New threats have stretched the capabilities of "fat client" security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses.
This white paper discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and...
Two new insider fraud cases showcase the challenges organizations face to detect and prevent crimes by trusted employees. "You need IT controls, but you need more than IT," says researcher Randy Trzeciak.

Organizations must carefully consider patch management in the context of overall IT security because it's so important to achieving sound security. Read about NIST's recommendations on how best to implement patch management.
As users increasingly use mobile devices and operate outside the traditional corporate network, the concept of "endpoint security" has to evolve. And so do your strategies to secure the endpoint from sophisticated adversaries such as advanced persistent threat.

Over the past few years, however, the endpoint computing model has begun to change in several ways. One visible new endpoint computing model is called Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Instead of running the Windows operating system and applications and storing files locally on a physical PC device, VDI serves up...
More malware attacks fueled by Citadel and Reveton are getting attention from federal authorities, which say banking institutions and consumers should be on high alert. What can institutions do to mitigate emerging malware risks?
Heartland Payment Systems, which suffered a massive breach in 2009, is working to enhance POS security at the merchant level. What steps is this processor taking, and what role would it like to see card-issuing banks play?
Two men have been sentenced for defrauding accountholders whose debit cards were compromised in the Michaels point-of-sale breach that hit stores in 20 states. What was their role in an elaborate fraud scheme affecting nearly 100,000 accounts?
Gartner's Peter Firstbrook, to illustrate the vulnerability of IT systems, cites research that pegs at about 400 days the average time a targeted virus remains undetected on a computer. And, he says, that doesn't speak highly of the current offerings from security vendors.
