The theme at the ongoing RSA 2019 conference is “Better”. As the official RSA page explains, “This means working hard to find better solutions. Making better connections with peers from around the world. And keeping the digital world safe so everyone can get on with making the real world a better place.” Keeping up with the theme of the year, the conference saw some exciting announcements, keynotes, and seminars presented by some of the top security experts and organizations.
Here is our list of the top 5 new Cybersecurity products announced at RSA Conference 2019:
#1 X-Force Red Blockchain Testing service
IBM announced the ‘X-Force Red Blockchain Testing service’ to test vulnerabilities in enterprise blockchain platforms. This service will be run by IBM’s in-house X-Force Red security team and will test the security of back-end processes for blockchain-powered networks. The service will evaluate the whole implementation of enterprise blockchain platforms. This will include chain code, public key infrastructure, and hyperledgers. Alongside, this service will also assess hardware and software applications that are usually used to control access and manage blockchain networks.
#2 Microsoft Azure Sentinel
Azure Sentinel will help developers “build next-generation security operations with cloud and AI”. It gives developers a holistic view of security across the enterprise. The service will help them collect data across all users, devices, applications, and infrastructure, both on-premises and in multiple clouds. It can then detect previously uncovered threats and minimize false positives using analytics and threat intelligence. Azure sentinel also helps investigate threats with AI and hunt suspicious activities at scale while responding to incidents rapidly with built-in orchestration and automation of common tasks.
#3 Polaris Software Integrity Platform
The Polaris Software Integrity Platform is an integrated, easy-to-use solution that enables security and development teams to quickly build secure and high-quality software. The service lets developers integrate and automate static, dynamic, and software composition analysis with the tools they are familiar with. The platform also provides security teams with a holistic view of application security risk across their portfolio and the SDLC. It enables developers to address security flaws in their code as they write it, without switching tools using the Polaris Code Sight IDE plugin.
#4 CyberArk Privileged Access security solution v10.8
The CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution v10.8 automates detection, alerting and response for unmanaged and potentially-risky Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts. This version also features Just-in-Time capabilities to deliver flexible user access to cloud-based or on-premises Windows systems. The Just-in-Time provisional access to Windows servers will enable administrators to configure the amount of access time granted to Windows systems, irrespective of whether they are cloud-based or on-premises. This will reduce operational friction.
The solution can now identify privileged accounts in AWS, unmanaged Identity and Access Management (IAM) users (such as Shadow Admins), and EC2 instances and accounts. This will help track AWS credentials and accelerate the on-boarding process for these accounts.
#5 Cyxtera AppGate SDP IoT Connector
Cyxtera’s IoT Connector, a feature within AppGate SDP secures unmanaged and undermanaged IoT devices with a 360-degree perimeter protection. It isolates IoT resources using their Zero Trust model. Each AppGate IoT Connector instance scales for both volume and throughput and handles a wide array of IoT devices. AppGate operates in-line and limits access to prevent lateral attacks while allowing devices to seamlessly perform their functions. It can be easily deployed without replacing existing hardware or software.
Apart from this, the other products launched at the conference included CylancePERSONA, CrowdStrike Falcon for Mobile, Twistlock 19.03 and much more. To stay updated with all the events, keynotes, seminars, and releases happening at the RSA 2019 conference, head over to their official blog.
