Cynet CISO Challenge for Cybersecurity Leaders Measure Expertise Against their Peers

Cynet | May 11, 2021

Cynet, supplier of the world's first self-ruling XDR stage, today declared the 2021 CISO Challenge for network safety group pioneers to approve their insight and comprehension of genuine security subjects going from essential to cutting edge - including more unstable situations defying associations today.

For the 2021 CISO Challenge, Cynet has gathered a gathering of senior CISOs, specialists, and analysts to build up this all-new trial of cutting-edge network safety abilities. The opposition on the site will stay open for about fourteen days, during which time anybody can join and endeavor to address the inquiries, which change from fundamental to progressively refined. There will be a sum of 25 inquiries, with everyone dependent on genuine situations, as opposed to straightforward random data. Questions will cover consistency and guideline, hazard evaluation and the executives' estimations and measurements, danger and weakness the board, just as situations and moral contemplations that most InfoSec pioneers face in the field.

The test begins on May fifth at 8 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and closes on May 21st at 11:59 pm (EDT). The site will stay open after the challenge for anybody to test their insight, however not for a prize. It is intended to be a great route for security pioneers to all the more likely comprehend their degree of information and find what holes, assuming any, they have in their order of network safety administration. Since this is a serious occasion, it will permit competitors to perceive how they perform comparative with other people who have acknowledged the demand. The $5,000 thousand prizes will be introduced toward the finish of the challenge.

"The CISO Challenge will be a fiery occasion in a cutthroat air, where InfoSec pioneers have the chance to gauge facing the best in the business," said Eyal Gruner, Cynet CEO and Co-Founder. "The challenge goes past the reading material and permits CISOs to do what they specialize in when the pressing factor is on."

Cynet is reacting to the business' requirement for more noteworthy cooperation and backing for CISOs at sub-Fortune 2000 associations. The CISO Challenge is intended for Infosecurity pioneers at associations where the dangers are critical, however, assets are restricted and require more elevated levels of mechanization to guarantee fruitful and productive activities.

About Cynet

Cynet empowers any association to put its network safety on autopilot, smoothing out and mechanizing their whole security tasks while giving upgraded levels of perceivability and assurance, paying little heed to the security group's size, ability or assets and without the requirement for a multi-item security stack. It does as such by locally merging the fundamental security advances expected to give associations exhaustive danger assurance into a solitary, simple to-utilize XDR stage; robotizing the manual cycle of examination and remediation across the climate; and giving a day in and day out proactive MDR administration - checking, examination, on-request investigation, episode reaction and danger chasing - at no extra expense.

GreyNoise Intelligence Partner Network Launches in the Cybersecurity Arena

GreyNoise Intelligence | November 07, 2022

GreyNoise Intelligence, the cybersecurity company analyzing internet scanning traffic to separate threats from background noise, today announced the official launch of a mulit-faceted partner program to help customers defend against mass exploitation attacks. As an ecosystem for cybersecurity solution providers, the program offers an array of opportunities for technical alliances, channel resale and OEM partners. "Mass exploitation attacks like Log4j have become the attack vector of choice for cyber criminals and state actors. "Security teams are struggling to defend themselves against these kinds of attacks with tools and threat intelligence designed for last year's threats. By building partnerships with other leading cyber solution providers, we can help customers implement new security strategies to end mass exploitation attacks." Andrew Morris, Founder and CEO of GreyNoise Mass exploitation attacks leverage internet-wide scanning technologies to find and exploit vulnerable computer systems around the world in minutes. When a new internet-exploitable vulnerability like Log4j is announced, these attacks can start in a matter of hours, before security teams have a chance to put their defenses in place. The GreyNoise Intelligence Partner Network enables other cybersecurity solution providers to expand their reach, increase revenues and deepen customer relationships. The network has three primary components: 1) GreyNoise Technical Alliance Program. GreyNoise provides contextual data on noisy IP addresses that scan the Internet. Technical Alliance partners collaborate with GreyNoise to ensure that mutual customers can seamlessly leverage inter scanner intelligence in their existing workflows, tools and processes. Customers use this data to reduce their alert volumes by 25% and minimize alert fatigue. GreyNoise also sharpens threat detection fidelity for mutual customers by providing valuable context on known malicious internet-wide scanners, speeding up the triage process. With GreyNoise data, technical partners have real time visibility into mass exploitation IPs targeting specific vulnerability, which provides critical actionable data during an active emergent attack. “Whenever a vulnerability is disclosed the dinner bell sounds for good and bad actors alike, meaning organizations are already on their back foot,” explains Robert Huber, chief security officer and head of research, Tenable. “We know threat actors are monitoring disclosure programs in the same way we are, looking for newly announced vulnerabilities, studying all available information such as proof of concepts, but they’re looking to utilize the flaw. OUr partnership with GreyNoise gives our customers the tools to address these weaknesses when they’re publicly announced. In doing so, we reduce that intelligence gap and hand the advantage back to the good guys.” 2) GreyNoise OEM Partnership Program. GreyNoise provides an integrated out-of-the-box threat intelligence solution for security vendors, ISPs and technology firms to embed in their product and service offerings. Unlike other threat intelligence vendors, GreyNoise is solely focused on providing high fidelity data on IPs that are actively mass scanning, crawling and attacking the internet. Integrating GreyNoise data directly into the platform of OEM partners enables customers to intelligently rule out internet background noise, and helps them to prioritize emerging threats and targeted activity more effectively. “Modern security teams need a fast, flexible and scalable platform for threat detection capable of analyzing terabytes of data per day, with built-in threat intelligence to rule out activity from trusted sources, and immediately flag activity from known bad actors,” said Jack Naglieri, CEO and founder, Panther Labs. “With Panther and GreyNoise, security teams can cut through background noise, improve alert fidelity, speed up analyst workflows and ensure prioritization of the most critical alerts. By making detection and response faster and more accurate, security teams can better protect their organizations from disruptive cyberattacks.” 3) GreyNoise Channel Resale Program. GreyNoise is committed to developing partnerships with highly focused, security-dedicated channel partners to deliver the best results to mutual customers. Value-added resellers and distributors offer GreyNoise protection and intelligence solutions to meet the IT security needs of their enterprise customers. In addition to providing a unique data and automation security solution that is relevant to Incident Response, SOC and Threat Intel teams, GreyNoise has a transparent, simple and profitable, channel sales program with a generous deal registration and rebate structure. GreyNoise sales teams provide materials for channel partners to explain the value GreyNoise offers in improving analyst efficiency, leveraging customer investment in existing technologies, and reducing the overall risk landscape. About GreyNoise Intelligence GreyNoise is THE source for understanding internet noise. We collect, analyze and label data on IPs that saturate security tools with noise. This unique perspective helps analysts waste less time on irrelevant or harmless activity, and spend more time focused on targeted and emerging threats. GreyNoise is trusted by Global 2000 enterprises, government organizations, top security vendors and tens of thousands of threat researchers.

Netpluz, a one-stop Managed Communications Service Provider in the region, has teamed up with two leading security platforms, Stellar Cyber and Ridge Security, to provide more comprehensive cybersecurity services for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) across the Asia Pacific. Netpluz eSentinel™ is a cloud-based, all-in-one managed cybersecurity platform that offers comprehensive protection of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer systems and networks against cyber-attacks and unauthorized access. The partnerships with Stellar Cyber and Ridge Security will significantly enhance the cyber defence capabilities of eSentinel™ in two main areas, namely Managed SOC (Security Operations Centre) and VAPT (Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing).
