Gigamon ATR: A NEW Blog Site, a Featured Post and Who Is Gigamon ATR?
Gigamon Applied Threat Research (ATR) recently launched its own blog site and web page, giving you a more in-depth resource to help stay on top of network security threats. The most recent security-focused report posted last month takes a deep dive into the latest crimeware trends, so you can detect, investigate and stay ahead of the crimeware game.
Other compelling topics covered in the ATR blogs include loads of critical findings and research you’ll want to know about, including:
- FIN7: A financially motivated threat that targets large organizations that rely upon significant point-of-sale environments and process payment card data.
- Identification of vulnerability in Adobe Flash: Gigamon ATR identified active exploitation of zero-day vulnerability in Adobe Flash, seemingly targeting an organization in Russia.

These are but a few of the posts you’ll find on the new ATR blog site. Each post is comprehensive and offers thorough research, giving you a broad overview of what is out there and how to act preemptively.
