WannaCry is still fresh in our memory, reminding organizations of how distractive an unpatched vulnerability can be especially if weaponized as a wormable threat that delivers ransomware. BlueKeep has been estimated to have the same disruptive potential as EternalBlue (the exploit responsible for WannaCry) if sporting worm-like behavior, especially since RDP is a commonly used service in organizations, allowing IT and security teams to remotely dial into machines.

The global software defined data center (SDDC) market is estimated to reach US$90.416 billion by 2022, from US$36.517 billion in 2017, meaning that companies will continue on the path of software defined everything. While the immediate benefits of SDDCs revolve around less CapEx, OpEx, centralized management, and the deployment of cloud in a box, organizations need to prepare for challenges facing when adhering to SDDCs.
While modern technology makes possible new business models to drive growth and profitability, digital transformation opens your business to more cybersecurity risks, according to a survey by Thales and 451 Research.
Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection recently won the SCMagazine Innovator Award, marking the fact that truly groundbreaking security technologies have started to receive validation from the market, as traditional security solutions fail to cope with the ever-increasing complexity of advanced threats.
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).
Bitdefender has been named an Advisory Board member for the Linux Foundation-hosted Xen Project formed of major cloud companies, virtualization providers, enterprises and silicon vendors that advise and support development of Xen Project software for cloud computing, embedded, IoT use-cases, automotive and security applications.
Virtualizations plays a critical role in today’s data centers, as it was designed to reduce operational costs while boosting performance and efficiency. The emergence of software-defined data centers (SDDC) and hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) that rely on an extra abstraction layer enables faster provisioning of storage, compute and networking resources while offering IT admins an automation architecture through the use of APIs and policies.
Digitalization has brought new opportunities for companies and new challenges for IT teams. If legacy data centers were built around vendor-specific hardware, requiring dedicated manpower and software for maintenance, hyperconvergence (HCI) and today’s software-defined data centers (SDDC) introduce a new abstraction layer that turns hardware into a commodity.
Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection has been awarded Best New Technology at Orlando’s Citrix Synergy 2017, a prize that acknowledges innovative and buzz-worthy products that excite judges and conference attendees.
Last Friday (April 14, 2017), just before Easter, an egg was laid by The Shadow Brokers, a group that hopped into the spotlight in mid-2016. This time, the group dropped an especially colorful release, in the form of Eternalblue.
When companies suffer a data breach, employees are usually key in enabling hackers to access to the infrastructure to steal sensitive information. In spite of billion-dollar efforts to bolster corporate security and educate employees, Internet users in the US still have little knowledge about basic cybersecurity, according to a recent Pew Research survey.
Organizations have been facing an increase in sophisticated cyberattacks attributed to governments or corporate and financial espionage. What’s striking is that it takes companies an average of 5 months to detect a data breach, easily enough to incur even crippling losses.
