Belgian banking and insurance group, KBC, uses a Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ to simplify and scale the connection of its data center network to a range of security, monitoring and forensics tools, each operated by different departments within IT operations.
As enterprises battle to keep pace with online traffic growth by throttling up network speeds, they are beginning to lose the war on cybercrime. Why? Because security tools are limited in how much traffic they can intelligently process. Further, these same security devices need to take on increasingly sophisticated functions to combat evermore advanced and persistent cyber attacks. As a consequence, many existing security applications will be rendered ineffective in the very near future. Enter metadata, the new security super power.
In short, an organisation’s ability to grab information off the wire and not be limited to sending log files—can dramatically improve its security posture. And with the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform, users can see 100 percent of every traffic packet sent and received as well as deliver relevant, summarized information to SIEMs and collectors.
Despite a plethora of network security and monitoring tools, detecting and responding to cyberthreats are increasingly challenging tasks. The very nature of corporate networks and the way in which security tools are deployed put IT teams at a clear disadvantage. The corporate network is no longer a static, well‐defined entity that can be adequately protected with an armory of perimeter‐based security tools. Instead, it’s an amorphous, dynamic entity that extends well beyond the four walls of the data center. Technologies such as cloud computing, virtualization, and mobile computing add to the complexity.
Meanwhile, IT teams must shoehorn security tools into the network infrastructure and hope that their limited view of traffic will be enough to expose the low‐and‐slow activity that’s characteristic of advanced threats. But as long as there are blind spots on the network, there’s a chance that malicious activity is going undetected. IT organizations need a new approach that enables visibility across the entire IT infrastructure, including physical, virtual, and cloud environments. They need a security delivery platform.
The 2016 IT Security Priorities Study - SecureWorks delivers 5 top Tips
Okay, you've secured the perimeter of your Data Centre.
But what about those threats that infiltrate, lie dormant and then attack your critical systems from within?
Now, with micro-segmentation, you can implement fine-grained policies and network controls within each of your Data Centre components. It's an incredibly flexible and scalable approach.
And thanks to VMware NSX®, you can achieve this with your existing infrastructure, applications and security products.
The consequences of a cyber-attack can be devastating, such as loss of customer confidence, ruined reputation and costly legal ramifications. Not to mention the potential destruction of your entire business. To be fully effective, cyber security must be proactively managed and owned at board level. Not not just by the IT department. It needs to be broad in scope, and senior management needs to recognise that it’s a whole of business challenge.
Privileged Users are, without a doubt, the most dangerous cybersecurity threat as they continue to cost organizations billions in corporate losses. Additionally, the risk to your bottom line and of intellectual property theft isn’t limited to a certain industry. It happens across the board from the financial sector to energy and healthcare to the federal government. So who are Privileged Users and how are they remaining in the shadows uncontested?
This whitepaper will help identify who Privileged Users are in your organization. It will also explain why Privileged Users present a greater risk than other employees, and whether or not your organization could be at risk. Finally, it will provide you with best practices and strategies for mitigating the threat.
All networks are vulnerable because they have people using them. These are ordinary users focusing on getting their job done, not worrying about security. It is dangerous to assume that your workforce is “too smart” to avoid breaches. Understand that 94% of your employees will potentially be duped by a socially-engineered, targeted phishing scam. You can no longer afford to have just the traditional security solutions on your networks. These solutions will not offer you enough protection from within your organization. As CISO, you are going to need a new plan for dealing with Insider Threats. Your organization is at risk - get the latest report on the new wave of Insider Threats and start planning now.
