Assessing and assigning trust in endpoints is a big challenge enterprises face as they move to the cloud. However, a strategy exists which can protect apps and data across many endpoint scenarios, allowing IT to maintain balance between access and risk.

A hacker exploited an unpatched, 12-month-old flaw in a small Australian defense contractor's IT help desk and stole data for the country's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, among other secrets, the Australian government has warned.
A new House bill proposes that federal regulators work with healthcare providers and insurers as well as technology firms to recommend "voluntary frameworks and guidelines" to improve the cybersecurity of medical devices. But some security experts are calling for stronger mandates.
In response to nation-state attackers targeting its account users, Google reportedly is planning to offer stronger authentication to politicians, corporate executives and other at-risk individuals as part of a service called the Advanced Protection Program.
A zero-day vulnerability in Apple's built-in password manager can be exploited, allowing attackers to steal all stored credentials in clear-text format, a security researcher warns. The flaw affects the latest version of macOS - High Sierra - plus one or more prior versions.
Advanced threats are overwhelming both IT organizational bandwidth and the capabilities of legacy antivirus tactics, particularly as the increasing number of endpoint devices used by employees expands attack surfaces.
How are organizations responding?

Single-target attacks are not 'one size fits all' - they require specialized knowledge and detailed information on the target. Targeted attacks are also dynamic, able to change their behavior and digital 'appearance' during the course of an attack.
It's not a surprise then that many enterprises have already been...
Every endpoint protection technology has its advantages and disadvantages. That's what makes the multi-layered approach so important. If a malicious file happens to get past one layer of security it is backed up by the capabilities of several more layers of defence, each relying on a different style of protection and...
Attackers are increasingly hacking into banks' networks to gain access to the IT infrastructure connected to their ATMs, security experts warn. Attackers push malware onto ATMs that's designed to allow money mules to "jackpot" or "cash out" the machines, then delete itself.
Researchers investigating the CCleaner malware outbreak have had a lucky break: The attackers' backup server shows that they pushed secondary malware onto systems at Intel, VMware, Fujitsu and Asus, among others, as part of what appears to be a very targeted attack campaign.
Freedom of Information requests sent to 430 U.K. local government councils by Barracuda Networks found that at least 27 percent of councils have suffered ransomware outbreaks. Thankfully, almost none have paid ransoms, and good backup practices appear widespread.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year. In it, respondents say their organizations continue to connect new and different types of endpoints, including point-of-sale (POS) devices, printers,...
Continuous monitoring (CM) begets a process of continuous improvement that works to reduce attack surface and improve security posture, according to the 2016 SANS survey on CM. In it, 63% of respondents said CM was improving their security posture.
These improvements are occurring even though continuous monitoring...
