As the financial services industry undergoes a digital transformation to streamline operations, become more competitive, and remain relevant with their customers, they face increasing volume of cyber threats. Attackers continue to be tempted by the vast quantities of easily monetizable personally identifiable information (PII).
Cyberattacks on healthcare providers are increasing in frequency and intensity. A recent HIMSS Analytics survey, commissioned by Palo Alto Networks, targeting chief information officers (CIOs), information technology (IT) directors and IT managers at U.S. inpatient healthcare providers, found that two thirds of survey respondents reported an increase in the frequency of cyberattacks over the past six months.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Palo Alto Networks PA-5250 v8.0.3-h4. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) Test Methodology v3.1 available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Palo Alto Networks’ participation.
AV-Comparatives, the independent organization that tests and assesses antivirus (AV) software, announced the completion of its 2017 “Comparison of Next-Generation Security Products” and presented Traps advanced endpoint protection with its “Approved” award. The firm conducted a series of malware protection and exploit prevention tests on Traps during September and October 2017. Download the report to view the results of this test.
WildFire® cloud-based threat analysis and AutoFocus™ contextual threat intelligence services are two of the powerful core components fueling Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to deliver better protection. Together, these cloud-delivered security services provide the industry’s most advanced analysis and prevention engine for highly evasive zero-day exploits and malware.
Establishing effective IT security defenses is a necessity for the entire healthcare industry, from the largest health systems and payers to single-physician practices, research institutions, and medical device developers.
This paper examines the attacker’s mindset, first providing insights into the motivations and high-level methods shaping today’s threat landscape and accelerating the need for endpoint security technologies capable of preventing – not just detecting – both known and unknown threats.
This eBook explores the unique partnership between Palo Alto Networks and REAN Cloud, and how the two companies work together to help you adopt a DevSecOps mindset and eliminate the friction between your development and security teams
When built on a next-generation security platform, this approach can provide full context and intelligence, enabling the security team to address the unique requirements of the Mac while providing protection for all endpoints.
The purpose of this white paper is to clarify how Networks Aperture™ SaaS security service can be used in compliance with EU data protection requirements, including the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The firewall is the foundation of enterprise data security. All firewalls are not created equal, though and no two organizations have the same needs, risks and data flow. You need a firewall to protect against today’s advanced attacks while preserving the performance and uptime critical to foster innovation and growth. If you’re in the market for a new firewall, we’ll assume you understand the many benefits of next-generation firewall technology, and that a next-generation firewall is the way to go.
But how can you be sure you’re choosing the right next-generation firewall to meet your organization’s specific networking, performance and security needs for the present and the future?
In recent years, cybersecurity has emerged as one of the top concerns for the leader- ship of business and government organi- zations around the world. The troubling number of high-profile attacks targeting some of the largest companies in the world has led many to question whether adequate measures are in place on their own networks. Sophisticated attackers are employing new techniques to penetrate a network, and using methodologies to avoid detection by masking their activities in legitimate application traffic.
This case study discusses the security, risk and compliance ramifications of operating unpatchable systems, such as
Windows® XP and Windows Server 2003. In financial services, these unsupported operating systems may still be found
in ATMs and aging systems that support check scanners, printers for passbooks (bankbooks), ATM cards, on-demand
checkbooks and other legacy banking applications.
SSL-encrypted traffic is growing in government networks, resulting in multiple blind spots for security monitoring tools and creating an opportunity for attackers to hide malware. Many governments are considering or mandating the decryption of encrypted communications moving in and out of their networks. While traditional approaches favor dedicated SSL decryption appliances, these add latency, costs and increase time to resolution for security incidents.
Download our use case “Decrypt SSL and SSH Traffic to Disrupt Attacker Communications and Theft” to learn how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform delivers an integrated approach to SSL decryption that streamlines security operations, improves network performance, and enables agencies to identify and prevent encrypted threats swiftly.
