Malware threats continue to evolve, and no single “silver bullet” solution can protect you against all of them. Juggling multiple solutions that operate in silos means more time, resources, and complexity for already-strained security teams. It’s time for a smarter approach.
Aberdeen Group discusses the move to the public cloud and the security shared responsibility model that leverages the strengths of both the public cloud service providers (architecture and infrastructure at scale) and enterprises (applications and data) to provide the enterprise with stronger capabilities than could be achieved going at it alone.
This paper reviews five use cases, ranging from accidental policy violations by an insider to malicious thefts by unknown applications or stolen credentials, and presents the measurable benefits of an integrated security solution and the capabilities of pervasive data protection.
Forrester conducted an online survey of 252 IT security decision makers from the US, the UK, France, and Germany, and our findings suggest that organizations are significantly challenged by overly manual security tools and desire connected security solutions that are fast, accurate, and integrated.
Fileless malware attacks occur by embedding malicious code in scripts or loading malware into memory without writing to disk. With its advanced execution control, the McAfee Application Control whitelisting solution can prevent attacks that bypass file I/O.
McAfee Labs researchers discuss the background and drivers of threat intelligence sharing. We also examine Mirai, which is notable because it detects and infects poorly secured IoT devices, transforming them into bots to attack its targets. Topics: McAfee Labs
