Build a fundamentally more agile, efficient and secure application environment with VMware NSX network virtualization featuring Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Ethernet...
Most enterprise IT professionals agree, securing the network only at the perimeter is inadequate for today's data centers. Modern attacks can exploit a perimeter-centric defense. In this paper, we show how VMware NSX enables security that is both ubiquitous and granular by integrating security functions into the...
A very advanced and targeted cyber-espionage campaign has been active for five years, and employs stealthy malware that can penetrate air-gapped networks and exfiltrate data using multiple techniques, security researchers warn.
More than 200,000 internet-connected systems remain vulnerable to the OpenSSL vulnerability known as Heartbleed, more than two years after the flaw was publicly announced and related patches released, warns security researcher Billy Rios.
While malware may be used for an initial attack, hackers quickly begin using tools to move around networks that often don't raise suspicion. Here's what to look out for to detect a "low and slow" attack.
Today's cyber threats are increasing in volume, diversity and sophistication, rapidly outstripping the ability of point security solutions to safeguard critical data, applications and systems. Network-based security from Level 3 replaces these vulnerable point solutions with a multi-layered approach that enables us to...
A massive scan of open internet ports confirms long-held assumptions that old, insecure internet protocols never die, and in fact may still thrive, especially in Belgium, says Rapid 7 security research manager Tod Beardsley.
The maturity of the network access control (NAC) market presents organizations with a strong selection of vendors that offer evolved capabilities. Enterprises are prioritizing low-level complexity of administration, flexibility of controls, ease of integration, and competitive product pricing as the main selection...
For its next move since jettisoning storage firm Veritas and becoming a pure-play security vendor, Symantec plans to buy network and cloud security firm Blue Coat from private-equity owners Bain Capital for $4.65 billion, gaining a new CEO in the process.
With hack attacks continuing against banks, SWIFT must follow in the footsteps of other vendors - notably Microsoft - and begin offering detailed, prescriptive security guidance to its users, says Doug Gourlay of Skyport Systems.
Vietnam's TPBank says it successfully foiled more than $1 million in fraudulent transfer requests apparently initiated by the same hackers who targeted Bangladesh Bank and other SWIFT-using institutions with PDF reader malware.
The theft of $81 million from Bangladesh Bank was "part of a wider and highly adaptive campaign targeting banks," SWIFT warns its 11,000 customers. Investigators say signs point to the same attackers having hacked Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014.
Amidst finger-pointing over responsibility for the $81 million online theft from Bangladesh Bank, SWIFT has issued its first-ever information security guidance to banks, telling them that they're responsible for securing their own systems.
