As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services

Every cloud security vendor will give you impressive-sounding metrics for cloud security. But what do they really mean? Our infographic explains which metrics really matter, and what questions you need to ask to get them.
Despite momentous benefits, cloud computing has its own set of challenges that must be addressed. The primary concern that many enterprises and end users have is related to security, especially data protection and privacy and loss of control. This article discusses the several challenges associated with security for cloud-based video conferencing and how organizations can remove these barriers by adopting solutions that implement security as a key tenet.
When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities.
The NGFW should:
1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection
2. Provide complete and unified management
3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints
4. Offer comprehensive network visibility
5. Help reduce complexity and costs
6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions
7. Provide investment protection
This white paper explains this checklist in depth and provides examples of the benefits a truly effective NGFW solution can deliver.
While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterday’s signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, today’s unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. What’s the answer? A new white paper, “The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” explains machine learning (ML) technology —what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. You’ll also learn about CrowdStrike’s exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platform’s next-gen AV solution,it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.

The endpoint security market continues to expand with vendors old and new marketing their solutions as “next generation” game-changers. However, closer inspection reveals that many new solutions have been built on old platforms, many of which still rely heavily on signature-based detection and obsolete architecture. Navigating this crowded vendor landscape can be challenging — how does the buyer find the true next-generation protection today’s targeted, advanced threats demand?
A new white paper, “The Five Essential Elements of Next -Generation Endpoint Protection,” offers guidance on how to see through the hype and understand the critical must-have elements that meet true next-generation criteria and set a new standard in EPP.

In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,
