GlobalLogic Announces Partnership with Cybereason to Develop Advanced, Intelligent Cyber Protection Solutions

GlobalLogic_min | December 01, 2021

GlobalLogic Inc., a Hitachi Group Company and leader in Digital Engineering, today announced that it has been selected by Cybereason, the leader in operation-centric attack protection, to help develop its next-generation cyber security platform and services. Deployed by large enterprises, governments, and major cloud providers worldwide, Cybereason’s future-ready attack protection spans across endpoints, the enterprise, the cloud, and everywhere the defenders battle cyber criminals. The collaboration will draw on GlobalLogic’s broad and deep expertise in security and data management software across devices through to the cloud, including the integration of advanced artificial intelligence (AI).

The program is one of the largest won by GlobalLogic in this field to date. It requires quickly scaling to hundreds of specialized engineers supporting Cybereason’s development roadmap over the next year. This program scope highlights the market’s need for stronger, better cybersecurity as cloud use, network expansions and other technology usage continued their upward trend and surged during the pandemic.

“Cyber threats have become considerably more frequent and sophisticated in recent years. We’ve become dangerously more vulnerable in areas traditional security solutions could not adequately protect—the network and the cloud,” said Rajaram Radhakrishnan, CRO, GlobalLogic. “Having operated in the cybersecurity space for more than a decade, GlobalLogic has become adept at successfully responding to complex requirements. Cybereason is a premier example of a crucial innovator building disruptive defense solutions, redefining what government-grade protection can be. We are honored to now be a part of their team.”

Cybereason delivers the most comprehensive protection available on the market today, analyzing more than 23 trillion security-related events per week—five times the volume of any other market solution. Using its patented Malicious Operations (MalOps™) engine, Cybereason reveals the full attack story across every device, user identity, application, and cloud deployment. One of Cybereason’s key solutions delivering this capability is the company’s Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution—a unified detection and response tool that thwarts malicious operations across the entire IT stack. XDR is one of the several advanced technologies that GlobalLogic’s team will help Cybereason develop and enhance through the partnership.

“Cybereason’ operation-centric security approach is helping defenders combat sophisticated and persistent threats to their organizations. While other companies have security analysts chasing alerts without offering valuable insight, Cybereason helps organizations around the world leverage our award-winning technology each day to outthink and outpace attackers,GlobalLogic’s track record along with its responsiveness and collaborative approach to R&D stood out as major factors in finalizing our partnership. Together, we will deliver next-gen cyber defense solutions that will help technology users better control their sensitive data and operations—no matter where they reside.”

Sam Curry, Chief Security Officer, Cybereason

As the world’s critical infrastructures become more instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent, the amount of cybersecurity-related data about those infrastructures has grown at a rate far exceeding the capacity of traditional cybersecurity management systems. This security data about network traffic, access control exceptions, and other unsafe or unsecure conditions was already stressing our systems’ ability to use that data. Facing exploding cybersecurity data volumes, organizations are struggling to make real-time decisions and continue to maintain the integrity and security of their systems. The conventional approach first requires data to be stored in a database and then queries are run after the fact to detect or determine the cause of problems.

Deloitte Launches Expanded Cloud Security Management Platform

Deloitte | May 10, 2022

Deloitte has enhanced existing features to offer Cloud Security Management (CSM) by Deloitte to assist US executives worried about visibility into the security of their cloud workloads and apps. The platform of services and solutions involves cloud security policy orchestration (CSPO), cyber predictive analytics, attack surface management, and cyber cloud managed services (CCMS), all of which can be used independently or in multi-cloud environments on Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and other public clouds. "We integrated newly acquired capabilities with our existing technologies and leading global security services to help our clients secure and enhance their cloud environments more efficiently and effectively. We worked to ensure our platform integrates and operates with the major cloud providers' security capabilities so that our clients can more easily scale their cloud security programs and apply security throughout the systems development lifecycle – even when non-standard security requirements are involved. Building upon the strength of the CSM by Deloitte platform, we plan to expand it over time as client demands change and the technology landscape evolves." Vikram Kunchala, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber Cloud leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP Deborah Golden, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP said that "While many are eager to accelerate cloud adoption in a secure, resilient and agile manner, that process is not always easy or simple – particularly when digital transformations occur at various stages, multiple cloud environments are involved, and regulatory compliance requires a variety of shared infrastructure situations, inclusive of third-party requirements. Whether organizations want to leverage our advanced technologies or large practice of highly skilled cyber specialists – or both – CSM by Deloitte acts as a potential change agent for organizations that want to operate confidently and securely in the cloud environment even as that threat landscape evolves."
