Cloudflare | January 12, 2023
On 11 Jan 2023, Cloudflare, Inc., a leading cybersecurity solutions provider focused on building a better internet, announced multiple new Zero Trust email security tools, compatible with any email provider. The solution prevents sensitive data exfiltration via email, guard employees against multichannel phishing attacks, and help businesses simplify and accelerate deployments. Cloudflare offers organizations simple and reliable phishing and malware protection that is deeply incorporated with its Zero Trust platform, helping organizations secure all their data and applications.
“You can’t have a complete Zero Trust solution without securing email, given that a huge proportion of all cyberattacks begin with phishing,” stated the Co-Founder and CEO of Cloudflare, Matthew Prince. “In 2022, Cloudflare Area 1 identified and kept almost 2.3 billion unwanted messages out of customer inboxes. Today we’re filling a void in the marketplace that has been underinvested in for the last ten years, with the first set of deeply integrated solutions that bring together Cloudflare Area 1 email security and our Zero Trust platform,” he added.
Email is one of the most pervasive and exploited tools used by businesses daily. According to the FBI’s most recent Internet Crime Report, email account compromise and business email compromise led to U.S. companies losing nearly US$ 2.4 billion. In addition, email is one of the most complex tools for businesses to secure, involving a massive drain on IT team resources, multiple vendors, and complex deployments.
Cloudflare’s Zero Trust SASE platform will allow customers to deploy email security and data protection tools that are comprehensively linked with their current security stack and compatible with any email service provider. Cloudflare One offers a comprehensive Zero Trust SASE platform that is built into Cloudflare’s global network, which spans over 275 cities in over 100 countries. This deeply embedded approach makes it easy to set up in just a few clicks without switching email providers.
With Cloudflare Area 1’s new solutions, companies can automatically isolate questionable email attachments and links, identify and prevent data leaks, and rapidly onboard new Microsoft 365 domains.
Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Cloudflare safeguards and speed up any Internet-based application without installing software, adding hardware, or modifying a single line of code. As a result, the company’s clients experience significant improvement in performance and a reduction in spam and other attacks. Founded in 2009, the organization ranks amongst the 50 most innovative companies worldwide by Fast Company, is acknowledged by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer, and has been named the Most Innovative Network & Internet Technology Company for two consecutive years by the Wall Street Journal.

Varonis | January 27, 2023
On January 26, 2023, Varonis Systems, Inc., a leader in data security and analytics, announced the availability of automated posture management to assist clients in resolving security and compliance gaps spanning their SaaS and IaaS systems.
Varonis continuously scans, identifies, and ranks cloud security threats, providing CISOs and compliance officers with real-time insight into their data security posture. With this new automation option, users can fix misconfigurations in applications such as Salesforce and AWS with a single click from a unified interface.
According to Gartner, through 2025, 99% of cloud security breaches will be the customer's fault. CIOs can counter this by adopting and enforcing rules for cloud ownership, accountability, and risk acceptance.
Varonis Field CTO, Brian Vecci, said, “Automated posture management takes the burden of understanding and remediating cloud misconfigurations off the customer.” He also said, “We stay on top of the latest configuration risks and best practices, so you don’t have to. Now, we can not only show you exactly how to improve your security posture, but we can also automatically mitigate risk on your behalf.”

This release marks a significant advancement in cloud data security. Passive data security posture management (DSPM) solutions need manual operations to generate help desk tickets for a person to review and fix in every cloud application manually. Varonis offers a uniform and automated method for minimizing the attack surface of multi-cloud environments.
Automated posture management is the most recent tool introduced by Varonis to simplify data security outcomes. Varonis introduced least privilege automation for Google Drive, Microsoft 365, and Box, as well as a new data security posture management (DSPM) dashboard early this month.
Varonis is a leader in data security and analytics, waging war differently from typical cybersecurity corporations. Instead, Varonis focuses on protecting business data like:
Sensitive files and emails
Strategic and product plans
Confidential customer, patient, and employee data
In addition to data protection, Zero Trust, data governance, compliance, categorization, data privacy, and threat detection and response, Varonis solutions handle various other critical use cases. The company began operations in 2005 and has clients in the financial services, healthcare, industrial, energy and utilities, insurance, technology, media and entertainment, consumer and retail, and education industries, among others.
