If You Don't Have A SASE Cloud Service, You Don't Have SASE At All

If You Don't Have A SASE Cloud Service, You Don't Have SASE At All

Nov 05, 2020
The Secure Access Service Edge (or SASE)  has been a very hot buzzword in the past year. A term and category created by Gartner 2019, SASE states that the future of networking and security lies in the convergence of these categories into a single, cloud-based platform. The capabilities that SASE delivers aren't new and include  SD-WAN , threat prevention, remote access, and others that were available from multiple vendors over the years.  So, what is, in fact, new about SASE? This is the main topic for our discussion with Yishay Yovel, Chief Marketing Office at  Cato Networks , one of the first companies that entered the SASE market. THN: Cato had been a big proponent of SASE. Why is SASE important to end customers? Yishay:  SASE is a wake-up call for our industry and IT organizations. IT infrastructure got fragmented with many point solutions that, in turn, created complexity, rigidity, high cost, and increased risk. These are systemic issues. Each point product by itself does
Effective Business Continuity Plans Require CISOs to Rethink WAN Connectivity

Effective Business Continuity Plans Require CISOs to Rethink WAN Connectivity

May 14, 2020
As more businesses leverage remote, mobile, and temporary workforces, the elements of business continuity planning are evolving and requiring that IT professionals look deep into the nuts and bolts of connectivity. CISOs and their team members are facing new challenges each and every day, many of which have been driven by digital transformation, as well as the adoption of other productivity-enhancing technologies. A case in point is the rapidly evolving need to support remote and mobile users as businesses change how they interact with staffers. For example, the recent COVID-19 crisis has forced the majority of businesses worldwide to support employees that work from home or other remote locations. Many businesses are encountering numerous problems with connection reliability, as well as the challenges presented by rapidly scaling connectivity to meet a growing number of remote workers. Add to that security and privacy issues, and it becomes evident that CISOs may very wel

Cato SDP: Cloud-Scale and Global Remote Access Solution Review

Apr 30, 2020
The Scouts acknowledged the necessity to "Be Prepared" over 100 years (!) ago; the industry should have, as well. Yet COVID-19 took businesses – more like the entire world – by surprise. Very few were prepared for the explosion of remote access, and the challenge of instantly shifting an entire organization to work from anywhere. Cato Networks shared its increase in remote access usage post coronavirus outbreak. The trend is clear. Remote access has become an essential pillar for ensuring business continuity; nevertheless, the requirements to enable this, especially at a time of crisis, can be overwhelming. The industry is undergoing a paradigm shift. In the past, most works were performed from the office, and only a subset of the business operated remotely. Today, most (if not all) users require secure and optimized access to applications from remote. Legacy VPN isn't suited to support this shift. It was designed for sporadic access by a subset of the us

In the last decade, there has been a growing disconnect between front-line analysts and senior management in IT and Cybersecurity. Well-documented challenges facing modern analysts revolve around a high volume of alerts, false positives, poor visibility of technical environments, and analysts spending too much time on manual tasks. The Impact of Alert Fatigue and False Positives  Analysts are overwhelmed with alerts. The knock-on effect of this is that fatigued analysts are at risk of missing key details in incidents, and often conduct time-consuming triaging tasks manually only to end up copying and pasting a generic closing comment into a false positive alert.  It is likely that there will always be false positives. And many would argue that a false positive is better than a false negative. But for proactive actions to be made, we must move closer to the heart of an incident. That requires diving into how analysts conduct the triage and investigation process. SHQ Response Platfo
