For Security Teams, Closing Cloud Security Woes Means Adopting New Approaches
February 23, 2021
Over the past few years, security teams have been faced with the demands brought about by the widespread adoption of cloud environments for infrastructure.

Why IDS is Ineffective for Linux Production Environments
January 25, 2021
Organizations are evolving and modernizing their production environments with technologies like cloud, microservices and containers, and are more often mixed with both cloud and on-premises infrastructure and applications. This creates a changing attack surface that conventional security solutions such as IDS simply cannot address.
Retooling Cybersecurity Programs for the Cloud-first Era
September 26, 2019
Because lines of business are going directly to the cloud, cybersecurity and IT teams are losing control over both the administration and security of cloud-delivered applications. This decoupling, in which the consumer of the cloud service is administering its use, means that security teams are losing centralized visibility and control over the data assets associated […]

Detecting Meltdown and Spectre
February 22, 2018
The Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities are wreaking havoc on the tech industry and loudly sounding an alarm that even complex, modern processors are still susceptible to big time vulnerabilities. One of the most important outcomes of this frenzy is the broadening of the conversation beyond mitigation and forcing companies critically about detection as part of their […]

Making Security Operations Scale
December 6, 2017
As cyber threats continue to escalate, organizations and governments alike are facing the most critical workforce shortage of our time. The current number of experienced cybersecurity professionals is not nearly enough to satisfy the insatiable hiring demands required to keep our societies safe. We are woefully short-handed in defending against increasingly sophisticated threats. To meet […]
