As a group of unrelenting cybersecurity experts, Menlo Security pioneered an entirely reimagined, impervious approach to security. One that’s built on Zero Trust principles and that leverages isolation as a core architectural pillar. It’s the only way to truly eliminate malware, secure work, and protect productivity—the stuff that matters most to the state and local governments we work with and their end users.

As migration to the cloud quickens and application workloads move to SaaS, security is being rearchitected to meet a new set of challenges. Menlo Security is at the forefront of this shift. We believe security should prevent, not react; that organizations shouldn’t have to sacrifice productivity for security and perfect security is possible. Menlo Security is headquartered in Mountain View, California. Visit for more information and to request a personalized demo.

Expert analysis and strategies to fortify your organization against stealthy adversaries.
Two years after the pandemic forever changed how we work, IT teams continue to struggle with providing fast, reliable, and secure application access to remote workers.
I recently had an opportunity to catch a fascinating talk by Alaina Clark, assistant director for stakeholder engagement for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). A trusted advisor for security professionals in the federal government, Clark was addressing a group of security professionals in K-12 school districts. Her argument was that people in the audience face many of the same security challenges as federal agencies, and IT teams in school districts can apply many of the same cybersecurity strategies that she recommends for federal agencies.
5 ways federal agencies can shift from buzzword to action
State and local agencies, K–12 school districts, and public institutions of higher learning are rapidly becoming enticing targets for today’s enterprising threat actors. The combination of a large user base (citizens, contractors, and students, for example), a treasure trove of personally identifiable information (PII), and relatively small IT budgets provide a favorable cost-benefit analysis for malicious actors that can lead to a large payoff for a relatively small effort.

It’s no secret that ransomware is the attack du jour with more than 1,200 incidents generating nearly $900 million in payments from U.S.-based organizations last year alone. More than an extortion scheme, these attacks resulted in the disruption of operations and exposed proprietary data that could be exploited or sold on the dark web. No one, it seems, is safe — especially school districts. According to Sophos, 56% of school districts worldwide suffered a ransomware attack in 2021. These attacks shut down school networks, canceled classes and put the personally-identifiable information (PII) of students, their parents, teachers, and other employees at risk. But why school districts? Why are they a tempting target? And why now? Let’s explore.
It seems that no organization is safe from cyberattacks these days – even school districts. In September, two school districts in Los Angeles and Michigan were victimized by ransomware attacks that closed schools for several days. Unfortunately, these are not isolated incidents as school districts around the country increasingly find themselves the target of malicious intent — there were 1,681 cyberattacks on schools in 2021, according to this report.
