Laying the IT Security Foundation

Cover
Not too long ago the battle for the security of the enterprise was fought and won over the operating system. Whoever controlled the OS had the best access to systems across the network and data it contained. Hackers clearly understood the OS to be a venue riddled with vulnerabilities. As vendors built inherently more secure updates to the OS and security practitioners changed their protection methods, hackers started looking for other vulnerabilities. Now security practitioners must not only worry about the OS layer, but also the hectic and malleable application layer. In order to gain firm control, organizations must develop an approach that thoroughly protects both.

This white paper shows how in today's evolving threat landscape the proper IT security foundation that proactively addresses the root cause of attacks must be put into place, so threats such as Conflicker can be prevented.
