GuardiCore is featured in SC Magazine Industry Innovators 2017 – Virtualization and Cloud-Based Security. Last year SC Magazine said GuardiCore “… was founded with the vision that security for the data center needs to not only be able to keep up with the rate of constant change, but also be able to close the gap between traditional security technology and a sophisticated threat actor’s ingenuity.” This year GuardiCore is taking this notion to the next level by moving to the next generation of cloud application technology: micro-segmentation. This technique provides better detection because it provides better visibility.
GuardiCore is featured as one of Globes High Tech Promising Startups. Hundreds of Israeli startups are currently active in the hot cybersecurity market. “There’s a rash of cyber companies,” says GuardiCore CEO Pavel Gurvich. “The only thing that has grown faster than investment in this sector is the damage caused by the attacks.”
CSO Online takes a look at the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform in this product review. Says CSO Online: “The GuardiCore Centra solution offers one of the most efficient ways to begin implementing powerful security using micro segmentation. The fact that it is so easy to use, reasonably priced, and can be dropped into any physical or virtual environment is just icing on the cake for this impressive security toolset.”
Deception is growing in popularity because it can help find attacks more accurately and faster than other, more traditional tools. However, finding the threat solves only part of the problem. A complete deception solution will also enable better incident response to combat the threat actors.
Hundreds of MySQL databases were hit in ransomware attacks, which were described as “an evolution of the MongoDB ransomware attacks” in January, there were tens of thousands of MongoDB installs erased and replaced with ransom demands. In the new attacks, targeted MySQL databases are erased and replaced with a ransom demand for 0.2 bitcoin, which is currently equal to about $234.
What’s the hottest commodity cyberthieves are going after these days? Credit card numbers? Medical records? Politicians’ emails? Those may be big, attractive targets. But more and more, attackers are going after unwitting organizations’ compute power. GuardiCore’s Director of Sales Engineering & Architecture, Dave Klein, discusses why in the article published by Dark Reading.
SC Magazine reviewed four products head-to-head in their recent Group Product Test for cloud-based security management. Only one product came out on top, with SC Magazine’s “Best Buy” and 5-star rating, and that was the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform. In the magazine’s words, “this is one of the best tools of its type that we’ve seen. It is comprehensive, reliable and easy to use. We make it our Best Buy.”
The hybrid data center is rapidly becoming a way of life for large enterprises. Security has to keep up. It is no longer enough to “guard the border,” especially in a hybrid infrastructure in which the border keeps shifting. Security specialists need to step up their threat detection and response capabilities within the data center. In a hybrid world, that means finding security solutions designed to mitigate threats across multiple types of environments – physical or virtual, on-premise or cloud – and deliver centrally managed, consistent protection to data center assets no matter where they reside.
Despite the scale and potential harm from such attacks, there’s wide recognition that corporate leaders, especially boards of directors, aren’t taking the necessary actions to defend their companies against such attacks. It’s not just a problem of finding the right cyber-defense tools and services, but also one of management awareness and security acumen at the highest level, namely corporate boards.
It’s that time of year again when we look back at who the Innovators were over the past 12 months. Here is a case where the industry and the creativity of the adversary are the predominating drivers. In our experience, that is a pretty good formula for success as long as you recognize and respond to it. GuardiCore does all of that.
