Just Because You Don’t see Hackers, Doesn’t Mean They’re Not in Your Network
An enterprise trying to protect its digital resources from hackers is in some ways like a ship trying to avoid an iceberg. What you see above the water line may appear unscathed from malware, ransomware and the fileless breaches we read about every day. However, underneath may lurk malicious activity and hundreds, if not thousands, of hacking attempts that at some point will successfully breach business operations. While your enterprise tries to navigate what it can easily view on the surface, bad actors may have already penetrated the corporate network, lying in wait for the opportune time to unleash their malware payload.
From a security standpoint, the massive base of the iceberg represents the amount of cybersecurity risk organizations face as they expand their computing perimeter. It also characterizes the growing amount of network and security device sprawl organizations adopt in an effort to protect their business resources and assets. Just as difficult as it is to navigate around the unseen part of an iceberg, planning and navigating the security technology requirements to support an enterprise has many own challenges.
When it Comes to Cybersecurity, You can Never be Too Safe
Organizations that have a culture based upon “it’s always been done this way” are vulnerable due to their lack of vigilance. This mentality can establish a reluctance to change, placing them in a position of unnecessary risk. Organizations deploying multiple security products often become complacent, thinking they’re fully protected from cybersecurity incidents.
Endpoint security products typically respond to known threats. They will block anything identified as malicious. Hackers understand the game, and are expert at avoiding these security methods, by creating new malware variants. Malware, and particularly ransomware, are fast growing threats that target thousands of businesses each year. With the number of cyberattacks on the rise and new malware being created every day, it is clear to everyone that solid endpoint security is a must. But do all endpoint solutions deliver the same level of protection?
The ever-growing costs involved in ransomware demands is increasing the attraction to this type of cyberattack. The entry of state sponsored hackers is pushing the sophistication level of cyberattacks to a whole new level. Sophisticated malware can only be stopped by more sophisticated endpoint security.
RevBits Endpoint Security Blocks the Most Sophisticated Malware
Most endpoint security products use just one, or at best two, different detection methods for analyzing new executables and blocking threats. RevBits Endpoint Security is the only solution that combines three different detection methods to provide superior protection. Classic signature-based analysis is combined with behavioral analysis and advanced machine learning to detect and block even the most sophisticated malware.
This three-phased analysis not only enhances the detection rate of malware but at the same time it greatly reduces the percentage of false positives. Registering too many false positives means perfectly normal processes are being blocked without a valid reason and therefore they are disruptive for day-to-day business.
As proven by extensive testing against the latest threats at ICSA labs, RevBits Endpoint Protection has a nearly 100% detection rate with zero false positives. Another critical aspect of endpoint protection is detecting and blocking exploits. RevBits Endpoint Security contains an advanced exploit detection engine that automatically detects, classifies, blocks, and reports exploit attempts. All common but also very advanced exploit techniques are in scope.
RevBits patented technology even provides protection against sophisticated Windows kernel rootkit attacks. Based on years of field experience in advanced incident response and forensic investigation, we have created the most comprehensive EDR module on the market.
Where most EDR solutions only have a command line interface for limited interaction with remote workstations, RevBits provides full GUI-based access and control over a broad range of items like processes, threads, registry, filesystem and more. The optimized interface provides single click action for the most used activities and there is an option to fully automate the process of gathering data for forensic investigation and analysis.
Navigating the murky waters of increasing attack surfaces requires a sophisticated, yet easy and intuitive approach to cybersecurity.RevBits Endpoint Security is the perfect choice to increase the efficiency of Security Operations Centers and its multi-tenancy architecture is ideally suited for MSSPs.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and are projected to occur every 11 seconds by 2021. The frequency and sophistication of new-age cyber attacks means cybersecurity efforts need to extend beyond traditional defense methods. As more entities implement offensive cybersecurity, global spending on cybersecurity is expected to reach $133.7 billion in 2022. As a part of these offensive cybersecurity efforts, many companies are implementing proactive measures such as honeypots and deception technology to protect from attack.
