How to protect against mobile malware.
Mobility is transforming enterprises at an unprecedented rate with the continued proliferation of smart devices, explosive development of mobile apps and increased access to work files. Employees are empowered by their organizations to be more productive at virtually any time and from anywhere, adopting policies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and even allowing the use of personal apps for work-related activities.
However, organizations have not kept pace with this mobility explosion by deploying the enterprise-grade security needed to protect their sensitive information. Hackers and thieves are seizing on this opportunity to penetrate networks and acquire sensitive work data from mobile endpoints. IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate these mobile threats.
Essentials for your organization’s first MDM deployment.
IBM’s security platform provides the security intelligence to help organizations holistically protect their people, data, applications and infrastructure. IBM offers solutions for identity and access management, security information and event management, database security, application development, risk management, endpoint management, next-generation intrusion protection and more. IBM operates one of the world’s broadest security research and development, and delivery organizations.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
The frequency of “mega breaches” continues to rise at an alarming rate. In fact, crippling incidents involving tens of millions of customer records, theft of highly valuable intellectual property, and related criminal activity have become commonplace. This report asserts that many such breaches could be prevented by deploying next-generation endpoint protection technology in concert with an aggressive proactive hunting strategy. This potent combination provides the most effective means to reduce attack surfaces and defend against advanced adversaries.Download the white paper to:?Learn how a proactive hunting strategy protects valuable data assets from a potential mega breach?Get a detailed analysis of how highly skilled human hunters pair with technology to aggressively seek out threat behaviors?Understand why integrating CrowdStrike Falcon Overwatch into an organization’s existing security resources offers the most comprehensive protection against persistent and skilled adversaries?Fi

" For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.
A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices,
and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.
Download this free white paper and explore how DataStax customers are delivering real-time value at epic scale with their cloud applications. Explore the core database requirements that make businesses successful with cloud applications, which include continuous availability, linear scale, and geographic distribution."
SE Labs tested CylancePROTECT® in an offline environment against major threats that subsequently appeared in the wild. The test explores the product’s ability to prevent new threats from attacking endpoint systems successfully. CylancePROTECT contains technology designed to identify and block malware using what it claims to be an “artificial intelligence” (AI) model. This model can be updated over time. However, in this test we used the model created in May 2015 and did not permit further updates so that the software was unable to receive new models or edit the existing one. The test exposed systems protected by this older version of CylancePROTECT to very impactful threats discovered and reported widely after May 2015. In this way, the test shows to what extent the product was able to predict how future threats would appear. This “Predictive Advantage” (PA), the advantage that users of the product have against future adversaries, is presented in this report.
Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

Cyber attacks are increasing in frequency, sophistication, and effectiveness.1 The ongoing trend of
successful attacks demonstrates that cybersecurity practices are not keeping pace with modern
threats. Is your organization well-defended, or living on borrowed time?
Here are ten signs to help you determine whether your endpoint protection is primed for action or
ready for retirement.

You know that visibility is critical to security. You simply can’t secure what you can’t see. Read this Gartner research note to learn why visibility through a continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment (CARTA) approach is key to securing digital business. Download now to learn eight ways this approach can be deployed to optimize the visibility into your organization’s cloud services, mobile endpoints, and digital ecosystems. Compliments of Gigamon.
There is one certainty with cybersecurity and that is nothing is certain. Take for example the role the endpoint plays in keeping an enterprise secure. While many cybersecurity professionals are relatively certain that endpoints are locked down and security policies are being enforced, the simple fact of the matter is that endpoints prove to be the root of most compromises.
As companies embrace cloud services and encourage employee mobility, digital interactions with company resources have become more distributed and virtualized, blurring the traditional concept of the endpoint. Forrester Research surveyed 1000+ IT professionals to better understand how endpoint security challenges are changing for enterprises.
To protect company and customer data, it is increasingly necessary for enterprises to revisit how they approach endpoint security. Read the research brief to uncover key trends in enterprise security, and how IT can protect their enterprise through a more secure and managed web browser.
