The Domain Name System is crucial to the functioning of the internet, but largely taken for granted - until it breaks. In an audio interview, Cricket Liu of Infoblox discusses how DNS providers must improve security.
While tremendous effort, resources, and technology are applied to securing the perimeter of the data center, very little thought or effort is dedicated to security inside the data center. Once perimeter firewalls are breached, malicious attacks are generally able to propagate laterally inside the data center with...
Right now, it is almost certain that more than 25% of the third-party apps connected to your corporate environment are considered "high-risk." When there is no longer an identifiable network perimeter, securing your company's IP can be a lot of pressure.
That's where Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) come in. A...
Cisco has patched another zero-day flaw stemming from the Shadow Brokers' leak of Equation Group tools and attack code. The technology giant warns that attackers have been exploiting the vulnerability.
All in the family: A "sophisticated attacker" alert from US-CERT, urging enterprises to lock down their networking gear, was triggered by the leak of exploit tools - targeting, in part, U.S.-built networking gear - that may have been tied to the NSA.
Adversaries are outsmarting enterprise security strategies by exploiting the foundation of online security. Cyberthreats are becoming more complex and harder to detect. Intel predicts the next big hacker marketplace to be in the sale of digital certificates, which are already selling for more than $1,000 each in...
Data centers are difficult to defend, and securing the perimeter is important but of little consequence if attackers get inside. But there are ways to lock down data centers, former White House strategist Nathaniel Gleicher explains in this interview.
In an interview, Internet pioneer Vint Cerf says he sees a secure future for the network of networks he helped create four decades ago as the co-developer of TCP/IP, the protocol that facilitates internet communications.
Cisco has begun releasing updates for all ASA devices to patch them against a buffer overflow vulnerability that was targeted by leaked Equation Group attack tools. Attackers can exploit the flaw to gain remote control of ASA devices.
If leading intelligence agencies can seemingly hack a wide variety of IT gear, what hope is there for enterprise security? Experts describe how organizations should respond to the recent dump of attack tools from the Equation Group, which is widely believed to be tied to the NSA.
In this video interview, Global Cyber Alliance CEO Phil Reitinger explains how the vastness and complexity of the internet creates cyber vulnerabilities, but one day those same characteristics, if used properly, could mitigate cyber threats.
The Equation Group leak revealed a zero-day flaw in Cisco's firewall software - a patch is being prepped - as well as a vulnerability in Fortinet's software that's since been patched. Has the U.S. government long known about the flaws?
This brief explains why it's time to take the next step toward the software-defined data center, and apply network virtualization and micro-segmentation to the network. It empowers infrastructure architects to react quickly to prevent breaches.
