How you can protect your business from known and unknown cyber threats

Anti-Virus Vendors can only know what they are already aware of.

They are only aware of the threats that they have already discovered, but what about new, undiscovered malware?

Certainly, some AV Vendors can deploy some Artificial Intelligence (AI) to look for strange, abnormal behaviour and activity on your network, but by the time this is detected, has the damage already been done?

Traditionally, Sandbox technology has been used to mitigate this type of threat, but now over 26% of all malware is Sandbox aware and will employ multiple sandbox evasion techniques. So, sandboxing alone is no longer enough to mitigate these types of malware.

By using OPSWAT CDR technology, you can ingest files safely into your network, safe in the knowledge that all potential threats have been removed.

Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR), also known as data sanitisation, assumes all files are malicious and sanitises and rebuilds each file ensuring full usability with safe content.

By sanitising each file and removing any potential embedded threats, CDR effectively ‘disarms’ all file-based threats including; known and unknown threats; complex and sandbox aware threats; threats that are equipped with malware evasion technology such as fully undetectable malware, VMware detection, obfuscation and many others.

LoughTec has an extensive track record in assisting customers with their IT infrastructure across several sectors, including pharmaceutical, education, health, agri-food and legal. LoughTec’s specialisms include cybersecurity, remote working solutions and managed IT services.
