Following a few years of anticipation, WiFi 6 is making its way to homes and other connected places. The industry views WiFi 6 as a transformative technology that will be one of the leading trends of the 21st century and will drastically change the consumer experience. Market adoption began in earnest in 2020, and analysts and industry experts expect to see a brisk pace of growth.
Indeed, WiFi 6 brings many exciting improvements to a technology that's now two decades old. Its new features and capabilities are designed to provide advancements such as higher throughput and improved transmission efficiency and capacity. These will be welcome enhancements in connected environments—including the smart home, where the home network is growing more congested.
Many of the new WiFi 6 capabilities, however, come with drawbacks and limitations. For the technology to achieve its promised potential, Communications Services Providers (CSPs) will need to intelligently manage the home network. Despite all its breakthroughs, WiFi 6 requires more, not less, optimization than previous WiFi generations— and its performance will depend largely on the system controlling it.View Whitepaper
Security professionals understand that hackers hide lateral movement inside large volumes of east-west network traffic. Organizations need new tools and techniques to detect and prevent such activity.
In this paper, you will learn:
How VMware combines detection techniques from Distributed IDS/IPS, Network Sandboxing, and Network Traffic Analysis.
The role of Network Detection and Response in advanced threat prevention.
The characteristics of a Network Sandbox that is resistant to malware evasion.
Though the scale and economics of the cloud are a boon for today’s enterprise, moving applications and data out of the data center into multi-cloud environments has greatly expanded threat surfaces, putting enterprises at greater risk of devastating ransomware attacks. This report will explore how to move beyond segmentation inside the data center and traditional next-gen firewalls at the perimeter and build a defense that meets the special demands of a multi-cloud environment. ...
90% of cloud runs on Linux. So, is it any wonder that malware is propagating in multi-cloud environments under the radar? Current countermeasures are focused on addressing Windows-based threats, leaving multi-cloud deployments vulnerable to attacks.
Based on research conducted by the VMware Threat Analysis Unit, this report uncovers the unique characteristics of remote access tools (RATs), ransomware, and cryptominers on Linux-based systems and how you can mitigate these threats. You will learn more about:
Existing characterization tech ...
Organizations can no longer rely on edge firewalls alone to provide network security. Once attackers get past an edge firewall, they can move laterally to high-value assets. This book illustrates how internal firewalls can help your organization secure east-west network traffic and prevent attackers’ lateral movements.
In the Internal Firewalls for Dummies Guide, you’ll learn:
The different types of network traffic and the firewall types that protect them
How distributed internal firewalls combine the best of hardware-based enterprise e ...
