New platform addresses specific cyber threats

The impact of COVID on enabling technology, combined with the use of machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and other methods of business innovation, has increased the attack surface that adversaries can exploit.

To combat this issue, CyberRes has launched ‘Galaxy’, an ‘immersive cyberthreat experience’ that the company says gives cyber professionals visibility into threats and helps secure value chains.

The CyberRes Galaxy platform is designed from the ground up to help CISOs, senior executives and risk professionals by tying individual users and their specific business risks to threats that they need to counter in order to ensure comprehensive cyber resiliency. CyberRes Galaxy’s Priority Intelligence Briefings (PIB) are accompanied by countermeasures that an organisation can deploy to secure its digital value chain.

John Delk, GM and SVP of CyberRes (a Micro Focus line of business), said the platform represents a new way of fortifying cyber resilience.

“CyberRes Galaxy introduces an entirely new way for security executives to make sense of the threats facing their business by providing timely, focused and relevant information that is easily accessible with deep insights, including potential annual loss expectancy and what actions can be taken to mitigate risk.

“As the growth of cybercrime continues to increase, security executives must be able to quickly identify the threats that are relevant to their organisation and focus on what matters most: protecting the business, detecting a changing risk surface and evolving their security posture to adapt to a changing threat landscape,” he said.

Umang Handa, cybersecurity leader and partner, PwC, said the current scale of digital transformation puts cyber resilience in focus for most organisations.

“The importance of cybersecurity and cyber resilience continues to grow for organisations, no matter their industry or region. With the major digital transformation that is happening at an unprecedented scale, cybersecurity and associated need for cyber resilience is set to expand. What the industry needs is a platform where leaders, CISOs, SecOps, ITOps and internal auditing teams can get a full view of the latest threats, as well as insightful action plans for hardening their organisation’s overall cyber defence,” Handa said.
