What is Behavior Monitoring?
While preventative cyber security is the best way to protect your network, it’s not always successful. Hackers are getting smart. Malware is evolving. Firewalls and antiviruses can’t keep you safe from every threat. That’s where behavior monitoring, a vital component of an Intrusion Detection System, comes in.
Think of it like a 24/7 guard that patrols your network. It understands normal network traffic patterns, including employees logging in and out, accessing websites and downloading files. Then, when something out of the ordinary occurs, like a DDoS attack, we fix it.
Benefits of Behavior Monitoring
Hackers know that small and medium-sized businesses tend to have subpar cyber security, and target them as a result. As soon as an Intrusion Detection System is triggered, it then alerts an Intrusion Prevention System. This stops the threat.
Zero Day Protection
Zero day vulnerabilities are easily-exploitable software and hardware flaws. For example, if a hacker finds a flaw in Microsoft Outlook, they can breach your network even if you have a firewall. Behavior monitoring is the best defense against this.
Hackers don’t work 9-5. Rather, they’re up around the clock, searching for networks to attack. Your data is monitored 24/7, so if a breach does occur, it’s fixed as soon as possible.
Fast Incident Response
Our behavior monitoring software alerts our team as soon as a threat is detected. You won’t have to wait until a hacker has already stolen your company’s data. We’ll address it before you even realize.
Behavior monitoring grants insights into the ways your workers spend their time. As a result, you learn about their internet activity and harmful programs they may download.
