SafeGuard Cyber today launched the next generation of its industry-leading integrated cloud communications security and compliance platform to investigate and remediate unmonitored communications in minutes. Powered by Contextual AI, the FirstSight platform alerts security teams to high frequency and costly attacks such as credential theft, impersonation, phishing, malware, policy violations, and insider threats across the expanding communication attack surface. FirstSight protects business communications and manages risk across email, collaboration, conferencing, messaging and social channels. The platform enables security and compliance teams to have visibility across all employee communications, while maintaining privacy, to keep organizations secure and compliant. FirstSight detects threats and policy violations, provides actionable evidential data to analysts, understands the threats potential magnitude of impact to an organization, and helps analysts make informed responses to communication threats wherever they exist.
Hackers are using AI to mount more automated, aggressive, and coordinated language-based attacks across multiple communication channels, making it challenging for today’s resource-constrained security teams to respond to every detected threat, said Chris Lehman, CEO, SafeGuard Cyber. The key to a better defense is to prioritize remediation efforts based on the potential damage each threat could cause. With the most advanced threat impact analysis capabilities in messaging security, SafeGuard Cyber FirstSight is a game-changer for security teams to respond to the most impactful threats across business communication channels.
FirstSight protects employees wherever they are communicating while maintaining their privacy through fine-grained access controls and workflow optimizations. Key capabilities of the platform include:
Unified Visibility: The only platform on the market to provide unified visibility across the entire communications attack surface, eliminating visibility gaps and saving security and compliance teams time and money by replacing siloed solutions. With deep visibility into communication channels – from Microsoft 365 email to Slack, Teams, Zoom, Telegram, and WhatsApp – security teams can detect and investigate risks in a centralized view.
Contextual AI: Built on an ontological architecture that utilizes LLMs, behavioral analysis, social knowledge graphs, and generative AI, FirstSight incorporates domain-specific knowledge about the customer's enterprise. This, combined with understanding the relationships between threats, vulnerabilities, and available countermeasures, enables customers to react more quickly and effectively to threats.
Threat Impact Analysis: Provides threat risk score, categories of potential impact – such as financial, business disruption, brand damage, data loss, and data theft – and suggested actions for remediation. With the platform’s threat impact capabilities, resource-constrained organizations can effectively prioritize remediation of the most significant risks to a business and make informed responses to multi-channel threats.

Netskope | September 11, 2023
Netskope, an industry-leading secure access service edge (SASE) provider, has announced that it has been chosen as the preferred cloud access security broker vendor for the Canadian Federal Government under the cybersecurity procurement vehicle (CSPV) of Shared Services Canada (SSC). The objective of the SSC cloud access security broker CSPV is to provide government users with secure access to cloud-based applications, including all software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, regardless of their location.
The Government of Canada (GC) selected Netskope after a competitive bidding process for a commercially available cloud access security broker service to fulfill its business requirements across various government organizations and agencies.
The cloud access security broker service aims to facilitate the continued adoption, utilization, and delivery of SaaS cloud services by GC departments. The cloud access security broker service will improve the security posture of GC applications, services, and data as they are migrated to public cloud environments, permitting complete visibility and monitoring of GC cloud environments to detect, prevent, and respond rapidly to cyber threats; and ensuring the privacy, confidentiality, and protection of GC data in accordance with GC policies.
As an integral part of Netskope Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE), Netskope's market-leading cloud access security broker enables agencies to detect and manage the usage of cloud applications rapidly, irrespective of whether they are managed or unmanaged, and safeguard sensitive data from being stolen by malicious cybercriminals or risky insiders who have compromised the technology environment.
A cloud access security broker is a cloud-based or on-premises security policy enforcement point situated between cloud service providers and consumers to combine and insert enterprise security policies when cloud-based resources are accessed. With a cloud access security broker solution, agencies can manage the unintentional or unauthorized transfer of sensitive data between cloud application instances while expediting security workflows with simple policy controls and incident response management.
Paul Tanasi, Federal Regional Manager, Netskope, said,
With the hybrid workforce becoming the new normal, Canadian government departments and agencies are relying more and more on giving their users direct-to-cloud access to SaaS applications and to web applications in general.

Paul Tanasi further mentioned that there is a requirement to ensure these users' security and regain some of the visibility and control they were accustomed to when everyone worked from the office. A solution is required to tackle risks associated with cloud services, enforce security policies, and adhere to regulations, mainly when dealing with cloud services that are located outside their network perimeter and beyond their direct control. Netskope's CASB solution would offer the capability to adopt cloud applications and services confidently without compromising security or performance.
Netskope, an industry leader in SASE, assists organizations in implementing zero trust principles and AI/ML innovations to safeguard data and defend against cyber threats. The company's platform offers optimized access and real-time security for devices, people, and data, regardless of their location. Netskope assists customers in mitigating risk, accelerating application performance, and gaining unparalleled visibility into cloud, web, and private application activity. Thousands of clients rely on Netskope and its robust NewEdge network to combat evolving threats, technology shifts, new risks, organizational and network changes, and others.
