I’m excited to see so many changes going on in the areas of cyber security. Our leadership recognizes the future trend of organizations needing to drive intelligent security instead of the older concept of just layering products to address individual issues, which I think responds well to a world where people are realizing that there’s no single solution or product, no ‘silver bullet’ that will keep their organization safe. Even the threats themselves are evolving, with malware coders actively adjusting their attacks with every patch and signature the good guys put out. We’ve built this awareness into our whole security strategy at Symantec, and as our fiscal year comes to a close I can look back on what we’ve done and where we’re going with real enthusiasm.

Looking backward, in the last 12 months in Managed Security Services we’ve re-architected how we handle and process big data to provide a...

Nothing has the full attention of IT today like the need for security. Cybercrime is becoming simpler and more lucrative, encouraging more criminals to participate, and threats of all kinds are on the rise. Combined with the expanding list of initiatives, such as cloud computing, and the need to support mobile devices, IT’s resources are being stretched thin. To see how they are responding to emerging threats, Symantec commissioned a survey of enterprises worldwide. The survey, entitled the 2011 Threat Management Survey, was announced today and revealed the following key findings.

Finding 1: Enterprises lack confidence in their security posture, mostly due to staffing issues

As cybercriminals continue targeted attacks against enterprises, IT finds itself facing a continuous stream of security threats. The poll revealed that more than half (...

Note: This is the first in a series of blog postings by Steve Parrott, Director of Product Management for Symantec MSS regarding the on-going evolution of the security marketplace and customer threat environment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One of the things that I am always asked by customers of Symantec MSS is how the MSS environment will evolve over the next three to five years. While most CISOs understand the threat environment of today, what keeps them up at night is trying to understand the threat environment of tomorrow and all of the implications and risks. And customers are desperate to understand. They are literally being attacked from all sides, constantly, and with tremendous potential for ever greater losses of information, money or reputation. With risks being as high as ever, the question is often how can Symantec MSS help them...

Symantec’s Managed Security Services (MSS)EMEA Security Operations Centre (SOC) was recently highlighted in a 10-minute BBC Newsnight special on the subject of cyberwar.  As part of the feature, specifics are shared regarding the need for governments worldwide to call for ‘rules of engagement’ for cyber conflict and the new dimensions the Internet creates for international politics.

In preparation for this special, a Newsnight producer had an initial conversation with Symantec’s Liam O’Murchu on his analysis of Stuxnet. Following that conversation, three...

Another RSA conference has come and gone so it feels appropriate to take a moment and summarize significant experiences from the event.   Overall, the conference activity level was busy as ever and seemed to match or surpass its former heydays – hopefully a sign of our strengthening economy.  Highlights of the week for Symantec and MSS were;

  • Symantec Managed Security Services (MSS) had its own demo/display area and over 100 customers/prospects stopped by to learn more during the three expo days.  If you would like to download MSS or other Symantec literature, visit the Symantec RSA Collateral Resource Center
     
  • Symantec launched the beta of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12, which will provide the only reputation-based security solution that is context-aware. With SEP 12,...

Welcome to the new Managed Security Services Blog!
by Grant Geyer, VP Global Managed Services

Welcome to the Symantec Managed Security Services (MSS) blog!  As practitioners are fully aware, while more and more of our critical assets are moving online, the threat landscape is bad and getting worse as threats are stealthy and hard-to-detect, motivated by financial gain.  Now more than ever, having  real-time awareness of threats, vulnerabilities, and an understanding of the impact of security incidents are key to an effective risk mitigation program.  Through our MSS blog, we will provide insight into how organizations such as yours can improve security effectiveness and enhance efficiency of security operations via a managed services model.  Contributing Symantec security experts will share their thoughts and experiences on how best to protect IT assets, people and information in the rapidly evolving threat environment. ...

In spite of mounting evidence to the contrary, many of the enterprise security leaders with whom I speak seem to still be living in a world where the greatest threat to their enterprise was the “hacker” trying to breach their firewall.  When the MSSP industry was born in the late 90’s, this may have been the case.  The entire industry rose in part as a result of the development of intrusion detection (IDS) technologies.  The earliest IDS sensors were signature-based and focused on, as the name implies, detecting intrusions to the network.  Because many enterprises were ill-prepared to deal with the volume of alerts and high rate of false positives, Managed Security Service providers emerged to provide a means to validate and evaluate the alerts generated by these sensors.  Over time, the IDS industry matured to incorporate technologies such as protocol anomaly...
