Stop Attackers in their Tracks: How to Incorporate Smart Detection Strategies

If an attacker was on your network would you know? How long would the breach go undetected? Statistics show that attackers can remain hidden on a network up to 200 days before being detected, and cause untold damage in that time period.

And while it’s accepted that perimeter defenses cannot provide 100% protection against attacker’s technology that lets you find attackers quickly and efficiently has been a challenge.

LightCyber delivers on the promise of just that.  Accurate, efficient detection of attackers after they have breached your network, providing you clarity about the attacker from network intelligence combined with added context detailing using our ability to access critical device data.  Combined together, LightCyber lets you quickly zero in on the exact device accessed by the attacker, which allows fast remediation to stop damage before it happens.
