"Managing and monitoring work-from-home (WFH) employees includes cybersecurity risk management. Controlling network access helps protect valuable business and customer data from cybercriminals," said DIGIGUARD's Harvey Yan. At a minimum, Yan urges SMBs do three things: Secure and update network perimeter defenses along with endpoints that access the network such as computers, laptops and mobile phones.

ThreatLocker Reveals Zero Trust's Future with Launch of New Products

ThreatLocker | February 07, 2023

ThreatLocker®, an endpoint security technology pioneer, recently announced the launch of ThreatLocker Ops, a community-driven threat detection tool, at Zero Trust World. This new product helps administrators detect attempted intrusions or system vulnerabilities. Ops is a policy-driven system that determines good or bad behavior based on ThreatLocker agent data. This information may be used to notify IT administrators of attempted attacks or to initiate measures to harden an environment utilizing other platform components. The Ops platform also integrates with ThreatLocker's new community, which allows similar firms to publish policies that are pertinent to their business, allowing for information exchange and a more comprehensive set of alerts. With tighter security controls, reduced agent fatigue, and minimal overhead on personal computers, Ops reduces dependency on other IT resources. ThreatLocker further announced the incorporation of the Third Wall plug-in into its zero trust platform. This announcement followed Third Wall's acquisition last November. The sophisticated configurations manager for Windows consists of 58 lockdown policies and emergency actions to widen the scope of ransomware prevention and assure user compliance with HIPAA, PCI, NIST, and GDPR. The latest additions to ThreatLocker comply with several government regulations on the use of Zero Trust strategies to counter current threats. ThreatLocker will offer its new products to existing and new partners. Currently, it secures over a million endpoints worldwide.

LogRhythm | December 20, 2022

LogRhythm, the company empowering security teams to defend against an ever-evolving threat landscape today announced its partnership with SentinelOne, an autonomous cybersecurity platform company. Together, LogRhythm and SentinelOne provide an integrated enterprise security solution to prevent, detect, and respond to threats in your environment. The combined solution streamlines security operations and improves response workflow, helping overwhelmed security teams cut through the noise and gain precise insights into cybersecurity threats. Legacy solutions have been unable to keep up with the speed, sophistication, and scope of attacks, in which organizations lack the context and global visibility necessary to address these challenges, leaving them vulnerable to attacks. To remain on top of threats, it's essential for enterprises to understand what's occurring in their network and across their endpoints. However, without a centralized way to collect and action log data, that mission can be overwhelming for security teams. “We are thrilled to formally announce our integration with SentinelOne. This partnership brings together two remarkable platforms that will provide our customers with incomparable visibility for analysts, allowing them to cut through the noise, and recognize and respond to incidents more quickly and effectively. “LogRhythm is committed to helping customers defend themselves against cyberattacks and we will continue to do so by partnering with leading and innovative cybersecurity companies to expand our offerings.” Andrew Hollister, Chief Information Security Officer at LogRhythm LogRhythm’s security analytics automatically incorporate rich endpoint telemetry from SentinelOne, enabling real-time threat protection and providing in-depth analytics for comprehensive security monitoring. LogRhythm SmartResponse™ capability leverages the SentinelOne API to effect automated response to malicious activities, such as automatically blacklisting hash values, or disconnecting affected machines from the network, as well as providing capabilities to collect additional information during an investigation. SmartResponse actions may be triggered directly by an Analytic running in LogRhythm’s patented Analytics Engine, or manually launched by an Analyst from the Web Console. Key benefits of this integration include: Expanded Visibility: Centralize data collection with events from SentinelOne managed user endpoints and cloud workloads Focused automation: Initiate automatic endpoint mitigation with LogRhythm SmartResponse actions Reduced Complexity: Prebuilt integrations and dashboards streamline SOC operations and improve ROI “Our XDR strategy incorporates the integrations and technologies SentinelOne customers value. We’re excited about our partnership with LogRhythm,” said Yonni Shelmerdine, VP XDR Product Management at SentinelOne. “LogRhythm offers extensive support for - and integration across - the Singularity XDR platform, helping our customers from around the globe protect against modern cyberattacks and reduce risk.” This announcement marks yet another milestone in the company’s momentous year. In addition to the release of LogRhythm Axon earlier this Fall, a groundbreaking, cloud-native security operations platform, LogRhythm also recently announced its integration with Gigamon that provides customers with a comprehensive view of network traffic. About LogRhythm LogRhythm helps busy and lean security operations teams save the day — day after day.

Sevco Security Introduces First Cybersecurity Asset Attack Surface Dashboards

Sevco Security | December 14, 2022

Sevco Security, the cloud-native security asset intelligence platform for enterprises that want an accurate IT inventory, today introduced the industry’s first cybersecurity asset attack surface analytics dashboards. The new dashboards extend the Sevco platform to give CISO and IT leaders deep insights into the security coverage and state of their IT assets, enabling security teams to identify and eliminate security gaps in the enterprise cyberattack surface. Enterprise environments increasingly include a wide range of hardware, software, mobile devices, cloud infrastructure, and other IT assets as the fundamental backbone for operating the business and engaging with customers. However, with management of assets often spread across departments and geographies, it has become increasingly difficult for executive leadership to understand the security state of all their assets and to maintain accuracy in a dynamic environment. Equally challenging is the inability to gain insights into abandoned or stale IT assets to effectively mitigate the security risks that they introduce. Complex enterprise environments are increasingly experiencing incomplete security coverage with upwards of 19% of assets that have missing or stale security controls like endpoint protection and patch management. The new Sevco Security dashboards fill a critical gap in cybersecurity attack surface management by providing context-based analysis of enterprise-wide assets that surfaces risks associated with IT hygiene, compliance, and policy enforcement. “As organizations innovate and expand their asset footprint, they must have seamless visibility into the security state of their assets because they cannot manage what they cannot measure. “Sevco Security delivers the critical data for CISOs to thoroughly understand their cybersecurity asset attack surface and confidently report their defensive security posture to the board.” J.J. Guy, co-founder and CEO of Sevco Security With the new expansion to its platform, Sevco Security provides customers with data rich and customizable dashboard reports, including: Security coverage: Provides critical insights on asset security controls, allowing customers to identify gaps in coverage and proactively protect the previously unknown attack surface. This also empowers companies to manage internal governance and regulatory compliance requirements to monitor and validate that their security investments are fully deployed. Asset snapshots: Captures the detailed attributes of the assets across the infrastructure, such as IP address, user, and operating system so customers can quickly see the state of any device at any point of time. With asset snapshots, incident response and IT team members can quickly identify when an asset change occurred and manage decisions on restoring an asset to a previous state. Timeline trending: Enterprise assets are tracked on a daily trendline empowering IT and security leaders to gain context of what’s typical for their environment and to readily view spikes and outlier activity. Out-of-the-box trending data is automatically captured for total devices, new devices, inactive devices in the last 15 days, total users, and new users. Custom, interactive dashboards: In addition to the pre-built dashboards, users can create and save unlimited queries on their asset telemetry to produce customized insights dashboards. This puts asset data analysis at users’ fingertips, providing an easy way to obtain tailored insights in a top-level dashboard. All dashboards are interactive, allowing users to ‘click’ and drill deeper into the data for pinpoint clarity on a particular area of interest. Complex asset environments are a normal operating fabric for businesses. Sevco Security is dedicated to helping organizations capture a comprehensive view of their asset ecosystem and readily identify and address any security risks they pose. The new cybersecurity asset attack surface dashboards are now available to customers. About Sevco Sevco Security is the cloud-native security asset management platform for enterprises that require an accurate IT inventory. Its patented telemetry technology creates a unified inventory that is updated continuously to deliver real-time asset intelligence and help security and IT teams identify and close their previously unknown security gaps. Founded in 2020 and based in Austin, Texas, Sevco is backed by SYN Ventures, .406 Ventures, Accomplice and Bill Wood Ventures.
