"Remote access is important and growing, but how secure is it? IDC Research surveyed more than 300 IT professionals to gain insight into the specific threats and challenges faced by providing access to employees and third parties.
Read this report to learn about:
-How secure remote access really is
-The complexity faced in implementing remote access
-What happens when companies don’t have an access security solution
-Why businesses must pivot from the common security mantra of “trust but verify” to “verify and never trust” in the new threat landscape
"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
The moats and castle approach is an antiquated, yet a common way, of protecting the enterprise network. This paper describes a new way to protect the enterprise which hides applications from the Internet, outside of the firewall, with zero open ports and a minimal attack surface.
IT complexity has rapidly grown with more applications, users, and infrastructure needed to service the enterprise. Traditional remote access models weren’t built for business models of today and are unable to keep up with the pace of change. Read this paper to understand how remote access can be redefined to remove the complexity, meet end-user expectation and mitigate network security risks.
"Traditional remote access technologies—like VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—provide access in much the same way they did 20 years ago. However, new and growing business realities—like a growing mobile and distributed workforce—are forcing enterprises to take a different approach to address the complexity and security challenges that traditional access technologies present.

"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

With the constant drumbeat of news reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of the Domain Name System (DNS), and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number.
Cybercriminals are evolving. Increasingly, they are capitalizing on the open and unprotected nature of the Domain Name System (DNS) to launch damaging phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. How are you proactively protecting your network and users from these targeted threats? Here are five things to ask yourself as you consider a DNS security solution for your company.
It’s likely not a matter of if, but when your company will fall prey to targeted attack involving malware, ransomware, data exfiltration, or phishing. In fact, 70% of organizations reported a security incident that negatively impacted their business in the past year. Learn more about the realities of cybercrime in today’s hyperconnected world.
The cyber threat landscape is dynamic and accelerating. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a vulnerability in many organizations’ defenses that malicious actors are increasingly exploiting. The following DNS best practices, when coupled with an enterprise threat protection service, will aid you in identifying, blocking, and mitigating targeted threats such as malware, phishing, ransomware, and data exfiltration.
"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. "
"A zero trust security and access model is the solution: Every machine, user, and server should be untrusted until proven otherwise. But how do you achieve zero trust?
Read this white paper authored by Akamai’s CTO, Charlie Gero, to learn how to transition to a perimeter-less world in an incredibly easy way, with steps including:

Companies are pursuing digital transformation. The goal is to improve customer value, operate with greater efficiency and agility, and increase innovation. But as companies leverage new workflows, security has not kept pace, and cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated. This white paper describes a security paradigm for today’s hostile environment: zero trust.
As easy as it is to get swept up by the hype surrounding big data, it’s just as easy for organizations to become discouraged by the challenges they encounter while implementing a big data initiative. Concerns regarding big data skill sets (and the lack thereof), security, the unpredictability of data, unsustainable costs, and the need to make a business case can bring a big data initiative to a screeching halt.
However, given big data’s power to transform business, it’s critical that organizations overcome these challenges and realize the value of big data.

Companies are facing massive cyber security challenges – many of which are rooted in the endpoint. In fact, according to IDC, 70% of successful breaches begin at the endpoint. If you are a Kaspersky Lab customer, and still have breaches in your endpoint security, then something isn’t working. Perhaps you’re struggling to prevent advanced attacks, or your security team may be burdened by maintaining overly complex policies. You and your end users may even be facing performance issues.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, then your endpoint security products may actually be creating more problems than they solve. Ask these questions and find out for yourself.

Email. You use it constantly. And it’s the number-one application to keep your organization functioning, lines of communication flowing, and productivity seamless. Organizations need email to stay up-and running all the time. After all, it’s supposed to just work, right?
This is where trouble often sets in. Cybercriminals use email constantly, too. It’s the number-one vector used to initiate attacks like malware delivery (think ransomware), impersonations and phishing attacks. In fact, almost 90% of organizations* have seen the volume of phishing attacks either rise or stay the same over the past 12 months. Internal threats have also been on the rise: Most organizations have encountered internal threats driven by careless employees (88%), compromised accounts (80%) or malicious insiders (70%) over the last year.
