Learn how hybrid work is fueling ransomware attacks and what to do about it.
Traditional security approaches are flawed, costly, and overwhelming for security teams. Menlo Security is different. It’s the simplest, most definitive way to secure work—making online threats irrelevant to your users and your business.
Our platform invisibly protects users wherever they go online. So threats are history and the alert storm is over.
Traditional network security wasn’t built to address today’s complex enterprise environments. SASE fixes that problem.
Menlo Labs provides insights, expertise, context and tools to aid customers on their journey to connect, communicate and collaborate securely without compromise. The collective is made up of elite security researchers that put a spotlight on the threats you know and don’t know about.

Threat actors have been setting their sights on web browsers since before the pandemic and the worldwide shift to hybrid work, so it makes sense that attacks on the browser have ramped up even more now. These attacks have been evolving to meet the times with a class of threats the Menlo Labs team has termed Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT), which make quick work of legacy security technology.
Many organizations have yet to catch up to these evolving tactics, and solutions like HTTP traffic inspection are quickly becoming outdated. The logic behind HTTP traffic inspection seems solid on the surface — scan all web traffic for malicious content, and block anything that appears malicious.
