Collective Offense Calls for Collective Defense: A Reality Check for Cybersecurity Decision Makers  > Download Whitepaper
Collective defense is the future of cybersecurity. As the sophistication, frequency, and speed of cyber attacks increase, traditional methods of defense are falling short. Companies find themselves with too many tools, staff shortages, and a passive rather than proactive security approach.

Hackers have goals. Whether the goal is to steal data, earn financial rewards, manipulate information, or cause physical destruction, attackers don’t limit themselves to a direct attack on their target victim. Instead, they often use their imaginations and go after the digital supply chain of their targets as well. Hackers can do this without increasing the need for technical sophistication, and without risking or compromising the success of their campaigns.

Privileged Access Threat Report 2019  > Download Whitepaper
The world is an uncertain place. Particularly for cyber security professionals, many of whom have learned the hard way that they can’t rest on their laurels. New technologies and fresh threats are constantly emerging, and these threats come from both outside and within organizations. In our 2019 privileged access threat research, we discovered that almost two thirds of respondents (64%) think it is likely they’ve suffered a breach due to employee access, while 58% say the same about vendors.

2019 DATA EXPOSURE REPORT  > Download Whitepaper
Most organizations have some kind of data loss prevention strategy in place. However, that strategy typically ignores one of the greatest threats to data: the threat posed by employees. In today’s progressive workplaces, people and data are on the move like never before. Job tenure is declining and people are switching jobs far more frequently. At the same time, leaders want to empower employees to be creative, innovative and collaborative. To do this, they are granting their employees access to easy-to-use data-sharing platforms and mechanisms known for speeding productivity. The challenge is, these tools perhaps make it too easy to move data around. In a matter of seconds, valuable data can be transferred to a private cloud or removable media and whisked out the door.

2019 Cybersecurity Trends: Security is on the move  > Download Whitepaper
It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data. Applications that previously resided on-premises are also on the move, as the volume of roaming workers continues to rise. Branch offices are adopting direct internet access, which is forcing a discussion on how to extend security to protect the edge. With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape.

Start with Attack Surface Visibility for Better Cybersecurity  > Download Whitepaper
Attackers Understand Your Attack Surface. Do You? Attackers look for the path of least resistance in your attack surface so that they can break into your organization’s high-value digital assets. They are looking for entry points that your organization doesn’t see; this is your “shadow risk.” To eliminate your shadow risk, you need ongoing visibility of your full attack surface, and there’s only one proven way to get that: perform reconnaissance across your entire IT ecosystem, adopting an outside-in approach.

Today’s most successful enterprises are instrumenting and digitizing virtually every aspect of their business. This change is dramatically increasing the value and volume of sensitive data that must be protected.

Reducing Third Party Risk Using Passive DNS Data  > Download Whitepaper
Today, it’s hard to think of an organization that isn’t outsourcing at least one part of its business to a third party. As a result, business risk is directly influenced by the security posture of each of their partners, customers, supply chain, and other related third party businesses. It is this reliance on third parties that attackers take advantage of – exploiting vulnerabilities in common software or systems used in almost every modern organization.

Strained Relationships Between Security And IT Ops Teams Leave Businesses At Risk  > Download Whitepaper
IT leaders today face pressure from all sides. They must maintain compliance with an evolving set of regulations, track and secure data across devices, and manage a dynamic inventory of physical and virtual assets, all while fulfilling an executive mandate to make technology an enabler for growth. To cope with this pressure, many have invested in a number of point solutions. However, these solutions often operate in silos, straining organizational alignment and inhibiting the visibility and control needed to protect the environment.
