Today’s SIEM solutions gather, analyze, and present a holistic view of information from network and security devices like identity and access management applications, vulnerability management and policy compliance tools, operating system, database and application logs, external threat data and important information from endpoint security applications such as Absolute Data & Device Security (DDS), formerly Absolute Computrace.
Earlier this Summer, Absolute unveiled a new brand identity that reflects security and innovation as our core offering. The brand sets a clear purpose for Absolute and gives us greater focus on our core business of device and data security. To reinforce the shift in our brand identity, which went live across all corporate assets in July, we transformed the Absolute headquarters in Vancouver as well.
At Absolute, we are always listening to our customers and gathering feedback on the challenges they face within their IT environments. Many of our customers have reported that Microsoft SCCM is an important component within their IT security and management stack.
Healthcare IT is undergoing a complex and challenging transformation. Today healthcare IT departments must not only keep up with ever-changing regional and global regulations surrounding protected health information (PHI), they also have to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals and situations that could lead to data breaches—even if they’re accidental.
Today’s healthcare organizations are under pressure to increase the affordability, quality and efficiency of patient care, all while streamlining costs and staying compliant with ever-changing regulatory legislation. Those demands alone are enough to strain resources to the breaking point. However, recent studies show that protecting patient information is one of the biggest challenges that modern health practices face.
Absolute announced today a new collaboration with RSA to offer enhanced endpoint data collection and remediation. As part of the RSA Ready Technology Partnership program, this effort is designed to deliver seamless interoperability between Absolute and RSA Security Analytics, an industry leading advanced threat detection and forensics platform.
PwC recently conducted a survey of organizations in the UK about cyber security incidents. In the 2015 Information Security Breaches Survey, commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), it’s clear that security breaches continue to rise and also that the average cost per breach is rising even more quickly.
According to the 2015 Cyber Security Intelligence Index compiled by IBM, there are more successful cybersecurity incidents than ever before. Between 2013 and 2014, the number of security events dropped by 36%, but the number of resultant security incidents remained static, showing a greater success rate. Even more troubling, more “bad guys” are insiders than ever before.
