Detecting the Invisible Part 3: "Retreat from the Breach"

Our approach to securing the enterprise has changed, and breach detection technology has been largely instrumental in this process. This report from NSS Labs is the final in a three-part series on the impact of the breach detection system (BDS).

As the breach detection market continues to mature, several points are worth noting:

The Best Place for Yesware is Nowhere

A talented security colleague came across a tweet from a company called Yesware and remarked to me that it could be construed as spear phishing with specific language for legal protection. I can see his point, but in pedantically technical language, no, this is not spear phishing. Yesware certainly could be a tool in a spear phisher’s toolbox, but that is not what it is designed for.

Is Yesware Spyware?

Detecting the Invisible Part 2: "Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends"

Our approach to securing the enterprise has changed, and breach detection technology has been largely instrumental in this process. This report from NSS Labs is the second in a three-part series on the impact of the breach detection system (BDS).

Breached? Continuous Forensic Analytics Speeds Incident Response

Over the course of the last few years, the number of publicized breaches has risen dramatically, ultimately costing some CXOs their jobs. The irony is that in many cases, the breach itself is not the cause of their dismissal, but rather it is the handling of the situation after the breach is discovered and how quickly the executives can assemble the answers. It takes considerable talent and time (often weeks or months) to work through the incident response (IR) process within most organizations.

How Does The Average Enterprise Stay On Top of The Latest Technology?

You’ve probably heard the phrase “drinking from a fire hose,” and in the security world, it has never been more applicable than it is today.

NSS Research Reveals NGFW has Strengthening Role in Enterprise

Next generation firewalls (NGFWs) have become perimeter security “table stakes” for enterprise security. Potentially the most important network security investment an enterprise can make, NGFW technology is in high demand. There is considerable differentiation within the market, in spite of the fact that it has yet to reach maturity, and new features such as integrated threat intelligence feeds, cloud forensics, automated black-list population, and sandboxing have made purchasing decisions more complex.

2015: Rethinking Defense Starts With Better Information

The past year has been rife with an alarming increase in grievous information security incidents. Breaches, widely distributed software critical vulnerabilities, and increasingly sophisticated attacks all appeared with frightening regularity. Everyone who works in information security knows it’s a tough role. Much like public utilities, no one is grateful or concerned until it doesn’t work or isn’t there. Once you have been breached, the resolution will take considerably more time and investment than implementing simple preventative investments in the first place.
