With some of the most experienced security experts in the nation, we enable organizations of all sizes to accurately visualize their networks with in-depth behavioral analytics to determine potential areas of network vulnerabilities that will interfere with business continuity

Cytellix (cytellix.com), the cybersecurity division of Information Management Resources, Inc. (IMRI), today announces that because of its cybersecurity expertise and proactive continuous monitoring, it can detect potential threats caused by “Meltdown” and “Spectre,” that affect most computing platforms using Intel, ARM, and AMD processors. The service can identify unusual behavior of any connected digital asset or service that may have been targeted for exfiltrating data, enabling companies to make corrections before data is extracted through the exploitation of a flaw. “We provide a best of breed solution that would have seen the bad actor connections in real-time and would have alerted the abnormal activity on all devices and IPs connecting to these bad actors,” said, Brian Berger, Cytellix executive vice president of commercial cybersecurity. “With some of the most experienced security experts in the nation, we enable organizations of all sizes to accurately visualize their networks with in-depth behavioral analytics to determine potential areas of network vulnerabilities that will interfere with business continuity.”

The Cytellix solution includes vulnerability identification and cyber real-time situational awareness monitoring of the network. The managed services includes a complete cyber assessment, network vulnerability scanning, gap analysis, system security plan, plan of action and milestones, situational awareness monitoring, remediation best practices, and security policy templates. All connected known and unknown IP addresses are identified, profiled and mapped. The system provides real-time awareness of IP behavior’s, leak detection, netflow capabilities and real-time alerting of changes in behavior. Inventory and device metadata is also collected on all IPs on the network, which can identify the operating system, properties and connections to determine where an organization needs to update known vulnerabilities before a cyber event occurs.

Cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated and damaging, and these potentially crippling assaults are premeditated, deliberate, and coordinated. When a device manufacturer such as a network switch, firewall, or router is identified as “end of life,” then it either has a technological market disadvantage or a technical flaw that renders the device vulnerable in certain situations. Software patches are similar in respect, but are much more frequent and are typically called security updates or security bulletins. Many of the updates are categorized as critical, important, or moderate, and identify the issue as either part of the native vendor products or vulnerabilities in third party applications used by the native applications that can compromise the OEM publisher’s products. Once a flaw is known, the hacker communities also then know and start targeting their attacks to enter an organization through the identified vulnerabilities.

The issue of deployment of patches or updates by companies is the biggest concern given the public awareness of these broad based cyber/malware attacks. Recently, the attacks have been based upon the gaps in the “patching” of software. These organized communities develop their attacks to automatically detect and exploit unpatched software or systems that are not updated with the current software as the bases for the attack and entrance to a company.

Cytellix offers small and medium-sized businesses its best-in-class solutions and services, from comprehensive cyber gap analysis and vulnerability assessments to real-time network scanning technology that provides continuous monitoring, threat detection and remediation best practices as a turn-key subscription that is a huge value at an affordable cost.

“Companies have a lot at stake and cyber attackers are looking for every opportunity to pounce. Only by being proactive with their security defenses can companies minimize their risk of being breached,“ added Berger.
