Bugcrowd #1 Crowdsourced Security Company Announces Launch of Bugcrowd M&A Assessment

Bugcrowd | August 20, 2020

Bugcrowd, the #1 crowdsourced security company, today announced the launch of Bugcrowd M&A Assessment (Mergers and Acquisitions), a pre-packaged bundle of security tests that combine remotely-deployed penetration testing with the advanced asset discovery, alerting, attribution, prioritization, and management capabilities of the Bugcrowd platform. Organizations can initiate these tests in 72 hours or less—record time for the industry—and access results in real-time, expediting an evidence-based evaluation of a merger target’s cybersecurity posture.

“By 2022 60% of organizations engaging in M&A activity will consider cybersecurity posture as a critical factor in their due diligence process, up from less than 5% today,” states Gartner in their report, Cybersecurity is Critical to the M&A Due Diligence Process. Gartner also notes that, “the inability to manage the integration of cybersecurity practices poses its own risks.”

Red Sift Partners with SMX to Provide End-to-End Cloud Email Security to Organizations in Australia and New Zealand

Red Sift | May 09, 2022

Red Sift, provider of the only integrated cloud email security and brand protection platform, today announced a strategic partnership with SMX, the cybersecure email specialist, to help enterprises in Australia and New Zealand strengthen their email security posture and threat protection. Through this exclusive arrangement, Red Sift’s best-in-class Reporting Platform integrates with SMX’s new Domain Protection Service (DPS) to deliver a new joint DMARC implementation offering, helping customers improve email threat monitoring and agility in responding to threats. Red Sift and SMX will be showcasing their joint offering at AusCERT 2022 in Broadbeach, Australia, May 10-13 (booth #B19). SMX’s DPS service enables enterprises to maintain an effective DMARC implementation, using Red Sift’s best-in-class Reporting Platform to identify, quantify, and respond in real-time to dynamic threats. Red Sift’s real-time reporting provides vital data that allows SMX to deliver their expertise in refining the security profile and manage SMX DPS deployments effectively across an enterprise’s domains. SMX’s expertise, coupled with Red Sift’s reporting capabilities, provides the level of agility and monitoring required to keep up with today’s email threat landscape. “Every company in Australasia has a unique threat environment and clients increasingly want a region-specific, locally designed and supported approach to cyber security,” says Richard Fraser, CEO of SMX. “Our DMARC managed service, DPS, made possible through this strategic partnership with Red Sift, provides clients with the tailored protection profile required to respond in real-time to dynamic threats, and will enhance email cyber-security throughout Australia and New Zealand.” According to Gartner, 90% of the Global 2000 will have DMARC in place by 2026. As email threats continue to evolve and become increasingly complex, it is more important now than ever before that enterprises establish a streamlined and sustainable DMARC implementation process that can be easily updated to reflect today’s dynamic digital environment. With the Red Sift and SMX partnership, enterprises now have access to an end-to-end email threat monitoring service, powered by real-time reporting with actionable insights that enable them to maximize their agility in quantifying and responding to threats. As a result, customers have greater confidence in their DMARC implementation and overall email security posture. “SMX shares our mission to provide enterprises with the solutions necessary to proactively protect their business and brand reputation from email security threats, rather than ‘mopping up’ after an attack. Our partnership with SMX enables us to help more organizations in Australia and New Zealand strengthen their DMARC implementations, and we’re excited to continue to scale globally in partnership with SMX.” Cameron McLean, Regional Manager, Asia Pacific, Red Sift Experts from Red Sift and SMX will be on hand at booth #B19 at AusCERT 2022 to showcase their joint DMARC managed service for enterprises.

Rubrik Launches Rubrik Security Cloud to Secure Data, Wherever it Lives, Across Enterprise, Cloud, and SaaS

Rubrik | May 18, 2022

Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced Rubrik Security Cloud to secure customers’ data, wherever it lives, across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS. Ransomware is on the rise and cyberattacks are getting more sophisticated. Despite investments in infrastructure security tools, cybercriminals are still getting through to the data. And when they take the data down, they take down the entire business. It’s time for a new approach. The next frontier in cybersecurity pairs the investments in infrastructure security with data security giving companies security from the point of data. Rubrik is a pioneer in data security and the Rubrik Security Cloud delivers three unique capabilities: Data Resilience: Safeguards data by providing immutable, logically air-gapped data protection with multi-factor authentication-based access control. Data Observability: Continuously monitors risks and investigates threats to data including Ransomware Monitoring and Investigation powered by machine learning to detect data anomalies, encryptions, deletions, and modifications; Sensitive Data Monitoring to find and classify the most sensitive data, and assess exfiltration risk; and Threat Monitoring and Hunting to identify indicators of compromise and find the last known clean copy of data. Data Recovery: Quickly contains threats and recovers data, whether it’s a file, application data or a mass recovery for the entire organization. Rubrik’s new Threat Containment capability quarantines malware and restricts user access to infected data to support safer recovery. As organizations continue to struggle with cyberattacks that compromise data, Rubrik also launched the Data Security Command Center to easily assess whether data is safe and capable of being recovered from a cyberattack. Now, customers can see which data is at risk and get recommendations to make their data more secure. “Every company in the world is vulnerable as cybercriminals get more savvy every day. With Rubrik Security Cloud, we are strengthening customers' defenses so they can secure their business across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS workloads. Our data security platform enables our customers to defend their data, recover quickly, and prevail in this new cyber landscape.” Bipul Sinha, Rubrik CEO and co-founder “INTEGRIS Health is proud to be the largest not-for-profit health care system in Oklahoma, with eighteen hospitals in our network and more than a million patients that rely on us every year for their health care needs. With the expansive network we support, it’s paramount that our data is resilient, and we maintain a strong data security posture to keep our hospital moving. As a CIO, I believe Rubrik is an important service and helps us provide excellent patient care. As a Rubrik customer, we’re thrilled to see the continued innovation with Rubrik Security Cloud and the company’s ongoing focus on keeping customer data safe and making it easy to recover in the face of cyber-attacks, like ransomware,” said Bill Hudson, CIO of INTEGRIS Health. "NJ TRANSIT delivered more than a quarter of a billion annual passenger trips before the pandemic and is responsible for our riders’ safety, mobility, and livelihoods every day. It’s imperative that nothing interrupts our business, so we’ve prioritized a strong data security strategy in partnership with Rubrik. We’re committed to the ongoing and necessary work that gives our data resilience and helps us reduce our risk as we face ever evolving, and inevitable, cyber threats,” said Rafi Khan, CISO of NJ TRANSIT. Research and Development Fuels Additional Capabilities As part of Data Observability, Sensitive Data Discovery for Microsoft 365 discovers and classifies sensitive data within Microsoft 365 to better assess risk and help maintain compliance with regulations. These latest integrations build on the joint collaboration between Rubrik and Microsoft. Last year, Rubrik Cloud Vault built on Microsoft Azure was launched to help customers better defend against cyberattacks using a fully managed, secure and isolated cloud vault service. Since launch, Rubrik has seen strong demand for Rubrik Cloud Vault across key industries including Healthcare and Life Sciences, Manufacturing, State and Local Government, and Financial Services as customers build Zero Trust solutions to defend against and recover from ransomware. “Businesses need a data resiliency strategy to keep their data secure in the face of escalating cyber threats,” said Jurgen Willis, Vice President Microsoft Azure. “Rubrik's Security Cloud, which builds on integrations with Rubrik Cloud Vault and Microsoft Azure, will help customers accelerate their Zero Trust journey.” Rubrik Security Cloud is available now and new enhancements will be available in the months ahead. About Rubrik Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company delivers data resilience, data observability, and data recovery for organizations. Rubrik keeps your data safe and easy to recover in the face of cyber attacks and operational failures. Now you can recover the data you need, however and whenever you need it to keep your business running.
