SYS-CON Events announced today that Venafi, the Immune System for the
InternetTM and the leading provider of Next Generation Trust Protection, will
exhibit at @DevOpsSummit at 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take
place on November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa
Venafi is the Immune System for the InternetTM that protects the foundation
of all cybersecurity - cryptographic keys and digital certificates - so they
can't be misused by bad guys in attacks. In today's connected world,
cybercriminals want to gain trusted status and remain undetected, which makes
keys and certificates a prime target. Unfortunately, most security systems
blindly trust keys and certificates, allowing bad guys to use them to hide in
encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data. As the
Immune System for the Internet, Venafi pa... (more)

Multi-Layer DDoS Mitigation Strategies
As DDoS attacks evolve to become more sophisticated and complex, they have
also become much more difficult to combat and block. To protect customer
applications from these damaging and costly incursions and safeguard
mission-critical services, a multi-layer mitigation strategy should be
employed. This strategy offers protection in several different ways:
mitigating attacks from the server level to the application level as well as
securing both the Linux OS and firewall layers. Using o... (more)
A data breach could happen to anyone. Data managed by your company is
valuable to someone, no matter what the data is. Everything has a price tag
on the dark web. It is especially true when it is customer data, such as
personal and payment card details.
When your customers' data turns up somewhere unexpected on the Internet, you
may feel the world is collapsing around you. People start tweeting about the
hack, angry customers phone in, and Brian Krebs publishes his first article.
Your organization switches to an emergency mode to handle the situation. It
is the time when your in... (more)
Organizations are experiencing a new emphasis when it comes to cybersecurity.
They are moving from securing the perimeter to securing the data within it,
which is the result of the proliferation of connected devices in
organizations today: smartphones, tablets and the IoT. Organizations used to
focus their efforts on keeping attackers outside the perimeter, because just
a few years ago, the network perimeter was much more static and limited.
Today, the perimeter is everywhere - and constantly moving.
Furthermore, hackers have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to breach
Opining about the future of AI at the recent Brilliant Minds event at
Symposium Stockholm, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt rejected warnings
from Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about the dangers of AI, saying, “In the
case of Stephen Hawking, although a brilliant man, he’s not a computer
scientist. Elon is also a brilliant man, though he too is a physicist, not a
This absurd dismissal of Musk and Hawking was in response to an absurd
question about “the possibility of an artificial superintelligence trying
to destroy mankind in the near future.” Schmidt... (more)
Six Tips for Securing Privileged Accounts
Insider threats are on the rise more than ever. It's a malicious activity
that originates from users within an organization, as opposed to attacks like
DDoS that come from the outside. Cyber hackers of this kind get inside the
system to steal intellectual property from the company via user credentials.
They can use a variety of techniques like phishing links, password brute
force, password scanning, keyloggers and many others to get their foot in the
door of the enterprise network.
Once an attacker compromises one employee's account, they... (more)
