The problem with the vast majority of network and endpoint security solutions is that they operate on the premise of static whitelists and blacklists. These lists do not account for the changing nature of URLs, IPs, files and applications, nor for the volume of unknown threats permeating the web, meaning they cannot be used to provide adequate protection.
Compounding this problem is that commercial network security technology, such as NGFWs and unified threat management systems, can easily flood the organizationís network security teams with too many alerts and false positives, making it impossible to understand and respond to new threats. As a result, not only do these threats evade the security technology and
land with the victimís infrastructure, but they also have plenty of time to steal sensitive data and inflict damage to the victimís business. The final characteristic of the latest attacks is how quickly they compromise and exfiltrate data from the organization, compared to the
In this white paper, learn how PCI-DSS 3.0 effects how you deploy and maintain PCI compliant networks using CradlePoint solutions. Properly configure, monitor, and maintain your CradlePoint devices to meet the requirements of PCI DSS 3.0. Enabling features include network segmentation (ethernet ports, SSIDs, and VLANs), stateful firewall, MAC/IP/URL filtering, authentication/encryption, event logging, event alerts, time synchronization, and configuration/upgrade management from CradlePoint Enterprise Cloud Manager.
URL filtering is a must for enterprise policy management. While the process is not difficult to implement, you can make it even easier and more effective by adhering to 10 best practices for URL filtering.
