As cybercriminals become more sophisticated and insidious, managing the enterprise infrastructure proves to be a daunting endeavor. To counter this evolving threat landscape, most of the companies deploy a variety of cybersecurity solutions to securely manage their network and business. The gamut of solutions includes end-point management and detection solutions, privileged access management, identity governance, IDS, IPS and many more. Despite deploying advanced technologies, organizations still struggle to achieve success as they have to pull data from one solution and manually input it in another and spend a significant portion of their budget on custom script API development. This is precisely where SOFTwarfare brings their expertise in application integration to address the evolving challenges.
SOFTwarfare aces cybersecurity, with a groundbreaking comprehensive platform—KillerAppz that breaks the barriers experienced with the integration of cybersecurity platforms. KillerAppz is dedicated to integrating all the cybersecurity applications in a much faster, easier, and most importantly secure way. SOFTwarfare’s solution is delivered as an Integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) that allows customers to standardize the enterprise architecture of fully integrated systems, for a better and more secure business.
In an exclusive interview with CIOApplications, Wyatt Cobb, co-founder and CEO of SOFTwarfare elaborates on how his company simplifies the integration of security applications in an organization.
Purpose-Built Security Solutions
As we interacted with clients more and more, we realized that most of the companies in cyberspace were struggling to get a holistic data report from different areas of the business. When companies try to source compliance artifacts they require a validated and integrated API. As an expert in interfacing complex cybersecurity products, all we do is API integration of cyber platforms. The KillerAppz platform is designed in such a way that it allows users to easily integrate third-party solutions with RSA Archer, a GRC automation tool which helps organization automate their governance, risk, and compliance program. It also provides continuous monitoring of data while ensuring all the necessary information is there at the customer’s fingertips to make risk-based decisions. We automate enforcement actions very quickly through a secured integrated methodology and run additional scenarios to do investigation and remediation.

The enforcement actions essentially help organizations recognize where they should spend their time, effort, and energy. All-in-all, it gives them a more purpose-filled security posture.
An Integrated Approach to Cybersecurity Applications
Many organizations are increasingly adopting a cloud-dominated strategy for running their business. While few transitions to the cloud are made all at once, some are made over time with detailed planning. Our KillerAppz platform enables customers to harness the complete potential of their existing multi-vendor enterprise security software. To achieve this, we employ a secure and standardized cloud methodology for integrating security applications. As a product platform partner, we constantly monitor, validate, maintain, and support the ever-changing middleware strategy on our platform.
The cloud-enabled KillerAppz platform also builds a dynamic networking and security infrastructure to facilitate on-premises architecture. This allows our clients to maintain an integration strategy that securely integrates both cloud and on-premise solutions. Another common challenge that our platform addresses is the frequency of integration within cybersecurity environments that opens up new security vulnerabilities. We analyze the customer’s existing API deployment and normalize that under one standard single methodology for API integration by bringing them onto our platform. With the single integration methodology, we ensure that all existing tools and systems are integrated with threat intelligence data to help customers keep their networks secure and engineers informed on the latest issues. We provide clients with an extensive library of pre-built connectors, robust APIs, and additional methods in an all-in-one integrated platform configured to their integration landscape. The entire infrastructure is constantly monitored and validated frequently to determine unusual activity. If any hacker tries to break-in, a notification is sent to the administrator using alert fatigue to quickly establish alert criticality. Ultimately, customers can improve security, reduce integration cost, and gain operational efficiency by extracting the most valuable data from endpoint management, security tools, and firewalls through KillerAppz. Our ultimate aim is to help organizations integrate all the cybersecurity applications, automate the business processes, and achieve higher ROI.
The Pivotal Role of Security
Working in major cybersecurity corporations for over 12 years, I was able to identify a huge opportunity around cloud API and hybrid integration. The very essence of entrepreneurship is that one has to have the vision and ability to identify challenges as an opportunity. At SOFTwarfare, we are committed to helping cybersecurity companies define and defend their critical infrastructures for both today as well as in the coming days.
Along the path of product expansion, we are patent-pending on biometric authentication systems for cybersecurity workflows to execute better forms of authentication. While building the comprehensive KillerAppz platform, we selected six advisory members from major corporations that include telecom, healthcare, and banking. This advisory board determined what type of functionality customers would need to integrate all the cybersecurity platforms.
By streamlining the communication of data between key applications in unison with strategic integration partners, SOFTwarfare is well-positioned to offer a robust platform that benefits any company looking to enhance their security strategy.
