Introducing Cloud App Isolation

Manage Shadow IT and Stop Data Loss Through Cloud Apps

Cloud Apps Are a Point of Attack

Protecting workers is a challenging task—for example, 29 percent of all attacks leverage legitimate cloud services to launch an attack. Once an attacker is inside the network, they can use the same cloud app to siphon or exfiltrate valuable information out of the organization.

It’s Isolation, Tim, but Not As We Know It!

Posted by Mike East, VP EMEA on May 7, 2020

About three weeks into lockdown in the UK, I was out for my evening walk reflecting on how different the world had become in a very short space of time.  Having spent the majority of my career as a home-based employee, being forced to work remotely didn’t change how I work or indeed my daily routine, however I tried to put myself into the shoes of those who are normally office-based and think about how their world has changed, and how they would be coping without all the tools, equipment and routines they are used to and expect.

Global Cloud Proxies Are Essential to the Future of Remote Work Says Gartner

Posted by Mehul Patel on May 5, 2020

In our last two posts, we talked about the unexpected acceleration of remote work  resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic and how VPNs are incapable of providing reliable, secure Internet access  to all of these new remote employees. It’s clear that a new network architecture is needed, but it is too much to expect organizations to completely rip out and replace their network architecture all at once. A measured, step-by-step approach is more practical.

Time to Rethink How You Provide Secure Internet Access for Remote Workers

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 28, 2020

In my last blog , I explored how the COVID-19 global pandemic has accelerated the future of work. Literally overnight, the population of remote employees at most organizations went from 10 percent to 100 percent of the workforce. This has put an enormous strain on network architectures that were built on a traditional hub-and-spoke model that requires security to be delivered centrally. Both inbound and outbound traffic is backhauled through a VPN to the data center, where security policies are then applied—essentially extending data center control and visibility to remote workers.

Is COVID-19 Going to Accelerate the Future of Work?

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 21, 2020

Literally overnight, COVID-19 fundamentally changed the way we work. The future of work was always going to be remote, based in the cloud, and mobile. Trends were heading that way even before hundreds of millions of workers were ordered to shelter in place for the foreseeable future last month, but the change was supposed to be gradual—played out over the course of years or decades as technology enabled safe, secure access to the tools and information remote workers need to keep the business running. COVID-19 simply accelerated that trend—pushing the population of remote employees at most organizations from 10 percent to 100 percent of the workforce over the span of a few days.

SaaS Adoption Eliminates Visibility Into and Control Over Users’ Web Browsing Behavior

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 9, 2020

We’ve been talking a lot recently about how changing work habits will disrupt enterprise security in 2020. Workers are becoming increasingly mobile, and enterprises continue to move mission-critical systems to the cloud. The problem is that traditional security strategies are not able to keep up with the changing web traffic patterns and volumes caused by these workplace shifts. The result is a broken security stack  and increased costs .

Social Distancing and Isolation—A Good Idea for You and Your Browser

Posted by Sales Engineering at Menlo Security on Apr 8, 2020

Just as physical isolation helps keep us virus free in the age of COVID-19, browser isolation does the same thing for your laptop or mobile device. The basics of the technology are that another computer is placed between you and the big bad Internet. That other machine spins up in a cloud and does the risky browsing for you. Your device receives a sanitized version of the web, free from any threats that may be hiding on otherwise trusted sites. Browser isolation provides a “zero trust” approach to web browsing.

The Critical Role of SSL Inspection to Avoid Secure Malware Delivery

Posted by Kowsik Guruswamy on Apr 7, 2020

If you think the little green lock of https equals security, think again. The bad news is that the bad guys use encryption too. Many people mistakenly assume that as long as an SSL certificate is present, they’re safe from attack, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. From Reductor to Godlua and numerous other variants, it has become all too clear that new types of malware are being secreted behind a symbol that was once seen as secure.

Mobility and Cloud Adoption Conspire to Explode Security Appliance Costs

Posted by Mehul Patel on Apr 6, 2020

In my last blog post, I made the case that increasing workforce mobility and enterprise cloud adoption will disrupt traditional cybersecurity stacks in 2020. I argued that organizations that didn’t take these macro trends into account and radically rethink their cybersecurity strategies were putting their users, systems, and data at risk.
