“In many ways, smaller businesses today are an even more appealing target to cyber criminals than large enterprise networks. There are more of them and there is often less awareness of the threat, little to no technical staff with a security background, and certainly less budget to invest
Haifa, Israel (PRWEB) September 14, 2017
CYBONET, an international information security solutions provider headquartered in Israel, has announced the release of its newest cyber security solution, Cybowall, a threat detection and response platform engineered for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Combining both affordability and functionality, Cybowall provides organizations with a single security tool that delivers those capabilities necessary to identify and respond not only to active threats, but also to potential vulnerabilities within the network.
"As smaller businesses struggle to keep up with the emerging threats inundating networks around the world, it is becoming increasingly clear how ill prepared many organizations continue to be," says CYBONET CEO David Feldman. “In many ways, smaller businesses today are an even more appealing target to cyber criminals than large enterprise networks. There are more of them and there is often less awareness of the threat, little to no technical staff with a security background, and certainly less budget to invest in security technologies.”
Smaller organizations are often at pains to justify security oriented IT spending, as technology managers struggle to quantify the ROI and clearly communicate the threat landscape to business owners. A recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute of small and medium-sized enterprises found that with the increase in malware attacks, only 13% of the respondents said they felt prepared to prevent a malware attack, and a staggering 51% of the respondents claimed to have already experienced a ransomware attack - though many of these organizations had not reported it for fear of damaging their reputation.
Cybowall is a non-intrusive, agentless solution that provides complete and continuous monitoring of an SME's network across all protocols and extending to all endpoints. The solution ensures full network visibility and protects networks in real time by detecting and reacting to threats as they arise. Cybowall enables organizations to quickly detect potential vulnerabilities and active breaches; automatically respond to threats as they are discovered; manage and report on compliance (GDPR, PCI-DSS, ISO and other standards); and record and analyze all events and incidents within the network for further investigation.
Cybowall empowers smaller organizations by combining multiple cybersecurity tools in one affordable solution. The solution utilizes a multi-vector approach and correlates network and end user data from multiple sources to provide insight into endpoint tampering and malware.
Cybowall leverages network and endpoint detection of Advanced Persistent Threats and deploys network trap decoy technology to identify malicious lateral movement and trap attackers that have breached perimeter defenses. In addition, integrated asset mapping, vulnerability assessment, threat detection and event correlation provide a holistic view of an organization’s security posture and critical system configuration, facilitating relevant responses such as patch management prioritization.
David Feldman concludes: "The Cybowall multi-vector threat detection and response solution empowers organizations to meet today’s cyber security challenges. It reflects the need for an affordable, integrated solution with a single pane of glass view to help SMEs identify and mitigate information security breaches and protect their valuable data and business as a whole.”
