In my previous blogs, I wrote about how phishing is no longer just an email problem, how the industrialization of phishing is being driven by the easy availability and low cost of phishing toolkits, and how current phishing defenses are being bypassed by attackers.
In my previous phishing blogs, I wrote about the evolution of phishing and the industrialization of phishing that's being driven by the availability and low cost of toolkits.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, phishing attacks are now being created and executed on an industrial scale. Malicious actors are increasingly using highly sophisticated off-the-shelf phishing kits that allow them to deliver very targeted, short-lived attacks. These campaigns direct victims to a phishing web page that's an exact copy of a consumer or enterprise brand's site. This has lowered the barrier to entry for launching phishing attacks.
Phishing has been around for nearly as long as email has, and the perception that phishing tactics have not evolved persists. Many people believe we are still in the era of the easy-to-spot "Nigerian prince" emails, shown below. Underneath that, we see a highly creative, yet not any more technically sophisticated, "Nigerian astronaut" ruse.
Domain name system (DNS) services are often a point of vulnerability for businesses, so DNS security has become a growing concern for many of them.
Our customers are moving more workloads to the cloud. No surprise there. The siren song of agility, scale, and cost savings can't be resisted. But as we highlighted earlier, security fundamentals are key to a successful cloud migration. In fact, we also shared marketectures to successfully migrate apps to the cloud and the top best practices for securing cloud workloads. While there are plenty of areas to dive into across
With the rapid uptake in SaaS applications and the ease of moving enterprise applications from the data center to the cloud, many global companies are transforming the way they connect branch offices. In the past, the conventional approach was to connect all of your locations over an MPLS Wide Area Network (WAN) and then send all branch traffic over that to a regional HQ or even a single global HQ.
There are two types of companies: Those who have been hacked, and those who don't yet know they have been hacked1 With data breaches frequently making the news and causing panic among network administrators, the above statement by former Cisco boss John Chambers in 2015 certainly doesn't seem far-fetched. I don't remember a week in 2018 going by where I wasn't learning of a data breach and how sophisticated the
Managing security configurations for large organizations with locations scattered around the world can be challenging. Likewise, some businesses have multiple operating divisions that are separate entities but all use the same IT infrastructure. As an IT leader, you likely want to have consistency in baseline security and acceptable use policies, yet have regional or line of business security teams have the flexibility to make changes that reflect specific needs in
