What is the Cyber equivalent of physical displays of military strength?

Picture1
Many times in our history, the United States has deployed a carrier battle group as a sign of strength and projection of power.

Highspeed Threat and Geographic Filtering with Threat Intelligence Gateways

bandura-tw

Bandura Cyber solves a variety of network security use cases for customers seeking to deploy a threat intelligence gateway. First, it can protect them by filtering 100% of all available hostile threat intelligence. I’ve found that large enterprises don’t deploy all of their threat intelligence to their firewalls because of performance impact and small business doesn’t buy threat feeds or know how to make use of them. Second, it can prevent and report traffic to or from countries, including hostile countries and countries with no business reason to be communicating with. For example, Bandura Cyber offers a very low-cost solution that can block all traffic communication with Russia that can be deployed to election infrastructure by entry level IT staff. And third, it can act as a control plane for orchestration products or managed detection and response firms that don’t have permission to modify firewall configurations. In this blog post, I asked Bandura Cyber Chief Strategy Office, Todd Weller, for an overview of the Threat Intelligence Gateway industry and more information about Bandura Cyber. Bandura Cyber is a Gula Tech Adventures portfolio company.
