2016 was a big year for cybersecurity news, most of it not terribly encouraging. Still, the year did present the cybersecurity industry with several teachable moments that I believe all security professionals should heed as we move into a new year.
C-Levels da Palo Alto Networks afirmam na RSA Conference que estratégias de segurança precisam ser pautadas em visibilidade e apontam a integração de tecnologias como a melhor aliada no combate ao cibercrime
A tremendous amount of healthcare data will be moved to the Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure clouds for either private or public use in 2017. It makes sense, because hospital leaders are of the mindset that they prefer to be in the business of treating patients, rather than managing data centers.
Security platforms with open application programming interfaces (APIs) are set to turn the business model for the information security on its head, according to Mark McLaughlin, president and CEO of Palo Alto Networks.
Even the Most Advanced Malware Analysis Environment could potentially be Circumvented by a Sufficiently Advanced Attacker. From a technology perspective, it has never been a better time to be in the cyberattack business. Thanks to the common availability of attack tools in the underground marketplace, today’s adversaries don’t require the technical know-how to develop malware.
Hackers have probably had a harder time slipping past your security software, thanks to an alliance between some of the top vendors in the industry. The Cyber Threat Alliance, a group of security firms that often compete, says its efforts to share intelligence on the latest hacking threats have been paying off.
HAs-a-service offerings for things such as DDoS and malware -- including ransomware -- via exploit kits has seriously lowered the bar for entry into the criminal market. Hackers no longer need to have sophisticated skills in order to gain entry into the world of cybercrime. Scott Simkin weighs in.
As high-profile data breaches continue to make news headlines, expectations concerning the security of data continue to rise. Given the trend surrounding new privacy- and cybersecurity-related laws around the world that mandate personal data breach and security incident notification – including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and Network and Information Security Directive, respectively – it’s now critical for organizations, particularly those with global operations, to maintain a level of compliance that combines productivity and data security.
The Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) consortium founded by security vendors Fortinet, Intel Security, Palo Alto Networks, and Symantec, today announced that it is now officially a nonprofit trade association and that Michael Daniel, the former cybersecurity coordinator and special assistant to President Barack Obama, will serve as the CTA's first president.
PAN-OS 8.0 adds over 70 features to the Next-Generation Security Platform, enabling customers to safely embrace the cloud; prevent successful cyberattacks with high performance across network, endpoint and cloud environments.
Palo Alto identifies five areas of innovation within a wide-ranging series of announcements, although the most exciting appear to be around the expansion of threat protection capabilities, including credential theft protection.
Alguns grandes atores dos mercados de Segurança e Internet de Coisas, incluindo a IBM, a Symantec, a Nokia e a At&T estão unindo forças para resolver problemas que tornam a IoT vulnerável em muitas áreas.
A new IoT Cybersecurity Alliance formed by AT&T, IBM, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec, and Trustonic promises to help solve one of the most critical elements of the Internet of Things (IoT) — security. The group says its goal is to work on IoT security standards as well as raise awareness about the topic.
The IoT Cybersecurity Alliance, formed Wednesday, also includes IBM, Symantec, Palo Alto Networks, and mobile security company Trustonic. The group said it won’t set standards but will conduct research, educate consumers and businesses, and influence standards and policies.
A group of businesses from across the IoT value chain have formed the IoT Cybersecurity Alliance, aiming to use their combined expertise to allay business concerns about the Internet of Things and solve its security challenges.
A new group consisting of AT&T, IBM, Nokia, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec and Trustonic have formed the IoT Cybersecurity Alliance with the aim of developing best practices to battle IoT security threats that have accelerated in the past year.
