Crystal Eye XDR Update

The SASE market is crowded with traditional vendors for network hardware looking to provide security but what if a security vendor like Red Piranha provided a SASE solution with Managed Detection and Response already built in? You can offer managed security without the need to stand up and run your own SOC adding value to your business for you and your clients with Crystal Eye SE (Secure Edge) 100 and 101.

SE100 is the virtualised Crystal Eye that will be initially available as VMWare and AMI images with more types to come. Quickly deploy virtual Crystal Eye SE instances which are fully supported by Red Piranha’s Managed Detection and Response capabilities.

SE101 is a hardware-based solution leveraging Intel® Netsec Accelerator Reference Design to bring a highly efficient option to deploying Crystal Eye as a complete system on a single PCIe card. Perfect for environments where a virtual solution is not preferred, these high-density packages eliminate the common attack vectors that come with using hypervisors and other VM technologies. Providers looking to minimise power consumption would also appreciate the 80% reduction in energy requirements when compared to similar 2RU solutions without sacrificing performance.

These exciting products will be presented in webinars and events over the coming weeks so be sure to register your interest to see the latest in SASE delivered by a security business like Red Piranha.

October’s Crystal Eye 4.5 Update is bringing more in-depth reporting from Azure AD tenancies in our own Azure AD Application for even greater visibility over your Azure environment teamed with extended logging on the Crystal Eye which realises significant savings over Azure-hosted storage.

Advanced Firewall, Web Filter and Vulnerability Scanning have all received updates to improve retention of rules and schedules. Executive Reports and IDPS Reports have also received updates to leverage the new database engine and the restart banner that is still present in some systems after the previous update has been cleared with some updated housekeeping routines.

For a full report, refer to the Version 4.5 (Build 71) release notes in the Red Piranha forum (https://forum.redpiranha.net/t/release-notes-crystal-eye-4-5-build-71-4th-october-2023/418)

This is not all our team has been working on, there are also updates to the Red Piranha Docs site (docs.redpiranha.net) at the start of the month with the following changes to content:

GEN13 hardware is now here and will be shipping with orders placed after 4th October 2023 in Series 10 through to Series 40 with upgrades to Series 50, 60 and 80 coming soon. This hardware update once again brings another performance increase built on Intel technology and leveraging new features including DDR5 memory with double the bandwidth. We are excited to see the resulting speed boosts in some of our more memory-intensive applications with upcoming performance benchmarking.

Service Spotlight: Cybersecurity Awareness Training


Employees are still the weakest link in an organisation's cybersecurity. The recent MGM Resorts attack is the perfect example of this - where the attacker found an employee's information on LinkedIn and impersonated them in a call to MGM's IT help desk to obtain credentials to access and infect the systems, taking down many of its systems for several days. Attacks like this make cybersecurity awareness even more important, not just a one-time thing but a regular practice.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training (CSAT) is the process of educating your staff and stakeholders to understand, identify and avoid falling victim to cyber threats. It is all about steering clear of cyberattacks. Period!

By helping your staff protect themselves, you are helping your organisation stay safe from potential breaches that can lead to reputational damage and financial loss. It is a win-win situation for both you and your staff.

Red Piranha offers a robust CSAT program that helps you train your staff with engaging videos with real-life examples and reading material. You can track and manage their training from our dashboard and get them certified upon completion. It also helps your staff understand your corporate policies so that they know what NOT to do. Our program ensures that you are compliant and meet all the regulatory requirements.

Benefits of our Cybersecurity Awareness Training:

  • Improve general security awareness
  • Learn techniques that will protect your company
  • Train your staff with corporate policies and processes
  • Improve the organisations’ resilience and response to attacks, thus minimising business impacts
  • Assess their understanding with tests
  • Meet compliance requirements such as ISO 27001 clause 7.2.2.
  • Get your employees certified
  • Updated to include the latest threats and techniques used by cybercriminals
Red Piranha also offers a Phishing Assessment Service, a self-managed customised phishing assessment campaign to test your staff's cybersecurity awareness and get a high-level review of your organisation's overall security posture.
