Whitepaper: A Practical Guide for Shields Up - For Organizations

by ExtraHopMay 10, 2022

In response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued its first-ever Shields Up notice, warning that with its cyber capabilities and history of targeting Western governments and corporations, cyberattacks from Russia are likely, if not imminent.

Since its inception in 2018, the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has worked to provide critical guidance and information to government and private sector organizations about critical cyber threats.

Read this white paper to get the new CISA guidance organizations with additional considerations from ExtraHop for how best to prepare for and defend against this attack activity.

Whitepaper: Dark Reading: Close the Visibility Gap

by ExtraHopMay 10, 2022

Broad adoption of encryption technologies is causing major shifts in the security operations and cyber threat landscape. This has led to changes in attacker techniques, creating fertile ground for the evolution of a new breed of advanced attacks.

As attackers grow more sophisticated, and regulations require tighter security and privacy measures, there is no escaping the decision to encrypt. Organizations must find a way to balance the increasing expectations for data security and data privacy, against the necessity of maintaining visibility to ensure operational security.

Read this Dark Reading white paper to learn the risks and rewards of implementing strategic decryption. Get specific guidance security teams need to retain visibility for threat detection, investigation, and response—without compromising on business requirements.

Whitepaper: SANS 2021 Cloud Security Survey

by ExtraHopJan 31, 2022

Since 2019, we've seen more and more examples of vulnerabilities in cloud assets, sensitive data disclosure, and public cloud environment breaches. Even with these types of security issues, more organizations than ever are moving their data and workloads to the public cloud, building applications in the cloud, and subscribing to a wide range of SaaS and other cloud services.

In this report, you'll learn:

  • What leads to cloud visibility gaps and how to resolve them
  • Common security weaknesses and how to mitigate them
  • Leading cloud attack trends to help inform your strategy

Research Report: Cloud & Hybrid Security Tooling Report

by ExtraHopJul 08, 2021

Organizations choose to host their critical workloads and data in various locations. However, a significant majority share one thing in common—they know they have gaps in their security toolsets. Nearly two-thirds plan to migrate even more workloads and data to the cloud, and roughly the same number plan to add new security tools by 2022.

In this report, you'll learn:

  • The current state of cybersecurity tooling
  • The challenges facing security teams and the gaps in common toolsets
  • How network detection and response (NDR) can help fill security gaps

Whitepaper: Cloud Security is Much More than Prevention and Compliance

by ExtraHopJul 08, 2021

It's no secret that cloud security is important. Rather than jumping into deploying a specific product category to protect your cloud workloads, it's important to understand key industry trends so that you can better orient your organization and develop the right approach to addressing cloud security.

In this 451 Research report, you'll learn:

  • How a cloud security approach covers threat mitigation and monitoring
  • How to understand key industry trends to address both human and technology gaps
  • The organizational path that focuses on prevention, compliance, and threat monitoring
  • Download this ExtraHop-sponsored white paper to learn more.

Whitepaper: SANS Institute Survey: The State of Cloud Security

by ExtraHopApr 16, 2021

SANS conducted a survey to discover how cloud security is evolving. They sought to understand cloud adoption trends, current security architectures, and attitudes toward cloud-native tooling.

They found that, as most organizations are pursuing multi-cloud and hybrid environments, they're also shifting away from a perimeter-based security approach. Learn what this means for cybersecurity toolsets and how new technology such as cloud-native network detection and response (NDR) enables a change of strategy.
