This is the first in a series of posts that will aim to provide some initial guidance on the fundamentals of cyber security.
Here we start with what we feel is the most overlooked aspect of any security activity, especially in smaller organisations; Identifying and Assessing the Risks.
Email has been the biggest vector used in cyber-attacks for many years, with over 95% of attacks delivered using email. Which is why continuing with the basic security measures provided by email clients and services, is not enough to prevent today's modern emails attacks.
Driven by Cloud-based intelligence and management, Cisco Secure Endpoint delivers complete protection against advanced threats, for PC’s, Laptops, and mobile devices. Secure Endpoint works to detect and prevent malware as it enters the network, even those that evade your first line of defences.
Unlike traditional endpoint protection solutions, Secure Endpoint doesn’t stop when it’s completed the initial inspection of the file. Once the file reaches the endpoint, Secure Endpoint uses continuous analysis and recording to keep track of the file, and understand the files behaviour over time. This continuous analysis happens regardless of how Secure Endpoint has categorised the file (whether good, bad or unknown). This way, if a previously known good file starts to exhibit bad behaviour, Secure Endpoint can detect this immediately and quarantine this file on all your organisations endpoints.
Secure Endpoint is a Cloud delivered software-as-a-service (SaaS) endpoint security platform, providing simple integration into your business. For a standard setup there is no hardware to deploy, so AMP can deliver effective security in no time.
For complete endpoint protection Secure Endpoint rapidly detects, contains, blocks and remediates advanced malware and threats across all the companies endpoints in real-time.
Secure Endpoint gives you the depth of visibility needed to recognise threats in file based and fileless activity, and respond quickly to a potential compromise.
Cisco’s Talos group is a world leading threat intelligence unit that feeds the richest set of threat information into Cisco’s Security products. Talos analyses terabytes of data and millions of malware samples every day. With 250+ members, the Talos organisation is one of the largest groups in the world, providing its customers with best visibility into global threats. Performing more than 20 Billion blocks per day, Talos can push real world block data to their customers on average in 2-5 mins.
With the integration of Threat Grid and its advanced sandboxing technology, analysing advanced malware with Secure Endpoint couldn’t be easier. Secure Endpoint forwards suspicious files or malware samples to Threat Grid for static and dynamic analysis, and using over 1000 built in behavioural indicators, it determines if the sample is malicious or not, all in a safe and controlled environment.
Cisco Secure Endpoint has a broad range of coverage when it comes to the devices that can be protected. Whether you have Windows PC’s & laptops, Apple Mac devices, Windows or Linux Servers, or Android Mobile devices, Secure Endpoint can deliver its advanced endpoint security to all.
With the Cisco Security Connector the power of Secure Endpoint is now available for Apple iOS mobile devices. Cisco Security Connector includes both Cisco Secure Endpoint and Cisco Umbrella, and is currently deployed and managed through a mobile device management solution such as Cisco Meraki Systems Manager.
A common trend with Cisco’s Security portfolio is the ability for their products to fully integrate with each other, and Secure Endpoint is no exception. With Secure Endpoint integrated deployments being available for the endpoint, network, web and email, all of these Cisco products can work together to ensure that the organisation is secure. If one product detects malicious activity the others can be informed to enforce network wide security.
