2018 NSS Labs SD-WAN Group Test
In this report, NSS Labs simulated an enterprise network that has branches connected to a data center through two links: an MPLS line and a commercial broadband connection. They reviewed a select number of vendors, testing their throughput performance and security effectiveness. Read the report and learn how Forcepoint delivers SD-WAN with enterprise scale and security to match your needs of distributed networks.
Virtualization is moving to the mainstream and may soon be overtaking non-virtualized environments as a method for deploying applications. Does this broad adoption of virtualization, though, make network security easier or more difficult to achieve? While responses to this question are still highly varied, one thing is certain: most companies still have no clear and definite security policy for their virtual environments.
Evaluator Group worked with HP to assess the features, performance and enterprise capabilities of the HP StoreOnce B6200 Backup system. HP labs and equipment were utilized with testing under the direction of on-site evaluator group personnel.
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.
Today's confidentiality and privacy requirements drive organizations of all sizes and industries to secure sensitive data in email. Often particular types of data need to be encrypted, such as credit card numbers, intellectual property, or client information. Organizations also need to protect confidential emails for particular groups, such as executive management, human resources or legal departments.
Many organizations are turning to policy-based encryption to meet their encryption needs because it automatically encrypts data using content filtering rules that identify types of content or email for particular groups. Encryption is applied when the rules are triggered. With policy-based encryption, organizations avoid relying on individual users to secure important content.
Alfred Ashley Group helps small businesses overcome the daunting prospect of buying, installing, and managing computer and telephone system solutions. Building in best-in-class and cost-effective security is vital for meeting customer expectations and achieving the company's revenue and profit goals.
Hosted, or "in-the-cloud", messaging security capabilities are becoming increasingly
popular with organizations of all sizes. Some have already adopted hosted services, while
others are becoming more receptive to the notion of using third party services to manage
their security infrastructure than they were just a year ago. Particularly driven by the
current economic recession, decision makers are realizing that hosted email security can
provide a cost-effective solution while actually improving security.
All businesses face a daily bombardment of email spam that consumes valuable IT staff
time as well as end-user productivity. In addition, email is an attack vector for many
types of security threats to businesses, including phishing, viruses, spyware, and
malicious URLs. Given that all businesses are experiencing the financial pressures of a
tightening world economy, coupled with the uncertainty of any near-term recovery, small
and medium-sized business (SMB) managers are searching for ways to cut costs while
continuing to maintain a consistent level of service and protection for their businesses.
This comprehensive hosted service blocks email threats before they can touch the network, integrating powerful anti-spam and anti-phishing with award-winning antivirus and anti-spyware. Security leader Trend Micro updates and tunes the solution to keep the customer's network secure while saving valuable IT resources.
Just about anybody with an email address knows about spam and spam filters-or at least they think they do. However, it is a complex subject, with far more to it than meets the eye.
This Ferris Research white paper looks at spam: what it is, how it is sent, and how it is filtered. It unravels the complexities and gives an accessible, factual overview into the scourge of spam.
Businesses are experiencing a dramatic increase in spam and email-based attacks. These assaults not only hurt employee productivity, they consume valuable IT staff time and infrastructure resources. These threats can also expose organizations to data leaks, compliance issues and legal risks.
Trend Micro's SaaS email security solution blocks spam, viruses, phishing, and other email threats before they touch your network, helping you reclaim IT staff time, end-user productivity, bandwidth, mail server storage and cpu capacity. Optional content filtering enforces compliance and helps prevent data leaks.
West Coast Labs performed a comparison test on a range of email solutions (appliances, software, and hosted service solutions) to measure their relative spam detection rates over
a series of at least 100,000 genuine spam emails using West Coast Labs real-time spam feed.
This paper explores the move away from Web Operations 1.0 - mired in legacy tools, outdated approaches, and low expectations - and into Web Operations 2.0 where tools and procedures are built from the ground up for highly efficient, reliable, and agile operations.
Data is the lifeblood of any business, and small businesses are certainly no exception. Critical data such as email messages, financial documents, as well as project and personnel files all make up vital company information that most businesses cannot function without.

During NSS Labs’ 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS™ v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM)™. After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.

Cylance engaged SE Labs to independently assess CylancePROTECT’s ability to predict and prevent previously unknown threats. SE Labs pitted the May 2015 version of CylancePROTECT® — without a cloud connection or updates — against some of the most destructive and disruptive threats that appeared between 2016 and 2018, after the model was trained and deployed.
Opioid use grabs headlines when important celebrities
overdose. Prince is sadly the most recent. But the
problem is persistent and pervasive. The marginally
good news is that the number of opioid prescriptions
written started to decline last year. Overdose deaths,
however, continued to rise. Also in the news have been
lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies and
distributors for helping to create the astounding
oversupply of opioids, but the root causes go deeper.
Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers
and licensing boards, pharma companies and
pharmacies all have played roles. And all must work
