E-Book: Ultimate Buyer's Guide: Cloud Secure Web Gateway

by Menlo SecurityOct 07, 2021

Working habits are changing, and it's pushing the boundaries of legacy security.

Mobile and distributed users accessing data center applications, web apps, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms, and websites from outside the perimeter are now the rules, rather than the exception.

At the beginning of the work-from-home boom, companies flipped on VPNs to backhaul Internet traffic to headquarters or centralized data centers to secure corporate assets access. But that introduced latency sapped bandwidth and created a host of issues for users that impacted productivity.

As VPN concentrators began failing from the high traffic volume, organizations defaulted to legacy secure web gateways (SWGs) to manage the expanding attack surface. But these solutions don't work for today's highly distributed, work-from-anywhere environment.

For organizations ready to take a modern approach to secure users, this Ultimate SWG Buyer's Guide will help you determine which SWG maximizes your digital transformation efforts. Insights featured in the ebook include:

  • How cloud-scalable isolation is a crucial component
  • Characteristics to look for in a futureproof solution
  • Why "invisible security" exists and protects productivity

Whitepaper: A Pragmatic Path to SASE

by Menlo SecurityAug 24, 2021

Cloud adoption has become ubiquitous, with ESG finding that 94% of organizations use public cloud services such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) or software as a service (SaaS). Yet, the consumption of cloud services will continue to accelerate.

Today's modern business has had to quickly adapt to the needs of a distributed workforce that demands agility. To meet these needs, enterprises have accelerated investments in cloud technology but have struggled with securing the work there.

These shifts have highlighted the need for a reimagined cloud-based network and security architecture through secure access service edge (SASE). But in a rush to address these business-critical demands, many security leaders may overly simplify what this security transformation involves and the phased approach necessary to get there.

A logical starting point for this journey to SASE is focusing on eliminating attacks on users with an emphasis on where they spend most of their working day—in a web browser—through a combination of secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), and remote browser isolation (RBI).

This white paper examines how digital transformation initiatives have become a top priority for organizations and breaks down the phased approach needed to provide a secure foundation and scalability to improve security and protect these initiatives. Topics include:

  • How to support a distributed workforce
  • The criticality of protecting browser-based traffic
  • Leveraging SASE as a business enabler
  • How to take a Zero Trust-oriented path towards SASE
  • Download your free copy of this white paper to learn the phased approach needed when implementing the SASE framework.

Webcast: An Enterprise Guide to Web Security

by Menlo SecurityAug 10, 2021

Enterprise security professionals must deal with all levels of data protection, from insider threats to attacks from state actors. But one of the biggest headaches facing security teams is protecting corporate data from simple Internet connections. In this webinar, our experts will discuss the multitude of ways that criminals are trying to get at your systems through the Web, including network, server, and device level connections. We’ll outline some of the tools and techniques for developing a sound security strategy. Some of the simplest approaches can also be some of the most difficult to protect, not just because of the sheer number of endpoints, but also the simplicity of the approach.


Research Report: The Future of IT Network Security

by Menlo SecurityJul 06, 2021

Is Security an Enabler or Inhibitor of the Future of Work?

It's no secret that the drastic, sudden changes in the way we work over the past nine months have negatively impacted user experience and increased cybersecurity risk. In response, IT departments have scrambled to empower newly remote employees, seeking ways to enable ubiquitous application access and improve network performance. But the acceleration of the Future of Work has come at a cost. Business continuity concerns have caused organizations to focus on improving the user experience for remote employees at the expense of security.

IT professionals know this isn't sustainable. Menlo's new research report captures the concerns of IT professionals at U.S. based organizations as they grapple with the acceleration of digital transformation in the age of Covid.

Download the report to learn key insights, including:

  • IT departments are being forced to protect an increasingly expanding threat surface
  • Things will only get worse before they get better if changes aren't made now
  • User experience is still the priority for security professionals

You don't have to continue to make an experience versus security decision. You can have both. Download the report today.

Research Report: 2021 Cyberthreat Defense Report

by Menlo SecurityJul 06, 2021

In 2020, 86 percent of organizations experienced a successful attack, up from 81 percent the prior year, resulting in the largest year-over-year increase in the last six years.

Security professionals were faced with complex challenges fueled by a global pandemic that dramatically expanded work-from-home programs.

Organizations quickly pivoted their workforces, swiftly accelerating bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and introducing new technology to cater to the anytime, anywhere needs of employees. This resulted in a massive playing field for threat actors.

The 2021 Cyberthreat Defense Report examines these pandemic-fueled challenges and how security professionals are increasingly looking to cloud-based security solutions to overcome them.

CyberEdge Group surveyed 1,200 qualified IT security decision-makers and practitioners in November 2020 to understand their perceptions about the industry's risks, practices, and technology.

The sample group consists of respondents from 17 countries, representing 19 industries working in organizations larger than 500 employees.

Topics you will learn about:

  • Why the threat landscape propelled ransomware attacks.
  • How IT security spending increases are slowing.
  • Why the adoption of cloud-based security solutions is increasing.
  • How organizations are addressing the most pressing risks.

Research Report: Zero Trust and the Power of Isolation for Threat Prevention

by Menlo SecurityJul 06, 2021

Online threats are on the rise, with 86% of organizations having a successful cyberattack landed on them by the start of 2021.

Legacy detect-and-remediate approaches have long been the cybersecurity standard, but savvy threat actors easily poke holes in that strategy and attack rates continue to grow. Flawed approaches coupled with legacy technology is turning into quite the nightmare for security departments, especially during a time where the COVID-19 pandemic has increased cloud adoption rates, drastically expanding the attack service for organizations.

Protecting against modern security threats is a top priority for businesses, and existing solution just aren't cutting it. To beat the odds presented by today's threat landscape, organizations are looking to isolation-powered security solutions to provide an alternative strategy to current, failing architectures. This technology separates the network from the Internet, assuming all traffic is inherently bad—hence the moniker, "Zero Trust."

This recently published SDx Central Industry Guide, "Zero Trust and the Power of Isolation for Enterprise Online Threat Prevention," examines the following key areas that have led to a paradigm shift in network security:

  • The rising threats of online attacks and security breaches.
  • How traditional detection-based solutions work and why they aren't effective.
  • How isolation-powered security solutions reduce online security threats.
  • The Menlo Security isolation-powered approach to security.

Download your free copy of this industry guide to discover how you can take an isolation-powered Zero Trust approach to security that protects productivity and accelerates the business.
