Deloitte to Acquire Digital Terbium Labs, Risk Protection Solution Provider, to Expand its Offerings towards Threat Intelligence

Deloitte | June 21, 2021

Deloitte has announced its acquisition of assets of Terbium Labs, a Baltimore-based digital risk protection company. Terbium Labs helps organizations detect and remediate data theft, exposure, or misuse across the digital landscape. All services and solutions of Terbium Labs will join the cyber practice of Deloitte in its Detect & Respond operation services. These services by Terbium Labs include a platform for digital risk protection for leveraging artificial intelligence and patented data fingerprinting technologies and machine learning for identifying illicit use of sensitive online data.

Including Terbium Labs, in 2021, it is the third cyber acquisition of Deloitte. It has previously acquired Root9B, LLC (R9B), a cyber-threat hunting provider, and CloudQuest, a cloud security posture management provider. Deloitte demonstrates its commitment to aiding global clients in managing all the cyber threats in running the businesses smoothly in all digital platforms through these acquisitions.


According to Deloitte & Touche LLP’s Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory's infrastructure solution leader and principal, Kieran Norton, finding complex or exclusive data once it leaves an establishment's limit can be exceptionally challenging. Advanced online threat intelligence, paired with remediation of data risk disclosure, needs a balance of progressive technology, a keen understanding of monitoring compliance, and acceptable alteration with an establishment's commercial needs and risk outline.

Adding to it, Deborah Golden, Deloitte & Touche LLP’s Deloitte Financial and Risk Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and the principal said that their industry-leading cyber practice is dedicated to providing our customers with novel and ground-breaking ways to alter their cyber risk postures as they endeavor to reinforce their conviction equity, flexibility, and safety.

Detectify Improves Attack Surface Risk Visibility With New IP Addresses View

Business Wire | August 14, 2023

Detectify, the leading External Attack Surface Management platform powered by elite ethical hackers, today announced enhancements to its platform that can significantly help to elevate an organization’s visibility into its attack surface. Many organizations need help gaining visibility into the IP addresses across their whole environment. Detectify's new capabilities enable organizations to uncover unauthorized assets and ensure regulatory compliance. The attack surface has grown exponentially, not least in how decentralized organizations have become. Over 10% of Detectify customers are hosting data across three continents, illustrating how their products and services are more global than ever. Detectify also notes that 30% of their customer base is leveraging more than 5 service providers, which reflects the growing trend in vulnerabilities as a result of human errors, like server misconfigurations. Moreover, organizations are quickly expanding their digital footprint, with 73% of Detectify customers using IPv6 addresses. With the introduction of the new IP Addresses view, Detectify users gain seamless access to a comprehensive list of all IPs associated with their domains, accompanied by valuable insights, including hosting provider details, geographical locations, and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs). This update is further complemented by interactive charts, enabling users to detect outlier countries or providers, and streamlining the process of identifying potential security concerns. "It's not uncommon for our customers to encounter instances where unauthorized geolocations are used to spin up new machines or witness sudden spikes in hosting activities from approved countries,” said Danwei Tran Luciani, Interim VP of Product at Detectify. “These anomalies can expose organizations to risk, particularly when traditional automated detection methods fall short. Our new IP Addresses view empowers security teams to proactively address these challenges, strengthening their overall cybersecurity posture." Detectify's new IP Addresses view provides security teams with tangible benefits to navigate complex attack surfaces, such as: Uncovering unauthorized assets: For organizations with large attack surfaces, this capability allows users to identify unauthorized assets hosted by unapproved vendors. By instantly detecting an asset being hosted by a non-approved provider, security teams can take swift action and mitigate potential threats. Ensuring regulatory compliance: For businesses operating in highly regulated environments where compliance is paramount, the new view is critical in determining the hosting locations of specific customer data. This enhanced visibility ensures adherence to regulatory requirements and fortifies data privacy measures. The new IP Addresses view is now available to all Detectify customers, reinforcing the company's commitment to empowering security teams with cutting-edge solutions to safeguard organizations’ ever-evolving attack surfaces.

Menlo Security, a leader in cloud security, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced its partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Menlo Security’s Public Sector distributor, making its products available to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and GSA Schedule, NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and OMNIA Partners contracts. “We selected Carahsoft as our partner because of their extensive experience in the Federal Government and Public Sector markets,” said Darrin Curtis, Vice President, Public Sector, Menlo Security. “Providing the products that prevent attacks before they can happen is Menlo’s priority. By working with Carahsoft and its reseller partners, we can help ensure our Federal, State, and Local Governments and agencies are secure from attack.” Earlier this year, Menlo Security received Authorization to Operate (ATO) at the moderate level under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Instead of a detect and response approach, Menlo’s FedRAMP-authorized, Isolation Platform, powered by a patented Isolation Core™ stops threats before they can happen. This means safe browsing of all content from anywhere, all the time. According to DISA’s Requirement and Analysis office, Cloud-Based Internet Isolation (CBII) will improve cybersecurity and avoid $300 million in future spending across the Defense Department. Menlo Security’s isolation-powered platform securely connects users to websites and applications from anywhere, while scaling elastically to meet user demand without sacrificing the user experience.

Menlo Security products are designed with a Zero Trust focus. The company’s Cloud Security platform eliminates malware threats, including ransomware. In addition to these threats, Menlo Security has identified a surge in cyberthreats termed Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) that bypass traditional security defenses. HEAT attacks are a very common class of cyber threats targeting the web browser as a highly vulnerable web attack vector used for 75% of the working day. HEAT attacks employ techniques to evade detection by multiple layers in the current security stack including firewalls, Secure Web Gateways, sandboxing, URL Reputation and phishing detection. “We are pleased to add Menlo Security’s products to our solutions portfolio and offer our customers a modernized, cloud-based approach to cybersecurity,” said Troy Meraw, who leads the Menlo Security Team at Carahsoft. “Together with Menlo Security and our reseller partners, we are committed to helping the Public Sector stay ahead of evolving threats in today’s digital landscape.” Menlo Security’s cloud-based cybersecurity offerings are now available through Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule No. 47QSWA18D008F, SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B, ITES-SW2 Contract W52P1J-20-D-0042, NCPA Contract NCPA01-86, and OMNIA Partners Contract #R191902.

Laminar Expands Data Security Platform with Support for Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive

GlobeNewswire | August 31, 2023

Laminar, the leading data security posture management (DSPM) company, recently acquired by Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced that it has added support for Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive. Customers can now use Laminar to continually discover overexposed and unprotected sensitive data in OneDrive and Google Drive, enabling proactive risk remediation and data leak detection. With this expanded support, organizations can safeguard sensitive data across their entire digital landscape, including major cloud service providers Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure as well as Snowflake, BigQuery, and other SaaS applications. As organizations increasingly leverage cloud file-sharing services like Google Drive and OneDrive for seamless data sharing and storage, the potential risks associated with data breaches, unauthorized access, and compliance violations have grown significantly. Data security and governance teams’ limited visibility into the contents of these files can lead to unprotected sensitive data. Additionally, unintentional file sharing and incorrect permissions can lead to oversharing internally and externally. To address these challenges, the Laminar Data Security Platform takes an agnostic approach to data security; discovering, classifying, and securing sensitive data as it moves across an organization’s digital environment, including collaborative cloud-based services. Laminar provides secure scanning, ensuring data is not removed from the customer environment. With the platform, data security and governance teams can see and secure enterprise data consistently across the entire digital landscape. "Today’s businesses are powered by cloud file-sharing services, which enable easy and rapid collaboration. This is why it is so critical to have a comprehensive approach to data security, so as to not leave these important files unprotected. With the integration of Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive support into the Laminar Data Security Platform, we believe this is a giant step towards solving this sensitive data security challenge," said Amit Shaked, CEO and co-founder at Laminar. "We recognize that data security is a collective responsibility, encompassing every individual within an organization. Laminar is now positioned to provide an agile platform that safeguards sensitive information, no matter where it resides or whether it's utilized by developers, data scientists, or any employee across an organization." The news follows the acquisition of Laminar by Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security Company™. Together, Rubrik and Laminar create the industry’s first complete cyber resilience offering of its kind bringing together cyber recovery and posture across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS.
