Mimecast has seen firsthand that not all email security systems perform equally well. But, until now, we’ve lacked the comparative data to prove our perceptions. In order to address this head-on, Mimecast has launched the Email Security Risk Assessment (ESRA). The Mimecast ESRA has three goals:
1. To test the Mimecast cloud security service against an individual organization’s incumbent email security system. To help the organization understand the relative efficacy of the security systems and to see the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are currently getting into the organization.
2. To inform the security industry with hard data on the effectiveness of various commonly-deployed email security systems.
3. To inform the security industry with hard data regarding the number, type and severity of email-borne threats that are being actively used in attacks.

Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well.
S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each.
In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.
In a world where IT has become increasingly complex, cyber threats are unrelenting, and the cost to mitigate is becoming overwhelming, organizations are reconsidering the DIY approach to security and embracing the idea of outsourced security services. And while there are caveats to outsourcing security services, many organizations are reaping the OpEx and CapEx benefits while freeing themselves from becoming in-house security experts - refocusing on their core business.

By definition, a botnet is a series of Internet-connected computers, or bots, each infected with the same or different types of malware specific to the botnet’s operations. Download now to learn more about botnets and how to protect yourself from them.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures.
By aligning governance related policies and rules with all identity management processes, organizations can achieve continuous, sustainable compliance, thereby reducing the need for after the fact fixes and expensive, error prone manual remediation.

Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success. This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.
In the age of information, staying on top of emerging threats requires IT teams to leverage existing tools in innovative ways, such as applying deep packet inspection and analysis from performance monitoring solutions for advanced security forensics. Based on recent insight gathered from 322 network engineers, IT directors and CIOs around the world, 85 percent of enterprise network teams are now involved with security investigations, indicating a major shift in the role of those teams within enterprises. Large-scale and high-profile security breaches have become more common as company data establishes itself as a valuable commodity on the black market. As such, enterprises are now dedicating more IT resources than ever before to protect data integrity.
Companies across the globe are all facing the same economic headwinds: business change in the form of competitive threats and new opportunities is coming at an unprecedented pace. The watchword for meeting these challenges is innovation – both in terms of business processes as well as the underlying technology that enables those processes.
The sum of the experiences discussed in this report showcase how SAP S/4HANA, running on-premise or in the cloud, can form the basis for a broad-based business transformation that does not require a big bang implementation to succeed.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
Never have Distributed Denial of Service attacks been more present globally, and it’s time for the healthcare industry to take notice. They have shut down of?ces, caused ransom-like threats, and created an atmosphere where a sophisticated attack could come from almost anywhere at almost any time.
