WithSecure announces new capabilities to help organizations manage security risks
WithSecure has continued to evolve its Elements cloud-based security platform with the addition of several new capabilities and services that can help organizations manage risks associated with cyber attacks.
WithSecure Elements, which can be managed by a trusted service provider or in-house, provides organizations with flexibility to pick and choose the capabilities they need via different modules. Available modules include Endpoint Protection, Endpoint Detection and Response, Vulnerability Management, Collaboration Protection, and recently added Cloud Security Posture Management.
In order to ensure these different modules equip organizations with the security capabilities they need today and in the future, they receive constant updates that provide new capabilities and access to new security services.
APIs for integration with security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platforms is one such recent improvement. SOAR platforms combine information/data produced by different security technologies and provide support to help organizations respond to potential incidents directly from their SOAR.
“Seamlessly integrating Shuffle SOAR and WithSecure’s Elements API is like unlocking the power of automated incident response management at your fingertips. This makes it easier to establish a holistic view of any security landscape which helps streamline response and protection,” said Binu Panicker, Director of Business Development at Shuffle.
“The brand new APIs provided by WithSecure allowed Sekoia.io to easily develop an Elements connector within our SOC platform. This seamless integration provides our customers with the capabilities to leverage all the potential of Elements. Specifically: they can now orchestrate the response actions that rely on Sekoia.io’s SOAR features,” Georges Bossert, CTO at Sekoia.io.
Other recent additions to WithSecure Elements include:
- The general availability of the recently launched Co-monitoring service, with the inclusion of new features such as out-of-office scheduling (on top of the existing 24/7 option), input for emergency contact details in Elements Security Center as a self-service for partners, and other usability and workflow improvements.
- The general availability of Cloud Security Posture Management with additional environment scans for even more comprehensive coverage.
- Dynamic risk scoring that increases protection for assets that become more vulnerable due to changes in the threat landscape.
According to WithSecure VP of Product Development Leszek Tasiemski, the intent of the platform’s evolution is to support organizations with managing security risks in a fast, efficient way.
“Elements needs to make its integrated set of security capabilities—everything from exposure management to response—as accessible and practical as possible. While introducing these new capabilities is important, we’re also looking to offer a superior user experience so that our customers can capitalize on these improvements. We look forward to continuing to build on what’s great about Elements to help organizations manage security risks quickly and efficiently,” he explained.
