Counter-Advanced Persistent Threats as a Service
Secure a wide range of endpoints, including servers, desktops, tablets and smartphones.
Today’s global organizations require extensive IT capabilities that stretch across systems, applications and endpoints — giving an army of advanced persistent threats (APTs) a large target to strike.
Though signature-based, one-size-fits-all malware and intrusion detection systems are still necessary to protect your data from a variety of threats, they are no match for today’s highly sophisticated APTs. Few in-house IT departments have the resources they need to understand and defeat these potent new enemies.
CSC’s Counter-APT as a Service delivers the real-time detection, insight and protection you need to locate, anticipate and disrupt APTs, at a global scale, for both traditional enterprise and cloud-based environments. CSC deploys, configures, manages and monitors all aspects of your APT platform, from policy creation through system updates and upgrades.
Our next-generation offering continually integrates threat-intelligence-based security services to track threat actors and threat groups and determine their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) so you can properly secure your organization’s infrastructure and sensitive data.
The cloud, social media, smart devices and other technology innovations give you new opportunities to collaborate with customers and partners, expand into new markets, and reduce costs — but they also give today’s determined, well-funded adversaries new avenues through which to steal intellectual property, wreak havoc on your systems using denial-of-service attacks, and harm your public image.
Sophisticated APTs have likely already penetrated your systems, disguised themselves as legitimate users so they can hide in plain sight, and are actively conducting intelligence operations and malicious activity, such as exfiltrating your corporate data.
To detect, unmask and disable them requires a multidisciplinary approach that delivers:
- Actionable intelligence and countermeasures generated by proven monitoring and analysis tools that detect unknown threats
- Rapid incident-response capabilities to isolate and shut down APTs before they can damage your business
- Proactive, ongoing defense techniques to anticipate and guard against rapidly evolving APT tools, tactics and procedures
Managed security services and 24x7 monitoring
CSC’s Counter-APT as a Service delivers continuous intelligence, response and proactive defense through a seasoned multidisciplinary approach, looking at both your business and technical vulnerabilities. This service includes:
APT Detection. This service provides deep visibility into adversary activity on every endpoint — immediately detecting attacks and protecting your data without having to rely on periodic sweeps and scans. Our skilled analysts will help you develop a comprehensive Detect-Analyze-Adapt-Respond lifecycle based on your unique risk profile. CSC’s robust monitoring and analysis platform then uses heuristics and behaviors — rather than just signatures — to detect, shut down and block APTs before they do harm.
Targeted Threat and Breach Assessments. This service ensures rapid assessment and analysis of APTs on an ad hoc, quarterly and yearly basis to determine if and where your environment has been compromised. CSC isolates adversaries that are still present, determines avenues of approach that targeted attacks are using, and provides discovery methods to mitigate these risks.
Incident Response and Remediation. As APTs become more sophisticated, you need to be ready to respond rapidly to suspected or known security incidents. CSC designs, implements and tests your Incident Response and Remediation Plan and responds to incidents with well-trained cybersecurity specialists, investigators and forensic-data collectors to deny APTs further access to your environment.
Threat Intelligence Protection/Attribution. This service combines advanced machine learning and graph data models to analyze billions of endpoint events and spot and correlate anomalies to alert you when an attack is underway. CSC’s analysis helps you understand the adversaries’ motives, anticipate their actions, and prevent them from causing damage to your organization. Our analysis also provides visibility into breaking events that matter to your industry, brand, infrastructure, users and customers.
Integration into our global Cyber Risk Management Centers. We provide 24x7 management and monitoring of all endpoints, as well as integration with our Cyber Risk Management Centers, helping clients manage risk, overcome the most extreme threats and gain end-to-end visibility of their enterprise governance and compliance posture.
CSC Risk Management Consulting. Our risk management consultants will deploy proven tools and methodologies to perform internal and external vulnerability assessments that cover everything from single systems to your entire enterprise, providing services ranging from nonintrusive compliance scans to full-scale penetration tests. We’ll give you a clear understanding of your susceptibility to intrusion via the Internet or through insider threats, and we’ll provide insight into trends and root causes to help your organization meet its compliance and security goals.
