The Current Chaos of Zero Trust Architecture

Everyone seems to agree that organizations need to move to a zero trust architecture, but zero trust in action currently ranges from a single area that can be “zero trust-like” to a complete environment being considered a zero trust architecture… But there aren’t actually agreed upon standards as of yet.

The Biggest Issue with Cybersecurity

The biggest issue with cybersecurity is budget. Every day, businesses work to maximize their bottom line—to do more with less, as it were.  This is an old way of looking at business, and it leads to what a friend of mine coined “technology debt.”  Technology debt can affect much more than application performance or your capital expenditures (CAPEX).  [...]

Understanding Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS)

Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) is a dangerous type of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provided as an easy-to-use cyber-criminal attack platform. With this cyberattack, actors gain illegitimate access to companies’ information technology resources and proceed to block legitimate access while demanding payment for the release of resources and data that rightfully belongs to the business. Victims are often notified via a lock screen where a [...]

Pairing Cisco SD-WAN and Gigamon for Full Network Visibility

Network visibility is more important than it has ever been before. In order to ward off cyberattacks, you need full visibility to monitor, manage, and protect your environments. Unfortunately, there isn’t one single monitoring tool that gives you full visibility into both your local and wide area networks.

Protecting Your Company Against Spear Phishing Attacks

When it comes to protecting your company’s data and infrastructure, security products are not enough to prevent breaches. No matter how much you spend on these products or layer and configure them, at the end of the day, a product does not equal protection—especially when you enter the human variable into the equation. So, how do you protect [...]

Securing the Cloud with a Web Application Firewall (WAF)

While moving to the cloud has many benefits, companies find they still need to optimize virtual environments for realistic ROI, meet current and future demand, and secure critical assets. Because of this, many turn to Web Application Firewalls (WAF) [...]

SOC-as-a-Service: The Arctic Wolf Approach to Cybersecurity

As an SMB, you likely have limited security staff. Your lean IT team does it’s best to provide coverage, but they’re already overwhelmed. You don’t have the time or resources to hire a comprehensive dedicated security team to provide SOC-as-a-Service. As a result, you have no one to monitor your firewalls, examine antivirus, or analyze your security structure. [...]

Investing in security is expensive, and it’s often tempting to focus first on your current profitability. But not investing in security costs organizations even more. What is the takeaway concerning security vs short-term profitability?

Cybersecurity Insurance vs IRR as Part of IT

We could spend this time discussing the merits of cybersecurity insurance vs IRR (Incident Response and Remediation) protocols. But we would be writing about a false dichotomy. A strong cybersecurity approach requires alignment between prevention and coverage. Unfortunately, a lot of people think along these lines instead: “If I have a good plan in place, then I’ll be [...]
