An early version of the DMARC Monitor was offered to Office 365 users and it has already been used by over 10,000 domain owners.

CrowdStrike announced the availability of new features on the Falcon platform for all partners looking to build security applications and services to customers.

NSS Labs launched a new ratings system for cybersecurity products. The ratings range from AAA, which is the highest overall rating, to D. Products rated BB, B, CCC, CC or C have significant risk characteristics, with BB indicating the least degree of risk and C the highest. The rating is calculated based on management, false positives, resistance to evasion, total cost of ownership, and block rate.

ReliaQuest launched Verify, a continuous attack simulation designed to run across on premise and multi-cloud environments.
