Palo Alto Networks Launches Complete Zero Trust Network Security

Palo Alto Networks | May 22, 2021

Palo Alto Networks, a leader in the Forrester Wave Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q3 2020, today introduced five key innovations that make it easier for patrons to adopt Zero Trust across their network security stack.

Today's introductions of SaaS Security, Advanced URL Filtering, DNS Security, Cloud Identity Engine, and new ML-Powered Firewalls allow organizations to simply and effectively implement Zero Trust Network Security with four key benefits:

• Secure access to the proper applications: the primary integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that permits customers to proactively extend secure access to all or any SaaS applications, including those never seen before.

• Secure access for the proper users: The industry's first Cloud Identity Engine allows customers to simply authenticate and authorize their users across enterprise networks, clouds, and applications, regardless of where their identity stores live.

• Enhanced security: The Advanced URL Filtering service offers industry-first prevention of zero-day web attacks with inline machine learning capabilities. The expanded DNS Security capabilities prevent emerging DNS attacks that no other solution protects against.

• Making secure access universally available: These new capabilities are designed to be available on all firewall form factors: hardware, software, and cloud-delivered, making safe access universally available, no matter where users are located. additionally, to the prevailing firewalls, these innovations will run on new ML-Powered Next-Generation Firewall models to enable Zero Trust Network Security across your enterprise — from the littlest branch offices (with the PA-400 Series) to the most important campuses and hyperscale data centers (with the PA-5450 platform).

Most of the hardware and every one of the new features are going to be available in June. the littlest desktop firewall, the PA-410, is going to be available in late summer.

IronNet Enhances Network Detection and Response Solution, IronDefense

IronNet, Inc. | January 05, 2023

IronNet, Inc., a pioneer in transforming cybersecurity through collective defenseSM, has announced that its network detection and response (NDR) solution, IronDefense, now has more features. IronDefense, awarded the best possible grade by SE Labs for Enterprise Advanced Security NDR Detection, enables advanced and early visibility of unidentified cybersecurity threats that have evaded endpoint and firewall detection and infiltrated the network, regardless of whether it is on-premises or in the cloud. With IronNet's most recent NDR enhancements, Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts can use IronDefense to identify VPN misuse, including high abnormal login times, password spraying, and unsuccessful logins, all of which may be suggestive of brute force attacks or unauthorized access attempts. Additional analytics enhancements enable the identification of ongoing patterns of both randomized-timing and fixed-interval beacon activity, as well as the detection of DNS tunnels utilizing innovative encoding techniques employed by cybercriminals. The IronNet product development team has also improved IronDefense's usability. Specifically, new sensors can now be automatically commissioned and upgraded without the intervention of SOC personnel. IronDefense allows customers utilizing SentinelOne endpoint detection and response (EDR) to remotely establish and update network inventory and isolate a device in a SentinelOne-deployed network through the Entity page of the IronDefense user interface. CarbonBlack and Crowdstrike endpoints offer equivalent capabilities. About IronNet, Inc. IronNet, Inc., founded in 2014 by GEN (Ret.) Keith Alexander, is a global leader in cybersecurity that is revolutionizing how enterprises safeguard their networks by providing the first-ever Collective Defense technology operating at scale. IronNet, which employs a number of ex-NSA cybersecurity operators with both offensive and defensive cyber experience, incorporates extensive tradecraft knowledge into its industry-leading technologies to address the world's most difficult cyber problems.

SteelCloud and Telos Corporation Collaborate to Enhance NIST RMF Compliance

Telos Corporation | January 09, 2023

SteelCloud LLC, a leading CIS and STIG compliance automation software developer and Telos Corporation, a renowned provider of cyber, enterprise, and cloud security solutions to the world's most security-conscious organizations, recently announced entering into a partnership to assist customers in reducing the complexity of NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) compliance. Customers gain access to all seven RMF phases via a unified, automated solution. SteelCloud's ConfigOS capabilities take care of the identify/ categorize, select, and implement components of RMF for technical assets. ConfigOS examines an asset, determining whether Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) apply, scanning against the STIG standards, identifying compliance indicators, and automating the remediation of findings. Meanwhile, Xacta incorporates and uses this information during the RMF's assessment and authorization processes, as well as when the monitor step is initiated once authorization to operate (ATO) is obtained. Working together, ConfigOS and Xacta drive decisions to address identification and selection problems while reporting important indicator metrics required to achieve and sustain ATO. STIG and vulnerability data from ConfigOS are integrated into Xacta and mapped to appropriate requirements as part of Assessment and Authorization (A&A), providing customers with a streamlined approach to gaining necessary permissions. Xacta's workflow automation streamlines the whole NIST RMF workflow, managing validation, analysis, documentation, and accreditation processes from start to end.
