FireMon has unveiled the latest versions of the its Security Manager and Lumeta Spectre platforms, which deliver new visibility, automation and orchestration capabilities for hybrid-cloud security and business agility.
FireMon says the added functionality allows it to provide full visibility into enterprise attack surfaces and complete network anomaly detection across on-premises and cloud environments.

“Lumeta has a unique offering … that fills a needed void in our partners’ portfolios,” said Kurt Mills, FireMon’s vice president of worldwide channel sales and operations. “It enables organizations to solve a current challenge of being secure across on-premises and multicloud environments.

Comodo Cybersecurity has launched a new cloud-delivered, domain name system (DNS)-based security-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that allows enterprises, SMBs, MSPs and channel partners to protect users’ digital presence by blocking access to harmful websites that other measures do not recognize as dangerous.
Comodo Dome Shield implements a configurable web filter to check the content and reputation of sites per company IT policy based on both safety and appropriateness.
The new platinum version extends the current Comodo Dome Shield, deployed and validating 2.5 billion user DNS requests daily to regulate and secure their web access, blocking 1.2 million attack attempts daily. The product today protects against a wide range of threats and attacks, such as phishing, bots and botnets, command-and-control servers, spyware and spam.
Platinum also lets businesses protect all internet-connected devices, with deployment across any size infrastructure, from a global enterprise to a small business.
“Comodo created the Dome Shield solution by listening to real-world user needs, as well as requirements from MSPs and channel partners,” said Bulut Akisik, Comodo Dome Shield product manager. “These organizations consume their IT budgets, attempting to regulate employee web browsing and stopping web-borne attacks, in complex multi-office network environments, for roaming users and BYOD, and for the gamut of connected devices. For these and myriad other configurations, Comodo Dome Shield Platinum offers visibility, control and protection with rapid deployment and the lowest TCO.”
