Skyport Systems Prevents Security Breaches With New Threat Analytics

Skyport Systems, a leading secure hyper-converged infrastructure provider for the hybrid enterprise, today announced the addition of threat analytics to its hyper-converged system, SkySecure. SkySecure delivers a turnkey hyper-converged solution that combines secure computer, virtualization, and network security controls to run critical applications, like Microsoft Active Directory, with less complexity and greater peace of mind. SkySecure Threat Analytics can detect administrative account and credential misuse, providing actionable insight that can help mitigate and prevent security breaches. 

In 2015, over 75 percent of all compromised records due to data breaches involved the loss or theft of a privileged credential. Attackers used stolen administrative access for weeks without detection, resulting in breach costs in the millions.

"The recent Mirai Botnet attack is a wake-up call. Our increasingly connected universe has opened a Pandora's Box of security vulnerabilities that should have every company scrambling to assess their risk. Prevention surely is key, but the reality is security breaches are not an ‘if’ but rather a ‘when’ which means detection and speed to resolution are critical,” said Tamara McCleary, CEO & Brand Ambassador of Thulium. “The addition of threat analytics to Skyport Systems' SkySecure, is the level of enhancement and support organizations need to consider as they look to bolster their risk-mitigation strategies. Every organization is vulnerable to security breaches and compromised data. Enterprises looking to survive and thrive are obligated to become more vigilant now than ever before about the security of their environment."

With SkySecure Threat Analytics, organizations can:

  • Detect and prevent threats that compromise the entire environment, including Golden Ticket and Pass the Ticket attacks
  • Audit Active Directory authentication protocols without adding complex infrastructure or analytics tools to the environment
  • Easily identify common Active Directory problems such as reuse of service accounts and identify suspicious login behaviors
  • Provide an effective audit trail for your existing third party tools and traffic history for Active Directory Domain Controllers to aid in security audits and incident response
  • Provide a common platform for audit and analytics of all Active Directory domain controllers and critical services within your organization
  • Enhance compliance reporting through the use of tamper resistant event logging and correlation

“Enterprises are investing heavily in converged infrastructure, which is helping to make management and operations much easier and more efficient. But, this infrastructure also needs to be secured. Skyport Systems has seamlessly integrated security into the fabric of the new modern converged infrastructure,” said Art Gilliland, CEO, Skyport Systems. “While the bad guys get smarter every day, so too does the overall functionality and capabilities of our infrastructure. With direct visibility into key authentication protocols that Active Directory and Windows operating systems rely on, we’ve empowered our users with actionable information to defend against compromise.”
