Cato Networks to showcase new security evasion tactics at RSA Conference 2024


Cato Networks has announced that Cato CTRL will demonstrate threat actors’ latest tactics designed to capitalise on organisations’ 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, organisations 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 organisations, Maor will illuminate organisations’ 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. 
Drop and shred

RSA Conference is expected to host hundreds of different security vendors this year, with many marketing point solutions as a platform.

Cato Networks invites conference attendees to visit their 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.

A fun 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 and greet
