Stormshield Industry Solutions

While some attacks are broad-based and go after any target possible, some industries faced targeted attacks that leverage the knowledge of their operations, infrastructure and employees/partners to find a way in, move around within and extract information.

Stormshield protects some of the largest organizations from some of the most targeted industries around the world. Take advantage of the Stormshield solution to protect your systems, your data, and your compliance status, even when under direct attack from a determined adversary.

 

Banking and Financial Services

Subject to advanced targeted attacks, financial institutions are the leading target of cyber-criminals and, as a result, are frontrunners in securing their environments from cyber threats. There is no second chance when it comes to protecting financial and other sensitive data while complying with changing industry regulations. Evolving threats from highly motivated hackers continue to identify and exploit security gaps and unpatched vulnerabilities. Stormshield identifies and stops even these sophisticated targeted attacks. This includes attacks that are hidden in commonly used applications like WORD and those injected directly into memory that breeze right past other protections.

With Stormshield NGEPP, there is no requirement for signatures, no reputation scores to keep updated, no dependency on pre-defined behavioral patterns. This essentially means - no more zero-day exposure.  ATMs, teller workstations, endpoints, laptops and servers are protected at all times – whether they have a connection to the network or not. Stormshield MIPS is an integrated element in the Stormshield Endpoint Security family of products that includes additional protections including options for device control, network access control, application control, anti-virus and disk and file encryption.

Retail and Point of Sale

The retail industry in under attack and the volume of data breaches and the amount of data stolen and credit card fraud losses have skyrocketed. It seems that every few weeks there is a public disclosure of yet another record breaking retail breach.  Effective security and compliance are crucial for retail businesses to protect their customers’ data and maintain consumer trust.  Non-compliance with the PCI DSS mandate will result in substantial fines and penalties, increased transaction costs as well as the risk of being barred from processing credit card transactions. PoS systems, desktops, laptops and back-office servers in a distributed retail environment, with specialized operating systems for disparate computers, require a strong security defense.  

With Stormshield NGEPP, there is no requirement for signatures, no reputation scores to keep updated, no dependency on pre-defined behavioral patterns. This means - no more zero-day exposure. Endpoints are protected at all times – whether they have a connection to the network or not. Stormshield MIPS is an integrated element in the Stormshield Endpoint Security family of products that includes additional protections including options for device control, network access control, application control, anti-virus and disk and file encryption. This allows Stormshield to make a bold claim: Stormshield will recognize and stop the biggest malware threat to retailers today, memory scraping malware that gets past the perimeter security protections onto a PoS.

Healthcare and Insurance

Targeted data theft breaches are becoming more prevalent in the healthcare industry. Cybercriminals recognize the value of the electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) which can range from names and Social Security numbers to fingerprints and much more. The challenges healthcare is facing are reduction of security risks, protection of sensitive data and compliance with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Healthcare organizations that accept credit cards are also subject to PCI DSS compliance. 

The healthcare industry has similar challenges to banking and retail in identifying and stopping malware but, in addition, has an almost unique need to provide comprehensive encryption capabilities.  This encryption protection must be implemented in a way that does not interfere with the healthcare industries primary goal – patient health.  Stormshield’s comprehensive integrated encryption capabilities allow the healthcare industry’s workers to continue to use their existing processes while providing file encryption, disk encryption, device encryption and workspace encryption.  For stopping malwares, with Stormshield NGEPP there is no requirement for signatures, no reputation scores to keep updated, no dependency on pre-defined behavioral patterns. This means - no more zero-day exposure. Endpoints are protected at all times – whether they have a connection to the network or not. Stormshield MIPS is an integrated element in the Stormshield Endpoint Security family of products that includes additional protections including options for device control, network access control, application control, anti-virus and disk and file encryption.

Government Agencies and Institutions

Local through federal governments are the largest targets in the world for cybercriminals.  The multiple recent successful cyber-attacks on the US government illustrate how large the payload is that the attackers are after.  You not only have to deal with the same money motivated cyber-criminals who are attacking the business sectors data that can be monetized but you are also a target for other nation-states and hacktivists.  Some of these attacking organizations have virtually unlimited money, technology and time.  Protecting government critical infrastructure and information, while complying with stringent sets of requirements from numerous agencies, is crucial.  Against such a threat and with the sophistication of the attackers, you cannot be dependent on traditional endpoint protections – they will fail!

Data loss prevention is a global priority with flexible encryption being a key requirement. With Stormshield NGEPP, there is no requirement for signatures, no reputation scores to keep updated, no dependency on pre-defined behavioral patterns. This means - no more zero-day exposure. Stormshield MIPS is an integrated element in the Stormshield Endpoint Security family of products that includes additional protections including options for device control, network access control, application control, anti-virus and disk and file encryption.
