The most important thing to understand about dealing with a true advanced persistent threat (APT) is that it's like having pneumonia; by the time it's diagnosed you've probably had it for a while - sometimes a long while. It's often not easy to cure, and if you try to cure it without the right medication, it can mutate and become resistant. In fact, an APT is worse than ordinary pneumonia - it's like designer pneumonia that's been genetically engineered specifically for you.

Malwarebytes Launches Managed Detection and Response Solution to Reinforce Security Operations of Resource-Limited Organizations

Malwarebytes | October 13, 2022

Malwarebytes™, a global leader in real-time cyber protection, today launched Malwarebytes Managed Detection and Response (MDR), which combines EDR technology and human-delivered security expertise to provide 24/7 threat hunting, monitoring, and response. Amid a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals, many organizations lack the time and expertise to monitor and validate security alerts around-the-clock. Teams also struggle to fully utilize the forensics and threat hunting tools provided by EDR platforms and can miss identifying hidden threats before they become infections. Without the time for thorough incident investigations of the scope and root cause of an event, organizations are left with ineffective remediation plans and risk repeating the incident cycle. By providing world-class security analysts, third-party intelligence, and threat analysis tools, Malwarebytes MDR can extend the capabilities of existing teams or completely fill the need of organizations lacking dedicated security staff. The Malwarebytes MDR analysts are constantly monitoring and triaging alerts, hunting for hidden threats, and either directly remediating or providing customized guidance to organizations. For any SMB or MSP with more alerts than they can handle, Malwarebytes MDR enables organizations to prioritize critical alerts, detect advanced malware attacks, analyse past indicators-of-compromise, and bolster ongoing resiliency. "There simply aren't enough hours in the day for most organizations to adequately address a barrage of alerts. But they don't have to do it alone. "We've recruited an incredible team of dedicated experts across the globe and empowered them with our award-winning tools and AI-based threat modeling to be a powerful force-multiplier for SMBs and MSPs. This is just the beginning as we continue to accelerate product innovation and deliver new services to secure chronically underserved SMBs and empower MSPs to be their heroes." Bob Shaker, Vice President of Managed Services at Malwarebytes Specifically, Malwarebytes MDR will: Supplement security expertise: Augments security staff with an instant team of experts to correlate threat data, enrich alerts and respond to threats 24/7.

mParticle announces new custom access roles API to enhance security of customer data

mParticle | October 10, 2022

mParticle, a leader in customer data infrastructure, announced today that it is introducing Custom Access Roles to its platform, extending its enterprise-grade controls to enhance security and simplify compliance. With customer data breaches in the news almost daily, there is a need for more robust data controls, especially for the world's largest brands. Modern security and compliance practices take a least privileged access approach to platform roles. To achieve true least privileged access, companies need to customize their roles to fit their business. Custom Access Roles give customers the flexibility to create unique roles tailored to the needs of not only marketers, developers, and product managers, but anyone in the company who works with customer data. Custom Access Roles limit the number of users that have privileged access, thereby protecting customer data. As teams set out to build their first-party data set, data protection becomes even more important. Not all users need access to all customer data, and admins need to be able to assign access based on the nuances of their business. With Custom Access Roles, mParticle customers can decide which permissions belong to which roles, ensuring that the right users have access to the right data. For example, a "Developer" role could have access to set up a new integration, but not to create audiences. An "Auditor" role could have access to view reporting, but not to edit reports. The mParticle Customer Data Platform (CDP) is the trusted customer data pipeline of the world's largest brands. It is the only CDP on the market with advanced security and privacy controls built for the compliance regulations enterprise organizations face. With over 300+ tested and trusted out-of-the-box integrations, infrastructure that spans the globe, and a solutions team with a proven track record of success. Custom Access Roles is another example of mParticle's focus on addressing enterprise-level challenges as they continue to evolve. About mParticle mParticle is an AI Customer Data Platform that powers the entire marketing stack with real-time customer data. Companies like NBCUniversal, JetBlue, Venmo, and Airbnb use mParticle to simplify their customer data infrastructure, maximize the value of their data, and accelerate growth at scale. Over the last year, the company has raised $150M in funding and acquired two startups, Vidora and Indicative. Founded in 2013, mParticle is headquartered in New York City with employees around the globe.
