The endpoint security marketplace is crowded with vendors claiming to have superior capabilities. Cutting through all the marketing and sales pitches to understand how these products perform isn’t easy. Luckily, The MITRE Corporation conducted an independent test of the detection and investigation capabilities of leading endpoint detection and response (EDR) products against real-world attack sequences. We’ll break down MITRE’s methodology, the results, and what it all means for your organization as you assess your current and future endpoint security toolkit.
The journey to the cloud is not a linear one, and organizations choose to migrate to the cloud in a multitude of ways and approaches. The resulting complexity is the enemy of security. In fact, according to ESG, “36% of organizations use between 24 to 49 different security products while 19% use more than 50 different products from an assortment of vendors.” All this noise only makes way for more security concerns such as integration issues, misconfigurations, and access control. To overcome this complexity and succeed in the cloud, organizations must demand security solutions that can quickly and effectively scale with changing business needs. Prisma by Palo Alto Networks is the industry’s most complete cloud security offering for today and tomorrow, providing unprecedented visibility into data, assets, and risks across the cloud and delivered with radical simplicity.
This paper examines the changing threat landscape and highlights the importance of best-in-class endpoint protection working in lockstep with other security products to create coordinated and comprehensive enterprise security. Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection provides superior endpoint threat prevention as well as bridges the gap between endpoint security and network security, augmenting next-generation firewalls to provide stronger defense with fewer resources.
Amazon® Web Services has been an advocate for strong cloud security since it launched in 2006. AWS® and its customers employ a shared responsibility model that distributes security roles between the provider and customer. As a public cloud vendor, AWS owns the infrastructure, physical network and hypervisor. The enterprise owns the workload operating system, apps, virtual network, access to their tenant environment/account and the data.
This paper discusses ten points to consider and actively test in your current security i nfrastructure and your future NGFW. Using these as guidelines for cross-functional conversations, you will expand the lens through which you can view your NGFW in order to determine if your potential security investments are easy to implement, alleviate workloads, and offer your organization the best protection and value, today and in the future.
For many organizations, the cloud has become the sole route to market for new application deployment. It affords greater agility and scalability, higher performance, and faster access to innovative technologies, all of which help businesses maintain a competitive edge. As a result, data and applications now reside in a multitude of cloud environments, including private and public clouds, spanning infrastructure, platform and software as a service – IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, respectively. Confidently accelerating the move to the cloud requires consistent, automated protections across multi-cloud deployments that prevent data loss and business disruption. This paper highlights an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause breaches, while enabling organizations to achieve consistent and frictionless cloud protections for multi-cloud environments.
Addressing security and compliance in the cloud requires a rigorous and continuous approach that ensures risks are identified and controlled with speed. Palo Alto Networks® Evident provides continuous security of public cloud infrastructure services, enabling you to deploy applications confidently, knowing the cloud is configured according to your organization’s security requirements.
Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection stops threats on the endpoint and coordinates enforcement with cloud and network security to prevent successful cyberattacks. Traps minimizes endpoint infections by blocking malware, exploits and ransomware. Integration with your security platform delivers additional threat analysis, shared intelligence and automated containment.
This brief discusses the top three considerations for securing traditional and cloud-based data centers, as well as key requirements for cloud security.
Avoid critical mistakes when implementing you Next Generation Firewall. Robust cybersecurity plans must account for sizing, performance, context, and scalability.
