“We’re delighted to receive this recognition by Gartner,” said Andrew Lev, CEO of Cybera. “We believe that we empower leaders of distributed businesses to compete in an ever-changing marketplace. Cybera gives organisations a strategic way to quickly and securely address today’s fundamental needs while also providing a platform to enable the store of the future.” Andrew continues, “We look forward to driving further impact within the retail industry next month at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Conference.”

Carbon Black Delivers MITRE ATT&CK™ Coverage with Zero Delayed Detections & Zero Tainted Detections

ATT&CK assessment from the MITRE Corporation measured Cb Response’s effectiveness in detecting a range of adversary tactics and techniques
Carbon Black also adds MITRE ATT&CK threat intelligence feeds to Cb Response and Cb ThreatHunter to advance behaviour-based threat hunting across endpoints
READING, UK - 3rd December, 2018 - Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in next-generation endpoint security delivered via the cloud, today announced that it delivered zero delayed detections and zero tainted detections in the MITRE Corporation’s Adversarial Tactics, Techniques and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK) assessment. The MITRE assessment tests the ability to quickly detect specific adversary tactics and techniques as captured in the ATT&CK knowledgebase.
The evaluations for this initial testing period used a MITRE-developed APT3 emulation plan on behaviour detection, telemetry and enrichment, among other elements. In the assessment, Cb Response demonstrated it could automatically detect and display adversarial behaviours without humans-in-the-loop across the entire MITRE ATT&CK Matrix, which includes: initial access, execution, privilege escalation, defence evasion, credential access, discovery, lateral movement, collection, exfiltration, and command and control.
For a look at the full report from MITRE on Carbon Black, click here: https://attackevals.mitre.org/evaluations/carbonblack.1.apt3.1.html.
“We’re proud to be among the initial vendors evaluated by MITRE and we’re extremely proud of these results. We attribute our very strong showing to our philosophy of building products the right way for the long haul,” said Scott Lundgren, Carbon Black’s Chief Technology Officer. “Objective, transparent and open testing is critical as a means of driving the industry forward, and the MITRE ATT&CK framework offers a critical look at how real-world attacks play out. We believe MITRE has set an excellent standard for how testing should be conducted in an open, rigorous, and sophisticated way. We thank MITRE for its leadership.”
“We’re very pleased with the participation in our first round of ATT&CK-based evaluations,” said Frank Duff, MITRE lead engineer for the evaluations program. “Effective cybersecurity can’t be done alone. We look forward to continued collaboration with the industry to help vendors understand their capabilities against known adversary behaviours and empower customers to more effectively buy and deploy these security solutions.”
MITRE ATT&CK Threat Intelligence Feeds for Cb Response & Cb ThreatHunter
In conjunction with the assessment results, Carbon Black announced it has added MITRE ATT&CK threat intelligence feeds to Cb Response and Cb ThreatHunter to deliver new behavior-based threat intelligence to customers.
Carbon Black’s MITRE ATT&CK feeds combine the power of Carbon Black’s unfiltered endpoint data collection and a robust collection of adversary techniques to simplify threat detection and threat hunting. The new threat feeds map directly to the various attack tactics outlined by MITRE.
“By adding ATT&CK threat intelligence feeds to Cb Response and Cb ThreatHunter, organisations now have an unfiltered view into all endpoint activity viewed through the lens of attack building blocks and behaviors noted by MITRE. We believe this results in more comprehensive and advanced threat hunting capabilities for security professionals,” said Lundgren. “The ATT&CK threat intelligence feeds directly integrate detection of ATT&CK tactics and techniques into the Cb Response and Cb ThreatHunter products, underscoring Carbon Black’s commitment to ATT&CK and other open standards and frameworks.”

UK Financial Services Retailer, Post Office, on a Mission to Modernise Product Portfolio with the OutSystems Low-Code Platform

New native mobile app adopted by more than 100,000 customers within three months of release
London – 27th November, 2018 - OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code platform for rapid application development, today announced that the UK-based postal and financial services retailer, Post Office, is using OutSystems to power innovation.
As part of the company’s strategic investment in new technology to help modernise its business, Post Office engaged OutSystems to help deliver an initial application use case: a new B2C native mobile app for Android and iOS to promote the company’s financial products for travel. The new app allows customers to buy and manage a Travel Money Card and to take out Travel Insurance at the same time. In just four months, the new team completely developed, tested, and released the app—an achievement almost unheard of for financial services products. These products are subject to numerous regulations and controls, which the team managed to swiftly navigate.
“As a commercial organisation, our challenge as a company is always to innovate more quickly and with more agility,” said Henk Van Hulle, Managing Director Group Digital and Innovation at the Post Office. “We needed a development platform that offered advanced security, code reusability, and allowed for greater data insight to help us get to market faster. We are always striving to build our products and services around our customers—not just today’s, but tomorrow’s, too—and so we want our employees to feel empowered to find and use the solutions that help them do that. OutSystems lets us develop innovative and necessary products and get to market faster, while enabling integration with complex back-end systems.”
The addition of OutSystems as the company’s new development front-end creates a foundation for the Post Office’s future digital roadmap, one that will create new revenue streams and channels that it can leverage at its more than 11,500 branches to serve the millions of Post Office customers across the UK. The new native mobile app has been adopted by more than 100,000 customers within three months of release.
Nick Pike, Regional Vice President of Sales at OutSystems, worked closely with Post Office throughout the initial project. “What this newly created Post Office team delivered in such a short time is a testament to what an agile and dedicated team can do with a robust, full-stack, low-code development platform. With the help of OutSystems, Post Office is revitalising its socially-conscious portfolio of products and services and building new revenue streams with low-code as the cornerstone for the delivery of their digital strategy,” he says.
OutSystems recently hosted its annual NextStep events for IT professionals in Boston and Amsterdam, unveiling OutSystems 11, the company’s newest version of its low-code development platform. In June, OutSystems announced a $360 million investment from KKR and Goldman Sachs to help the company change the face of low-code development and enable enterprises to digitally transform and become more business efficient.
