Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance. Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019. While threat actors made themselves busy with challenging new victims, they ensnared targets in the old ways, using tried-and-true malspam and social engineering tactic

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded. The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Of all the industries targeted by cyber-attackers, financial services is one of the most attractive. As noted bank robber Willie Sutton once said, “Go where the money is … and go there often.” That, it seems, is what cybercriminals are doing, launching malware, Trojans, spear phishing and ransomware attacks at banks and institutions to compromise networks and gain access to valuable data.

With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets. This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.

This white paper can help you confirm that your small business or distributed enterprise needs to invest in an effective next-generation firewalls (NGFW) solution. For small businesses, the NGFW should provide an affordable and manageable entrée to advanced threat protection. In branch offices and the distributed enterprise, NGFWs should provide a detection and enforcement point, analyzing real-time threats and network traffic at scale and benefiting from an integrated and holistic view of the network of which it is a part. In both use scenarios, the NGFW should help your organization defend against targeted and persistent malware attacks, including emerging threats.

Most large organizations address network security with an army of tactical point tools like firewalls, VPN gateways, IDSs/IPSs, network proxies, malware sandboxes, web and e-mail gateways, etc. This messy array of independent technologies was adequate ten years ago, but now presents a plethora of operational, policy enforcement, and monitoring challenges. Worse yet, network security defenses are becoming less and less effective at blocking targeted and sophisticated threats and advanced malware attacks.
