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.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
Malicious botnets present multiple challenges to enterprises — some threaten security, and others merely impact performance or web analytics. A growing concern in the bot environment is the practice of credential stuffing, which capitalizes on both a bot’s ability to automate repeat attempts and the growing number of online accounts held by a single user. As bot technologies have evolved, so have their methods of evading detection. This report explains how the credential stuffing exploit challenges typical bot management strategies, and calls for a more comprehensive approach.
The Cisco 2017 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research.
This research can help your organisation respond effectively to today’s rapidly evolving and sophisticated threats.
IT Leaders See security as barrier to enabling employees. However with new Business assurance technology you are able to give Continuity, Agility, and Governance. With Blue Coat you can deliver business continuity by protecting against threats and data loss, extend protection and policy to users in any location on any device ,safely deploy and consume all types of applications, align IT infrastructure with business priorities to assure and accelerate user experience across the extended enterprise and make risk management tradeoffs and enforce compliance.
This paper outlines the discrete layers and levels of a world-class security organisation and programme, and how organisations can take advantage of services from SecureWorks to support their progress toward worldclass status.
This paper takes an in-depth look at the true costs — both short and long term — of a data breach, and provides steps and tips that executive teams and security leaders can use to determine and reduce the true cost of a data breach.
This paper explores why the older “all or nothing” kind of relationship between business organisations and information security services providers (ISSPs) is giving way to a hybrid model that security professionals can leverage to augment their operations and effectiveness.
To ensure that “quasi-insiders” or third parties do not contribute to your enterprise’s attack vector, it’s imperative to develop a third-party governance process to mitigate risk. Read on to find out how.
In this white paper we will discover what the evolving path ahead for security leaders looks like, the importance of communication from top to bottom, focusing on how proactive measures can stop threat actors from derailing businesses, and how building a security architecture that protects the most critical assets will support the overall goals of an organisation.
The included Framework for Inquiry is a non-prescriptive exercise that can help boards and management craft a replicable reporting template for reviewing risk levels, measuring operational effectiveness, and prioritizing initiatives over time.
Privileged Access Management is an imperative to addressing PCI compliance. Yet its importance extends beyond just meeting PCI compliance requirements as it allows an organization to improve its overall security posture against today’s external and internal threats.
CA Privileged Access Manager provides an effective way to implement privileged access management in support of PCI compliance and other security needs.

This paper describes how malware is evolving, how it functions, and how it can be identified, neutralized, and blocked by what we refer to as cloud generation malware analysis, which is available as a robust enterprise cloud service. Let’s start with how the blizzard of advanced malware alarms is affecting IT security teams.

This paper provides a brief recap of the functionality provided by web proxies, why proxy architecture is still a vital building block for a comprehensive web defense, and how web proxies can work with other solutions such as next-gen firewall (NGFW) to deepen the organization’s defenses against advanced web-based threats.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction.
But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.

The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defences with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.
