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...
Ransomware, regulations, botnets, information sharing and policing strategies were just some of the topics that dominated the "International Conference on Big Data in Cyber Security" hosted by Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.
For years, Wade Baker was one of the main forces behind the industry's most noted data breach investigations report. Now, as vice president of strategy and analytics at ThreatConnect, he has the chance to practice the lessons he's learned, as he explains in this video interview.
Organizations can apply user behavioral analytics - the practice of reacting to how people behave in the information security realm - to better spot and block data breaches, says Fortscale's Kurt Stammberger.
Phil Reitinger, president of the Global Cyber Alliance, wants to make one thing clear: This new group is not a coalition of the willing; it's a coalition of the angry. How, then, does the alliance plan to channel its powerful energy? Find out in this video interview.
As national security and defense threats become more asymmetrical and complex, intelligence organizations and agencies are challenged to respond more efficiently and precisely. With shrinking budgets and limited resources, these agencies need a solution that can help them accelerate the data-to-decision process, so...
