Preemptive approach to cybersecurity showcased at RSAC USA North Hall 4235

Waterloo, ON – 2024-05-06 –

OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), today announced new advancements to protect organizations against the ever-growing complexity of cyber threats. As the threat landscape continues to evolve, security teams face the challenge of securing every element of their IT environment. OpenText remains committed to preemptive cybersecurity measures, introducing innovations that prioritize customer value by enhancing threat intelligence and proactive defense capabilities.

Empowering organizations with unparalleled threat intelligence

Adversarial signals threat intelligence helps security teams be more proactive, enabling them to take effective, data-driven actions to prevent cyberattacks before they occur. It can also help an organization detect and respond to attacks in progress faster.

OpenText cyDNA represents a significant step forward in adversarial signals threat intelligence, offering unparalleled visibility and early-warning insights into cyber threats that transcend traditional perimeters. Unlike conventional threat intelligence that focuses on generalized threat activity, cyDNA adversarial signals threat intelligence is unique in that it tells exactly what is happening (not what might happen). By analyzing internet signal traffic directed at organizations and their supply chains, cyDNA delivers actionable insights into threat origins and targets – tracking threat actors across an organization’s assets and identifying adversaries such as criminal organizations or nation states.

“CAE utilizes cyDNA as part of our global multi-layered cyber defense," said Mark Fernandes, Global Chief Information Security Officer, CAE. “cyDNA brings unique insights that helps CAE gain additional visibility into our global outposts to enable overall digital situational awareness, resiliency and posture.”

Equipping cyber defenders with proactive insights

By taking advantage of flaws contained in products, threat actors can infiltrate an organization's system, stealing sensitive data or causing damage to the network. Fortify Static Code Analysis enables security teams to preemptively identify vulnerabilities, crucial for mitigating risks in production environments. This advancement fills a significant void in the security industry offering new testing methods and rule support for large language models and smart contract blockchain languages.

By implementing effective identity verification processes in line with regulations, organizations can prevent fraud, protect customer data, and maintain compliance with global identity verification regulations. The integration of OpenText NetIQ Identity Manager 4.9 with ACDI (Audit, Compliance, and Data Intelligence) signifies a substantial advancement in identity management and compliance monitoring within an organization's IT ecosystem. By leveraging ACDI functionalities, Identity Manager facilitates real-time security event monitoring and proactive compliance issues identification.

DevOps security compliance introduces automated compliance checks in the development cycle, powering organizations to employ and monitor IT compliance in real-time. With its unique start left approach to code security, Open Source Select streamlines the DevOps lifecycle by automating open source discovery and intake based on organizational policies. By guiding developers in selecting compliant open source components, it allows for new software to be released quickly with less room for error or security risks.

“Attack strategies are constantly changing through all aspects of an organizations IT environment. OpenText’s new innovations equip cyber defenders with the intelligence and tools to anticipate and mitigate potential risks before they materialize,” said Muhi Majzoub, Chief Product Officer and EVP. “Leveraging the knowledge we provide, cyber defenders can accelerate the development of overall threat readiness and response, which is ideal for government and enterprise organizations that handle sensitive, mission-critical data.”
