We’d love to tell you ‘it will never happen to you’ but we can’t. No one can. In order to prevent security threats such as ransomware, malware, viruses, employee error (or even malicious employee activity) you need to adopt a holistic and continuous approach to your overall IT security & protection. This means putting proactive measures in place to protect your network, all end-points, mobile devices, virtual servers and cloud data.
Before: To steel yourself from attacks, preparations are put in place to ‘control, enforce & harden’. This means having insight into your complete infrastructure and understanding all your vulnerabilities – including your employees themselves. If you have a comprehensive awareness and visibility of what’s on your extended network CareWorx will implement policies and controls to help you defend it by putting the right proactive monitoring & management tools in place.
During: The ability to continuously detect threats and block them is critical. But as attacks become more personalized and sophisticated, invariably, (often due to end-user error or ignorance) they get through. This is when the ability to respond instantly and contain the offensive is critical. Education, automation and internal policy decisions can limit any damage. With real-time insight, CareWorx’ security professionals can employ intelligent automation to help detect, block and continue to defend.
After: Defenders need retrospective security in order to marginalize the impact of an attack. They must identify the point of entry, determine the scope, contain the threat, eliminate the risk of re-infection, and remediate the disruption.
