Survey Says… Zero-Day Attacks and Evasive Malware are Biggest Risks

We thought you’d be interested in some initial findings from the recent Palo Alto survey of Ignite attendees. The survey uncovered the cybersecurity pain points these event attendees face, what keeps them up at night, and what specific concerns they have for their organisations.

The majority of respondents reported zero-day attacks and evasive malware represent the biggest risks. Social engineering attacks and insider threats are close behind.

Palo_Alto_Bog_ImagePalo Alto emphasised that with so many attacks detection in itself is not enough – prevention is key – stopping these attacks before they damage your brand or steal your valuable customer and corporate data.

Palo Alto deliver…

 ‘…a tightly integrated enterprise security platform that delivers automated prevention against known and unknown threats at every point in the kill chain.’

Are you planning to replace your existing firewall this year?

We were delighted to be joined recently by a number of organisations at our SRX Boot camp at Juniper Networks HQ in Addlestone, Surrey for one of our SRX Boot Camps.

These hands on training sessions are perfect for organisations with Firewall projects in the pipeline in the next few months, allowing attendees to get hands on with the SRX series firewalls and really get under the skin of the Juniper Networks Unified Threat Management Firewall series.

SRX2

IT and Network Managers joined us from a diverse range of organisations, all with firewall projects coming up. The session allows organisations to learn more about both the branch and the high end SRX series, as well as gets hands on with the devices in the lab configuring the units.

A big thank you to @juniper_uk for looking after us all so well at their HQ in Addlestone. We were very pleased that Area Partner Director, Darryl Brick joined the session and addressed our attendees giving them some essential background on and introduction to Juniper Networks, giving us all a really good feel for Juniper Network’s commitment to us here @networkutils as a valued Juniper Networks Elite partners and that safe pair of hands for our customer’s IT projects.
