Trend Micro Unites Industry With Most Powerful and Complete Security Platform

Trend Micro | April 26, 2022

Trend Micro
Trend Micro Incorporated , a global cybersecurity leader, announced the launch of Trend Micro One, a unified cybersecurity platform with a growing list of ecosystem technology partners that enables customers to better understand, communicate, and lower their cyber risk.

Organizations are battling on all fronts to face mounting cyber risks from their complex and growing attack surface with stretched teams and siloed security products. The unified security platform approach delivers a continuous lifecycle of risk and threat assessment with attack surface discovery, cyber risk analysis, and threat mitigation and response. 

Inaugural partners of the Trend Micro One technology ecosystem include: Bit Discovery, Google Cloud, Microsoft, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, ServiceNow, Slack, Qualys, Rapid7, Splunk, and Tenable.

"We are so proud that ecosystem partners value integrating into our platform. Collectively we help enterprises fight the bad guys known as cybercriminals. Alone we are strong, but together our industry is unstoppable in helping customers eliminate security gaps anywhere, identify internal and external enterprise assets, and take critical steps to mitigate them.
Kevin Simzer, COO of Trend Micro

According to Gartner®, "vendors are increasingly acquiring or developing these adjacent technologies and integrating them into a single platform. The benefits are best realized when this integration minimizes consoles and configuration planes and reuses components (e.g., endpoint agents) and information.1"

"We all know that digital transformation is table stakes for the post-pandemic enterprise. But this comes with additional risks: a bigger target for threat actors to aim at and more visibility and security coverage gaps for them to hide in," said Jeremiah Grossman, CEO of Bit Discovery. "Trend Micro's approach stands out from the crowd — notably with its blend of multiple sources of asset and risk visibility, including external attack surface visibility powered by Bit Discovery. Trend Micro's platform helps customers quickly get a prioritized and comprehensive understanding of their attack surface."

As a unified platform, Trend Micro One delivers powerful risk assessment capabilities, but the ecosystem partners extend that to make it the most complete in the industry. Joint customers benefit from truly connected visibility, better detection and response capabilities, and comprehensive protection across security layers and systems.

Trend Micro One supports this approach by enabling customers to:
  • Discover the attack surface: Identify, monitor, and profile cyber assets in customers' environments.
  • Understand and continuously assess risk: Analyze risk exposure, the status of vulnerabilities, the configuration of security controls, and types of threat activity.
  • Effectively mitigate risk: Ensure the right preventative controls and take swift action to mitigate risk and remediate attacks across the enterprise by leveraging Trend Micro's threat and risk intelligence.

About Trend Micro
Trend Micro, a global cybersecurity leader, helps make the world safe for exchanging digital information. Fueled by decades of security expertise, global threat research, and continuous innovation, Trend Micro's cybersecurity platform protects hundreds of thousands of organizations and millions of individuals across clouds, networks, devices, and endpoints. As a leader in cloud and enterprise cybersecurity, the platform delivers a powerful range of advanced threat defense techniques optimized for environments like AWS, Microsoft, and Google, and central visibility for better, faster detection and response.

CloudCover Continues to Move Into a New Era of CyberSafety with the Launch of CloudCover’s Cyber Liability

CloudCover | December 27, 2021

The cybersecurity insurance market is in trouble, fueled by a rapid increase in cyber attacks – up 486% from the beginning of 2018 through the end of 2021, according to Aon. As a result, insurers have little choice but to raise rates and scrutinize policy terms and conditions, as there’s no historical data to set policies and premiums like traditional insurance products. CloudCover, the company Reimagining CyberSecurity, is making strides to improve cyber safety by creating the first end-to-end cyber security technology and insurance platform. Today, the company announces the continued rollout of its suite of CloudCover insurance products with the launch of a new insurance offering: CloudCover Cyber Liability (CCCL) and Information Systems Business Interruption (ISBI) insurance. The release of the cybersecurity insurance coverage brings forward an entirely new market category: cybersecurity network and data insurance cover that utilizes the CC/B1 PlatformTM to obtain the data analytic set required to efficiently underwrite and set accurate premiums. CloudCover’s $1 Million Ransomware Warranty was launched in September 2021. Through its CCCL insurance, CloudCover will issue a $1 million cover per occurrence and a $10 million aggregate policy. This insurance option covers: First-party response costs, including any costs associated with the investigation and remediation of cybersecurity breaches, as well as payment for costs associated with notifying affected parties of the breach, Third-party liability and regulatory costs, including any costs associated with the defense of lawsuits, regulatory fines, and penalties in addition to the costs associated with any judgements rendered from those activities, and Cover for any ransom demanded by cyber criminals who have locked the insured company’s network or computer systems. Similar to the CCCL coverage, CloudCover will also issue $1 million coverage per occurrence and a $10 million aggregate policy for its ISBI coverage. The insurance policy provides payment for lost revenue in the event that a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack disrupts or compromises the insured party’s network. Both insurance covers are powered by CloudCover’s CC/B1 Platform, an advanced Intelligent Threat ManagementTM security solution. The CC/B1 relies on a patented AI/ML (automated intelligence/machine learning), X-NDR (extended network detection and response), SOAR (security, orchestration, automation and response) technology that empowers risk awareness, risk control, and risk transfer in near real time. The platform operates as a Firewall EverywhereTM, collecting data from all corners of an organization’s network, streamlining and utilizing machine learning to detect, analyze, and stop suspicious activity – all while using the collected network patterns with risk scoring and building actuarial models for incremental cybersecurity network insurance. “This marriage of cybersecurity technology and cyber insurance represents the creation of a new market,No other security vendor is able to provide cybersecurity risk scoring, risk event mitigation and mediation, accurate identification and threat stopping, and cyber risk insurance underwriting and auto-adjudication for claims in one platform. Using cybersecurity technology to learn about a company’s network and utilizing that data to create more accurate premiums and better coverage gives our industry the opportunity to better control cybersecurity insurance losses in the future, as we’ll be able to detect threats and issue micro-policies in a fraction of a second.” Stephen Cardot, founder and CEO of CloudCover In the months ahead, CloudCover plans to debut the final product in its initial CyberSafety Insurance Coverage portfolio: Cybersecurity Network Data Insurance, which will be the first insurance policy to insure data in motion with both first- and third-party liability coverage. This insurance, which will launch in February 2022, makes it possible for organizations to insure and thereby value their intangible assets, i.e., data, just as they would other company assets – something that’s been long seen as impossible in the FASB/GAAP industry. In order to purchase CloudCover’s insurance offerings, a company will need to have the CC/B1 Platform installed on its network in addition to completing CloudCover’s CyberSafety Registry. About CloudCover CloudCover is an AI-driven, virtual machine-learning cybersecurity platform. CloudCover has reimagined cybersecurity as a risk-predictive CyberSafety Platform – delivering real-time extended network detection and response through a patented, math-based security orchestration automated response risk aware/control solution. The CloudCover SOAR capability accumulates data between an organization’s diverse security technologies and environments and streamlines them into holistic actions on potential risks. The CC/B1 Platform provides an ever-evolving, protective security layer to your existing cybersecurity tech stack – meaning network threats are detected in near zero-second speed with near zero-threat accuracy. With CloudCover, the elusive “single pane of orchestration” capability of an organization’s network security isn’t a myth – it’s reality.

IT-Harvest Launches the Analyst Dashboard for Cybersecurity

IT-Harvest | March 31, 2022

IT-Harvest, a data-driven industry analyst firm, announces the launch of an SaaS application for tracking and analyzing the entire cybersecurity industry. Some data will be published for free at dashboard.it-harvest.com. Subscribers will receive access to all the data assembled over a decade by IT-Harvest, including category, subcategory, headcount each quarter, investments, and key executives. Using the data on each of the 2,850 vendors worldwide, it is possible to compare countries, states, and regions. For instance, there are 1,567 cybersecurity vendors in the United States, 357 in the EU, and 236 headquartered in Israel. California is currently home to 560 cybersecurity companies. "The launch of this app is the realization of a 17-year journey to create an analyst firm that could offer more than opinions and reports. Subscribers get access to all the data we use in our research and reports. They can do their own analysis to test an investment thesis, find targets for acquisition, or create a short-list of vendors for a particular technology they are looking to acquire." Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest In addition to the data, subscribers are purchasing a seat for advisory services, much like with a traditional analyst firm. IT-Harvest analysts are available for inquiries on markets, technology, and vendors as part of the annual subscription. The data available in the Analyst Dashboard is printed every year in the Directory in Security Yearbook available at www.it-harvest.com/shop. IT-Harvest tracks headcount at all cybersecurity vendors to identify fast growing companies and segments. That data is updated quarterly in the Analyst Dashboard and presented in a Leaderboard sorted by growth over the past quarter and calendar year. Subscribers can add any number of vendors to a watchlist and get email alerts when data on a company is updated. This could include new funding, a change in the executive team, inclusion in a research report, or an acquisition.
