In a report published by the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Homeland Security concluded what most security professionals have known for years: that botnets are a global threat, that technologies exist to mitigate the threats but aren’t widely used for multiple reasons, poor product security design and development, counter-productive market incentives, and low education and awareness across all market participants.

Fraudsters have moved from making a fast buck to crafting more ambitious, targeted attacks that produce long-term profits, according to an extensive analysis of real-world cybercrime attacks.
Italian IT decision makers perceive security is best argument for enabling datacenters’ agility, efficiency and flexibility. Companies have started moving away from legacy hardware-centric systems and toward revolutionary technologies - such as software-defined data centers, hyperconverged infrastructures, and, hybrid cloud - while keeping data protection as a prime concern.
A survey of 612 Chief Information Security Officers suggests CISOs have a tough road ahead in an ongoing climate of high-profile data breaches.
U.S. federal government agencies today are among the biggest users of cloud services. This is a result of years of effort to shift data and workloads to the cloud in order to reduce spending and increase efficiency.
Just months before the EU General Data Protection Regulation takes effect globally, more than half of US-based employees in various industries have never heard of the upcoming regulation, according to a survey by adaptive training experts at MediaPro.
With another year of too many high profile, and quite frankly avoidable, data breaches under our belts, it’s time to take a look forward and identify areas where you may be able to improve your security program and hopefully become more efficient and reduce risk more effectively.
It’s not always the bad guys that sabotage enterprise security efforts, sometimes organizations do that all on their own.
Security researchers at Google this week made public two vulnerabilities in almost every modern processor shipped since 1995 that could allow attackers to steal passwords, encryption keys and other sensitive information.
In the technology world, it is rare that three uniquely positioned vendors converge to provide a common solution which addresses security, performance, and operational benefits as Bitdefender, Citrix, and Nutanix have around Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
When it comes to enterprise security, cloud was supposed to help simplify security efforts. But it didn’t turn out that way. Today, the typical large enterprise has its legacy environments, public clouds, private clouds, private hosted clouds, and various hybrid flavors of each to secure. And within those systems applications are becoming containerized, and broken into many different discrete services. All of this is not only fundamentally changing the way enterprises must secure their environments, but also significantly increasing the complexity in doing so.
