Nyotron’s PARANOID Adds Protection for Mission-Critical Servers
Mitigates Reputational and Financial Risks of a Data Breach for Enterprise Clients
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Nyotron, a provider of the industry’s first OS-Centric Positive Security solution to strengthen endpoint protection, today announced that PARANOID can now protect servers from known and unknown threats, extending the company’s reach beyond desktops and furthering its presence in the enterprise market.
In its annual Data Breach Investigations Report, Verizon highlights that servers are the most common breach target, particularly in industries such as accommodation, education, finance, healthcare, information and retail. Breaches are also becoming more technologically advanced, with almost two thirds featuring hacking, and nearly half based on fileless attacks.
PARANOID uses the company’s patented approach to cybersecurity that maps legitimate operating system behavior to distinguish between approved activities carried out by a program or user and threatening activities carried out by attackers. Once identified, PARANOID prevents illegitimate activity from causing any damage such as data exfiltration, encryption and corruption. This approach eliminates the need for prior knowledge of an exploit, offering a true future-proof solution that provides protection from any attack vector.
PARANOID provides simple, yet powerful server protection. A critical infrastructure customer recently deployed the solution on 400 servers in just two days and is already seeing significant improvements in its security posture.
“While most security solutions attempt to keep up with the never-ending number of new attack methods and malware variants, we designed PARANOID with the idea that there is a finite number of ways to damage an endpoint,” said Nir Gaist, Founder and CTO of Nyotron. “We’re leveraging this successful approach to offer customers further value, protecting their servers from known and unknown threats.”
PARANOID can also prevent breaches caused by accidental misconfiguration due to human error as well as provide compensating control for legacy, unsupported and unpatched servers and applications.
Nyotron offers the last line of defense to help win the war on malware. Based on the industry’s first OS-Centric Positive Security model that only allows legitimate operating system behavior, Nyotron prevents data exfiltration, corruption and other damage. Nyotron seamlessly complements existing endpoint security products with a future-proof solution, providing protection from any attack vector without foreknowledge of an exploit. The company’s headquarters is in Santa Clara, California, and R&D is in Israel. To learn more, visit www.nyotron.com.
