Promisec helps secure many of the global brands you recognize and trust by helping them address the following use cases:
Incident Detection and Response
The threats to your critical business data are proliferating at astounding rates. From advanced persistent threats (APTs), to sophisticated phishing attacks and attempts to breach the perimeter of the network, cyber attackers are always looking for new ways to attack you and your users. Detecting and preventing these malware attacks before the incident happens is the best way to effectively safeguard your information, brand and organization.
Are you ready for a security audit? Virtually every development security regulation, standard or best practice mandates that organizations must take control of their endpoints, regardless of whether those assets are servers, workstations, laptops, tablets or other devices. PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, ISO 27001, COBIT and SOX standards all state that enterprises must have a fully complete, accurate and up-to-date inventory of end points, as well as constantly maintaining control of their programs, devices and data.
Shadow IT Discovery
What is on your network? Knowledge of your organization’s IT assets extends far beyond the physical network. From rogue applications initiated by users, to personal removable media and devices that are not supported by IT, there are many ways for your critical business data to be jeopardized by technologies which are invisible to your security teams, and which have never been evaluated or approved – and they’re inside your corporate firewall, right now.
Software License and Asset Monitoring
Do you trust your users to accurately use their licensed software? According to the Business Software Alliance (BSA), 43% of software installed on personal devices around the world – including servers, workstations, laptops and tablets at organizations of all sizes – is not correctly licensed. Incorrectly licensed software can have significant implications for an enterprise, not only in terms of potential fines and penalties if the issue is discovered but also in terms of information security.
Who are your privileged users? According to a major industry analyst firm, over 78% of organizations have systems that contain permissions greater than what is needed for employees to do their job. User identities – the accounts and credentials employees use to access critical business data – with greater than necessary privileges and permissions are the gateway to insider security threats. Defunct users which remain active represent a critical foothold which external attackers and malware can use to compromise systems, services and data.
Endpoint Vulnerability Detection
Detecting and alleviating known vulnerabilities on servers, workstations and other endpoints is one of the most critical aspects of reducing the attack surface which a malicious cyber actor can use to gain access to your network. Finding vulnerabilities before they are exploited goes beyond simply scanning for services that are exposed to the network. Successful vulnerability detection also necessitates thorough inspection of end points to verify that they are configured securely and correctly.
