Cyber threats affect more than just the information technology (IT) infrastructure of a company or command. These threats cause disruptions to its entire network that can impact its principal business functions and mission. As such, cybersecurity should be assessed in terms of its direct contribution to the successful execution of an organization's primary mission. Organizations can no longer ignore cyber threats or delegate security to the information technology department. Cyber defense must be integrated into traditional security activities, such as physical and personnel security as part of an overarching effort to protect business operations from both external and internal threats. Cybersecurity activities must be prioritized and aligned to strategic business activities.

AI-Based Cloud Security Meets Live Professional Monitoring--Rhombus Releases 24/7 Alarm Monitoring with Video Verification and Emergency Dispatch

Rhombus | September 17, 2022

Rhombus, a leader in enterprise cloud physical security, has released Alarm Monitoring, a 24/7 service that deters threats in real time and enhances an organization's after-hours security by combining AI-based alerts with live professional monitoring. "Many IT and Safety Managers love that Rhombus automatically sends AI-based alerts but don't have the staff on call to respond after hours. "This is where Alarm Monitoring comes in. When an alert is triggered—for instance, if human movement is detected when a building should be empty—an audible deterrent can be issued to deescalate a threatening situation and a live dispatcher will verify the alert to determine the appropriate course of action. The combination of issuing a deterrent while conducting a live investigation not only reduces false alarms but also accelerates incident resolution and emergency response." Rickey Cox, Director of Product at Rhombus Once an alert is triggered, live agents will automatically verify the alert and will text/call an organization's contact list or immediately dispatch emergency services if a threat to a person or property is identified. Additionally, with the Rhombus A100 Audio Gateway, an audible deterrent can be issued, such as a police siren, loud alarm, or custom message. Monitoring agents can also use the A100 as a two-way communication device, informing perpetrators that the authorities are on their way and to vacate the property. The use of an audible deterrent helps neutralize damage or threats in real-time as emergency services are en route. Within minutes, Rhombus can trigger an alert, issue an audible deterrent, verify an alert, contact essential personnel regarding the situation, send emergency services, and provide contextual information to first responders, including alert footage, live streams, and location details. Alarm Monitoring utilizes fully redundant, Five Diamond, UL-Listed Central Monitoring Centers and the full suite of Rhombus products –including smart cameras, sensors, and industry-leading AI analytics—to provide best-in-class coverage to enterprise organizations. Rhombus Alarm Monitoring is now available starting at $1,799 per year, per location. About Rhombus Rhombus is a cloud physical security platform designed to bring greater intelligence, security, and productivity to enterprise organizations. Rhombus delivers NDAA-compliant smart cameras and connected sensors that can be managed from a single pane of glass to simplify infrastructure and security management at scale.

Noname Security Announces Ambitious EMEA Channel Strategy to Capitalise on Accelerating Demand for API Security

Noname Security | November 02, 2022

Noname Security, the leading API security company, today shared its EMEA channel strategy, which builds on significant momentum achieved in the past six months and is led by Ides Vanneuville, recently appointed EMEA Channels & Alliances Director. Vanneuville is an experienced leader in the cybersecurity market with a strong track record in cybersecurity and solutions engineering, having held a number of senior positions at organisations such as Palo Alto Networks, Nutanix, and Aviatrix. Demand for API security solutions is accelerating throughout EMEA as businesses continue to transition to public cloud and are increasingly adopting cloud-native development strategies. High-profile API breaches have underlined the critical nature of API security and the need for advanced solutions such as the Noname API Security Platform that accelerate digital transformation while addressing API security risks and vulnerabilities. This offers a new and growing market for established cybersecurity resellers and new entrants alike. "I am excited to join Noname Security at a time when the channel is transforming to meet growing demand for the powerful yet easy-to-use API security that our platform delivers," comments Vanneuville. "We are building productive partnerships with traditional cybersecurity companies seeking to expand their offering into the DevSecOps market, along with the innovative application-centric resellers that are carving out opportunities in this space." Noname Security operates a 100% indirect sales model, and its channel strategy focuses on building out presence across EMEA by securing key partnerships with a range of cybersecurity resellers, consultancies, systems integrators, and distributors. Since March 2022, Noname Security has signed new partnerships with Oblivion, part of Xebia (Netherlands, Denmark & Germany), NewGens Pte (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand), CyberGate Defense (UAE), Evanssion (Middle East & Africa), Aditinet (Italy), iSOC24 (Benelux) and HighPoint (UK & NL) . These partners join a diverse group of existing partners across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. These partners will be supported by Noname Security's global partner program, which provides the resources they need to address key customer pain points in their region and build sizable revenue opportunities in the API security market. The program is tailored to reflect the variations in maturity and background of the API security market in each geographic area. "API security is a rapidly evolving area that wraps around the ways APIs are being used in different territories," adds Vanneuville. "For example, the increase in open banking in emerging regions like Turkey is driving demand for API security in that region, and we have new Noname Security partners in place to meet that need. Similarly, the booming m-commerce market in Africa is a valuable target for our partners to focus on. Our program helps partners target these key vertical markets and build a reputation for excellence." API Security Workshops Provide Essential Partner and Market Education Noname Security is running a series of workshops to educate the market and channel partners about the importance of protecting APIs against attacks and how to go about it. These are currently available, both virtually and in-person in a variety of worldwide cities, and will help Noname's channel partners as well as their end-users to understand: The underlying security risks when deploying APIs Emerging threats facing applications and APIs Techniques used to exploit vulnerable APIs How Noname Security monitors API traffic for anomalies. "These educational workshops form an important part of Noname's go-to-market strategy," concludes Vanneuville. "An educated market is a receptive market, and with these workshops we aim to ensure that customers and partners fully understand the urgency of securing APIs in order to protect core revenue streams against disruptive attackers. This is a relatively new area, but one that is of critical importance for the success and stability of modern enterprises as the cloud transition continues and born-in-the-cloud businesses ramp up innovation and expansion." About Noname Security Noname Security is the only company taking a complete, proactive approach to API security. Noname works with 20% of the Fortune 500 and covers the entire API security scope across three pillars: posture management, runtime security and API security testing.
