EDR/XDR

Advanced attacks can compromise endpoints in seconds. Legacy endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools simply can’t keep pace. Learn how shifting your EDR strategy to enable:

  • Proactive risk mitigation
  • Efficient, real-time incident response
  • Forensic investigation help
  • Optimized security operations
  • Business continuity

Extended detection and response (XDR) is a natural extension of the endpoint detection and response (EDR) concept, in which behaviors that occur after threat prevention controls act are further inspected for potentially malicious, suspicious, or risky activity that warrant mitigation. The difference is simply the location (endpoint or beyond) where the behaviors occur.

XDR solutions are increasingly popular as organizations recognize the inefficiencies, and in many cases ineffectiveness, of security infrastructures comprised of many individual “best-of-breed” security products deployed from different vendors over time. Common challenges arising from this point-product approach include:

Gaps in security: with each product operating in its own silo, opportunities often arise for cyberattacks to enter in between

Too much security information: with each product generating individual alerts and other information, security teams can easily miss indicators of cyberattacks

Uncoordinated response: with each product operating independently, it falls on the human operator to share information and coordinate response actions

Based on these experiences, many organizations are looking to consolidate security vendors and products in favor of integrated solution sets.

Web and Email Isolation

Web isolation solution isolates browsing activity away from end user’s devices and onto remote, cloud servers that they operate. This server is completely separate from the user’s endpoint and business networks, meaning they are fully protected from any threats the user may come across in a browsing session.

Getting users to click on a malicious link embedded in an email is a tried-and-true tactic used by cybercriminals to gain access to critical business systems. Yet, traditional security solutions fail to identify, much less block, email-based attacks.

Rather than determining which links in an email are legitimate and which are not, organizations should just assume that all web content is risky and hosts potentially malicious content. The resulting zero-trust approach eliminates the need to make an allow-or-block determination based on coarse categorization. Instead, Email Isolation Solution renders all web content—including email links and attachments—in read-only mode, preventing any malicious content from ever reaching users’ devices, where it can do real damage.

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor authentication serves a vital function within any organization -securing access to corporate networks, protecting the identities of users, and ensuring that a user is who he claims to be.

Evolving business needs around cloud applications and mobile devices, combined with rising threats, and the need to reduce costs, require entirely new considerations for access control.

Authentication is one piece of the Access Management pie. Identity and Access Management solutions provide a framework for granting and requesting access to applications, enforcing access controls and ensuring visibility into access events. That’s where SafeNet Trusted Access comes in.

Active Directory Security

Behind every breach headline is an insecure Active Directory (AD) deployment. AD has become the favored target for attackers to elevate privileges and facilitate lateral movement through leveraging known flaws and misconfigurations.

Unfortunately, most organizations struggle with Active Directory security due to misconfigurations piling up as domains increase in complexity, leaving security teams unable to find and fix flaws before they become business-impacting issues.

Active Directory Security Solution enables you to see everything, predict what matters, and act to address risk in Active Directory to disrupt attack paths before attackers exploit them.

Threat Detection

An explosion of increasingly sophisticated malware is creating a highly dynamic cybersecurity threat landscape, and many organizations struggle to keep up. The problem is compounded by the shortage of cybersecurity talent.

With advanced threat intelligence, you can quickly evolve your security posture to address the latest threats and trends. Since exfiltration of data can occur in mere minutes, it’s no longer feasible to rely on signatures or manual mitigation alone. It’s critical to integrate advanced threat intelligence into your threat response processes, so you can quickly understand an impending threat, what entry points are vulnerable, and what actions you need to take.

Unified Endpoint Management

Advanced attacks can take just minutes—if not seconds—to compromise endpoints. The continued growth of advanced attacks and ransomware, along with the lack of shared intelligence among disparate security products, results in a slower, less effective endpoint threat detection, response and endpoint security.

To protect endpoints at the network edge, Endpoint Visibility and Protection solutions deliver device endpoint security that enables security teams to see, control, and protect all devices across the enterprise. With an endpoint security solution integrated tightly into the Fortinet Security Fabric, organizations can: gain visibility, enable advanced protection, reduce the attack surface, achieve dynamic access control, detect and diffuse threats in real time, and automate and orchestrate responses, support incident investigation, and management, and threat hunting.

Email Security

According to the Financial Services Monitor Worldwide, over 67% of security breaches involve phishing, compromise of business emails, and ransomware. Remote working and email communication surged in the face of the global pandemic. The impact to business disruption and financial loss are immense. A Comprehensive, multi-layered email security solution is required for your organization to fight against bulk spams, virus, malware, spoofing emails, phishing, BEC, etc.

Deception

Deception Technology changes the dynamic of cybercrime by diverting attackers away from real assets with a shadow network compromised of fake assets. This powerful security technology takes a three-pronged approach: deceive, detect, and defeat.

Deception technology provides wide-reaching cybersecurity at the lowest possible cost. The platform passively works with the network and other security measures to contain attacks and enable a return to normal operations. When attackers penetrate an enterprise, they perform reconnaissance to recognize assets. The traps appear identical in every way to real operational IT assets and connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices. A single touch of a decoy alerts cybersecurity teams of a potential attack.

Anti-DDoS

DDoS stands for “Distributed Denial of Service.” A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to make a server or a network resource unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the Internet.

To protect against volume-based attacks, anti-DDoS solution performs large-scale “scrubbing”, using cloud servers to inspect traffic, discard malicious requests and let legitimate ones through. This approach can deal with massive, multi-gigabyte DDoS attacks.
