Harvest Season: Why Cyberthieves Want Your Compute Power

What’s the hottest commodity cyberthieves are going after these days? Credit card numbers? Medical records? Politicians’ emails? Those may be big, attractive targets.

Hybrid Cloud Creates New Risks

The hybrid data center is rapidly becoming a way of life for large enterprises. Security has to keep up. It is no longer enough to “guard the border,” especially in a hybrid infrastructure in which the border keeps shifting. Security specialists need to step up their threat detection and response capabilities within the data center. In a hybrid world, that means finding security solutions designed to mitigate threats across multiple types of environments – physical or virtual, on-premise or cloud – and deliver centrally managed, consistent protection to data center assets no matter where they reside.

Black Friday Sales Rush Puts Spotlight on Data Centre Security

E-retailers are coming up to the biggest shopping period in the year as the annual Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events at the end of November slide into the December holiday season. In the UK, shoppers spent more than £3 billion over the weekend last year with many of those sales coming online. It’s clearly a fantastic revenue making opportunity for e-commerce providers. But it also represents a great window of opportunity that hackers could exploit to steal valuable customer personal and financial data. Cybercriminals love Black Friday as it allows them to go unnoticed in the increased volumes of transactions and internet traffic.

Developing Advanced Data Centre Security for Under Fire Healthcare Organisations

British healthcare organisations, like their counterparts in the US and Europe, are currently facing a deluge of ransomware that threatens to overwhelm systems. Widely reported figures gleaned from an FoI request reveal nearly half (47%) of NHS Trusts in England have been infected over the past year. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Ransomware is one of many online threats facing healthcare IT bosses coming to terms with the fact patient data is increasingly highly sought after on the dark web.

The mission criticality of IT systems, rigorous compliance requirements and often stretched resources make securing these environments even more challenging. That’s why IT buyers need to consider a new approach designed to focus on east-west traffic inside the data centre.

Using Deception to Speed up Security Incident Response

When a security incident is detected in the data center, time is of the essence. The longer it takes to respond to an incident, the greater the potential damage. Yet even with the best planning, incident response is often slowed by uncertainty, due largely to the high volume of security alerts analysts have to deal with.

Distributed deception technology for the data center has the potential to tilt the playing field in favor of the security team, not only by accelerating incident response times but also by improving the effectiveness of security measures to combat breaches.
