When it comes to selecting the right endpoint and mobile security apps, IT and security leaders face many uncertainties, such as:

  • Is there one vendor that addresses all mobile security challenges?
  • Why is it difficult to discover, try and use third-party apps?
  • How do I know the app has been vetted for enterprise use?
  • Will the app be compatible with my existing investments?

It’s a stressful endeavor to track down the right unified endpoint management (UEM) tools for the job, let alone find an easy way to try them out and decide whether they’re the right fit. Even once you’ve narrowed down your options, how do you know you can trust them or that they’ll work side by side with the apps you already use?

MaaS360 Partner App Ecosystem Now Available on IBM Security App Exchange

To help customers overcome these common hurdles, IBM MaaS360 with Watson has expanded and simplified its partner program. Today, IBM announced that new endpoint security partner apps are available on the IBM Security App Exchange.

Did Brazil DSL Modem Attacks Change Device Security?

From 2011 to 2012, millions of Internet users in Brazil fell victim to a massive attack against vulnerable DSL modems. By configuring the modems remotely, attackers could redirect users to malicious domain name system (DNS) servers. Victims trying to visit popular websites (Google, Facebook) were instead directed to imposter sites. These rogue sites then installed malware on victims' computers.According to a report from Kaspersky Lab Expert Fabio Assolini citing statistics from Brazil's Computer Emergency Response Team, the attack ultimately infected…

Who Carries the Weight of a Cyberattack?

Almost immediately after a company discovers a data breach, the finger-pointing begins. Who is to blame? Most often, it is the chief information security officer (CISO) or chief security officer (CSO) because protecting the network infrastructure is their job. Heck, it is even in their job title: they are the security officer. Security is their responsibility. But is that fair – or even right? After all, the most common sources of data breaches and other cyber incidents are situations caused…

Transitioning to Quantum-Safe Encryption

With their vast increase in computing power, quantum computers promise to revolutionize many fields. Artificial intelligence, medicine and space exploration all benefit from this technological leap — but that power is also a double-edged sword. The risk is that threat actors could abuse quantum computers to break the key cryptographic algorithms we depend upon for the safety of our digital world. This poses a threat to a wide range of critical areas. Fortunately, alternate cryptographic algorithms that are safe against…

Securing Your SAP Environments: Going Beyond Access Control

Many large businesses run SAP to manage their business operations and their customer relations. Security has become an increasingly critical priority due to the ongoing digitalization of society and the new opportunities that attackers exploit to achieve a system breach.
