NetWitness Launches Comprehensive XDR Offerings for Next Generation Security

NetWitness
NetWitness, a globally trusted provider of cybersecurity technologies and incident response, today announced NetWitness XDR, a family of products and capabilities delivering comprehensive detection and response on premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid of the two. This new offering and product architecture delivers the full range of deployment options enterprises seek today to meet their unique cybersecurity needs and use cases.

NetWitness XDR delivers a robust set of capabilities enabling extended detection and response (XDR) and helping customers stay ahead of the most sophisticated cyber threats. These include:

  1. Unified collection, data, and visibility across multiple security layers
  2. Automatic enrichment of data using any technical or business source
  3. A wide toolset of detection technologies including, but not limited to, advanced behavioral analysis
  4. External and internal threat intelligence to identify known security risks and threat actors
  5. Truly insightful context, visualization, and investigation tools
  6. Threat hunting tools and methodologies to identify previously unknown threats
  7. Highly repeatable and measurable incident investigation and response processes
  8. A strong array of both automated and human response options

“NetWitness has enjoyed the trust of some of the world’s most security sensitive organizations because of its unique ability to monitor the entire attack surface across the network, endpoint, cloud, IoT, logs and more,” said CEO of RSA and NetWitness, Rohit Ghai. “We have been delivering XDR capability to the market for several years and today we are delighted to announce new innovations in the platform and reintroduce it to the market as NetWitness XDR.”

Under this new model, NetWitness XDR will be comprised of three main product lines that showcase its uniquely powerful support for all XDR use cases. NetWitness Platform XDR 12 is the newest major release of NetWitness Platform. This technology stack, typically deployed as customer-managed software or hosted by MSSPs, has been enhanced to focus on detection capabilities that identify threats faster and decrease their impact. The company’s new cloud-native SaaS version will be known as NetWitness Vision XDR and is currently in design preview. The third product line, NetWitness XDR Cloud Services, is a set of optional SaaS applications that take advantage of the cloud’s inherent elastic nature to deliver flexible and cost-effective components which can be used to augment either Platform XDR or Vision XDR.

“Our network-forward approach allows us to stand out in this emerging space and highlights NetWitness XDR’s ability to detect across customers’ growing number of systems and devices. “We are embracing the belief that the best XDR must be consumable on prem, in the cloud, and hybrid.”

Director of Product Management and Research, Kevin Bowers

Developed initially in 1996, NetWitness began as a government-sponsored research project to inspect network packets for cyberthreats and tools to detect and respond to them. Since then, the technology has continuously evolved and been innovated to tackle today’s most complex attacks. NetWitness now features fully integrated components for network, log, endpoint and IoT detection and response that drive its threat intelligence and security orchestration platform, NetWitness Orchestrator. With its long history and global footprint, NetWitness XDR integrates directly with the world’s most critical and widely deployed tools, as well as many specialized and industry-specific solutions.

NetWitness XDR will host demonstrations at its booth at RSA Conference this year for Platform XDR and Vision XDR.

Keeper Streamlines Compliance Processes With Granular Sharing Enforcements

Keeper Security, Inc. | January 11, 2024

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, passkeys, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, announces Granular Sharing Enforcements will soon be available for all products in the Keeper® platform. Granular Sharing enables administrators to enforce detailed creating and sharing permissions at the user level. By implementing these permissions, organizations can ensure employees only have access to the resources necessary for their roles, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches and lateral movement within a network. "It's critical for organizations to have security solutions that help them adhere to increasing regulations and compliance requirements," said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. "Granular permission control helps organizations enhance their security posture by restricting access to sensitive information and systems. With Granular Sharing Enforcements, it's easier than ever for IT administrators to better control the principle of least privilege and streamline operations within their organizations." Keeper's added Granular Sharing Enforcement policies provide more detailed restrictions that administrators can apply to users for both creating and sharing records. Most employees do not need access to all of the data or functionalities within an organization, and many industries and geographical regions have specific regulations and compliance requirements regarding data protection and privacy, including HIPAA, GDPR, PCI DSS and SOX. Granular permission controls enable organizations to align with local and industry regulations by allowing them to define and enforce access policies. This helps in ensuring the organization is compliant with industry standards and legal requirements. Key features of Keeper's Granular Sharing Enforcements include: Auditing: Keeper provides clear alerting and reporting on over 100 different event types. Version control: Only a small subset of users have permissions to update or share records, helping teams ensure information is consistent and accurate. Seamless access on any device: Keeper provides the same user experience across platforms, ensuring cross functionality and ease of use, whether on web, desktop or mobile. Encryption: Keeper provides secure sharing with elliptic curve encryption, ensuring cybercriminals cannot intercept passwords or other shared records in transit. Keeper Administrators can easily customize permissions to best suit the compliance needs of their organization. Administrators modify permissions in the Enforcement Policies section of the Admin Console for the chosen role by selecting Creating and Sharing. Most permissions are activated by default for maximum security. Enforcements have been designed to be simple and powerful, allowing admins to choose the appropriate settings for their unique needs. Granular Sharing Enforcements will be available for all sharing needs within Keeper's Enterprise Password Manager, Keeper Secrets Manager and KeeperPAM. With Keeper's zero-knowledge password management and security platform, IT administrators have complete visibility into employee password practices, enabling them to monitor password use and enforce password security policies, including strong, unique passwords, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and other security policies. Keeper Secrets Manager® is a fully managed cloud-based, zero-knowledge platform for securing infrastructure secrets such as API keys, database passwords, access keys, certificates and any type of confidential data. Its latest offering, KeeperPAM™, provides next-generation Privileged Access Management (PAM) that is disrupting the traditional PAM market. KeeperPAM delivers enterprise-grade password, secrets and privileged connection management within a unified SaaS platform that is cost-effective, easy to use and simple to deploy. KeeperPAM enables least-privilege access with zero-trust and zero-knowledge security. Enterprises select Keeper because of its strong security architecture, ability to support federated and passwordless authentication with any identity provider, seamless integration into on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments and ease of use across desktop and mobile devices.

Our next-generation privileged access management solution deploys in minutes and seamlessly integrates with any tech stack to prevent breaches, reduce help desk costs and ensure compliance.
