This paper outlines the discrete layers and levels of a world-class security organisation and programme, and how organisations can take advantage of services from SecureWorks to support their progress toward worldclass status.
This paper takes an in-depth look at the true costs — both short and long term — of a data breach, and provides steps and tips that executive teams and security leaders can use to determine and reduce the true cost of a data breach.
This paper explores why the older “all or nothing” kind of relationship between business organisations and information security services providers (ISSPs) is giving way to a hybrid model that security professionals can leverage to augment their operations and effectiveness.
To ensure that “quasi-insiders” or third parties do not contribute to your enterprise’s attack vector, it’s imperative to develop a third-party governance process to mitigate risk. Read on to find out how.
In this white paper we will discover what the evolving path ahead for security leaders looks like, the importance of communication from top to bottom, focusing on how proactive measures can stop threat actors from derailing businesses, and how building a security architecture that protects the most critical assets will support the overall goals of an organisation.

The Middleware Services Group within Information Technology Services (ITS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needed a comprehensive, dynamic solution for frequent server provisioning requests and, in particular, managed servers. Without such a solution, the likelihood that users would employ outside vendors significantly increased. Use of outside vendors would potentially increase security concerns, present additional costs, and further complicate system administration. Moving to a fully-interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, built on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, has allowed the middleware services team to deliver a flexible development and hosting environment that has fostered innovation and increased peace of mind.
Security managers should evaluate MSSPs for enterprise scale operations, multinational and local presence, and effective threat management and compliance capabilities. Use this Magic Quadrant to evaluate MSSPs to support global service requirements, regional presence and leading-edge services.
The web application firewall (WAF) is among the most complex security technologies on the market today. The complexity of managing a WAF includes a pre-defined list of rules to identify thousands of potential exploits, intelligence about new attack vectors, and identifying malicious HTTP requests from legitimate HTTP traffic. Read this white paper to learn how to combine attack detection with threat intelligence using our cloud platform and managed security services to better protect your web applications.
At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close. All sectors of IT users from small to large enterprises, governmental groups, and even cloud service providers (CSPs) who themselves have begun to offer managed cloud services from third-party platforms—touch the hybrid cloud environment. CIOs, especially, face new challenges in deploying or expanding their enterprise presence in the cloud.
This white paper examines four critical areas—migration, security, costs, and visibility—where CIOs can make major differences in the successful execution of hybrid cloud strategies. We’ve listed 20 fundamental questions CIOs can discuss with both their internal deployment groups and their external CSP/system integrator in preparation for a migration to or an expansion of hybrid cloud services.

Kevin O'Sullivan, Security Service Director, Kinetic IT, explains how this Australian managed security services provider relies on McAfee Enterprise Security Manager to deliver visibility of risks and threats for its customers.
The security world is a scary place, and it’s getting scarier. Every day brings more risks, threats, customer demands, and regulations. Worse yet, it’s becoming more difficult to recruit and retain people who really get it and know how to help. It’s time for a new model. A survey conducted by Forrester Consulting and commissioned by IBM shows that security leaders are partnering with managed security services providers in increasing numbers—and the feedback is overwhelmingly positive.
IDC collected and analyzed data on 11 MSSPs within the 2014 IDC MarketScape worldwide managed security services market assessment. While the market arena for MSS is very broad and there are many suppliers that offer these services, IDC narrowed down the field of players that participate in worldwide MSS based on the following criteria: Service capability across the MSS life cycle; Revenue and Geographic presence.
Enterprises are trending toward hybrid IT operations, turning to the cloud and managed service providers to fill the gaps in complex IT environments. This demands a new generation of MSS, enabling on-premise and managed functions to be viewed and controlled as part of a common platform.
