Theft and abuse of stolen passwords is one of the oldest attacks in the book, yet it remains highly effective. Adversaries can use stolen credentials to impersonate valid users, allowing them to bypass the entire attack lifecycle, move uninterrupted throughout their target organization’s network and shift to the abuse of credentials from within. You can prevent credential theft with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform by stopping credential leakage, blocking access to phishing sites and enforcing multi-factor authentication security policy in the network.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
