Qualys Cloud Platform: One stack to consolidate traditional enterprise security and compliance solutions and secure the digital transformation  > Download Whitepaper
As organizations digitally transform business processes to boost agility and efficiency, IT environments become distributed, elastic and hybrid — a challenge for security teams. CISOs are no longer well served by conventional security products designed to protect traditional, welldefined corporate perimeters where most assets are on premises.

With the adoption of cloud, mobility, virtualization, and other innovations, IT infrastructure frontiers have been pushed out, blurred, and even erased. To regain visibility and control over these new amorphous IT environments, CISOs often resort to accumulating heterogeneous point tools, an ineffective and counterproductive approach.

Because it’s difficult to integrate, manage and scale a plethora of disparate security products, this strategy results in operational silos, increased costs and data fragmentation. Worse, it leaves organizations exposed to opportunistic hackers who take advantage of attack vectors created by the speed, openness and interconnectedness of modern IT.

Cloud-Based IT Asset Inventory: A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR INFOSEC INFRASTRUCTURE  > Download Whitepaper
Complete, unobstructed visibility of your IT environment is the foundation for effective cybersecurity. Without a full, detailed inventory of all your IT assets, your InfoSec team won’t be able to properly protect your organization because the things that pose the highest risk are the ones that you don’t know are there. For a long time, this basic requirement was fairly simple to fu lfill. Network perimeters were well-defined and IT environments were ti ghtly encapsulated. Accounting for and monitoring all the hardware, s oftware and networking elements in these self-contained and sealed IT environments was straightforward.

The MITRE Corporation Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK™) Matrix provides a model for cyber adversary behavior, reflecting various phases of an adversary’s lifecycle and the platforms they are known to target. Initiated five years ago, it is designed to help determine which technologies work or fail, identify gaps to improve security posture and processes, prioritize work on detecting and deterring techniques, and to evaluate new security technology. ATT&CK is useful for understanding security risk against known adversary behavior, planning security improvements, and verifying defenses work as expected. The goal of ATT&CK is to break down and classify attacks in a consistent and clear manner that can make it easier to compare them to find how the attacker exploited networks and endpoints in a successful compromise.

EMPLOYEES QUIT. DATA LEAVES. Be sure your trade secrets don’t go with them.  > Download Whitepaper
Departing employees account for more than half of all insider threat incidents. Ask three quitters, and two of them will openly admit to taking data with them when they leave.2 The third one might just be less honest about it. Quitters are walking out the door with valuable information — from source code and CAD files, to financial documents and customer lists. Worse, organizations aren’t realizing it until months later — often when a competitor comes out with a copycat product or steals clients.
