Code42 | September 16, 2022
Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today announced its Incydr product fully supports all major Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. The Code42® Incydr™ product detects when valuable and sensitive files are moved to untrusted locations, including personal email and cloud accounts, and removable media – and allows security teams to quickly respond in order to stop data leaks and theft.
According to a recent survey of IT professionals published by Citrix, nearly 70% of organizations are planning to implement VDIs to accommodate hybrid or remote work strategies, with just under 60% accelerating the adoption of cloud tools. Though DaaS and VDI solutions help security teams better protect against vulnerabilities, malicious actors and other external threats, they do little to reduce the risk from insiders, as virtual environments inherently depend on cloud tools.
“We’ve seen a notable uptick in the number of teams that have deployed DaaS and VDI solutions throughout their environments. Given the continued popularity of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and remote work, coupled with an unstable hardware supply chain, we absolutely expect this trend to continue,” said Rob Juncker, CTO of Code42. “In virtual-first organizations where there is pervasive use of cloud collaboration tools, such as Git, Salesforce, GDrive, OneDrive and iCloud, Incydr wraps a layer of protection around data put at risk by insiders, complementing solutions that focus on external threats and malicious actors.”

Code42 Incydr: The Industry’s Leading Data Security Product for Exfiltration Detection and Response
Incydr is an Insider Risk Management solution that provides the visibility, context and controls needed to stop data leak and IP theft. Organizations utilize Incydr to detect and respond to data exposure and exfiltration from corporate computer, cloud and email systems. It deploys in hours so security teams can address material risk to the business in a matter of days and drive the secure work habits needed to decrease how often employees put data at risk in the future.
Code42 Instructor: Education-Led Insider Risk Response
The Code42 Instructor™ micro-learning solution improves Insider Risk awareness by focusing on the creation of holistic, security-oriented cultures. The solution delivers actionable, hyper-targeted and bite-sized video lessons to end-users when they’re needed most, helping to change security behavior for the long term. The Instructor solution helps organizations rapidly mature their Insider Risk Management programs by incorporating data-driven Insider Risk behavioral guidance for end-users.
Combining the Power of Incydr and Instructor
Instructor works in tandem with Incydr, allowing security, compliance and education teams to immediately send corrective video lessons triggered by employee actions that create risk for the business. For example, when Incydr flags file movement to an untrusted location, like an unauthorized cloud application, an Instructor video specifically explaining the correct activity is sent to educate the employee in real-time through the Incydr solution.
Code42 Services: Measure, Manage, Mitigate
IRM technology is simpler and faster to deploy than other technologies, such as DLP and CASB, but it does require a strategy and mindset shift. Insider Risk Management isn’t only about data – it’s about a company’s employees and culture. Code42 IRM Services are designed to help organizations establish an efficient and effective IRM program rooted in transparency, training and technology. Code42’s services take a collaborative approach to helping organizations develop, operationalize, and mature an end-to-end IRM program.

IronNet, Inc. | September 30, 2022
IronNet, Inc., an innovative leader Transforming Cybersecurity Through Collective DefenseSM, has launched IronRadarSM, a new solution designed to proactively and automatically update customers’ cybersecurity tools with malicious indicators for adversary infrastructure.
Developed by IronNet’s team of elite threat hunters, IronRadar uses an innovative process that fingerprints a server and determines whether it is a command and control (C2) server while those servers are being stood up, even before a cyber attack is initiated. IronRadar enriches the data creating purpose-built intelligence updates for proactively blocking adversarial infrastructure, and was observed to have 98% accuracy over six months of testing.
“We know that Cobalt Strike and other open-source tools provide the framework for legitimate ‘red team’ activities. “Unfortunately, open-source tools are being used by advanced persistent threat groups to gain access to systems, establish C2, and launch attacks. Thanks to our innovative and dedicated CyOC team, IronRadar can identify threats as new adversarial infrastructure servers appear and before they can be used in sophisticated cyber attacks.”
Don Closser, Chief Product Officer of IronNet
IronRadar is now available for all networks beyond the IronNet Collective DefenseSM platform community as an annual subscription – sold directly from the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace makes it cost effective and easy to buy and scale. Once installed, customers can easily upgrade to join the Collective Defense community at any time.
“Detecting weaponized C2 servers before they connect to a network and inflict damage like ransomware and eCrimes is a daunting challenge for all organizations,” said Christopher Kissel, Research Vice President of Security and Trust Products, at IDC. “The launch of the purpose-built threat intelligence feed from IronNet is a game changer because it proactively blocks known, new, and unreported C2 infrastructures.”
IronRadar is the only existing automated threat intelligence feed developed specifically to combat C2 behavior. This easy-to-use tool enables a customer’s SOC to:
Actively block known C2 and emerging threat C2 IoCs.
Integrate real-time threat intelligence into any security solution – SIEM, SOAR, Incident Response, and more.
Accelerate threat response by exposing the adversaries and evolving tradecraft targeting infrastructure.
IronRadar integrates seamlessly with the IronNet Collective Defense platform, powered by AWS, which is the only solution that can identify anomalous behaviors and deliver actionable attack intelligence to all the other participants in the IronNet community. The Collective Defense platform serves as an early warning system for all participating companies and organizations, strengthening network security through correlated alerts, automated triage, and extended hunt support.
About IronNet, Inc.
Founded in 2014 by GEN Keith Alexander, IronNet, Inc. is a global cybersecurity leader that is transforming how organizations secure their networks by delivering the first-ever Collective Defense platform operating at scale. Employing a number of former NSA cybersecurity operators with offensive and defensive cyber experience, IronNet integrates deep tradecraft knowledge into its industry-leading products to solve the most challenging cyber problems facing the world today.
