SpearTip’s ShadowSpear® Platform Protecting & Responding To Ransomware Attacks

The rise in cybersecurity threats amidst the coronavirus pandemic has pushed many organizations to move to cloud-driven remote security operations centers more than ever before to minimize risk and maximize profit.  It has been stressed repeatedly the only constant is change in the cybersecurity industry and the method of cyberattacks by the threat actors.

Therefore, new challenges will arise, roadblocks will arise, and important decisions will have to be made. Companies continue to successfully leverage cloud-based security solutions as the remote workforce outlasts the short-term expectations set back in March.

Importance of Cybersecurity

A remote workforce now has a heavy presence and acceptance in industries throughout the market. Endpoints are scattered across multiple home networks and as a result, securing them becomes more difficult. It then becomes a strain on those responsible to secure and monitor activity. With a cloud-based solution, teams can rely on a third-party cybersecurity firm to secure and monitor each and every endpoint on the network around the clock.

SpearTip has answered this call when your organization is under attack. SpearTip’s ShadowSpear® Platform is built around cloud-based Endpoint Detection and Response, cloud SIEM, and remote remediation capabilities. This toolset creates widespread visibility of all endpoints despite which network they are connected to. Having a third-party cybersecurity firm continuously monitor the environment for malicious activity and the ability to respond to security events establishes a strong security blanket of protection. In addition to the ShadowSpear® Platform, a 24/7/365 Security Operations Center (SOC), staffed with certified engineers, monitoring these endpoints by creating a multi-layered defense mechanism of a technological and human tethered conglomerate that holds an IACPA, SOC2 Type 2 certification on our cyber counterintelligence platform.

A strong security posture formulates stability, SpearTip’s cyber counterintelligence tradecraft is more than just deploying security technology to secure against advanced threats. Leveraging our counterintelligence background, SpearTip developed a cloud-based platform that enables our security engineers to protect your firm 24/7/365.  Our Neutralize goes to work immediately within an environment to prevent malware and exploitation techniques.  Neutralize equips an organization with Next-Gen Antivirus and Enterprise Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities as the initial protective barrier.  Identify provides enhanced visibility across your entire information security environment, correlating logs from various log sources within our proprietary cloud-based Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).  The ShadowSpear® Counter provides the ability to remotely remediate any host within an environment, providing SpearTip’s SOC engineers the ability to immediately react to malicious activity.  The reliance on cloud resources drove SpearTip’s developers to add our Detect module that seamlessly protects and secures almost all cloud infrastructure and SaaS platforms to thwart attacks on your most sensitive data.

This Security Operations Center (SOC)-as-a-Service model enables an organization to allow third-party access and responsibility to handle and manage security as a force multiplier for your technical team. A major benefit in the cybersecurity realm is a human element working hand-in-hand with the newest innovative security technology. The engineers are micromanaging the network for destructive activity which can cause business disruption and be a detriment to brand reputation. To reemphasize, an organization can obtain access to a cloud-based tool immediately and it removes the uncertainty of having to worry about updates or additional deployments because everything is controlled and supervised by these engineers via a single pane of glass dashboard, like ShadowSpear®. This allows your internal technical team to focus on strategic corporate initiatives.
