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.
This paper from IDC, a premier global provider of market intelligence, examines modern endpoint protection, describing how the evolution of malware has created a need for a modernized approach to endpoint protection.
Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk. Download this white paper to explore the benefits of the CSF and how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform capabilities map to and fulfill CSF subcategories.
Establishing, maintaining, and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for everyone in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as companies that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data. With approximately three hundred individual requirements to address, organizations subject to the standard have their work cut out for them.
This white paper will explain how Palo Alto Networks® Next Generation Security Platform allows PCI system operators to significantly enhance security and exceed PCI DSS requirements through segmentation and mitigating risks of malware and unpatched systems.
Establishing, maintaining and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD). For all system components included in or connected to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), organizations must comply with more than three hundred requirements. It is in every organization’s best interest, therefore, to take advantage of network segmentation provisions stated in the PCI DSS to effectively isolate their CDE and thereby decrease the amount of infrastructure that is considered in scope.
Your Perimeter Is Everywhere. The world you need to secure is undergoing tremendous transformation. Global expansion, mobile workforces and cloud computing are shifting the location of your applications, data and users. These changes introduce new opportunities for business, but they also create a set of cybersecurity risks.
These tectonic shifts in location strain an organization’s ability to protect data and stop threats consistently.
The mandate for security has not changed, but the ability to deliver protection at each location is at a crossroads. Many organizations, faced with the rising costs of extending the perimeter using conventional methods, are left with few other choices. These consequences place organizations at risk. It is important to understand where the risks lie to evaluate what must be done to bring security back into balance.
In a competitive and rapidly changing industry that’s continually targeted by cyberthreats, creating a secure digital foundation is critical to success. Read this platform brief for a concise summary of how Palo Alto Networks helps retailers secure customer data while thwarting cyberattacks, streamlining security operations, and granting appropriate network access to employees, customers, suppliers and partners.
Governments around the world are undergoing change. Whether reducing data center footprints, virtualizing existing services to reduce costs and "go green", or advancing security strategies to thwart advanced attacks in the field or at home, governments are demanding more from their cybersecurity solutions today.
In today’s growing data center threat landscape, an effective cybersecurity strategy is imperative for software-defined data centers. VMware® and Palo Alto Networks® have partnered on a solution that leverages NSX™ to enable provisioning and seamless insertion of VM-Series next-generation firewall and advanced threat prevention in your software-defined data centers.
