Sampan Announces FireTower Guard Business Security Platform
FireTower Guard Business and Business Enhanced are tailored for PC networks that are targeted by hackers known as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).Cyber-security and system recovery applications developer Sampan Security announced the availability of FireTower Guard Business and Business Enhanced for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and Windows Server 2003/2008/2012, which expand on the security technology introduced in the consumer-oriented FireTower Guard Personal. FireTower Guard Business and Business Enhanced are tailored for enterprise PC networks that are often targeted by hackers collectively known as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). APT campaigns frequently make use of spear-phishing tactics because they are essential to get high-ranking targets to open phishing emails. For example, a company’s LinkedIn page will provide the names of employees, and one of those individual's publicly available LinkedIn page may reveal his or her corporate email address. The person's Facebook profile may include details about their personal life. From there, it isn't difficult for a criminal to create a personalized spear-phishing attack with enough information to appear genuine. FireTower Guard Business protects against the theft of proprietary information and disruption of operations, and is designed to reduce the cost of information security and facilitates the containment and recovery of network intrusions. The solution is offered as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription-based service designed for small and midsize businesses (SMBs). FireTower Guard Business Enhanced is a complete on-site solution for large business networks with strict privacy requirements.
FireTower Guard also comes equipped with Cyber Console (CyCon), a central network management tool for monitoring and managing networks of FireTower Guard-protected PCs. CyCon allows security administrators to detect and contain malware on endpoint PCs while automatically data-mining at-risk PCs to improve situational awareness and enhance network-wide security.
