EDR: New Cyber Threats Demand New Protection By Jake Nonnemaker

img-blog-New-Cyber-Threats-Demand-New-Protection-By-Jake-Nonnemaker

The latest data shows that cyber-attacks are up 50% in 2022 compared to last year. 47% of businesses have been victims of ransomware attacks. Ransomware demands are estimated to have cost businesses and families $3.6 billion in 2021. Recovery from cyber-attacks, loss of business, reputational damage cost Americans an additional $13 billion.

Remote work or working-from-home makes users MORE vulnerable to attack. Employees no longer have the protection of belonging to security domain and having the benefits of an advanced firewall like they do when working at the office. Additionally, remote workers present a challenge to businesses because they need to provide security to a distributed workforce in unknown environments.

What is AXICOM Doing to Provide Cybersecurity?

AXICOM is deploying new security solutions to our clients as fast as cyber-criminals are developing new schemes and techniques. Some of these protections include:

  • Security patches for Windows and MacOS and the major applications.
  • Managed Antivirus
  • Activation of Multifactor Authentication (MFA) on email and other cloud services.
  • AxiBlock Email Security
  • AxiVault/O365 data backup of your Office 365
  • Employee cybersecurity training
  • Endpoint Detect and Response (EDR)

What is Endpoint Detect and Response and Why Your Need It?

You can think about Endpoint Detect and Response (EDR) software as the next generation of anti-malware and cybersecurity protection that continuously monitors computers and servers for threats that may be invisible to traditional antivirus solutions. EDR detects malicious activity on an endpoint then will quarantine or kill the activity and files. If all else fails, our EDR solution will rollback any damage caused by the malicious activity, such as restoring files encrypted by ransomware.

AXICOM partners with SentinelOne, a leading EDR software, and we bundle it with a security operations centers (SOC) service. The SOC operates 24x7 to respond to alerts, analyze potentially malicious activity, and perform remediation if warranted. Your Insurance and EDR

The recent attacks on small businesses have caused insurance companies to now require EDR as a standard protection for their clients. Businesses without EDR pay enormous insurance premiums due to their increased risk profile. AXICOM’s EDR solution helps reduce these exorbitant insurance premiums.

AXICOM is Security-Focused

Our goal is protecting our clients from data loss, monetary damage, crippling downtime, and reputational damage. We accomplish this with a layered security approach, protecting you at all levels of tech from cloud apps, the endpoints (computers), communication systems (email, messaging) and data backup.
