There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue patches to remediate flaws, many financial institutions do not apply all available patches to their production environments. In addition, when systems or applications reach their end-of-support, they no longer receive vulnerability patches from their vendors. These two scenarios describe the conditions under which a system or application is considered "unpatchable." When patching or upgrading is no longer feasible, security professionals need to identify alternative ways to secure the unpatchable systems and applications to support their ongoing use in the environment.
As Governments adopt digital technologies – employee remote access, citizen self-service, SaaS, cloud, and more – these same technologies introduce new points where the network can be infiltrated, and new valuable data that must be secured. The result was a cyber security arms race where new threats were countered with new security point products.
Today, governments are consolidating security appliances and functions to gain better visibility and use scarce cybersecurity professionals wisely.

• The advantages of a platform approach to network security consolidation.
• Best practices for deployment.
• How a government agency eliminated 10 security appliances at every location, simplifying compliance, management and reporting while improving security.
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.
Prisma continuously monitors your distributed multi-cloud environments and SaaS applications, proactively alerting you of any misconfigurations or compliance violations and even automates remediation so you can embrace the cloud with confidence.
Security teams face a dizzying array of threats, from ransomware and cyberespionage to fileless attacks and damaging data breaches. However, the biggest headache for many security analysts is not the endless number of risks that dominate news headlines but the frustrating, repetitive tasks they must perform every day as they triage incidents and attempt to whittle down an endless backlog of alerts.
The rapid adoption of cloud services, along with an increasing number of cloud infrastructure and platform services, has created an explosion in complexity and unmanaged risk. While IaaS providers deliver basic configuration and risk assessment capabilities, they only address their own services, which doesn’t account for the hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities that most enterprises require. And although the underlying cloud provider infrastructure is secure, most enterprises don’t have the processes, tooling maturity or scale to use the cloud securely.
Your organization’s approach to cybersecurity can either securely enable your business to innovate and make use of transformational technologies, like the cloud, or it can introduce unnecessary risk and complexity. In this era of advanced threats and mega-breaches, organizations face an increasingly sophisticated adversary, aided by automation and the power of the cloud. Those companies still relying on largely manual methods to deal with such threats are now seeking ways to adjust to the changing landscape.
BDO, through BDO Israel’s Cybersecurity Center and its global network of BDO firms, has specialized in establishing managed detection and response (MDR) capabilities for organizations since 2002. In the past, only large enterprises built such capabilities. Today, it is clear that organizations of all sizes must have effective detection and response capabilities as part of their cybersecurity programs. However, costs, knowhow, and talent acquisition are real challenges for every organization, highlighting the importance of the evolution of managed detection and response service
Cortex™ AI-based continuous security platform by Palo Alto Networks delivers new levels of simplicity in security operations and significantly improved security outcomes through automation and unprecedented accuracy. The platform solves pain points for managed service partners, providing complete visibility from a single data source and the ability to respond as a managed service across the whole environment. Today, with Cortex XDR detection and response, partners can provide managed threat hunting, investigation, and response across network, endpoint, and cloud environments
Using a battle-tested assessment and implementation process, CRITICALSTART can assist you with deployments of all sizes. CRITICALSTART’s Zero-Trust Analytics Platform (ZTAP) model investigates all security alerts until they are classified as good or normal and are safely filtered out. Using this approach, customers experience a 99 per-cent reduction in alerts. Zero Trust is the only option when it comes to zero tolerance
Security teams are being asked to do more with less as they face increasingly complex scenarios and tight timelines.
We worked with 451 research group to survey respondents with experience in deploying EDR from a variety of midsized and larger organizations in North America, Europe, and Asia. We asked them broader questions Like: Are there other opportunities for improvement in the SOC? What else is being used besides EDR? How do organizations plan their security operations for increased effectiveness?
The survey data indicates that there are many opportunities for improving security operations, both within each tier and across tiers.

Any modern organization requires the Domain Name System (DNS) to run its business, regardless of industry, location, size, or products. DNS is a protocol that translates user-friendly domain names, such as www.paloaltonetworks.com, into machine usable IP addresses—in this case, 126.96.36.199. Without DNS, we’d have to memorize random strings of numbers, which our brains aren’t well equipped to do. DNS is fundamental to every single modern organization, all over the world. Network operators cannot block DNS traffic, and firewalls have to let it through. Networks need DNS to function properly.
Cortex is the industry’s only open and integrated AI-based continuous SOC platform. It delivers new levels of simplicity in security operations and significantly improves security outcomes through automation and unprecedented accuracy. The platform solves pain points for managed service partners—specifically, it provides complete visibility from a single data source and the ability to respond as a managed service across the whole environment. Today, with Cortex XDR cloud-based detection and response, partners can provide managed threat hunting, investigation and response across network, endpoint, and cloud environments.
Attackers have developed an arsenal of tools and techniques to break into organizations’ networks and steal valuable information. This report reveals the latest tactics that threat actors use to stay under the radar while conducting internal reconnaissance. It also explains how automation has enabled amateur hackers to carry out advanced reconnaissance and accelerate the speed of attacks.
