It’s an unfortunate reality that more and more people are falling victim to hackers, with the average cost of each cyberattack totaling out at $3.86 million, and as we all know, most of them originate from exploiting the human factor. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to protect your employees from cyberattacks while they’re on the job: CyberNite. CyberNite provides each of your employees’ personal security against hackers looking to steal information or otherwise compromise your company’s data, giving you peace of mind that your organization’s information and networks are safe.
Recent successful phishing attacks prove hackers are becoming too sophisticated and personal for the standard anti-phishing solutions, mainly since they do not hold any clear technical indicators standard security systems expect to find in a malicious message.
Organizations should look for solutions capable of covering these new attacks.
A solution such as this can detect and identify communication anomalies and make the end user aware of the attack and its significant characteristics. This way, they are able to recognize a malicious email, text message, or chat message when they encounter one, even if it looks like a legitimate message.
The next generation of multi-channel cyber defense systems is personalized and tailored to the end-user. It learns the user’s characteristics, contacts, and behavior so they can determine if the user is being attacked.
CyberNite is one such system, which detects abnormal communication, alerts the user before taking any action, explains what the issue is, and prepares the user to respond to it.
Cybernite is not only analyzing the message characteristics to understand the message’s true nature, but also the relationship between sender and recipient, past communications, subjects, language, terms, and type of communication.
A real-life recent case:
David is a customer of XLZ Technologies. He usually receives invoices from Suzan at the end of each month.
Last month he got the mail from Suzan on the 15th, the thing is, it wasn’t really Suzan, an hacker took over her account and sent the invoice and payment request. The mail included an identical invoice format, but, with a change of bank account details, “Suzan” asked David to change the payment routing and demanded that it will be transferred ASAP.
Since everything looks legitimate- the sender, attachment, language, and standard E-Mail security system will find nothing suspicious about the message and deliver it to David’s inbox. In order to deal with any questions David might have, the hacker added a rule on Suzan’s account which routed messages from David to the trash account in order to avoid questions regarding the transfer delivered to Suzan.
Of course, David isn’t a cyber expert, he works with dozens of payment requests a day, so he changed the money transfer destination and transferred a large amount of money to the hacker’s account.
A very successful one for the hacker.
When we deployed Cybernite and analyzed those emails using Cybernite’s analysis, we discovered Cybernite would have alerted David several times during the process.
Cybernite will notify David that this may be a Business Email Compromise (BEC) attack, which reroutes funds to the attacker’s account. Cybernite will identify the change of Bank Account number and warn of the manipulative nature of the message.
Cybernite will engage David in a dialogue to examine the anomalies, in order to determine a clear-cut decision – this is a scam!
This is one example of how Cybernite can understand and identify sophisticated attacks which have no clear malicious indications, the sender is trustworthy and known, there is no malicious link, no dangerous attachment, and even the language is legitimate.
In addition, Cybernite has a knowledge base of millions of known attacks, so it can determine whether an attack is known or not.
Combined with unique AI technologies, Cybernite is the next-generation solution for sophisticated attacks.
