On this edition of Snake Oilers we hear from three companies, and for one of them, it’s actually their product launch!
Assetnote is a cloud asset discovery and security scanning platform spun out of the bug bounty community. If you’re a CSO with any large public attack surface you’ll really want to hear about that one. This platform finds things you didn’t even know your company had online in cloud environments and then scans them for real, actual RCEs. The user interface is awesome, too.
Then we’re going to hear from Pedram Amini of InQuest – they make a box that reassembles files from network packets captured off the wire or funnelled in through ICAP and then rips them to bits looking for badness. They call it deep file inspection and it’s a great way to supplement client side detection, at scale. You can even pass these reassembled files on to multi-AV or cloud services and use this platform to do spot threat hunting. It’s very powerful stuff, and honestly that’s an interview that got me thinking in a new way about detection concepts.
And then finally we’re joined by Omaru Maruatona of Aiculus. Omaru has a PHD in applying machine learning to bank fraud that he obtained while working for one of the big four banks here in Australia. After that he moved on the PwC as a penetration tester and now he’s running Aiculus. Aiculus has developed an API proxy that uses machine learning to detect funky calls. If you’re not satisfied that your API gateway has you completely covered then yeah, you’ll want to listen to that one.
