A New Era in Cyber Security: Ransomware Evolution and the Growth of Automation

In this edition of The Vision, we take a close look at multifaceted extortion, an evolved form of ransomware. This threat was recently identified by Mandiant in the M-Trends 2021 article Multifaceted Extortion: Definition and Solutions, which details the tactics used by threat actors and the steps organizations should take to protect their environments.

We round off our focus on threat intelligence with a report on the latest Forrester Wave research which assesses 12 of the most significant threat intelligence vendors in the market today.

As automated solutions continue to gain ground, our final article XDR – A Timely Arrival for the Overstretched SOC discusses the growing importance of XDR for enterprises and introduces a self-guided tour of Mandiant Automated Defense, part of our XDR solution that was launched earlier this year.

Our podcast ”Eye on Security” continues the theme of automation in the SOC, supported by customer success stories including Kyriba and Corix.
