Nontraditional DDoS Attacks Are On The Rise

Heath Mullins March 10, 2022
If you have never heard of “DDoS amplification factor” prior to this week, you’re not alone. A new zero-day attack surfaced a vulnerability from an unlikely source: an internet-facing PBX (private branch exchange) system.

The Definition Of Modern Zero Trust

David Holmes January 24, 2022

Stop Dumping Your Budget Dollars Down The Drain For Network Visibility

Steve Turner October 20, 2021
As I’ve talked to numerous organizations about their Zero Trust journeys, one thing has stood out quite clearly: Security teams are struggling to understand what’s happening on their networks.

Zero Trust Doesn’t Mean Zero Breaches

David Holmes June 29, 2021
We occasionally get asked this question: “Would Zero Trust have prevented [insert high-profile breach]?” The breach in question could be Equifax, SolarWinds, or the United States Office of Personnel Management.
