2016 Internet Security Threat Report: Security Landscape; Software, Appliances, Threats, and Capabilities

Posted by Gerry Poe

The 2016 Intenet Security Threat Report provides an overview and analysis of the year in global threat activity.

Last year, 2015, Symantec discovered more than 430 million new unique pieces of malware. Remarkably, these numbers no longer surprise us. Attacks against businesses and nations hit the headlines with such regularity that we’ve become numb to the sheer volume and acceleration of cyber threats. Most threat reports only scratch the surface of the threat landscape, whereas the breadth of Symantec’s data enables the Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) to examine multiple facets, including:

  • Targeted attacks
  • Smartphone threats
  • Social media scams
  • Internet of Things (IoT) vulnerabilities
  • Attackers’ tactics, motivations, and behaviors

Why Your Firewall Strategy Isn’t Working

Posted by Gerry Poe

Your Firewall Strategy Isn’t Working:
It's All About Internal Network Firewalls

The truth is the internal network is no longer a “trusted” environment - whether a malicious outsider, evil insider or unknowing participant - once inside, threats can spread easily and quickly and do maximum damage. Internal firewalls, while not a new concept, are finally taking hold and the results are a game changer for network protection.

What you can expect:

  • Complete, continuous inside-out protection against advanced threats
  • Easy default Transparent Mode deployment without network reconfiguration
  • Multi-gigabit performance supports wire-speed East-West traffic
