Foresite Cybersecurity Begins XDR & Compliance Platform

Foresite Cybersecurity | June 02, 2022

Foresite Cybersecurity
Foresite Cybersecurity, a leading cybersecurity and compliance provider, announced today that it is transitioning from technical services to a product-led Open XDR SaaS platform. The platform will provide a distinct edge for mid-market enterprises by allowing them to consolidate security data from several sources into a single spot to acquire a holistic view of their security and policy compliance maturity.

"Our strategy is to provide our customers with an open, extensible platform to enable them to understand their risk and compliance posture. The ProVision Open XDR platform will deliver on the single vision of our customers security posture, allowing not only discovery, response, and remediation, but also providing real-time risk and maturity scores."

Matt Gyde, Chairman and CEO of Foresite Cybersecurity

Mid-market organizations have battled for years to achieve adequate cybersecurity due to a lack of in-house experience or funding, with many not understanding where to start. The growing trend of remote employment has only made things more complicated.

Duane Shugars, Foresite Cybersecurity Chief Technology Officer said that "The market demanded an easier, more simplified model to be protected from cyberattacks and compliant to support business supply chain requirements. We are developing our Open XDR platform to easily absorb all log data, use advanced data science techniques, proprietary machine learning and natural language models, and supply chain illumination to simplify cybersecurity, maturity and compliance."

ProVision Open XDR is a cloud-native platform that will be available in Q3 2022 and will employ machine learning to enable insight across the whole IT ecosystem. In the case of an attack, the vendor-agnostic platform allows any cybersecurity technology in the customer's ecosystem, including firewalls, EDR, NDR, and many more, to monitor events, resulting in quicker remediation and reduced economic damage.

Indusface, a leading application security SaaS company that continually detects security risks, provides real-time protection, and improves the performance of Websites and Applications, today announced that it is adding Risk-Based API Protection to its WAAP platform, AppTrana. APIs are the lifeline of the digital economy with many companies adopting the API-first approach. However, the growth of APIs is also opening up new risk vectors that they are not aware of. According to Gartner, more than 90% of applications have more attack surface exposed through API than UI and by 2022, API Abuse will move from an infrequent to the most-frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications. Indusface is revolutionizing the API security space by building on its API Protection capabilities. The company is doing so through the most comprehensive API protection to date by extending its risk-based approach to the same.

What customers are really interested in is knowing how well their application is protected based on the risk posture of their application. Building on this, we are now enhancing our API Protection capabilities by providing a risk-based approach to API security which we believe would revolutionize the market. With this, customers will be able to identify vulnerabilities found in their public APIs and quickly correlate how these are protected through API-specific policies and positive security policies applied in AppTrana providing the most comprehensive protection for APIs." Ashish Tandon, Founder and CEO, Indusface As with any security, you can protect only what you know and protection is as strong as the weakest link. The major challenges with APIs are discoverability and the ability to understand the context of APIs so that security can be tailored accordingly. It is to address these challenges that Indusface is enhancing its API protection in AppTrana. Collectively through a multi-step approach, customers get to discover APIs, understand risk posture and ensure comprehensive protection of APIs. With Indusface AppTrana's Risk-based API Protection, you get: To understand the risk posture of the APIs through unlimited automated API scans including manual tests for identifying business logic vulnerabilities. This enables organization to understand the weakest links of the APIs and get clear visibility around how these links are protected. Visibility into API traffic patterns and discovery of shadow APIs, so that you are no longer blindsided by what you don't know To protect APIs with API-specific rules written specifically to protect against OWASP Top 10 API vulnerabilities Behavioral-based protection against DDoS attacks on APIs by analyzing API traffic pattern Behavioral-based protection against BOT attacks Positive security for APIs through analysis of swagger (OpenAPI 2.0) files and creation of automated positive security policies Accurate, real-time view of vulnerabilities blocked by API specific rules, positive security policies, custom rules, and those that need fixes in the application About Indusface Indusface is a leading application security SaaS company that secures critical Web, Mobile, and API applications of 3000+ global customers using its award-winning fully managed platform that integrates web application scanner, web application firewall, DDoS & BOT Mitigation, CDN, and threat intelligence engine.
