Check Point: Why it’s a Smart Idea to Use Threat Intelligence

When It Comes to Security, Do You Have ‘Evidence-Based Knowledge’?

by Linda Beaton                                       

Recently, I participated in an interesting Twitter chat. One of the questions posed: What keeps you up at night? The responses varied, but the one common thread was that malware is constantly evolving, making things scarily unpredictable. It’s the reason why intelligence is key to protecting your corporate data and assets, as well as staying one step ahead.

Gartner describes threat intelligence as “the product of a process, rather than a series of individual data points.” Their definition: evidence-based knowledge, including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to assets that can be used to inform decisions.

Kaspersky: Trade In and Trade Up Your Security!

TRADE IN AND TRADE UP YOUR SECURITY SOLUTION NOW!

So you want to replace your customers current security software to the latest, industry leading solutions from Kaspersky Lab but you still have time remaining on your current licence? Well great news!

New customers to Kaspersky Lab can trade in your current security solution and benefit from all the features that Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business/ Kaspersky Security for Virtualization has to offer without needing to wait for your license expiry date.

Available on new 2 or 3 year licences of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business and/ or Kaspersky Security for Virtualization, for a limited time you can trade in and get up to 6 months free!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

An example would be that your current security solution is a paid for security license from Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro or Sophos, that runs until 30/06/2016. You would like to switch to Kaspersky Lab for a 3 year term. Kaspersky Lab delivers the license which will be valid from the "purchase date" of this 3 year term plus the additional term on your existing agreement e.g.

  • Current non Kaspersky Lab license valid until: 30/06/2016
  • Purchase date for a new 3 year term on a Kaspersky Lab license: 01/01/2016
  • New license will then run for a total of 3 years + 6 months "free" from 01/01/2016 and expiring on 30/06/2019

You therefore don’t have to pay the 6 months "double cost" for the time your current license is valid, but can benefit from all the award winning technologies of Kaspersky Lab Endpoint Security for Business/ Kaspersky Security for Virtualization right away.

To take advantage of this offer, please quote promotional code "TradeUpMySecurity" on your next applicable Kaspersky Lab order.

For full details of this promotion, including terms and conditions, licensing models and any other questions regarding Kaspersky Lab solutions, please contact your Kaspersky Lab account manager or authorised distributor/ reseller.

F5: SSO: Not Just for Security Anymore

25.  That’s the number of business apps per device CA predicted would be deployed this year.

That’s probably a considerably conservative prediction given the explosive rate at which organisations are building and buying mobile apps. The impetus behind this massive mobile migration is a desirable surge in productivity. Migrating manual processes – inventories, checklists, guided processes, inspections, work orders – to mobile apps may not be as pretty as Angry or Flappy Birds but they do get business done efficiently. To wit, the Canvas 2015 survey found that among organisations tracking this efficiency “17% saved between $25,000-$100,000 annually switching to mobile apps, while 81% indicated cost savings between $1,000-$25,000.”

This seems a solid business case for moving ahead with mobilizing manual business processes ASAP.
