One Step Ahead: End-to-End DDoS Defense for Financial Services

"Motivated by idealistic and monetary goals, well-organized hacker groups have set their sights on financial institutions and are attacking with a vengeance - armed with institutional intelligence and striking with unprecedented persistence. Because of this, every financial services company - whether a multi-million dollar bank or a local credit union - is now a potential target for distributed denial of service (DDoS) threats."

Virsec Systems Inc.

Virsec revolutionizes cyber security by detecting and remediating previously “indefensible” advanced memory-based attacks on critical applications and server endpoints. Using patented, non-signature based technology, Virsec is able to protect applications “full-stack” — from the memory to web layer — without generating false positives, a huge win for security teams drowning in bells and alarms or using needle in a haystack approaches. Our deterministic Trusted Execution™ approach provides runtime application visibility and protection at the CPU-level and in memory to ensure real-time detection and remediation in microseconds. Virsec is unique in its ability to detect file-less, memory corruption and even ROP chain attacks on server endpoints, as well as protecting web applications against web application attacks in one unified platform (ARMAS™). This unprecedented level of cyber security breadth and depth enables enterprises to release applications faster and achieve advanced hacking p

2020 Cyber Security Predictions

whitePaper | January 28, 2020

This year there are some common themes that endure, so we’ll highlight these as “work in progress”. Transformations often take longer than 12 months to be identifi ed as necessary, to be executed and to become established. However, there are other themes emerging through a combination of drivers from audit, compliance security and governance that are now showing signs of infl uencing the way that cyber risks are managed in a much shorter timescale.

Fortinet Security Fabric Enables Digital Innovation

whitePaper | February 5, 2020

Organizations are rapidly adopting digital innovation (DI) initiatives to accelerate their businesses, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and provide better customer experiences. Common initiatives involve moving applications and workflows to the cloud, deploying Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices on the corporate network, and expanding the organization’s footprint to new branch locations. With this evolving infrastructure also come security risks. Organizations must cope with growing attack surfaces, advanced threats, increased infrastructure complexity, and an expanding regulatory landscape. To accomplish their desired DI outcomes while effectively managing risks and minimizing complexities, organizations need to adopt a cybersecurity platform that provides visibility across their environment and a means to manage both security and network operations easily.

22 Cybersecurity Tips for 2022

whitePaper | June 13, 2022

Many cyber-attacks involve ransomware, a form of malicious software or malware, designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid and a decryption key (commonly called a decryptor) is given to the victim. The encryption is virtually unbreakable without the decryption key, and you should not spend valuable time seeking a way around the encryption if you are attacked with it. Ransomware can spread in multiple ways, but most typically, through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. Ransomware can be catastrophic to healthcare and other organizations, preventing critical information and systems for patient care from being accessed, for example.
