ICYMI: News Around the MSP Industry

By Greg Tavarez

Across MSP Today, as well as Cloud Computing Magazine, we often write about how organizations are constantly under pressure to fortify their defenses. Whether it's curated threat intelligence feeds, AI-powered investigation tools or comprehensive MDR services, the focus is clear: Security teams need to have solutions in place that help them identify and neutralize cyberattacks faster and more effectively.

We saw the likes of Bitwarden's new standalone app that makes two-factor authentication simple as well as Cyware’s new AI playmaker for advanced SecOps.

In that vein, several more cybersecurity companies recently announced new offerings, all centered around improving threat detection and response capabilities:

  • eSentire launched its first standalone threat intelligence product, eSentire Threat Intelligence, providing mid-market and enterprise organizations with curated Indicators of Compromise (IOCs). Unlike other threat feeds, eSentire's offering leverages human-driven insights from its security analysts, promising high-fidelity intelligence.
  • Corero Network Security unveiled its Corero DDoS Intelligence Service, an AI-assisted subscription service that works in conjunction with their existing DDoS protection solutions to provide pre-emptive DDoS attack mitigation.
  • Blumira announced a free 30-day trial of its extended detection and response (XDR) platform. XDR combines security information and event management (SIEM), endpoint visibility, and automated response to help organizations with limited resources improve their security posture.
  • Binary Defense launched ARC Labs, a new threat research group that utilizes an attacker's mindset to proactively identify emerging cyber threats. ARC Labs is led by John Dwyer, formerly the Head of Research at IBM X-Force.
  • Comcast Business introduced its Comcast Business Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution. This offering combines advanced security analytics with a Security Operations Center (SOC) to deliver 24/7 threat detection, analysis, and mitigation for enterprise customers.
  • Prophet Security emerged from stealth with a seed funding round of $11 million. The company offers Prophet AI for Security Operations, an AI-powered platform that automates alert triage, investigation, and response, aiming to significantly reduce security analysts' workload.

With a range of solutions on the horizon, organizations continue to have more options to build a stable cybersecurity posture and stay ahead of evolving threats.
