MRK Technologies | April 18, 2022
MRK Technologies, a cybersecurity risk management company, has announced a collaboration with Horizon3.ai to assist its clients tackle the ever-evolving ransomware threat with a new Autonomous Penetration Tests as a Service (APTaaS). Penetration testing can be automated and executed as often as needed to guarantee all systems are safe utilizing Horizon3.ai's NodeZero platform.
John Tookman, Chief Revenue Officer and Senior Vice President of MRK Technologies said that "We pride ourselves on continuously bringing the best technology to our customers. We're excited to add Horizon3.ai's NodeZero platform to our managed security services, which allows us to help ensure our customers' systems are secure."
He further added that, "In the last couple of years, we've doubled down on our efforts to build out our Security Operations Center in order to provide best-in-class service offerings to our customers. Adding APTaaS is just the next step in continuing to achieve our mission of helping our customers achieve a stronger security posture amidst the ever-evolving threat landscape."
Annual penetration testing is often seen as a compliance necessity rather than a value addition. Many pentests merely provide a snapshot of a network that is only relevant for a limited time. This new continuous APTaaS is a real SaaS product that assists cybersecurity teams in constantly identifying and fixing vulnerabilities in their systems before attackers can use them.
"Threat actors know how to chain together network misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, harvested credentials, and dangerous product defaults to create attack vectors you never imagined would be exploitable. Our partnership with MRK Technologies allows us to provide APTaaS to customers, helping them to harden their security postures with pentests that can run as often as they wish."
Snehal Antani, CEO and co-founder of Horizon3.ai
This new product complements MRK Technologies' Security Operations Center's existing managed securities portfolio, which includes Managed Detection & Response (MDR/EDR), Managed Security Information & Event Management (SIEM), Managed Deception Technology, and Managed Network Detection.

EnGenius Technologies Inc | November 12, 2021
EnGenius Technologies Inc., a worldwide manufacturer of future-proof enterprise networking solutions, today introduced two brand new cloud-managed Wi-Fi 6 security access points, the ECW230S and ECW220S with the EnGenius AirGuard™ system.
As remote network access and a growing number of Bluetooth/IoT devices create more attack surfaces than ever before, enterprise networks are increasingly vulnerable to data breaches and cyber-attacks. In response, EnGenius has expanded its security features to include new Wi-Fi 6 cloud-managed security access points ideal for information-sensitive financial, medical, and distributed enterprise networks.
Unlike other Wi-Fi security solutions that scan outside peak times, the EnGenius Cloud security APs come equipped with EnGenius AirGuard™, an intelligent wireless security system that identifies and neutralizes threats 24/7. Using dedicated scanning radios, AirGuard™ security APs scan the environment non-stop for attacks—evil twins, rogue APs, flood detection, man-in-the-middle attacks, and radio frequency jammers—without degrading network performance at all.
The new security APs also feature professional-grade RF spectrum analysis that visualizes radio frequencies at a glance to ensure all SSIDs are authorized, and the most efficient channels are utilized. Its zero-wait DFS avoids disruption from radar detection and provides an uninterrupted change of channels when needed. In addition to identifying unauthorized devices, the security APs also detect all Bluetooth devices nearby.
Keeping your network secure is challenging. According to recent statistics, phishing is responsible for 90% of enterprise data breaches that are costing billions of dollars in lost revenue and downtime. Rogue devices are often the gateway to such attacks. EnGenius is moving aggressively into the Wi-Fi network security space, offering end users a seamless all-in-one cloud-managed security solution without the need to purchase multiple off-the-shelf solutions to handle costly cyberattacks.
Wireless intrusion detection system (WIDS) - for threat detection
Wireless intrusion protection system (WIPS) - for attack remediation
Dedicated scanning radios - for 24/7 wireless security monitoring
RF spectrum analysis - for identifying clean channels and ensuring all SSIDs are legitimate
Wi-Fi 6 technology - for high-performance Wi-Fi in high-density, multi-device environments
