FedRAMP is a program coordinated by the US General Services Administration and the Department of Homeland Defense that inspects cloud-based solutions for compliance with 325 distinct security controls.
We asked Roger Bell, Head of Content, to tell us about the important work that happens behind the scenes to optimise the technology we use to deliver our ThreatDetect™ MDR service and protect our clients 24/7.
In today’s threat landscape there is no escape from having a 360° view to protect crucial organization assets. The criticality of the matter is greatly amplified in these times where working remotely has become vastly common among Enterprises and SMBs alike. An ideal security solution would combine threat detection & response on cloud resources as well as on the endpoint level, providing extensive, real-time and impactful coverage customers desperately need.
Security and defense theory are inextricably entwined. Consider medieval castles. They were designed as a defensive mechanism that provided security to those within, most of whom were simply civilians hiding behind the walls for protection from invaders. Within cybersecurity, multiple concepts from defense and war theory can be applied to better address the cyber risks facing organizations. In fact, the term Bastion Host refers to a Bastion which has very militaristic connotations.
In this blog, we explain what XDR is, how it differs to EDR, NDR and MDR, and outline some key factors to consider when deciding where to invest your organisation’s security budget.
