Blackpoint Cyber expands cloud security offering

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. – Blackpoint Cyber, a SaaS-based managed detection and response (MDR) solution provider, has announced the expansion of its cutting-edge cloud security product, Cloud Response, to Google Workspace.

Blackpoint first introduced Cloud Response for Microsoft 365 to partners in June 2022. The company said that Cloud Response will protect both Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace environments by early October, 2023.

This expansion enhances the security of Google Workspace and safeguards users through the 24/7 detection and prevention of unauthorized Google Account access and malicious Gmail activity. Cloud Response for Google Workspace will be available through Blackpoint Response.

“As businesses, hospitals, academia, and individuals continue to rely heavily on cloud platforms such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, we recognized the pressing need for a layer of managed security that detects and counteracts cyberthreats in these settings,” said Xavier Salinas, chief technology officer at Blackpoint. “Cloud Response for Google Workspace integrates flawlessly with our ecosystem, delivering optimal protection for both our partners and their clients on their most significant cloud attack surface. This security is crucial for the longevity of businesses. We've observed that cloud threats occur at almost double the rate of on-premises threats. Moreover, Cloud Response for Google Workspace enriches the data pool for our SOC team and goes beyond built-in security measures, enabling more informed and contextual responses.”

Detection features of Cloud Response for Google Workspace include: malicious Google Account login analytics, malicious Gmail detections, and the ability to respond and disable a Google Account

Upon detection of these malicious activities, Blackpoint’s 24/7 SOC takes swift action. “We disable accounts when malicious activity is detected on behalf of the partner to keep their information and data secure from evolving threats. MSPs can rest easy knowing that they are shielded against even the most sophisticated cyberthreats allowing them to focus on their core operations and serving the businesses they oversee,” said Wilfredo Santiago, SVP, response operations center, at Blackpoint.
