You Don’t Have to be in the Fortune 500 to Successfully Defend Against Advanced Attacks
Defending your endpoints is complicated and expensive and often leaves comprehensive endpoint security for companies with the biggest security budgets. We’re not ok with that – because every organization is a target.
Defending your endpoints is complicated
For most organizations, a strong endpoint security posture requires the visibility to see activity across your organization, a way to prevent attacks, detection of a wide spectrum of threats, and finally the ability to take action and respond to those threats.
Visibility includes understanding your assets, the value they hold, what is happening on them, and how they are threatened by attackers. That visibility is so much more than raw data – it needs to include the key performance indicators about your security posture and how you are improving over time.
Prevention is a powerful part of any security posture that should stop a majority of threats in their tracks before they can even execute. Whether traditional antivirus, newer machine learning based solutions such as Cylance, or a full whitelisting solution like Bit9, prevention is an important first line of defense against attacks.
Detection is where it gets most interesting for me because threats that have landed on your endpoints can take so many different forms. At Red Canary, our approach is to layer Behavioral Analysis, Analytics, Binary Analysis, and Threat Intelligence together to detect threats in a multitude of ways.
Response to threats can take many forms. For some organizations, a simple re-image is enough to kill the threat and move on. For others, especially those handling HIPAA or PCI protected data, a more thorough incident response is required. In any case, the ability to surgically respond to and stop a threat in it’s tracks by quarantining an endpoint, killing a process, or deleting a file is essential.
It’s no surprise that bringing together these multiple layers of endpoint security is complicated and takes precious resources. The identification, evaluation, integration, and then management of these products and services can easily keep a security team busy full time and gets expensive very quickly.
All of this comes at a time when many executive teams still struggle to understand why you need more budget – and you struggle to determine which purchase you make will have the largest impact. You often have to balance products, services, and staff when improving your defenses.
What makes this battle even more challenging is that the attacker’s sole purpose is to breach your organization – and your organization’s purpose is to provide excellent medical care. Or to design the next important pharmaceutical. Or to provide higher education to others. That balance is tilted in the attacker’s favor.
