Charles Leaver Ziften CEO Presents A Post By CTO David Shefter
If you are an organization with 5000 or more employees, it is likely that your IT Security and Operations groups are overwhelmed with the degree of data they need to sift through for just a small percentage of visibility about what their users are doing on a recurring basis. Antivirus suites have been installed and they have actually shut off USB ports and even enforced user access restrictions, but the risk of cyber attacks and malware problems still remains. What action do you take?
Up to 72% of advance malware and cyber criminal invasions take place in the endpoint environment, so says a Verizon Data Breach Report. Your business needs to ask itself how essential its reputation is first. If you take Target as an example, it cost them over $ 6 Billion in market cap loss because of a malware attack. Sadly the modern world positions us constantly under attack from unhappy or rogue staff members, anarchists and other cyber bad guys. This circumstance is only likely worsen.
Your network is secured by a firewall program etc but you are not able to see what is occurring past the network switch port. The only real method to resolve this threat is by implementing a solution that works well with and compliments existing network based solutions that are in place. Ziften (which is Dutch for “To Sift”) can provide this solution which offers “Open Visibility” with a lightweight technique. You need to manage the whole environment which includes servers, the network, desktops etc. However you do not wish to add extra overheads and tension on your network. A significant Ziften commitment is that the solution will not have a negative influence on your environment, however it will offer a deeply impactful visibility and security solution.
The groundbreaking software application from Ziften completely understands machine behavior and abnormalities, allowing analysts to zoom in on sophisticated hazards faster to lower dwell time to a minimum. Ziften’s solution will continuously monitor activity at the endpoint, resource consumption, IP connections, user interactions and so on. With the Ziften solution your organization will be able to determine faster the root cause of any intrusion and fix the problem.
It is a lightweight solution that is not kernel or driver based, minimal memory use, there is little to no overhead at the system level and almost zero network traffic.
For driver and kernel based solutions there are extreme accreditation requirements that can take longer than 9 months. By the time the new software application is developed and baked, the OS could be at the next version of release. This is a time consuming, non-supportable and troublesome process.
The Ziften approach is a genuine differentiator in the marketplace. The application of a really light weight and non invasive agent and also executing this as a system service, it conquers the stresses that the majority of brand-new software solutions introduce at the endpoint. Ease of application leads to faster times to market, easy support, scalability, and simple solutions that do not restrain the user environment.
To sum up, with the existing level of cyber threats and the dangers of a cyber attack increasing daily that can significantly taint your reputation, you have to implement constant monitoring of all your endpoint gadgets 24/7 to make sure that you have clear visibility of any endpoint security dangers, gaps, or instabilities and Ziften can deliver this to you.
