We want to democratise Cyber Security, by removing the cost and the complexity.The Robo Shadow Cyber Platform effectively is an attack surface management platform aimed at helping organisations quickly understand their cyber-attack surface. This is so people can See what the hackers see when they are planning their attacks. The easy-to-use Platform will also give all the helpful hints in closing the vulnerabilities that Penetration Tests and Vulnerability Assessments uncover. This cutting-edge software has a straightforward approach to how Cyber Information is displayed and digested by the users, supported by an extensive AI-driven cloud backend.

When asked about the commercial model for Robo Shadow, the team states: "We want people to use our software for free and will only have to pay if they require advanced services like support, penetration testing and consultancy. That way, anyone can get the free tech they need, whether they are a School, Business or even a Government Institution. If need be, they can pay for a subscription to use our internal team to help support and advise on the cyber outputs generated by the Platform. Free users to the Platform will still have access to developer style support."

Currently, the initial offering has everything from Vulnerability Scanners, Windows Defender Agents and Office 365 integration. Future versions of the Platform will include Google, Microsoft & Amazon Cloud Integration, Mac and Linux Cyber Agents and an array of technology for businesses to manage their Cyber-attack surface and deliver daily Sec Ops aspect to their business.

The team have enjoyed a decent first run boosted and helped by their popular Android App available in the App store. The App allows people to remotely scan their networks both inside and out for vulnerabilities to understand their attack surface better. Originally the Android App was built as a proof of concept to demonstrate how simple the tech needs to be to make a significant effect in helping people understand their Cyber Attack surface.

LogPoint introduces native SOAR into core SIEM offering, advancing cybersecurity automation and efficiency

PR Newswire | September 22, 2021

LogPoint, the global cybersecurity innovator, announced the successful completion of its acquisition of Tel Aviv-based SecBI. SecBI's universal SOAR and XDR technology will integrate natively with LogPoint to form an integrated, foundational Security Operations platform. SOAR will be released with LogPoint 7.0 in December 2021, and XDR will be introduced in Q2 2022. "With the tidal wave of cyberattacks threatening businesses and societies across the globe, a disruption of the way organizations respond to cybersecurity incidents is required," said Jesper Zerlang, CEO LogPoint. "Building on LogPoint SIEM and UEBA to effectively detect threats, orchestration and automation of the response to incidents is key to advancing cybersecurity. Consequently, SOAR will be a capability included in LogPoint to advance foundational cybersecurity." With the release of LogPoint 7.0, all present and future LogPoint customers will be immediately able to apply SOAR to their security operations at the click of a button, automating repetitive tasks, orchestrating threat remediation workflows, and enabling autonomous investigation, prioritization, and execution of playbooks that reduce human involvement and speed up incident response. Customers will receive SOAR capabilities within their LogPoint Core SIEM license. "LogPoint SOAR has been in production with select customers over the past few months and we're thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive feedback that analysts have more confidence that incidents are dealt with appropriately thanks to the automatic playbooks," said Christian Have, CTO, LogPoint. "Our customers have reported a significant decrease in the time it takes to detect and respond to a phishing email – down from three hours with manual processes to 10 minutes with automated LogPoint SOAR playbooks." In today's cybersecurity market, SOAR is employed mainly by larger enterprises and managed security service providers (MSSPs) handling a considerable number of incidents. Integrating native SOAR into LogPoint will dramatically increase the effectiveness and precision of incident response without the need for dedicated management resources, making it an attractive option for organizations of all sizes, including mid-market cybersecurity. "SOAR is not only about coping with the increasing number of cybersecurity incidents. By including SOAR in the LogPoint SIEM solution, we will enable organizations of all sizes, especially companies that do not have a fully-staffed 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC), to establish proper and relevant incident-handling processes and dramatically increase quality and speed in their response capabilities," said Have. "It also helps those organizations assess the efficiency of new cybersecurity tools and measures." The acquisition was first announced on September 1, 2021. Following finalization, SecBI will fully integrate into LogPoint's organization. The new team will make key contributions to LogPoint's continued development: SecBI founder and VP of Business Development Doron Davidson has been appointed LogPoint's VP of Global Services and will lead LogPoint Israel as the company expands its presence in Tel Aviv. The LogPoint move to acquire SecBI and integrate its SOAR and XDR technology into the LogPoint solution is recognized by industry analysts. In a recently published research brief by Omdia headlined "LogPoint Adds SOAR via SecBI Acquisition, Builds Momentum as a Top-Tier SecOps Vendor," analyst Eric Parizo concludes: "Already a strong SIEM player in Europe, LogPoint's new SOAR and XDR offerings, combined with its own notable TDIR advancements, position the vendor to compete globally for a growing share of enterprise customers."

XM Cyber Confirms Cortex XSOAR Integration with Palo Alto Networks

XM Cyber | May 05, 2021

XM Cyber, the multi-award-winning leader in Attack-Centric Exposure Prioritization, revealed today's integration with Palo Alto Network's Cortex XSOAR security orchestration automation and response (SOAR) platform. This new integration adds one-click access to risk-free attack simulation inside the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace, allowing security teams to see the entire path of a possible attack. Security and network teams are constantly debating whether a specific alert is a high risk, low risk, impacts mission-critical assets or should wait for the next patch. When it comes to securing an organization's critical assets, the joint strength of XM Cyber and Cortex XSOAR provides teams with the contextual data they need to make the right choices possible. The integration enriches events and incidents in Cortex XSOAR with critical information, including: • The ability to determine whether business-critical assets are at risk • The name and a description of the attack technique • Detailed information on all impacted assets, including those deemed mission-critical • Identification of choke points, i.e. whether the asset resides in line with multiple attack paths • Context-sensitive recommendations for remediation ranked in order of importance • A link to the XM Cyber platform for running attack simulations This data assists security analysts in properly understanding their network environment and identifying user errors, bad IT hygiene, misconfigurations, and misplaced credentials, which can also go unnoticed. Cortex XSOAR's industry-leading automation and orchestration tools and features, combined with an attack-centric exposure approach to threat simulation, will help companies avoid 99% of real threats to their network while only addressing the 1% that matters. About XM Cyber XM Cyber is the world's leading provider of attack path management solutions.
