The Threat Lab is a group of dedicated threat researchers committed to helping you stay ahead of the bad guys by providing in-depth analysis of the top security threats to your network. The team analyzes data from WatchGuard’s Firebox Feed, internal and partner threat intelligence, and a research honeynet, to provide insightful analysis about the top threats on the Internet.
What types of malware do we catch most often in the wild? Which network services do attackers commonly target? What are the most popular attacks in different regions of the world? Join Corey Nachreiner, CTO, and Marc Laliberte, Information Security Threat Analyst, on July 26th as they explore their key findings from the first quarter of 2017.
With everything from children’s toys to thermostats connecting to the Internet, it should come as no surprise that the average home has no less than seven IoT devices in use every day. But as pressure grows to release new products faster and faster, we’re all left to wonder: is security really a priority? Needing an answer, WatchGuard’s Threat Lab launched an ongoing project to test some of these connected devices and determine for ourselves how secure they really are.
Join Marc Laliberte, information security threat analyst, and Ben Brobak, technical product manager, on June 29 as they analyze the surprising results of this project and share their best tips for defense.
The global cyberattack that corrupted hundreds of thousands of computer systems on May 12th had a face, name, and price tag that we’ve seen all too often in recent years: Ransomware. With the stakes – and costs – of a ransomware attack higher than ever, is your business prepared and protected? Join WatchGuard and security training experts KnowBe4 on June 1st for an in-depth look at the best tactics for ransomware defense.
Small and mid-sized businesses are a driving force behind cloud adoption, and it’s no wonder: cloud benefits are BIG, with substantial cost savings around hardware, software, paper, storage, and automations.
But for all the convenience that moving to the cloud provides, where does security come into play? What steps should SMBs take to ensure their move is a safe one? Join Stephen Helm, product marketing manager, and Jason Vendramin, senior product manager, as they explore top cloud challenges, trends, and tips in this informative webinar.
It's expected that by 2020, annual revenues around IoT solutions could exceed $470 billion. As all things IoT saturate the market (cars, tea kettles, toasters!) what does that mean from a security standpoint? What vulnerabilities aren't included in the fine print of these technologies? Join Ryan Orsi in episode three of our webinar series for a look at the current state of Wi-Fi Iot and what may lay ahead.
565,000. Alarmingly, that’s the number of videos currently available on Youtube that explain how to execute a wireless attack. In less than a weekend, anyone with Internet access and some free time can become a Wi-Fi MiTM (Man in the Middle) and wreak havoc on your network.
Join WatchGuard's Ryan Orsi in episode one of our three-part Secure Wi-Fi miniseries as he explores the motives, execution, and anatomy of a Wi-Fi hack.
When cyber criminals lurk behind every dark corner of your network, where do you look for protection?
Having disparate security solutions – from the network, endpoint, and threat intelligence feeds – is no longer enough. There needs to be correlation among these environments, or bad actors are certain to exploit your technology silos.
Join Alexandra Lating, Senior Product Marketing Manager, and Marc Laliberte, Information Security Analyst, for a look at the key players needed to defend your network, but more importantly – what happens when you bring them together.
Having the right security measures is a good start, but it’s only half the battle. You need a unified security front. You need Correlation.
2017 is sure to be marked by significant change and innovation within the world of technology. But as technology evolves, cyber threats are all too certain to follow suit.
With our best crystal ball firmly in hand, WatchGuard is proud to present our 2017 Security Predictions. Join WatchGuard CTO Corey Nachreiner and his panel of security experts for an exciting, interactive discussion on the upcoming year in network security. They’ll take a look at the top security trends that are the basis for our predictions, along with some key tips and tricks for staying ahead of them.
Over 90% of all breaches are enabled by a few hundred commercial exploit kits that hackers share and sell in the black market. The typical IT environment may have thousands of unpatched vulnerabilities, but at any given time, only a small handful of vulnerabilities are being actively exploited. To stay ahead of these attacks, WatchGuard participates in NSS exploit testing using CAWS (Cyber Advanced Warning System) - a cloud hosted software service that actively monitors and harvests live cyber threats and attacks, and then tests them against environments protected by the most widely used security solutions in the industry.
Join Brendan Patterson, director of product management at WatchGuard, and Rob Johnson, sales engineer at NSS Labs, for a behind the scenes look at the CAWS test system, and how it helps enable WatchGuard to stop hackers in their tracks.
Organizations across all industries are facing increased pressure from customers, vendors, and employees to offer Wi-Fi access. While offering this service provides significant gains, businesses cannot forget about the critical security measures needed to defend against wireless threats.
Join Ryan Orsi, Director of Strategic Alliances, as he delves into the top challenges of deploying enterprise-grade, secure Wi-Fi, and the key solutions within reach of all organizations.
