Increase Efficiency, Reduce Workload

As is often the case, if you want something done and done
well you find someone who is already busy to do it. Security executives are no
exception. They are recognized as competent, successful and fully loaded with
projects and responsibilities. Their list keeps growing with the expanding need
for more and more security steps, measures and processes with the ever-changing
threat landscape.
One recent study by specialty recruiters in the UK,
Randstad, found that most IT technicians and engineers
are working the equivalent of 7.5 day’s work during their typical work week.
They often are working on weekends to fit in the extra hours. They’re receiving
the same pay for doing the work of one and a half staff. The instability of the
economy is causing many to take on the extra work.
One of the best responses to
a maximized schedule is to find tools that will enhance the results while not
adding to the workload. One resource proven to be extremely helpful to
security executives is the Nemesis advanced malware protection service. It allows them to do a health check of their network security with minimal
time and energy commitment.
Nemesis was designed to make
life easier for security executives. It takes less than 20 minutes to
configure.

The dashboard offers a quick
view of the number of sites that are used for Command & Control, phishing, fraud, malware distribution and a number of other malicious categories. Each one of these communications is blocked so your data and
system are safe and can’t be used for malicious purposes.
Nemesis also:
  • Protects all
    internet enabled devices, regardless of operating system
  • Prevents malware
    from entering a network
  • Identifies existing
    infiltrated systems on your network
  • Alerts and reports
    on all malicious activity across your network
  • Disables
    communication to Command & Control channels rendering the malware harmless
  • Delivers
    easy to read data in dashboard and report format so remediation can begin

Wondering if Nemesis should be added to your security
team? We’ll help you assess if Nemesis is a good match.

CounterMeasure|2012

We
proudly sponsored CounterMeasure|2012 this year and found it lived up to all our
expectations.

The quality of the event was impressive, especially considering it was its
first year, and drew in attendees, presenters and vendors from across Canada
and the U.S. It was of course great to meet up with colleagues and old friends, but having a conference like this in Canada’s capital is not just important. It’s necessary.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews says Canada is going to take cyber security seriously, with budget additions and action plans, but there is more to it than that, and alliances and cooperation have to take place outside governments as well. That’s where conferences like CounterMeasure come in, uniting the right minds in security to bring about wide-scale change. Sometimes this starts with the basics.

Some of the CounterMeasure presentations we attended and discussions we participated in were focused on the need for organizations to focus on security fundamentals such as IDS and network segmentation. Other conversations and talks were about the need for collaboration or the scope of the war waged between security professionals on both sides of the game. Some talks drilled down into the details of malware analysis and it was all received very well by the attending community.

There
were a good number of people to connect with over the two days. Good number as
in you weren’t lost in a sea of people but instead had the opportunity to meet
with everyone there. There was the time and space to have a meaningful conversation
and talk about new theories, analysis as well as current events that are making
the news.
CounterMeasure
put a good face on this call for change in security by addressing the current needs and
drawing a broad section of security focused executives, managers and technical
engineers to join in and expand the conversation.
We
look forward to sponsoring, participating and meeting with you at
CounterMeasure|2013.
