Security teams have been scrambling to contend with the astronomical rise in the number and types of network endpoints, largely due to accelerated digital transformation and the massive increase in remote workers since the beginning of 2020. There’s a staggering new range of potential vulnerabilities emanating from ever-increasing endpoints that require monitoring, protection, and maintenance.
While IoT has revolutionized business advancements and consumer convenience, it has indeed opened a Pandora’s Box of endpoint security issues. Trying to safeguard against malicious infiltration has become a high stakes game requiring ever more powerful and adaptable defense solutions. According to research by the Ponemon Institute, many IT professionals, an alarming 67% interviewed, believe the use of bring-your-own devices during the pandemic decreased their organization’s security posture, and fear that remote workers are putting their organization at risk of a data breach. One in three U.S. employees use their personal computer and smart phone to work remotely, while only 17% use a corporate-issued computer.
Often seen as the first line of defense, endpoint security has greatly evolved from the traditional antivirus software to more comprehensive endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions. Today’s EDR provides more robust protection against sophisticated malware and zero-day threats with continuous monitoring that enables better visibility and response options. Next-generation endpoint security uses artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and a tighter integration of network and device security to provide more comprehensive and adaptive protection than traditional endpoint security solutions.
Security must extend beyond desktops and laptops to prevent exploits from infiltrating networks. Between the plethora of mobile devices and connected wearables, there is an explosion of vulnerable endpoints, with user behaviors and negligence adding to the risk matrix. Extended detection and response (XDR) platforms are next-level exploit prevention offering the contextual and intuitive forensics, visibility and reliability that should be a part of a multilayered approach.
RevBits Endpoint Security is a robust next-gen detection, response, and blocking solution with a three-phased analysis engine utilizing AV signature scanning, a sophisticated machine learning model, and advanced behavioral analysis. The RevBits EDR advanced design safeguards against threats like malware, phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks, SQL injection, password hacking, and file-less exploits. ”Unfortunately, most endpoint security solutions can’t prevent exploits. Instead, they allow the exploit to enter and rely upon their ability to detect and mitigate injected malware,” states David Schiffer, RevBits CEO. “Our endpoint security detects and blocks malicious executables 100% percent of the time. It also eliminates costly time and effort by not reporting distracting and time-wasting false positives.”
A recent government agency PoC required endpoint security deployment within a proper air-gapped environment. They had a primary concern around workstations and the air-gapped network’s vulnerability to malware introduction via USB devices. The requirement mandated complete functionality on air-gapped workstations and all administration conducted without internet connectivity. Additionally, the agency required deep forensics capacity and artifact collection on schedule and demand. RevBits Endpoint Security was deployed in an on-premises configuration, with complete administrative control of all solution capabilities. As a result, every product feature for protection and detection and forensics and mitigation was entirely functional without internet access.
RevBits ensures that all functionalities can run without external dependencies, such as offline licensing, forensic extraction, malware detection and blocking, USB control, scanning, and analysis. RevBits intelligence engine integrates its behavioral analysis with the MITRE Attack Framework. Critical detection points are implanted with sensors in system threads, registries, file systems, networks, etc. As a result, RevBits Endpoint Security has a massive list of abnormal activities classified and scored for broad coverage of any process, including API calls and accessing system resources. RevBits EDR offers feature-rich forensics and control capabilities. The U.S. patented technology provides Windows kernel-level security that prevents unauthorized drivers from loading onto the operating system. All endpoint processes, registries, and file structures are accessible through a GUI or a command line.
“RevBits will continue to pursue global markets and accelerate our strategic alliances. We will leverage those relationships to bring RevBits full suite of innovative cybersecurity products to organizations around the world”, concludes Mucteba Celik, RevBits CTO. RevBits full suite of cybersecurity solutions covers the entire threat landscape – targeting endpoints, emails, networks, and privileged accounts. All of these vulnerability surfaces are protected by RevBits patented next-gen technology.
