Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection.
To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet, why traditional secure web gateway (SWG) solutions cannot address these gaps, and why a new kind of internet gateway represents an entirely new way of thinking about securing your users
"Digital Transformation Is Changing How Enterprises Provide Secure Web Access to Users.
According to Gartner, “Digital business and edge computing have inverted access requirements, with more users, devices, applications, services, and data located outside of an enterprise than inside.”
A New Approach to Enterprise Security in the Cloud Is Needed.
Gartner recommends, “Complexity, latency and the need to decrypt and inspect encrypted traffic once will increase demand for consolidation of networking and security-as-a-service capabilities into a cloud-delivered secure access service edge (SASE, pronounced “sassy”).” This new approach requires an Internet isolation solution that:
- Provides 100 percent malware-free email and web browsing
- Preserves the native email and web browsing experience
- Gives users ubiquitous yet secure access wherever they work
Menlo already offers the solution that delivers on Gartner’s vision of network security in the cloud. Find out more by downloading t
"The “detect and prevent” approach has reached its potential, and attackers have learned how to bypass this defense method. Verizon reports that 2018 was a record year, with 41,686 reported security incidents and 2,013 confirmed cybersecurity breaches. What’s more appalling is that studies have shown that 68 percent of breaches take months or longer to detect.
Menlo Security’s Internet Isolation Platform enables the Zero Trust Internet, which takes the guesswork out of security by assuming that all Internet content and websites are malicious.
- How companies are able to separate their enterprise network from the public web while still allowing employees to have seamless access to the Internet.
- How you can warn employees that they are on a phishing site when they’ve fallen for a real phishing attack.
- How you never have to worry about malware, viruses, or ransomware being downloaded."
As organizations expand their cloud footprints, they need to reevaluate and consider who has access to their infrastructure at any given time. This can often be a large undertaking and lead to complex, sprawling network security interfaces across applications, workloads, and containers. Aporeto on Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables security administrators to unify their security management and visibility to create consistent policies across all their instances and containerized environments. Join the upcoming webinar to learn how Informatica leveraged Aporeto to create secure, keyless access for all their users.
DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web
Trying to keep up with the growing number of instances and containers, Informatica would spin up new security policies with shared key access. This led to a sprawling, complex network of multiple security interfaces that were difficult to manage.
Informatica began working with Aporeto to track, block, and audit users through their environment, and eventually implemented keyless SSH access to their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances.
Read our case study to learn how Aporeto saved Informatica hundreds of development hours with automated authentication and authorization policies across their environment.

More and more financial institutions are partnering with fintechs and leveraging Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to attract new prospects and to delight current consumers through unprecedented Customer Experience (CX). APIs offer a bridge between systems while paving a digital path to a connected financial ecosystem.
The institutions that are able to drive this digital transformation successfully, do not think of these capabilities as additional channels and services. Rather, these institutions understand that they must move from a vision of banking as a physical network of branches and ATMs, to a digital platform, comprising core capabilities such as account servicing and the provision of financial products that can be accessed wherever, and whenever, customers wish.
Join this webinar and learn how these institutions are building a digital banking platform with APIs.

Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud
technologies to boost productivity, cost savings
and market reach.
With the added complexity of distributed
network architectures, full visibility is necessary
to ensure continued high performance and
security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.
Users are working off-hours, off-network, and off-VPN. Are you up on all the ways DNS can be used to secure them? If not, maybe it’s time to brush up. More than 91% of malware uses DNS to gain command and control, exfiltrate data, or redirect web traffic. Because DNS is a protocol used by all devices that connect to the internet, security at the DNS layer is critical for achieving the visibility and protection you need for any users accessing the internet. Learn how DNS-layer security can help you block threats before they reach your network or endpoints.
As networks become decentralized and users connect directly to SaaS applications, backhauling traffic to apply security policies just isn’t efficient. Plus, backhauling internet bound traffic is expensive, and it adds latency. More and more branch offices are migrating to direct internet access (DIA). Find out how to quickly and easily secure this traffic.

When’s the last time someone said they liked VPN? The way we work has changed. We access apps from any device, from anywhere, and we expect a fast, seamless experience when we do so. Now, enterprises are able to deliver this, and improve security with cloud services called Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) technologies. A modern alternative to VPN.
Now that 72.3% of cloud users have a mix of on-prem/off-prem clouds, the networking game has changed. Traditional app delivery solutions can’t ensure reliable, secure access in a SaaS, multi-device, hybrid, and multi-cloud world.
Get this solution brief to learn why a holistic strategy innately reduces complexities that otherwise would prohibit visibility and control in distributed architectures. The brief also explains:

How to ensure reliable access to apps at branch and remote locations while keeping costs low
How to provide full visibility and analytics for your network, applications, users, and data
In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, more and more is happening off-network. More roaming users. More corporate-owned laptops accessing the internet from other networks. More cloud apps, letting users get work done off the corporate network. And more branch offices connecting directly to the internet.
How secure is your company’s network?
The rising frequency of employee network access is fast becoming one of the most prevalent and unmanaged risks to the protection of critical enterprise data. When coupled with increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks, the possibility of a security breach of enterprise networks becomes more likely.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.

Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.
