GlobalLogic Announces Partnership with Cybereason to Develop Advanced, Intelligent Cyber Protection Solutions

GlobalLogic_min | December 01, 2021

GlobalLogic Inc., a Hitachi Group Company and leader in Digital Engineering, today announced that it has been selected by Cybereason, the leader in operation-centric attack protection, to help develop its next-generation cyber security platform and services. Deployed by large enterprises, governments, and major cloud providers worldwide, Cybereason’s future-ready attack protection spans across endpoints, the enterprise, the cloud, and everywhere the defenders battle cyber criminals. The collaboration will draw on GlobalLogic’s broad and deep expertise in security and data management software across devices through to the cloud, including the integration of advanced artificial intelligence (AI).

The program is one of the largest won by GlobalLogic in this field to date. It requires quickly scaling to hundreds of specialized engineers supporting Cybereason’s development roadmap over the next year. This program scope highlights the market’s need for stronger, better cybersecurity as cloud use, network expansions and other technology usage continued their upward trend and surged during the pandemic.

“Cyber threats have become considerably more frequent and sophisticated in recent years. We’ve become dangerously more vulnerable in areas traditional security solutions could not adequately protect—the network and the cloud,” said Rajaram Radhakrishnan, CRO, GlobalLogic. “Having operated in the cybersecurity space for more than a decade, GlobalLogic has become adept at successfully responding to complex requirements. Cybereason is a premier example of a crucial innovator building disruptive defense solutions, redefining what government-grade protection can be. We are honored to now be a part of their team.”

Cybereason delivers the most comprehensive protection available on the market today, analyzing more than 23 trillion security-related events per week—five times the volume of any other market solution. Using its patented Malicious Operations (MalOps™) engine, Cybereason reveals the full attack story across every device, user identity, application, and cloud deployment. One of Cybereason’s key solutions delivering this capability is the company’s Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution—a unified detection and response tool that thwarts malicious operations across the entire IT stack. XDR is one of the several advanced technologies that GlobalLogic’s team will help Cybereason develop and enhance through the partnership.

“Cybereason’ operation-centric security approach is helping defenders combat sophisticated and persistent threats to their organizations. While other companies have security analysts chasing alerts without offering valuable insight, Cybereason helps organizations around the world leverage our award-winning technology each day to outthink and outpace attackers,GlobalLogic’s track record along with its responsiveness and collaborative approach to R&D stood out as major factors in finalizing our partnership. Together, we will deliver next-gen cyber defense solutions that will help technology users better control their sensitive data and operations—no matter where they reside.”

Red Canary and Palo Alto Networks expand collaboration to provide detection and response across security landscape

Red Canary | July 08, 2022

Red Canary, the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) trailblazer, has expanded its collaboration with industry leader Palo Alto Networks to help deliver on a bold vision: unifying threat investigation across a wide range of Palo Alto Networks products. To help achieve this goal Red Canary is now a part of the Palo Alto Networks Cortex® MSSP partner program. Today, Red Canary MDR supports Palo Alto Networks firewalls by integrating with PAN-OS version 9 and higher. This integration allows security alerts and event data generated by firewall appliances to feed into the Red Canary MDR platform for further investigation and remediation. Red Canary is working with Palo Alto Networks as an MDR partner for the Cortex XDR product, which includes built-in endpoint protection. While many MDR offerings simply ingest alerts generated by endpoint security tools, Red Canary is working toward being able to ingest raw telemetry as well as alerts from the Cortex XDR endpoint agent. Red Canary anticipates this will allow it to reduce false positives by up to 99% and significantly increase the detection of confirmed threats compared to what endpoint security tools can identify on their own. "The detailed endpoint telemetry generated by Cortex XDR enables leading scores in actual hands-on tests, such as MITRE's recent ATT&CK® evaluation," said Rick Caccia, SVP of Marketing for Palo Alto Networks. "Red Canary's ability to manage and analyze large volumes of endpoint, network, and other types of telemetry will make them an ideal partner for solving customers' most pressing security challenges. Together, we can help protect organizations from ransomware, phishing, and other modern threats." To complete our vision of unifying threat investigation across the Palo Alto Networks product line, Red Canary is also developing integrations for Prisma® Cloud, Threat Prevention, and the WildFire Analysis Environment. Red Canary's MDR everywhere strategy allows events from Palo Alto Networks products to be combined with multi-vendor events in a unified timeline.
