Identify, deploy, and secure your enterprise
Security Intelligence, A Practitioner's Guide to Solving Enterprise Security Challenges is a handbook for security in modern times, against modern adversaries. As leaders in the design and creation of security products that are deployed globally across a range of industries and market sectors, authors Qing Li and Gregory Clark deliver unparalleled insight into the development of comprehensive and focused enterprise security solutions. They walk you through the process of translating your security goals into specific security technology domains, formulating the best deployment strategies, and verifying the solution by analyzing security incidents and divulging hidden breaches.
This guide provides detailed coverage of key enterprise security topics while demystifying technologies such as Next Generation Firewall. Through an in-depth look at proxy design and its policy enforcement engine, malware, malnets, and application proxies, you'll easily discover the foundation needed for a careful analysis while gaining deeper comprehension of security policies for application-specific proxies, application classification and control, security data analysis, and mobile security. You will learn the most effective solutions, technologies, and methodologies that can be implemented to monitor for, guard against, and mitigate security threats.
Security Intelligence makes enterprise security concepts, solutions, and practices accessible to all security engineers, developers, and corporate IT staff and shows you how to:
- Identify relevant solutions to secure critical infrastructure
- Construct policies that provide flexibility to the users and ensure productivity
- Deploy effective defenses against rapidly-evolving web threats
- Implement solutions that comply with relevant rules and regulations
- Build new security solutions, policies, and products within the enterprise context
“This book should help any developer, researcher, designer, architect, and even strategist to develop not just solutions, but good solutions, in this dense and evolving area…It could be used as a foundation to certify newcomers to the (security) field and will challenge (professionals) on a horizon of skills beyond security, networking, software design, and system architecture.”
—Arnaud Taddei, Director of Security Solutions Architecture, Symantec
“I was looking forward to reading Security Intelligence: A Practitioner’s Guide to Solving Enterprise Security Challenges as a way to learn about the Symantec Blue Coat Security Proxy in support of my work at Symantec. However, I was soon pleased to discover that the book is much more than that. While the coverage of security proxies is indeed comprehensive, the book more broadly takes on the task of guiding the reader to an understanding of network security as a whole… The book is clearly written in an approachable conversational style that is careful not to slip into undefined jargon or assume specialized background of the reader, making it an excellent entrée to what is sometimes an inaccessible field.”
—Michael Spertus, Symantec Fellow at Symantec and Adjunct Professor, University of Chicago
