Esentire hunts out cyber attacks

Ontario, Canada

Esentire, Inc., has integrated cloud sources to its award-winning ESentire Managed Detection and Response service. With visibility across network, endpoint, and cloud, Esentire can now hunt for threats both on and off company premises, keeping organisations safe from constantly evolving cyber-attacks that technology alone cannot prevent.

Cyber-threats traditionally targeting on-premises resources -- such as ransomware, identity theft, and data exfiltration -- are a growing concern for cloud services. As organisations’ adoption of the cloud continues to accelerate, effectively addressing these additional security challenges is a top concern. Mid-market companies are especially challenged. Cloud adoption is more prevalent in the mid-market due to its ease of deployment and low upfront costs. However, mid-market firms typically lack the expertise and resources required to effectively secure their cloud deployments.

“Contrary to popular belief with the cloud, the customer is still responsible for ensuring that their workload is secure and protected against things like credential abuse or data exfiltration – both of which are leading cloud security concerns,” said Esentire Chief Technology Officer Mark McArdle. “Esentire is unique in its ability to hunt for threats in leading cloud providers, on-premises network systems, and endpoint devices to protect our clients’ data whether it’s behind their firewall or hosted in the cloud.”

Most security practitioners that properly address cloud deployments can be as or more secure than on-premises ones. In “Predicts 2017: Cloud Security” Gartner states that: “On-premises security habits and designs are a poor fit for the cloud. To properly address the customer portions of the shared responsibility model, leaders should plan to make full use of the cloud’s native visibility and control capabilities, and augment with third-party tools when appropriate.”

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
