Yesterday we posted about a new strain of highly advanced malware (APT), dubbed Flame. It is potentially the most advanced malware to date, at least in terms of functionality combined with the ability to stay hidden over a long period of time. It’s also unusually large (20 MB), whereas most attacks contain small files (under 1MB). The file is so large because it incorporates a broad set of capabilities including recording audio, taking screenshots, compiling a list of nearby Bluetooth devices, and more. It even includes some rare techniques not commonly found in malware, such as using the LUA scripting language for some of its functions. The primary function of Flame is to...
Ever been to a webinar that tells you what to do, but fails
to say how? Well, this week I’m determined to change that. I’m hosting a
webinar that will help eliminate DLP fears and provide a guide on managing
risk. As a Websense expert on DLP, I’m going to give real-world practical
advice on how anyone can understand, apply, and realize real measurable DLP
Here’s the webinar
link. Join me on Thursday, April 5th at 10 a.m. PST/1 p.m. EST. You’ll
- Guiding principles of security and risk
- Data breach trends from the last six years
- Nine-step DLP methodology and execution strategy
- Success factors in addressing the web DLP
While CIOs don’t need to be convinced that data loss protection is
important—many are afraid of failure. They have heard horror stories about
deployment complexities and operational nightmares. Recent high-profile data
breach headlines have also made them question the true value and effectiveness
of DLP. Could you blame them? Well, this webinar is designed to give you a road
map to DLP success.

I’ve had a few customers ask me recently about how we compare to OpenDNS. We only run across Open DNS once in a while, typically for extremely price-conscious customers. But cheap comes at a cost and when the solution is insufficient the savings can’t be justified.
Open DNS works by using their cloud-based DNS servers as URL filter databases. Since the huge majority of web requests require DNS resolution to match an IP address to a URL domain name, they provide filtering by having an objectionable URL map to a block page location rather than to the web site.
OpenDNS sells to a lot of schools, so let’s look at a relevant example...
