As the threat landscape evolves, so must our security controls and countermeasures. Recent research from F5 Labs revealed that applications are the initial targets in the majority of breaches, suggesting that any app can be an attack vector. Cybercriminals are moving their tactics further up the stack using sophisticated application-layer exploits, as well as an emerging wave of automated, bot, and IoTbased threats that are quite capable of evading simple signature or reputation-based detection. Yet, the majority of WAFs on the market today have remained largely unchanged, leaving the applayer exposed, unable to proactively monitor and protect against evolving attack vectors.

"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy. One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "

There is no question that security attacks targeting your organization will continue to grow and evolve. The question is, how can you respond to malware and other risks without unnecessarily constraining your workforce? How can you get beyond the fear and anxiety that leads to excessive prohibition, prevention, blocking, and excluding – so that you can use security technology to both protect and empower people? The answer is with a multi-layered defense – one that uses advanced security technologies and sophisticated operational practices in combination to cover the full spectrum of threat vectors. This solution brief explores the growing importance of multi-layered defense in today’s fast-changing web environment, and key considerations in implementing an effective multi-layered defense strategy.

Despite increased awareness and focus on defending against targeted attacks from both business and security leaders, organizations continue to be breached and suffer the consequences. Many of today’s security investments are simply not aligned to defend against these targeted threat vectors. Advanced threat detection and response should not be a point solution but rather a combination of technologies and core competencies. Detecting and responding to advanced threats should involve tight integration of multiple security technologies, network analysis and visibility (NAV) tools, the ability to automatically generate content such as security rules and signatures, context on attacker history, and overall customization and flexibility to ensure that the solution is fine-tuned for your specific IT environment.

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done. This paper outlines: The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks; What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats; A reimagined approach to IT security.

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone. These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates. This white paper highlights: Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks; Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors; How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust. This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including: Value of your data; Low risk and high returns for criminals; Why SMBs are easier targets.

Whether they work for an up-and-coming startup or an industry giant, security response teams are under siege as never before. Today's cyber attacks are sophisticated, relentless, and devastating, costing U.S. businesses $8.9 million a year each on average. Attacking in multiple stages across multiple vectors, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and other sophisticated attacks easily evade signature-based detection and other traditional defenses. Thiswhite paper describes: The 10 most common mistakes, strategic and technical, that incident response teams make; The effect of these mistakes and how to avoid them with a well-defined incident response plan.

If information is the lifeblood of today's digital economy, data centers are the heart. These mini-metropolises of silicon, metal, and cable are as essential to modern business as steel, motors, and coal were to the last great industrial revolution. In addition to their vital role in most business processes, data centers are the building blocks of emerging trends such as Big Data, global collaboration, and even bring-your-own-device (BYOD). The white paper describes: The widening gap between the offensive capabilities of today's cyber attackers and the weak traditional defenses deployed in most data centers; How organizations can better protect data centers.

System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.
