Stealth™-powered feature keeps you out of the headline
Historically, organizations have focused on defending fixed perimeters around their operations. However, this approach doesn’t work in today’s digital world because enterprise environments are dynamic and rapidly changing.
Connected devices are everywhere, and their adoption continues to grow.
Enterprise associates are no longer just using a laptop within company walls. In the age of the Internet of Things, associates are using multiple endpoints to connect with company resources from various sources all over the world. And those assets are constantly moving within and outside of the enterprise to get the job done. That makes perimeters harder to define, increasingly porous, and impossible to secure with the previous fixed approach.
During this evolution, bad actors have also evolved, becoming more sophisticated in their attacks with each passing day. And often attackers are already lurking within enterprise environments, listening, watching and deciding where to strike next.
Addressing existing threats is critical because whether you know it or not, your enterprise has likely already been compromised.
So, it’s critical for enterprises to act fast to contain threats. That’s important because once bad actors take control of a single device, they can quickly expand the scope of their attack to compromise other assets. Quick isolation limits the scope of destruction.
Organizations can’t assume that any connection between elements within the enterprise can be trusted. They must view their environments as if these already have been compromised. And they need the right tools and processes to contain those threats quickly and effectively.
In this paper, we will:
- Discuss how dynamic isolation enables organizations to contain new and existing threats
- Clarify how this approach is different and better than quarantine
- Explain how dynamic isolation is part of a Zero Trust posture, which all enterprises should adopt to address the cybersecurity threats of today
Dynamic Isolation Enables Enterprises to Act Fast
Dynamic isolation is unique from other, existing cybersecurity technologies, like quarantine, when it comes to operability and recovery. Quarantined devices are out of commission until they are reimaged. But with dynamic isolation the forensics team, operations team, and some critical services that are essential for operation, maintain access and operability.
Therefore, the power of dynamic isolation is both the quick isolation and the surgical control the security team gains of the endpoint with minimal configuration. Dynamic isolation does fast isolation and fast deisolation. It enables enterprises to remove a device (or 10,000 devices, if needed) from the network at malware speed and bring it back just as quickly – with one click or in a completely automatic way.
Other cybersecurity solutions focus on detection and prevention and inundate IT teams with alerts. But most of these offerings don’t provide IT professionals with a quick and easy way to respond to those alerts and address cybersecurity threats. That means IT team members have to invest a lot of valuable time in planning how to respond. In the meantime, hackers use that time to expand their reach and the scope of destruction.
Dynamic isolation is different. It allows enterprises to act on cybersecurity events at malware speed. Unisys Dynamic Isolation™ enables organizations to respond to cybersecurity threats by enforcing security policy fast – much more quickly than current solutions. It is far faster than the average 69-day response times enterprises face using other technologies and processes.
