Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

What Will (And Won't) Happen In Network Security in 2015

Don’t worry about every network security trend that might happen next year

Just the important ones.


The network security trade can feel pretty gloomy. We spend all our time looking for trouble and expecting the worst, and the doom and gloom hits its peak during prediction season. It’s a terrible way to close out the year.

So this year, we’re taking a more balanced approach.

For 2015, we’ve identified several security trends you shouldn’t worry about—and some you should. From government policies to business practices to new technologies, we’ll help you gain a little perspective around network security for the new year.

Hey, we can’t promise it will all be rainbows and unicorns. But if you’re going to look to expert predictions for guidance, wouldn’t it be nice to know what NOT to worry about?

Join us as WatchGuard’s Director of Security Strategy Corey Nachreiner takes a look into the future and helps you get ready to face 2015.

    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.

  • Staying Ahead of Hackers with NSS CAWS Advanced Exploit Testing Recorded: Nov 17 2016 40 mins
    Brendan Patterson, director of product management, and Rob Johnson, sales engineer
    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.

    Corey Nachreiner, Director of Security Strategy and Research at WatchGuard Technologies
    In Westeros - the land of dark knights, backstabbing royals, and a myriad of other characters - even the youngest ones have to learn basic self-defense to have any hope of surviving the cruel world imagined by A Game of Thrones (GOT) author, George R. R. Martin. And so too, must every CISO and security pro learn the latest information security best practices if they’re to survive today’s Internet threat landscape.

  • Security Network in a Virtual, Cloudy World: Virtualization Best Practices Recorded: May 14 2014 61 mins
    Corey Nachreiner, Director of Security Strategy for WatchGuard
    Over the past decade, virtualization technology has delivered cost savings and flexibility to IT, but it also introduced new security challenges. Attend this upcoming webinar to learn what Corey Nachreiner identifies as some security risks inherent to virtualization, and shares with you how to protect yourself from these risks.

    The agenda’s:
    Though I’m sure you are all fairly familiar with the technology, I’ll start by sharing a two minute history of virtualization—mostly to identify some of the terms I’ll use through-out the presentation

    Next, I talk about some of the security challenges specific to virtualization, as well as highlight how attackers have started targeting this technology with new malware

    Finally, I’m not here to scare you away from virtualization—It’s a fantastic technology that has truly revolutionized the way we do business—so I’ll end by sharing some tips and best practices that will help create virtual environments that are just as secure as the physical ones they replace.
