  1. Infoblox research finds explosion of personal and IoT devices – “Due to the poor security levels of many consumer and IoT devices, there is a very real threat posed by those operating under the radar of organisations’ traditional security policies. These devices present a weak entry point for cybercriminals into the network, and a serious security risk to the company.”
  2. Qualys Announces Letter of Intent to Acquire Second Front Systems – Second Front Systems sources cutting-edge solutions in cybersecurity and advanced intelligence analytics, and delivers these solutions by working to engage the appropriate government stakeholders and modifying technology platforms to address mission requirements. Second Front Systems is currently a Qualys channel partner delivering solutions to federal agencies using the Qualys Gov Platform.

  5. Fortinet acquires Bradford Networks – “According to a recent Forrester study, 82% of companies surveyed are unable to even identify all devices accessing their networks. The integration of Bradford Networks’ technology with Fortinet’s Security Fabric provides large enterprises with the continuous visibility, micro-segmentation and access control technology they need to contain threats and block untrusted devices from accessing the network.” Essentially, this is NAC.
  6. Tenable Extends Cloud Application Security Scanning Capabilities – With the update, Tenable now enables organizations to automatically identify and track assets in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure, in addition to Amazon Web Services (AWS), which was already supported.
