The threat landscape is dramatically different than it was just 5 years ago. A traditional web application firewall (WAF) was once a very effective solution for mitigating application layer attacks, but now has trouble keeping up with the advanced capabilities and agility of attackers. Signatures often lag behind new...
With the increasing complexity of DDoS attack vectors, comes the evolving need to continually revaluate your DDoS protection strategy. The situation is only further complicated by new attack motives and the exponential abundance of vulnerable IoT devices.
To properly conduct a quantitative risk analysis, download...
When evaluating Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection for your business what are the top questions you should be asking from a managed service provider? You know that checking the box with a Firewall or IPS device combo is not enough to protect your organization from potential DDoS attacks. Today's threats...
Hunting for an unknown threat or investigating an alert or breach can prove challenging and time-consuming for anyone - whether that's a dedicated analyst or a person that plays multiple roles. While having visibility across data silos is a great starting point, detecting and addressing threats over the long term...
Police recently arrested the suspected administrators and top users of the stresser/booter service Webstresser.org. Unfortunately, the plethora of such services means the world is unlikely to see a reduction in DDoS attack volumes, says Darren Anstee of Arbor Networks.
Old technology never dies, but rather fades "very slowly" away, as evidenced by there being 21 million FTP servers still in use, says Rapid7's Tod Beardsley. Rapid7's scans of the internet have also revealed a worrying number of internet-exposed databases, memcached servers and poorly secured VoIP devices.
What are hot cybersecurity topics in Scotland? The "International Conference on Big Data in Cyber Security" in Edinburgh focused on everything from securing the internet of things the rise of CEO fraud to the origins of "cyber" and how to conduct digital forensic investigations on cloud servers.
Mirai-like, distributed denial of service attacks launched by IoT devices are an indication that DDoS may no longer be an external-only threat facing enterprises, warns Philippe Alcoy of Arbor Networks.
When June arrives in the United Kingdom, that means it's time for the annual Infosecurity Europe conference in London. Here are visual highlights from this year's event, which featured 240 sessions, 400 exhibitors and an estimated 19,500 attendees.
While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy, most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn't have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can...
Although every action on the Internet relies on the Domain Name
System (DNS), many organizations fail to install corresponding

Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the
vulnerabilities of recursive DNS
How are you proactively protecting your network from targeted threats? Many businesses are turning to a zero trust security strategy to "verify, but never trust" all users and devices. This is an
especially relevant approach as we examine the inherent risk that users and devices pose through outbound DNS requests....
Malicious actors are increasingly utilizing the recursive DNS
infrastructure to launch damaging phishing attacks, malware and
ransomware campaigns, and data exfiltration against companies.
Proactively protecting your company against such threats at the
DNS control-point, as opposed to retroactive...
