Breach Defense

Prevent. Detect. Respond.

Advanced malware can evade even the best frontline defenses. Antivirus, firewalls, and intrusion prevention systems help block data breaches, but they will never detect 100 percent of all the threats. Organizations need to be ready to respond with technology that can quickly detect, contain, and remediate malware that eluded the frontline defenses.

Slower response = higher risk


66% of breaches take months or even years to discover.


60% of breaches have data exfiltrated in the first 24 hours.


33% of organizations discover breaches through their own monitoring.

Compromise assessment vs. threat hunting

Proactive threat hunting and compromise assessments are becoming increasingly popular, but it is important to understand the differences in their scope and depth.

The last line of defense: endpoints

Data resides in the endpoints. Where your data goes, is your perimeter. So you had better protect your edge.
