LONDON, UK: Proofpoint, Inc. has released the results of its annual study that details the ways attackers exploit end-users' psychology to circumvent IT security. The Human Factor Report 2015 reveals that last year was the year attackers “went corporate” by changing their tactics to focus on businesses rather than consumers, exploiting middle management overload of information sharing, and trading off attack volume for sophistication. The Proofpoint findings reiterate how human behavior, not simply system or software vulnerabilities, has significant implications on enterprise security—and what defenses are necessary in a world where everyone clicks.

San Francisco, CA: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd and FireEye have announced a partnership to share threat intelligence to protect customers from modern advanced attacks.

Hamburg: gateprotect GmbH, a German IT security specialist and subsidiary of the Rohde & Schwarz corporate group, has expanded its product range with the R&S®SITLine ETH security solutions.

San Francisco, CA and Plantation, Fla.:  Thales has announce the integration of its nShield hardware security module (HSM) with Citrix NetScaler, an industry leading Application Delivery Controller (ADC) with TriScale technology, used in application delivery and desktop virtualization in the world’s largest cloud networks.
