Why We Must Democratize Cybersecurity

Why We Must Democratize Cybersecurity

Feb 16, 2024 SecOps / Threat Intelligence
With breaches making the headlines on an almost weekly basis, the cybersecurity challenges we face are becoming visible not only to large enterprises, who have built security capabilities over the years, but also to small to medium businesses and the broader public. While this is creating greater awareness among smaller businesses of the need to improve their security posture, SMBs are often left facing a gap in the market, unable to find security tooling that is both easy for them to use and which they can afford. When we consider the needs of SMBs, we need to focus both on the development of threat intelligence, which is necessary to understand and identify the threats being faced, as well  as the tools used to provide protection . NTTSH has built a pedigree of over 20 years' experience in the research and curation of threat intelligence as well as the development of capabilities and products which leverage its threat intelligence to protect customers. After many years of focus on

Wazuh in the Cloud Era: Navigating the Challenges of Cybersecurity

Feb 09, 2024 Cloud Security / Open Source XDR / SIEM
Cloud computing has innovated how organizations operate and manage IT operations, such as data storage, application deployment, networking, and overall resource management. The cloud offers scalability, adaptability, and accessibility, enabling businesses to achieve sustainable growth. However, adopting cloud technologies into your infrastructure presents various cybersecurity risks and challenges that demand diligent consideration. In this blog post, we will explore some challenges of cybersecurity in the cloud era. We will also delve into how Wazuh, a cybersecurity solution supporting cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Github, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), can help address these challenges effectively. The rise of cloud computing Cloud computing deploys services, including servers, storage, software, databases, networking, and intelligence over the Internet " the cloud " to offer flexible resources, faster innovation, and cost efficiencies.

How Nation-State Actors Target Your Business: New Research Exposes Major SaaS Vulnerabilities

Feb 15, 2024SaaS Security / Risk Management
With many of the highly publicized 2023 cyber attacks revolving around one or more SaaS applications, SaaS has become a cause for genuine concern in many boardroom discussions. More so than ever, considering that GenAI applications are, in fact, SaaS applications. Wing Security (Wing), a SaaS security company, conducted an analysis of 493 SaaS-using companies in Q4 of 2023.  Their study reveals  how companies use SaaS today, and the wide variety of threats that result from that usage. This unique analysis provides rare and important insights into the breadth and depth of SaaS-related risks, but also provides practical tips to mitigate them and ensure SaaS can be widely used without compromising security posture.  The TL;DR Version Of SaaS Security 2023 brought some now infamous examples of malicious players leveraging or directly targeting SaaS, including the North Korean group UNC4899, 0ktapus ransomware group, and Russian Midnight Blizzard APT, which targeted well-known organizat

4 Key Takeaways from "XDR is the Perfect Solution for SMEs" webinar

Sep 07, 2022
Cyberattacks on large organizations dominate news headlines. So, you may be surprised to learn that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are actually  more frequent  targets of cyberattacks. Many SMEs understand this risk firsthand.  In a recent  survey , 58% of CISOs of SMEs said that their risk of attack was higher compared to enterprises. Yet, they don't have the same resources as enterprises – making it nearly impossible to protect their organizations from widespread and increasingly more sophisticated attacks that don't discriminate based on company size. What's their solution? Extended detection and response (XDR).  During a recent webinar, Cynet's Director of Product Strategy, George Tubin ,  and guest speaker Senior Analyst at Forrester,Allie Mellen, discussed the most serious cybersecurity challenges for SMEs and how they can benefit from XDR platforms.  Here are the four key takeaways from the  conversation .  The Biggest Cybersecurity Challenges for SME

Comprehensive, Easy Cybersecurity for Lean IT Security Teams Starts with XDR

Jun 15, 2022
Breaches don't just happen to large enterprises. Threat actors are increasingly targeting small businesses. In fact,  43%  of data breaches involved small to medium-sized businesses. But there is a glaring discrepancy. Larger businesses typically have the budget to keep their lights on if they are breached. Most small businesses ( 83% ), however, don't have the financial resources to recover if they are a victim of an attack.  These small security teams were getting lost in the shuffle...until now.  The rise of XDR  As the threat landscape changes and bad actors continue to evolve their tactics, the industry is responding with new solutions and approaches to the way we do cybersecurity. The most recent evolution of cybersecurity technology is extended detection and response (XDR). There's no doubt you've heard of it. But do you have a firm grasp on what it really is and its unique value? If you shook your head "no" – you aren't alone. Industry exper

Use This Definitive RFP Template to Effectively Evaluate XDR solutions

Mar 23, 2022
A new class of security tools is emerging that promises to significantly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of threat detection and response. Emerging Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions aim to aggregate and correlate telemetry from multiple detection controls and then synthesize response actions. XDR has been referred to as the next step in the evolution of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions. Because XDR represents a new solution category, there is no single accepted definition of what capabilities and features should (and shouldn't) be included. Each provider approaches XDR with different strengths and perspectives on how what an XDR solution should include. Therefore, selecting an XDR provider is quite challenging as organizations must organize and prioritize a wide range of capabilities that can differ significantly between providers. Cynet is now addressing this need with the Definitive RFP Template for XDR solutions ( download here ),

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

Sep 03, 2020
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.
