Security has become increasingly complex as the amount of data on the network increases and cyber criminals become more sophisticated. Often, security appliances on the network are fed too much traffic and this not only reduces their effectiveness, but it also means analysis of the traffic can result in a high number of false positives. In order to simplify and automate policy enforcement, Gigamon has enhanced the security capabilities of its GigaVUE-OS by providing context-aware metadata information in the NetFlow/IPFIX format. By generating metadata, Gigamon’s latest functionality ensures security tools on the network are able to perform more efficiently, and also have the potential to detect threats far more quickly through the high-value, contextual data Gigamon can provide. What’s more, the new metadata record generation now includes HTTP Response Codes that can be used by security tools to detect whether a server has been compromised and is redirecting a user to a malicious website or is unavailable because it is the target of a Distributed Denial of Service attack.More Information
IF A BREACH IS INEVITABLE, WHAT NOW?
Even with the best cyber defences, thanks to human error, faults and failings it seems reasonable to assume that bad actors may be in your customers’ networks.
The latest thinking on cybersecurity has moved on from a “moat and castle” approach to one that accepts that breaches will occur. The focus has shifted to detecting and minimising the amount of “dwell time” a bad actor has inside networks.
In a new ‘Cyber Dwell Time and Lateral Movement ‘ whitepaper from Raytheon|Websense, you can learn more about this new security hypothesis and how it may be applied to protect your customers against internal and external threats. And, don’t forget to share the whitepaper with your customers!

As billions of devices come online, it will be critical to protect the keys and certificates we use for authentication, validation, and privileged access control.
As technology becomes more interconnected with the Internet of Things, we should expect to see more insidious hacks like those demonstrated at Black Hat USA this past summer that will -- at some point in the near future -- strike close to home. It’s one thing when your company gets hacked and quite another when your pacemaker, commercial airline, or traffic light control and coordination system gets pwned because of security vulnerabilities in IoT devices.
