Bandura Cyber’s Threat Intelligence Gateway (TIG) is an ideal, low cost solution which enables managed security service providers (MSSPs) to gather telemetry, apply threat intelligence and block threats from countries and botnets at a scale and pricepoint beyond what firewalls, threat intelligence platforms and network intrusion prevention systems can accomplish. In this blog entry, I’ve interviewed Bandura’s Chief Technical Officer, Patrick McGarry, about how MSSPs can leverage Bandura to offer their customers better protection at an affordable and scalable price point.

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.

The cyber industry continues to innovate and offer new ways to help organizations stay secure and compliant. Over the past few months I’ve observed analyst, media and pundit coverage of three new cyber product categories — software defined segmentation, threat intelligence gateways and automated breach simulation. All three offer many new ways to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your security programs. I will discuss each briefly and reference relevant Gula Tech Adventures portfolio companies in these new categories.
