OnPage News: Security Attacks

Security Attacks

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… Security attacks? New defenses in 2016 escape compromise. Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Worried that attackers may know your infrastructure better than you do? Cyberthreats are learning fast from defenses that detect them. New strategies focus on what happens next.   Arden Peterkin has little faith that antivirus software can be effective against today’s cyberthreats. In the past, the security architect deployed antivirus software on 80,000 endpoints in a large Georgia school district’s network to prevent a security attack. While the software reported “all clear,” a quick look at the device logs for the network confirmed infected systems were still communicating with known command-and-control sites. “The actual management console was showing that everything was great, but when we looked at the logs, they showed that the network was totally infected,” says Peterkin, a security contractor with Reamer & Associates. Today, Peterkin […] Read more »

OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More…   IT Security And Operations Staffs Often Work At Cross-Purposes   Article Courtesy of:  Forbes Hackers and state-sponsored cyber armies aren’t the only security threats large enterprises face today. Some of the biggest risks come from outdated and poorly synchronized internal procedures that thwart efforts to quickly defend against known threats. For example, 44% of executives in North America and Europe say security breaches occur even when vulnerabilities and their remediation have already been identified. The result: many enterprises face unnecessary risks to data loss and production downtime. One reason: while the joint efforts of security and IT operations ultimately deter- mine an enterprise’s security strength, the individual goals of these two groups are often misaligned, thanks to conflicting responsibilities and different metrics for evaluating and rewarding successful performance. The result is what industry analysts are calling a “SecOps gap,” […] Read more »

The New 80-20 Rule for Data Center Cybersecurity Article Courtesy of:  SC Magazine – Written by: Alan S. Cohen @ Illumio . For much of the IT industry, 2014 was the year of the hack.   Reporters and analysts investigated and wrote incessantly about the seemingly hourly break-ins of corporate computer systems, culminating with the Sony incident associated with the release of “The Interview.” Undoubtedly, the cybersecurity challenge is going to result in an increasing focus and spend on security systems.   The question, however, is whether this will reduce the risk. Let’s start with the corporate data center, the Fort Knox of the enterprise, and how we guard its crown jewels.  Today, the vast bulk of security spend is on the network — firewalls, IDS/IPS, APT, monitoring, etc. — and it focuses almost exclusively on the internet perimeter. These investments account for over $10 billion in hardware/software spend alone (this […] Read more »

OnPage News: Mobile Compliance

IT in the gutter with Mobile Compliance Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget The emergence of enterprise mobility has made it a lot more complicated for organizations to maintain compliance with government and industry-specific regulations. Regulatory compliance encompasses a slew of federal, state and local laws and policies that businesses must adhere to. When it comes to technology, that means obeying laws that help ensure secure data storage and processing. If a company fails to comply, it could face repercussions such as fines and even criminal charges. But the consumerization trend put another wrinkle in the way enterprises deal with compliance. Now, companies have to worry about mobile compliance and securing their data on employees’ personal smartphones and tablets — not just on corporate-provided devices. That’s tougher to secure, because IT typically has less insight into users’ own devices and apps. With company-issued laptops and desktops, IT admins could keep closer tabs […] Read more »

First, the ECRI Institute explained in its list of the Top 10 Technological Advances to Watch in 2016 that medical device cybersecurity is a top issue that could affect care delivery. “Hospital leaders have to deal with a lot of new technology issues—and demands from different departments in their facilities—so this list is intended to assist them in their efforts to update or implement their strategic technology plans,” Robert P. Maliff, director, applied solutions group, ECRI Institute, said in a statement. ECRI also said that mobile strike units, […] Read more »

The Growing Role of Incident Response for Improved Cybersecurity Article Courtesy of:  InfoRisk Today Awareness is up, But Asian Approach Still Young. Asia is evolving into a huge and complex market for technology. Following the trend where technology follows the route from the Americas, to Europe and then to Asia, the practice of incident response is just taking root in Asian countries. “An incident response team by definition says that an organizations recognizes it is going to be breached, and needs a team to respond to any incident,” says Jeff Buhl, VP & GM APAC for Arbor Networks. “That’s a big step in security and the acceptance of the need for that is only just starting in Asia.” But organizations are slowly starting to accept they are vulnerable and at least beginning to educate themselves about it, he says. There is a demand for education and awareness, yet maturity is still […] Read more »

Data Center

Five Data Center Trends to Watch in 2016 Article Courtesy of:  Yossi Ben Harosh is President & CEO of RiT Technologies. All signs indicate that 2016 will be a year of many challenges for a data center. Disruptive technologies will be introduced, the exponential increase in computing power will continue, while businesses will demand a prompt response to quickly changing requirements.
