SOAPA Video with Arbor Networks (Part 2)

In the second part of my SOAPA video with Arabella Hallawell from Arbor Networks, we discuss:

  1. SOAPA technology integration. Arbor Networks partners with lots of network service providers, giving the company a bird’s eye view of Internet traffic. The company uses this position to monitor, collect, and curate threat intelligence through its ASERT team. As part of its network security analytics products and services, it adds CTI to give customers an understanding of malicious activities happening inside and outside of their networks. Of course, integrating internal network telemetry and CTI is one of the principles of SOAPA.

SOAPA Video with Arbor Networks (Part 1)

Next up on the SOAPA video series is Arabella Hallawell, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Arbor Networks. I first met Arbor Networks back in 2003 when it was a leading provider of network behavior anomaly detection (NBAD) tools and the company has been a steady player in network security ever since. Today, Arbor Networks is a leading provider of products and services for DDoS protection, network security analytics, threat intelligence, etc.

SOAPA Video with Siemplify (Part 2)

Siemplify, like other companies I’ve interviewed, is a security operations technology company. What sets Siemplify apart, however, is the background of its founders. This team isn’t composed of serial startup technologists from Silicon Valley, but rather cybersecurity experts from Israel. In fact, Amos Stern spent a good portion of his career as a security analyst, building SOCs, and training security personnel.

SOAPA Video with Siemplify (Part 1)

As part of the ESG SOAPA video series, Amos Stern, CEO of Siemplify, stopped by the ESG studio last week to join the discussion. Not familiar with Siemplify? The company was founded by a team of experienced security operations experts who believe that security operations technology should be easier, provide greater integration, and align better with SOC processes. Based upon these goals, Siemplify offers a product called ThreatNexus, a security operations platform designed to help analysts manage, investigate, and automate, and centralize security operations.

SOAPA Video with ThetaPoint (Part 2)

PJ Bihuniak, COO of ThetaPoint, has a wealth of experience and knowledge in security operation, going back to his time at ArcSight. PJ is still active in this area, as ThetaPoint specializes in professional and managed services for security operations. It was great having him participate in the ESG SOAPA video series.

In part 2 of our video, PJ and I discussed:

SOAPA Video with ThetaPoint (Part 1)

In the ESG SOAPA video series, we’ve spoken with leading security analytics and operations technology vendors like IBM, ServiceNow, Splunk, and many others. In this video, I wander outside of security operations technology and interview an old colleague of mine, PJ Bihuniak, COO of ThetaPoint.

Never heard of ThetaPoint? The company provides professional and managed security operations services to large global companies so it has a wealth of experience in the SOAPA domain. As for PJ, he spent many years with security operations pioneer ArcSight and knows this space like the back of his hand.

SOAPA Video with ServiceNow (Part 2)

ServiceNow comes at security operations based upon its customers, experience, and products in ITSM. This gives the company a unique opportunity to bring security and IT operations together to improve communications and collaboration. Given this, Sean was a perfect person to talk with about SOAPA since a software architecture built for integration can help facilitate this objective.

SOAPA Video with ServiceNow (Part 1)

ServiceNow in security? Yes. The company has built upon its successful IT service management (ITSM) SaaS offering to bridge the gap between security and IT operations teams in areas like vulnerability management and incident response (IR). This places ServiceNow in the catbird seat. I expect big things and great success moving forward.

How Enterprise Organizations Benefit from SOAPA

I’ve written about SOAPA for almost a year now, here’s a link to the original blog I posted last November. The concept seems to be catching on in the industry. I’ve had lots of industry leaders participate in SOAPA videos with me and there are many more videos in the works.
