Zero Day Risks and the Return of Hacking Team

There are basically two kinds of threats organizations and users face today: the ones that security vendors and threat researchers know about, and those they don’t. The ones we know about get vendor patches, signatures are updated across a variety of security tools in order to detect them, and behaviors are documented in order to detect and disrupt the more sophisticated ones. People who are affected by these sorts of attacks usually either don’t have the right security tools deployed in the right places, or they aren’t practicing adequate cyber hygiene.

The Critical Need for Threat Intelligence

Information sharing is one of the most critical elements of any security strategy. Without it, security has to be painted with abroad brush when literally anything is possible. Being able to compare the device or network you are trying to protect against a set of threats that are known to be currently active is invaluable in pitting the right resources and countermeasures against the appropriate target.

Are Endpoints Integrated Into Your Network Security Strategy?

Endpoint security is the responsibility of far more than the endpoint or desktop IT team. In fact, it is required to be understood and leveraged by anyone who is responsible for the organization’s network security. These groups need better visibility, compliance, controls and response across the entire distributed network, including on and off network endpoints. More than simply protecting individual devices, a true endpoint security solution continually assesses and ensures the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of enterprise data, network resources, and information systems.
