2020 was challenging in many ways, from a rapid influx of remote working, the maturity of 5G computing, IoT/OT infrastructure, Edge and Cloud environments to the threats that come with them. According to AT&T Cybersecurity Insights™ Report 2021, “83.2% of respondents believe attacks on web-based applications will be a challenge” in 2021. And 47% agree, “5G poses an elevated security threat partly because there are more vectors through which adversaries can attack.”
Security teams are tasked with not only implementing a growing combination of tools and analytics to identify and protect a widening threat vector, but incorporating industry best practices to better guide their deployment philosophies. We put together a breakdown of this year's top cybersecurity visibility best practices to keep in mind while architecting your 2021 deployments.
Learn how IDS and IPS works, what the differences are, and just as important — how to deploy and manage them.
Threat hunting is the act of looking for signs of cybersecurity attacks to prevent them before they occur or do too much damage. It's a proactive strategy that protects your organization's IT assets and data through continuous monitoring and analysis. Threat hunting often involves thinking like an attacker and spotting weak points before they're compromised.

DDoS attacks work by sending large amounts of fake traffic to a web application or service. If the DDoS attack is large enough, then the target can’t handle the volume of junk data, and the website, service, or application crashes.
Learn how some companies deploy DDoS Detection & Mitigation tools that combine multi-vector distributed denial-of-service defenses, utilizing threat intelligence to recognize, filter and block malicious traffic.
Due to the significant growth in encrypted traffic it’s easy to see why decryption is critical to securing today’s enterprise networks. With growing blind spots forming in encrypted traffic, SSL/TLS sessions are increasingly used to conceal malware, hide command-and-control traffic and cloak the exfiltration of stolen data, inadvertently camouflaging malicious traffic. Effectively exploiting the very technology used to make user data and privacy more secure.
Learn about SSL and TLS, and how they work in today’s security.
Designing a modern cybersecurity strategy is no easy feat, as it must protect all components of a complex network, while having a limited effect on performance. As expected, we get a lot of questions about the differences between an inline and out-of-band security deployment and whether or not network TAPs or Bypass TAPs are needed.
Learn how today’s security strategies incorporate both scenarios, with a suite of active blocking and passive monitoring tools.
Firewalls prevent unauthorized access to your network, protecting your data from being compromised and is considered a bedrock of IT security stacks along with Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).
Review which firewall you may need to deploy and best practices for managing availability of inline firewalls.
The concept of network redundancy is accomplished through what is referred to as High availability (HA) deployments. HA network designs incorporate redundant components for critical power, cooling, compute, network, security and storage infrastructure with the goal of eliminating any single point of failure that could compromise the network.
Let’s dig deeper and review what network redundancy is, when it is needed and how to deploy High Availability (HA) solutions in your network.
Learn how Garland Technology has pioneered a solution addressing the challenge of a growing security stack, by deploying a method we call “Historical Look-back.” This adds packet capture, storage capabilities and forensics to your inline deployment without using SPAN or additional access points, providing the next evolution of network security.
As if traditional data center security wasn’t challenging enough, edge computing introduces two key factors that emphasize your vulnerabilities—decentralized data and device volume.
The core of edge computing is the idea that you can shift processing power to the outer edges of your network where data is generated. While that’s great for application speed, it naturally removes data from the safety of your central security systems. And that challenge is only compounded by the fact that more and more devices are being added to the edge of your network.
Learn how to adapt to new security demands at the Edge.
