Every day, companies generate mountains of data that are critical to their business. With that data comes a clear challenge: How do you protect exabytes of data that's strewn across global data centers, computer rooms, remote offices, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, as well as hosted by many different cloud providers, without choking business agility, employee productivity, and customer experience? The solution lies not in throwing more technology at the network, but in taking specific steps to identify malicious actions and respond to them in order to fix the issue, a process known as operationalizing security.

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 new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

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.

Matthew Coy, Safelite’s Vice President of Information Technology, is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s IT infrastructure, including selecting, administering, and supporting technology products. The company handles personally identifiable information, including credit card information and insurance data collected from several sources, and must comply with insurance industry regulations and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Safelite is the target of constant external attacks. The organization experienced ongoing security issues stemming from infected software, drivebys and other malicious downloads. According to Matthew, “A lot of malware and email viruses were making it through the environment, all bypassing our email security and AV.” Not only were the security controls ineffective, the previous AV platform required nearly 150 hours per week to manage. Matthew knew Safelite needed to make a change, and fast. Having worked with Cylance® at two previous companies, he was confident CylancePROTECT® could significantly improve Safelite’s endpoint security. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

Phoenix Children’s CISO, Daniel Shuler, and its IT security team are responsible for protecting 5,000 endpoints in the hospital and across more than 20 clinics in the region. Endpoints include physician and staff laptops and desktops, nursing stations, servers, Windows-based clinical devices, credit card payment processors, and point-of-sale terminals. These endpoints are used to store and/or process personal health information (PHI), and payment and credit card information. They must comply with HIPAA for PHI and voluntarily comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) for credit card data. The IT security team’s existing industry-leading AV solution claimed to provide visibility into malicious activity aimed at the endpoints. It continuously reported all endpoints were safe, sound, and secure. This caused Daniel to be suspicious. He knew from experience that such low levels of endpoint malicious activity was highly unlikely. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

Increasingly complex networks, require more than a one-size-fitsall approach to ensuring adequate performance and data integrity. In addition to the garden-variety performance issues such as slow applications, increased bandwidth requirements, and lack of visibility into cloud resources, there is also the strong likelihood of a malicious attack. While many security solutions like firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDS) work to prevent security incidents, none are 100 percent effective. However, there are proactive measures that any IT team can implement now that can help ensure that a successful breach is found quickly, effectively remediated, and that evidential data is available in the event of civil and/or criminal proceedings.

Many security-minded organizations utilize code signing to provide an additional layer of security and authenticity for their software and files. Code signing is carried out using a type of digital certificate known as a code-signing certificate. The process of code signing validates the authenticity of legitimate software by confirming that an application is from the organization who signed it. While code-signing certificates can offer more security, they can also live an unintended secret life providing cover for attack groups, such as the Suckfly APT group. In late 2015, Symantec identified suspicious activity involving a hacking tool used in a malicious way against one of our customers. Normally, this is considered a low-level alert, however, the hacktool had an unusual characteristic not typically seen with this type of file; it was signed with a valid code-signing certificate. Download this whitepaper to find out more about how you can protect your business from such threats.

System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

With breaches today often going undetected for months or years, many organizations must now accept the very real possibility that intruders have already compromised their systems, regardless of the organization’s security posture. Today, compromises are measured in minutes and the speed of response is measured in days. Enterprises the world over are realizing that to close the gap, they need to evolve their security operations from being a largely reactive unit (waiting for alerts that indicate a threat) to being proactively on the hunt for new attacks that have evaded detection. When an incident does occur, the speed of your response will dictate the extent to which you can minimize the impact. In the case of a malicious attack, it takes on average over 7 months to identify a breach, and nearly two and a half additional months to contain the incident. Every second counts, and while the clock is ticking, the cost of the breach is rapidly increasing as well. Breaches that take over 3
