The number of cyberattacks to all businesses is a constant reminder of how vulnerable our most coveted data is. With the number of attack vectors on the rise, businesses struggle to detect and respond to the constant plethora of attacks affordably and reliably. Attackers are constantly updating their tradecraft and using tools already installed and trusted on systems to do their bidding. Malicious insiders already have access to your environment, making detection and remediation even more difficult.
Cigent is proposing a new approach to data security, one that takes the concepts present in current cyberadversary behaviors, continuous authentication, and zero trust networks, and applies them to both increasingly lower levels of the storage and information stack and upward toward the network and cloud stack. The result is an unprecedented level of protection, detection and response to cyberattacks, insider threats, and suspicious user behavior.
Our Cigent for Endpoints™ product is new and novel idea aimed at eXtreme Data Protection. Our product utilizes a number of sensors from both the network, the file system, the operating system, user behaviors and third party products that are then fed into an Endpoint Analysis Engine that utilizes machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and user feedback to elicit a response to the severity of the detection. This can be the triggering of a response on a Cigent Bare Metal-enabled SSD, initiation of our Active Lock feature to lock important local data files and force the user to utilize a second authentication factor, blocking access to a cloud application or sending an alert to a SIEM or SOC.
