Privacy Bureaux has announced a strategic extension to its Enterprise Protection Suite aimed at protecting the mid-market by including core components of Comodo’s active protection technology against cybersecurity breaches.
The addition of Comodo’s privacy and cybersecurity solutions offers revolutionary protection for Privacy Bureaux’s SMB and midsize business customers, who receive simple, secure and affordable cybersecurity solutions.
Many businesses looking to choose endpoint cyber security protection are faced with an overwhelming process with a myriad of products to choose from, all with the same or very similar features. While they may use different terminologies, fundamentally they are all based on the same basic concept of malware detection or post-breach detection of malicious activity.
“Unfortunately, in today’s regulated environment, this is simply not good enough. When a business detects an intruder, some data may have been stolen. Screening is no longer the best solution,” says Ronnie Rajendra, Privacy Bureaux Advisory Board member.
In Australia alone, an estimated $5 billion was spent on cybersecurity-related products in 2021. Globally, in 2022, an estimated $170 billion will be spent on security products, but breaches continue to be reported daily. Companies need to move from spending more money on the problem to understanding the root cause and preventing breaches from occurring.
“At Privacy Bureaux, we recognize that it takes a very simple process to prevent hackers from infecting endpoints: if you prevent all unknown malicious files from writing to disk, COM interface, or the registry, you stop the breach before it happens.” happen”. Rajendra says.
“No violation equals no harm. The challenge is that, historically, this process also stops productivity, interrupts users, and creates chaos for internal IT teams. This was not sustainable.”
Privacy Bureaux’s partnership with Comodo enables the organization to prevent all unknown files from being written to the disk, COM interface, and registry by isolating these writes in a secure virtual environment (patented).
The combined technology can analyze an unknown file in real time to determine whether it is safe or malicious, while the user continues to interact with the application normally, with no impact on productivity or risk of infection.
All writes are contained in a single secure virtual environment, so the machine is fully protected while the rest of the network is protected. No hackers. No malicious software. No ransomware.
“After extensive market evaluation and offensive security testing, we are ready to include Comodo’s revolutionary technology in our Enterprise Protection Suite,” says Rajendra.
“Privacy Bureaux is dedicated to providing simple, secure and affordable solutions for the mid-market and SMB, and we are unique in that we work at the intersection of privacy, security and data governance to protect our clients’ reputations and maintain their confidence. “
The pandemic has forced employees to work from home, resulting in a massive amount of sensitive data residing on remote endpoints, which are the easiest access point for hackers. For Privacy Bureaux customers, the endpoint is the new perimeter, and if the organization can tighten the security of the endpoint, it eliminates a major problem. Enterprise Protection Suite has been specifically designed to do just that.
Comodo publishes a weekly figure of the infection rate of its clients, and as of October 5, 2020 they are zero.
“Although it can never be guaranteed that it will never be breached in the future, past history is a strong indicator of future performance. Do any other cybersecurity providers publish their infection rate? We haven’t found any,” says Greg Wyman, vice president of Australia and New Zealand at Comodo.
Rajendra adds: “The challenge for most service providers and organizations is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
“At Privacy Bureaux, we take a holistic, pragmatic and methodical approach to help ensure maximum security and compliance with minimal disruption to business processes at an affordable cost.”
