28 Feb 2017 New Zealand Utility Bolsters Security Posture, Cost Savings, and Productivity Gains With Palo Alto Networks [61161]
Palo Alto Networks , February 28th, 2017

Palo Alto Networks announced that The Lines Company Ltd, which owns and operates an electricity distribution network on the North Island of New Zealand, moved to the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform as part of a comprehensive revitalisation of its IT infrastructure. The Lines Company's previous environment relied on firewalls that were complex to manage and failed to protect the utility from today's cyberthreats. The decision to use Palo Alto Networks slashed network bandwidth consumption by 40 percent, improved IT staff productivity, and helped the company to avoid $50,000 in software upgrades.

30 Jan 2017 Why You're Doing Cybersecurity Risk Measurement Wrong [60258]
Dark Reading, January 30th, 2017

"Measuring risk isn't as simple as some make it out to be, but there are best practices to help you embrace the complexity in a productive way. Here are five...

Broadly speaking, cybersecurity is risk identification and risk mitigation in the cyber domain. Measuring risk quantitatively is good because it helps security teams measure their capabilities somewhat objectively, which helps everyone make better decisions. For example, when deciding whether to upgrade all your firewalls or invest in organization-wide two-factor authentication, that decision should be based, in part, on what risk exists now and what risk will be after you implement a change. It may surprise you but people are generally pretty bad at this, resulting in things like transportation disasters, major breaches, economic bubbles, wars, and bad movies..."

13 Dec 2016 The New CISO Imperative: Solving The Information Management Paradox [58978]
HelpNet Security, December 13th, 2016

"According to Cybersecurity Ventures' Cybersecurity Market Report, worldwide spending on cybersecurity is predicted to top $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021. However, in the drive to become more cyber resilient in 2017, organizations are extending risk management that is traditionally based on parametric measures (i.e., data loss prevention and firewalls) towards information stewardship - the proper identification, categorization and deletion of their own content, regardless of where it is saved..."

04 Dec 2016 Linux Security Made Simple [58494]
Datamation, November 23rd, 2016

"From the revelations of Edward Snowden to the potential problems with the Internet of Things and the latest malware, security and privacy are constantly in the news," notes Bruce Byfield in Datamation.

"The trouble is, while everyone is concerned about security and privacy, few know what to what to do about them. Fortunately, Linux has endless tools to address these problems without requiring that everyone become an expert.

Conditioned by Windows, most Linux users think in terms of reactive measures, such as anti-virus software and firewalls. However, the most effective tools are usually architectural, making changes to the operating system that prevent or contain intrusions in the first place..."

30 Nov 2016 Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services Overview [58645]
Oracle White paper

"An easy-to-access computing utility, with on-demand compute, storage, and network resources, has always been the promise of cloud computing. While server and storage virtualization technologies have been available for some time, network virtualization now adds another dimension of agility and scalability to cloud infrastructures.

By virtualizing the network, the enterprise data center avoids having to configure fixed network silos with specialized service appliances. Instead, the network, subnetworks, and network services can be configured and reconfigured as needed in software. In a cloud-enabled data center, essential network functions, such as firewalls, network address translation (NAT), load balancing, and virtual private network (VPN), must be as virtualized as compute and storage resources. Oracle SDN virtual network services fulfill this requirement..."
