Bon nombre de propriétaires de PME pensent que cela n’arrive qu’aux autres et que leur entreprise est trop petite pour être la cible de piratages, d’attaques par rançongiciel et d’autres types de cybercriminalité. D’autres sont conscients de l’importance de la cybersécurité, mais estiment qu’ils n’ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour en faire une priorité. Ce sont là quelques-unes des raisons pour lesquelles pas moins de 90 % des PME n’ont pas établi de système de protection pour leurs données ou celles de leurs clients.
Clients are benefiting from a rapidly evolving fiber
Internet landscape and the associated competition
among providers. Choosing the right vendor from
among the many vying for your business requires careful
consideration of how each operates. Take into account,
for example, expertise and experience, breadth of services
and support and investment in infrastructure.
The need for identity protection has never been stronger. Identity theft accounted for 74 percent of all data breaches in the first half of 2017, and costs associated with cybercrime are expected to reach $6 trillion annually by 2021. Any time an employee's username and password are compromised, your business is vulnerable. Eight-character passwords that changed every 90 days worked well a decade ago, but increasingly commonplace attack methods like password cracking, phishing, or screen scraping call for a new kind of protection.
Security risks and breaches have become part of the daily landscape as companies and organizations of every size and in every vertical and industry announce that they have been compromised. In 2016 reported security breaches were up 40%, and this year is on pace to surpass that steep rise. Over the past year alone, there have been high-profile breaches in the gaming, financial services, hospitality, food service, consumer packaged goods, and retail sectors. Many of those breaches occurred due to vulnerabilities in applications and on websites. For example, this past April, the IRS announced a breach attributable to a tool designed to fetch data for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed breach world.

Law firms have received two dramatic wake-up calls about the vital importance of data
security in the last two years. First, there was the leak of 11.5 million documents from
offshore law firm Mossack Fonseca, known as the Panama Papers, which became public
Then came the massive cyberattack on prominent global law firm DLA Piper
in the summer of 2017.2
As we will explore, despite the industry’s aversion to media
coverage of such attacks, less-visible breaches involving the legal profession are being
reported worldwide in ever-increasing numbers.
The first-ever Global Digital Transformation Benefits Report is here. The report analyzes 230 customer stories and 330 data points to provide concrete evidence on digitization's disruptive potential. It examines how digital transformation has driven CapEx and OpEx savings, sustainability initiatives, equipment uptime, and other key business goals. It also includes stories from 34 of our customers, including how:
• Tata Power, an Indian power company, cut power restoration times from hours to seconds.
• New Belgium Brewing, a US beer company, cut downtime by 50%.
• Vitens, a Dutch water utility, shrank deployment times by 65%.
As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa
The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing.
Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial
results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving

We’ve arrived at the second anniversary of the Equifax breach and we now know much more about what happened due to the August 2018 release of the GAO Report. New information came out of that report that was not well-understood at the time of the breach. For example, did you know that while Equifax used a tool for network layer decryption, they had certificates nine months out of date? This lapse gave the threat actors all the time they needed to break in and exfiltrate reams of personal data. As soon as Equifax updated the certs on their decryption tools, they began to realize what happened.
On the heels of the Equifax breach, we are reminded of the importance of efficient decryption for effective threat detection. That’s more important than ever today; Ponemon Institute reports that 50% of all malware attacks utilize encryption.
During this webinar, we’ll talk about:
-How TLS/SSL encryption has become a threat vector
-Why decryption is essential to security and how to effectively pe

Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or
break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network
operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool
layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility
architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs).
EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application
visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security
risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network
operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused
on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo
