Target, OPM, Belgacom, the NSA: All were compromised months (or even years) before realising it. They spent millions of dollars on security products and services, but when it mattered:
They had no clue!
|Every year, hundreds of companies find out that they have been compromised when they are notified by a third party – usually months after being hacked.|
Skilful adversaries move laterally within compromised networks for months before locating and exfiltrating a company’s most sensitive of data assets.
Even companies that spend millions of dollars on their security often have no idea if malicious insiders (both external hackers as well as internal employees gone bad) are doing things they shouldn’t. Often this is because they get inundated with alerts, reports and notifications which builds up a "noise" from all the different systems. This means that malicious activity very easily slips through the monitoring net, unnoticed.
This is a solvable problem!
" With Canary's accuracy and our team's ability, responding to a security incident can be measured in minutes and hours, instead of the months we typically see. This means our ability to understand and contain a security incident is exponentially accelerated. "
