Charles Leaver – Ziften’s Lightweight Approach To Endpoint Security Is The Right Way

Charles Leaver Ziften CEO Presents A Post By CTO David Shefter

If you are an organization with 5000 or more workers, it is likely that your IT Security and Operations groups are overwhelmed with the degree of data they need to sift through for just a small amount of visibility about what their user community is doing on a repetitive basis. Antivirus suites have actually been implemented and they have actually shut off USB ports as well as imposed user access constraints, but the threat of cyber attacks and malware infestations still exists. What action do you take?

As much as 72% of advance malware and cyber criminal invasions take place in the endpoint environment, so says a Verizon Data Breach Report. Your business has to ask itself how essential its credibility is first. If you take Target as an example, it cost them over $ 6 Billion in market cap loss because of a malware infiltration. Regrettably the modern-day world places us continuously under attack from dissatisfied or rogue staff members, anarchists and other cyber lawbreakers. This situation is just likely to get worse.

Your network is protected by a firewall program etc however you are unable to see exactly what is occurring past the network switch port. The only real method to address this threat is by implementing a solution that works well with and compliments existing network based solutions that you have. Ziften (which is Dutch for “To Sift”) can provide this solution which offers “Open Visibility” with a lightweight method. You have to handle the entire environment which includes servers, the network, desktops and so on. However you do not wish to place additional overheads and tension on your network. A substantial Ziften commitment is that the solution will not have a negative effect on your environment, however it will supply a deeply impactful visibility and security solution.

The innovative software from Ziften completely understands machine behavior and irregularities, enabling experts to focus on advanced threats faster to decrease dwell time to a minimum. Ziften’s solution will constantly monitor activity at the endpoint, resource consumption, IP connections, user interactions and so on. With the Ziften solution your company will have the ability to identify faster the root cause of any intrusion and repair the issue.

It is a light-weight solution that is not kernel or driver based, minimal memory usage, there is little to no overhead at the system level and almost zero network traffic.

For driver and kernel based solutions there are extreme accreditation requirements that can take longer than 9 months. By the time the brand-new software is developed and baked, the OS could be at the next version of release. This is a time consuming, non-supportable and cumbersome process.

The Ziften technique is a genuine differentiator in the market. The execution of an extremely light weight and non invasive agent as well as implementing this as a system service, it gets rid of the tensions that many new software solutions introduce at the endpoint. Ease of execution leads to faster times to market, easy support, scalability, and simple solutions that do not hinder the user environment.

To summarize, with the present level of cyber risks and the risks of a cyber attack increasing every day that can significantly stain your reputation, you need to implement constant monitoring of all your endpoint gadgets 24/7 to make sure that you have clear visibility of any endpoint security threats, gaps, or instabilities and Ziften can deliver this to you.
