Attackers and malware are increasingly relying on a common set of tools to compromise identities and spread within a network. Tools like Mimikatz accompanied with common administrator tools like PsExec and WMI have become a standard part of an attacker’s arsenal to turn a single machine compromise into a full network breach. In this webinar we will take a look at why some of these tools are traditionally difficult to control, and introduce new countermeasures that let you fight back. In this webinar we will cover:
- An analysis of recent malware and attacks and the tools they used to spread through the network.
- A closer look at the underlying protocols supporting these tools, and the traditional challenges to controlling them.
- Introduce new controls that allow organizations to control NTLM in real-time, block pass-the-hash techniques, and adaptively control the use of NTLM in the network.
- How to gain visibility into PsExec, WMI, and RPC in general and how to create controls t

Passed on May 9, 2014, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) legislation requires federal agencies to report all expenditures—grants, loans, and contracts—in order to provide American citizens and policy makers better visibility into federal spending. At first glance, new federal requirements— which are scheduled to go in effect May 2017—can seem like imposed obligations with unknown benefits to the implementers. However, wise agencies and early adopters recognize how to transform this new compliance obligation into an opportunity to advance their federal agency by becoming more data driven. The Federal Government maintains vast amounts of data, and the DATA Act establishes data standards and sharing protocols that will help agencies exploit the benefits of data mining and analytics.

The shift to SaaS is gaining momentum and there are clear business benefits that can be derived. To optimise success, transformation strategies need to encompass all elements of people, processes, technology and organisational design. Adopting SaaS technologies drives significant change to the way organisations operate – from business processes to support model design and company culture. The implications of cloud adoption and technical challenges such as integrations, data migration and configuration must be fully understood and addressed from the outset.
Can your organization afford to wait until after an attack happens to protect your users and your data?
Perimeter security provides visibility and control for employee activity only when employees remain on a corporate network. What about roaming users who bypass the VPN? Or employees working in cloud applications?
Web gateways only protect employees from threats over web ports 80 and 443. Today’s security must provide comprehensive protection across all ports and protocols to fill the gaps in the security stack.
Hear from Eric Ahlm, Research Director at Gartner and Meg Diaz, Head of Product Marketing for Cisco Umbrella. Eric and Meg will address the challenges companies face as they compare modern convenience with the known risks of relinquishing visibility and control, especially as more sensitive data moves to the cloud.
Join us for the guidance you need to stay ahead of the curve in 2018. We’ll discuss the right answer for protecting data in the digital age.
Social and technological changes are transforming the nature of network traffic, raising network costs and performance issues. Learn how to proactively manage the WAN as new Web protocols, consumer and corporate video and cloud-delivered applications become mainstream.
Advanced evasion techniques, or AETs, are delivery mechanisms used to disguise advanced persistent threats (APTs) and permit them to slip through network security undetected.
AETs work by splitting up malicious payloads into smaller pieces, disguising them, and delivering them simultaneously across multiple and rarely used protocols. Once inside, AETs reassemble to unleash malware and continue an APT attack.

The increased mobility of the workforce is changing the way we work. Business users want the flexibility to share and collaborate on content that drives their business while IT needs to ensure the security of that data, no matter where it goes. An effective enterprise collaboration solution must consider people, processes and technologies to be effective, but where to begin?
This comprehensive Buyer’s Guide offers guidance on how to develop your organization’s requirements with regard to:
• Risk management – avoiding data breaches and loss of information that can result in non-compliance
• Business productivity - allowing for secure collaboration while enabling teams to work anywhere on any device
• IT efficiency - supporting the full breadth of external business content requirements while integrating with existing applications and protocols
In order to meet the challenges presented by the use of mobile apps and cloud services in the enterprise, a new generation of identity protocols has been developed.
OpenID Connect 1.0 uses the same building blocks as the modern application architectures and APIs it secures—REST and JSON.
This allows it to profile and extend OAuth 2.0 to add an identity layer—creating a singular, cohesive framework that promises to secure APIs, mobile native applications and browser applications.
This paper introduces OpenID Connect (Connect), detailing its features and its application in enterprise use cases.
The recent economic downturn and corporate scandals compounded concerns of corporate accountability and confidence in U.S businesses. To improve shareholder confidence in management’s ability to self-govern, the Federal Government implemented strict regulatory protocols to help restore accountability and improve public as well as shareholder confidence. The primary example of course is the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 which sought lasting eradication of corporate corruption by implementing specific controls across key financial business processes.
Access management products and services have matured in single sign-on protocols and user authentication, and technical differentiators include adaptive access capabilities, as well as ease and breadth of target system enablement. Among new purchases, demand for IAM as a service continues to grow.

The demand for (and benefits of) web-based interfaces combined with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has exposed inefficiencies inherent in the browser, the network and its protocols, and the data center. These inefficiencies create performance problems for applications that continue to be magnified by emerging technologies like Web 2.0 and SOA. This White Paper details how F5's approach to Application Delivery Networking eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in browsers, in the network, and in the data.
Across organizations from all sectors, the network is becoming more integral to daily operations. This is acutely felt by public sector organizations in the United States, namely federal, state, and local governmental organizations. Public sector organizations contend with the challenge of ensuring the security of highly sensitive data on the network in the midst of uncertain budgets and, in many cases, outdated infrastructure. At the same time, many public sector organizations grapple with a complex web of compliance protocols that must be supported on the network. This Analyst Connection explores the need for network infrastructure upgrades that include "foundational security."

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.

Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths. With so many players and data sources, today’s information is partial, fragmented, and often not actionable. We don’t have the data to understand what’s happening, to adjust policy, and to motivate physicians and patients to change their behaviors.
Better data and analytics can help develop better treatment protocols, both for pain in the first place and for remediation when patients are becoming dependent on the drugs.
