Proactive Cybersecurity for the Financial Sector

The solution selected to monitor the network perimeter of the U.S. Department of Defense is now available for small- and medium-size businesses as an affordable managed service subscription.

The financial industry was the third most targeted industry in 2015, according to IBM’s Xforce Cyber Security Report. Financial institutions around the world are spending billions of dollars, while scrambling to stay ahead of cyber criminals who develop more sophisticated means of infiltration with each passing week.

In fact, Forbes reported in late 2015 that Citibank, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan and Bank of America alone were spending some $1.5 billion to battle cybercrime. In addition to protecting themselves from cyber hackers—this century’s paradigm of bank robbers—these organizations are bound to a host of industry-specific regulations such as FINRA, FISMA, FFIEC, OCC, and indirect requirements of PCI and HIPAA, all of which demand continuous monitoring in order to prevent theft and protect critical information and organization-wide processes.

If these large institutions are spending billions of dollars on solutions and resources to fight cyber attacks and, as some would argue, are still losing the battle, how can a small business maintain security and regulatory compliance on a smaller budget with less resources, tools and personnel? Cytellix proactive cybersecurity situational awareness for small businesses is the answer.

THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE

Cytellix’s scanning services continuously monitor network connections and activity, serving as the first line of defense in identifying and addressing potential threats, while ensuring continuity through any changes. Providing proactive cybersecurity situational awareness with complete visibility of complex networks, Cytellix safeguards colleges and universities—and their vast web of connected devices—with continuous monitoring of threats, while maintaining compliance with a range of regulatory requirements such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, NIST and FERPA among others.

THE CYTELLIX SOLUTION

The Cytellix solution set provides comprehensive, organizational cyber vulnerability assessments as well as real- time continuous monitoring for network health management. With leading-edge scanning technology, Cytellix can evaluate and identify any network leaks or “unknown” assets and their posture along with threat prevention recommendations and optional remediation services. Typical cyber threats identified include data leaks,
segmentation, rogue connections, bad actor site connections and high-risk open ports.

Cytellix solutions deploy a cloud-based, agentless sensor that jointly determines and monitors the total state of a network, including individual connected devices as well as the effective topology of the network itself. These subsystems create a sensor network that collectively reveals both nominal and nefarious behavior throughout, with moment-by-moment awareness and notifications, particularly of unexpected behaviors and changes.
