ENTERPRISE SECURITY, PLATFORM SECURITY, SOFTWARE SECURITY
Prnewswire | May 26, 2023
Blackpoint Cyber, the elite technology-focused cybersecurity company providing its streamlined security suite via managed service providers (MSPs), announced today the launch of its newest product, Managed Application Control, continuing Blackpoint's investment in building out the most comprehensive MSP security ecosystem available. The new solution goes beyond traditional approaches to application control, simplifying security management and improving productivity for MSPs and the businesses they serve.
Threat actors often evade endpoint protection systems by "living off the land," or misusing legitimate IT tools native to the target environment. Managed Application Control protects from these attacks with a uniquely curated, constantly updated block list of applications by Blackpoint's threat intelligence team. The approach stands in contrast to pure zero-trust or deny-all methods of application control, which produce operational bottlenecks. With Managed Application Control, organizations can still create custom rules and allow exceptions. But with Blackpoint's newest offering, IT administrators can reduce time spent on allowlists and endless verification requests.
"Our team knows the attacker tradecraft, so introducing another layer of security to our already robust ecosystem through Managed Application Control, at no additional cost, just makes sense," said Jon Murchison, CEO and founder of Blackpoint Cyber. "Protecting our partners and their customers is our primary goal, and we are committed to providing MSPs with an easily accessible bundle of solutions. It comes down to providing our partners with the most value on the market, including this new product, so they can protect their customers and focus on their margins and operations. It's extra productivity with no extra cost."
Blackpoint's team of top-tier experts and products focus on blocking risky and malicious applications. When an application is blocked, Blackpoint's security operations center (SOC) intervenes to investigate and stop any intrusion attempts, providing unparalleled protection and peace of mind for MSPs and their clients.
"At Blackpoint, we have always focused on threat actor mentality so we can stop threats as early in the attack cycle as possible," said David Rushmer, director of Blackpoint Cyber's Adversary Pursuit Group. "With Managed Application Control, the ability to dynamically respond to potential intrusions across the threat landscape means improved protection for our customers."
The offering is the latest addition to Blackpoint Response, a packaged bundle of integrated cybersecurity solutions that includes Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Managed Defender for Endpoint, Vulnerability Management, and Cloud Response for a unified defense against cyber threats.
ABOUT BLACKPOINT CYBER
Blackpoint Cyber offers a world-class, nation-state-grade cybersecurity ecosystem serving the MSP community. Using its own software and Security Operations Center (SOC), Blackpoint's true 24/7 Managed Detection & Response (MDR) service not only detects breaches earlier than any other solution on the market, but also provides an actual response rather than just an alert to keep MSPs and their clients' networks safe from widespread damage.

Cybercriminals around the world are using generative artificial intelligence (AI) to execute malicious attacks that can take down companies and governments. SentinelOne (NYSE: S), a global leader in autonomous security and pioneer in deep learning models and neural networks, plans to use the same technologies to defeat them. The company today unveiled a revolutionary threat-hunting platform that integrates multiple layers of AI technology to deliver unparalleled security capabilities and real-time, autonomous response to attacks across the entire enterprise. The news was announced during RSA Conference 2023, the premier cybersecurity event being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
“Today marks a paradigm shift in cybersecurity,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO, SentinelOne. “AI is among the most disruptive technologies of our time, and with our new capabilities, we can unleash its power to help companies control all aspects of enterprise security - from visibility to response - with unmatched speed and efficiency.”
A first-of-its-kind offering, the SentinelOne threat-hunting platform seamlessly fuses real-time, embedded neural networks and a large language model (LLM)-based natural language interface, supercharging users with AI to monitor and operate all security data and boost their productivity and scale their operations. Through the platform, security teams can ask complex threat and adversary-hunting questions and run operational commands to manage their entire enterprise environment using natural language, and within seconds receive deep insights and full, transparent, correlated results to prompt actions across the cybersecurity ecosystem.
An Intelligent, Action-Oriented Approach
Built on the industry’s most performant security data lake, the SentinelOne threat-hunting platform aggregates and correlates information from device and log telemetry across endpoint, cloud, network and user data, and not only delivers insights, but recommends response actions that can be immediately executed - from mitigation and investigation to endpoint, cloud and user management.
“Our cybersecurity AI platform represents a major leap forward in cybersecurity,” said Ric Smith, Chief Product and Technology Officer, SentinelOne. “By allowing users to automate response and take action without the need for coding skills and process and analyze petabytes of data in near-real time, it promises to radically simplify security operations and empower defenders in unprecedented and unforeseen ways.”
The Future of Cybersecurity
The SentinelOne platform will also allow users to lay a solid foundation for the future and secure tomorrow, today.
“Bad actors are increasingly employing AI-based, automated tools to infiltrate all facets of networks with unprecedented speed,” Weingarten said. “With our unmatched experience and capabilities, organizations can quickly scale their cybersecurity operations to stay ahead of these evolving threats and create a strong structural foundation for cybersecurity defenses for years to come.”
A Force for Good
And they can do it in a responsible, ethical way. “At SentinelOne, our mission is to be a force for good, and our unwavering commitment to ensuring that our cutting-edge technologies are used safely, ethically and responsibly is evident in every aspect of our platform,” Weingarten said. “There is a huge shortage of cybersecurity talent, and in advancing the capabilities of skilled security practitioners, our new capabilities will allow organizations to quickly scale to secure the cloud and avoid the storm of automated and fast-flux attacks that adversaries using generative AI can create. In addition, we allow customers to retain complete control of their data, reinforcing our dedication to keeping sensitive information in the hands of its rightful owners.”
The new capabilities will be delivered as part of SentinelOne’s threat-hunting experience and are available in limited preview today. For more information, please visit www.sentinelone.com.

Imperva, Inc., (@Imperva) the cybersecurity leader that protects critical applications, APIs, and data, anywhere at scale, and Fortanix, Inc. (@Fortanix), the Data Security company powered by Confidential Computing, announce that they have signed a partnership agreement, and have each joined the other’s strategic partner program.
This partnership brings together two of the most innovative and trusted cybersecurity companies focused on multicloud data protection. The joint offerings from Imperva and Fortanix will provide the ability to manage the entire data security workflow for customers ensuring data privacy and compliance.
Imperva now offers Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM), a highly scalable data security platform that delivers unified cryptographic and privacy services such as encryption, tokenization, dynamic data masking (DDM), secrets management, and enterprise key management. The solution works across multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) and provides an “easy button” to secure over 100 services. Fortanix DSM is simple to deploy and is offered in two editions — on-premises and a cloud-based SaaS solution — providing data security controls with both backed by FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification.
"We’re thrilled to partner with Imperva and take a best-in-class solution to the market together,” says Anand Kashyap, CEO of Fortanix. “With Imperva’s data discovery and classification capabilities and the Fortanix Data Security Manager SaaS and multicloud offering, customers have an end-to-end solution for securing workloads across the entire Data Lifecycle. This solution will help customers accelerate their data journey to the cloud while meeting the highest level of compliance.”
Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) is a robust and scalable hybrid, multicloud platform for data discovery and classification, activity monitoring, access controls, security analytics, threat detection, and compliance reporting. Imperva DSF provides protection for unstructured, semi-, and structured data — both on-premises and in the cloud.
Organizations continue to seek the most efficient and effective data security solutions to address multiple use cases such as sensitive data protection, insider threat detection, and data risk management. They must also meet compliance and privacy requirements while operating diverse ecosystems at scale and consolidating legacy tools, all without impacting the speed and agility of the application development team to achieve the highest level of ROI.
With the combined strength of Imperva DSF and Fortanix DSM, this data security partnership will benefit organizations that find their traditional controls are no longer sufficient as they move data workloads and applications to the cloud. These data security solutions address data security and privacy regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, PCI DSS, and HIPAA by employing methods to help protect and control data confidentiality, data integrity, and data access across the hybrid multicloud environment.
“With the unprecedented explosion of data over recent decades and every day, unknown sensitive data might be anywhere — potentially exposed, and unsecured. But with this new partnership between Imperva and Fortanix, companies can now discover, classify, and secure their data using encryption and tokenization wherever it resides,” says Dan Neault, SVP and GM of Data Security at Imperva. “Using the intelligence and flexibility of Imperva DSF combined with the power of the Fortanix DSM, finding sensitive data and taking the right steps to secure it is now easier than ever.”
Additionally, Imperva is now able to provide customers with Fortanix DSM via the Imperva End-User License Agreement (EULA) providing streamlined procurement via a single vendor for sales, implementation, training, support, and services.
