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.

Trend Micro | April 26, 2022
Trend Micro Incorporated , a global cybersecurity leader, announced the launch of Trend Micro One, a unified cybersecurity platform with a growing list of ecosystem technology partners that enables customers to better understand, communicate, and lower their cyber risk.
Organizations are battling on all fronts to face mounting cyber risks from their complex and growing attack surface with stretched teams and siloed security products. The unified security platform approach delivers a continuous lifecycle of risk and threat assessment with attack surface discovery, cyber risk analysis, and threat mitigation and response.
Inaugural partners of the Trend Micro One technology ecosystem include: Bit Discovery, Google Cloud, Microsoft, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, ServiceNow, Slack, Qualys, Rapid7, Splunk, and Tenable.
"We are so proud that ecosystem partners value integrating into our platform. Collectively we help enterprises fight the bad guys known as cybercriminals. Alone we are strong, but together our industry is unstoppable in helping customers eliminate security gaps anywhere, identify internal and external enterprise assets, and take critical steps to mitigate them.
Kevin Simzer, COO of Trend Micro
According to Gartner®, "vendors are increasingly acquiring or developing these adjacent technologies and integrating them into a single platform. The benefits are best realized when this integration minimizes consoles and configuration planes and reuses components (e.g., endpoint agents) and information.1"
"We all know that digital transformation is table stakes for the post-pandemic enterprise. But this comes with additional risks: a bigger target for threat actors to aim at and more visibility and security coverage gaps for them to hide in," said Jeremiah Grossman, CEO of Bit Discovery. "Trend Micro's approach stands out from the crowd — notably with its blend of multiple sources of asset and risk visibility, including external attack surface visibility powered by Bit Discovery. Trend Micro's platform helps customers quickly get a prioritized and comprehensive understanding of their attack surface."
As a unified platform, Trend Micro One delivers powerful risk assessment capabilities, but the ecosystem partners extend that to make it the most complete in the industry. Joint customers benefit from truly connected visibility, better detection and response capabilities, and comprehensive protection across security layers and systems.
Trend Micro One supports this approach by enabling customers to:
Discover the attack surface: Identify, monitor, and profile cyber assets in customers' environments.
Understand and continuously assess risk: Analyze risk exposure, the status of vulnerabilities, the configuration of security controls, and types of threat activity.
Effectively mitigate risk: Ensure the right preventative controls and take swift action to mitigate risk and remediate attacks across the enterprise by leveraging Trend Micro's threat and risk intelligence.

Contrast Security | April 23, 2022
Contrast Security , the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, today announced the introduction of cloud-native automation for users leveraging Red Hat OpenShift, the industry's leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. Red Hat OpenShift users can now deploy containerized applications with embedded security features within a native continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines. This enables Red Hat OpenShift users to retain scalability, while adding automated security testing and protection as a routine part of the software delivery process. These added capabilities result in minimized manual configuration, reduction in additional overhead costs, and overall security efficiencies.
Contrast enables customers to continuously monitor OpenShift applications at runtime to deliver the most actionable results without requiring AppSec teams to waste hundreds of hours validating results and causing delays for developers.
"Unfortunately many organizations lack the means to implement scalable security gates within their CI/CD pipelines, which translates to insecure code being shipped across distributed cloud environments. Contrast helps these teams drive their DevSecOps transformation with automation at scale. These new capabilities are another component to Contrast's overall mission of ensuring developers are empowered to embed security capabilities within their environments without imposing additional work on them. We want to make security a value-add for everyone."
Sanjay Ramnath, Vice President of Product Management at Contrast Security
Contrast enables Red Hat OpenShift users to benefit from the following capabilities:
Source-to-Image Deployment: Cloud developers can embed Contrast's Assess and Protect agents into their source code image to implement continuous vulnerability detection with runtime context and help protect their apps from targeted attacks in production.
CI/CD Jenkins Pipelines: AppSec teams can trigger automated security tests within native Jenkins pipelines and establish security policy gates to mitigate potential vulnerabilities. Alternatively, users can also automate in their Jenkins CI/CD pipelines by pulling the agent from Contrast.
OpenShift Pipelines via Tekton: Contrast provides OpenShift users with automated tasks that can be used to create repeatable pipeline templates within OpenShift Pipelines environments. APIs provided by the Contrast Secure Code Platform help initiate automated vulnerability static scanning at build time and instrument applications for security telemetry from within prior to deployment.
The Contrast Secure Code Platform is available today with support for Java, .NET, and Node.js applications.

ContraForce | December 28, 2021
DataTribe, a global cyber foundry that invests in and co-builds next-generation cybersecurity and data science companies, announced today a $2M seed investment in ContraForce, a leader in no-code security automation for small and medium-sized businesses.
ContraForce delivers a no-code security automation platform that makes cyber security accessible for small and medium-sized businesses that lack the resources and expertise to defend themselves. In addition, ContraForce also brings this facility to security compliance; a critical feature, as customers, regulators and insurance companies are putting increasing pressure on small and mid-sized organizations to not only be secure, but also to prove it.
No longer is it acceptable for smaller organizations to be a step behind in their security and compliance. Hackers are increasingly targeting them for ransomware or as an entry point into a supply chain. Because small businesses typically have limited resources to cope with a cyber attack, cyber attacks can represent an existential risk for them. ContraForce enables small and mid-sized businesses to manage this risk with their easy-to-use, self-service platform to automate threat detection, response, and compliance.
“We are thrilled to announce DataTribe's most recent investment in ContraForce on the heels of the company winning the fourth annual DataTribe Challenge,” said John Funge, Managing Director at DataTribe. “By providing a sort of security and compliance ‘easy button’, ContraForce is filling a really significant gap. Just because an organization is small does not mean that it does not possess vital data, IP, or access to strategic networks. It is paramount that smaller organizations overcome the resource barriers to robust security. ContraForce’s unique approach dramatically lowers these barriers.”
“I am looking forward to working with DataTribe as we build on the ContraForce team's passion for simple and effective cybersecurity solutions designed for the needs of small and medium-sized businesses,”
Stan Golubchik, CEO and co-founder of ContraForce
ContraForce’s security and compliance solutions map security vulnerabilities to the industry standard MITRE ATT&CK framework. They create and adapt security detection and response capabilities in real-time, ensuring the environment is secured in hours across the cloud, network, endpoint, and users. By using ContraForce, an organization without dedicated security personnel can respond to threats without having to learn or write complex security detection code and response workflows.
DataTribe is a startup foundry that invests in and co-builds world-class startups focused on generational leaps in cybersecurity and data science. Founded by leading investors, startup veterans, and alumni of the U.S. intelligence community, DataTribe commits capital, in-kind services, access to an unparalleled network, and decades of professional expertise to give their companies an unfair advantage. DataTribe is headquartered in the Washington-Baltimore metro area, in Fulton, Maryland.
ContraForce is the new no-code security automation company.
