Rubrik Launches Radar, an Intelligent Application to Defend Against Ransomware

Grazed from Rubrik

Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, announced the general availability of Polaris Radar, the latest data management application built on the Polaris SaaS platform. Polaris Radar leverages machine learning to model threat behavior, accelerating how enterprises mitigate data security incidents. In the event of an attack, such as ransomware, enterprises can now minimize business disruption and data loss by recovering in just a few clicks across their entire environment.

Ransomware attacks are intensifying in scale and sophistication, and the perpetrators are better at evading countermeasures. A recent NTT Security survey revealed that ransomware attacks rose 350 percent in 2017 over the previous year. According to a survey conducted by endpoint protection provider Barkly, 71 percent of organizations were infected by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their prevention controls. Enterprises must act quickly to contain the risks posed by ransomware in order to minimize cost, recovery time, and reputational damage. A holistic ransomware response strategy integrates accelerated detection and recovery alongside prevention measures, ensuring strong resiliency in the face of cyber threats.

Dynatrace announces Software Intelligence support for Google Cloud Platform

Grazed from Dynatrace

Software intelligence company, Dynatrace, today announced at Google Cloud Next 2018, automated support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environments. With this announcement, operations teams can extend the scope of the Dynatrace platform to workloads in Google Cloud, eliminating manual and siloed monitoring of independent Kubernetes clusters, and enabling automatic AI-assisted answers to performance problems across GCP workloads.

"Historically, due to the complexity of enterprise cloud environments, monitoring solutions for GCP have operated in siloes, focusing only on Kubernetes clusters or workloads independently. This has rendered organizations unable to understand how performance problems within one application or container may be impacting the performance of others. As a result, enterprises can easily overlook performance issues that put the software performance at risk," said Alois Reitbauer, VP, Chief Technology Strategist, Dynatrace.

Symantec Introduces Cloud Workload Protection Suite; Automates Visibility & Security for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform

Grazed from Symantec

Symantec Corp. has announced new additions to Symantec Cloud Workload Protection (CWP) Suite, adding multilayered anti-malware scanning for workloads, protecting both compute and storage.

The demand for greater business agility has led many organizations to adopt a hybrid cloud infrastructure often combining on-premises, public and private clouds. However, traditional on-premises security tools do not have the cloud-native integrations required to protect and scale with workloads and storage in these dynamic environments. Symantec CWP and CWP for Storage include multilayered anti-malware protection powered by industry-leading Symantec Endpoint Security (SEP) technologies to help discover and mitigate viruses and threats. CWP helps automatically discover, visualize and protect workloads across heterogeneous hybrid cloud data center environments using a single agent, single console solution. The solution supports physical on-premises servers, virtualized private clouds, and public cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
