Just a few weeks ago, my colleague wrote a blog about the importance of having AppSec vendors who are true partners and not simply hawkers of products. This has become even more important as security teams try to adapt to the challenges and pressures introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many organizations are accelerating their migration to cloud-based applications both to reduce costs and to simplify the availability of applications as more users work from home. At the same time, budgets are increasingly uncertain as teams look to control costs in the face of uncertainty. For AppSec teams, this creates a classic need to “do more with less”. While many organizations are being asked to cut back, it is important to remember that attackers are doing just the opposite.
This sort of challenge accentuates the vision behind our approach at ThreatX. This is not a marketing shift to capitalize on a global tragedy, it’s how we built our business from the start. Our approach is simple:
- Deliver a cloud and API native security platform that can quickly deploy anywhere.
- Include every AppSec feature, capability, and service required by modern security teams.
This approach gives our customers several key benefits:
- Highly Efficient TCO and Predictable Spend
While almost every AppSec vendor charges for every module and feature, ThreatX provides access to all features under a single license. WAF, API security, anti-bot functionality, behavioral analysis, and our AppSec-as-a-Service (ASaaS). It’s all designed to work together, and it’s all part of one license. If new threats pop up tomorrow, there aren’t any new licenses that you need to pay for.
- Talent and Services on Tap
In addition to the AppSec technology, your ThreatX license entitles you to all the services you need, when you need them, at no additional cost. Need access to an anti-bot expert? Help with event triage? Threat hunting? Full outsourced AppSec-as-a-Service (ASaaS)? ThreatX has got your back–for a single, predictable cost. As teams face unpredictable challenges and ongoing talent shortages, ThreatX ASaaS managed services ensure you have the resources you need.
- Fast Time to Value
As a native cloud and API solution, ThreatX can literally be deployed and blocking within minutes. Yes, minutes. We easily integrate into Kubernetes deployments and align your security with your existing DevOps processes. Once deployed, ThreatX will automatically learn application and attacker behaviors, so you can spend less time tweaking and tuning rules and more time trying to find the perfect virtual background for those virtual conference calls.
As we all continue to find new ways to adapt to the myriad of challenges and pressures introduced by the COVID-19 pandemic, let’s remember that we are all in this together. Facing the future with a real partner will certainly have a better outcome than facing it all alone.
