Secure Code and the Role of Software Assurance

With a spate of recent breaches taking place at well-known companies including Target, Home Depot and Sony, organizations must reevaluate the security of the code running within the enterprise.

White Paper on Cyber Security Securing Video Surveillance Devices to Close Network Vulnerabilities

whitePaper | February 19, 2020

We live in an increasingly connected world, where more and more devices and systems are networked and shared with other systems. Convenience is a main driver behind this trend, as people have come to expect the ability to connect to and control devices and systems anywhere, anytime.

Because each device is an endpoint for networks, they introduce the potential to become entry points for hackers and others with malicious intents. In fact, in many of the most high-profile data breaches that have occurred recently, hackers were able to access corporate networks through POS, HVAC and other networked systems that failed to provide an adequate level of security to prevent these types of breaches.
