The Cisco 2016 Annual Security Report—which presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research—highlights the challenges that defenders face in detecting and blocking attackers who employ a rich and ever-changing arsenal of tools. The report also includes research from external experts, such as Level 3 Threat Research Labs, to help shed more light on current threat trends.
We take a close look at data compiled by Cisco researchers to show changes over time, provide insights on what this data means, and explain how security professionals should respond to threats.

It feels as if these folks have been around forever. They started life as a SIEM with a heavy emphasis on log management. Today they are all that plus a solid suite of next-generation attributes. They have many of the attributes of next-gen SIEMs: artificial intelligence, sophisticated log correlation, sophisticated pattern recognition and behavioral analysis. Their strength is, as it always has been, log management. But “log management” has taken on an entirely new dimension with this product. As is absolutely necessary today, it has the intelligence to analyze, correlate and make sense of huge amounts of data.

This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for McAfee’s inclusion.
This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative information is available at www.nsslabs.com.
Security and risk management leaders should know that while IDPSs are being absorbed by firewall placements at the perimeter, they give the best protection. They're also responding to pressure from uptake of other threat defense solutions, and providing credible internal and cloud placement options.
The Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is an overarching philosophy for implementing better data centers. The most basic way to think about an SDDC is as a combination of virtualized computing resources, plus software-defined storage and networking. In addition, SDDC often includes overarching security aspects: in other words, SDDC abstracts and automates all the compute, storage and networking aspects that are traditionally physical, and it can put that automation and abstraction to use in enhancing security.
Das war ein heißer Winter für die Cyber-Sicherheit! Im vergangenen Herbst betrat Cyber-Sicherheit ernsthaft politisches Territorium. In den USA gab es Angriffe auf Gruppierungen, die mit beiden großen politischen Parteien in Verbindung stehen, was auf Beeinflussungsversuche auf die US-Präsidentschaftswahl hinweist. Das Problem wurde auch bei einer der Präsidentschaftsdebatten aufgegriffen, als einer der Moderatoren fragte: „Unsere Institutionen werden mit Cyber-Attacken angegriffen und unsere Geheimnisse gestohlen. Daher stellt sich mir die Frage: Wer steckt dahinter? Und wie können wir uns zur Wehr setzen?“
Die Nutzung von Cloud Computing-Services nimmt weiterhin stark zu, da Unternehmen ihre Geschäftsanwendungen und Daten zu Cloud-basierten Software-, Plattformund Infrastrukturdiensten migrieren. Gartner geht davon aus, dass die Ausgaben für öffentliche Cloud-Dienste im Jahr 2017 um 18 % steigen und bis 2020 mehr als 50 % der IT-Ausgaben in Zusammenhang mit der Cloud-Implementierung stehen werden.
Deloitte Global sagt voraus, dass bis Ende des Jahres 2022 mehr als die Hälfte aller IT-Ausgaben auf IT-as-a-Service-Anbieter entfallen werden. Bei der Frage nach den größten Herausforderungen bei der Cloud-Absicherung nannten in der 2016er Ausgabe dieser Umfrage 56 % der befragten Sicherheitsexperten den unzureichenden Zugriff auf die erforderlichen Daten für die Reaktion auf Zwischenfälle sowie für forensische Analysen. 62 % gaben an, dass sie über nicht autorisierte Zugriffe von Außenstehenden besorgt sind, und 59 % machten sich Sorgen über andere Cloud-Mandanten. Von den 10 %, die eine Ko
