McAfee® Threat Intelligence Exchange and the McAfee Security Connected Platform can help integrate workflows and data to overcome siloed operations and shift the security model to agile, intelligent threat prevention. This paper describes three use cases to illustrate the benefits.
Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental.
Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we:
• Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach
• Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is
• Describe how to communicate its value to the business and
• Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security

Unsanctioned apps have become the norm, even in large enterprises with tight IT oversight. But when it comes to IT communication solutions, which frequently involve sensitive data, you simply cannot compromise. Read The 2015 IT Communications Buyers Guide and learn why you cannot afford to settle for a non-proven IT communications solution. This report details exactly what to look for, and also look out for, in an enterprise-grade vendor.
Dive deep into topics such as:
• Security and compliance
• Enterprise specific capabilities
• What constitutes a real mobile solution
• Selecting a trustworthy partner
• Breadth and depth of integrations
• Global support
• And much more...
Computer networks are built to facilitate the flow of communication, not stop it. Unfortunately, data packets can be manipulated to look normal yet contain an exploit. These techniques evade standard security measures and, in most cases, can deliver a malicious payload without detection. Often, these advanced evasion techniques (AETs) take advantage of rarely used protocol properties in unexpected combinations. Most network security devices are not capable of detecting them. While many pass industry tests with high ratings, those ratings are based on protection against a limited number of threats. The exact number of AETs is unknown, but it is close to hundreds of millions. To defend against AETs, your network security should incorporate seven critical features into your next gen firewall.

Networking communication protocols make it possible for the Internet to work. Unfortunately, criminals can use those trusted systems to obfuscate malicious data and penetrate your network defenses undetected.
An advanced evasion technique (AET) is a method of delivering an exploit or malicious content into a vulnerable target so that the traffic looks normal and security devices will pass it through.
By combining attacks using several protocol layers, these advanced evasions bypass most existing security solutions. Forcepoint NGFW (Next-Generation Firewall) applies sophisticated analysis techniques specifically to detect this type of attack. Download this whitepaper to find out more.
Consumers demand – no, expect – marketers to deliver highly relevant communications. Yet, daily headlines about security and privacy keep them on guard about use of their personal information. How do you reconcile the personalization privacy paradox?
Guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc.’s Fatemeh Khatibloo and Bryan Throckmorton of Acxiom will offer fresh findings on customer expectations regarding privacy and examples of how companies are building transparency and trust – and differentiating themselves – with preference centers that put more control in the hands of customers.

The Public Services Network (PSN) is a programme intended to improve communication services across the UK government by reducing the cost and complexity of digital communication across the public sector. The PSN will create one logical network, based on industry standards, thus improving performance and security. The PSN is a replacement to the GSi (Government Secured Intranet), and all Public Sector agencies must migrate to the PSN by 31 October 2014. AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM) platform can provide you with the single solution you need to address many of the network- and security-related questions required to complete your PSN IA documentation.
By 2020 Gartner estimates the proliferation of IoT with a market installed base of 20.4 billion endpoint devices, comprised of both "smart" and "dumb" devices, each leveraging multiple communication types. As each of these devices can become a target entry point for hackers, endpoint and network visibility is a top concern for CISOs responsible for security and risk management.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still don’t understand the basics of this im

Since the 1990s, email has evolved from a tool used primarily by technical and research professionals to become the backbone of corporate communications. Each day, more than 100 billion corporate email messages are exchanged.1 Security has naturally become a top priority. But mass spam campaigns are no longer the only security concern.
From collaboration to communication to data access, the web is a mission-critical business tool. Enterprises rely on the web not only to innovate and compete but also to conduct business. But the web poses significant security risks that are easily encountered by users, yet not so easy to detect.
