This webinar, hosted by Palo Alto Networks, focuses on deployment of 'Zero Trust Network Segmentation' in industrial control systems in large scale, mult-plant environments. We begin with an explanation of the concepts behind 'Zero Trust', scalability, the best ways to adapt existing networking and segmentation without needing to reconfigure infrastructure, and how Palo Alto's platform adresses these needs.

The threat landscape has evolved and the traditional approach to endpoint security cannot keep up. Detection/response is not an acceptable approach. There are a number of approaches to prevent threats on the endpoint and their ability to prevent unknown and zero-day threats varies widely. Join this webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester where we will discuss the findings from a recent commissioned survey they conducted that evaluates these approaches and illustrates that exploit prevention and integration with a network security platform are must-have capabilities. Forrester will also summarize their recommendations for prevention of advanced threats on the endpoint.
The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.
Cloud-first development initiatives, the need to deliver your
applications and services to an exploding number of mobile devices and the ongoing need to accomplish more with less is driving a data center transformation that increasingly includes the public cloud.
Even with more advanced features and supposed higher throughput than ever before, firewalls are not able to keep up with modern demands or advanced threats. Users are more distributed than ever, and so is data. Threats are
changing rapidly, and traditional defense mechanisms that rely on layered security do not work.
Every year, record levels of money are spent on new IT security technology yet major breaches and compromises are more
prevalent than ever. The concept of “layered security” in which an organization supports a wide variety of security technologies in order to discourage attackers doesn’t seem to be working. It’s time to rethink IT security not just the technology, but the way it’s approached from a strategic, architectural perspective.
Your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Oftentimes, these applications span both personal and work-related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.
Traditional antivirus (AV) is not the solution to preventing security breaches on the endpoint – it is the problem. AV is no longer
effective at stopping today’s cyberthreats. Although AV satisfies many regulatory, governance and compliance requirements, it saddles organizations with hidden costs while providing little to no real security value.
There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue vulnerability patches to remediate those flaws, many organizations do not apply all available patches to their production environments.
SaaS applications continue to provide a tremendous value to end users with easy setup and collaboration capabilities that are changing the way organizations do business. The concern over the loss of data leaving the corporate network and opening the network to external threats through unknown collaborators has caused many organizations to take a "wait and see" approach to SaaS. Microsoft® Office 365™ changes all that.
A new survey commissioned by Palo Alto Networks and
conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group explores why enterprise
IT leaders are embracing CASB products, where they are using
them, and what capabilities are most important to them.
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center
hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in
costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases,
virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and
networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment.
Your business relies on a Microsoft® infrastructure that
stretches from your network to the cloud to endpoints located
around the world. In many ways, the success of your business
relies on how secure your Microsoft infrastructure is. Your
users do not care where the applications and data reside; they
only care about getting their job done. SharePoint®, Skype for
Business, or Active Directory® deployed on the network, in
Azure®, or as part of your Office 365® subscription should have
no impact on the success of your business.
The public cloud has rapidly moved past the novelty, curiosity stage to the business critical initiative stage for nearly every established organization. In a 2016 IDC CloudView survey, 80% of the enterprises contacted were actively engaged in public-cloud projects. The driving forces are a realization that the public cloud is “enterprise ready” and the need to be more agile, more responsive and more competitive. For those organizations that already have an existing physical IT infrastructure, the common starting point is a hybrid approach, which extends the existing data center into Microsoft® Azure™.
Today, working remotely has never been easier, due to the ubiquity of mobile devices and reliable Internet connectivity. The ease with which a worker can get connected to the corporate network delivers the impression that your co-worker is down the hall, when in fact they are traveling internationally. Global Workplace Analytics’ research shows that increasingly, working remotely is not only commonplace, it is encouraged and has shown to improve productivity.
The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
Microsoft® announced Windows Server® 2003 End-of-Support (EOS) on July 14, 2015. Many businesses are forced by circumstance to leave these systems in service for some time. Retiring a major enterprise component has always been a challenge for IT departments.
"Next generation" capability has been achieved by the products in the network firewall market, and vendors differentiate on feature strengths. Buyers must consider the trade-offs between best-of-breed function and costs.
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said
that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to
first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are
so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the
field can argue against them.
While few corporate executives and boards of directors would dispute the importance of cybersecurity, some may feel ill-prepared to begin the process of managing these risks given the myriad technical and non-technical elements of the issue. The goal of this document is to address this gap by providing corporate leaders a practical framework for addressing the people, process, and technology elements of the cybersecurity challenge.
Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.
Data breaches are on the rise. The number of breach notifcations issued by the New York State Attorney General’s ofce, for example, has risen 40% during 2016 compared with the same period a year earlier.
