Enabling Networks across multiple verticals to identify performance issues and predict & prevent attacks before they hit
Government entities are a prime target for cybercriminals seeking to steal credentials and gain access highly sensitive data. While the increased use of apps and endpoints is designed to improve productivity and collaboration, it also expands the attack surface.
Additionally, local municipalities and governments are frequently at the intersection of different industries, third parties, and contractors – all of which contribute to security gaps and risky blind spots. Thwarting attacks, which can lead to millions of dollars in damage, requires continual network visibility and the ability to predict hidden threats before they occur.
As manufacturers embrace digitization, which has become crucial to manage supply chains and increase productivity, they face unique challenges, as legacy manufacturing systems and networks were not designed with cyber risk in mind.
Managing networks for information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) is an ongoing challenge as manufacturers roll out new IoT equipment that may introduce new cyber vulnerabilities. Today, it is critical for manufacturers to gain complete and accurate visibility across IT and OT to secure all systems and prevent attacks.
In the age of digital learning, the network is crucial for achieving successful outcomes with cloud and SaaS-based learning programs preventing attacks. With IT teams that are frequently overwhelmed and underfunded, universities face challenges in preventing attacks. Therefore, a modernized approach that focuses on complete network visibility and control over applications, users, and content over the network is required, while delivering optimized network performance.
Energy and Utilities
As energy and utility organizations modernize their operations with solutions that provide real-time data feeds, their connections to the internet increase over time, introducing new attack vectors. Operational Technology (OT) systems like wind turbines, solar arrays, and building control systems are not replaced at the same rate as IT products, therefore it’s challenging to provide the same level of protection and visibility across IT and OT systems. Gaining visibility for utilities & energy companies is a critical component for detecting and preventing attacks, and for the utility grid, there is no room for error.
Successful healthcare service today requires multiple platforms, tools, networks, and equipment to deliver optimal care. As healthcare organizations embark on this digital transformation, they introduce risk along the way. The growing adoption of complex health technology expands a hospital’s attack surface and puts sensitive information at risk. In addition, healthcare organizations often have to deal with outdated legacy IT infrastructure that doesn’t provide complete network visibility. Attacks can have a direct impact on patient care, so full visibility into traffic across the entire network to avoid threats and vulnerabilities can mean the difference between life and death.
Agencies such as Fire, Police and EMS depend on digital communication to respond to emergent situations with speed and accuracy. The complex and interconnected networks that support Emergency Communication Centers (ECC) are no strangers to cyber attacks, and these mission critical networks are seen by attackers as soft targets to help gain entry to higher value targets. These attacks are not only costly, but they can put lives in danger. Protecting these sensitive networks is crucial, and network operators must obtain full visibility into all network layers and components to provide necessary threat prediction and prevention.
Organizations that provide critical infrastructure are vital to the regular functioning of a country, from transportation to energy production to finance and communications.
These sectors, which span physical and virtual landscapes, are prime targets for attackers looking to create chaos. Attacks on these sectors can have serious implications because they also compromise national safety. To prevent attacks, operators need high level network awareness, but with both legacy and new components running, gaining visibility has been nearly impossible.
Cynamics is shaping the future of network security
Cynamics is helping organizations gain complete visibility for the most complex and complicated networks regardless of whether it consists of legacy routers and switches, virtual devices, the cloud or all of them combined.
Cynamics is built on the methodology of sampling a radically small fraction of network traffic. This sampling capability is standard “built-in” to every network devices and doesn’t require any hardware or software modifications in the monitored network.
By collecting small samples from the customer’s network, Cynamics’ innovative approach provides complete visibility and threat prediction down to the endpoint level.
