How many Security Alerts are Too Many? Learn how to Reduce Security Alerts and Increase Accuracy
Jerry Cyrus, Security Manager at FD Mediagroep, discusses how LightCyber Magna is giving early warning about cyber attacks and letting them see what is going on in their network.
With today’s internal and external threats, it is not longer possible to rely on preventative security. You have to expect that an external attacker will find a way into your network, probably through compromising a host computing device or user account. Will you be able to tell? Can you see the attacker at work, exploring the network and establishing new points of control? With LightCyber Magna, Gigamon can find an active attacker quickly.
This candid video interview provides insight from a network professional working at a large heath care company. In it, he discusses the importance of knowing what is going on in their network. He then describes how deploying LightCyber Magna™, which uses behavioral profiling to see normal activity for their specific environment, enables them to spot malicious anomalies of targeted attacks or insider attacks. You will hear why he now has a high level of confidence in knowing they can quickly detect and stop malicious activity and protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII), which is so critical to healthcare organizations. Additionally, he describes how taking on these new attack detection capabilities has made the security team more productive and able to accomplish more with less.
This short video interview highlights important considerations in preventing M&A integration from bringing an existing attacker into your network.
One overlooked area for the IT integration of merged or acquired (M&A) companies is the blind spot that exists in not knowing whether one firm may be connecting to another where a network intruder may have been long hidden. “You don’t know what you don’t know,” explains a senior security executive from a health care company that has been an active acquirer. “The thing that keeps security people up at night is what they don’t know. When you go into a new environment and are about to bring that company on to your network, there’s another thing that you don’t know.”
Jim Broome, from Direct Defense, discusses the benefits he has experienced from being a part of the LightCyber Channel Alliance Program. These advantages include the ability to expand the security ecosystem of his customers with a technology able to quickly locate and stop cyber attacks before they cause damage.
LightCyber attended the Check Point University in Milan, Italy and here discusses how LightCyber and Magna works to quickly and efficiently detect attackers that have broken through network defenses. They also show how LightCyber Magna works with Check Point to allow organizations to quickly identify critical security events and isolate infected computers before significant damage is done.
