Enterprise Security: Tools, Reviews, Tips and Tricks

In the past, corporations and large organizations were usually the targets of cyber attacks. Today, however, organizations of all sizes need to be mindful of cyber threats lurking in the wild, and need to work towards a goal of impenetrable security.

Along with our Tips category that shares resources for the more strategic side of cybersecurity, our “Enterprise Security” category tackles the risk of unauthorized access and the securing of all entry points.

Enterprise security covers all strategies, techniques and processes that secure digital assets and critical information against malicious attackers trying to gain unauthorized access to an organization's system and networks. This area encompasses the “Technology, People and Processes” involved, with the goal of focusing on the strategic, legal and cultural requirements needed to protect an organization’s information.

In this category, you’ll find in-depth information about different aspects of enterprise security, including common security risks for organizations of all sizes, concepts such as Zero Trust, advanced persistent threats, ransomware attacks, and of course, a bit on the security teams responsible for creating and maintaining the cybersecurity posture of an organization — red teams, blue teams, purple teams, security operations centers, and more.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ― Benjamin Franklin The concept of risk is ubiquitous across the cybersecurity landscape. In this day and age, it is difficult to envision any security-conscious organization not having alluded, hopefully more than once, to the serious consequences attached to avoiding the subject, particularly when it comes to protecting its most sensitive digital assets and personal data.

Attack Surface Monitoring: Definition, Benefits and Best Practices

The firewall, IDSs, EDR platforms and proxies are your first line of defence.

In his seminal work, The Mythical Man-Month, Frederick Brooks Jr. tells us that software development is homologous to a tar pit where many efforts flounder regardless of the appealing nature of the task or the relative tractability of the underlying physical medium. In what he calls one of the “woes of the craft”, the author goes on to explain that the pervasive optimism among programmers regarding the conception of a software project is rarely maintained after we take into account the set of complex interdependencies commensurate with others’ skills and objectives.
