Stealth™ powered feature keeps you out of the headlines
Organizations historically have focused on defending fixed perimeters around their operations. This approach, however, has become less effective as enterprises increasingly embrace hybrid networks, connected devices, and edge computing. Now, in the wake of a global pandemic and the resulting massive shift toward remote working, a perimeter based network defense can be dangerous – and even disastrous – for your organization.
Bad actors also have evolved, becoming more sophisticated in their attacks with each passing day. Attackers could be lurking within your network, listening, watching, and learning. Just imagine a thief hiding in your basement, waiting patiently for the right moment to strike, and the danger becomes clear.
It’s critical that you act fast to contain threats because once hackers take control of a single device, they can rapidly expand the scope of their attack to compromise other assets. Quick isolation limits the scope of destruction.
To remain secure in the increasingly complex digital era, you must assume that no connection between elements within your enterprise can be trusted. Indeed, you must view your environment as already compromised. And you need the right tools and processes to contain those threats quickly and effectively.
In this paper, we will:
- Discuss how dynamic isolation enables you to contain new and existing threats
- Clarify how this approach is different and better than quarantine
- Explain how Unisys Stealth® dynamic isolation is part of a Zero Trust posture, which you should adopt to address the cybersecurity threats of today
Dynamic Isolation Enables You to Act Fast
Dynamic isolation is unique from cybersecurity technologies such as 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. The power of dynamic isolation, then, is both the quick isolation and the surgical control of the endpoint that the security team gains, with minimal configuration. Dynamic isolation enables fast isolation and fast de-isolation. It allows you to remove a device – or 10,000 devices, if needed – from the network, just as quickly as malware, are 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 you with a quick and easy way to respond to those alerts and address cybersecurity threats. That means your IT team members are forced 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 you to act on cybersecurity events as fast as malware can attack. Unisys Dynamic Isolation™ enables you to respond to cybersecurity threats by rapidly enforcing security policy – much more quickly than current solutions. It is exponentially faster than the 73 days it takes on average for an organization to contain a detected breach.
