RSA Conference 2024: Cato Networks to showcase Security Evasion Tactics

Threat intelligence team to reveal hackers’ latest techniques for bypassing today’s overly complex cybersecurity landscape

Cato Networks, the SASE leader, today announced that Cato CTRL, the SASE leader’s cyber threat intelligence (CTI) research team, will demonstrate threat actors’ latest tactics designed to capitalize on organizations’ complex security architectures during presentations at the upcoming RSA Conference 2024. The talks headline Cato’s numerous media, customer, and partner activities at the conference.

“Today’s security landscape is plagued by a patchwork of point solutions that often fail to challenge the threats posed by attackers while creating a chaos of complexity to manage,” said Etay Maor, Chief Security Strategist at Cato Networks and a founding member of Cato CTRL. “Faced with evolving threats and recent reports revealing that security complexity has the largest dollar effect on the cost of a data breach, organizations cannot afford to ignore updating their security architecture.”

Talks featuring Cato CTRL include:

  • “The Price is WRONG – An Analysis of Security Complexity” on May 6, 2024, at 10:50 a.m. PT. Maor will dissect examples of attacks where security complexity was the overarching cause of the attacks. With data from over 2,200 organizations, Maor will illuminate organizations’ blind spots and limited network visibility.
  • “Flying Under the Radar – New Security Evasion Techniques” on May 7, 2024, at 8:30 a.m. PT. Maor will be joined by Tal Darsan, manager of managed cybersecurity services at Cato Networks, to reveal the current evasion techniques used by attackers and describe mitigation strategies.

Not a Platform? Shred IT!

RSA Conference is expected to host hundreds of different security vendors this year, with many marketing point solutions as a platform. As the world’s first SASE platform, Cato Networks invites conference attendees to visit the SASE leader’s booth #4401 in Moscone North Expo to participate in a digital game to “drop and shred” any point solutions or hardware that are not part of a true security platform. Participants will be entered to win an Apple Vision Pro headset.

Up for a Challenge?

Additionally, at AppSec Sandbox in Moscone South’s second-floor ballroom, attendees can play “capture the flag” with Vitaly Simonovich, threat intelligence researcher at Cato Networks, and Avishay Zawoznik, team leader of Cato’s security content team. Participants will be challenged to hack a large language model (LLM) via prompt injections, with increasing levels of difficulty. Attendees can make an attempt at the following times:

  • Tuesday, May 7 between 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. PT
  • Wednesday, May 8 between 1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. PT
  • Thursday, May 9 between 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT

Meet Cato, Toast SASE

Mingle with market leaders and members of the Cato team for cocktails and conversation at the Marriott Marquis’ View Lounge on May 7 at 6:00 p.m. PT.
