Pragmatic Cloud Security: Giving Web Apps a Fighting Chance

Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) are scorned by pen testers and are often derided in the security press. But are WAFs really that bad, and if so, why do firms rely on them for application security?

In this webinar, Adrian Lane of Securosis will discuss why pen testers complain, why companies invest, and the reasons for divergent opinions on these platforms. He will offer a pragmatic view of what you can reasonably expect to get from a WAF, and discuss how to deploy, managing, and integrating a Web Application Firewall into your application security program.

Whether you’re new to WAFs or simply want to get more out of your current technology, you’ll appreciate Adrian’s ideas for leveraging WAF strengths and overcoming WAF weaknesses. This webinar is based on a research white paper that you can download at the webinar.

  • The Changing Threat Landscape: Findings from the Alert Logic Cybersecurity Brief Aug 20 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Stephanie Best, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Alert Logic & Mark Riddle, Technical Product Marketing Manager, Alert Logic
    Each year, Alert Logic SOC analysts and threat researchers investigate recent changes in the threat landscape. The findings from this investigation are summarized the 2020 Alert Logic Cybersecurity Brief. Join this webinar to learn more about the attack types, techniques, and trends that our SOC and threat researchers have seen over the past year.

    Some of the observations include:
    •Application-level attacks are on the rise but there are several methods that best protect organizations from them
    •An increasingly and suddenly remote workforce has led to higher attack numbers; however increased vulnerability detection has led to fewer actual incidents
    •Attack origination varies dramatically based upon the victim’s industry and the attacker’s goal (intellectual property vs. financial gain)


    All attendees will receive a copy of the 2020 Alert Logic Cybersecurity Brief.

    Jack Danahy, SVP and Chief Evangelist, Alert Logic; Tom Adams, Marketing Dir., Aptum; Fran Howarth, Practice Leader, Bloor
    According to Gartner, "The marketing around MDR is increasingly confusing for buyers. The MDR label is being co-opted by service providers that demonstrate few, if any, of the characteristics defining the MDR market and are more aligned to the MSS market."

    It’s time to eliminate the confusion and bring much needed clarity to the purpose, efficacy, and value of managed detection and response (MDR) as a critical element in organizational security planning.

    Join Alert Logic and a host of industry thought leaders for seven interactive panel discussions, addressing:

    - What defines MDR?
    - Why is MDR evolving as a form of protection?
    - What capabilities and value should you expect from your MDR provider?

    Based on The MDR Manifesto – an examination of the critical capabilities necessary to deliver MDR – each webcast will feature one of seven essential tenets of comprehensive MDR.

  • Stories from the SOC: Identifying an unknown, vulnerable website Recorded: Jun 9 2020 20 mins
    Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect & Aled Evans, Solution Engineer
    Web and application attacks against vulnerable assets that you are aware of are enough a concern - but what if there are legacy assets present in your environment that you aren't aware of? We understand that infrastructure and migration projects move at such a rapid pace that it's often difficult to keep track of everything. In this webinar we'll see an example of how we can use Alert Logic's collected data, in conjunction with our elastic search capabilities, to uncover legacy assets, left behind in a cloud migration, but still active and visible to the Internet.

  • Stories from the SOC: Threat hunting a Citrix vulnerability Recorded: Jun 2 2020 41 mins
    Dan Pitman, Principal Security Architect & Josh Davies, Solution Engineer
    This webinar focuses on Alert Logic’s manual threat hunting activities using the example of a Citrix RCE vulnerability (CVE-2019-19781) which, at the time, was an emerging threat with no proof of concept (PoC), indicators of compromise (IoC) or indicators of attack (IoA) publicly available. We’ll discuss how our Threat Researchers and SOC analysts worked together to identify these new exploits, and how we were able to then identify and notify the rest of our customer base who displayed similar signs of vulnerability, before being targeted.
