Do you know every device on your network?

This subject is frequently a shocker….

Even the most diligent of IT managers can get stung by unexpected or ‘rogue’ devices appearing in their network, innocent or otherwise.

All you have to do is read the headlines to know that the conventional approach to IT security is failing. The rising number of security incidents globally reached 1,792 with nearly 1.4bn data records being compromised and billions of dollars lost along with reputations irreparable damaged. That is a year on year rise of 86% and a clear indication that that the criminals are winning the cyber security war and organization’s need to change their approach.

As part of our complete network security stage, Datasharp are pleased to offer network threat detection and behavioral threat detection, therefore allowing our customers to identify and monitor all devices.  If any changes are noticed outside defined thresholds, this can often be a sign of thing like:

  • Hijacked IP addresses
  • Rogue devices
  • Infected machines
  • Violation of data policy from staff

In the world of cyber crime, we tend to put companies into one of two categories; Those who have been hacked and those who don’t know they’ve been hacked.  Obviously the former are in a better position, as they can do something about it.
