The malicious use of encryption is growing at an alarming rate, from 104 in 2014, to 13,542 as of mid-2016, according to...
Encryption keeps data confidential, but we're left unprotected from threats that may be embedded in the data. In fact, encryption actually conceals these threats and adds network performance burdens for organizations that wish to inspect encrypted traffic.
The first in a series on encryption, this technical brief...
Breach detection systems (BDS) are security products that offer timely detection of threats. When evaluating these products, customers must take into account traditional factors, such as security effectiveness, deployment options, performance and administrative capabilities.

Advanced endpoint protection (AEP) products are still relatively immature, which makes it difficult to decide whether to replace or augment existing endpoint protection (EPP). Adding to the difficulty in assessing AEP products is the fact that measuring some of their features can be complicated.
AEP products are...
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who's been tapped by U.S. president-elect Donald Trump to lead a cybersecurity corporate outreach program, runs a security consulting firm with a website that's been given a failing grade for its security.
In 2016, organizations experienced the greatest number of data breaches. A checkbox approach to security does little to help ensure protected data remains secure. Organizations must create a practical action plan to accomplish many goals, such as ensuring endpoints are secure, minimizing the risk of breaches, and...
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint against router and camera manufacturer D-Link for allegedly failing to secure its products. Experts say it's the opening salvo in what could be a long-term battle to fix IoT devices.
