Menlo Security Cloud Security Platform is FedRAMP® Authorized
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.

There’s never a dull moment for cybersecurity professionals, especially when the threat landscape throws what seem like 100 mph curveballs at them daily. If you’ve kept up with the analysis coming out of the Menlo Labs research team’s camp, you’ll know that they’ve been tracking what they’ve coined as Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT). These attacks hide in plain sight and make easy work out of a lot of today’s commonly used security technology–including Secure Web Gateways, sandboxes, malicious link analysis, and more. The Menlo Labs team is always publishing content that exposes these threats, so keep an eye out for it.
A threat actor only needs to leverage one of the four key HEAT attack evasive characteristics to make their way into networks–and ultimately endpoints. One of these characteristics is evading web categorization and URL reputation engines. That’s right…if you had that much confidence in this security technology, we hate to be the bearers of bad news…you may not be as protected as you thought.
To share how threat actors can make this happen, Menlo Security Cybersecurity Strategist, Neko Papez, took two minutes out of his busy day to explain in the video below.
