As cybercrime rates continue to rise, the US government is aiming to strengthen the country’s cybersecurity capabilities as well as its general approach to technology governance. President Joe Biden just released a brand new National Cybersecurity Strategy, outlining the government’s efforts to protect cyberspace and build a resilient digital ecosystem that is easier to defend than attack — and that is open and safe for everybody. The strategy is part of a larger effort by the Biden administration to tighten cyber and technical governance, including initiatives to increase accountability for technology companies, tighten privacy safeguards, and promote online fairness. The world is becoming more complex, and cyberthreats are becoming more sophisticated, with ransomware attacks costing the US economy millions of dollars. According to IBM, the average ransomware attack will cost more than $4.5 million in 2022. Meanwhile, according to Google data, state-sponsored cyberattacks targeting NATO users surged by 300% in 2022 compared to 2020. Companies like HUB Cyber Security (NASDAQ:HUBC), Palo Alto Network (NASDAQ:PANW), CrowdStrike (NASDAQ:CRWD), Okta Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA), and Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT) are working on cybersecurity solutions to enhance safety for both public and private organizations.
Founded in 2017 by veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces’ 8200 and 81 special intelligence units, HUB Cyber Security (NASDAQ:HUBC) is a developer of confidential computing cybersecurity solutions that safeguard sensitive commercial and government data. The company is creating a paradigm shift in the cybersecurity market by using a unique proprietary hardware-level approach to protect sensitive and commercial data at every stage of the computing lifecycle as well as a wide range of products, solutions, and industry use cases, including innovative confidential computing devices.
HUB has continued to bolster its leadership team in order to driver the best possible cybersecurity solutions to its clients. On March 20, the company announced the addition of John L. Rogers to its Advisory Board.
Rogers brings over 25 years of experience at the intersection of technology, security, public policy, and global challenges. He previously served as a key facilitator between the White House and Congress for the US Department of Defense, the CEO of a billion-dollar mobility company and a national campaign leader for Michael J. Fox’s campaign around stem cells.
His extensive knowledge of government relations and experience in applying diverse industry tech to national security solutions offers valuable strategic guidance to HUB at a time when confidential computing is gaining serious momentum within the growing cybersecurity sector thanks to digitization and increasingly complex security challenges across industries and countries worldwide.
HUB Cyber Security also introduced a new cyber risk management solution for the insurance market. The system enables insurance companies and reinsurers to evaluate, price, and underwrite cyber insurance policies. Users are given access to a secure file vault, which lessens the likelihood of an attack and the possible damage caused by lost or corrupted data.
According to HUB, the technology provides three primary layers of protection: it makes it far more difficult for malware to enter client computers, it detects and cleans malware in milliseconds, and it detects and cleans malware that attempts to steal sensitive information. Data transmission is halted. HUB is collaborating with Virtual I Technologies to offer an easy-to-deploy low-cost security bundle that includes HUB technology.
“The new Hub solution provides a twofold advantage: supplemental redundancy of data secured at its highest security level, by this making risk assessment and mitigation easier to accomplish, resulting in a lesser risk to insurers enabling them to lower prices and bring more companies to be able to purchase cyber insurance policies,” said CEO of HUB Security Uzi Moskowitz. “It’s a win-win situation.”
Two days prior, HUB announced the launch of a unique cybersecurity solution for Google Cloud that leverages the company’s core technologies – isolation, governance, and tight access control. According to the company, this solution is a potential paradigm shift in cybersecurity, providing protection for data at rest, in transit and particularly, data in use, when it cannot be encrypted and is most exposed to potential attacks.
Many industries are beginning to move to cloud processing for its flexibility and low cost, however despite all of the benefits, security and privacy of customer data remains a top concern. In the past, cloud providers solved this issue with data encryption, but with increased risk and responsibility as customers must protect their own encryption keys.
HUB is working with Google to solve this problem by using confidential computing to compensate for cloud weaknesses, providing a secure environment for the creation and distribution of keys. The company is seeking to provide an easy-to-scale, high-fidelity solution for both small and large businesses in heavily regulated industries including insurance, finance, and healthcare.
Cybersecurity Companies Enhancing Security Solutions
The leading provider of cybersecurity services globally, Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ:PANW), has released its 2023 State of Cloud-Native Security Report. More than 2,500 C-level executives from around the world were polled for the reportto learn more about their cloud adoption plans and how well they are performing. The majority of businesses are finding it difficult to automate cloud security and reduce risks as more businesses of all sizes move more of their operations to the cloud. It’s one of the reasons why many businesses are seeking for fewer providers that can provide stronger security capabilities and striving to increase security sooner in the development process.
For the third year running, CrowdStrike (NASDAQ:CRWD), a pioneer in cloud-delivered endpoint, cloud workload, identity, and data security, has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) for 2022. Gartner evaluated 18 vendors, including CrowdStrike. Since establishing the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) category and upending the Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) market, CrowdStrike has been a leader in providing solutions that thwart attacks across the full business attack surface. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform now integrates endpoint security, cloud security, identity protection, data protection, managed services, security and IT operations, threat intelligence, and observability based on a single, lightweight agent architecture.
Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA), a leading independent identity supplier, has introduced Okta for US Military, a new IL4 identity environment designed specifically for the Department of Defense and approved mission partners. It is a modern, cloud-native identification solution for DoD identity data classified as Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) which requires IL4-level protection, hosted on the.mil domain. Okta for US Military is intended to help the Department of Defense’s software modernization, cloud adoption, and Zero Trust security capabilities and collaborations by transferring mission-critical, sensitive data to Okta solutions. The environment, which is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US), now connects via a Boundary Cloud Access Point (BCAP) to protect the Defense Information Systems Network. Okta and AWS have a long history of working together to secure and modernize the United States federal government’s IT infrastructure and services by using the benefits of a cloud-based strategy.
Fortinet (NASDAQ:FTNT), the global cybersecurity leader driving networking and security convergence, has announced several enhancements to FortiSASE, Fortinet‘s single-vendor SASE solution, to enable greater deployment flexibility and new secure access capabilities for digital resources across private applications, SaaS, and the internet. Today, the majority of organizations—55% of respondents in a recent Fortinet work-from-anywhere survey—support hybrid workforces, which means that most CIOs are entrusted with securing users while they move from home to office and while traveling. FortiSASE converges cloud-delivered security—including secure web gateway (SWG), universal zero-trust network access (ZTNA), next-generation dual-mode CASB, and Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS)—with networking to ensure consistent protection for users anywhere (Secure SD-WAN). FortiSASE, which is driven by a single operating system (FortiOS), FortiGuard AI-enabled security services, and an uniform FortiClient agent, improves efficiency and provides consistent security everywhere.
HUB is present in over 30 countries and offers cutting-edge cybersecurity computing appliances as well as a full range of cybersecurity services.
