BAE Systems rings Cloud Security Solutions to New Zealand and Australia
BAE Systems Applied Intelligence is going to bring its Cloud Security solutions to the area of New Zealand and Australia for the first time. It is introducing security products that will hopefully defend users against email based threats such as targeted and ‘Zero Day’ attacks. The solutions are supposedly very effective; they will reduce integration time and complexity while simultaneously offers an alternative to on premise cloud software and hardware.
BAE Systems Applied Intelligence director cyber security products a proclaimed that many nosiness are naïve when it comes to email based threats, as many cyber attacks begin with an email. Blount stated, “Whether this is a targeted spear-phishing campaign or a shotgun-approach distribution of ransomware, the likelihood of success is unfortunately very high in the absence of the necessary protection.”
One of the first services being offered in the New Zealand and Australia region is its Email Protection Service, which provides extensive protection against some of the most advanced threats. “With 70 to 90 per cent of malware being unique to any single organization, the most difficult attacks to defend against are Zero Day attacks,” Blount said. ”These are attacks that are unknown or have not previously been seen and that, as a consequence, require advanced defense.” The main element of the Email Protection Service is the Zero Day Prevention, which analyzes emails within the cloud for malicious content before it may reach the recipient.
One of the largest risks to businesses is the accidental or intentional leak of data. Because many companies are quite unprepared for this type of issue, BAE systems provides Insider Threat Prevention service, which will make it considerably easier to find as well as investigate such issues.
Blount also added “Our Cloud-based cyber security solutions leverage BAE Systems’ expertise as a leader in risk analytics and cyber defense. With this launch, we are introducing A/NZ businesses to a new kind of protection against sophisticated cyber-attacks. Because the solutions are cloud-based, they are easy to buy, consume and manage with a short delivery time frame. And they have the inherent flexibility to scale up or down as required, so companies assess what they need and have a service which can grow with their organization,”
