Live from RSA 2011

Posted February 16, 2011    Morey Haber

It is another cold and windy week in San Francisco and RSA 2011 is more impressive this year than recent events. With the economy finally beginning to recover, trade show events are feeling the impact with more floor space, higher attendance,  cooler giveaways, and quality of new solutions presented by companies highlighting investments in development.  Based on a dozen or so meetings with analysts, peers, and clients, I’d rather not bore you with meeting details but rather highlight some of the next generation security solutions I’ve seen on the show floor:

Emulex is a hardware NIC vendor that was showcasing a new fiber channel network adapter that does all of the data encryption on the NIC using a separate CPU verses the host OS and CPU. This off loads heavy data encryption requirements from the asset CPU to the NIC to optimize application and OS performance. This is a nice to have for application intensive solutions where every percentage point of CPU is crucial.

RSA launched a new solution this week called RSA Incident Management. This new solution allows integration between RSA Envision (and other tools) and RSA Archer Platformand provides a clear escalation path for events into an eGRC solution based on severity and relevance to the business for risk and remediation evaluation. This tool allows solutions like Retinato have vulnerability assessment findings to be escalated into the Archer eGRC solution for a business impact analysis.

FireEyehas a new appliance that features a Real-time Attachment and URL Analysis engine that evaluates e-mails for zero-hour malware and enables users to detect and stop socially engineered attacks. This goes far behind traditional mail antivirus scanning and represents a new twist on solving malware problems when no signatures are available.

After a few days at the conference already, I think 2011 will be a fantastic year for the security industry and hopefully a great year to get ahead of the malicious activity occurring against our businesses and livelihood.

There were 6 key principles, or recommendations, that Gartner suggested were important drivers towards a great cyber resiliency posture. I commented more than once during the conference that many of these things were not new. They are all important recommendations that are best when placed together and given to senior management and the board – a critical element of organisations that desperately need to “get it”.

On Demand Webinar: Security Risk of Mac OS X in the Enterprise

Posted August 20, 2015    BeyondTrust Software

In the last several years, Mac administrators have come to realize that they may be just as vulnerable to exploits and malware as most other operating systems. New malware and adware is released all the time, and there have been serious vulnerabilities patched by Apple in the past several years, some of which may afford attackers full control of your systems.
