Gartner Report on Remote Browser Isolation: Menlo Security’s Continued Validation

Posted by Mehul Patel on Jan 7, 2020

In October 2018, Gartner released a report on remote browser isolation. It ruffled feathers a bit throughout the cybersecurity industry by suggesting that enterprises can no longer assume that their traditional detect-and-respond security strategy was enough to stop all web-based malware attacks. Analyst Neil MacDonald argued that enterprises should stop trying to detect every attack and instead focus on “containing the ability of the attacker to cause damage and reduce the surface area for attack.”

Why Outsmart Cyber Attackers When You Can Remove Them Entirely?

Posted by Kowsik Guruswamy on Dec 5, 2019

Cyber threat actors have gotten smarter--or lazier--depending on your perspective. It used to be fairly
common for attackers to spend days or even weeks probing targeted networks for vulnerabilities to
exploit. Once identified, they would break down traditional cybersecurity defenses around the network
perimeter and steal as much information as they could, or cause as much chaos as possible, before the
hole was patched and they were shut out.

Today, threat actors are much more subtle. Instead of trying to break down the castle walls, they simply
steal the keys and stroll through the front door. By tricking users into willfully giving up their credentials
through spear phishing, threat actors can simply remain undetected for days, weeks or even months until
the time is right to execute their mission-- to extricate data, hold systems hostage, spy on users or all of
the above.

Is this lazy or creative? Depends on who you ask, maybe it’s a generational thing.

Posted by James Locus on Dec 3, 2019

As any office worker knows, browser tabs have a way of multiplying during the work day. Sure - it begins innocently enough flipping back between two news articles. 

 

However, after a while, the tabs will have increased six-fold as the user inevitably gets distracted between YouTube, Spotify, and Salesforce. When done on a large scale, all those inactive tabs can eat up valuable network resources.

Broadcom + Symantec: Great for Wall Street, Not for Security

Posted by Menlo Security on Oct 25, 2019

August 8, 2019, was a great day on Wall Street, as Broadcom announced their intent to acquire Symantec’s enterprise business for $10.7 billion in cash. Symantec’s stock moved up more than 12 percent on the expected announcement. This jump might not seem like a huge premium, but given that Symantec’s revenue was in decline during its prior fiscal year in one of the hottest technology segments, we think the price tag was generous. Broadcom’s own statements reinforce the financial benefits:
