What are the major cybersecurity challenges faced by the global industries?
The lack of knowledge and expertise in handling cybersecurity is a major issue. Most organizations assume that firewalls and antivirus are sufficient enough to protect their data. This ideology is detrimental at a time when even sophisticated preventative systems are getting bypassed. With malware variants growing at alarming rates and fileless attacks representing nearly half of the current cyberattacks, prevention alone is failing. Any solution that focuses on just prevention leaves a gap in terms of detection and response. Once any threat is past their preventive controls, organizations that do not have the ability to detect, face tremendous difficulties with respect to compliance and business continuity.
How does Idealstor play a role to resolve cybersecurity issues?
We help businesses secure their data by focusing on the endpoint. We’re able to detect and remediate advanced cyber-threats, in real-time, so organizations can avoid the consequences of data-breaches.
Idealstor’s services are provided in two models:
1. We manage the entire solution for businesses that do not have a security team in place or lack resources. With this model the customers get some of the finest security analysts working on their behalf without the burden of managing the security on their endpoints.
2. Customers that have the necessary resources to manage their endpoints can license our platform and have Idealstor assist them when required. Under this model we become an extension of their team to protect them from today’s most sophisticated threats.
Idealstor’s comprehensive platform offers both pre and post-infection capabilities, providing organizations with the first and last line of defense even against the most advanced unknown threats. With kernel-level visibility we are able to prevent the consequences of data tampering or a data breach.
Outside of leveraging the first and only platform that protects endpoints at the kernel-level, we alleviate the burden that comes with such precise visibility, all while using minimal system resources with our lightweight agent. Our multi-layered approach eliminates the security gaps that cyber-criminals have learned to leverage in security-breaches.
With the average cost of a security-breach rising, and with threat-actors indiscriminately seeking vulnerabilities, we believe every organization should be able to secure their endpoints against the most sophisticated cyberattacks, regardless of their size or revenue
With our solution there is no need for businesses to patch various endpoint security products, agents, management consoles, and chase down alerts to protect their endpoints. Idealstor’s security analysts can defend against advanced unknown threats and perform the necessary prevention, detection, containment, investigation, and remediation tasks all in a single platform.
The reality is simple: staying ahead of cybercriminals is imperative for business continuity. Idealstor Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a budget-friendly investment that can make all the difference in the long run. With the average cost of a security-breach rising, and with threat-actors indiscriminately seeking vulnerabilities, we believe every organization should be able to secure their endpoints against the most sophisticated cyberattacks, regardless of their size or revenue.
Where does Idealstor see its customer traction?
Organizations that are either invested in endpoint protection platforms that can leave them blind to advanced threats, or companies that have endpoint detection and response capabilities but are burdened with too many alerts.
To this end, our goal is to provide clients a comprehensive security solution that is not a burden on them or their security team. We continue to deliver multi-layered endpoint protection with embedded automation capabilities to simplify the management burden for all of our clients.
Could you give a case study to highlight the benefits brought by your cybersecurity solutions and services?
One of our clients, a global company with 1000+ endpoints had three security agents: a next generation anti-virus, an endpoint detection and response platform, and an anti-virus solution. After installing Idealstor’s endpoint security platform, they discovered that five percent of their critical endpoints (some in the manufacturing plant) were infected with advanced malware. Some agents had failed to detect that malware. Others had failed to raise the alert severity level because of all the alert clutter within their management console. None of the existing agents delivered real-time protection, during or after the infection. Our platform addressed the malware threat in real-time and provided telemetry in an actionable manner. The client is now in the process of phasing out some of those “ineffective” agents.
