(Live) Webinar – XDR and Beyond with Autonomous Breach Protection

September 03, 2020The Hacker News
Anyone paying attention to the cybersecurity technology market has heard the term XDR - Extended Detection and Response. XDR is a new technology approach that combines multiple protection technologies into a single platform. All the analyst firms are writing about it, and many of the top cybersecurity companies are actively moving into this space. Why is XDR receiving all the buzz? Combining (or orchestrating) security technologies in a usable manner has become the bane of cybersecurity as technology spread has overwhelmed the space. There's a massive market for cybersecurity technologies that combine and rationalize other cybersecurity technologies (see SIEM and SOAR). However, most companies find selecting, implementing, integrating, normalizing, operating, and maintaining a fully combined set of cybersecurity technologies far too daunting and only within reach of the largest companies with the deepest pockets. XDR Insights Next week, Senior Analyst Dave Gruber of E
Is Your Security Vendor Forcing You To Move to the Cloud? You Don't Have To!

Is Your Security Vendor Forcing You To Move to the Cloud? You Don't Have To!

July 29, 2020The Hacker News
Many endpoint security vendors are beginning to offer their applications only in the cloud, sunsetting their on-premise offerings. This approach may be beneficial to the vendor, but many clients continue to need on-premise solutions. Vendors that sunset on-premise solutions force clients that prefer on-premise solutions to either change their operating environment and approach or change vendors. Fortunately, some vendors continue to provide their offerings in both cloud and on-premise versions. One such company is Cynet , which allows clients to deploy their EDR and XDR (Extended Detection and Response) solutions in on-premise, cloud, and hybrid cloud delivery models. Clients can access the solution in any way they see fit now and into the future. This provides an alternative for organizations that do not want to be forced to move into the cloud. Cloud vs. On-Premise The cloud vs. on-premise argument continues to rage. Recently, however, it seems that everyone is jumpin

In the past, the autonomous breach protection company Cynet announced that it is making Cynet 360 threat detection and response platform available at no charge for IR (incident response) service providers and consultants. Today Cynet takes another step and announces a $500 grant for Incident Responders for each IR engagement in which Cynet 360 was used, with an additional $1,000 grant if the customer if the customer purchases an annual Cynet 360 subscription after the IR process is concluded. Learn about this new offering here . Incident response investigations come in a thousand different variations, but most can be broken down into two main parts. The first is discovering the few suspicious machines, user accounts, and network connections out of the mass activities within the attacked environment. The second part follows these discoveries and involves a surgical-like collection and analysis of forensic artifacts to refute or validate the suspicion and if validated to disclo

The Incident Response Challenge 2020 — Win $5,000 Prize!

April 21, 2020The Hacker News
Cybersecurity firm Cynet today announced the launch of a first of its kind challenge to enable Incident Response professionals to test their skills with 25 forensic challenges that were built by top researchers and analysts. The challenge is available on https://incident-response-challenge.com/ and is open to anyone willing to test his or her investigation skills, between April 21st and May 15th. What's more interesting is that there's a USD 5000 prize for the first-place winner of the challenge. Forensic investigation is at the core of any IR processes and provides the critical path from the initial stage of suspicion or limited attack view to the concrete and actionable knowledge on the attack's root cause and the impact that is essential for recovery and restore operations. The challenge of the incident responder is to identify and collect the scattered traces the attackers have left them and connect the dots to understand the how, what, and where of the atta

How to Provide Remote Incident Response During the Coronavirus Times

March 24, 2020The Hacker News
While the Coronavirus pandemic continues to strike chaos across the global economies, threat actors keep on launching cyberattacks on organizations from all sizes and verticals. IR providers face a unique challenge when approached by these organizations since, due to the Coronavirus mass quarantine, conducting incident response engagements by arriving physically to the customers' offices is impossible. Cynet 360, a tool of choice for a number of IR providers (offered to IR providers for free), enables responders to compensate on the lack of physical access with the ability to conduct a full IR operation remotely ( learn more here ) by seamless and rapid remote deployment, complete visibility into the attacked organization's environment, automated threat detection, and integrated MDR services. Attackers always seek easy opportunities, and it's no wonder many threat actors take advantage of the current mayhem of the Coronavirus pandemic to increase their attacks'
