The advanced combination of Proficio’s 24×7 managed cybersecurity services and CyberSight’s RansomStopper will provide clients with enhanced endpoint detection and response services that will specifically detect and prevent ransomware attacks in real-time.
Proficio’s award-winning managed security services provide clients with 24/7 monitoring and alerting, vulnerability management and automated response capabilities through global security operation centers located in San Diego, Singapore and Barcelona. From fully managed and co-managed SOC-as-a-service to endpoint security solutions, like RansomStopper, Proficio’s focus is on providing clients with flexible, custom-tailored cybersecurity programs that provide complete cyber protection.
“Hackers generate thousands of new ransomware daily, and legacy tools can’t keep up with emerging threats. It has become imperative for service providers to ensure they are using the most advanced technologies available to prevent a breach,” said Hyder Rabbani, Chief Operating Officer, CyberSight. “Both CyberSight and Proficio share this mindset, which makes this partnership a powerful alliance in today’s complex threat landscape. Proficio’s global soc-as-a-service offerings work hand-in-hand with RansomStopper to holistically meet the cybersecurity needs of our clients and provide them with affordable enterprise-class security.”
CyberSight’s lightweight RansomStopper uses proprietary technology and machine learning, including patented behavioral analysis and deception techniques, to detect new and existing ransomware and to protect against malicious encryption and file loss. By focusing on ransomware exclusively, RansomStopper extends the functionality of traditional antivirus solutions. RansomStopper now integrates seamlessly with Proficio’s SOC-as-a-service platform and enables clients to leverage the expertise of Proficio’s analysts and global SOC support while knowing their endpoints and perimeter devices are completely secure and protected against ransomware attacks.
“Ransomware has become a huge concern for our clients and CyberSight is absolutely the best solution on the market to combat those threats,” stated Brad Taylor, CEO of Proficio. “This strategic partnership enhances our existing endpoint security offerings by enabling us to not only detect ransomware, but to also predict it and stop it before it can do any damage to our client’s security environment. By offering RansomStopper to our clients, we are providing them the peace of mind that we are able protect their organization from end-to-end.”
