Fidelis Cybersecurity unveils Fidelis Elevate
Fidelis Elevate aims to improve the security posture by providing automated detection and response
Fidelis Cybersecurity, a maker of products and services for detecting and stopping advanced cyberattacks, will use its appearance at GITEX Technology Week 2017 to demonstrate how its latest platform, Fidelis Elevate, empowers IT security teams and organisations.
According to the vendor, Fidelis Elevate improves the security posture by providing automated detection and response across both networks and endpoints.
"If recent attacks like WannaCry and Petya have taught us anything, it is that traditional security defences are no longer capable of combatting modern cyber-attacks and protecting organisations' most sensitive data," said Jason Mical, vice president, Endpoint Products at Fidelis Cybersecurity. "Enterprises have evolved with a patchwork of systems strung together that create more complexity than the problems they solve.
Mical said security teams without complete visibility across networks and endpoints don't have the capability to prevent and detect threats, and the automation to maximise resources, which has resulted in enterprises being unable to detect and respond to the cyber threats facing them today.
The company said Fidelis Elevate offers content rich network and endpoint visibility to detect both known and unknown threats. Enterprises can utilise its automated detection and response capability to ensure protection from security incidents happens immediately, and historical data is delivered to security analysts for subsequent action.
"In the event of an attack, security teams need to answer a few key questions - did the attack reach the target, was the attack activated, what else happened prior to and after the attack and did this activity occur on any other system in my environment," he said. "Fidelis Elevate automatically delivers these answers, which provide the critical information needed for security teams to effectively analyse and respond to modern day threats."
Mical added: "As a case in point, with Fidelis Elevate, a global financial institution was able to improve efficiency in identifying compromises by 60%, reduce response-related costs by 17% and shrink alert resolution times by 50%. I look forward to using GITEX as a platform to demonstrate how our automated detection and response solution can help Middle East enterprises achieve similar efficiencies and drastically improve their security posture in their fight against today's ever evolving cyber-threats."
