White Paper: ZoneFox
How can User Behaviour Analytics help secure business-critical data while protecting reputation, and sales revenue? As insider threat is the greatest risk to an organization’s security, an insider threat management program must include a robust understanding of the various profiles that fall under this threat umbrella and the motivations and situations that give rise to them. Since the hardest part of managing the insider threat is understanding it, ZoneFox provides an overview of five key insider profiles that will help organizations to start identifying and handling the insider threats more effectively. The whitepaper details about several threats including fraud, and spying, and the possible steps to minimize damages and avoid future risks. What is the use of user behavior analytics in any business? What is the impact of internal threats in an organization? Move ahead and read the following whitepaper that will address all your questions, including these: 1. What are the different types of internal threats? 2. How to define an action plan for internal threat remediation? 3. What are the reasons that can cause an internal threat? 4. What are the current approaches related to internal threat mitigation?
White Paper: GlobalLogic
As trends such as machine-to-machine connectivity, smart devices, social networks, and migrating to the cloud progress, there is a growing concern around the compromise of privacy and data security. Even government and commercial organizations are threatened by sophisticated intrusion tactics. There is now a growing need to gather and analyze data on potential security risks through advanced measures. Not only will the demand for security-related products in the market rise, but commercial and enterprise products will themselves need to be designed with security as an important consideration. As a product R&D services provider, GlobalLogic is intimate with these requirements and has established the required leadership, processes, and technologies to help our customers address these issues. We have written this white paper in order to provide a high-level description of the current security environment, including the various aspects of this domain and how they interact.

Hyper Converged Infrastructures (HCI) brings non-disruptive scaling, reduced complexity, and other benefits, but it requires a stronger data-protection strategy because hyper convergence brings new vulnerabilities. Hyper converged systems are a perfect target-one unique system to encrypt with a built-in replication to spread the malware. For smaller companies with relatively few virtual machines (VMs), a Hyper Converged Infrastructure solution may be the only architecture their data center needs, providing the ultimate simplification. Some critical applications can also be hosted on an HCI, but designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging compared to designing a more traditional infrastructure. This whitepaper provides insights on data protection basics and its role in Hyper Converged Infrastructure projects. It also explains about how designing an HCI to meet performance service-level agreements (SLAs) might be challenging. From virtualized to hyper converged environments- Understand data protection basics and implications in these environments Hyper convergence- New Threats: Understand Data Protection and the Implications in an HCI How to choose the right approach for your hyper converged environments Array-Based Snapshots Are Not Backups
Your Last Line of Defense Against Ransomware
White Paper: Quantum
The best defense against a Ransomware attack is to perform a regular backup of your files. Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their computer system, either by locking the system’s screen or by locking/encrypting the users’ files unless a ransom is paid in exchange for the deciphering key. Keeping a disconnected off-line copy of your data is a pragmatic way to improve your backup strategy. Your last line of defense against Ransomware needs to be an off-line backup. This whitepaper describes what happens when Ransomware takes over a computer, what steps needs to be taken for defense against Ransomware, and how regular and proper backups can help users restore data. It addresses key questions like: >How does Ransomware get into your environment? >How do you protect your data from Ransomware attacks? >Is cloud Ransomware protection heaven?

How do you secure the enterprise content management process? Files stored on the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platforms are not easily accessible by users from outside of the office as ECM platforms typically require a VPN, and a public cloud solution. Making this content accessible to users across devices presents challenges for most enterprise organizations. IT departments need a solution to make ECM and cloud storage available securely to users, no matter where or when the work is being done. When developing an enterprise content management system, you should firstly have to focus on its security. This whitepaper briefs about the requirements to provide secure access to ECM platforms and cloud storage services, and how to best enable productivity for the workforce. • Is your organization able to provide secure access to all your stored enterprise content from any device? • Is protecting and managing sensitive content the top priority for your enterprise content management systems? • How Well Does Your Enterprise Content Management System Protect Sensitive Information? Read this white paper to learn about securing enterprise content within your organization.
White Paper: Special Counsels EQ
Today, an employee from a London company can wirelessly send emails to customers in New York from a Parisian café using cloud servers located in Dallas, Amsterdam and Berlin. The low cost of electronic storage coupled with the high speed of global communication networks makes it increasingly unlikely that a corporation’s data is stored within the geographic borders of the United States. Electronically stored information (ESI) stored outside the U.S. presents a number of obstacles, in addition to the “normal” challenges regarding the collection, processing and production of eDiscovery. International treaties and agreements concerning cross-border discovery made before social networking platforms, cloud computing and ultra-fast global network connections are outdated, and with little hope of sweeping reforms any-time soon, it leaves much up in the air. This Whitepaper describes the cultural and legal obstacles faced by companies while going global.

IoT is here, fueling the fire for cyber risk via mobile sources. By 2020, there will be more than 1,000,000,000 M2M (yes, a billion plus!) connections, each device module capable of accessing your network by a malicious hacker. Are you or will you be prepared? Despite growing security risks, budget constraints and a perceived lack of internal concern have led to a slow adoption of formal mobile security policies and technology solutions. Most enterprises are inexperienced in mobile applications security and the developers don’t completely focus on the security but their functions, thus making them vulnerable to security threats. Technology is evolving rapidly and keeping that in mind, the executives must have clear-cut answers to all the possible mobility use-scenarios with a robust security solution in place to ensure business information is kept secure and is only accessible to those who need to access it. Download this informative whitepaper to get an insight on the things that will spur this industry on to better tools and best practices that will accelerate the Enterprise Mobility Security Adoption and how IT organizations can use them for better productivity without compromising protection.
