Traditional endpoint security never designed to deal with advanced persistent attacks
FireEye defines digital transformation as the rapid adoption of innovative technologies that will enable organisations to be more agile and operate more efficiently. For CIOs, digital transformation is a mixed blessing: it means taking advantage of a better-connected world, but it also simultaneously creates additional risk. They are urged to rapidly adopt these new technologies but need to address cyber security needs while still meeting productivity priorities that impact the bottom line.
For hackers, digital transformation opens up a virtual playground of opportunities to disrupt our lives. A wider attack surface creates new ways for threat actors to gain access to data, finances and other assets.
Almost every regional strategic goal in both the public and private sector relies on technological adoption. Take Dubai 10X strategy, a call on all Government entities to embrace disruptive innovation as a mantra of their operations and to seek ways to incorporate its methodologies in all aspects of their work. In the private sector, you are seeing companies transform how they work, automating tasks, evolving the workspace and developing better insights, all of which have an impact on the bottom line and drive growth.
It is important to remember that, while technology removes the limits to what we can achieve, it also opens the boundaries for cyber attackers. One small attack can have grave consequences, both on bottom line and reputation. With the rapid adoption of innovative technologies, here are FireEye’s top solutions to help business stay secure and continue to grow:
Digital Threat Monitoring
This service identifies threats to your assets outside your perimeter and across the deep and dark web. It enables companies to search online black markets, social media and paste sites where hackers store and share sensitive data for signs of compromise. With digital threat monitoring, organisations have the opportunity to identify attacks before they happen.
FireEye Helix is a cloud-hosted security operations platform that allows organisations to take control of any incident from alert to fix. Almost daily, new threats expose companies’ vulnerabilities, forcing them to purchase more products and hire more talent. Such reactive approaches lead to escalating complexity, yet another vulnerability an attacker can take advantage of. This means that security operations — big or small — require a holistic, foundational approach. FireEye Helix helps organisations build that foundation.
Traditional endpoint security is not effective against modern threats; it was never designed to deal with sophisticated or advanced persistent threat attacks. To keep endpoints safe, a solution must quickly analyse and respond to such threats. FireEye Endpoint Security combines the best of legacy security products, enhanced with FireEye technology, expertise and intelligence to defend against today’s cyber attackers.
As we mentioned earlier, hackers are evolving with adoption of new technologies. In this situation, it is important for organisations to identify gaps in security effectiveness due to equipment misconfiguration, evolving attacker tactics and changes in the IT environment. By adopting this solution, organisations can easily pull evidence needed to measure, manage, and improve their cybersecurity effectiveness.
