If you are not detecting and containing automatically in real time, you are already too late
ACE IT Solutions partners with EnSilo to deliver seamless, real-time endpoint protection to our clients. EnSilo stops advanced malware in real time and protects our clients endpoint. This post, from enSilo clearly explains the importance of real-time endpoint protection.
If you’ve ever played a ball game, say basketball or baseball, you know that if you drop the ball, you’ve lost the chance to score and maybe even win the game. The same can be said in endpoint security. If you don’t react immediately, you lose the chance to contain and mitigate the threat so it does not move laterally throughout the organization. You simply cannot afford days or months to detect a breach.
While walking the Black Hat conference floor, I heard dozens of security vendor pitches using terms such as “near real time” or “almost real time,” and it made me think, if you almost catch a ball or nearly catch a ball, isn’t it ultimately on the floor because you missed catching it? Attacks occur in seconds; if you don’t fight fire with fire — automatically and in real time — you will be breached.
Having said that, you know your endpoints are irresistible ports of entry to cybercriminals. That’s why attacks are inevitable and the results are predictable when endpoints don’t have real-time protection: lost or stolen data, destruction of corporate systems, and the potential for lateral movement into other devices and networks. It simply doesn’t matter whether it’s an executable or memory-based malware, whether it’s a drive-by browser download or exploit, document exploit or script: your endpoints will be compromised. What’s important is what you do about it.
The only practical solution is real-time prevention, detection, containment and response. Think about it: WannaCry takes only 52 seconds to do its dirty work. If you are not detecting and containing automatically in real time, you are already too late. That’s where kernel-level visibility, machine learning, and automation come in. As you evaluate endpoint security solutions, make sure they offer:
- Real-time prevention featuring kernel-based next-generation AV for automated prevention of ransomware encryption.The solution should incorporate machine learning so it becomes smarter over time and it should feed from a continuously updated cloud-based threat intelligence feed. Real-time prevention is pre-infection, and just good sense when it comes to security hygiene
- Real-time detection and containment featuring automated post-infection detection and blocking for surgical containment of threats.
- Real-time incident response with automated event classification, automated remediation and automated investigation without interrupting the user.
Doing the Math
A real-time approach to endpoint security drastically reduces dwell time down to nothing. For example:
|Industry Average||Real Time|
|Mean Time to Identify||197 Days||Instantaneous|
|Mean Time to Contain||69 Days||Instantaneous|
|Mean Time to Respond||6 Days||Instantaneous|
enSilo is the only endpoint security vendor that automates real-time protection, pre- and post-infection in a single platform. We recommend that our clients use enSilos as part of their layered protection strategy.
