Ron the CIO challenges IT operations to cut 70% off of the application deployment schedule. Are his application, security, and network teams up to the task? How can SDN in the data center provide a powerful answer?
The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.
Los atacantes y los responsables de la seguridad están desarrollando tecnologías y tácticas cada vez más sofisticadas. Por su parte, los atacantes están creando infraestructuras back-end sólidas para el lanzamiento y soporte de sus campañas. Los ciberdelincuentes están perfeccionando sus técnicas para obtener dinero de sus víctimas y para evitar ser detectados mientras continúan robando datos y propiedad intelectual.
En este documento se identifican las funcionalidades esenciales necesarias en una solución de protección contra malware avanzado y las preguntas clave que debe formularle a su proveedor, y se muestra cómo Cisco combate los ataques de malware avanzado actuales mediante una combinación de cuatro técnicas
El panorama de amenazas actual no se parece en nada al de hace solamente 10 años. Los ataques simples que provocaban daños controlables han dado lugar a operaciones modernas de ciberdelito que son sofisticadas, están bien financiadas y son capaces de generar interrupciones importantes en las organizaciones y en la infraestructura nacional. Estos ataques avanzados son difíciles de detectar, además permanecen en las redes por mucho tiempo y acumulan recursos de red para lanzar ataques a todas partes.
A través de los años, todos hemos escuchado hablar de soluciones simples y aparentemente mágicas que permiten resolver problemas de seguridad, incluido el uso exclusivo de la tecnología de sandboxing para combatir el malware avanzado y las amenazas dirigidas.
Prevention is your first line of defense. Make sure your Next-Gen Endpoint Security includes:
Global Threat Intelligence – a team of threat hunters detecting the newest threats and uncovering zero-days to keep you protected 24/7
Signature-based AV Detection – let your Next-Gen Endpoint Security solution do all the AV heavy lifting and consolidate protection onto one agent
Built-in Sandboxing – get static and dynamic analysis of suspicious threats, without having to deploy a third-party sandbox
Proactive Protection – identify and patch vulnerabilities, and analyze and stop suspicious low-prevalence executables before they become real problems
Detect attacks that get past perimeter defenses across the digital business. Detect malicious patterns in encrypted traffic. No decryption is needed with our Encrypted Traffic Analytics technology and multilayer machine learning. Extend your network visibility.
The network is the foundation of robust security, and the critical network security element is the firewall. For that reason, Cisco has been committed to delivering a next-generation firewall that can stop threats at the edge and focus on security efficacy. Those efforts are paying off in substantial momentum, and market observers are taking note.
Cisco has been named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Beginning with our world-class threat-intelligence organization, Talos - the Cisco NGFW stands out from the competition. It goes beyond prevention and gives visibility into potentially malicious file activity across users, hosts, networks, and infrastructure. It saves you time and enables automation using our integrated architecture.
No other firewall vendor have the strength and breadth of networking and security capabilities that Cisco offers. Learn More about it by downloading Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) offers an integrated, comprehensive approach to endpoint security. Continuous analysis and telemetry features keep its finger on the pulse of network anomalies, and all suspicious activity is investigated. Contextual reporting highlights trends for administers, helping them reassess network architecture to close vulnerable points of entry. Also important is its flexible deployment, which makes it simple for any organization to tailor its endpoint security.

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.

Imagine if you could see deep into the future. And way back into the past, both at the same time. Imagine having visibility of everything that had ever happened and everything that was ever going to happen, everywhere, all at once.

Attacks have many phases. Before launching, the attacker needs to stage internet infrastructure to support each phase. Two early phases are to redirect or link to a malicious web domain or send a malicious email attachment. For the former, most attacks leverage exploit kits (e.g. Angler) as the first stage before dropping the final payload. Cisco Umbrella effectively blocks initial exploit and phishing domains.
Unlike appliances, our cloud security platform protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protection extends to every device connected to the network — even IoT. Umbrella truly is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

What is ransomware?
Ransomware is a malicious software designed to hold a user’s files (such as healthcare records, financial contracts, manufacturing blueprints, software code, and other documents) for ransom by encrypting them and demanding the user pay a fee (often in Bitcoin) to decrypt them.
How ransomware works
Attackers initiate attacks using an array of tactics. Ransomware infections often first begin with an exploit kit — which are software kits designed to identify software vulnerabilities on endpoints and then upload and execute malicious code on the endpoint.
Although variants of ransomware behave differently — there are many ways that Cisco can help. Download this whitepaper today to find out more.
