Pathfinder Report: Machine Learning Raises Security Teams to the Next Level
Machine learning is all around us, enriching our online lives every day. We see it with our own eyes when search engines accurately predict what we’re looking for after we type only a few letters. We feel it protecting our bank accounts evaluating credit card transactions for signs of fraud. We notice it in selections of articles and ads in online newspapers. We no longer think twice about these conveniences; in fact, it’s hard to imagine online life without machine learning.

In relation to cybersecurity, machine learning has been changing the game as a means of managing the massive amounts of data within corporate environments. However, machine learning lacks the innately human ability to creatively solve problems and intellectually analyze events. It has been said time and again that people are a company’s greatest asset.

City Proactively Blocks More Threats with Less Work, Saves 40 Hours Weekly with McAfee ENS
Gothenburg, a Swedish metropolitan area of 1.1 million people, recently migrated 35,000 desktops across all city departments to McAfee ENS. Most of the nodes migrated from McAfee VirusScan Enterprise to the McAfee ENS Threat Prevention module and added the ENS Web Control module. Some desktops also received the ENS firewall module, which provides improved Host Intrusion Prevention (HIPS). Migration of all 43 departments took one month from start to finish, including one week of planning and communications. Find out more about this transition and Gothenburg's partnership with McAfee.
 
No More Ransomware — One Year On
One year on. It is fair to say that the No More Ransom project not only exceeded our expectations, but simply blew these initial expectations out of the water. A collaboration between six partners (McAfee, EC3, Dutch Police, Kaspersky Lab, AWS and Barracuda) has now grown to include more than 100 partners across the public and private sector. We often hear people talk about Public-Private Partnerships, but here is a true example of that commitment in action.
 
Connected Cars: How One Vulnerability Can Turn Cybercriminals into Backseat Drivers
Whether it’s turning the music up a little, or turning down the AC – when you’re in your own car, you’re the driver in all senses of the word. Well, usually. Now, with the recent boom in connected cars, cybercriminals may soon be a backseat driver, only they’re not executing commands from the back row. They have the capability to remotely track you as you drive, or even take control of the settings all due to this recent explosion of connected cars — and vulnerabilities within those cars that have yet to be addressed.
