The endpoint security marketplace is crowded with vendors claiming to have superior capabilities. Cutting through all the marketing and sales pitches to understand how these products perform isn’t easy. Luckily, The MITRE Corporation conducted an independent test of the detection and investigation capabilities of leading endpoint detection and response (EDR) products against real-world attack sequences. We’ll break down MITRE’s methodology, the results, and what it all means for your organization as you assess your current and future endpoint security toolkit.
The journey to the cloud is not a linear one, and organizations choose to migrate to the cloud in a multitude of ways and approaches. The resulting complexity is the enemy of security. In fact, according to ESG, “36% of organizations use between 24 to 49 different security products while 19% use more than 50 different products from an assortment of vendors.” All this noise only makes way for more security concerns such as integration issues, misconfigurations, and access control. To overcome this complexity and succeed in the cloud, organizations must demand security solutions that can quickly and effectively scale with changing business needs. Prisma by Palo Alto Networks is the industry’s most complete cloud security offering for today and tomorrow, providing unprecedented visibility into data, assets, and risks across the cloud and delivered with radical simplicity.
The use of SaaS (software as a service) applications is creating new risks and gaps in security visibility for malware propagation, data leakage and regulatory non-compliance. Aperture delivers complete visibility and granular enforcement across all user, folder and file activity within sanctioned SaaS applications, providing detailed analysis and analytics on usage without requiring any additional hardware, software or network changes.
More information and context lead to better security decision-making. Prisma™ Public Cloud (formerly RedLock) for AWS® dynamically discovers cloud resource changes and continuously correlates raw, siloed data sources, including user activity, resource configurations, network traffic, threat intelligence and vulnerability feeds, to provide a complete view of public cloud risk. Through a new machine learning-driven approach, Prisma enables organizations to fulfill their obligations in the Shared Responsibility Model.
Prisma Public Cloud for Microsoft Azure dynamically discovers cloud resource changes and continuously correlates raw, siloed data sources including user activity, resource configurations, network traffic, threat intelligence, and vulnerability feeds to provide a complete view of public cloud risk.
Prisma Public Cloud for Google Cloud dynamically discovers cloud resource changes and continuously correlates raw, siloed data sources including user activity, resource configurations, network traffic, threat intelligence, and vulnerability feeds to provide a complete view of public cloud risk.
The dynamic nature of public cloud environments requires security operations teams to adapt and embrace a new approach to securing the cloud. Threat assessment and mitigation are significantly impacted due to ephemeral cloud environments, decentralized management models, and distributed data across multi-cloud deployments. Threat prevention for the cloud needs to be built around the principles of attack surface reduction through segmentation and prevention controls, advanced threat detection measures built around user, network and host activity monitoring and behavioral baselines, and rapid response through automated remediation.
DevOps driven software development approaches are pervasive among organizations embracing cloud. Unlike traditional software development approaches, DevOps helps organizations shorten the time to build and ship cloud applications. Introducing security early into the software development lifecycle along with continuous monitoring in production environments improves the overall security posture of cloud applications reduces business risk.
