Cybersecurity and proactive IT provider Novi has launched a new service to help Irish businesses identify hidden threats on their networks. The company has invested €160,000 to develop and launch CyberView, a new cloud-based cybersecurity analysis and reporting platform.
Cyber-attacks have become increasingly sophisticated, and several strains of malware have evolved to hide within IT networks that they successfully infiltrate. Traditional antivirus solutions are frequently unable to detect this malware, allowing it to lie dormant and activate when it can cause maximum impact.
Novi CyberView is a cloud-based service that is designed to identify these hidden threats and make users aware of them. It collects logs and internet usage patterns from businesses’ firewalls which are then analysed and converted into easily understandable reports. CyberView processes tens of thousands of events on a daily basis.
George O’Dowd, Managing Director, Novi, said: “Cyber-attacks are evolving constantly, increasing in frequency while simultaneously growing in their potential to cause financial and reputational damage to businesses. Many of the newer strains of malware are also designed to evade the very best antivirus systems, and can therefore go undetected for years. To protect against these advanced threats, businesses need a comprehensive insight into the hidden goings on in the IT environment.
“This is where Novi CyberView comes in. As an automated service, CyberView is a huge step forward when compared to other cybersecurity monitoring and reporting services on the market. It monitors suspicious network activity and collects logs, gathering this valuable information in easy-to-understand reports which help organisations to pinpoint hidden threats that might otherwise go unnoticed. Together with Novi’s suite of cybersecurity services, including our off-site data recovery service Novi AirGap, and Novi PatchGuard, our vulnerability and patch management service, CyberView will enable IT teams to more effective defence against emerging threats.”
