The disparity between decadesold, tried-and-true equipment and today’s high-tech machinery is wider than ever. Nothing has affected the pace of change as much as digitalization. Surging adoption of smart equipment, the cloud, and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) is increasing asset and system connectivity and introducing new ways to manage assets of all types and ages.

    According to the 2018 SANS Endpoint Security Survey, more than 80 percent of known breaches involve an endpoint. That’s why finding the most effective endpoint protection has never been more important. Unfortunately, with hundreds of options on the market, all claiming the same “next-gen” features, choosing the best endpoint security for your organization can be challenging.

    The CrowdStrike Endpoint Protection Buyers Guide was created to help you meet that challenge by outlining the critical features and capabilities you should look for in true next-gen endpoint protection. This guide outlines the five elements that CrowdStrike recommends as key to optimal endpoint protection and offers details on how to assess their effectiveness.

    Read the Endpoint Protection Buyers Guide to learn:

    • Why you should ensure that the solution you choose includes these five key elements: prevention (NGAV), detection (EDR), managed threat hunting (MDR), threat intelligence, and IT hygiene and vulnerability assessment
    • Details on the role each of these elements plays in ensuring your organization’s security
    • The evaluation criteria you should apply and questions to ask to ensure a solution is truly effective
    • How the cloud-native CrowdStrike Falcon® next-gen endpoint protection platform unifies these key elements in one lightweight agent, delivering true next-gen protection that stops the breach

      The 2020 Global Threat Report is one of the industry’s most highly anticipated reports on today’s most significant cyber threats and adversaries. It features a comprehensive overview of the global investigations and deep analysis conducted by the CrowdStrike® Intelligence team, the Falcon OverWatch™ managed threat hunting team and the CrowdStrike Services incident response team throughout 2019.

      The report covers real-world scenarios and observed trends in attackers’ ever-evolving tactics, techniques and procedures, and offers practical recommendations to protect your organization in the coming year. Here are some highlights:

      • Big game hunting (BGH)escalated, and ransom demands soared into the millions, causing unparalleled disruption.
      • Cybercriminals are weaponizing sensitive datato increase pressure on ransomware
      • The eCrime ecosystem continues to evolve, mature and develop increasing specialization.
      • Outside of BGH, an increase was observed in eCrime campaigns targeting financial institutionsaround the world.
      • The trend toward malware-free tactics accelerated, with malware-free attacks surpassing the volume of malware attacks.
      • State-sponsored targeted intrusions continued to gather intelligenceand promote division within communities, and possible collaboration with sophisticated eCrime adversaries was observed.

        THREAT LANDSCAPE: Mobile malware

        Attacker groups and individual cybercriminals are increasingly targeting mobile devices

        The maturity level of mobile security solutions is lagging behind traditional platforms such as desktop computers and servers. As a result, malicious actors have begun to diversify their ways of targeting mobile devices to achieve their targets and achieving their objectives.

        In this report, we will look at how motivated people are targeting information and money, like specific attacker proofs and criminals, and how these threats are widespread. Knowing the types of mobile malware your organization may be facing now will give you hints on how to best protect in the future.

        In this report:

        • Why attacks targeting mobile platforms are increasingly adopted by a variety of criminals and targeted attacker groups
        • Why mobile devices often do not have the same level of security surveillance as desktop computers and servers
        • Potential future changes in mobile malware and ways to better protect organizations from increasing mobile threats

            In this day and age of cyber risk and data privacy regulations, automated third-party questionnaires are a must. Organizations can no longer simply hire vendors without proof of a strong cyber posture, and a comprehensive questionnaire can demonstrate that vendors’ internal security policies are up to par.

            Yet not all questionnaires are the same. The benefits of automated questionnaires can vary, depending on the solution. What features should CISOs be sure are included in their security questionnaires? This guide covers the top six, including:</p>

            • Scalability
            • Context-based questions
            • Customization

              In today’s perilous cyber world, companies must carefully check their vendors’ cyber posture, and the initial vetting of any third party typically begins with a comprehensive security questionnaire.</p>

              But these can be a headache, because many questionnaires include hundreds of questions, and many of them are irrelevant. A lot of companies would prefer to ask less questions, but don’t know what are the critical questions they have to ask

              What are some of the matters that should be addressed to determine if vendors have a strong cyber posture? This guide covers 10 important questions to consider, including:

              • Does customer data leave the vendor’s production systems under any circumstances?
              • Does the vendor support single sign-on?
              • Does the vendor have an employee security awareness program?

                As we continue to tackle these challenges, the problems are getting more serious.

                On average, each company finds 870 CVEs daily with 960 assets.
                However, there is no time and resources to repair all of these.
                More than ever, you need to know what to prioritize based on risk.

                  Traditional vulnerability management tools cannot handle today's complex IT environments.
                  The reason is that it cannot provide a real-time, unified view of the attack surface.
                  Instead of letting them know about the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to your organization,
                  The problem is that you only need to send large amounts of data.
                  Risk-based vulnerability management gives you fundamental visibility into your entire business environment. And you know exactly which vulnerabilities to fix first.
                  Use machine learning to go beyond CVSS assessments and uncover potential vulnerabilities can be real threats.
                  Considering how vulnerabilities are being exploited in real-world attacks and how important your assets are to your business,
                  Prioritize remediation.

                    Are there too many vulnerabilities to manage?

                    Try a new approach.

                    The security team is addressing vulnerabilities beyond the capabilities of the team.

                    Distributing limited useful resources too thinly quickly becomes inefficient,

                    It can lead to burnout.

                    The end result is wasting valuable time repairing vulnerabilities with little or no risk.

                    By implementing risk-based vulnerability management, you can automate the prioritization process.

                    Vulnerabilities that have a high risk of being exploited,
