The Next Step in ID Verification

The Next Step in ID Verification

“Banks Heap Suits on Target over Breach,” read a recent headline of a Wall Street Journal story. By that time, seven financial institutions had already filed class action suits against the retail giant alleging it did not sufficiently protect its customer’s data.

Preventing the New Threat

When most people consider cybersecurity, they think about protecting the information that resides on their computers—sensitive emails, folders or files.

Providing a Healthy Balance

Providing a Healthy Balance

Datacenter traffic is predicted to triple by 2017 with the cloud as the biggest traffic source, according to a recent Cisco Global Cloud Index study.

Raising Concerns

Raising Concerns

Wireless transmission is usually a topic that raises many concerns in the security world. It seems common knowledge nowadays that a wireless network can be easily hacked, and private information can end up on the Internet or someone’s identity can be stolen.

Building a Secure Cloud Environment A secure IT strategy often emerges as a key concern

Building a Secure Cloud Environment

When properly constructed, a cloud infrastructure can offer greater security than a legacy system; however, when poorly constructed, a cloud-based infrastructure introduces risk across the enterprise.

Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs): The Security Tool You Didnt Know You Needed

Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs): The Security Tool You Didnt Know You Needed

Atchison Frazer, CMO for KEMP Technologies, talks hackers and other security attacks being a source of server downtime and how you can use ADCs to protect your network(s.)

Next Revolution of IP in Security

Next Revolution of IP in Security

It is no exaggeration to say that network video technology has revolutionized the video surveillance market, and the access control industry is on the verge of a similar revolution.

The Growth of IT Security

The Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) market is growing fast so much that industry analysts predict it will be worth over $5 billion within the next three years. Why did this take so long to arrive? After all, virtual desktops have been around since the 1990s.



Cyber Security Insurance

People have been talking about the inevitable rise of cyber security insurance for more than a decade now. Cyber attacks have grown into a significant business risk, and an important component of reducing this type of risk is via transfer through insurance policies.

Advanced Persistent Threats

Advanced Persistent Threats

An Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) is a piece of malware that is distinguished by the sophistication of its code, the vectors cybercriminals are choosing for attack and the perseverance with which they’re going after their targets.

Your Vendors: Cold Beer or Malicious Attack Vector?

Your Vendors: Cold Beer or Malicious Attack Vector?

The five golden rules of developing a strong network security strategy for managing vendor access.

Protect Against Attack

Protect Against Attack

The one thing consistent about malware attacks is that they continue to change quite a bit as time goes by. Initially, many attacks were unstructured and untargeted, indiscriminately honing in on large numbers of hosts in an attempt to find their vulnerabilities. The outcome of these initial attacks was often simple defacement or destruction of data with very few of the overall volume of these attacks covered in the news.

Making the Choice - Fixed costs, customized solutions and user convenience - determining factors in buying physical identity and access management

Making the Choice

The migration of physical security technology to a network platform has made it easier and more convenient for organizations to integrate the various modalities of physical security into a unified configuration to better safeguard their employees, visitors, premises and material/intellectual property.

More than a byte

More than a Byte

Cybercrime is on the rise, and sensitive, corporate information is one of the top targets of external and internal attacks.

Diving into IP Surveillance

In the security world, when a company is making the leap from installing traditional, analog, CCTV cameras to IP surveillance, this “thinkahead” strategy is all the more wise.

Accelerating Detection and Response

Last spring, in late March, regional grocer Schnucks Markets reported that the credit card data of more than 2 million customers was stolen by cybercriminals.

On The Fast Track

On the Fast Track

Cloud computing has kicked off the next big wave in business computing. It offers many benefits including business agility, security, scalability and reduced administration, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for any size and type of company.

There is no question that better methods of authentication are needed

Achieve Assured Authentication

Biometrics has a central role to play in today’s authentication solutions, so it is important to revisit and review the many myths and misperceptions associated with this technology.

On the Cutting Edge

Staying on top of a rapidly evolving technology, such as video surveillance, can be challenging.

Infrastructure as a Service

Infrastructure as a Service

In the 1980s, a keynote speaker at a Novell Users Group meeting said, “All things will become IP.” It was almost certain the industry would adopt Asynchronous Transfer Mode, or ATM, as a more secure and deterministic networking technology.
