Not all attacks are obvious. In fact, in cases of data breaches and information theft involving passwords, credit card data, and social security numbers it takes most organizations 6 months to detect a breach. This includes companies like Equifax, Capital One, and Facebook. Ransomware attacks alone cost an average of 9.6 days of downtime, and a loss of 8% of data, and cost victims an average of $36,295 in ransom payments.
The reason attacks are so hard to detect is that the threat matrix is constantly evolving, and monitoring solutions generate so much logged activity, it’s difficult to pick out bad actors from normal activity. We implement state-of-the-art monitoring from Cisco, Meraki, Palo Alto and HPE coupled with AI powered intelligent alerting software such as Arctic Wolf and Fireeye that can sift through the white noise and surface threats quickly so that you can take action to stop and mitigate attacks.
