2019 Cyber Threat Landscape

2019 Cyber Threat Landscape

Are you prepared for the 2019 cyber threat landscape? While we continue to be awed at the way technology is moving forward and touching us in every aspect of our life, we are also shocked at the way cyber attacks are increasing.

cyber threat landscape

The attacks are not just increasing in numbers but also in the way they are being enacted. The attackers are devising new methods while cybersecurity companies struggle to keep up with them.

2019 Cyber Threat Landscape

With the enforcement of GDPR security of data has become a serious issue. It has moved from the IT department to the boardrooms. When there is a breach it is the board which is going to feel the heat. The blame is always on the Chief Information Security officer, the Chief Information Officer or the Chief Executive Officer. It is not just the reputation that is at stake with the implementation of GDPR. The financial implications are huge.

It is time to take a look at what will constitute the major threats in this year. With increased use of cryptocurrencies and IoT there will be increased threats which have to be dealt with. There is also a threat that even nations can use cyberattacks to weaken an opponent. Thinking on these lines have already started in many countries, even in the United States. 

Ransomware Slowing Down

Ransomware is on the decline though not completely out. Companies and government departments are adding to the security budget and making cybersecurity prevention a priority, using tools like Managed SIEM and Managed EDR. taking enough steps to combat a ransomware attack. This is not the only reason though. Attackers are finding other easier ways to make money and cryptocurrencies are one of the major sources.

Cryptocurrencies are mined using computer and software. Bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies are generated by crypto-mining which is a process that requires a lot of computational power. This consumes a lot of energy and is also time-consuming. Now illegal miners are making use of others’ computers without their knowledge for the mining of cryptocurrencies. This is called crypto-jacking. This helps the criminals to get money added directly to their account. Without any centralized authority to check the bitcoin transactions, it is easy for the criminals to use this money for purely legal purposes.

Stealing money from bank accounts continue and will remain a trend in the 2019 cyber threat landscape. With more accounts being operated online it is easier for the banking trojans. People are still gullible enough to reveal their login details or opening malicious email attachments. People are also lured to visit websites where their bank details will be stolen from them.

IoT And The Threats Associated With It

IoT is being increasingly used in the world now. People prefer to have smart homes and smart appliances which they can control from anywhere. It is estimated that by 2020 around 40 billion devices will be connected to the internet. Organizations find using IoT very beneficial as they are able to control actions without human interference. Machines can find weaknesses in them by themselves thus avoiding breakdowns. There is much more to IoT and they are being explored. This should make understanding the cyber threat landscape a larger priority for organizations.

While IoT is very important in making functions more efficient there is an inherent danger in the technology. It will allow for easy access to data by cyber criminals. IoT generates a huge amount of data. Most of the data can be sensitive information. IoT has touched almost every business running today. It is in use in healthcare, agriculture, automobile industry, etc. The data which is generated in healthcare industry can be very sensitive and private in nature. All the data is stored in the cloud and is accessible by internet.

The increase in the demand for IoT enabled devices has made many manufacturers to be careless about many of the components. Sensors are used to capture data. Using the right sensors for each of the device may be expensive for the companies. They may connect external sensors to the devices which will be easy to penetrate. Once the attackers have penetrated one device it is easy to access all the data that is stored in the cloud.

There is another problem with IoT. The companies which make the devices are in a hurry to launch more advanced models. They don’t have the time to upgrade the existing models. This will mean that these devices will not be able to combat the latest threats. They become the weak spots in the network which the criminals can easily use. Because the makers of these devices are full of orders they continue to use old and obsolete testing methods.

Threats Through Mobile Devices

As the activities on mobile devices increase cyber criminals are also moving to the mobile phones to gain from them. Mobile apps are in general highly personalized. They contain a lot of personal information which can be very useful for criminals. This information will include credit card and bank details which users will feed so that the transactions are faster. Criminals are now finding it easy to penetrate mobile apps and steal personal information.

It is essential for mobile developers to improve the server-side protection. In many cases developers are in a hurry to release an app due to pressure from the client. There are many frameworks which lack adequate security. Developers use this to complete the job faster. It may not provide adequate security for the data that is stored in the server. Many times, the developers think that mobile OS will provide adequate protection which is not true.

Storage of data in the phone is another weak area. App developers will leave the protection of this data to the phone. But it is not safe there. The best solution to this is to avoid storage of data that is not needed. Developers should also provide an additional layer of encryption.

How To Protect Your Organization From Attacks?

The 2019 cyber threat landscape so far has proven to add more layers and dimensions of cyber attacks than previous years.  By starting with a security risk assessment, organizations will have a better understanding of the security gaps in their strategy.

While security awareness training is important, it is vital that organizations plan around employee/insider threats. By utilizing a managed service for log events, you will have 24/7 surveillance of potential cyber threats. Plus, when you add managed endpoint detection and response (managed EDR), you’ll have a team of experts that are able to stop malware before it can execute.

5 Building Blocks for a Solid Cybersecurity Foundation

5 Building Blocks for a Solid Cybersecurity Foundation

The cybersecurity sector is constantly growing and is already a part of the strategy of many organizations. This article will give you complete information on How to Build a Solid Cybersecurity Foundation.

What is the current state of cybersecurity?

Technology has evolved and innovated making our lives easier and our jobs more productive. Today, technology is controlling critical aspects of our society such as financial markets, electricity networks, air routes, hospitals, etc.

In addition, we increasingly rely on smart devices (telephones, cars, televisions, and refrigerators). This overwhelming pace of innovation and adoption of technology, in times of digital transformation and therefore increased the complexity of systems, requires global awareness of the security, fraud, and privacy risks that are increasing even more rapidly.

These risks of which senior management must be aware must be continuously measured and monitored, forming part of the organization’s strategy and establishing a culture of cybersecurity.

Here we will learn about the main 5 building blocks for a solid cybersecurity foundation.

#1. SIEM (Security Information and Event Management):

Many abnormal attitudes, tendencies, and patterns are not in the ordinary. This is achieved by SIEM (Security Information and Event Management).

What the SIEM system does is centralize the storage and interpretation of records, so that it offers almost real-time analysis to the digital security team which can thus act much faster.

For its part, the SIEM system is collecting data in a central database to track trends and achieve patterns of behavior that can serve to detect others that are not common.

This system, of course, also provides central reports. From the union of both the acronyms, we are trying, SIEM, that can unite in a single system all the virtues of its two origins.

Undoubtedly, what is achieved by working with SIEM is not only better management of the working time of the security team and a greater facility to carry out their tasks but it also shortens the times of action, something fundamental for a company in case of threat urgent.

Learn more about Managed SIEM here.

#2. EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response):

The traditional protection systems which we all know as antivirus have until now pretty well-controlled viruses that have historically infected millions of computers. These types of viruses are executable files that aim to contaminate as many computers as possible so that they can be controlled and used for illicit purposes.

Unfortunately, cybercriminals have managed to find different ways to get control of computers, mobile devices, and web servers as they have a great ability to recycle their methods.

The EDR (Endpoint Detection & Response) technology promises to be the missing piece to complete that shield against the computer crime we need.

EDR produces a specific list for each client since their executables are analyzed and their behavior is ensured that they do not change. So if one of them gets out of the mold, an alert is activated.

EDR serves to detect new threats and avoid the need to block all malware by working specifically. EDR platforms monitor all executable programs by performing more thorough control.

Learn more about Managed EDR here.

#3. Patch Management:

Patch Management is also one of the parts of a Cybersecurity Foundation. Many large companies want to reduce the vulnerability of their systems. Mostly they make use of a security patch. As cybercriminals intensify their attacks, it is essential to maintain the pace for defense against these attacks.

A security patch is a cybersecurity solution for an organization and although no application is perfect, they are highly effective, even years after a program has been launched.

Its application depends not on the business sector but on the type of vulnerability that is had within the organization.

Types of patches according to their codes:

Patches to binary files: They constitute an update of the executable file of a program.

Patches to the source code: Includes a text file that details modifications to be made in the source code of the program in question.

Benefits of Patch Management:

  • Designed to work in On-Premise and Cloud environments.
  • Highly scalable.
  • Easy to install.
  • Fully automated and highly customizable.

Learn more about Managed Patch Management.

#4. Vulnerability Management:

Vulnerability Management is also one of the essential blocks for a solid Cybersecurity Foundation.

Vulnerability management is a continuous IT process consisting of the identification, evaluation, and correction of vulnerabilities in the information systems and applications of an organization.

Faced with sophisticated IT environments and the growing list of possible problems in the database and network security, IT departments with budgetary constraints find it impossible to deal with all known vulnerabilities at present.

Due to the high number of distributed update reviews and the difficulty in quantifying the value of security repairs for business managers, mitigating the weakness of critical networks and applications is a constant challenge.

Without a vulnerability management process that helps to prioritize correction tasks, companies can neglect to take the necessary measures to prevent harmful network attacks. In addition, vulnerability management not only helps the company to proactively solve urgent security problems but also contributes to compliance with industry standards.

Learn more about Real-Time Vulnerability Management. 

#5. Experienced Team:

An experienced team recognizes the high level of experience, specialization, professional quality, and demonstrated and accredited training of its cybersecurity solutions.

Our experienced team offers cutting-edge technology to offer various services such as secure web browsing and protecting its clients’ access to services and applications hosted in the cloud.

We prevent the accidental download of malware that can cause information leaks or interrupt the activity in the company or organization. More than half of cybersecurity clashes registered are related to this type of attack which causes high economic damage and losses the esteem of the institution or company.

In addition to offering secure navigation services and protection of cloud services, we provide a comprehensive security service from its network that manages all the companies’ environments to reduce the exposure of their resources to an attack and the risk of suffering a security incident.

If your organization lacks the resources required to build a solid Cybersecurity Foundation, do not hesitate to contact us. We are very well experienced and will help you to put the right solutions in the right place and manage them suitably.

Financial Cybersecurity: Are Banks Doing Enough to Protect You?

Build a Cybersecurity Foundation

Three Things Banks Need to Know About Preventing Data Breaches

Three Things Banks Need to Know About Preventing Data Breaches

Preventing data breaches could be one of the most important things your bank or financial services firm could focus on. Here are the reasons that data breaches should be a major focus.

Banks are increasingly targeted by hackers hoping to steal valuable data. Despite high threat levels and widespread knowledge of risks, many financial institutions find themselves underprepared. There are many reasons to focus on preventing data breaches, continue reading to find out a simple way Cybriant can help.

Financial services firms fall victim to cybersecurity attacks 300 times more frequently than businesses in other industries.

To make matters worse, the costs for financial institutions to repair these incidents are often far greater, which is problematic as the average data breach cost rose 5 percent to $7 million per breach in 2017. The average cost to U.S. businesses per record, lost or stolen, during a breach, was $225 – compare that to the financial industry’s number of $336 per record and you can see the issue.

Moreover, according to our research studies, consumers at this point expect their financial service providers to offer services that reduce the chance for exposure and, as importantly, quickly rectify the situation if their data does become compromised. Of the consumers we surveyed, 50 percent said they want their bank to offer these services and 43 percent felt the same about credit unions.


Since a data breach leads to a loss of customer faith and market reputation, it’s critical that financial institutions, including banks, protect their networks. Here are three things banks need to know about network security standards and preventing data breaches at financial institutions.

1. Many Banks Aren’t Budgeting Enough

IT staff needs to be able to respond to threats, and banks that tighten the budget on IT spending cripple this mission. Unfortunately, some banks reduce IT budgets to free up more money for customer-facing web tools and apps. This move short-circuits IT’s ability to defend against a cyber attack. Banks must take threats seriously, and this means adopting stricter network security standards and adequately funding IT departments for cyber monitoring and defense. If your clients find out that you are preventing data breaches to secure their investment, they may find a new bank.

2. Two-factor authentication is No Longer Optional

Two-factor identification offers superior protection, but many employees dislike having to verify their identity using another method. Single-factor identification for apps and password-protected portals leaves banks vulnerable to an attack when cybercriminals have stolen legitimate user credentials.

Hackers are using more sophisticated and creative methods to easily steal login credentials. Once they have credentials, they can penetrate the system without raising any alarms.

Banks must ask themselves which is worse: the pain of having to log in via two-factor authentication or the pain of a serious data breach.

Two-factor authentication can thwart attacks. Given the low cost of implementation, it’s a no-brainer. You may even consider multi-factor authentication to ensure prevention data breaches.

3. Third-party Apps Present a Security Risk

Third-party apps promise a shortcut for financial institutions that don’t have the time or money to develop their app, but there is a safety risk here. In the race to keep up with the competition, some banks are adopting apps that may not be up to security standards. The short-term attempt to stand out can backfire big when apps are penetrated.

No matter the perceived need to offer customers apps and online tools, there is no excuse for failing to do due diligence when it comes to security standards or compliance requirements. Approving the app to appease the staff opens up the bank to a data breach through a third-party app. To address the security gap, banks should take a two-pronged approach: First, adopt stricter policies that target weak apps, and second, ensure all apps are monitored for cyber threats.

When hackers see that a bank is not an easy target, they will look for a financial institution that has unguarded access points. By addressing these security vulnerabilities, banks can reduce their risk and continue preventing data breaches.

Preventing Data Breaches Made Simple

You need to start with a cybersecurity strategy and framework. We recommend the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and have written several articles on how to use a framework in all your decision-making.

People, Process, and Technology is the cornerstone of ITIL, but can they also be used to ensure a proper cybersecurity foundation? The answer may surprise you! Read more, “People, Process, Technology in Cybersecurity or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Process!”

Once you have the framework in place, focus on your compliance needs and risk reduction. We have created a tiered service that can not only make that efficient and affordable, but it can also actually make cybersecurity and preventing data breaches easy.

How to Meet the Guidelines for the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

How to Meet the Guidelines for the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Cybriant offers tiered cyber security services through CybriantXDR. Each service offered through CybriantXDR has a solution that will help you meet the NIST cybersecurity framework.

Which cybersecurity framework do you use? We discussed the importance of a framework in this previous post. A framework is a standardized methodology for selecting, implementing, testing, and maintaining a set of security metrics, also called security controls. There are many frameworks to choose from; NIST, ISO, NERC, PCI, etc., etc. The point is that you want to compare yourself against a known yardstick.

We prefer NIST CSF and recommend this to our clients.

What is the NIST Cybersecurity Framework?

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (CSF), which calls for “a set of industry standards and best practices to help organizations manage cybersecurity risks.”

Organizations can use the CSF to take a risk-based approach to align their security processes with business requirements. Because the CSF is not intended to be a “one size fits all” approach, Cybriant’s solution is scalable across all organizational sizes and can be adapted for specific use across multiple industries.

The Cybersecurity Framework was released in February 2014 as a result of Executive Order 13636, “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity,” which was signed on February 12, 2013. The CSF was created through collaboration between the United States government and the private sector and places a focus on aligning business needs and priorities with cybersecurity and risk management. The CSF is comprised of three parts: the Core, the Implementation Tiers and the Profile. The Core identifies cybersecurity activities and practices that share a commonality across critical infrastructure sectors.

These activities and practices are grouped into five Functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover. The Implementation Tiers provide entities with context for managing cybersecurity risks and applying a plan to their specific organization. Profiles are used to match cybersecurity objectives to business requirements, risk tolerance, and resources.

CybriantXDR enables organizations to automate the NIST Cybersecurity Framework’s technical controls by bringing active scanning and passive monitoring, configuration auditing, host event, and data monitoring and analysis, reporting and alerting together with risk classification, assessment, and mitigation in a scalable enterprise security system.

Once an organization begins to use the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Core as a baseline for its cybersecurity and risk activities, CybriantXDR makes it easier to take the step towards developing a detailed Target Profile that is both achievable and manageable.

Definitions of each function are quoted from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and several examples are explained below.


The activities in the Identify Function are foundational for effective use of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

Understanding the business context, the resources that support critical functions, and the related cybersecurity risks enable an organization to focus and prioritize its efforts, consistent with its risk management strategy and business needs. Examples of outcome Categories within this Function include Asset Management; Business Environment; Governance; Risk Assessment; and Risk Management Strategy.

Using the Risk Assessment category as an example, there are three technical controls, all of which can be automated or supported with the use of CybriantXDR. Subcategory ID.RA-2 requires that “Threat and vulnerability information is received on a daily basis from information sharing forums and sources.”

Through our technology partners, CybriantXDR updates its vulnerability information and threat intelligence, provided by multiple third parties, on a daily basis. The Risk Assessment category has two other subcategories that state “Asset vulnerabilities are identified and documented” and “Threats, both internal and external, are identified and documented.” Both of these subcategories are also automated through active scanning, passive monitoring and event analysis.


The Protect Function supports the ability to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event. Examples of outcome Categories within this Function include Access Control; Awareness and Training; Data Security; Information Protection Processes and Procedures; Maintenance; and Protective Technology.

Using the Information Protection Processes and Procedures category as an example, CybriantXDR has numerous capabilities to automate the technical controls. Examples include:

  • PR.IP-1: Baselines are created and maintained
  • PR.IP-2: System development lifecycle to manage systems is implemented
  • PR.IP-3: Configuration change control processes are in place

The CSF contains 22 technical subcategories for Protect, 19 of which are automated or supported by CybriantXDR


The Detect Function enables the timely discovery of cybersecurity events. Examples of outcome Categories within this Function include Anomalies and Events; Security Continuous Monitoring; and Detection Processes.

Using the Security Continuous Monitoring category as an example, CybriantXDR has numerous automated capabilities to fulfill these controls. Examples include:

  • DE.CM-1: Network is monitored to detect potential cybersecurity events
  • DE.CM-3: Personnel activity is monitored to detect potential cybersecurity events
  • DE.CM-4: Malicious code is detected
  • DE.CM-5: Unauthorized mobile code is detected

The CSF contains 14 technical subcategories for Detect, 13 of which are automated or supported by CybriantXDR. For example, through active and agent scanning, continuous listening and host data analysis, CybriantXDR can observe network and user activity, detect vulnerabilities and events, and alert and report on these as part of an overall cybersecurity plan.


The Respond Function supports the ability to contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event. Examples of outcome Categories within this Function include Response Planning; Communications; Analysis; Mitigation; and Improvements.


The Recover Function supports timely recovery to normal operations to reduce the impact from a cybersecurity event. Examples of outcome Categories within this Function include Recovery Planning; Improvements; and Communications.

The Respond and Recover Functions are comprised of categories and subcategories that are mostly administrative in nature, such as “Response plan is executed during or after an event,” “Recovery plans incorporate lessons learned,” and “Public relations are managed.” CybriantXDRs capabilities are focused primarily on the CSF’s technical controls, and although some exceptions exist, CybriantXDR does not provide full support for the administrative Respond and Recover Functions.

Concurrent and Continuous Monitoring

Strong security, as prescribed in the CSF, requires broad visibility of extended networks, including IT systems, industrial control systems (ICS), virtual infrastructure, cloud, and BYOD. This visibility cannot rely solely on point-in-time data acquisition; it requires continuous, real-time data. The technology behind CybriantXDR acquires security data from across organizations, using sources such as network traffic, virtual systems, mobile device management, patch management, host activity, and monitoring, as well as external sources of threat intelligence to feed an intelligent monitoring system. It analyzes this data to identify and prioritize anomalies and suspicious behavior so our team can effectively investigate and resolve them.

The Ultimate List of Effective Cyber Security Monitoring Tools

Are you prepared to defend your entire organization against the bad guys? Check out our list of cyber security monitoring tools to be sure. 


Cyber Security Monitoring is a huge responsibility for every business no matter the size. You must be prepared to defend against malware, hackers, internal sources, and so much more.

Be sure you have these cyber security monitoring tools in place:

Managed Detection and Response

MDR is an outsourced managed security service that provides advanced protection on endpoints. MDR provides more advanced and deeper detection plus the ability to stop malware in its tracks. Typically, MDR uses AI and machine learning for deeper security analysis.

Cybriant uses AI-based threat prevention, running locally on your endpoint, that has a field-proven record of preventing well over 99% of threats, both known and unknown, from executing on your endpoint, without signatures, cloud lookups, or significant impact on your endpoint.
Using AI, we can stop bad executables before they can hurt your business. Time is of the essence when it comes to a security incident. Our analysts can decisive action when a security incident is identified or a threat needs to be mitigated.

Our analysts can immediately investigate any endpoint in your environment to determine if the activity is malicious. Real attack data is an invaluable source of intelligence for your security team. Without deploying sandbox technology, our analysts can get a glimpse into the mind of the attacker and how they try to compromise your endpoint.

Read more about MDR in the Ultimate Guide to Managed Detection and Response article.


Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) – A SIEM platform centrally collects data from multiple devices on your network, including your existing security appliances. A SIEM is the brain of your network, observing what goes in and what goes out. Through an advanced correlation engine, it can proactively identify security events not otherwise detected by standalone security technology.

A SIEM system centralizes logging capabilities on security events for enterprises and is principally used to analyze and/or report on the log entries received. The analysis capabilities of SIEM systems can detect attacks not discovered through other means and can direct the reconfiguration of other enterprise security controls to plug holes in enterprise security. Some of the top SIEM products — assuming an attack is still in progress — can even stop detected security breaches.

SIEM is one of the ultimate cyber security monitoring tools and collects data in multiple ways from your system or network, including your existing security appliances. Your SIEM gives us a “Big Picture” of your all security events. With the right security experts monitoring your SIEM, you’ll know when and where an event occurs.

A SIEM is critical when it comes to compliance, but monitoring the output of a SIEM is not always easy. Plus, you must select the right SIEM for your organization. Consider our Managed SIEM service, you’ll have an extended team of security analysts watching your network on a 24/7 basis.

Free Research Tools

There are many free research tools available to research cybersecurity threats that are effective cyber security monitoring tools. The key factor is that the person doing the research needs to have a comprehensive knowledge of all the pieces involved. AlienVault Open Threat Exchange is the neighborhood watch of the global intelligence community. It enables private companies, independent security researchers, and government agencies to openly collaborate and share the latest information about emerging threats, attack methods, and malicious actors, promoting greater security across the entire community.

Trained Experts

Of all the cyber security monitoring tools available, having a trained expert on your team could be one of the most critical. A common mistake we see is when organizations add cyber security monitoring to their overstaffed IT team’s plate. Untrained employees aren’t able to resolve cyber security issues immediately or even know what to look for.

At Cybriant, we recommend outsourcing to a professional cyber security monitoring company like us. The Cybersecurity experts on our team are professionals who have attained specialized in-depth expertise and proven knowledge in the essential areas of proactive cyber threat detection and mitigation. Our cyber security experts act as an extension of your IT team, understand your infrastructure, and are ready to defend your network.

Network Traffic Analysis Framework

Due to the increase in internet-based services, the size of network traffic data has become so large and complex that it is very difficult to process with traditional data processing tools. Cyber security monitoring is a major problem for organizations that have a large amount of network traffic. Fast and efficient cybersecurity intrusion detection is a very challenging problem due to the big and complex nature of network traffic data. A realistic cybersecurity intrusion detection system should be able to process large sizes of network traffic data as fast as possible to detect malicious traffic as early as possible.


The Disassembler is a program that converts machine code into a low-level symbolic language that can be read by humans. The disassembler is a reverse engineering cybersecurity monitoring tool. Traditionally it was applicable only to hardware but is now also used for software as well. Disassembler, reverse engineering can be used to identify the details of a breach how the attacker entered the system, and what steps were taken to breach the system. There are different tools to work on the path of a disassembler, which are Apktool, IDA, Dex2jar, etc. are major ones.

Trained Employees

No matter the size of your organization, we can probably guess that your employees aren’t trained well enough in cybersecurity and IT security. Hackers are getting increasingly good at recreating emails and personalizing them for your employees. How can you effectively train your employees? It should come from the top down. Make security a priority in your organization.

There are different online platforms which are offering basic courses for employee training. KnowBe4 allows your organization to “phish your users” so you will know who the most phish-prone employees are and which ones should receive the most training.

AI to Prevent Malware from Executing

Many organizations think that their antivirus software is enough to keep them safe. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Antivirus isn’t enough to protect endpoints.

The underlying technology for Cybriant’s Managed EDR service is the only technology that stops over 99% of advanced threats and malware before they can execute to cause harm. It eliminates the need for legacy antivirus software, anti-exploit products, whitelisting solutions, and host-based intrusion detection and prevention systems.

Cybriant uses a “prevention-first” technology – we stop attacks before they cause harm, vs allowing attacks to happen, then clean up the mess.  By reducing the number of endpoint security products deployed on the endpoint, customers gain operational efficiencies by not having to manage signatures, policies, or deployments of additional protection.

Privileged identity management (PIM)

Privileged identity management is also a key cyber security monitoring tool. PIM is highly recommended by cybersecurity experts that these specific passwords are saved in specific software. When any hacker is trying to hack a company’s website or data then PIM deceives attackers by changing passwords immediately. Due to this confidential data is protected from stealing by attackers. PIM is also cost-effective and you can save money.

Patch Management

Patch area codes are used to update the software of your company to get the latest versions that are more effective. Responsive Patch Management solution will scan your systems, check for missing and available patches against our comprehensive vulnerability database, download and deploy missing patches and service packs, and generate reports to effectively manage the patch management process of the enterprise. Patch management is simply the practice of updating software with new pieces of code which is more effective for cyber security monitoring.

Insider Threat Detection

Insider threat detection is also the main problem to face today. In this matter, you should take care of your employees. You should detect threats from inside because some malicious users access private information and want to steal this. Some negligent users do not voluntarily expose data but due to their negligence data can be exposed to outers which companies lose protection and some private/confidential files.

Vulnerability Scanner

Performing only a single vulnerability scan each year or quarter puts organizations at risk of not uncovering new vulnerabilities. The time between each scan is all an attacker needs to compromise a network. With continuous scanning, our security experts automatically have visibility to assess where each asset is secure or exposed.

Vulnerabilities are related to dangers or risks that our networks face or in emergency conditions affected by some malware. So, for this purpose, you should examine your network to find risks and their solutions. Confidently visualizing, analyzing, and measuring your cyber risk vulnerabilities is a tool for reducing cyber risk. Identifying vulnerabilities and having a system in place to patch them will be incredibly effective cyber security monitoring tools.

Managed Services

There are so many benefits of managed security services. Here are a few ways that outsourcing the management of your security monitoring could potentially improve your business:

Compliance Made Easy – Do you have stringent compliance requirements? Most companies do. A SIEM will help you meet the security logging requirements, but don’t stop there. When you outsource the management of a SIEM, you have the expertise on hand of a team of security analysts that are watching your network around the clock.

Learn Where Attacks Come From – Insider threats are becoming more and more common. It’s vital to understand where cyber threats come from so you can understand how to alleviate them. Our MDR solution will help stop malware in its tracks when a user mistakenly clicks on a phishing link.
