Meeting PCI DSS Controls Using AppGate

PCI DSS version 3.2, effective in April 2016, expanded upon version 3.0 released in January 2015.  Version 3.2 made compliance an even more demanding task for organizations that handle payment card data.

This white paper explains how AppGate can address some of the challenges of PCI compliance, when used by the enterprise with other specifically designed tools and as part of an overall enterprise information security vision.

Managing the Risks of Third-Party Access: Why Old Model Security Solutions Aren’t Stopping Data Breaches

Chances are we’ve yet to hear the last of breaches tied to credential theft – whether it’s third-party or employee credentials.  This paper explains how organizations can change their security practices to not only better secure access, but also limit damage if bad actors find their way into your networks.

Infographic: Dark Matter

Is your hardware an easy target?

Enterprises spend a lot of time and money to ensure their corporate resources are secure. Hardware management systems like IPMI and BMC* are often neglected.

This is a problem. Get the infographic which looks at the neglected side of hardware and how this dark matter will expose you to network security threats.

Infographic: Simplify AWS Security with a User-Centric Approach

With 1 million active customers, AWS is the clear leader in cloud services. Yet controlling user access to AWS resources is a consistent problem. If organizations don’t address this, they risk serious security and compliance issues that can impact the business.

The problem is that AWS Security Groups fall short – they’re static and IP address-based. Trying to control “who can access what” with static IP address and port mapping just doesn’t scale in today’s dynamic AWS environments.

Relying on AWS Security Groups leads to:

  • Over privileged users
  • Unmanaged vulnerabilities
  • Never-ending firewall and ACL configuration work

The bottom line is that with AWS security groups, your team can’t meet security or compliance needs. Fortunately, there is a new and better way to secure access to AWS with AppGate XDP.

Securing User Access to Enterprise Systems in Private or Public Clouds

Enterprises have rapidly embraced the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model for developing, building, and deploying enterprise applications. Whether deployed on-premises as a private cloud, or leveraging a public cloud infrastructure, the benefits are undeniable: highly-scalable, on-demand compute and storage resources, nearly unlimited flexibility of the virtualized network environment. Cryptzone continues to address the dynamic nature of the cloud and the security challenges it brings with AppGate.

After the Perimeter: How a ‘Segment of One’ Simplifies and Improves Security

Many recent headlines have highlighted the fact that the traditional perimeter-based approach to network security has failed to adequately protect organizations, and that a new approach is needed. This white paper examines the traditional approach to network security, and why it can no longer effectively be used in today’s environment. It also offers a new approach to network access based on a ‘segment of one’ that can simplify and improve your security.

Avoiding the Security Risks of Office 365

As organizations replace on-premises applications with cloud-based ones, more of their data communications occur outside the corporate firewall, creating a completely new set of compliance and security concerns. Paramount among these concerns is the security of business-critical and sensitive information.This paper discusses how organizations can reap the benefits of Office 365 while mitigating security risks associated with storing information outside the corporate firewall. By reading this white paper, organizations can see how to manage content security risks in Office 365 by continuously monitoring content and automatically applying granular controls to limit access to and the distribution of sensitive content.

4 Cornerstones to Securing Payment Card Data

Effective from January 2015, PCI DSS 3.0 has made compliance an even more demanding task for organizations that handle payment card data. At the same time, recent cyberattacks have demonstrated that compliance alone is no guarantee that data is secure.

In order to succeed in this environment, organizations need to abandon the uphill struggle of attempting to tackle both new PCI requirements and emerging cyber threats using traditional, inflexible network and information security solutions. This whitepaper presents an alternative, best-practice approach to securing payment card data, built on four pillars that address information security while promoting continuous compliance.

Infographic: AppGate’s context aware, dynamic approach to secure access

AppGate Secure Access makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.” It then delivers access to authorized resources only, verifying a number of user variables each session—including device posture and identity—before granting access to an application. Once the user logs out, the secure tunnel disappears. Additionally, when a new device is on a public network, or a device that failed to log in tries to connect, additional security requirements (such as multi-factor authentication) can be enforced, or access can be denied.Download our infographic on AppGate’s context aware, dynamic approach to secure access to learn more.

Infographic: Managing Information Security and Compliance in SharePoint and Office 365

Effective information security and compliance not only requires a well defined governance strategy, but also the ability to manage risk by putting controls in place to identify issues and potential violations, restrict actions that can be taken with sensitive data and log activity. This illustrated guide lays out each step; from defining your strategy, to implementing Cryptzone's solutions for dynamically managing security in SharePoint and Office 365 to help protect your organization's data and meet compliance goals.

Addressing Auditors Compliance Requirements with Secure Access

Regulatory compliance is a critical concern for many organizations. However, implementing the proper security controls and demonstrating compliance places a considerable burden on system administrators and can become very costly. Compliance with regulations, such as SOX, FISMA, PCI, FSA and SCC has always been challenging, but is especially difficult when adherence to multiple regulations is required.
