RSA 2017 is a wrap.

As expected, the hottest security topics and offerings were related to IoT and the cloud. Threat intelligence and SOCs were also top of mind as companies try to get a handle on the deluge of data and devices flooding their networks. In spite of the veneer of innovation, however, for far too many vendors... [Read More]

I recently bought a new car with all the bells and whistles. It warns me if I stray out of my lane. It warns me if there is a car in my blind spot.

It has collision detection, and automatic braking, and a fully connected entertainment and communications... [Read More]

This post originally appeared as a byline in Dark Reading. For cyber intelligence sharing to work, organizations need two things: to trust each other, and better processes to collect, exchange, and act on information quickly. As cyberthreats become more sophisticated and expand to the Cloud and the Internet of Things, the sharing of meaningful threat intel between trusted organizations has become more critical than ever before.  At Fortinet this year, our teams witnessed the benefits of info sharing first hand as part of a joint...
