Implementation of software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solutions can be a complex process, with multiple factors affecting the overall performance of the device.
NSS research indicates that SD-WANs are typically deployed with the vendor's pre-defined or recommended (i.e., "out-of-the-box") settings. The tested...
If you're dealing with the high cost and complexities of delivering reliable wide area connectivity over traditional carrier-based networks, you're probably considering some form of software-defined wide area networking
With the variety of constraints that Network Security teams are faced with, selecting...
Most organizations are undergoing some form of digital transformation (DX). But DX initiatives bring complexity for network operations teams. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues.
Given these realities, it is no wonder that SD-WAN technology is...
As businesses continue to become more global, they decentralize and
externalize non-core business functions, transitioning them to a network of suppliers,
factories, warehouses, transporters, and other value chain stakeholders. The benefits of this are obvious but it leaves your organization more vulnerable to cyber...
As the scale of all types of attacks continues to increase, traditional stateful perimeter security devices like firewalls often strain to keep up. Adding stateless technology between the firewall and the Internet router, armed with advanced reputation and threat intelligence data, can decrease the heavy load on your...
Banks in West Africa have been targeted by at least four hacking campaigns since mid-2017, with online attackers wielding commoditized attack tools and "living off the land" tactics to disguise their efforts, Symantec warns.
Cybercrime outfits appeared to take a vacation around the December holidays. But attacks involving Emotet, Hancitor and Trickbot have resurged following their December slowdown, as has the Fallout exploit kit, lately serving GandCrab ransomware.
Venture capitalists invested $5.3 billion in cybersecurity companies in 2018, about 20 percent more than in 2017 and twice as much as 2016, according to research from Strategic Cyber Ventures. What's ahead for 2019 and beyond?
Australian security expert Troy Hunt says an 87 GB compilation of username and password combinations - drawn from more than 2,000 databases - includes 773 million unique email addresses for apparent use in credential-stuffing attacks. Takeaway: Use a unique password for every site, or else.
As you take advantage of the operational and economic benefits of virtualization and
the cloud, it's critical to secure your virtualized data centers, cloud deployments, hybrid
environments, and containers effectively. If you neglect any aspect of security, you leave
gaps that open the door to threats and serious...
Traditional security for development teams has been functionally separated, with different tools for different departments operated by different resources. However, this monolithic approach is changing rapidly as organizations look to transition development operations to cloud and container platforms.
This has led...
Enterprise use of artificial intelligence, including machine learning, is
