Our Blog: Stuff we think you should know

Haber Group has been serving the New York area since 2000, providing IT Support such as technical helpdesk support, computer support, and consulting to small and medium-sized businesses.

NexGen Endpoint Protection - Cylance Protect

Part of our responsibility as your Managed Services Provider is to make sure that your data is protected from threats that are getting more numerous and aggressive.  We address changes and enhancements in technology as they are appropriate to you.  We test them as to their effectiveness.  Any technology that we bring to you, we already use, in house, at Haber Group.

Today we want to discuss: “How does bad software get into your company?”  Unfortunately, the answer, while simple is difficult or impossible to prevent.  It’s people!  You and your staff.  They click on things that they shouldn’t.

The paths into your company are emails with links or links from bad websites.  It’s rare that you are attacked via your managed firewall and even rarer that anything gets through.  Even though you and your staff are not administrators of your local PC, you can still run programs and certain programs will cause havoc.

 To prevent this, we want you to utilize three different methods to prevent access to these bad links:

  • Mimecast Threat Protection to filter bad links in emails
  • Firewall Gateway Threat Protection to filter out malicious links from the web
  • A NextGen Antivirus product

 Current AV software will catch and prevent many types of Malware, but they are not up to the task of dealing with Zero-Day Threats.  They currently depend upon downloading virus signatures to look for bad-behavior.  This can also make them a heavy load on your computer.

Haber Group has been researching and testing NextGen antivirus.  We have selected the only product that we have found that protects against zero-day threats and Ransomware.  It’s called Cylance and it’s amazing.  You can read about it Here.  It’s a bundle of a few Cylance products.

It is not an inexpensive piece of software but we feel that it’s so important we are making it available to our Managed Clients at close to our cost.  We are not charging for installation or configuration.  It’s so important that we are making this a required addition for our managed clients.

We are scheduling two Webinars:  2:00pm - Wednesday, September 14, 2017 and 4:00pm - Thursday, September 21, 2017.  Hopefully you will be able to make one. try to be on one of them.  After these we will begin scheduling the deployment.  If you are interested in getting started sooner, let me know.

Please Click Signup Link.

The deployment involves two phases:  Installation on all Laptops. Workstations and servers. Running in monitoring mode for a week.  Then going live on the product

We take your protection seriously and we know that you do to.  Please feel free to share your thoughts with me or to contact me for further clarification.
