Cequence and Vercara Partner to Combat Cyber Threats and Revolutionize API Security

Cequence Security | January 25, 2024

Cequence Security is proud to announce a new partnership with Vercara, a leading provider of cloud-based services that secure the online experience. This collaboration aims to fortify the cybersecurity landscape by pairing Vercara’s network and application protections with Cequence Security's innovative Unified API Protection (UAP) platform. Security teams encounter substantial hurdles in safeguarding API applications from cyber-attacks, including the rapid development and deployment of API applications across diverse cloud providers. The unmanaged and unprotected nature of these APIs can harbor critical vulnerabilities, making them susceptible to exploitation. Moreover, the lack of a clear and consistent security posture across the application footprint introduces further complexities. To address these challenges, Cequence Security's UAP platform provides a comprehensive discovery of the entire API attack surface, encompassing both external and internal APIs. It ensures compliance with security and governance best practices, eliminating unknown and unmitigated API security risks. Furthermore, the solution offers native real-time inline protection, blocking API attacks before they reach applications. "The absence of API protection puts you at risk of potential theft, fraud, non-compliance, and business disruptions,” said Carlos Morales, SVP Solutions at Vercara. “Our partnership with Cequence combines our collective best-in-class services to address the evolving demands of the cybersecurity landscape, ensuring that businesses can confidently deploy needed applications and successfully navigate the complexities of API security with advanced, holistic protection.” Arun Gowda, VP, Business Development at Cequence Security, said, “In the evolving landscape of cybersecurity, the extensive risk of data compromise in API breaches goes beyond external APIs to internal ones. These often-overlooked internal APIs can access sensitive data not intended for public exposure. APIs have changed the game for attackers, making it imperative to prioritize the security of all assets accessible through APIs, including those not expected to be publicly exposed.” He added, “We are pleased to combine our innovative API security solutions with Vercara's innovative WAF and DDoS services to deliver advanced, holistic API protection. This collaboration reinforces our commitment to provide unparalleled security measures for businesses reliant on APIs.” Cequence Security's UAP platform is unparalleled in addressing all phases of the API security lifecycle. It provides: Discovery: A continuous API attack surface discovery management product that assesses your application footprint, offering a complete inventory of external APIs. Compliance: A security posture management product that identifies security risks in APIs, ensuring compliance with specifications, security test requirements, and governance best practices.

Rubrik Chosen by Carhartt to Drive Complete Cyber Resilience

Rubrik | January 10, 2024

Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ company, today announced that America’s premium workwear brand Carhartt has consolidated multiple legacy backup tools with Rubrik Security Cloud to achieve cyber resilience. After moving to Rubrik, Carhartt realized more than 50 percent in monthly cost savings, while significantly improving its data security capabilities. “Data resilience is key to the continued security and success of our business. We work hard to ward off intruders but we have to operate on the assumption that they will find a way in,” said Michael Karasienski, cloud platforms manager at Carhartt. “Rubrik Security Cloud restores data fast and without fail for both our cloud and on-premises environments. Rubrik plays a key role in building trust in our system with secure protocols and access controls; it isn’t just a data security solution, it’s peace of mind for our brand.” Established in 1889, Carhartt has a rich heritage of developing rugged products for workers on and off the job. The company honors hard work, approaching its business with the same honesty, dependability, and trust that its consumers display day-in and day-out. Prior to Rubrik, Carhartt used a variety of different backup solutions across its operations. After an upgrade of a critical application failed, Carhartt’s administrators discovered that that application data hadn’t been backed up, forcing the team to reconstruct more than two-weeks’ worth of data manually. Furthermore, the Carhartt team discovered malware in backups from its legacy tools, resulting in weeks of searching data sets to manually complete the investigation. With Rubrik Security Cloud, Carhartt’s IT team can now devote more time to other priorities — like business requests, incidents, and reducing technical debt — while saving more than 50 percent in operational costs each month. The company’s IT and Security teams are also collaborating to reduce risk to the organization, zeroing in on malware and tying investigations into its security operations center. “A highly interconnected business like Carhartt is responsible for mountains of sensitive data. Protecting that data is paramount to maintain customer trust and minimize business disruption,” said Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer at Rubrik. “Outdated legacy technology was never built with security in mind, so organizations must turn to modernized platforms and zero-trust methodologies to defend their data. With a holistic solution like Rubrik Security Cloud, organizations like Carhartt know their business will be resilient in the face of any cyber threat.” Carhartt utilizes numerous Rubrik products, including Anomaly Detection, Sensitive Data Monitoring, Threat Hunting, as well as its integration with Microsoft Sentinel. About Rubrik Rubrik is on a mission to secure the world’s data. With Zero Trust Data Security™, we help organizations achieve business resilience against cyberattacks, malicious insiders, and operational disruptions. Rubrik Security Cloud, powered by machine learning, secures data across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS applications. We help organizations uphold data integrity, deliver data availability that withstands adverse conditions, continuously monitor data risks and threats, and restore businesses with their data when infrastructure is attacked.

Boomi Strengthens Commitment to Data Security and Compliance by Achieving StateRAMP Authorization

Boomi | January 12, 2024

Boomi™, the intelligent connectivity and automation leader, today announced that the Boomi platform has achieved StateRAMP Authorization. This achievement reflects Boomi’s unwavering commitment to data security and compliance, and to delivering a secure and reliable solution that government agencies can rely on to safeguard their data and operations. “At Boomi, we are committed to democratizing modernization. Securing StateRAMP authorization for our platform was paramount, enabling public sector organizations to seamlessly and securely integrate and leverage cloud applications,” said Sean Wechter, Chief Information Officer at Boomi. “Through a strategic alliance with StateRAMP, Boomi actively collaborates with its leadership board, facilitating streamlined documentation and audit processes to expedite digital transformation within the public sector." According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, government agencies plan to spend billions of dollars each year to support their IT and cybersecurity efforts, including transitioning IT resources to secure, cost-effective commercial cloud services.1 However, agencies are challenged to select secure cloud-based solutions, making it difficult for these organizations to modernize and improve constituent experiences. StateRAMP, a nationally recognized risk authorization management program that provides a standardized approach to assessing cloud products, improves security and simplifies procurement by building a pool of pre-authorized Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for public sector entities. As organizations more frequently implement cloud-based solutions, they also require validated access to integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to streamline application and resource integration. iPaaS integrates cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-on premises, and on-premises-to-on-premises platforms, helping public sector organizations break down data silos to enhance information flow, improve citizen services, and increase operational effectiveness. About Boomi Boomi aims to make the world a better place by connecting everyone to everything, anywhere. The pioneer of cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS), and now a category-leading, global software as a service (SaaS) company, Boomi touts the largest customer base among integration platform vendors and a worldwide network of approximately 800 partners – including Accenture, Capgemini, SAP, and Snowflake. Global organizations turn to Boomi’s award-winning platform to discover, manage, and orchestrate data, while connecting applications, processes, and people for better, faster outcomes.
