A Time Machine for Advanced Persistent Treats

Scan the headlines of just about any business or technology publication, and you’re likely to see something about a data breach or hack. Cyber security is a growing concern, and many companies are finally confronting their risks head-on, with coordinated, cross-departmental initiatives and advanced solutions.

In many respects, this surge in activity is a case of industries playing catch-up. Historically, the practice of defending networks and data from hackers had been severely overlooked or, at best, cast aside as a specialized concern for the IT staff to deal with.

This out-of-site, out-of-mind mentality has caught up with many companies, and the negligent privacy and security practices of the past have become the security mishaps of today. This was the case at Sony, where a relaxed cyber policy led to a massive privacy breach involving more than 6,500 employees and a class-action lawsuit.

In some cases, the concern is larger than simply updating systems to a point where they can prevent new malware infections and data breaches. With years of underpowered security, companies are learning the hard way that hackers have already infected their systems. In other words, just because a major catastrophe hasn’t occurred, doesn’t mean your system is intrusion-free. Last year’s Neiman Marcus incident is a perfect example as hackers penetrated the company’s systems months before the attack.

Yet there is a solution for organizations that are trying to make up for past insufficiencies and ensure any lingering issues don’t become disasters. Powered by Damballa’s leading malware detection tool, Failsafe, Lunarline’s advanced malware assessment identifies advanced persistent threats hiding in your system.

About Spence Witten

Spence has somehow survived ten years at start-ups and small businesses without suffering a (major) nervous breakdown. As Lunarline's Director of Federal Sales, Spence actually loves working on proposals. If there were any doubt, this is proof that he is in fact certifiably insane. While his title says "Sales" Lunarline doesn't let him off that easy. We make him do real work, too. Luckily he's a recognized subject matter expert in security policy and loves helping clients navigate their way around tricky security compliance standards. He's also been known to lead a software development initiative or two, though that pretty much always ends poorly for everyone involved. He can be reached at spence.witten@lunarline.com.
