  • Advanced Threats and Big Data: The New Cybersecurity Landscape

    So often in our organizations, information silos keep us from sharing data and communicating the right information at the right time to stop advanced threats. Hear why a big data solution is an important part of a defense against advanced threats and ideas about what data sources are required across the organization for this analysis to combat these attacks.

  • The STAND: Cybersecurity

    Advanced persistent threats. Zero-day attacks. Insider threats. Cybersecurity experts say that if IT leaders are not concerned about the ongoing evolution of the cyber landscape, it just means they are not paying enough attention. The problem is that these and other emerging cyber tactics are designed to evade traditional cyber defenses and escape detection until it’s too late. The good news is it’s not a lost cause. In this special report, two subject matter experts discuss cybersecurity technologies and strategies that can help agencies defend their systems and data against the latest cyber threats, today and into the future.

  • Beyond the Next Generation: Meeting the Converging Demands of Network Security

    A number of network security technologies have arisen that claim to be the "next generation" of network defense - but what does this concept actually mean? How is the threat landscape changing the way we think about and deploy network security solutions? Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research provides insight into what we can expect in the area of network security and how to leverage new technologies to meet today's security challenges in light of other considerations such as overall complexity and performance.
