Security practitioners are skeptical of Cisco's proposed $28 billion Splunk purchase given the networking giant's track record around funding and investing in previous acquisition targets. Forrester's Allie Mellen expects some customers to try out other SIEM tools given Cisco's heritage in hardware.
Cisco's proposed $28 billion buy of Splunk allows businesses to move from threat detection and response to threat prediction and prevention by combining XDR and SIEM. The deal brings together Cisco's newly released XDR platform with Splunk's long-standing SIEM technology.
It turns out SIEM isn't on life support after all. Cisco is providing 28 billion reasons to believe enterprises aren't scrapping the security operations center staple anytime soon, even though rivals with other types of security technology have attempted to write SIEM's obituary for years.
WatchGuard purchased a Massachusetts company to extend network detection and response capabilities traditionally reserved for high-end enterprises to the midmarket through MSPs. The deal gives WatchGuard clients more visibility into east-west network traffic and activity taking place on the cloud.
Elastic was named a Leader in the Forrester Wave: Security Analytics Platforms, Q4 2022. Elastic Security provides a differentiated approach to security analytics by combining SIEM, XDR, and cloud security within a single, unified platform — helping teams prevent, detect, and respond to threats with speed and at...
Venture-backed cloud security firm Wiz swallowing up publicly traded endpoint security firm SentinelOne would be one of the most unorthodox and surprising acquisitions the cybersecurity industry has ever seen. But despite the major financial hurdles, the potential technology synergies are obvious.
With threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, the old detection and response model built upon self-contained point security solutions doesn't go far enough. This is where Extended Detection and Response (XDR) comes in. XDR is a unified security incident detection and response tool. XDR solutions automatically...
Discover how an XDR approach brings data from multiple security tools, applies analytics to arrive at correlated detections, and enables remediation actions to mitigate threats effectively in any environment. Reduce false positives and enhance threat detection and response through clear prioritization of alerts and...
Secureworks has executed its second round of layoffs since February, axing 15% of its workforce as the company pursues high-growth products and improved operating margins. The company will reduce its 2,149-person staff by roughly 322 positions as it seeks break-even adjusted EBITDA by January 2024.
WatchGuard's presence on both the endpoint and network allows the company to accelerate response and remediation times on behalf of MSPs, CEO Prakash Panjwani said. MSPs can determine how much of the response they want WatchGuard to automate based on their level of sophistication.
A growing number of security teams are looking to consolidate tools to simplify operations, said Gartner analyst Dionisio Zumerle. "When you have the complexity, it's very hard to identify misconfigurations between the different overlapping tools, and it's also hard to identify security gaps."
