Have you been Hacked, Would you even know?

Learn lessons from cyber-attacks to better secure your business

Businesses are facing well prepared and treacherous attackers, including nation states and cyber-criminals that are strong-minded and determined to breach your cyber defences. Attacks are on the rise and, with the random nature by which IT networks are infiltrated, it’s becoming an ill-fated inevitability that we will all suffer from an attack at some point, regardless of whether we have been unambiguously targeted or not.

We shouldn’t have to sit back and suffer… with the dangerous rate of attacks taking place, why should we not learn lessons from what’s happened and use those lessons to better improve our defences for next time?


Acclimatise & better defend yourself with Endpoint Detection & Response

With an Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) service, you’re not only actively alerted to attacks taking place but benefit from intelligent insights that break-down the steps involved to spot patterns & stop the identical attack from taking place again.

All trustworthy security vendors that supply & support EDR services will permit their customers access to the global intelligence and remedial protection insights gained globally from deployments of their software across each endpoint device.


What can we do with the insights?

EDR supports targeted attack analytics, which is a holistic approach to attack detection. Making advanced AI and expert threat research available to any organisation that’s a customer of the EDR product.

With the power of EDR, your outsourced IT partner or internal IT personnel, can be the step-ahead in protecting your business with security awareness otherwise unavailable to them.

There is no longer the need to manually correlate scans of your devices, with limited intelligence gained from only your own network. This fragmented approach results in visibility gaps, too many false positives, longer threat dwell times and less precise detection.


How does EDR work?

EDR collects event data across multiple termination points, as well as end user computers, servers, email and cloud applications, providing a holistic view across the business and a global view based on telemetry from thousands of enterprises.

The security vendor employs data scientists that create diagnostic applications, which employ the latest artificial intelligence and advanced machine learning techniques to detect doubtful activity. This activity is investigated by their own attack investigation teams, who’s role it is to determine actual attack patterns occurring in your environment and feedback critical updates to your console in real time, with details of the attack actor, the devices impacted by the attack and advice on remedial actions to take to repair & protect further exposure.
