Winter is no longer coming, it has come and for Game of Thrones fans, many of whom are also in IT and/security, it was a bitter, bitter winter. That is all past and the good news is that we have another National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The theme this year? Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.

There are some things you can’t really defend against. If the bad guys have a particularly nasty zero day exploit, unknown and unpatched, you have a real problem. That said, it is far more common to run into things like known vulnerabilities going unpatched or outdated software going unupdated. That is where personal responsibility comes in.

This year we are fortunate enough to have Scott Behm, Keysight CISO providing some tips and tricks – his videos are posted below.

Ixia reveals security insights in the 2019 Security Report. 

Ixia has more than 20 years of experience testing networking and network-security appliances.  We also provide the industry’s highest performing network packet broker. Along the way, we have seen a dramatic increase in business attack surfaces, and not just because of additional malware. Organizations must grapple with new cloud technologies, mobile devices on the network, a host of new compliance and monitoring tools, and the rise of the Internet of Things.

We analyze the impacts of these new trends in our 2019 Security Report, including examinations of the shifting environment of network security, how security reach is expanding, new threats, and new areas of vulnerability. Download the Ixia 2019 Security Report to learn more.
