or edge devices, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
theyre part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Todays advanced cyber threats target every computer and
mobile device, including enterprise endpoints, especially
those that make up critical infrastructure like industrial
control systems and embedded devices that control much
of our physical world. The modern computing landscape
consists of a complex array of physical, mobile, cloud, and
virtual computing, creating a vast attack surface. Meanwhile,
the cybersecurity industry is prolific with defense-in-depth
security technologies, despite a threat landscape that remains
highly dynamic, sophisticated, and automated.
Cylance, however, takes a unique and innovative approach
of using real-time, mathematical, and machine learning
threat analysis to solve this problem at the endpoint for
organizations, governments, and end-users worldwide.
"SSL certificates have moved beyond the Buy page. They are embedded in your business. In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers, different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services.
The risks of hiccups and problems increases with the number of certificates, including lost sales when customers see security warnings about expired certificates on your site, damage to your brand and consumer trust because of problems with certificates and more.
With these risks in mind, this guide provides five simple steps for IT professionals to take control of SSL certificates across the enterprise, and recommendations centralizing certificate management throughout their lifecycle."

Industry research suggests there is significant interest in making DevOps more secure. In fact, Gartner reports "by 2021, DevSecOps practices will be embedded in 80% of rapid development teams, up from 15% in 2017." To help you effectively integrate security into your organizations DevOps practice, Tenable encourages you to read the Gartner report, 10 Things to Get Right for Successful DevSecOps. Loaded with specific detailed recommendations, the report covers topics including:
- Integrating security and compliance testing seamlessly into DevOps processes
- Scanning for known vulnerabilities and miscongurations in all open-source and third-party components
- Scaling infosec into DevOps by using a security champion model
