Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance.
Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019.
While threat actors made themselves busy with challenging new victims, they ensnared targets in the old ways, using tried-and-true malspam and social engineering tactic

For any sized organization, securing data and networks today is a daunting task. New vulnerabilities are discovered almost daily; new malware strains are developed as soon as a detection script is written for the old ones; and cybercriminals can buy prepackaged exploit kits on the Darknet backed by professional support teams. As a security analyst, you need more than a few point solutions designed to defend the network’s edge. You need visibility, perspective and an innate sense of when things just don’t seem right.
A significant challenge for many organizations has been enabling their analysts to find the "unknown
unknown." Whether that unknown is malware lurking within the enterprise or within slight variations in
fraudulent transactions, the result has been the same: enterprises continue to fall victim to cybercrime.
IBM is addressing this challenge with IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis. By pairing multi-dimensional
visual analysis capabilities with powerful analytics tools, IBM is giving the analyst team an effective
early-detection, cyberintelligence weapon for its arsenal.
The importance of IT security to a business has never been greater. But often, investments are shelved or cutbacks are made. This can result in businesses unknowingly making compromises regarding their IT security.
In this latest whitepaper from Kaspersky Lab, you’ll find useful facts, examples and business case arguments to help you get buy-in and commitment from your business.
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.

From sophisticated new forms of malware to nation-state sponsored attacks and the advanced persistent threat, cybersecurity incidents have evolved at a rapid pace and are taking down entire networks, successfully stealing sensitive data and costing organizations millions to remediate.
In this white paper this report, you'll receive a comprehensive overview of survey results and expert analysis on:
The top security threats for global organizations in 2013;
The largest gaps in organization's detection and response to threats;
How these gaps will be filled in the coming year - new staff, tools or services;
What organizations must do to stay ahead of these advanced threats.
Juniper Networks hybrid cloud architecture enables enterprises to build secure, high performance environments across private and public cloud data centers. The easy-tomanage, scalable architecture keeps operational costs down, allowing users to do more with fewer resources. Security is optimized by the space-efficient Juniper Networks® SRX Series Services Gateways, which are next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) with fully integrated, cloud-informed threat intelligence that offers outstanding performance, scalability, and integrated security services. Designed for high-performance security environments and seamless integration of networking, along with advanced malware detection with Juniper Sky™ Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP), application visibility and control, and intrusion prevention on a single platform, the SRX Series firewalls are best suited for enterprise hybrid cloud deployments.
Malware detection and cloud services are two areas of continuing disparity among SWG vendors. Our market analysis of the vendors highlights key differences in these capabilities and other key functions.

When it comes to fighting modern malware, there is no “silver bullet” that can guard against every threat every time. That’s why McAfee takes a different approach. We combine multiple layers of advanced malware protection, detection, and correction technologies into a single endpoint defense fabric. To keep up with cyberthreat innovation, effective detection and analysis requires new state-of-the-art anti-malware technologies: Real Protect and Dynamic Application Containment, complemented by the McAfee® Advanced Threat Defense sandbox. Find out how these tools work together to systematically protect against the most dangerous malware threats.

In this recent report, the Aberdeen Group’s research revealed that 100% of Best-in-Class companies consume some managed security services as part of their security strategy. The most widely deployed and easiest to implement managed security service is email security.
The status quo approach of collecting more logs from more sources won't help in detecting and responding to advanced threats. Logs are inherently limited in the level security visibility that they provide. Consider a new way of looking at SIEM.
To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics.
Starting with a foundational set of data management and analytic capabilities enables organizations to effectively build and scale security management as the enterprise evolves to meet Big Data challenges.
This paper details why organization needs to shift more security resources from preventing intrusion toward rapid threat detection and remediation, and the intelligence-driven security approach that is required to do so.
Mid-size enterprises face the challenges of managing advanced threats plus staff and budget constraints. This on-demand webcast explains how RSA Security Analytics provides visibility, threat intelligence, and analytics – and how you can start small.
This paper focuses on defining levels of critical incident response maturity and how organizations can continually improve their incident response capabilities to help reduce the risk of experiencing a damaging incident. It provides a framework to help organizations determine where they are in the security journey and where they want to be.
