The Aruba Sensor plugs directly into an AC outlet and can hear other Aruba Beacons within a 25-meter range and reports relevant data over Wi-Fi to the cloud-based platform.

Gigamon adds context-aware visibility to standard NetFlow metadata generation

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.

RSA finds Previously Undetectable RAT

RSA Research has published a report about GlassRAT, a previously undetectable Remote Access Tool that was discovered by the RSA Incident Response Team and investigated by RSA Research during an engagement with a multi-national enterprise. While the malware was not detectable by endpoint antivirus products, RSA Security Analytics was able to identify and alert on its network traffic and RSA ECAT subsequently identified the malware.  

Evidence suggests that the tool is being used as part of a targeted campaign focused on Chinese nationals in commercial organisations. The RSA blog provides further details and access to the full report.

In July 2015, RSA commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how the capabilities of SIEM and security analytics solutions stack up against the current threat landscape. To do this, Forrester conducted a survey of 180 security and risk professionals from countries around the world, as well as interviewed security professionals responsible for security monitoring at their organisations.  Read the key findings and the report in full below.
