Your business runs on software
Almost all cyberattacks will use software or vulnerabilities in software already running in your organization. Here is how you can safeguard your business against most attacks.
Through 2020, 99% of vulnerabilities exploited will continue to be the ones known by security and IT professionals for at least one year.
React to threats and attacks fast
Cyberattacks are not only getting more destructive but are also spreading faster than ever before. Security systems will generally identify an attack but operational systems can take days to react, which is simply too slow. Every organization must be able to hunt and remediate security issues in seconds to maintain a good security posture.
Most operational systems are simply too slow and disruptive
Their architecture is decades old and often relies on scripts to hunt or remediate. During an attack, there is a need for constant interaction with all endpoints and this requires very fast or real-time speed. While some solutions claim fast speeds they cause network and client disruption and cannot be used in practice.
1E’s Tachyon supports modern organizations with very large numbers of highly distributed endpoints
Tachyon enables real-time control of millions of endpoints as its architecture is extremely efficient, uniquely requiring only one network packet for most instructions. This also means every operator can hunt or remediate issues all day without disruption.
Know what software is running
If you don’t know what software is running in your business then how do you know which software is stealing your information, damaging your organization or is simply vulnerable to a cyberattack?
The number of unique executable can be in excess of 1 million
It’s extremely difficult to identify and manage them individually. Even the packages which were used to install them could be in excess of a quarter of a million. These need to be normalized down to the 2000 applications being used in the organization, which is finally a manageable quantity. Manually doing this is almost impossible, hence most businesses do not do this and cannot tell you what software they are running.
1E’s AppClarity solution gives you
complete visibility over what you have
We normalize 1 million+ executable and 200k software packages down to 2000 unique pieces of software which your business really cares about. Once you know what you need, you can stop everything else. You also get to know what and why you are paying for your software.
Keep your software up to date
Vulnerabilities are being found in almost all software every day. Most reputable software vendors react fast and patch their software. Every business is responsible for keeping the software they are running up to date, if they don’t they will be hacked as all the bad guys know how to exploit those vulnerabilities.
Most businesses are running software which is many years old and vulnerable
The challenge is a lack of visibility (as above) and the manual effort required up keep up to date. Take, for example, the fact a Windows 10 upgrade can take 2-4 hours per PC and needs to be repeated for every PC in your estate. The original Windows 10 is already 3 years old and most organizations have not completed their migration to it.
1E’s Windows Servicing Suite automates Windows and application deployment and migration
Users can self serve Windows or applications wherever they are, home, coffee shop or office. They can also use this technology to rebuild their machines if they are not working properly or even
replace their PCs. Applications are automatically kept up to date.The IT team do not have to perform a single task at the
workstation, saving time, costs and empowering the user.
Would you let lots of strangers in your office?
If you did, how would you stop them from stealing or damaging your assets? The logical step (taken by any organization) is to identify everyone allowed in and to not admit strangers without proper protocol. Why don’t we do this with software given that it can steal and damage our digital business assets in the same way unknown and unvetted persons can?
The importance of migrating to secure Windows 10
Many organizations are migrating to Windows 10, but due to a lack of automation are making do without many of the new security Windows 10 security features. These security features, if enabled, are significant enhancements and would prevent future cyberattacks.
Integration is essential for success
Tachyon and WSS integrate fully with your Service Desk so business processes can be used to effectively stop malware and even perform complex tasks like Endpoint Disaster Recovery. Imagine being able to rebuild a thousand PCs in a couple of hours.
