Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) represent a unique threat to government data. APTs are increasingly formidable and ferocious.
Agencies can no longer depend on virus scanning software. They can no longer simply patrol their digital perimeter. Adversaries lurk until they can sneak undetected past traditional security measures to infiltrate networks – and the problem is growing worse.
This Securosis whitepaper analyzes the disruption happening at the enterprise perimeter, the various technical architectures capable of addressing the new requirements, and deployment considerations for optimal security, availability, and performance. The whitepaper also guides you through advanced firewall features such as IPS, content filtering, and anti-malware.
Palo Alto Networks was recognized as a leader. And according to Gartner, vendors in the leaders quadrant "lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability, rather than treating the firewall as a commodity, and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products."
This whitepaper, written by a SANS analyst, provides the latest research regarding social networking applications, explains the benefits and risks they bring to corporate networks, and provides a recommendation for defining a secure social networking policy.
Governments around the world are undergoing change. Whether reducing their data center footprints, virtualizing existing services to reduce costs and “go green”, or advancing security to thwart today’s advanced attacks in the field or at home, governments have different requirements of their cybersecurity solutions today. Palo Alto Networks® provides some of today’s most innovative, advanced, and flexible cybersecurity options available to meet today’s government requirements.
Defense in Depth does not mean more security tools. The key to thwarting advanced attacks in today’s government networks is to reduce the attack surface to increase visibility to what matters: the anomalies in your network, across the kill chain.
This white paper describes a structured approach toward the formation of a government security operations center (SOC) that enables organizations to integrate this capability into their overall Information Security Management System (ISMS) and align with many of the requirements introduced by ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
The theft of credit card data continues to grow at an alarming rate. It is costly to credit card companies and merchants, and it undermines consumer confidence. The Payment Card Industry has developed the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which includes 12 requirements for protecting cardholder data. Despite substantial investments made in securing their networks, organizations are realizing that being PCI compliant does not mean an enterprise is protected against advanced cyberattacks.
This paper explores a combination of ongoing and emerging factors that are exposing a variety of deficiencies with current firewall designs. These issues and flaws are then used to establish the criteria that define the ideal solution: a next-generation firewall that incorporates application inspection at its core.
