CrowdStrike has purchased external attack surface management startup Reposify to help organizations detect and eliminate risk from vulnerable and unknown assets. This deal will allow CrowdStrike to combine its insights on endpoints and IT environments with Reposify's internet-scanning capabilities.
Existing security operations tools focus too much on detecting threats and creating alerts rather than stopping attacks before they happen, says Check Point CEO Gil Shwed, who claims the firm's new MPR and XPR tools will reduce the number of events security analysts handle by at least 90%.
With economic conditions causing concerns, many security teams are sacrificing security initiatives for cost containment. All while expanding attack surfaces are requiring more time and attention than ever before.
If this problem sounds familiar, we’ve got your solution for the cost savings, ROI, and SOC...
A top-notch security stack encompasses many different components – it’s part of the defense strategy against the ever-evolving threat landscape. But using legacy systems could be costing you extra, during a time when many budgets are being tightened more than ever.
We put together a few of the most important...
According to Gartner, by 2025, 50% of organizations will be using MDR services (this is up from less than 5% in 2019)..
Very few organizations have the right resources to effectively manage their security program around-the-clock while proactively defending against new and emerging threats.
SIEM can play a key role in aggregating log data for compliance or auditing purposes, but when it comes to identifying threat activity in an IT environment, nothing beats XDR, which excels at using advanced techniques to pinpoint threats in high volumes of data, says Secureworks' Ryan Alban.
While Managed EDR can help in many endpoint scenarios, it’s important to be aware that going beyond the endpoint allows MDR and extended detection and response (XDR) to offer broader cybersecurity coverage.
As ransomware actors continue to ply their trade, prospective victims need to get better at all three phases of an attack: Before, during and after. Andrew Stone of Pure Storage shares insights on how to improve defensed by focusing on hygiene, authentication, awareness and logging.
Welcome to ISMG's compendium of RSA Conference 2022. The 31st annual conference covered a wide range of topics including cybercrime, cyberwarfare, zero trust, supply chain risk, ransomware, OT security, cyber insurance and jobs. Access 150+ interviews with the top speakers and influencers.
When contracting for modern managed detection and response services, Lyndon Brown of Pondurance advises prospective customers to ask about more than the managed service and detection. He says they should ask tough questions about response. Brown shares his insights and strategies.
In an interview with Information...
EDR, MEDR, MDR, XDR - How does one begin to make sense of this alphabet soup that attempts to spell "detection and response?" Nirav Shah of Cisco discusses the merits of each of these options, as well as how one can start to make the decision on which is right for one's own organization.
Whether you’re looking at the barrage of increasingly
sophisticated ransomware variants or deeply embedded
corruptions in the software and vendor supply chains,
it’s impossible to ignore the fact that if security is a
game, the game has been changed beyond recognition.
It’s high time to modernize your...
It's critical to enable companies to not only see what is going on in their IT environments but to also quickly react, and "sheer manpower" is no longer sufficient to respond to the surge of cyberthreats evolving today, says Mike DeCesare, CEO of Exabeam.
When contracting for modern MDR services, Lyndon Brown of Pondurance advises prospective customers to ask about more than the managed service and detection. He says they should ask tough questions about response. Brown shares his insights and strategies.
The average SOC and its personnel are 'lost in the noise' caused by an overflow of alerts. The adversaries know this and take full advantage. Randy Watkins, CTO of Critical Start, advises on the role MDR can play in resolving all alerts and detecting/stopping attacks.
