“Orchestrating Cyber Hygiene across enterprises to secure them from emerging cyberattacks.”
Cyberattacks are increasing at an alarming rate. Attackers have mastered identifying the security loopholes and have smart tactics to invade the network. This has led to a tremendous increase in the number of security breaches, putting enterprises at risk.
With more devices connected to the internet and an increasing number of attacks, a new approach to endpoint security and management is needed. SecPod’s vision is to create a unified platform that helps manage and secure endpoints like systems, mobile, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices.
SecPod is an endpoint security and management technology company, where SecPod (Security Podium, incarnated as SecPod) was founded in the year 2008. Its platform SanerNow, launched in the year 2018, gives end-to-end endpoint management and security. The cyber hygiene platform is widely used by MSPs and enterprises worldwide. SanerNow helps organizations orchestrate and automate healthy cyber hygiene routines in a few simple steps. It also licenses security technology to top security vendors through its SCAP Content Professional Feed since 2012.
How do we help?
“We have many tools, but no security.” This is everyone’s experience while securing and managing their IT environment. Organizations invest in multiple software with overbearing capabilities. They get trained on each new technology and go through certifications to find that they are not effective. There are point solutions to every new challenge, but the above has only created a procurement, learning, and management burden while increasing the IT management costs.
Large numbers of attacks happen due to compromised endpoints. These endpoints form most computing devices in any organization. Attackers can easily bypass perimeter protection systems and network security measures to cause major damage in a few minutes through weak or compromised endpoints.
The footprint of most products expands with new releases and functionality. This leads to a feature set, which increases complexity and training requirements. Feature-rich, highly complicated, and pricey point solutions will not solve the current fundamental problems of endpoint management and security.
Compared to a decade ago, building a computing infrastructure is now a speedy activity, thanks to virtualization and cloud technology. But the same can’t be said about IT management and security products. We can quickly build a computing infrastructure but struggle to secure it. Hence, a new approach to endpoint management and security is essential, i.e., a platform-centric approach built on an operating system’s principles.
The core (‘kernel’) will perform all the analytical computations required to detect changes and deviations. The ‘shell’ will provide the ability to query, monitor, and make changes. The ‘user/application layer’ will help to transform these computations to different use cases. A cyber hygiene platform of tools, rather than many point products, would handle tasks effectively. With such a platform, all use cases around managing and securing endpoints can be addressed from a single solution.
