Orca Security | February 22, 2023
On February 21, 2023, Orca Security, a leader in agentless cloud security, announced the addition of ThreatOptix's agent-based runtime protection and enforcement to its Orca Cloud Security Platform. The new capability expands Orca's industry leadership by offering customers a choice in how they secure their cloud-native applications, including virtual machines, containers, and Kubernetes applications. While remaining committed to agentless security, Orca's latest offering strengthens its comprehensive coverage and visibility across the cloud estate.

Through a strategic partnership with ThreatOptix, all agent deployments, policy management, and data will be seamlessly integrated into the Orca Platform and offered as a single platform.
When it comes to securing modern workloads, security teams face numerous obstacles, such as compliance monitoring, vulnerability management, and advanced threat detection and prevention. Orca's sole focus has been delivering superior agentless capabilities to tackle these problems. However, there are specific mission-critical applications for which enterprises may need an agent for advanced runtime protection and enforcement.

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.
