6. SIEM for SOC Analysts: Sumo Logic‘s new Cloud SIEM Enterprise offering is now available. It features new capabilities to help SOC analysts identify and prioritize high fidelity threats and automate the analyst workflow. Sumo Logic will present the solution in booth #252 of the South Hall.
5. Managed Threat Detection and Response: CenturyLink has launched a network-based threat detection and response capability called Rapid Threat Defense. The managed security service leverages threat intelligence from Black Lotus Labs. The telecom services provider will further discuss the offering at RSA Conference.
4. Threat Intelligence: Lumu, a cybersecurity vendor focused on helping organizations measure compromise in real-time, will emerge from stealth mode at the conference (Booth #4315, North Expo). Lumu’s cloud-based solution collects and standardizes metadata from across the network, including DNS queries, Network Flows, access logs from perimeter proxies and/or firewalls, and spam box filters. Then, the platform applies Artificial Intelligence to correlate threat intelligence from these disparate data sources to isolate confirmed points of compromise.
3. Monitoring Coronavirus Concerns: AT&T Cybersecurity, IBM Security and Verizon (each of which operate Top 200 MSSPs) have canceled participation at RSA Conference. Still, the vast majority of sponsors appear to be moving forward with their RSA Conference plans. RSA Conference organizers say they are closely monitoring coronavirus updates from the U.S. government and health organizations.
2. RSA Security Acquired: Dell is selling RSA Security to private equity firm Symphony Technology Group (STG Partners) and other investors for $2.08 billion, the companies confirmed ahead of the conference.
