To Strengthen AI-Powered XDR across MSP Security Solutions, Barracuda Selects SentinelOne

SentinelOne | January 31, 2022

SentinelOne
Barracuda Networks, Inc., a valued partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, has selected the Singularity XDR platform of SentinelOne to enable MSPs to prevent, identify, and autonomously respond to threats at machine speed with AI-powered XDR.

Barracuda protects over 200,000 customers worldwide from attacks on their data and personnel. Due to SentinelOne's better API capabilities, flexible workflow integrations, and platform efficacy, Barracuda chose SentinelOne to strengthen its endpoint protection and response portfolio. Additionally, MSPs who use SKOUT Managed XDR and SentinelOne will benefit from streamlined analysis, detection, and incident reporting due to the connection.

“Security teams are challenged with monitoring and protecting every edge of their network, yet are drowning in data and alerts,There aren’t enough skilled people to operate cybersecurity products at scale. Our alliance with SentinelOne will empower MSPs to stay one step ahead of attackers and address intrusion attempts in real-time.”

Neal Bradbury, SVP, Barracuda MSP

Organizations benefit from SentinelOne's capabilities, including more preventative measures, faster response times, and automated workflows throughout their dynamic, technology-bound perimeter. In addition, SentinelOne's AI-powered Singularity XDR platform replaces classical antivirus (AV), endpoint detection and response (EDR),  next-generation antivirus (NGAV), and a variety of point solutions.

“Every place where data resides is vulnerable from device to server to the cloud,” said Brandon Andrews, VP Worldwide MSP, SentinelOne. “Combining SentinelOne’s AI-powered XDR and Barracuda’s SKOUT Managed XDR helps MSPs close security gaps and simplify their cybersecurity stack, eliminating the inefficiencies associated with legacy and crowd-powered solutions.”

In today's modern world with high tech technology everyone prefer to store their personal data in the cloud which may has account numbers, passwords and other important information that could be used and misused by a miscreant, an opponent, or a court of law. These data are retrieved, copied and archived by Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), often without users' permission and control. Self-destructing data plays a vital role in protecting the user data's privacy. All the data stored at servers and their copies become destructed after a user-specified time and also this data became unreadable for any user intervention. The decryption key is destructed after the user-specified time that is TTL (Time-To-Live) field. In proposed paper, the authors present self-destructing data system that meets this challenge through a novel integration of secure cryptography techniques with active storage techniques based on 'Hadoop'.

Delinea Onsite Survey Reveals Top Cybersecurity Concern in 2022

Delinea | June 10, 2022

Delinea, a leading supplier of privileged access management (PAM) solutions for seamless security, today released the findings of its own anonymous onsite poll of cybersecurity experts attending this week's RSA Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The poll of over 100 cybersecurity experts questioned participants about their top cybersecurity worries for 2022, as well as where they stood on cyber insurance and cyber hygiene procedures. Notably, the poll discovered that cloud security (37%) would be the top cybersecurity issue in 2022, surpassing ransomware (19%) and remote employees (17%). According to the poll, 80% of respondents believe their company has not been infiltrated in the last 12 months. This positive effect might be attributed to greater cyber hygiene among workers. According to the poll, 59% of respondents do not use the same password on several accounts, and almost two-thirds (66%) utilize multi-factor authentication (MFA) wherever it is available. "Protecting digital assets in the cloud is becoming priority number one, reflecting a more proactive approach to cybersecurity. As businesses become more reliant on the cloud for infrastructure, application development, and business process automation, security skills and solutions need to keep up. Securing privileged access to cloud infrastructure and workloads before attackers take advantage is imperative." Joseph Carson, chief security scientist and advisory CISO at Delinea Joseph Carson further added "Passwords should never be the only security control for accessing critical systems, applications, and privileges. By implementing MFA controls, it adds an extra layer of protection, should an attacker be able to compromise a password. MFA should be required not only at system log-in, but also at the point of horizontal and vertical privilege elevation."
