How to Provide Remote Incident Response During the Coronavirus Times

How to Provide Remote Incident Response During the Coronavirus Times

March 24, 2020The Hacker News
While the Coronavirus pandemic continues to strike chaos across the global economies, threat actors keep on launching cyberattacks on organizations from all sizes and verticals. IR providers face a unique challenge when approached by these organizations since, due to the Coronavirus mass quarantine, conducting incident response engagements by arriving physically to the customers' offices is impossible. Cynet 360, a tool of choice for a number of IR providers (offered to IR providers for free), enables responders to compensate on the lack of physical access with the ability to conduct a full IR operation remotely ( learn more here ) by seamless and rapid remote deployment, complete visibility into the attacked organization's environment, automated threat detection, and integrated MDR services. Attackers always seek easy opportunities, and it's no wonder many threat actors take advantage of the current mayhem of the Coronavirus pandemic to increase their attacks'
How MSPs can become Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Providers

How MSPs can become Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Providers

October 29, 2019The Hacker News
Managed detection and response (MDR) is one of the fastest-growing segments in the cybersecurity market. ESG research from April 2019 reveals that 27% of organizations are actively pursuing an MDR project, while another 11% plan to pursue an MDR project in the future. Cynet now enables service providers to add MDR to their portfolio and gain an important competitive advantage over competitors with Cynet 360 integrated offering of breach protection platform and CyOps 24\7 SOC team ( Learn more here ). MDR is a relatively new security service offering that emerged in recent years to assist the standard organization with a team of experts that provide 24\7 alert prioritization, investigation, and proactive threat hunting — tasks that are typically beyond its in-house capabilities. Cynet 360's complete coverage across endpoints, network, and user accounts makes it a tool of choice that provides MDR providers with real-time threat coverage across the entire environment with a

Report to Your Management with the Definitive 'Incident Response for Management' Presentation Template

Security incidents occur. It's not a matter of 'if' but of 'when.' There are security products and procedures that were implemented to optimize the IR process, so from the 'security-professional' angle, things are taken care of. However, many security pros who are doing an excellent job in handling incidents find effectively communicating the ongoing process with their management a much more challenging task. It's a little surprise — managements are typically not security savvy and don't really care about the bits and bytes in which the security pro masters. Cynet addresses this gap with the IR Reporting for Management PPT template , providing CISOs and CIOs with a clear and intuitive tool to report both the ongoing IR process and its conclusion. The IR for Management template enables CISOs and CIOs to communicate with the two key points that management cares about—assurance that the incident is under control and a clear understanding of imp

The Incident Response (IR) services market is in accelerated growth due to the rise in cyberattacks that result in breaches. More and more organizations, across all sizes and verticals, choose to outsource IR to 3rd party service providers over handling security incidents in-house. Cynet is now launching a first-of-its-kind offering, enabling any Managed Security Provider (MSP) or Security Integrator (SI) to add Incident Response to its services portfolio, without building an in-house team of incident responders, by using Cynet's IR team and technology at no cost. Managed Service providers interested to add Incident Response to their service portfolio with no investment in people or technology can apply here . As cyber threats grow in sophistication and volume, there is an increasing number of cases in which attackers succeed in compromising the environments they target. This, in turn, fuels a rapidly growing demand for IR technologies and services. Since in most cases t

The saying that there are two types of organizations, those that have gotten breached and those who have but just don't know it yet, has never been more relevant, making the sound incident response a required capability in any organization's security stack. To assist in this critical mission, Cynet is launching a free IR tool offering, applicable to both IR service providers in need of a powerful, free incident response platform , and to organizations that either suspect security incidents and want to get immediate visibility into what happened, or that know they have a breach and need to respond immediately.

Cynet Review: Simplify Security with a True Security Platform

In 1999, Bruce Schneier wrote, "Complexity is the worst enemy of security." That was 19 years ago (!) and since then, cyber security has only become more complex. Today, controls dramatically outnumber staff available to support them. The Bank of America has a $400-million cyber budget to hire security staff and implement a broad array of products. But what if your budget and sophistication is just a tiny fraction of the Bank of America's? The remaining 99% of organizations understand that they don't have sufficient protection for their internal network, but they also realize that to be sufficiently secured they need to buy multiple solutions and hire a large team to maintain it – which isn't an option. So they either stay with just an AV or buy a point solution to defend a specific part of their internal environment from particular types of attacks – only to later find out it doesn't meet what they really need. Cynet wants to change all that.

As vast volumes of digital data are created, consumed and shared by companies, customers, employees, patients, financial institutions, governments and so many other bodies, information protection becomes a growing risk for everyone. Who wants to see personal customer purchasing data flying into the hands of strangers? What company can tolerate the pilfering of its intellectual property by competitors? What government can stand idly by while its military secrets are made public? To protect their valuable and private information, organizations purchase numerous cyber security systems – like intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and anti-virus software – and deploy them across their networks and on all their computers. In fact, a typical bank, manufacturer or government department might have dozens of such products operating at all times. Cyber security systems work non-stop to thwart network infiltration and data-theft. Whenever they notice an activity that seems outside the sc
