DENVER – June 15, 2016 – Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI), an award-winning IT consulting services firm, today announced the GTRI Insider Threat Security Solution Suite that addresses threats at the device and network levels, as well as protects against user proficiency and behavior threats.
According to the 2013 US State of Cybercrime Survey, over 50 percent of participating organizations experienced an insider incident and 53 percent of affected organizations stated that the damage was greater than the loss by outsider attacks.
“Surprisingly insider cyber attacks are under-reported compared to outsider attacks and only a few cases ever make it into the public eye giving organizations the false belief that these attacks are more rare than their outsider counterparts,” said Greg Byles, CEO, GTRI. “While we understand that technology alone will not eradicate the problem of insider cyber attacks, the right technology is a critical component of fighting these attacks. The addition of the Insider Threat Security Solution Suite to the GTRI portfolio gives organizations the tools to actively take action before, during and after this class of attack.”
The GTRI Insider Threat Security Solution Suite is made up of the following solutions. Organizations can choose the entire suite of solutions, a combination, or a single solution that fits their needs best.
Device Level Threat Protection
GTRI’s device level threat protection strengthens an organization’s defenses with global threat intelligence and uses that intelligence, known file signatures, and dynamic file analysis to block malware trying to infiltrate the IT environment. It continuously monitors devices to detect if a file exhibits malicious behavior so security teams can remediate the threat.
Network Level Threat Protection
GTRI network level threat protection leverages existing resources to deliver pervasive network visibility and continuously monitors for advanced threats. The solution enables security and IT teams to transform network data into actionable security intelligence for faster threat detection. It provides advanced forensic tools for identifying the who, what, when, where, why and how of security breaches for improved incident response. By continuously collecting, analyzing and storing valuable network data, organizations can better respond to threats before, during and after a security incident.
User Proficiency and Behavior Threat Protection
To combat insider threats made possible through user negligence, the GTRI solution tests users susceptibility to phishing and other common attacks and educates employees about cyber threats that may harm the broader organization. Further by implementing a continuous cycle of assessment, education, reinforcement and measurement, organizations can maximize employee learning and lengthen retention.
Social Media Threat Protection
GTRI social media threat protection addresses the full spectrum of risks introduced by social media. Leveraging this solution, organizations can quickly determine whether a user or user population represents a broader risk based on social media interactions and social engagement.
GTRI will be announcing its Insider Threat Security Solution during a joint GTRI Cisco event that is taking place in Denver on June 15. GTRI executives will be joined by Cisco security experts to discuss “Battering Threats on Enterprise Networks” and will look at the benefits of having a security solution that provides network behavior analytics, threat visibility and security intelligence.
