Vulnerability Management

In computer security, the term vulnerability is applied to a weakness in a system which allows an attacker to violate the integrity of that system. Vulnerabilities may result from weak passwords, software bugs, a computer virus or other malware, a script code injection, a SQL injection or misconfiguration.<br><br>A security risk is classified as a vulnerability if it is recognized as a possible means of attack. A security risk with one or more known instances of working and fully-implemented attacks is classified as an exploit.

As the world becomes more connected, it is no longer enough for enterprises to react once an alert indicates an attacker is inside the network. Instead, with continuous packet capture and threat feeds followed by analysis, it is now possible to hunt the attackers and locate them versus waiting for an alert.

White Paper Published By: CDW     Published Date: Feb 24, 2015
All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organizations policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.

DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.

White Paper Published By: Arbor     Published Date: Sep 15, 2014
In this whitepaper, noted industry analyst Richard Stiennon examines the emerging requirement in the ongoing arms race with threat actors. Despite years of investment in multiple layers of security defenses, every organization is still wide open to targeted attacks. It is practically impossible to stop all possible attacks. Even next-generation firewalls, complete alerting and logging collected in a SIEM, and universal patch management and vulnerability discovery has proven to be ineffective against threat actors who are motivated, skilled and determined. This paper answers the critical questions about security analytics and explains why it is one of the fastest growing product categories in security.
