SGA Cyber Security Forms Strategic Emerging Technology Alliances to Improve an Organization's Cybersecurity Posture.
Hillsborough, NJ, September 3, 2015 (Newswire.com) - SGA Cyber Security, Inc. forms strategic emerging technology alliances to deliver advanced solutions and expertise to improve an organization’s cybersecurity posture.
"Organizations should strive to achieve and maintain a baseline cybersecurity posture, driven by business needs and risk tolerance with a balance of people, technology, and processes," said Wayne Scarano, Chief Executive Officer at SGA Cyber Security, Inc. “As business needs drive the demand for new technological solutions, organizations need to ensure critical data is secure. We are proud and excited to partner with the best established and emerging providers in the industry.”
With Sophos, an established industry leader, SGA is helping firms achieve a solid baseline posture protecting networks, endpoints, and data against typical threats. With Sophos Cloud, SGA is moving on-premise solutions to their integrated and accessible cloud, eliminating the overhead of maintaining servers and software. It’s the only security solution that protects Windows and Mac and manages mobile devices.
As business needs drive the demand for new technological solutions, organizations need to ensure critical data is secure. We are proud and excited to partner with the best established and emerging cybersecurity providers in the industry.
For private clouds, business to business applications, internal applications, and hybrids, SGA has embraced the breakthrough Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture with Vidder’s PrecisionAccess SaaS solution. “PrecisionAccess defeats all network attacks without false positives or false negatives,” said Scarano. “It’s secure because your applications are dark to the Internet - you can’t attack what you can’t see. It’s a game changer that dramatically improves your cybersecurity posture so you can concentrate on opportunities not threats.”
While anti-virus vendors are doing an extraordinary job trying to keep pace with the volume of new malware, new approaches are needed. SGA implements Cylance endpoint protection to thwart zero-day threats and morphed malware. Cylance Protect is based on machine learning and artificial intelligence, and is signature-less. “Cylance Protect is low impact and can run stand-alone or next to traditional anti-virus solutions,” said Scarano.
Employees are using cloud apps, Software as a Service (SaaS), at an increasing pace. Some are sanctioned by IT but most are not. Data flowing from the organization’s computers and mobile devices to the cloud needs to be discovered, analyzed, and understood while protecting sensitive information. Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) provide cloud security and govern usage for thousands of cloud apps, including the ones you trust and ones you don’t. SGA has teamed up with CASB leader Netskope to provide cloud discovery, analysis, policies, and data loss prevention (DLP) for both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps.
SGA understands the cybersecurity threat landscape is ever evolving, not stagnant. “We are continuously exploring emerging solutions as businesses embrace new technologies and the bad actors exploit vulnerabilities resulting in new threats,” said Scarano.
For example, firms cast a digital shadow which leaves an electronic trail of their activities in the surface and deep web. This shadow can leave an organization vulnerable to outsider threats such as corporate espionage, competitive intelligence, and exploitation of weak points to launch targeted cyber attacks. SGA recommends Digital Shadows who provides cyber situational awareness to prevent, detect and contain cyber-related incidents.
On-premises and remote location servers for critical infrastructure (Active Directory, DNS, Branch Offices, high value applications) have an exposed platform stack: hardware, firmware, virtualization, operating system, and the application workload. The solution is to deploy hyper-secure servers which are manufactured with a root-of-trust throughout the stack and is tamper-resistant. SkySecure is a cloud managed on-premises secure server infrastructure and the first commercial zero-trust system that is turn-key to deploy and operate. SGA deploys Skyport’s SkySecure servers at both client locations and our Level (3) Tier-1 data center.
SGA is proud to sponsor the following summits and conference:
September 18th, 2015 – NYC – Cyber Security Summit – Millennium Broadway Hotel
October 21st, 2015 – Boston – Cyber Security Summit – Back Bay Events Center
October 28th-30th, 2015 – Atlantic City – NJ/DV HIMSS 8th Annual Fall Conference
