Following on the heels of our February announcement, we are pleased to share here that Cyren’s SaaS Internet security platform upgrade, Cyren Cloud Security 4.0, went live on March 26.
Integrated Web and Email Security
This release deepens the integration of our cloud-based enterprise security offerings — web security, email security, DNS-based security and cloud sandboxing — on a unified, globally-operated service platform. We’ve enhanced our ability to exploit synergies in service delivery in new ways, and our deep platform integration in terms of threat detection and threat correlation across web, email and DNS traffic is positioned by this release to grow richer, get faster, and be even more effective.
Advanced Email Protection and “Shadow IT” Discovery
The platform upgrade also brings new service features with it. Among the highlights are “Shadow IT” discovery and cloud app usage reporting, incorporated into (and a logical extension of) the web security service; and compelling new advanced threat protection capabilities for email security, most notably the full integration of our cloud-based sandboxing as an in-line layer of defense, first made available last year as part of the web security stack.
Cyren Delivering SaaS Simplicity
What this means to IT and security managers is that deploying and managing enterprise-grade security just got a whole lot simpler and a whole lot better at the same time. That’s the opportunity in moving security to the cloud, and what this release embodies — a step-change shift in the IT security curve in terms of speed and effectiveness. The old security model, focused on protecting the corporate network perimeter under the (formerly true) assumption that all relevant IT activity happened inside that perimeter, has been very obviously eroded by Internet access everywhere and the mobility of today’s workforce, by the rise of SaaS business applications and movement of corporate data to the cloud, and by the changing nature of threats, which have adapted to these changes and are attacking users with new tactics to evade detection by traditional security appliances. The question is: Considering the world has changed, has your approach to security changed with it?

Web and Email Security — More Effective Together
The logic of the Cyren Cloud Security 4.0 platform, and the various services operating from it, reinforces that web surfing and email communications are overlapping domains from a security perspective. It follows that they shouldn’t be managed in separate silos. Cyren’s objective is clearly to help customers rationalize their approach and address their web and email security needs holistically — their Internet security needs, we might say more broadly — by giving them the possibility of managing their integrated defenses from a single administrative console, with the additional logical elements and benefits of what administering unified security services should really mean from an administrative perspective — integrated policy controls, integrated reporting, unified threat dashboards, streamlined user onboarding, etc.
