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.

Today’s workforce demands anywhere, anytime access…and we’re not talking about an office building with an open-space model. According to a report by Accenture, 63% of high-growth companies leverage a hybrid work model. Simply put, remote and hybrid work is here to stay and these same workforces are the reason behind the skyrocketing use of web browsers.
Naturally, cybercriminals have caught on. They’ve decided to turn web browsers into key threat vectors. Even worse – they’re easily bypassing current security stacks through Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT).
HEAT attacks are actively being used by well-known threat groups like Nobelium, the Russian state-sanctioned outfit behind the infamous SolarWinds supply chain attack. The Menlo Labs research team has been closely monitoring these attacks.
Through HEAT attacks, threat actors have been able to sidestep malicious URL-link analysis engines, which are traditionally implemented within email to analyze links before the user even sees them.
In less than two minutes in the video below, Menlo Security’s Neko Papez breaks down how HEAT attack can evade malicious link analysis.
