How Protected is Your Enterprise?

Today’s advanced attacks, compliance requirements and key trends, such as the rise of virtualization, are impacting data centers. As 67 percent of breaches occur on servers and 94 percent of stolen data are from servers¹, relying on antivirus alone for protection isn’t enough. Organizations require a solution that can defend against insider and target attacks, and safeguard the most dynamic virtual and physical infrastructure.

Harden and protect your VMware infrastructure

Due to varying confidentiality, integrity, and availability requirements, each virtualization layer has to be protected to reduce the risks of data breach and critical business downtime.

Secure your VMware vSphere™ environment and realize these benefits with Critical System Protection:

  • Gain maximum protection across the VMware vCenter management server, VMware EXi™ hypervisor, and guest virtual machines
  • Get complete out-of-box protection using both host-based intrusion detection (HIDS) and intrusion prevention (HIPS)
  • Harden, protect, and monitor Microsoft Windows-based vCenter servers against unauthorized access, zero-day, and targeted attacks

Protect your domain controllers

Cybercriminals have often tried to gain access to user credentials through the Active Directory (AD) environment to leak confidential information.

Using policy-based prevention and real-time detection, Critical System Protection secures and hardens your domain controller, allowing businesses to:

  • Stop internal and external attacks on domain controllers
  • Reduce risk by blocking unauthorized access
  • Protect critical infrastructure by locking down the AD database files

Address PCI compliance requirements

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance adds another layer of complexity for organizations. According to the 2012 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 96 percent of organizations that are subject to PCI DSS have not achieved compliance².

Critical System Protection offers real-time monitoring and compensating controls to address PCI DSS compliance requirements, enabling businesses to:

  • Protect PCI data and servers from compromise
  • Meet ongoing PCI DSS requirements
  • Reduce risk with real-time detection of unauthorized behavior

Stop zero-day attacks and reduce cost of support

To maintain their security, legacy operating systems need frequent software security patches, which can cause downtime and leave systems vulnerable to zero-day attacks.

Critical System Protection can stop zero-day attacks and protect systems between patch cycles to help businesses:

  • Prevent exploit of known and unknown vulnerabilities to stop zero-day attacks
  • Protect legacy Windows NT® and Windows® 2000 systems
  • Get immediate protection with out-of-the-box policies while eliminating costly downtime

Shield embedded systems from targeted attacks

Mission-critical equipment, like point-of-sale (POS) systems and automated teller machines (ATMs) are often ill-equipped to deal with today’s multiple threats.

Using technology based on security policies and behavior lock-down, Critical System Protection can:

  • Stop malware from infecting embedded systems through advanced threat protection
  • Reduce costs associated with patching cycles and signature updates
  • Leverage a low footprint security solution that runs transparently, without the heavy resource utilization, and constant signature updates of traditional solutions
