Proactive Cyber Defense
One of the key ideas behind Threatcare’s philosophy is to be proactive with cyber security. Often, organizations will invest tens of thousands of dollars (or even millions) in products that they’re unable to verify; are they actually protecting their systems and assets? Not knowing if you’re protected is the opposite of proactive cyber defense. Organizations may think that they have defense, but they have no proactive process to test and verify that this is even true. Threatcare seeks to make cybersecurity transparent. By eliminating fear, uncertainty and doubt, Threatcare offers proactive cyber defense to organizations — because they have a right to know if they’re protected.
Through hacking simulations, Threatcare’s Violet platform helps to discover risk while identifying where security controls can be improved. Violet’s simulations cover some of the most common hacking scenarios, touching almost every point of an organization’s cyber security stack. From DNS tunneling to antivirus assessments, from malware beaconing to data exfiltration, Violet’s approach covers threats systems are most likely to face from an attacker — while providing visibility on the path to proper security adjustments.
Failure to be proactive can be expensive for an organization. Whether it be intellectual property or sensitive personal information like credit card numbers or any individuals medical history, a compromised system can be many times more costly in the long run than investing in a process that can help prevent intrusions. Organization’s should know whether their present controls can prevent cyber attacks. They have the right to know that they are secure. To protect systems from having their data compromised, security professionals need to start thinking like an attacker and adjust their security practices accordingly.
Discover risk before risk discovers you.
