Democratizing Security Testing

In this post, Michael Davis discusses the democratization of security testing and validation. He highlights NetAlly’s introduction of Cyberscope, an Android-powered handheld tool that simplifies network security testing. Cyberscope offers a user-friendly interface to powerful tools like Nmap, enabling non-experts to leverage long-standing security testing programs. James Kahkoska, CTO of NetAlly, presented Cyberscope at Security Field Day and Davis provides a link to watch the presentation and the ensuing discussion on privacy matters related to RF signal collection in unlicensed spectrum.

Next Gen Firewalls With a Side of Cloud Services

Prior to seeing Palo Alto Networks present at Security Field Day, Michael Davis saw them at their Ignite Conference. He was curious what the company would add to their presentation to make it stand out with that event so recently in the rear view. They showed off their Panorama next-generation firewall management solution. But the real meat of the presentation was on Prisma Public Cloud, the result of their recent Redlock acquisition. There were also demos of Cortex XDR and Demisto, designed to help combat alert fatigue. It was a lot of information to take in, but had a lot of interesting security implications.
