Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk.
Achievement First one of the top-performing charter school networks in the U.S., adopted the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform which brought next-generation security capabilities and threat intelligence to automatically detect and block malicious network traffic without impeding everyday learning activity..
Businesses embrace digital technologies that modernize their operations and enable innovation. Yet these same technologies introduce new security vulnerabilities and new data that must be secured. The result is a costly cybersecurity arms race, in which businesses introduce new security products to counter new attack vectors. Individually-managed or standalone security products add complexity, reduce visibility, and strain under-resourced security teams.
Seymour Public Schools was looking to replace their legacy Cisco firewalls, they checked the vulnerability of their existing system using a Security Lifecycle Review. The SLR report showed that more than 43,000 vulnerabilities were slipping past the legacy firewall. Because of this discovery they purchased the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform.
This paper highlights an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause breaches, while enabling organizations to achieve consistent and frictionless cloud protections for multi-cloud environments.
Cybersecurity refers to a set of techniques used to protect the integrity of networks, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. According to Forbes, the global cybersecurity market is expected to reach 170 billion by 2020, fueled by an array of technology trends. This article identifies these trends and discusses why cybersecurity is a requirement to protect our digital way of life, as well as how to maintain effective cybersecurity to prevent successful breaches.
Governments and businesses must continuously assess the use of new applications and services that improve processes and operations. As such, they must weigh the business benefits from the adoption of newly sanctioned applications against potential risk to the business, its data and other resources. Applications themselves, such as remote access, can represent undue risk. In addition, if applications are not appropriately secured in the business network, today’s attackers can hide communications within the very communication mechanisms the applications use. Adoption of security that appropriately identifies, granularly controls and secures enterprise applications can be slow if those charged with such controls don’t understand the necessity, value or ease with which appropriate controls can be adopted.
Download our use case "Secure the Network through Application Visibility" for the benefits of this approach, along with some common concerns over adoption, and read about the experiences of several customers across different industries who made this transition.
