"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat.
The network is the foundation of robust security, and the critical network security element is the firewall. For that reason, Cisco has been committed to delivering a next-generation firewall that can stop threats at the edge and focus on security efficacy. Those efforts are paying off in substantial momentum, and market observers are taking note.
Cisco has been named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Beginning with our world-class threat-intelligence organization, Talos - the Cisco NGFW stands out from the competition. It goes beyond prevention and gives visibility into potentially malicious file activity across users, hosts, networks, and infrastructure. It saves you time and enables automation using our integrated architecture.
No other firewall vendor have the strength and breadth of networking and security capabilities that Cisco offers. Learn More about it by downloading Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities.
The NGFW should:
1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection
2. Provide complete and unified management
3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints
4. Offer comprehensive network visibility
5. Help reduce complexity and costs
6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions
7. Provide investment protection
This white paper explains this checklist in depth and provides examples of the benefits a truly effective NGFW solution can deliver.

This white paper is intended to help CISOs understand how Lollipop and Android for Work can meet critical security and compliance requirements, even in high-security organizations. It also provides recommendations for implementing Lollipop and Android for Work as part of a BYOD program.
The misuse or takeover of privileged accounts constitutes the most common source of breaches today. CA Threat Analytics for PAM provides a continuous, intelligent monitoring capability that helps enterprises detect and stop hackers and malicious insiders before they cause damage.
The software integrates a powerful set of user behavior analytics and machine learning algorithms with the trusted controls provided by CA Privileged Access Manager (CA PAM). The result is a solution that continuously analyzes the activity of individual users, accurately detects malicious and high-risk activities and automatically triggers mitigating controls to limit damage to the enterprise.
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.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.
Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular,
are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to
“go on the hunt.”
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on
the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave
behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking
with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t
Though insider threats are not new, the challenge to get ahead of them has not lessened over the past decade. In this paper you’ll find insights on why detecting and deterring malicious lateral movement is an essential part of an insider threat program, how you can monitor for unauthorized access without eroding employee trust, and how you can expedite the investigation of potential malicious insider activity.
Attack Surface Manager (ASM) gives security teams unprecedented power to easily implement a cyber hygiene program to harden their networks against malicious lateral movement of cyberattackers. This paper provides an overview of common ways that Illusive's customers are using Attack Surface Manager, including fortifying PAM/PIM solutions, detecting insider threats and malicious insider activity, and providing powerful, automated Red Team functions.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors
Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptocurrency’s market volatility could make it much more lucrative than ransomware. Find out who they’re targeting and how to protect your network.
Another look at what our Research team at ESET, LLC came up with at the end of 2008 for a "top 10 things that people can do to protect themselves against malicious activity." Updated with more recent material from other members of ESET's research teams across the globe.
The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up.
Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.
This white paper examines five steps to better security that today's retail businesses can't afford to ignore on their networks - from application control to data loss prevention - to ensure business continuity and PCI DSS compliance.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. But it’s not built on skills alone. Eight tools are equally as essential for keeping your situational awareness—and your network—alive.
Phoenix Children’s CISO, Daniel Shuler, and its IT security team are responsible for protecting 5,000 endpoints in the hospital and across more than 20 clinics in the region. Endpoints include physician and staff laptops and desktops, nursing stations, servers, Windows-based clinical devices, credit card payment processors, and point-of-sale terminals. These endpoints are used to store and/or process personal health information (PHI), and payment and credit card information. They must comply with HIPAA for PHI and voluntarily comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for credit card data. The IT security team’s existing industry-leading AV solution claimed to provide visibility into malicious activity aimed at the endpoints. It continuously reported all endpoints were safe, sound, and secure. This caused Daniel to be suspicious. He knew from experience that such low levels of endpoint malicious activity was highly unlikely. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.
