CISOs developing a roadmap to secure their cloud environments should be prepared for significantly more orchestration work than for securing SaaS. With the extra work will come significant rewards. Bold CIOs and CISOs will take a leap of faith and partner with security innovators to orchestrate their own cloud security systems. GuardiCore and deception technology is listed as one of them.
SC Magazine recently featured GuardiCore in its Emerging Products review on Active Breach Detection. Said SC Magazine about GuardiCore: “This tool is the whole package: active breach detection, deception technology, advanced analytics, forensic analysis in real time, and real-time remediation.”
With firewalls no longer seen as enough of a defense against security breaches, companies are looking at new tools to foil hackers trying to enter a computer network.

For us at GuardiCore, this is not surprising. During the past months we have been working closely with our customers and witnessed how the GuardiCore solution is “changing the game” with automated, real-time threat detection and response inside datacenters and clouds. Read more
