Skybox Security Announces Threat-Centric Vulnerability Management for Virtual and Cloud Networks

Dela

Expands solutions to ease day-to-day security management across all networks in one platform

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skybox(TM) Security, a global leader in cybersecurity management, continues to expand its cloud security management solution, Skybox for the Cloud(TM). The solution now includes threat-centric vulnerability management (TCVM) for virtual and multi-cloud environments and extends capabilities for security policy management, attack surface visibility and network path analysis. With one platform, the Skybox(TM) Security Suite, organizations are now able to consistently and securely manage day-to-day security processes across their entire network infrastructure, whether on premises or in the cloud.

As businesses continue to migrate to virtual and cloud environments, security becomes more complicated due to the nature of cloud architecture, from multi-tenancy to elasticity and the shared responsibility for the computing stack. For example, security mechanisms in virtual and cloud networks are different from physical environments, and even differ between cloud service providers. In addition, cloud elasticity means virtual machines are quickly spun up and down, making traditional vulnerability scanning insufficient as the environment may change significantly between scans.

To counteract these challenges and reduce the chance of human error, Skybox helps automate security processes not only in virtual and cloud environments, but across all networks within a single, unified dashboard.

"IT teams are tasked with launching new services and applications on a daily basis. By leveraging cloud architecture, they can achieve that in minutes - opposed to days of work," said Skybox VP of Products Ravid Circus. "The challenge is that this leads to a fluid security situation where assets (virtual machines) can be assigned to the wrong security group, resulting in immediate exposure. Security teams need to be on top of this, and the only way to do it is have global visibility and management across all your networks."

Whether an organization's network infrastructure is physical, virtual, cloud or a hybrid of all three, Skybox for the Cloud addresses a number of use cases in the following areas:

  • Comprehensive visibility of the attack surface in a single network model, capable of incorporating data from 120+ security and networking technologies

  • End-to-end path analysis from any source to any destination across or within physical, virtual and multi-cloud networks, including detailed path analysis on the devices, rules, etc., along the path

  • Unified security policy management across all networks, including out-of-the-box compliance checks for key industry regulations such as NIST and PCI DSS

  • Vulnerability discovery, prioritization and remediation planning with the context of an organization's on-prem and multi-cloud networks; this information is correlated to current threat intelligence of exploits in the wild

As cyber events like the Equifax breach (caused by the Apache Struts vulnerability) continue to increase, it's obvious that organizations are struggling to quickly identify and effectively remediate vulnerabilities in their systems. This challenge can be compounded by the nature of cloud environments and even procedural requirements from service providers that impact third-party scans.

Skybox for the Cloud gives security teams the power to assess vulnerabilities in the cloud on demand by combining data from cloud-based patch and asset management systems, scanners and network devices. The results are analyzed and prioritized using the TCVM approach, taking into account:

  • The vulnerabilities on the virtual machine and its importance to the organization

  • The virtual machine's exposure based on the hybrid network topology and security controls in place

  • Threat intelligence on available and active exploits in the wild

TCVM also gives prescriptive guidance of what action can be taken to prevent exploitation and how urgently that action should be performed.

Abeona Therapeutics Receives Orphan Drug Designation in the European Union for ABO-202 Gene Therapy Program in Batten Disease20.4.2018 14:15Pressmeddelande

NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abeona Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:ABEO), a leading clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel cell and gene therapies for life-threatening rare genetic diseases, announced today that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products has granted Orphan Drug Designation (EMA/OD/013/18) for Abeona's gene therapy program ABO-202 for the treatment of subjects with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, also known as Batten Disease, a fatal lysosomal storage disease that primarily affects the nervous system in children. ABO-202 is an adeno-associated virus developed to introduce a functional copy of the CLN1 gene into cells in order to restore the enzyme activity that is needed to break down certain lipopigment proteins that are deficient in patients with CLN1 disease. "This designation is an important step in our CLN1 program as it encourages us to proceed towards clinical development," st

Taconic Biosciences Licenses Easi-CRISPR Technology from the University of Nebraska20.4.2018 14:00Pressmeddelande

RENSSELAER, N.Y., April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered mouse model and service solutions, has been granted a license to the Easi-CRISPR technology from the University of Nebraska. Easi-CRISPR was developed in the laboratories of Drs. Masato Ohtsuka (Tokai University in Japan), and Channabasavaiah Gurumurthy (University of Nebraska). The terms of the agreement include a world-wide, non-exclusive license to the technology, allowing Taconic rights to generate and sell rodent models generated via Easi-CRISPR. When compared to traditional CRISPR, Easi-CRISPR represents a significant advantage, allowing researchers to perform whole genetic insertions versus being limited to point mutations and constitutive knockouts. "Easi-CRISPR is the next progression of the revolutionary CRISPR/Cas technology. Combining the speed of CRISPR with larger genetic insertions allows complex projects typically requiring homologous recombinati

LeoVegas new principal partner for Swedish Open20.4.2018 11:30Pressmeddelande

The LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group is expanding its sponsoring partnership with the Swedish Open in Båstad by assuming the role as a principal partner for the prestigious tennis tournament. "Last year's successful sponsor partnership with the Swedish Open in Båstad was a strategic effort to profile LeoVegas Sport and our offering in tennis. This venture whet our appetite, and we have therefore chosen to ramp up our sponsorship from Official Partner to become one of the Swedish Open's Principal Partners," comments Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO.
