News Alert: Cynomi study shows MSPs offering virtual CISO services to rise fivefold next year

Tel Aviv,  Israel, Aug. 17, 2023 — Cynomi, the leading AI-powered virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) platform vendor for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and consulting firms, has published the results of its first annual report, “The State of the Virtual CISO 2023”. The report, conducted by Global Surveys on behalf of Cynomi, reveals critical insights into MSPs and MSSPs’ recent shift towards vCISO services.

The key highlight of the report is the fact that the number of vCISO service providers is set to increase by 480% between now and the end of next year, from 19% to 86% of MSPs and MSSPs in North America. Of the current 19% that provide vCISO services, just one quarter offered vCISO services prior to 2022. This demonstrates the significant trend of adoption over the last two years that shows no signs of slowing down.

The frequency of cyberattacks is on the rise, and hackers are continually targeting smaller businesses. Despite this, most small and mid-size companies cannot afford to hire a dedicated security professional to safeguard their IT assets full-time. Instead, they are increasingly turning to vCISO services, offered by rising numbers of MSPs and MSSPs. These services give SMBs access to external cybersecurity experts at a fraction of the cost of hiring an in-house CISO.

Cynomi’s report, based on survey responses from 200 Directors, VPs and C-Suite executives at MSPs/MSSPs in the U.S. and Canada, highlights the

News alert: Fireblocks uncovers vulnerabilities impacting dozens of major wallet providers

New York, N.Y., Aug.9, 2023 – Today, the Fireblocks Cryptography Research Team announced the findings of multiple zero-day vulnerabilities in some of the most used cryptographic multi-party computation (MPC) protocols, including GG-18, GG-20, and implementations of Lindell 17.

If left unremediated, the exposures would allow attackers and malicious insiders to drain funds from the wallets of millions of retail and institutional customers in seconds, with no knowledge to the user or vendor. The series of vulnerabilities, dubbed BitForge, had impacted popular wallet providers like Coinbase WaaS, Zengo, and Binance. Following the industry-standard 90-day responsible disclosure process, Coinbase WaaS and Zengo have since fixed

San Francisco, Calif., Aug. 8, 2023 – Picus Security, the pioneer of Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) technology, has released The Blue Report 2023. Based on an analysis of more than 14 million cyber attacks simulated by The Picus Platform*, the report highlights four “impossible trade-offs” limiting modern security teams’ ability to manage their organization’s threat exposure.

“Like a short blanket that covers either someone’s head or feet, not both, security teams can only dedicate their time, money, and resources to so many problems at once,” said Picus Co-founder and VP of Picus Labs, Dr Suleyman Ozarslan. “They deploy their budgets and resources to cover one exposed spot, but this
