Why do I need cyber security?

As an increasing number of systems are digitised, these systems become vulnerable to cyber attacks. Cyber security measures proactively protect your network and systems from such attacks.  

 

In the United States, network intrusion attacks—which WebSensing's products defend against—are the second most common type of cyber attack (32%) according to BakerHostetler. Similarly, Centrify identified the primary attack points for data breaches in the United States, finding that network and cloud ranked second and third behind software. 

Are there any non-cyber security benefits to WebSensing products?

Yes. While cyber security is our main value proposition, our products have additional benefits such as secure cloud analytics integration and consequential efficiencies.  

What is a VIN?

A virtual isolated network (VIN) is a hardware solution to replace physical airgaps. As an alternative to increasingly impractical and expensive airgaps, Web Sensing has developed the VIN – an electronic airgap realized through FPGA technology. The VIN is designed for organizations that want a middle ground between an air-gapped network and one that is connected to the Internet such as a virtual private network (VPN), which lacks the protections of a VIN. 

What is a diode?

A Diode is a network device that permits network traffic to flow in only one direction across it. Any device connected to a Diode will be able to either send network traffic or receive it, but not both.

 

A Diode allows businesses to connect sensitive corporate assets to the Cloud for analysis, without permitting any traffic -- or embedded attacks -- to reach back to the asset from the Internet.

What is a kernel integrity monitor?

The Web Sensing Linux Kernel Integrity Monitor (LKIM) is a device that is hidden within a computer and monitors the Linux Operating System and its associated Device Drivers for Kernel-Level Zero-day Attacks. A Zero-day Attack is an advanced cyber-attack that has not been seen previously by network defenders and consequently cannot be detected by anti-virus software.
