You Are Not As Secure As You May Believe
An assumption that having antivirus (a.k.a endpoint protection) and a standard firewall is adequate protection today’s world couldn’t be further from the truth. In addition, the school-of-thought that you don’t have anything anyone would want also misses a critical fact that puts an organization at great risk. Your organization’s reputation relies in part on providing a secure home for sensitive information, safeguarding access to it and mitigating any potential open doors or blind liabilities your system may have with other information and systems that are also targets. Today’s threats are very sophisticated, easy to launch, far reaching and aimed directly at your business. Skilled attackers use zero-day vulnerabilities as a weapon of choice which means you must guard against these new and unknown threats.

The Internet provides enormous capabilities and opportunities for businesses and organizations of every size. Unfortunately, such significant value has generated a dramatic increase in Internet-based crime – commonly referred to as Cyber Crime.
One of the most problematic elements of Cyber Security is the quickly and constantly evolving nature of security risks. The traditional approach to cyber security has been to focus most resources on the most crucial system components and protect against the biggest known threats, which necessitated leaving some less important system components undefended and some less dangerous risks not protected.
This approach to protecting your IT system is no longer acceptable against the sophisticated capabilities of today’s cybercriminal community. Cyber security experts world-wide are promoting a more proactive and adaptive approach to cyber security. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Center for Internet Security (CIS), for example, recently issued updated guidelines in its risk assessment framework that require specific continuous controls and monitors to be in place in order to be compliant with respective guidelines. Additionally, they have updated security risk assessment methods to include specific actions necessary for organizations to assess and strengthen their security posture in response to these threats.
In response to this ever evolving challenge, Cardinal Point Technologies has partnered with the world’s foremost online security and trust assurance innovators and puts experienced Certified Information System Security Professionals (CISSP) in charge of your security. Cardinal Point Technologies provides the most professional, comprehensive set of enterprise-level business security solutions available anywhere in the world.

SMB’s are the most victimized sector of businesses by debilitating security breaches and cyberattacks. Lack of adequate protection from the sophisticated nature of threats is the number one reason. Typically, the primary target of the attacker is not the SMB itself. Rather, it is used as an entry point to launch an attack on the intended high-value target. Unfortunately, the SMB still suffers collateral damage, which frequently has devastating, irreversible effects. To mitigate these risks, Cardinal Point Technologies offers a suite of highly-specialized, multi-layered IT security and forensic solutions for businesses of all sizes to help them proactively take control of their security and their future. These solutions protect users and resources in or outside the walls of your organization and in the cloud, stopping advanced threats before they reach their intended target.
Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Adobe Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads.
Ransomware is the number one type of malware attack impacting organizations. It encrypts your files, including other files on the network if it has access and holds them hostage so you can’t use them until some ransom is paid. In most cases, users never recover access to their files even if the ransom is paid. At the best, this leads to a massive loss in business productivity and at worst a total loss of data. Even if you have backups, you may not be able to easily determine if the ransomware is dormant in the backups themselves, leading to re-occurrence.
Our suite of tools intercepts spontaneous encryption of data and even rolls you back to previous safe versions of files. It safeguards your data and even shackles legitimate processes that have been hijacked.
If you’ve been hit or an attempt was made, how did it happen, who did it impact, what did it impact, what should I be worried about and most importantly, what should your game plan be? Our solution offers root cause analysis to help you answer those questions and understand the lifecycle of the attack in a forensic light, including guidance for immediate remediation, short-term moratoriums and long-term responses. These are important pieces of information when you need to assess potential damage, remediate and respond with next steps. It is also the type of information you will be required to provide if you are subject to many regulatory and insurance compliance mandates.
Like terrorist attacks, unknown threats, zero day attacks and patient zero attacks are classified as such because you have no information about the threat available at the time of impact and subsequently you have had zero days to prepare. Similarly, a patient zero attack means you are one of the first to have been a victim of the threat. Keeping users safe in a world of these threats requires a totally different approach to security that is multi-layered and provides multi-channel remediation. While traditional endpoint virus protection safeguards you from standard viruses and malware, it is not equipped to protect you from these modern threats. Cardinal Point Technologies uses tools that provide protection from unknown, zero-day and patient zero attacks so attackers are stopped before they even get into the ring.
Malware is smart enough to lay dormant unless certain conditions are met and evade detection until it’s too late. How do you deal with such a problem? One technique is sandboxing. Much like your immune system, sandboxing aims to isolate, learn, adapt and then attack – before the invader can begin its destruction. In this way, you can isolate and execute untested or unknown programs and code in a virtual environment to assess, collect data and eliminate the threat without risking or harming a production computing environment. The threat is safely detonated and a signature of the result is captured, keeping you safe now and using that information in the future.
In some cases, real-time analysis and response to security information and events that come from different sources in your environment is necessary. Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) is at the heart of compliance, alerting and proactive monitoring of the state-of-the-union. When it comes to your organization, SIEM gives you the insight needed to fortify your system. With the ability to be automated, SIEM is one of the best tools to discover and investigate network breaches and unauthorized system access in order to provide stakeholders impact assessment and build policies to defend and protect in the future.
Information technology compliance is a major concern for many organizations. Due to the highly sensitive nature of the information they deal with every day, they bear a responsibility and obligation to maintain privacy and other standards. Acts such as the Gramm-Leach-Biley Act of 1999 (GLB), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), impose a responsibility on the organizations they were designed for. As such, affected organizations are expected to make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of information as it relates to the regulation. Many organizations don’t even realize they are subject to governmental compliance or standards set forth in liability or errors and omissions insurance policies they have for their business - sadly, they often find out after a costly breach, leaving the organization crippled.
Compliance and security is a chain of custody. When just one of these pieces is weak or missing, your organization is at risk. Our solutions team will help you understand how safeguarding confidential data and information technology solutions intersect and interact to ensure full compliance throughout your organization.
