Grazed from A10 Networks

A10 Networks, a Secure Application Services company, today announced the A10 DDoS Protection Cloud, powered by Verisign, and the A10 Thunder 1040 TPS appliance offering advanced on-premise protection. With the availability of the latest A10 DDoS protection solutions, A10 delivers full spectrum enterprise protection to detect and mitigate distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

A10 Networks' hybrid approach to DDoS defenses combines surgical precision on-premise protection with orchestrated cloud scrubbing, delivered in form factors and subscription models that are cost effective. Smart, scalable solutions from A10 to assist with protection against harmful DDoS attacks, helping to ensure availability of enterprise business services while protecting legitimate users on the network.

Unlike other cloud-based DDoS protection services, A10 DDoS Protection Cloud, which is powered by Verisign's cloud-based DDoS Protection Service, is based on legitimate traffic, so enterprises do not pay for the amount of traffic that attacks apply against their network. Traffic diversions, or "swings," to the cloud service are optimized by the on-premise Thunder TPS appliances. The Thunder TPS appliance employs machine learning, traffic profiling and intelligent policy escalation in order to reduce disruption on-premise and alert A10 when redirection to the cloud may be necessary.

The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC), an end-user advocacy group dedicated to accelerating cloud's successful adoption, today published version 3.0 of its Security for Cloud Computing: Ten Steps to Ensure Success paper.

When considering a move to cloud computing, organizations must have a clear understanding of the potential security benefits and risks associated with cloud computing and be able to set realistic expectations with their cloud service providers. The heart of this guide is a list of ten steps designed to help decision-makers evaluate and compare security and privacy offerings from different cloud providers in key areas. The ten steps cover:

Druva Reveals 2017 AWS Cloud Data Protection Survey

Grazed from Druva

Druva, the global leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced the results of its Druva 2017 AWS Cloud Data Protection Survey, which reveals a disconnect between the perceptions of cloud data protection and its reality. The survey solicited insights from IT professionals across 20 industries, including technology, energy, financial and healthcare, regarding the state of Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud adoption, enterprise secondary storage, data protection and archiving needs.

According to results, one of the biggest benefits seen from those who have already moved their data to the cloud is cost savings (59 percent); yet 49 percent of respondents who are considering a move cite cost as the number one barrier. This paradox is indicative of a larger misconception about the capabilities of cloud technology. Despite rising confidence in durability and availability of company data in AWS, concerns remain around storage and usage costs.

VMware and Carbon Black Fundamentally Transform Current Approaches to Data Center and Cloud Security

Grazed from VMware and Carbon Black

VMware, Inc., a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, and Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced an expanded partnership that will help transform current approaches to cloud and data center security. The companies have developed a new joint solution that will dramatically shrink an organization's attack surface, while empowering security teams with automated threat detection and remediation to react faster and more effectively to attacks. Today's announcement expands on a collaboration announced earlier this year, giving VMware AppDefense customers the ability to leverage Carbon Black's Predictive Security Cloud (PSC) reputation services.

As applications become more distributed and dynamic, they have also become more difficult to secure. Traditional security solutions are not flexible enough to keep up with applications as they change over time, leading to breakdowns in security. The majority of attacks causing damage today are not simple malware easily rooted out with "known bad" signatures. They require watching behavior of applications for any deviation from the norm. They hinge on attackers manipulating the executables, processes, and operating system of the endpoint itself. Identifying these threats requires a deep understanding of both application behavior and threat behavior, something that traditional endpoint security products don't possess.
