Despite of all forms of protection and scanning there’s still a change that a hacker is trying to penetrate into your network, this is where our Canary comes in and alarms you in silence.
The Canary is a virtual device which will be placed in your company’s internal network. The intention of this device is purely based on listening until someone is trying to make connection with the device itself. In a normal situation nobody would have the intention to connect to this device.
How does the canary work?
When a hacker penetrated your network due to a phishing attack or malware for example, he or she will be trying to gain more information about your network. Whenever this happens the hacker has to make use of certain exploration tools to see which systems will react or to see where internal documents are saved, for example.
By this exploration the Guardian360 Canary will be touched and as a reaction it will alarm. In this way you get quickly informed about the hack and helps you to react on this hack as fast as possible. Which reduces the change that the hack will have dramatic consequences.
One of the biggest problems according to this kind of incidents is that the majority of the companies find out that they have been hacked or had a breach after months or even years. With the use of the Guardian360 Canary you know that you are being hacked, at the moment a hacker is exploring your network. In this way you get to know of the incident in an early stage and the data breach could even be prevented.
