There are ways to equip your organization with increased cybersecurity performance solutions—under budget and within compliance of your firm. Whether your organization focuses on database, network, cloud, mobile security, or all of them integrated together, there are precautionary steps that can be taken.

Consider These Top 5 Cybersecurity Preventative Solutions:

1. CylancePROTECT®

Cylance developed an effective algorithmic science and artificial intelligence solution for
preventing advanced threats and malware from executing on your organization’s endpoints.

Cylance’s unprecedented malware identification capability analyzes and classifies hundreds of
thousands of characteristics per file, breaking data down to an atomic level. This powerful function determines if an object is good or bad—in real time.

Cylance is known to be ‘smartest endpoint network security on the planet.’ In addition to a home protection plan, they have introduced a new generation of Cylance Protect® + ThreatZERO™.

2. Digital Guardian

Digital Guardian is the ‘first and only solution’ that offers data protection from ALL threats. This platform places sensitive information at the center of all data protection and activity monitoring: data discovery, classification, loss prevention, cloud protection, threat detection and response activities.

Leveraging a new ARC cloud service, this data protection platform detects threats and stops data exfiltration from both well-meaning and malicious insiders, as well as external adversaries. By converging data loss prevention and threat detection and response, there’s one less endpoint agent to manage and one less console to monitor.

3. Vectra Cognito™

Vectra has security analyst software, with a line called ‘Cognito’ that automates a hunt for cyber attackers. Highest risk threats are prioritized so cyber security teams can respond at top speed. This solution is known to stop “in-progress” attacks, preventing valuable data loss.

Vectra Cognito condenses days or weeks of work into minutes and reduces threat investigation workload by up to 29x by security event automation. Touting speed and power, Cognito ‘eats hackers for breakfast.’

4. Cisco’s AMP platform

Cisco’s Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) has continuous monitoring of malicious behavior, as well as rapid malware detection and removal.
Cisco’s AMP platform provides global threat intelligence, advanced sandboxing, and real-time malware blocking. It analyzes file activity across your extended network to detect, contain, and remove advanced malware, defeating advanced attacks.

When security matters, ultimate breach prevention is crucial. AMP agrees that your organization can’t afford to be without a cybersecurity plan in place, but cannot rely on prevention alone.

5. Palo Alto Networks Traps

Most solutions respond as if the attack has already occurred. As we see in the increased number of breach events, prevention is key. Cybersecurity prevention should be what keeps your organization’s CEO up at night and should be at the heart of every organization’s IT department.

Palo Alto Traps prevent security breaches by blocking known and unknown malware, exploits and Zero Day threats—without human intervention. Traps has an exclusive multi-method prevention approach and has advanced endpoint protection from a single, lightweight agent.

Traps multi-method exploit prevention focuses on a small set of techniques; all exploit-based attacks use, which rarely change. Instead of attempting to intercept millions of individual attacks or underlying software vulnerabilities, Traps blocks these technique threats, preventing exploitation attempts BEFORE they can compromise endpoints. Traps automatically reprograms endpoints, using threat intelligence gained from a global community of customers and partners across endpoints, networks, and Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.

Traps can protect and empower users when using web, mobile, and/or cloud-based applications without fearing cyber threats. This protection doesn’t compromise user systems and doesn’t depend on cumbersome virus scans.
