"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
APIs are increasingly powering mobile applications, websites, single-page applications, and data sharing. APIs connect across business and technology boundaries—meaning every enterprise has good reason to be developing, delivering, and consuming APIs.

Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

Matthew Coy, Safelite’s Vice President of Information Technology, is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the company’s IT infrastructure, including selecting, administering, and supporting technology products. The company handles personally identifiable information, including credit card information and insurance data collected from several sources, and must comply with insurance industry regulations and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Safelite is the target of constant external attacks. The organization experienced ongoing security issues stemming from infected software, drivebys and other malicious downloads. According to Matthew, “A lot of malware and email viruses were making it through the environment, all bypassing our email security and AV.” Not only were the security controls ineffective, the previous AV platform required nearly 150 hours per week to manage. Matthew knew Safelite needed to make a change, and fast. Having worked with Cylance® at two previous companies, he was confident CylancePROTECT® could significantly improve Safelite’s endpoint security. Read the full case study to learn about the results Cylance was able to deliver.

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

Encryption technology has enabled much greater privacy and security for enterprises that use the Internet to communicate and transact business online. Mobile, cloud and web applications rely on well-implemented encryption mechanisms, using keys and certificates to ensure security and trust. However, businesses are not the only ones to benefit from encryption.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.
Increased access to data and more channels of communication have given citizens renewed civic power. Public-sector agencies must be just as responsive as any other enterprise with which citizens interact. If you’re an optimist, imagining the results of a hyperconnected citizenry is exciting. As long as government is responsive, greater citizen involvement could help reduce problems that plague modern society, including poverty, disenfranchisement and even crime.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
IT security used to be about keeping intruders out and selectively letting in friendly visitors, which was best accomplished with a range of perimeter security and end-point solutions. Download this asset to learn more how the landscape has fundamentally shifted since, with much of this shift accelerating in the last 2-3 years.

MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
Cyberattacks are now a fact of life. Yet detection still lags. In 2015, the median amount of time attackers spent inside organizations before detection was 146 days. Why are we so vulnerable?
MIT Technology Review asks Andrzej Kawalec, chief technology officer for HPE Security Services and Marshall Heilman, vice-president and executive director at Mandiant, a FireEye company, what we can do to make our systems more secure.
Is your organization prepared for a cyberattack? Most aren’t.
86% of organizations surveyed lack adequate cybersecurity capabilities. Read MIT Technology Review’s latest infographic, based on their survey of 225 business and IT leaders, and learn if you have cybersecurity holes and how to patch them.
While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterday’s signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, today’s unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. What’s the answer? A new white paper, “The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” explains machine learning (ML) technology —what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. You’ll also learn about CrowdStrike’s exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platform’s next-gen AV solution,it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.
