Malicious and negligent insiders pose the most dangerous threat to organizations of any size and any industry. With privileged access and malicious intent, insiders can exfiltrate critical data with ease, and slip underneath most detection engines because they don’t have to penetrate the perimeter layers of security already in place.
Accountable for a substantial number of major data breaches every year, insider behavior is often difficult to track, even within highly sophisticated security operations centers. Endpoints including laptops and servers are the weakest and least-secured, therefore security professionals need the right technology to stop insiders in their tracks before they steal valuable data or do harm to the company.
CounterTack provides an easy way for teams to monitor malicious insiders to understand first and foremost, what information, and which systems are at risk, with dynamic data analytics delivering the most accurate intelligence in real-time. Most importantly, companies need to keep malicious insiders out and prevent the damage they can cause.
The Endpoint Threat Platform helps users gain an analytics-driven view into detecting malicious insider behavior quickly and accurately to determine: where insiders are moving laterally and whether they are infecting systems; if suspect employees have privileged access to IP, and if data is being exfiltrating to external servers/locations; evidence of historical evasion and real-time awareness so incidents do not escalate to full-blown data breaches.
CounterTack’s Endpoint Threat Platform is the ideal solution for preventing an insider attack. With a number of detection methods, CounterTack can analyze more data in more distributed locations, more quickly than other solutions. The platform adapts to fit enterprise needs for scale and breadth, or via a managed service, for enterprise or SMBs.
ThreatScan PRO from CounterTack is another part of the solution for companies who want to quickly run a scan of their endpoint environment to see what types of infections might be caused by insider-led infiltration. ThreatScan PRO will determine what type of malware was discovered and the potential impact it might have if its not remediated.
Because you cannot prevent every threat, the continuous monitoring of endpoint threats helps teams better understand how attacks are essentially impacting endpoints. Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technology, combined with other robust endpoint features from CounterTack, enables organizations to determine what behaviors are impacting systems in real-time, and how to respond to those deemed malicious.
Real-time Data Correlation
There is no single platform that can just simply prevent any incident from occurring. Most prevention technology is subject to failure at some point, most likely when an unknown threat occurs. This forcing function places security teams in the position where they need more intelligent data presented to them by security products, especially endpoints where there is a substantial amount of system-level data to sift through.
Context for Decision-Making
CounterTack’s behavioral analysis maps directly into the continuous monitoring use case for today’s organizations. What powers CounterTack’s unique ability to go far beyond signature-based detection is how the deployed sensors analyze every state change of the endpoint, and every cause and effect of what its seeing. By contrast, a signature looks for a minimal number of static indicators to provide a “malicious” or “not malicious” determination, which doesn’t help. CounterTack has the only true behavioral engine that provides a full spectrum view of the behaviors observed so auto-remediation can kick off in real-time, or so the analyst can make that determination.
Incident Response is arguably the most critical component of the IT Security workflow because it connects detection with response according to how severe security incidents might be. If Incident Response isn’t prioritized, or isn’t staging the same level of aggressiveness against attackers in a proactive and measured approach, one incident can escalate into a major data breach quickly.
Behaviors Are the Best Indicators
CounterTack delivers a unique set of behaviorally based detection and preventative controls so security teams optimize their containment and eradication workflow, reducing incident response time. CounterTack’s Endpoint Threat Platform processes threat data detected across thousands of systems to quickly visualize incident severity. This is the true benefit of Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) functionality, that extends well beyond the static yes or no answer that antivirus provides.
Endpoint Security Within the Incident Response Lifecycle
Technology doesn’t do any good for responders who are deciphering alerts from an unmanageable number of data sources to make quick decisions on prioritizing threats. CounterTack’s portfolio of products and services are purpose-built to cut down the time from detection to remediation, and to aid the IR process so teams focus on the threats that matter.
CounterTack’s Endpoint Threat Platform is the ideal solution for preventing an insider attack, and is tailor-made for efficient Incident Response. With a number of detection methods, CounterTack can analyze more data in more distributed locations, more quickly than other solutions. The platform adapts to fit enterprise needs for scale and breadth, or via a managed service, for enterprise or SMBs.
Responder PRO is an essential part of the Incident Response workflow with the ability to reverse engineer the entire memory of a single endpoint. Responder is used by over 200 companies globally as the best deep investigation, endpoint forensics tool on the market.
ThreatScan PRO from CounterTack is an easy solution for companies who want to quickly run a scan of their endpoint environment to see what types of infections might be caused by insider-led infiltration, or to quickly scan endpoints based on incidents occuring. ThreatScan PRO will determine what type of malware was discovered and the potential impact it might have if its not remediated.
