Nozomi Networks Raises the Bar on Delivering Prioritized Actionable Intelligence for OT/IoT Networks to Accelerate Responses to Security Threats

Nozomi Networks | October 27, 2021

Nozomi Networks Inc., the leader in OT and IoT security, today announced new updates in Vantage™, the first cloud-based OT/IoT network security solution that equips security professionals and industrial operators with actionable, AI-driven insights to manage risk and speed precise remediation. The new enhancements help eliminate “alert fatigue” by narrowing down the hundreds of notifications security teams have to parse to determine the severity of vulnerabilities.

“With attacks on OT and IoT infrastructure occurring daily, we know that organizations are overwhelmed with prioritizing risk reduction efforts, responding to alerts, and accelerating the detection of malware,The latest release of Vantage is designed to not only detect threats in critical infrastructure but also help prioritize and guide remediation steps quickly and efficiently. Only Vantage can provide these capabilities at the scale of the largest OT and IoT networks in the world.”

Andrea Carcano, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Nozomi Networks

According to Ponemon Research, 52% of organizations say they are at a disadvantage in responding to vulnerabilities because they use a manual process and 72% say difficulty in prioritizing vulnerabilities contributes to patch delays. ESG Research finds 34% of cyber security professionals reported their biggest vulnerability management challenge is prioritizing which vulnerabilities to remediate.

“Nozomi Networks has a proven reputation for continuous innovation and these latest updates only add to it,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Danielle VanZandt. “With the explosive growth of IoT devices in industrial environments, now more than ever, security professionals need faster paths to actionable intelligence and tools that support the best possible response. Nozomi Networks has stepped up with a solution that fills the gap.”

In this latest upgrade, Nozomi Networks continues to expand vulnerability management automation and intelligence with new prioritization metrics for vulnerability assessments. New Vantage features include:

Prioritized Vulnerability Management

With the new vulnerability dashboard, operators can quickly visualize all the OT and IoT vulnerabilities in the network, prioritize which vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk, and assess the level of effort to address the issues network-wide. Vantage provides:

  • Actionable insights on remediation steps, patches, and upgrades.
  • Built-in analytics scores that highlight which corrections will have the biggest impact on risk reduction, as well as identify which may be more labor-intensive.

In addition to the Vantage vulnerability management process, Vantage leverages an AI-driven threat detection engine that analyzes endpoint and network configurations, traffic flows, and network packet contents to provide the deepest and most sophisticated insights for OT networks in the industry.

Customized Playbooks for Precise Response

In addition to customizing alerts for specific threats and vulnerabilities, now security professionals have the option to supplement these notifications with custom playbooks designed to guide response plans for each alert. These playbooks:

  • Precisely guide remediation steps for specific threats, simplifying and accelerating operational response.
  • Can be customized to specify workflows for each alert and to address individual customer environments and workflows.
  • Can be shared between organizations.

Streamlined Operations

With Vantage, security professionals can quickly manage multiple hundreds or thousands of sites with limited resources.

  • The SaaS-based solution is easy to deploy and runs in the cloud, providing near zero-cost setup and ongoing maintenance.
  • Automated analysis and playbooks simplify remediation steps and costs to enable smaller teams to have more visibility across more devices and more sites.
  • Vantage also makes it feasible to share security data with partners, vendors, and other applications from the centralized cloud repository without opening the network up to external users.

iboss Achieves FedRAMP Authorization for its Zero Trust Edge Cloud Security Solution

iboss, Inc. | July 29, 2022

iboss, the leading Zero Trust Edge cloud security provider, announces that it has obtained Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authorization. The achievement is reflective of the company’s commitment to work alongside federal agencies to protect government entities and civilians from growing and increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats. Earlier this year, the United States Office of Management and Budget unveiled a strategy designed to prevent damaging hacks and breaches by moving federal agencies toward a zero trust cybersecurity approach. The announcement followed a 2021 Biden Administration executive order aimed at protecting federal networks by modernizing government cybersecurity, including through the implementation of zero trust security architecture as defined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The iboss platform is a purpose-built, patented, cloud delivered security solution that has been trusted by organizations worldwide to implement Zero Trust architecture as laid out specifically in the NIST 800-207 Special Publication. The company’s containerized cloud architecture makes it the only platform that can control what NIST refers to as the “Implicit Trust Zone” to ensure that all data and resources are completely private. The FedRAMP authorization now extends iboss’s leading platform to all U.S. government customers. “Our Zero Trust Edge platform prevents breaches by making applications and data inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to securely and directly connect to resources from anywhere. “In today’s work-from-anywhere world, protecting sensitive information, regardless of who is accessing it or where, is critical. We look forward to continuing to extend our platform and expertise to U.S. government agencies.” iboss CEO Paul Martini A Zero Trust Architecture built on iboss consolidates network security technologies (SWG, CASB, DLP, IPS, malware defense, browser isolation, firewall) into a single unified cloud platform and eliminates the need for a VPN while securing any device, regardless of location. By making all applications private, iboss eliminates the top three initial ransomware infection vectors as identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). With applications, data and services made accessible only through the iboss Zero Trust Edge, cyber risk is greatly reduced, breaches and data loss are prevented, and visibility and security are delivered consistently throughout an organization. FedRAMP is a US government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
