When a giant global plastics manufacturer faced a super cyber threat landscape, SonicWall’s firewall “Hero Sandwich” came to the rescue. This powerful security solution of the SonicWall Firewall Sandwich was recently leveraged by our customer, a global enterprise network. The challenges faced by this customer were the same that all companies face today as the cyber threat landscape increases exponentially year over year.
The foundation of email threat protection has long been anti-virus technology and IP reputation databases. Threat research teams across the globe are hard at work analyzing email, identifying spam and malware, and building anti-virus and IP reputation database libraries to help combat threats. Experts agree that for best threat protection, email security solutions should not rely on a single anti-virus engine or reputation database, but should integrate multiple sources to maximize security effectiveness.
If you follow sports at all you’ve probably heard about athletes using visualization to improve performance. It’s a simple tool where an athlete visualizes or “sees” himself or herself performing successfully in the athlete’s mind.

As advances in networking continue to provide tremendous benefits, businesses are increasingly challenged by sophisticated attacks designed to disrupt communication, degrade performance and compromise data. Striking the perfect balance between network security and performance is no easy task. Meeting these demands can be especially daunting for small businesses, which usually cannot afford the same degree of protections as their larger counterparts.
I returned to Las Vegas earlier this month to attend the Black Hat USA 2015 hacker conference where I learned about the latest and most shocking vulnerabilities discovered by security researchers from around the world. It’s fascinating to see some of the incredible security exploits being demonstrated there which I thought were possible only in sci-fi films.
