Download this guide which highlights 10 tactical prescriptions when evaluating Managed Detection and Response (MDR) vendors for what a provider should be able to offer your business, and Rapid7's approach to each.
The most sought-after type of victim for ransomware-wielding attackers is a large, U.S.-based business with at least $100 million in revenue, not operating in the healthcare or education sector, with remote access available via remote desktop protocol or VPN credentials, threat intelligence firm Kela reports.
By some estimates, the managed security services business is expected to grow by 50% between 2020 and 2025. And a huge part of that growth will by XDR, says Colin O'Connor, COO of ReliaQuest. He explains why XDR is far more than just vendor hype.
Security operations focus an organization’s efforts around threat prevention, detection, and response. This then depends upon effective data collection, processing, and analysis, followed by data-driven decision making.
While organizations have years of experience in these areas, security operations processes and...
What if every endpoint deployed throughout your organization had a magic all-seeing eagle eye, watching and recording everything it saw? And at the first sign of trouble -at any part of your network, be it at the email, web proxy, firewall, IPS, DNS security or endpoint level, could automatically block the attack and...
Calls are growing for an investigation into how commercial Pegasus spyware developed by Israel's NSO Group gets sold to autocratic governments and used to target journalists, lawyers, human rights advocates and others, with some lawmakers saying "the hacking-for-hire industry must be brought under control."
Cyber attacks on critical infrastructure are on the rise. A recent survey found that 9 out of 10 OT organizations experienced at least one intrusion in the past year.

Why operational technology endpoints are vulnerable
How FortiEDR addresses challenges of OT environments
With traditional endpoint security solutions, it’s not a matter of if a security breach happens, but when. These EDR solutions not only lack the ability to keep pace with modern threats, but come with hidden costs that drain budgets and slow operations.
Intelligence-Driven Threat Detection is Critical to Risk Mitigation and Management
Many organizations have invested in improving their threat detection capabilities over the past two years and express increased confidence in their ability to stop threats that have penetrated the network perimeter. However, these...
Australian spies should be allowed to take offensive action against some of the world's most prominent ransomware gangs, says Tim Watts, a member of Australia's Parliament who says the move, proposed under the Labor Party's push for a national ransomware strategy, would deter attackers.
XDR - cross-layered detection and response - should be implemented exclusively in the cloud or on premises, says Jason Cavallaro, national IT manager at CJD Equipment, a distributor of construction equipment in Australia.
Tool sprawl is a symptom, and complexity is cybersecurity’s chronic illness. Ashok Sankar of ReliaQuest shares ways to manage this complexity and help organizations rethink how they deploy and measure their cybersecurity defenses.
Il vero obiettivo di ciascun team di sicurezza informatica è la Breach Defense, ovvero mantenere gli hacker lontani dall’accesso agli endpoint e ai dati. Ma non c’è mai abbastanza tempo per rispondere a tutti le allerte, ed è impossibile essere esperti di ogni minaccia, per non parlare del fatto che capire che...
The finish line for every IT security team is Breach Defense: keeping attackers from accessing devices and data. But there is never enough time to respond to every alert, you can’t be an expert on every threat, and simply understanding what has happened, or should have happened across your security tools can take...
