Trusted Network Connect: Open Standards for Integrity-based Network Access Control
Unlike yesterday’s passive cyber-threats, which depended upon users’ actions for transmission, today’s stealthier tactics infect entire networks without any user involvement. Read this whitepaper to learn more.
Recently we have seen cyber threats evolving from being passive requiring users’ actions for transmission, to stealthier tactics that would infect entire network without any user involvement. Threats are now taking on a new dimension as they become more targeted, distributed and sophisticated causing maximum damage to the sphere where it matters most. The IT landscape is also changing as networks converge, services move to cloud, and endpoints become more mobile. Thinning network boundaries, vulnerabilities in unpatched software running in corporate computers, jail broken cell phones and tablets with malicious unverified apps allow code altering root kits and worm infections to infiltrate devices and gain access to confidential data. The resulting theft or modification of proprietary data by professional attackers-cracker hobbyists, organized criminals or corporate spies-costs billions, ruins businesses and wreaks havoc on identity theft victims.
