Welcome to the April 2019 issue of the Computing Security Newsletter.

With cyber threats increasing on a daily basis, the UK government has been recommending that companies of all sizes take a proactive approach when it comes to cybercrime. 

Quick off the mark to align itself with such thinking is Midlands-based managed security service provider CyberGuard Technologies, which has recently signed an agreement with Kaspersky Lab to provide its Global Threat Intelligence service. According to the two companies, this offers global intelligence from millions of sources, using a combination of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide what is referred to as “actionable threat data”. The data feed also includes intelligence produced from Kaspersky’s Global Research & Analysis Team on some of the most advanced threat actors.

According to Paul Colwell, CyberGuard technical director: ““By working closely with Kaspersky, they provide us with threat data to enhance our own intelligence team, Unit 12, who gather information for our customers on cyber-attacks. This data is then analysed thoroughly to allow us to make fully informed strategic decisions regarding cyber threats, so we are able to detect future attacks. By working with Kaspersky threat intel, we can not only help protect small to mid-sized businesses in the UK, but large enterprise companies that may be targeted by advanced threat actors.”

Meanwhile, a UK cyber security firm has joined forces with an Australian pioneer in payment card control technology to fight against the rise of global ATM Cashout fraud. Australian-based Tranwall's transaction security software will be offered with Foregenix's Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and Threat Sweep. Both services are said to provide security visibility of business-critical assets in a single pane of glass, and to prevent advanced targeted attacks with early detection and skilled response.

Expect to see more organisations going down this ‘alliance’ path in pursuit of the mutual commercial benefits to be had.
