According to the report: "Cybersecurity is more than a regulatory requirement and has implications for sustainable growth. At the basic level, it ensures business continuity so organizations can provide reasonable level of services without being interrupted by unexpected attacks. It also protects organization’s highly valued digital assets so they can retain competitive advantage".
User Advice on Cyber Security
The report also advises users with the following:
Educate business executives of cybersecurity and the importance of their sponsorship and input as often their jobs are on the line in the event of major cyberincidents and compliance violations. Create an urgency to put in place security and risk management programs to defend the organization.
Engage business leaders to establish a set of sustainable controls to balance between growing the business and providing cybersecurity.
Create a security process catalog covering major and relevant security aspects such as vulnerability, privacy, identity and access management, incident response and business continuity.
Develop skills and communication tools so that security leaders can effectively convey risk postures and improvement targets".
About Sangfor Cyber Security Solutions
As a leading APAC network security vendor, Sangfor embraces innovation that keeps enterprise safe from a highly dynamic & volatile cybersecurity landscape.
Traditionally, organizations are required to manage their Next-Generation Firewall and their Endpoint Security on separate management consoles, creating layers of management complexity and often compromising effective malware detection and response.
Sangfor recently released a new version 8.0.26
of its well-known Next Generation Application Firewall
(NGAF) with improvements such as integrated management of both NGAF and Sangfor’s Endpoint Secure
. Sangfor NGAF helps organization automate threat defense & security measures by consolidating threat information from the network perimeter & endpoints. Sangfor NGAF provides native security event correlation & response with Sangfor Endpoint Secure, helping organizations reduce incident response time by 40% compared to more traditional approaches that require human intervention for event analysis.
Sangfor NGAF Protection from Advanced Malware
Ransomware and cryptomining malware are relentlessly encrypting business critical assets and asking for a substantial ransom for the return of stolen files. NGAF now works in conjunction with Sangfor’s Engine Zero
, an AI-powered detection solution, to prevent advanced malware from even entering the enterprise network.
Granular Asset Management & Traffic Micro-Segmentation
Enterprise management of business assets is time consuming and complicated without proper asset management functions. IT administrators are unable to monitor and visualize real-time traffic between critical assets, leaving many attack surfaces improperly monitored and vulnerable.
Sangfor NGAF provides organizations granular integrated business asset management features, enabling real-time traffic visualization and monitoring of all high-risk communication among assets and the network zones. Sangfor NGAF provides native traffic micro-segmentation, allowing IT to easily deploy flexible security policies & minimize attack surfaces, instead of installing multiple physical firewalls.
Sangfor is known for simple and effective security solutions like Sangfor NGAF and Endpoint Secure, making the integration of these powerful solutions with the equally powerful protection of Engine Zero ground-breaking in the industry.
Fast Incident Response
Sangfor Incident Response
, also known as IR services, help track ransomware through the system, back to its source, discover vulnerabilities and entry points, and mitigate the fallout by removing visible and invisible ransomware from the system. Many companies believe that they have experienced the worst as victims of a ransomware attack, but without IR services, ransomware can hide or remain dormant within a system for a long period of time, waiting for its next opportunity to deploy.
