Pinup: Fortscale – Leader In Cyber Security Analytics

A leader in the field of cyber security, Fortscale offers organizations of all sizes the opportunity to implement enterprise-class cyber analytics to protect valuable corporate data and intellectual property from potential threats.

Founded in 2012 by a group of Israeli high-technology professionals with expertise in cyber security, Fortscale developed an innovative, scalable analytics solution that enables credentialed users to identify even the most surreptitious patterns that could lead to hidden attacks. The company’s proprietary tools protect user organizations from targeted threats via hijacked credentials as well as insider attacks. Moreover, the Fortscale model delivers intelligent, automated protection against the threat or corruption of data, financial assets, and intellectual property without the need for additional information technology personnel or specialized training.

Fortscale’s management and research and development teams possess critical experience in cyber security; many of the company’s team members preciously served in the Israeli Intelligence Corps. Their specialized training promoted the development of cutting-edge software solutions that optimize an organization’s ability to isolate unusual patterns, locate the source of threats, and investigate activity that could lead to an attack or theft. Because targeted attack campaigns endure over an average of 356 days, organizations without the most advanced cyber security solutions often miss many chances to thwart these criminals in their tracks.

The vast availability of data from technology sources, as well as its value in terms of information and assets, make cyber attacks an increasingly lucrative option for criminals, competitors, and even governments. These hackers garner information about an organization over a period of time. In many cases, they compromise authorized users and systems to gradually infiltrate the company’s structure and appropriate information slowly but steadily. Traditional security measures fail to provide adequate protection, big data security analytics such as that developed by Fortscale offers the best defense against cyber threats.

With its Fortscale 1.0 solution scheduled for release this year and several private deployments in the works, the company recently earned recognition from CRN as one of the Top 10 Coolest Big Data Startups. Backed by a knowledgeable advisory board and pioneering investors, the organization, which has offices in New York City and Tel Aviv, provides strong protection with a low rate of false positives and keen analytic capabilities.

2017 Brings DLP Technology and IoT’s Weaknesses to Light

DLP Technology In regards to data loss prevention (DLP), in the last five years many companies rushed to implement DLP solutions without taking the time to first identify the data that should not transit egress points. Most of these rushed implementations have not been successful. Security analysts, in particular 451 Research, have been recommending that companies should first identify and classify data before deploying DLP. Unfortunately, we are just now seeing companies execute this approach.…
