If there’s one truth about the cybercrime dynamic, it is this: by their very nature, the adversary is always ahead of defender.
 
The adversaries are fast, smart, and they develop new techniques every day to steal, manipulate, or wreak havoc on our lives, businesses, and the economy at large.
 
When trying to defend your network, time has not been on your side. The time it takes between identifying a threat (such as malware, a malicious IP, or a new vulnerability) and putting the right defense in place to mitigate that threat is still much, much too long.
 
That’s why Juniper created its Spotlight Secure Threat Intelligence Platform. It’s designed to do just one thing: Take threat intelligence from any source, and immediately allow all SRX firewalls to stop that threat before it take action on network. In the past, this could take weeks or months. With Juniper’s Spotlight Secure, it takes just minutes.
 
Take a look at Spotlight Secure overview, and find out how a threat intelligence platform for SRX can keep your network more secure than ever before. Or check out more information on the Juniper.net Spotlight Secure page.

There are many ways in which Juniper can help secure your environment, but there are two innovations that we believe are particularly relevant to the flexible, agile IT environments that we know you are building. The first is our strategy of building firewalls that help you to manage security in virtualised cloud environments, and the second is our commitment to an open platform for enforcement of threat intelligence.

Microsoft released an out-of-band update, MS14-068, yesterday to patch a critical bug in its Kerberos implementation. This bug could allow a remote, unprivileged, authenticated attacker to elevate their privileges to that of any other domain user. Such an attack could also enable the attacker to obtain domain administrator privileges and completely compromise the security restrictions enforced on the targeted domain.

The pace of change seen in the adoption of new methods and technology deployed by nefarious characters in cyberspace continues to place new demands on government information systems. There are multiple persistent cybersecurity threats targeting governments, critical infrastructure, economic institutions and commercial property. The government has recognized these threats. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program increases network defense through the modernization of information system infrastructure.

What wasn’t publicly revealed until after the update was safely completed, however, was that it actually was a carefully coordinated operation intended to head off a major security breach, as identified in the Xen patch advisory.
