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.
Examine the business impact of malware, ransomware, and phishing, as well as the cost of the average data breach. Given the significant economic impact of these threats, understanding your financial exposure and employing a layered defense simply makes sense.
There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people?
The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.
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.
Given the wide range of technology options available, it's important for healthcare IT executives to pick the right image management technology and approach for a long-term sustainable solution delivering the desired performance and ROI. This whitepaper explores solutions for multi-layered neutrality, a standards-based framework for unifying medical images and clinical documents across the enterprise and community.
Globally, payments are going digital—whether they are cash moving to cards, QR codes at point of sale (POS), purchases moving from physical to online stores with electronic forms of payment, or payments becoming seamless with in-app experiences. This phenomenon is not new, but does appear to be accelerating.
This increased speed of adoption is driven by multiple factors, including an abundance of new electronic payment methods—many of which are layered on top of existing payment methods— focused on convenience, speed and the overall consumer experience.

DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.

If you are among the IT professionals feeling a little uneasy about relying solely on the email security provided by Microsoft in Office 365™, you are not alone.
Here’s the good news, you can regain the same sense of security that you had when you were managing email servers on-premises with the right third-party solution.
TechTarget summarizes how you can easily and effectively realize the benefits of Office 365 with a complementary third-party solution that can not only mirror the kind of layered security built for on-premises solutions, but also ensure uninterrupted access to Office 365 email, even if it crashes.

The SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps
organizations protect their systems. During May and June 2017, CTU™ researchers identified lessons
learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and
• The global WCry and NotPetya campaigns reinforced the need for a layered approach
• Attacks used obfuscated malicious files and scripts to bypass filtering and deliver malware.
• A Chinese threat group has had repeated success using compromised websites to attack
• Threat actors have been stealing intellectual property from Japanese enterprises.
One way to shift testing practices earlier in your software lifecycle is by using multi-layered visual models to specify requirements in a way where all ambiguity is inherently removed. With unambiguous and complete requirements, developers introduce less defects into their code and manual test cases, automated test scripts and required test data can be automatically generated based on the requirement, without manual intervention.
Even with more advanced features and supposed higher throughput than ever before, firewalls are not able to keep up with modern demands or advanced threats. Users are more distributed than ever, and so is data. Threats are
changing rapidly, and traditional defense mechanisms that rely on layered security do not work.
Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology yet major breaches and compromises are more
prevalent than ever. The concept of “layered security” in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers doesn’t seem to be working. It’s time to rethink IT security not just the technology, but the way it’s approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.
