In these two exclusive podcasts, CBR editor Jason Stamper puts two experts from M86 Security – formed through the mergers of Marshal, 8e6, Avinti and Finjan – through their paces.
Podcast 1. Web vulnerabilities: why what you don’t know could hurt your organisation
In this CBR podcast, Jason quizzes Tim Warner, VP of sales at M86 Security, about the latest threats posed by Web vulnerabilities, and what organisations can do to protect themselves from them.
The interview covers the latest risk factors around Web access, the impact on companies that fail to deal with such risks, and the changing dynamics of Web vulnerabilities caused by the likes of social media and video usage in the enterprise.
After a discussion around the benefits of an appliance-based approach to Web security technology, the podcast ends with Warner taking a peek into his crystal ball to assess where the next generation of threats are emerging from in the Web arena, and what organisations should do to make sure they do not fall victim to those risks.

Podcast 2. Email: security saint or sinner?
In this podcast, editor Jason talks to Ed Rowley, product manager at M86 Security, about the very real security issues that continue to dog corporate email systems.
Email is clearly considered mission critical in most companies, yet it is by no means foolproof. Rowley begins by explaining what some of the risks are, and argues that the possibility of a fine of up to £500,000 handed down by the Information Commissioner’s Office for data protection breaches should focus minds on the issue of data leakage.
After a discussion of the benefits of data leakage prevention technology, Rowley goes on to talk about the importance of email security technology not impacting staff productivity, and talks about whether email security should be deployed at the perimeter, centrally or both. There’s just time to end with Rowley’s views on effectively setting and enforcing security policy in this area, and a brief look at hosted email security options.
